    Default Which do I want?

    My 17th birthday is coming up in early march and I want a new fragrence. My current collection consists of bleu de chanel, la nuit de l'homme, 1 million, and Cuba gold. The two that I'm looking to ask for is either issey miyake (any of them, including flankers) or Dior Fahrenheit. I know that these are completely different but I need to know which is more complimented or which is your person favorite. Suggestions would be nice too. Thank you.

    Fahrenheit of the two but personally find both difficult to wear since the reformulation of Fahrenheit. I was your about your age when I first came to love it.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I would choose Fahrenheit Absolute. It is a little darker in accord and more intriguing than the regular Fahrenheit IMO.

    fahrenheit was a GREAT fragrance, but the current formulation of fahrenheit is terrible.

    i know people dramatize all the time about reformulations, but this reformulation is very apparent.

    fahrenheit no longer has that honey, violet grassy vibe. It's just leather and a punch of bergamot.

    It's not even gasoline anymore. It's bug repeller. I wouldn't give it to my worst enemy.

    go with issey miyake by default.

    I myself prefer Fahrenheit overall and own a 200ml and a 50ml bottle, but L'eau d'Issey gets more and more compliments especially from females. And it's more matched with your age.
    Also I think it's far better in terms of longevity and projection, since the new reformulation of Fahrenheit is only a shadow of the original one!

    Fahrenheit. Not a big fan of Issey.

    Fahrenheit is something of a classic and I just got myself another bottle recently. Even reformulated I'd say it's a good buy if you're familiar with it.

    Fahrenheit would add more individuality than L'Eau d'Issey, and, in spite not being a common scent, it seems quite liked, even with a fair share of compliments.

    I actually own both, and don't care for either very much (both fall into the "ok - not bad" category).

    It it were me, I would go with something different - AdG or something like that.
