It's a classic for sure.
- Truly unique
- Hardly anyone wears it in my age group (22)
- 10/10 projection
- 10/10 longevity
- Addictive smell
- Nostalgic scent because it's so unique
- Made in the 80s but still amazing today
- Bottle and sprayer are perfect (these aren't that important but this is perfection)
Seriously is there anything wrong with Fahrenheit? The only thing I can think of is some people might not like how dark it is or the oil smell but if you're brave enough to wear it you won't even care.
Fahrenheit is the daddy.
It's a classic for sure.
It really is. It doesn't smell dirty either even though it has the oil smell. It's clean. 10/10.
Probably my personal favorite fragrance.
This was my signature scent late in high school and into college. It worked really well on me. I put my (now vintage!) bottle aside for years, figuring I was no longer interested in perfume. Then I got into niche stuff like the Comme des GarÁons Incense series, and I still didn't think much about Fahrenheit (or EgoÔste, the other one I used to wear and still have a vintage bottle of). Now I'm coming back to them and realizing I'd had classics all along. Glad I never threw out those bottles!
I love Fahrenheit . So addictive , with a heavenly drydown ....
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
A great scent that I don't know why I don't own. I was immediately taken with it when I first smelled it.

Only thing wrong with Fahrenheit is its popularity. Here I smelled it on more men than Acqua Di Gio (which is not that popular here). Almost as much as Le Male.
Current TOP 5:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
3. Dior Homme Intense
4. Encre Noire
Indeed, in my country, it's outrageously popular too
Fahrenheit is absolutely amazing!
I freaking love Fahrenheit. Really glad I recently scored a vintage bottle on eBay for well under retail. And thanks for the tips, guys. Note to self: don't bother packing Fahrenheit for my next trip to Eastern Europe. Weird, 'cause I don't recall ever smelling in on anyone, ever, here in the States.
This may sound very weird, but I really like this fragrance and feel like it has a lot of potential; I've only given it a few wearings, but I'm afraid this may become my signature scent.... something that I dread. I appreciate multiple scents, and being limited to one (even one that I love) frightens me

a great fragrance and, although the current formulation is nowhere close to the vintage, it's still head and shoulders above the average quality of todays designer's masculines...

Cannot fault the OP's assessment of Fahrenheit. If there was ever a fragrance that was close to perfection it would be Fahrenheit!
Think I'll make this my SOTD today.
The only thing wrong with it is the reformulation - and that's a big wrong.
Never really did anything for me. Don't dislike it, more ambivalent
"OOOOOOH WHAT A GOAL! IT'S DANNY ROSE, ON HIS PREMIER LEAGUE DEBUT, WITH A MEMORABLE STRIKE!"
It is Practically Perfect in nearly every way. And very addictive in a way other fragrances are not...
The only flanker I have tried is Absolute. It's alright, but I am not a huge fan of it. I don't go out of my way to try flankers unless I hear great things about it.
I enjoy the original Farenheit but I love Farenheit Absolute. I guess this is one of those rare cases where I like the flanker more.
The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?
How many sprays and where with this one? Also cool spring days are OK for Fahrenheit?
I have been wearing the 2nd formulation, but also have the most recent (5th) formulation. The 2nd is so natural smelling and open: an absolutely fabulous fragrance. The most recent is also very good, but lacks both the naturalness and openness. That important point notwithstanding, I'd happily wear either - even in the summer evenings.
Long ago(1988) the original Fahrenheit was really nice, although I considered it a Grey Flannel rip off. It had nothing to do with nowadays Fahrenheit. As far as I am concerned the only nice Fahrenheit at this moment is Fahrenheit 32; though totally different it has some of the class of the original.
I was in the U.S yesterday and wal-mart had a 50 ml bottle for $43, its $66 here in Canada, kicking myself for not getting it.....
Re-formulation owner and completely satisfied with it. Of course, wouldn't mind finding a nice deal on one of the pre-reform bottles, but if anyone reading this that hasn't sampled Fahrenheit yet, don't let the reformulation thing deter you from trying it. It is still amazing juice.
I love Fahrenheit!!! It has been my signature scent for years. I am lucky I rarely come across another person that wears it where I live. I hope I never run out of this amazing fragrance! Especially the vintage pre-formulated version!

If you like Fahrenheit, Quimbaya by Jean Pascal has a lot of similarities.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

I tried it today at counter. Smells good but....errr, is it similar to boss bottle?
Very unique, smells great, lasts and projects, and surprisingly liked fragrance even though it's quite old (thanks new reformulations I guess).
I have the reformulated version and quite like it. When this originally came out it never really sat well with me but I'd really like to score some vintage juice to refresh my memory. I always plan ahead when I want to wear this because I get, to my nose, a lot of the famous oil note for about the first two hours, then it gets really good.

I don't wear it a lot but it's excellent. The name is appropriate because the fragrance is better in the heat.
Jean-Paul Guerlain would agree with you as well. He told an interviewer that it was one of the few masculine fragrances worthy of being called a masterpiece.
Great scent. I even like the current formulation.
I'm wearing the vintage stuff today, and it's quite different. But I like the current formulation too, it's still the one and only perfume I feel comfortable with!
Haven't worn it for ages. This stimulates me to wear it again soon. I've saved the old formulation...about 5 ml left.

This is classic that I love. The bottle and the name are appropriate with its progression.
Fahrenheit is as relevant today as it was yesterday. It never goes out of fashion.
A timeless classic that has stood the test of time.
I wish I could wear this People talk about the oil note in the opening but on my skin it barges in during the drydown.
The longer this is on my skin for the more pronounced the oil note.
Eventually I feel really dirty with this on and need to get it off. Like I've been in an auto shop all day.
After seeing all the love for Fahrenheit here I ordered a sample. I did not like it, the opening note was a rubber smell that slowly died down to something that was ok. About three hours in I caught a couple of whiffs of something that was really good but in the end 90% of it was average to nasty.
I LOVE FAHRENHEIT. I ran out a while ago, will get a nice big bottle in the fall.
That said, I've been loving Aqua Fahrenheit all summer. Probably my most worn fragrance this summer so far. When I first wore it, I thought it was just okay - but the more I wore it, the more I understood that it was more complex than I had thought. Definitely has the DNA of the original.
It wasn't until I tried vintage 2nd formulation that I wanted to wear Fahrenheit. Lately, I've been finding myself craving it. I got over the ozone in the opening and now I'm digging it more. Certainly unique, a real outlier in the fragrance world (despite a few ripoffs). I consider it like Heinz Ketchup -- any variations on the formula tend to worsen the result, unlike some other trailblazer frags which launched whole genres.
I find Fahrenheit too common, too recognizable. Its the modern day Faberge Brut aftershave.
Ughh... You guys are making me want to buy another bottle of this since it has run out some time ago.
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. 34 Boulevard Saint Germain

The more I use it /smell it, the more I`m convinced that Fahrenheit is my "holy grail" signatur scent. It`s just perfect!
