    Bois du Portugal

    Blind bought Fahrenheit about 2 years ago - I keep going back to it to see what I am missing. Still scratching my head. Maybe everyone who loves it is basing that opinion it off the "original"? Because I have the newer one, and just haven't found the love yet.

    Fahrenheit...Game changer.

    BdP is nice though if you like the 80's vibe.

    Wow, so tough, two of my very faves. Love both of these, but I'd have to choose Fahrenheit by a whisker because of wearability in more scenarios.

    BDP for me as well. Even tho Fahrenheit is great and you can basically wear it all year round, somehow this always ends up smelling better on others rather than myself

    I'm 19 and would love to wear BdP. Our noses must differ, because although I get the "classic" vibe I don't get the "grandpa" vibe at all.

    Fahrenheit (pre-reformulation) > Bois Du Portugal > Fahrenheit (post-reformulation)

    So, in short BdP wins.

    my grandpa smelled like old spice, Schlitz tall boys, and jalapeno peppers

    My choice is BdP - easily. I didn't even like Farenheit when it came out, as I remember the release and testing it at stores. But back in those days, I was sticking with my Chanel stuff.
