Fire and flame...
...I am for this fragrance!
One thing I have to let Dior yes: Among countless fragrances for me to test, it just had to be Fahrenheit, which landed very high on my list. The name, the reputation to be a "Hate or Love" fragrance, the uniqueness and ultimately the entire presentation have done it to me. At the same time, it is then still said that the fragrance would simply smell like gasoline, which made it not very interesting for me. But wrong thought:
When I sprayed the fragrance on the test strip and smelled it for the first time, I tore open my eyes and looked for a brief moment dumbfounded to the test strip, because this fragrance is really unique and as that is so with unique fragrances, they like to polarize.
I've never smelled anything like Fahrenheit before, but I liked it immediately. I understand the gasoline/engine oil association, but don't think it does the scent justice. Fahrenheit is just so much more!
Incidentally, I expected something sharp, downright smelling of spirit, which makes the fragrance for so many as a gasoline scent. But wrongly thought, Fahrenheit has no sharp after nail polish remover, turpentine or even just to be declared as spicy accord. Fahrenheit picks up somewhat, by that I mean only somewhat, the inherent smell of gasoline and that only mainly in the opening. Since this is supposed to be much more pronounced according to some statements and reviews in the vintage version (My goodness, I must definitely test!), I can well imagine that some rated here from memory.
Otherwise, I can not explain "This smells only of gasoline", because even my untrained nose gets from beginning to end tangerine violet leaf leather in combination with a pinch of chamomile.
All in all, the fragrance strikes me as slightly fruity-green with a distinct leather note.
The durability varies, is with me but mostly at 10-11 hours. Complain can not be there. With the Silllage I had the biggest problems, because I perceive the fragrance itself times, then also a time no longer. I experimented a bit with the number of sprays and even with 15+ sprays, I didn't find myself swooning into unconsciousness once, which I think would have been the case with most fragrances that are a bit more intrusive. So there is something about Fahrenheit that I sometimes notice and sometimes don't. I know the nose gets used to scents, but I haven't wandered that much in between "Is it gone now?" and "No, it's still there!" yet. Certainty there was every time at the latest when the nose wandered to the sprayed wrist, because with the nose on the skin, the scent is, as already noted, very long perceptible.
But I also involved other people who could perceive me a few hours after spraying still clearly, albeit pleasantly. All in all, therefore, not a fragrance that beats up your counterpart still after hours the nose, but definitely more than skin close and thus also above average will make itself felt.
The Falkon, the name, the class sprayer: here really fits everything together.
Exactly the name and the bottle looking like a flame have attracted my attention and enticed me, among other things, to test the fragrance. Nevertheless, there are also here even more beautiful works of art, the cap could also be better.
The bottom line is that Fahrenheit is exactly what I was looking for. He is unique, he is uncompromising, he polarizes. It combines many aspects that I miss in today's selection of fragrances. Certainly a fragrance that will stay with me for a long time and will fill the shopping list in 200ml. I'll also give the Flanker another try, though it'll be hard to top this one. This scent has absolute potential to be a signature scent for small manageable collections, is wearable for young to old and all but the height of summer.
Do not be deterred by the others, test it and form your own opinion.
Thanks for reading!
