Not really fond. There is a harsh synthetic aquatic note with something I smell as off-milk in the opening.
Thread: Dior Fahrenheit 32.
Like Fleur de Male, this is very flowery. I think this one is a kind of unisex fragrance. Maby a bit to feminine as a male-fragrance.. But it smell very nice! What do you think of it?
I do not think it is "feminine". I also am not real fond of it.

I do think that Fleur de Male is very femme but Fahrenheit 32 has a very deep vetiver note that runs through it. The note give a spicy yet raw sharp off set making the scent very masculine.
I think 32 gave me hope that Dior can create something daring again -
At one point I liked it but it grew on me in a negative way - vanilla/neroli over vetiver? I can see why someone would dig it but I don't. There's a big gulf in Dior between the brilliant (Dior Homme) and the trite (Higher Energy). I wish they hadn't used Fahrenheit's name, but that's probably what accounts for it being in continued production.
When I first tried it, it was on display at the Dior cosmetic counter. I was in a hurry and quickly spritzed my wrists on my way thru the store. I was very pleasantly surprised and thought, "Finally, a new release that isn't a fruity-floral!" A couple of weeks later I went back and spoke to the SA when I couldn't find the bottle. I described it and what I could remember of the name ("It had numbers in it."). She looked at me blankly for a few seconds, then said, "Oh, that's a new men's release, Fahrenheit 32. It's upstairs with the men's fragrances." Men's? It never occurred to me.

Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.

Really nothing special, and I'd rather wear the cheapo, Ignition by Lomani, anyway. Also, I've found that several "women's" frags do the vanilla thing better: London by Paul Smith, Presence d'une femme, Amour de Cacao (which also has chocolate), etc., and of course Shalimar Light.

I have it and love it, though many find it boring and linear. Its a very much toned down, sweeter and creamier version of the original which I am a huge fan of. And i do very much like FdM as well. If its TOO feminine for you then don't consider it. Personally if you find something nice enough, why bother if its too masculine or feminine? TONS of floral based frags are marketed for men for that matter.
i used to love this dior, but i gave it to my dad; simply i cant stand it.. theres something dry and loud that make me sick, but i think is a nice fragance, sillage and longevity is amazing...
Yes the sillage and longevity of this scent is amazing for a dior men's scent
I think i like Geir by Geir Ness better. I also find some similarities with Kenzo Power.
These two share some similarities. Wich one do you prefer? Geir ness longevity and sillage is amazing!

There is one review in the database that likens the two.
My experience does not match that. I didn't like 32 on first impression; I like Geir and wear it infrequently.
I have owned both. Geir is really nice. F32 almost made me sick. Geir is the best of the two. Easily.

Geir du Male 32 smells like a wet raccoon sitting in an English garden.
He he... Look at the 3 first answers here. Some people just has to criticise.. To the rest, thank you for your opinions!
I like Dior Fahrenheit 32 - makes a good spring summer fragrance.
I own it, and wear it now and then. It kind of reminds me of Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Lemon vanilla. Not one of my favorites, but not bad.
I own it and love it as well. so does my wife. Been wearing it alot these past couple weeks.
This was my signature for a while (6 months or so). Its strange I never got the florals or the sweetness. It was very spicy vanilla to me. A bit different, I haven't smelled anything like it. I won't get it again, but enjoyed the time I had with it.
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."
Fahrenheit 32 smelled like spoiled milk on my skin. It literally turns my stomach. Even when I tried going lighter on the trigger I got the same result. Cool weather, hot weather, indoor and outdoor I got this spoiled milk smell! This was one of the worst fragrances I have ever owned. Just gross IMO.
