Review of the older formulation, the new one IS NOT worth seeking out, very watered down and different.

Dune is art. That is how I would describe this perfume. It is a marvel. You either love it or hate it, and I love it. When I say it is art, it is because this is so complex, and so different. It smells a bit like an offshoot of Cartier's Must, but it has it's own …

The original Dune prior to reformulation is in high demand, so it's harder to find it anywhere, or you'll find a half full bottle (and that hardly seems worth it). There something to be said about Dune's ability to stay on the market after 26 years and thousands of perfumes that have come and gone since then. This is truly unique and not at all what you'd consider a beach …Read more

I'm rating the older formulation of this, which is rich and deep with amber. It makes you think of the sea side, a hot day at the beach. This to me is an abstract perfume with many layers. You have to wear it to appreciate it. It's not one you will love on paper. This is good for warm weather, it's also beautiful in cooler weather. Other notes include mandarin, peony, and vanilla …Read more

I discovered this scent via a super cheap drugstore imitation circa 1993. Even with the poor quality imitation, I knew this was something unique. It spoke volumes to my soul. I understood for the first time how a perfume could provide the tranquility that religion is powerless to bestow . Dune discerns one's inner demons, hauntings, joys and satisfactions. The scent evokes thwarted …Read more

Dune is a truly magnificent perfume on the right person - I am not that person. I have been trying Dune every five years or so, ever since it came out, always hoping that as my body chemistry changed, that it would become magnificent on me. We're simply not meant to be.

On me Dune smells like beautifully preserved old clothes that have been locked away in an attic for years with a …

Soft, woody, oriental, yet fresh. A precursor to serge Lutens orientals, vintage Dune forshadows gourmand, yet is not cloying. I almost want to say it opens with the crispness of SL Gris Clair and dries down to something like Chergui.

To call Vintage dune edt an oriental is almost to do it a disservice. It's is nothing like a modern gourmand sweet, powdery, cloying oriental. Nor …

I had to try Dune because I read this is Kate Middleton's signature scent. I believe what I tested was an EDT. On my body chemistry, this smells anything but young, beautiful, royal! It's a strange "old lady" smell. The bottle, however, is quite lovely.

Most of Dior's range smells way better than this! J'adore, Hypnotic Poision, the Miss Dior range, are …

Dune for me is really reflect my oriental side. I'm Indonesian, and I really familiar with this kind of scent. Dune exactly smell like traditional scrub called Lulur and it's so delicate, dark, delicious and really oriental. I got compliment from Mum, boyfriend and friend and they said this is the right scent for me..gives the masculine edge, Not that sickening sweet candy-ish fake …Read more

The new Dune is a bright, sparkling scent with the mosses crisp and clear, lying low to the skin. But where's the punch of the old Dune? It's supposed to take me away, at least it used to. But the new Dune takes me nowhere, and I waited and waited. The opening is a ghost of what it should be, what it used to be. It lasts for barely an hour and quietly slips away. Shame, shame and more …Read more

I am not going to repeat all the accolades you can read below but I could not resist adding a review on one of my favourites. Dune is a one of a kind fragrance based on slightly bitter dark green and herbal accords. It is a fiercely independent and intelligent scent - no crowd pleasing here.
Update on January 16th, 2016: I like smelling Dune on the skin next to Shalimar: its subtle …
