    Default Fahrenheit smells feminine

    I know I'm in the minority here, but to me Fahrenheit has this "watermelon" vibe to it. Had that vibe when i tested it, and weeks later my friend bought it and I smell the same thing. It's not super girly, but DEFINITELY not the manliest, gasoline scent. (I wish it smelled like gasoline). All I smell is this watermelon note with a dark twist to it. Am I missing something here? A girl could EASILY wear this IMO.

    WTF? Maybe you both tested Aqua Fahrenheit not original Fahrenheit. There is nothing slightly feminine in Fahrenheit.

    Fahrenheit is one of the great macho scents for men and it's light years away from the smell of watermelon imo.lol

    I can surely imagine ladies pulling off wearing some scents marketed for men. However, Fahrenheit? No way! It's just manliness in a bottle, wondefull stuff. I also do not get the gasoline / petroleum notes from this, more a spicy (almost like black pepper) opening after which the flowers kick in. When the spices fade away, it keeps its dark leather note which I cannot imagine any woman pulling off. Maybe you tried one of the other Fahrenheit alternatives like 32 or Aqua.
    My current top 3:
    1. Fahrenheit - Christian Dior
    2. ROMA Uomo - Laura Biagiotti
    3. Polo Blue - Ralph Lauren

    Dude no. Fahrenheit is not feminine. I realize we all have different taste and are entitled to our respective opinions here, but just no.

    Hmm I'm pretty sure it's the regular. But then again I don't find Brut all that Macho either. Just clean.

    Are you suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure you weren't smelling Fahrenheit 32? I like Fahrenheit 32, but it's too feminine for me. I'd love to see what it smells like on a woman though! ...but Fahrenheit? Definitely not feminine. Not unless you're smelling a fake.

    Wasn't a fake because I tested it at Macy's and my friend bought it from somewhere weeks later... No chance both happened to be fakes.

    Impossible. There's no watermelon note to it. Either that perfume is damaged or you're not expressing yourself clearly.

    The original Fahrenheit, nor any of its flankers, hints towards a feminine vibe. Could anyone be more incorrect about a fragrance?

    Fahrenheit is like dark, heavy, oily grass. its not feminine and I think you may have tried a flanker

    You sure it was Fahrenheit. I tried it on two nights ago, it just screams MASCULINE!
    I definitely don't get any fruity scents.

    ^^^This

    Are you sure we're talking about Fahrenheit by Christian Dior here? And if it was....are you sure you have the right juice, and that someone didn't play a goof on you by putting something else in a Fahrenheit bottle? Because there is absolutely NO watermelon in there!

    Feminine? Uhhh.....maybe....if you know many females that work in an auto shop changing transmissions out, rebuilding engines, doing basic oil changes, tune ups, brake repairs and tire rotations, etc. Don't let those violet flowers just outside the building fool ya.....

    I completely get what the OP is talking about -- especially if you only smell the top accord (first 10 minutes). What pops out for me in those first minutes are the "ozone" which definitely has a melony vibe, and the "hawthorn" which is quite sweet and floral. Until the rich dark base kicks in after a few minutes, I find Fahrenheit unisex for sure. In fact, I wrote it off at first because its opening was not bold and manly enough.

    A girl can wear almost any masculine fragrance and often smell amazing.

    It's the Lily of the Valley (and maybe chamomile (apple) and who knows what else) you're smelling in Fahrenheit. Some people are sensitive to it. The cucumber-metallic-oily effect of violet leaves could also be part of it. Almost any decent masculine fragrance has a good amount of florals in it. Note pyramids won't show you all of it. Not even close. The average fragrance contains over 200 ingredients. I know what you're talking about. Fahrenheit has plenty of florals but it doesn't necessarily smell feminine.

    I get neither a watermelon note nor a feminine vibe from Fahrenheit. For me, it is honeysuckle, gasoline, and violets.

    I work with a lady who wears Fahrenheit, or something that smells like it. And she isn't "butch" or even a lesbian, as if that makes any difference.

    Respectfully......I'm surprised at the comments. Not trying to fan the flames....so to speak.....: ) But if anyone suggests on this board that men can't wear women's scents because they smell too feminine, well, there is usually quite a vocal response to the contrary. We see that discussion over and over. I would think the flip-side is okay, too......why can't women wear whatever they want, regardless of what gender it was 'intended' for?

    *shrugs*

    Again, I'm not trying to stir up sh*t here, but I kind of felt like I stepped into the Twilight Zone.

    Oh and I don't smell watermelon in Fahrenheit, but I've been known to make some odd associations with fragrances, so I think it's totally possible that you're perception is telling you "watermelon!".

    Wear Fahrenheit at your own risk as it grows hair at the application site.
