    Default Dior Homme, Boss Night, and Fahrenheit

    Dior Homme: This is with the black column. The cocoa and iris and perhaps a little less pronounced than the vintage but I can't really tell a major difference. It is as smooth and good as ever! Love it and bought it!

    Fahrenheit: The gasoline wasn't as strong as I remembered. The Acqua version smells closest to the vintage but when I buy this, I will get the original, not the flanker. It smelled wonderful. My only complaint is that I don't get as much of the honeysuckle as I remember, but overall its still a great fragrance. Its in my future!

    Boss Night: Starts out so smooth and bright like Cool Water vintage. If it retained this level of aliveness, I would get it but I quickly melds down into a stringent, synthetic vibe. I own GIT so, there probably isn't a point anyways. Do you agree?

    I briefly smelled Le Male Terrible and from what I could tell, it was quite nice. Am I wrong? Any opinions on this one?

    Three nice ones. Just got a bottle of Fahrenheit Aqua. Like this one cause it's good for the winter and safe for the summer.

    I keep waffling on getting Fahrenheit. My wife hates it, so....

    I can see where she might not like Fahrenheit, with its oil tinge. However, F-aqua is absent of the oil tinge and is very smooth. The only thing that stops me from making a purchase is deciding which formulation I would like to get.

    Also, they had several bottles of GPH II which smells good. I almost snagged one as I'm sure once that is gone, its gone.

    That's a tough one. If I were dating someone who didn't like it, I wouldn't even try wearing it around her. There's nothing middle of the road about Fahrenheit.

    Have you gotten her opinion on Aqua Fahrenheit? I just picked that one up and am looking forward to wearing it later this spring and summer.

    I also have Aqua Fahrenheit on the way. Tried it in Atlanta months ago and loved it, had to finally order it since fragrancenet was running 21% coupon. I dont know why the Aqua version isn't getting much attention here on BN. I have regular Fahrenheit so I'm excited to do a side by side. Dior Homme, in a word is awesome.

    Remembering how a scent as bold as Fahrenheit used to smell doesn't work, in my opinion, even if the formula hasn't changed. It's like remembering the taste of your first beer. I hated my first beer. I thought it was foul! And I hated my first Guinness even more. Now, I enjoy beer that's much darker than Guinness. I remember Guinness being so dark, but whenever I order it, which is only once every few years, I'm always surprised that it isn't as dark as I remember. Guinness hasn't changed. My palate has.

    When I first smelled Fahrenheit, I was blown away by how strong the gasoline note was. I'd say the same of the rubber note in Bvlgari Black. Now, neither of those notes even surprises me. I enjoy them, and I'm used to them.

    I think it's interesting how scents seem to change over time, even when they don't. I've only been wearing Fahrenheit for about 6 months, but my bottle seems so much more tame today than when I bought it. It isn't more tame though. I'm just used to it. Interestingly, L'Air du Desert Marocain has had the opposite effect for me. When I first bought it, I loved it but I thought it might be just a bit too feminine for me, but the longer I own it, the more masculine it smells. The smell hasn't changed, of course. I'm just getting used to it and noticing more and more of the complexities in it.

    Yup. Me too. And if you went through ebates, you actually ended up getting another 12% back on top of that. Man, I love a good sale!

    Totally agree. 100%. I suppose the word Aqua is a turn off here, but Aqua Fahrenheit doesn't smell Aqua at all. I haven't worn it enough to have a good feel for the drydown, but the silage seems excellent.

    Wait until the weather warms up, and then start a thread for that! I'll join in with a side by side comparison too.

    I think Aqua Fahrenheit doesn't smell like (vintage) Fahrenheit at all, not even close!

    Dior Homme is magnificent. One of my favorites ever.

    Agreed. Aqua Fahrenheit is light and refreshing at first, moving into a rubbery vetiver, and then wimps out into a banal calone/aquatic note. Nothing to do with the complex, rich, and radiant sweetness of the vintage original.

    Compared to the current Fahrenheit formulation, I still feel that Acqua is closer to the vintage, which I happen to have a bottle of from 1990. Agreed that it isn't identical, but of the two, it is closer in several aspects. So, which of the two Fahrenheit offerings do you all prefer; current formulation or Acqua?

    Of these three, Dior Homme is the only one leaving me less impressed (preferring far more the Intense and Sport flankers), but for the other two I can only agree.

    I agree that the current formulation of Fahrenheit (2012 onward) is a bit "watered down," not as rich and radiant, but it's still awfully good, and I certainly prefer it to Aqua Fahrenheit. I wish the latter had a bit more strength and didn't develop into a rather hackneyed aquatic aromachemical (same one used in overdose in Bond No. 9 Wall Street. I assume that's calone?).

    Think I'm preferring the precursor to Acqua even though the oily resin is a bit more than I'd like. I also don't get the honeysuckle as much which made it radiant.

    I actually really liked this one too. It does smell good, I actually like it much better than the original. It almost smelled to me like more lavender and less vanilla, not sure...going to have to sniff again.
