    Love Fahrenheit, always have and probably always will. Been meaning to get a new bottle for a while. Once got a great deal on a 50ml bottle - was around 20. Not seen any reductions on price though in a long time.

    I'm a fan. It is unique.

    BUT-I'm wearing Gucci II right now, and there are some notes that are similar, I think...maybe I'm nuts, though.

    You guys are all wrong: Missoni's Olympios is pretty similar.

    How could I have forgot about this? This is absolutely the closest thing to Fahrenheit.

    To be honest I cant see any perfumer being able to better fahrenheit, save tiny imperceptible things. Its one of those moments of divine inspiration. Like the Mona Lisa, Beethovens 5th, Michael Jacksons Thriller Album. Doesnt happen very often.

    Nice post. Couldn't agree more.

    To my nose, Kiton Men sits somewhere between Fahrenheit and GIT.
    Perhaps my nose is simply honing in on the violet?
    Anyway... while they do not smell the same, if you like Fahrenheit, you may like Kiton Men (the original version, not the black version).

    I remember trying to find a movie that could compare to the electrifying response I got from watching Casino and The Exorcist for the first time...Don't bother. Fahrenheit is pure magic!

    I don't know about you guys, but Antonio Bandera's Diavolo smells very, very similar to Fahrenheit, except for the petroleum note. It's extremely similar in my opinion and can be had for like 20 bucks max. If you like Fahrenheit but you don't like the petroleum note, try it out. It may not last so long as F, and it may not be as qualitative as it, but it does smell a lot like F!

    I do have to concour with someones mention of Lancome Hypnose Homme here, although it's slightly sweet and more of a spicy fougere. As for Fahrenheit itself, do try Fahrenheit Aqua as it is toned down Fahrenheit wich doesn't lack for longevity or projection, albeit the fact that Aqua flanker is not as much as heavy. One more thing, do not expect this to be an "ordinary aquatic". The only scent that, with Fahrenheit Aqua, is not an "ordinary" aquatic would be Boss Elements Aqua.

    I've been looking for a less-sweet version of Fahrenheit. Missoni Olympios and Zents Ore were recommended to me, but I haven't had a chance to try either yet.

    Yes, Missoni Olympios. Absolutely agree. I actually preferred Olympios.

    A bit literal (but surely better than current Fahrenheit).

    This is the closest you'll get. It's a knockoff made by Dorall (all they make are knockoffs).

    http://www.amazon.com/DORALL-COLLECT.../dp/B0014WONJM

    You can get it for as little as $7 a bottle and it smells very close to fahrenheit. I think Dorall steals the formulas and makes the fragrance exactly the way the original manufacturer makes them.

    Dorrall also makes a very good copy of 1 million, that they call 24 pure

    Le labos Santal 33 has some resemblance as well. When I.first heard this comparison I thought it was crazy. Then I compared notes and did a side by side...its not that far off. Plus after owning it and wearing it for a while now, I have come to get an interesting car exhaust odor after the first 15 min of application.

    Olympios for sure, unless you must have that "gasoline" note. I don't like Fahrenheit but I do like Olympios, which is why my early 2000 Fahrenheit bottle is up for swap !

    I went through many many botlles of the original. A true CLASSIC that I wish they would bring back.

    Got a chance to try Missoni Olympios and can confirm it's very similar to Fahrenheit, though a little toned-down. Also, it has a funky sweaty note in the heart and much less petroleum. I just sold my bottle as that sweaty thing wasn't for me. Olympios smells a bit cheaper and less grassy than Fahrenheit.

    I also got a great deal on a 50ml of Zents Ore EdT on eBay recently and can also confirm that it is quite close to Fahrenheit. However, I like it better. The violet leaf is turned up a bit to my nose, and the honeysuckle is replaced by a gorgeous jasmine sambac accord, which only makes it feel more natural but doesn't change the basic character. There is less petroleum (unfortunately) and the orris and sandalwood drydown is more refined and transparent though less ballsy. An excellent, classier, slightly more unisex alternative to Fahrenheit. (This is comparing with the new formulation, and not even side by side, by memory with a test strip.) I'd say it smells "better" (more natural, rounded, and elegant) but less manly.

    A slightly lighter more sweet version of Fahrenheit is Acca Kappa 1869.

    Not the same petrol smell, but to my nose it's pretty close to Fahrenheit.

    I own both and enjoy both and definitely find similarities between the two

    i think vintage jolie madame would make a nice alternative. it's actually even better than fahrenheit. it's by no means the same, but they do share a thing or two, and i think many people who like fahrenheit will like this as well. i've noticed in some vintages that the violet leaf is more prominent in relation to the violet flower (ionones) odor. in my experience this is especially occurring with the eau de toilette. personally, i much prefer the parfum edition, though.
