I got a bee in my bonnet and sought out the vintage version, pre-reformulation. Taking off my tie and unbuttoning the top two on my pink shirt and getting wafts of this strange scent from my chest as I walk into the sun after work is a totally surreal experience that I can now experience over and over again. I imagine a biker lumberjack who eats nails for breakfast would wear this. Could be mistaken for a petroleum smell, but even if it is that still smells great to my nose.Yes, it made a difference -- the original was more intense and had a more layered progression -- but it also left a huge rash on my neck, so I guess, in this case, reformulation was a good thing. Not dainty or subtle in any way, but for those who were alive in the late 1980s/early 1990s, this smell will take you back... Most other men are subconsciously offended when I wear this scent. It's a ghost of the late 80s and the 90s, when social media and screens didn't dominate our lives. This is a special frag to me because it gives me memories of visiting the farm as a kid and riding the tractor through the fields.The bergamot occasionally peeks through to provide a slight freshness now and then. I bought this one blind for this winter but I don't find myself coming back to it much. It's sophisticated enough for a more formal gathering but then the sensuality gets in the way there too. When i wear it I feel like I can take on giants and drive little fairies crazy.
The smell is simply unique; it cannot be mistaken for anything else. EDIT: 2 Compliments received in a restaurant (1 male 1 female) on 29/04/18 !! The leather and cedar both start off fairly strong, but both quickly subside after that first 10 minutes. ), the orange, a slight hint of sandalwood, and though I can't detect the amber itself, I know it is there, as there is a slight warmth to this. It's pulsating and hot and while this lacks the sweaty component of some fragrances, it does evoke it. It's too overly sexual for a gym bag or casual friend get-together.There is the funky petrol vibe, some airy flowery notes, and leather. Alas, on my skin, it quickly loses the freshness and becomes a generic sweet leather scent. Anyway, this sweetness isn't powdery, dry or clean, but more like syrupy and a bit cloying, especially in summer. Recently, I've bought one in Sephora in Paris and must say that malheureusement it is just more synthetic and watered down (((( This was one of my fav juice, now the reform ugggh why do they keep doing this? Last December I bought a bottle of recent formulation with new changed box which is of 2016 batch.Longevity is very good as well as sillage, but I sold my bottle, since I didn't have any practical use for it. I smell this and I smile, can't explain why (probably some hidden memories). The violet is amazing and something in this makes my nose itch (a good itch). performance sucks on me so does the projection got new bottle 2017 got to overspray, 8sprays to try to make it last longer its not the beast it used to be it is way softer dont get the gas smell anymore and on me the dry down smells just like grey flannel, does anyone else get that on the dry down? Comparing to 20 batches it is true, there is a change in performance and a slight change in scent.It demands a unique taste and a practiced nose, its hard to fall in love with it, but if you do, you're lost for life : D Absolute manliness in a bottle, gives a boost of your confidence as you smell it on yourself. 40 yrs), cool WOMEN compliment on this....are like: hmmmmmm....who's wearing Fahrenheit?! and that hmmmmmm...is why this gem will allways be in my collection ;) I love reviewing old fragrances that stood the test of time. One of the few 80ies scents that is still relevant today. The current version has good longevity and perfect projection. no cheap tricks) They replied the email has been forwarded to their research division. I was very young when it came out and by the time I was choosing my own smell and not trying to smell like dad, this one had already been around for a bit and I was looking for the latest great. Perry Ellis and the fraud masquerading as the former masterpiece these days.This one was on my purchase list a long time, as i felt intimidated. The showergel, deo stick, and after shave balm has very good quality too. This is one of those 'cult classics' I can't get behind (like Acqua di Gio). Obsession, Eternity, Cool Water, have all withstood mergers and acquisitions pretty well, and side by side comparisons of vintage and modern reveal only slight differences which may have as much to do with the juice aging as reformulation. The only major difference is today’s version lasts longer than both earlier versions.
Anyways, two sprays is all you need with the most recent formulation. Speaking of fields, this fragrance also holds a grassy, earthy note, making it even more amazing. 20/10, purchased in 2018 Got some 20 edt Fahrenheit but also just got some 1996 and i have some 1999 on its way. This was my first cologne back in Summer 1994, where my ex girlfriend bought it as a birthday present to me.
