In the early 90's, I bought my single bottle of Visit Website by Christian Dior. has been around since 1988 and became a runaway hit world wide; it had one of the most successful first several-month sales of any fragrance release around that period. (It defeat the earlier winner: Poison.) As outlined by Dior, Fahrenheit sold 1.4 million bottles in October-December of 1988 in European countries alone (Poison had sold 1.2 million bottles in the first 90 days of its 1985 European release.) (via Women's Wear Daily, 2/13/1989)
’s listed materials are hawthorn, bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, violet, nutmeg, cedar, honeysuckle and tonka bean. Florasynth perfumer Jean Louis Sieuzac developed Fahrenheit, at introduction, Maurice Roger, the president of Parfums Christian Dior, was cited in Women's Wear Daily (9/9/1988): For several years the males's scent market has become inundated with cypress or fern extracts enhanced by cocktails of aromatic notes - compounds of lavender,sage, rosemary, etc. Roger said Fahrenheit was developed with a alternatively floral idea, but is not a normal girls's floral like jasmine. Honeysuckle is usually a rather wild, organic floral. My observation from the market was that there are many of virtually identical perfumes determined by Mediterranean cocktails. If you ever examine many of the recent introductions, you'll find virtually identical propositions.
What a idea: a parfum house wanting to generate something unique, different things from that which was readily available! Monsieur Roger - je t’aime.
Fahrenheit’s scintillating, but fleeting, flower opening results in an unusual, longer-lasting nutmeg-violet accord. This unusual agreement is difficult to explain; in my opinion it has the aroma of a classic wood telephone pole protected with dried tar! In Fahrenheit’s final stage of progress, ‘dusty’ cedar and sandalwood and muted patchouli develop dry and warm nose that point out to me of a place where soil, gravel and chapparal bake under a summer sun. Every step of Fahrenheit can be a joy to smell.
While Fahrenheit has been in existence for nearly 30 years, it smells “fresher” (more modern) and a lot better than the majority of men’s scents released today…well known or niche.
I truly really like Fahrenheit 32. Again, it's like nothing else in the marketplace.
Right after my first date with a certain person, I had to get to the shopping center the very next day simply to get my nose with this again. When the SA sprayed the card I just closed my nose and inhaled… it was the sexiest thing I had ever smelled. I do believe I smelled that card more times that day, I longed to scent it on him again. Happily for me personally I be able to smell it every day of my life, on my husband, when he kisses me goodbye and goes off to work. 17+ years and I still get weak whenever i scent it. That's an awesome parfum!
I really like Fahrenheit - the 1st time I smelled it I believed not one other man’s scent obtained the attraction or style that Fahrenheit has.
