    Default How much "gasoline" do you want in your Fahrenheit ? POLL.

    I'm wondering what those who wear this scent (at least once in a while) prefer in terms of the gasoline/petrol type note. Let us assume that everything else is equal.

    I think it's just right in the current formulation as the strong floral notes soon tame and overwhelm the note quite early on. The gasoline note in Knize Ten hangs around for up to two hours in comparison and is quite unpleasant.

    I like the mild gasoline vibe. That's why I purchased Fahrenheit Aqua. It's more versatile IMO.

    "gasoline overload" is how I'd like it

    If we're going to dissect this then IMO it's always been more about a motor oil smell than gasoline (there's quite a difference) in Fahrenheit. A few times I've actually thought about this when I got a little gas on my hand at the gas station, thinking, "this really doesn't remind me much of Fahrenheit."

    That being said it's mostly present in the original formulation(s). The current formulation has lost much of that oil/greesiness to me and it's more about the violet leaf.

    I enjoy the fragrance in all its forms.

    Not much gasoline for me. Smells like you were a clumsy person at the gas station.

    None at all. I don't remember a gasoline note in the original formulation so its not what I want and ruins the current one for me.

    A tanker truck full! I love that note in Fahrenheit, can't get enough of it. There's just something about that mixed with the berries that is intoxicating to me, and thankfully my wife likes it too. It's my Valentines Day scent today as well.

    Only in the opening. Don't expect it to last till drydown. If I do I might as well wear motor oil.

    I have a vintage mini, a formulation from 1999, and a current formulation.

    In an ideal world I would have the top notes of the current formulation paired with the dry down of the vintage. Now THAT would be a badass Fahrenheit.

    Default Re: How much "gasoline" do you want in your Fahrenheit ? POLL.

    None to mild at most. I do feel a certain boozy-leathery powerhouse vibe, admittedly with a few gasoline like undertones, but then again, the drydown mellows after a while into one of the most persistent yet also subtle, smooth woody and incense-like final impression.

    To me it's more of a machine oil smell than gasoline.

    When I had a sample of this, that "petrol" note came across to me much more as a sort of motor oil and grease combination, and those are smells I am well familiar with.
    I gave the Fahrenheit sample a few tries, and gave up. Couldn't deal with that oil/grease thing.

    Reading this thread, I keep wondering if there is some kind of world wild olfactory nasal mass delusion at work, which is in need of serious study.

    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.

    A note is an impression, Renato, and there is no right or wrong about it. Perhaps you mean a note intended by the perfumer?

    ...maybe layer it with some other fuels like 'Kerosine' or 'Diesel'...?

    5 litres, but it has to be stored with leather pieces in metal caskets for a period of several weeks first.

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

    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 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.

    +1.

    I also love the rubber note in Bvlgari Black.
