    Default Dior Fahrenheit question regarding the original formulation

    I owned a small splash bottle of Fahrenheit in about 2004, I remember at the time it smelled absolutely amazing.

    I purchased a bottle of Fahrenheit a couple of months ago and although I love it, it feels like there is something missing from what I originally smelled, like a bit of the sweetness/floral was taken out of it.

    The cap was different to the one on the new bottle I bought, if you see the current Fahrenheit, the cap is completely parrallel apart from an engraved line halfway down it, the cap on my splash bottle was slightly different and had curves on it.

    So my question for people who have smelled both, did I smell the original Fahrenheit? It was when I was about 14-15 years old and I'm trying my best to remember the smell but the current one I have smells less sweet and I can definitely pick up the oil smell in it but from memory the old bottle I had smelled like it had something sweeter in, I'm guessing this could be the violet?

    And is it likely I'll ever be able to purchase a bottle of the old Fahrenheit, even just a small one?

    I know it has undergone a fundamental change, though cannot discern what it is. I have the one that first came out many years ago and that's what I compare it to when I smell later versions, but still find it hard to tell the difference.

    Thanks for the reply mate, this has been bugging me for a while.

    Would you say the one you own smells sweeter at all?

    The adjective I'd use would probably be that something is more "pronounced" but I'm just not sure what it is. As for being "sweeter" I personally don't perceive that.

    I have an older formulation and one of the newer formulations. Your nose isn't tricking you by any means. They are almost 2 completely different scents. The original is more heady and natural smelling. The new one is lighter, more chemical..

    According to member The_Cologneist, there were four formulations of Fahrenheit, with a fifth on the way apparently. Read more in this thread: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/279...ght=fahrenheit
