I must admit that it takes me back to my college days when I wore original Fahrenheit, Eternity, Cool Water, Polo Crest, Lagerfeld Photo, Liz Claiborne, and Polo Green (Original) in a regular weekly rotation. This is lighter and much more playful, but it definitely retains the distinctiveness of the original. It is ideal for summer, and is one of the few fragrances I can wear in 100 degree weather down here. Having said that, it is not a fragrance that I wear regularly- I have evolved past my old Farhrenheit days, but this was a wise purchase.
This would be a tumbs up for me if it wasn`t so light. I got very disappointed with the lack of sillage and longevity. It`s Fahrenheit less complex and intense. Take out most of the oily aspects of the violet, leave just something of the green leafy aroma of it, fade the leather base to something very close to skin, and put a bright citrus opening. It works out, you can still recognize the leather and violet signature of fahrenheit, and it`s sound fresher and pleasant on hot days. But it doesn`t last more than three hours, so if you want to wear it all day, you better take the bottle with you every place you go...
This is good stuff. No wonder all the positive reviews. A relative of Fahrenheit for sure, but so much brighter. No longer the dark, man-in-a-leather-jacket carrying a gasoline (petrol) canister vibe, but still strong and lovely. I like it!
I wear this one year round. Its sharp citrus with pepper, pepper and more constant pepper. I like how it picks up in winter and still has power, even though it is a summer named fragrance. The motor oil note from the original Fahrenheit is gone, and leaves the bright fruity notes with pepper sprinkled across the board. Its a simple yet amazing fragrance.
A citrusy violet that's sharp and boisterous. If Fahrenheit is too potent but you still like it, the summer version would be a good alternative.
The previous excellent reviews cover it well.... take the original Fahrenheit and give it some citrusy floral topnotes. Once the topnotes fade the heart is still all Fahrenheit = but toned down by about 50%. On top of the fantastic original there's a little bit of citrus that adds 'twang' well into the base. Not nearly as much of a sillage monster as the original, but it can definitely announce presence, especially with a moderate application.
