About this deal

Dior Fahrenheit EDT is a great, intense, leather, mild powdery violet leaf, spicy nutmeg, and musky floral fragrance. We simply rebottle them in smaller sizes to enable you to find your perfect fragrance without splashing out on a big bottle first. While masterfully blended, and an intriguing smell, what is off-putting to some is the summation of the key notes of licorice, boozy rum and bourbon do produce a syrupy medicinal Robotussin cough syrup kind of smell. I'm a sucker for fragrances that are made for and compliment strong, masculine, confident males (Argos Triumph of Bacchus, Terre D'Hermes EDT, Dior Homme Sport 2021, Dior Homme Parfum).

I am a woman and I find this quite unisex, leaning masculine, but not heavily masculine, at least this is how I smell it on my skin. This morning, I applied it, in fairly liberal fashion - I like my fragrance to last at least until the afternoon (to the degree that I'm gratituously reminded of it whenever I stop to notice), and I'm mostly at arm's length from others all day. So, although I looooove the opening of the original scent, I'm not using it so much now because of the funky dry down of this new bottle. Anyways, enough about comparing this to other flankers or Sauvage Elixir, this is fantastic and I think almost anybody could get into a fragrance like this.The opening is great and the vanilla-rum-violet leaf combo is very niche-like, a concept that is pretty much on pair with many other niche scents, but after 2h, the smell became a tamed, suede-like vanilla that fails to convince, despite being different and unique in a way.

Given Fahrenheit’s dna profile, that description makes no sense on paper but somehow Dior have pulled this off, and pulled it off very well. When the original Fahrenheit tires of snorting cheap cocaine from expensive hookers’ bottoms (or expensive cocaine from cheap hookers’ bottoms), this is what he wears to a black tie event: with a glass of aged rum, leather shoes and a decadent vanilla dessert. It reminds me of viktor and rolf's spicebomb extreme, but I love the addition of rum and bourbon vanilla.

I'll also just say that this is quite similar to Absolute, but that one is much warmer and more resinous and I think it actually does belong more in winter and fall weather, there's almost no freshness in the Absolute version whereas this retains a bit of freshness, but then it also has a sweet licorice, rum and vanillic vibe that rounds everything out. I was interested in picking it up but then saw there was a Parfum version, using rum and vanilla as some of its main notes. As the fragrance reaches its dry down, the vanilla completes its development enveloping the notes in a very aromatic but not overly sweet scent.

On my skin, it is mostly dark thick slightly woody leather with a bit of violet/ozonic notes noticeable on opening and non-sweet vanilla in drydown.It smells fantastic, it is a scent profile itself, there is definitely something wrong with anyone who doesn't like this scent and that's all.

My bottle is 2017 ( 7Y03 ) and it lasts 10-12 hours every time and 3-4 hours of solid projection within arms lenght and it still projects lightly after that. Perfumista is in no way affiliated with, or working in any form of partnership with, the brand owner. The EDT has nothing I know comparable to it while this one has many fragrances that smell similar in that boozy / vanilla / sweet register.where the orginal was an adonis biker wrapped in leather and breaking all the rules and hearts along the way. Holy crap, I sprayed this on my forearm at the local perfume retailer yesterday noon (27 hours ago), I could smell it all night (and could not get enough of it) and I still smell it very well on my skin after all that time, what the hell! Both are out in force here – the opening smells almost like sniffing a bottle of rum at a gas station while wearing a suede jacket, and a vague booziness lingers throughout the life of the fragrance. This will also likely stop anyone from committing a crime, as they know whoever is wearing this will likely have no fear, kick their ass, or is carrying a gun and will end their life if they mess around.
