    Default What Smells Like Fahrenheit By Christian Dior?

    This is one of my favorite scents but it is also very popular, What are other less known fragrances with a similar smell ?

    You should try Green Valley from Creed.

    Default NOTHING (I hope!)

    Not to offend or anything (I know that you like it), but I sincerely hope that NOTHING else smells like Fahrenheit by Christian Dior! I tried that once at Dillard's and HATED it! I asked the saleslady there, "People don't actually BUY this stuff, do they?" Since then, I've never felt the inclination to try anything else from the house of Christian Dior!

    The quoted part is the only thing I agree with from the previous post. I've tried quite a few and nothing smells remotely like Fahrenheit. Even though it's a very well known fragrance, it still smells unique, and I intend to keep this in my wardrobe (Maybe there are some niche, of which I cannot comment.)

    No two fragrances smell exactly alike. I suspect no two batches of the same perfume smell exactly alike. Nothings smell exactly like Farenheit but Grey Flannel comes very close.

    If you like light florals, you could try Givenchy Insensé.

    I find Tommy Bahama quite similar to Farenheit's drydown.

    You should try some of the Dior's, they're actually quite good, never vote out an entire line because of one fragrance, I did that with L'Artisan once, and I'm sorry I did. Not only do I have the fragrance that turned me off of the line and love it, but I've grown to appreciate them very much, and I have two of their frags now!

    Try Olympios by Missoni.

    I have Givenchy Green Energy and to me it smells like a lighter cousin of Fahrenheit. It even has the petroleum scent that Fahrenheit has, although substantially lighter.

    I never smelled Fahrenheit Summer, so I can't speak on any similarity.

    A lot of members have mentioned that Quimbaya Pour Homme smells very similar, but with some added spicy tang to it.

    Agree with Vijay. Quimbaya Pour Homme is the closest match I've found. Good price too. On the other hand, I don't find the slightest resemblence between Incense and Fahrenheit

    One of the two Bonds I own (Riverside Drive and Chez Bond) are very similar in initial impressions to Fahrenheit. I'll have to test again--it's likely Chez Bond--but I was very surprised when my wife subjected me to a blind smell test!

    Just wanted to mention that a while back there were people here suggesting that Paul smith London smells similar, though I never tried it. If anyone is familiar with London please share your thoughts.

    Lanvin Arpege for Men has the violet bit, and sort of reminds me of Fahrenheit in some ways. But nothing is really the same as it.

    I can't wear Fahrenheit as it brings on headache and nausea.

    How very interesting that you'd compare this disaster to Lanvin Arpège for Men! I own Arpège for Men myself and like it okay, although it's certainly not in my top five. The peppery sweet smell is unique, but I can't imagine how it could be related to the original Arpège for Women. Where are the aldehydes, and where's that "ping" that I've heard so much about?!? Lanvin probably just wanted to capitalize on the venerable name! I expected to like it more than I actually did, though, and longevity again is a big problem (on me, at least). It fades VERY rapidly. Plus debit: the bottle which, although attractive in an art deco sort of way, is quite difficult to hold and handle!

    I actually like Arpege quite a bit. But I get no similarity to Fahrenheit.

    Drat. I see I won't be the first to suggest Kiton, the only one listed so far that even smells remotely like Farenheit to my nose. With apologies to Tero, of course.

    But you have seconded it - which seems pretty useful in a thread where there seems to be little agreement on what smells like Fahrenheit.

    I have to second Quimbaya and Riverside Drive. For the record, though, I don't know if Riverside Drive is worth the money if you're just looking for a Fahrenheit stand-in. Quimbaya is good stuff.
