    Default Flankers: Dior Farenheit 32 and Acqua Farenheit

    What do you guys think about these flankers? I was looking at the Dior website and noticed these were still around. I checked the notes breakdown on Fragrantica which seems quite interesting. I personally did not like Farenheit when I sampled it, but I might think differently about the flankers. I might try these out the next time I'm in the city.

    I own and love both as well as Absolute and 0 Degree but I prefer the original Fahrenheit and the new Parfum more.

    I love 32, but people here don't. Aqua is my least favorite Fahrenheit flanker.

    Do you both get a good amount of vanilla in Farenheit 32? Similar vanilla in Dior Homme Intense?

    Not so anymore. Just when I started wearing it. The vanilla makes it a bit powder. 32 is an uderrated fresh fragrance.

    For me, maybe even a little more especially in the dry down.

    I don't care for 32, but I find AF to be excellent. One of my favorites for summertime.

    I've discussed this before and I'm sure many disagree but I think Aqua F is closer to the original Fahrenheit than what they have out there today. Today there is too much gas. Aqua is definitely lighter but closer to why I loved in the vintage compared to today. I can see why it's great for Summer

    I love F 32. It has a guilty pleasure feel to it. I got it at Sephora and I saw it there recently.

    Aqua Fahrenheit is much closer to Fahrenheit than Fahrenheit 32.

    I like Aqua very much, probably Top 20 Summer for me. 32 is kind of meh for me, but not bad by any means.

    I haven't tried Aqua fahrenheit but I did have Fahrenheit 32 and did not like the smell.

    Aqua Fahrenheit is a very nice scent with excellent longevity and projection. Remember trying Fahrenheit 32 once and not being impressed by it but I have to refresh my memory.

    Aqua Fahrenheit is decent, but not something I would buy. It is a good summer fragrance, but a bit tame. I did like splash/spray concept. Very clever idea.

    Fahrenheit 32 is better imo, I like the vanilla... But if you want the best Fahrenheit flanker, then I think you should find a bottle of Fahrenheit Absolute. It's a darker Fahrenheit, and I really miss my bottle.

    Aqua fahrenheit is great, longevity and projection are top notch. Never tried 32, vanilla isn't my style so I'm not really interested in it...

    Both are great i.m.o. A.F. never got to top of my priority list unfortunately, but I still do plan to own it.

    I agree that Absolute is the best flanker.
    32 is also pretty good but is one you have to get used to (imo).

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo/7
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Dior: Eau Sauvage Parfum
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Van Cleef & Arpels: Pour Homme
    - Hermes: Terre d'Hermes
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    Love F32.
    Dry down was a bit synthetic though.

    Own and like F32, liked Aqua Fahrenheit without having the possibility to purchase it so far )but might get it once it becomes available again), both are good, yet highly different flankers in my opinion. Different both among each other, as well as in comparison to the initial, regular Farenheit.

    In highly different ways, just the right amount of lightness yet also distinctiveness, freshness, inoffensive versatility, appropriate for both casual and understated workplace/daytime wear in either of these two.

    I love 32 - very unique, striking, abstract, quite difficult to describe. It's one of the most underrated IMO

    Been wearing it regularly for the past few years.

    Acqua is a great summer alternative for lovers of the original & performs great in humidity. 32 is a vanilla bomb, which I loathe immensely.

    Agree.

    Fahrenheit 32 to me smells similiar to vanilla in Armani Code Woman.
    Acqua Fahrenheit is nice for first hour or so (because it has typical fahrenheit smell) but on drydown i feel like wearing Gucci PH II without everything that makes Gucci II good .
    Out of this 2 I would take Acqua (may buy 1 if I can find it for cheap) but can live without both.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Thierry Mugler Pure Energy
    3. Lalique Encre Noire


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Eau des Baux
    2. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    3. Dior Homme
