    This is why gas price has increased. Dior has been stocking up on all the gas for their Fahrenheit line.

    There is no gasoline/petrol note in Fahrenheit.

    Evidence - hunt through the old threads, hundreds of accomplished noses here raved about Fahrenheit without any mention of a gasoline note - until a couple of years ago, and now everyone smells gasoline. Maybe they've added nice smelling additives to the gasoline/petrol where you live.

    I agree -- I've never gotten a gasoline accord from Fahrenheit, and I've smelled versions across the decades now. I will say that there's a sort of evocation of motor oil in its leather accord, which I find alluring and very masculine.

    I have the 2010 version and mini of the vintage. The vintage gets to the green and leather notes sooner but I like both quite a lot. Whether gasoline is a listed note or not, it's most definitely there in any version.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I love the gasoline note--not too strong, though! This is a very masculine frag IMO.

    I clicked mild, but really, it's subjective. Mild as compared to what? I'm sure many of us would disagree on whether the current formulation has a strong or mild gasoline note. That being said, Jack Hunter summed up my thoughts perfectly.
