During the early 1990s, I bought my only bottle of Fahrenheit cologne by Christian Dior. fahrenheit cologne has been available since 1988 and became a runaway hit world wide; it obtained by far the most successful first three-month profits of any fragrance launch up to that period. (It overcome the previous champ: Poison.) Based on Dior, Fahrenheit sold 1.4 million bottles in Oct-12 of 1988 in The european union alone (Poison had sold 1.2 million bottles within the first 90 days of the 1985 European introduction.) (through Women's Wear Daily, 2/13/1989)
Fahrenheit’s listed compounds are hawthorn, bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, violet, nutmeg, cedar, honeysuckle and tonka bean. Florasynth perfumer Jean Louis Sieuzac made Fahrenheit, and at release, Maurice Roger, the president of Parfums Christian Dior, was quotes in Women's Wear Daily (9/9/1988): For a few years the men's parfum market is flooded with cypress or fern ingredients boosted by cocktails of aromatic notes - ingredients of lavender,sage, rosemary, etc. Roger said Fahrenheit was made on the rather floral thought, but not a regular women's floral like jasmine. Honeysuckle is actually a rather wild, pure floral. My observation from the industry was that there are a variety of much the same smells depending on Mediterranean cocktails. When you test all of the recent introductions, you will see the same propositions.
What a notion: a perfume house looking to produce a thing unique, different things from the thing that was readily available! Monsieur Roger - je t’aime.
Fahrenheit’s scintillating, but fleeting, floral opening contributes to a unique, longer-lasting nutmeg-violet accord. This peculiar accord is actually difficult to explain; for me it smells like a well used wood made telephone pole protected with dry tar! In Fahrenheit’s last stage of development, ‘dusty’ cedar and sandalwood and muted patchouli create dry and warm aromas that emphasize me of a place where soil, rocks and chapparal bake under a summer sun. Each one stage of fahrenheit cologne is really a pleasure to smell.
Even though Fahrenheit has been around for pretty much 30 years, it smells “fresher” (more modern) and better than many men’s fragrances being released these days…well known or niche.
I seriously really like Fahrenheit perfume 32. Just as before, it's like nothing else available on the market.
Just after my first date with a certain man, I had to get to the shopping mall the very next day to get my nose on this again. When the SA sprayed the card I just closed my nose and inhaled… it absolutely was the sexiest thing I had ever smelled. I think I smelled that card much more times that day, I looked to smell it on him once again. Happily in my situation I get to smell it every day of my life, on my husband, as he kisses me good-bye and goes off to work. 17+ years and I still get weak when I smell it. That's a great smell!
I adore fahrenheit mens cologne - once I smelled it I thought no other male’s scent got the charm or character that Fahrenheit has.
Seeing all of the raves of Fahrenheit, I tried a whiff in a shop a few months back.
