During the early 90's, I purchased my only bottle of Discover More by Christian Dior. ’s stated ingredients are hawthorn, bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, violet, nutmeg, cedar, honeysuckle and tonka bean. Florasynth perfumer Jean Louis Sieuzac produced Fahrenheit, 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 males's parfum market place have been filled with cypress or fern ingredients enhanced by cocktails of aromatic notes - materials of lavender,sage, rosemary, etc. Roger explained Fahrenheit was built using a alternatively floral thought, but not an old-fashioned females's floral like jasmine. Honeysuckle is actually a rather wild, pure floral. My observation of the current market was that there are a variety of very similar fragrances based upon Mediterranean cocktails. If you ever test out each of the recent introductions, you'll find similar propositions.
What a notion: a fragrance house wanting to develop a little something original, different things from the thing that was readily available! Monsieur Roger - je t’aime.
Fahrenheit’s scintillating, but fleeting, flower opening leads to a unique, longer-lasting nutmeg-violet accord. This strange accord is difficult to explain; for me it smells like an old wood telephone pole sprayed with dry tar! In Fahrenheit’s final phase of development, ‘dusty’ cedar and sandalwood and muted patchouli develop dry and warm fragrances that tell me of the place where soil, rocks and chapparal bake under a summer sun. Each stage of is really a happiness to smell.
While Fahrenheit 's been around for nearly 30 years, it smells “fresher” (more sophisticated) and better than the majority of men’s scents being released nowadays…mainstream or niche.
I actually really like 32. Once again, it's like nothing else available on the market.
Right after my first date with a certain man, I had to get to the local mall the very next day in order 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 actually smelled. I do believe I smelled that card more times on that day, I longed to scent it on him again. The good news is for me personally I get to smell it every day of my life, on my husband, when he kisses me good-bye and goes off to work. 17+ years and I still get weak when I scent it. That's an awesome smell!
I really like - the very first time I smelled it I think hardly any other male’s perfume had the charm or style that Fahrenheit has.
Reading the many raves of Fahrenheit, I tried a whiff in the shopping area a couple of months back. Initially my response was…”oh my God, it’s old man stink.” I couldn’t think how peppery, smoky, and…well, STANKY it hit me. I kept sniffing my wrist as I walked in the mall and each time was freshly amazed that was such a huge seller. Yet…like a lot of women who smell Angel initially, are turned off, but oddly motivated to go back and try it again, I would like to give Fahrenheit one more go.
