Reviews of Fahrenheit Parfum

Took a few wears for me to come around on this one. Initially the lavender came off really harshly with spice and booze... granted, this was also at the tail end of summer. Cold weather is transformative... it really elevates this to another level. Also, Clockwork Alice’s observation that this leans unisex, if not slightly femme, makes perfect sense. Doesn’t put me off wearing it, I just see this as Fahrenheit that can be shared with greater ease.

The first ten minutes of application are still my least favourite, but as this develops on skin in colder weather some magic happens. As the screeching lavender and pepper get kicked off stage, this goes a little umami on my skin, almost vaguely reminiscent of boozy, violet leaf soy sauce, which then falls into the leather jacket accord from the EDT.

The vanilla and benzoins in the base form a lovely anchor with the patchouli and woods, and the dry down becomes what I’d probably best call a ruggedly smooth experience. It’s good, leans gourmand without going gooey and never quite gives up its bite.

This goes in a couple of different directions before finally settling into a solid accord, but when it does it’s stunning.

Not a favourite for me, because it falls short of the mark left by the EDT. It does fill a cold weather gap for lovers of the DNA, but still leaves me feeling a little unfulfilled. Still a solid thumbs up.

A Fahrenheit that is sweet! I was shocked at first how sweet and feminine it is – at least for Fahrenheit. But it is beautiful. Gasoline with vanilla and leather and some booze. And patchouli!
I would wear this gourmand Fahrenheit with ease and joy, especially in autumn. Seems very unisex to me - maybe even leaning slightly feminine. It also reminds me of something I have tried and liked before, but I don't remember what it is, maybe something from A*Men range (they also felt quite feminine/unisex to me), maybe something from Les Senteurs Gourmands fragrances or even Burberry London for men? Or maybe I'm feeling this because of this unexpected combination of Fahrenheit and warm boozy and slightly spicy patchouli sweetened with vanilla. It's like Fahrenheit meeting Black Opium in a way – I am sorry for this comparison, but I do like both, and with this scent I can actually wear both at once.
I could see myself with a bottle of this warm and sensual Fahrenheit in the future.

This is a special one. How do you take something lavender fronted and make it mature and masculine? By loading it up with warmth, booze, and vanilla, that's how! The rum note is great in this.

And speaking of warmth, it's impressive how this can be a wholly distinct scent from the EDT while still connecting in your mind through that heat. There's something a little smokey or metallic (I think it's from the violet leaves) that is ever so slightly evocative of the original, while still being sophisticated and not smelling like you just got off work at the auto shop. I do love the original in it's own right though.

As some other Fahrenheit flankers have gotten discontinued over the years, I made sure to grab a 75ml, which I'll cherish as long as I can.

Dior, for once, has released a nice perfume. This is an excellent scent with smoky woods, leather, hints of petrol (initially) on a base of dry, bitter vanilla. The violet leaf is very prominent; the Fahrenheit DNA is clearly there, and it also reminds me a bit of Fahrenheit Absolute. No harshness, very smooth, and the execution from start to finish is very good. I find both sillage and longevity to be good.

This will probably be loved by people who love Fahrenheit (I do). I often wear Fahrenheit in spring and summers; by contrast, I prefer the Parfum in cooler weather. It's also quite versatile, and can be dressed up or down.

All in all a welcome twist on Fahrenheit that is neither trivial nor insubstantial.

3.5/5

Full disclosure, the EDT is one of my favorites. I read this as leather and booze. Not sickly sweet, but the vanilla gives it a bit of fullness, maybe makes this scent less sharp somehow that the original. The original is fresher. I feel like I get some spices, almost incensy, but just not quite. I assume this is the coriander and cumin. I like it. I like the balance in this fragrance. It adds some sweet, but a little spice as well. Feels contemporary. Feels a bit darker in color than the original. Fallish fragrance. Has the original DNA in there somewhere. You can definitely tell they are related. I do not think this underperforms. Solid to heavy I'd say on silage and longevity. Definitely last longer than the original (new reform) by far. The longer I wear this the boozier and sweeter it seems.

Fahrenheit Parfum is a fragrance that just suits me. It smells good on me. It kind of matches my personality. From that point of view it would be fair to say I love the stuff!!

This is the best Fahrenheit fragrance since the original.

There is a slight reminder of the original. The dna is still there but make no mistake, this is a new fragrance in its own right. This is very seductive. Think of the vintage Fahrenheit with vanilla bourbon and rum. Very sweet and vanilla-tastic. Yum yum!!!
