    Default Fahrenheit by Dior

    Certainly much different than other colognes around, likely because of the honeysuckle being one of the main ingredients?

    How would you rate this cologne, personally, and based on the feedback from other people?

    1-5

    yeah, i'm inclined to agree. of course it varies on the day and the occasion.

    definitely not my signature, as there are people who are not pleased with it.

    but at other days i would keep the bottle by my side to smell it every 10 minutes.

    It should be in every woman's collection right along with Dior Homme, Eau Sauvage & Guerlain Vetiver.

    I have yet to smell it, but I am interested since I have only heard good things about it before now.

    vintage 10/10
    reformulated version 7/10

    best comparison i can make is
    original = real leather
    reformulated version = vinyl

    i have the vintage fahrenheit. 9 out of 10. great cologne.
    now its half empty. because of the reformulation issue , i rarely use it i dont want out of the vintage one.
    is the reformulation really downgrade from the vintage? i only can say the new fahrenheit has more puffy bottle than the old fahrenheit.

    I never smelled the original but the currently available scent is so-so. Very well liked by many, "a classic", etc.. Does not work for me at all and I have given this several full wearings. I get only a couple of hours from it and, as I read somewhere, there is a hint of gasoline for me. Not that I dislike gasoline! LOL. I am neither put off by this nor am I excited by this even though the scent is unique. Just...meh. New Fahrenheit 32 is another story. That one is a favorite and will be a full bottle purchase at some point.
    My Favorites

    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Norma Kamali Incense

    I own a vintage bottle and was around when it was launched so I'm a bit biased, but I will say that JMHO its a masterpiece.

    Very original indeed! I used to wear this in 90´s and recently sniffed it again - I couldn´t understand it anymore! Sniffed it again and again, day after day in the department store. It grew on me and it´s now on it´s way from Cheapsmells.

    They keep reformulating this, I have a 2006 bottle,the gasoline note is still present and lasts a good 9-10 hours on my skin.
    Current formulation, does not have that gasoline note , and is not as long lasting I find.

    4, good

    Did not like it at first but it grew on me and it's much more versatile than I originally gave it credit for.
