    I see I misread it. When I saw this "a concentration reserved in principle for feminine perfumes." I misunderstood and thought they were just saying that this fragrance was a feminine perfume.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

A couple of guys said no way, and the usual suspects called in the DOJ for discrimination. I said that I thought TdH would be sexy on a woman, like borrowing one's flannel lumberjack shirt and leaving all the buttons open, and nobody knew what to do with that bit of weirdness.

    I agree that the release of TdH parfum didn't seem to evoke a greater interest in TdH on the part of women - at least not that I noted. I think she's speculating that men's parfums might do that, but honestly, that does not seem to have been the case.

    I think that part of the reason that extrait and extreme releases don't seem to "call in the gals", is that more concentrated versions of men's scents tend to come later rather than earlier, and most of the potential cross-gender interest usually happens near the initial release of a scent, when unisex character is an open question. But in almost every case within memory, the release of an extreme or a parfum has been a scent with stronger "men's" notes (smoke, wood, etc.). So unless there starts to be some move to make these brofumes tend toward unisex as a rule, then I don't see why women would bother taking notice.
    I would disagree.

    Wagner seems to imply that women do like Terre d'Herms a lot (as mentioned in her other posts), and that she may be privy to some information (not just anecdotal) that we do not see. Moreover, perfume markets are quite segmented in terms of preferences. Just because the women around you do not seem to be crazy about TdH (or Fahrenheit) does not mean that women in other countries (say, France) are the same.

    Second, I am not sure that masculine extraits are always significantly stronger with masculine notes. TdH Parfum is to me (and many others) softer and rounder than the EdT. And what about Eau Sauvage Parfum?

    True. She may well have data - she has a heck of a lot closer and wider industry ties than anybody around here does - even people in the industry. Her attributions are often fairly impressive. She is very often able to get data in her posts that goes beyond the press release. But she typically identifies who she talked to, if it's a specific fact. Here, it's a bit of a generalization, so who knows?

    I did see data a while back on percentages of men's fragrances bought by different groups, and the numbers for men's fragrances bought by women for themselves blew me away. But I don't recall offhand what the number was, but it surprised me.

    Unless I see a lot of people commenting that a new concentration of a fragrance seems "more unisex", "more feminine", etc., I'd be hesitant to use my own senses definitively, but I do have to say that Eau Sauvage Parfum is - to MY nose - very unisex. But I've never really thought of Eau Sauvage as terribly masculine, either.

    I'd love to see her elaborate. I may try to drop a comment on there later, if I can. Gotta crash now. TTYL!

    I'm just amazed that the discussion went towards it being or not oriented to woman lol Well, i guess that i'm not the right person to judge since i love seing people wearing fragrances that they usually wouldn't wear, but really i don't think that Fahrenheit could be so hard for a woman to wear. Maybe judging from the current trends of fruity florals or clean florals or sugary scents, but i see that Fahrenheit could fit for a Lady that likes more vintage leathery scents and that also enjoy something more dry and also likes violets.

    I just hope it pops up soon everywhere, i want a bottle of it!

    This is quality right here guys.
    I can see a confident women pull this off but it's definitely more a masculine fragrance (to my nose)."

    This website announcing the advent of parfum version of Fahrenheit looks shady!!! I wish it was true that a men's version in parfum would exist but I'm more then satisfied with Edt version as it does all i wanted to...A classic so please don't mess with the formula!!!

    Kool, Thx....without that specific Petroleum/Gasoline note ..the violet leaf...etc will extinguish peculiarly of the Classic original.....not worth it IMO !

    This is my experience as well. I know that many here on basenotes prefer an EdP over an EdT because it'll be a stronger concentration, but when given an option of a perfume that comes in both concentrations, sometimes the EdT will project more and have a more airy feel, whereas the EdP may sit closer to the skin, which probably accounts for the "softer / rounder" feel you mentioned.

    Eau Sauvage Parfum is poorly named in my opinion. It isn't an EdP concentration of Eau Sauvage. It's a very different perfume entirely. I'm surprised Dior didn't give it more of a typical flanker type of name such as Eau Sauvage de Vet (for vetiver, obviously), or Eau Sauvage Noir.

    I have to guess that, like Eau Sauvage Parfum which is NOT just a parfum concentration of Eau Sauvage, a Fahrenheit Parfum would be a very different composition rather than just being an EdP concentration of Fahrenheit. Like I said, I'm really interested!

    So beyond finding one person who owns it in Europe, and having a single blog posting about it, has there been any word on this being available anywhere yet? I'm very keen to try this, and was wondering if word had leaked of where/when it will be available.

    Well it looks like this is officially confirmed as people in the U.K see it for sale in certain stores and have taken pictures as evidence.

    Still strange though that there has been nothing announced from Dior, at least, it doesn't seem like it.

    I'm really excited/eager to try this.

    Now Smell This posted about it today, with photos:

    http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/01/16...ew-fragrances/

    "Fahrenheit Parfum, the new intensity. A harmony of opposites to combine strength and elegance. The fragrance dons a vibrant and sensual accord, featuring violet and leather accents enhanced with Bourbon vanilla absolute. The irresistible appeal of a unique fragrance heightened by precious ingredients." In 75 ml.
    According to the article it is available for sale in the UK (Debenhams) now.

    Tested it. You guys will be really disappointed. It's not even recognizable as Fahrenheit. It's some of totally castrated ghost of the original - transparent citrus and not even a hint of petrol. Absolute rubbish!

    That's disappointing. Do you think if you smelled it blindly without knowing it was Fahrenheit PP that you'd find it to be equally as bad?

    I wouldn't have given it a moment's notice. It's anonymous. It's very, very bland and actually not that strong for a parfum - there's nothing that needs 'amplifying' in the composition as essentially it's just a bit of bergamot and vanilla. The main problem is it's virtually characterless - it has no heart and soul. It's closer to Fahrenheit absolute than anything else but FA has masses of character compared to this. Honestly I could list 200 perfumes better than this.

    Thanks for the feedback. Doesn't sound promising but I'll still try to sniff it if/when it makes it to the States.

    Have a hard time believing that, I think the rep was using a scare tactic to buy FA. It's a member of the mainstream lineup and is still fairly new (a little over 4 years I believe?)

    If it were in fact discontinued, well then I would be so mad at Dior as it's a great fragrance and I'd stock up, and if Fahrenheit parfum isn't as good, then, all hope is lost.
