Dior Fahrenheit Absolute (2009) {New Perfume} {Men's Cologne}

Dior will introduce a new, darker, and more intense version of the instantly recognizable men's classic Fahrenheit originally launched in 1988; the new fragrance is called Fahrenheit Absolute. It will be a flanker to both the original floral for men and to a more recent 2007 addition, Fahrenheit 32.

The image that inspires the composition is that of a man departing for an adventure at the end of the earth while walking on magma in fusion...

The atmosphere is surreal, incandescent and you are made to wonder if you are at the beginning or the end of an age.

The famous violet note remains while resinous myrrh has been added to the head notes, incense to the heart and oud to the base. This is decidedly the year of oud for many perfume brands in 2009.

Other notes mentioned are carnation and nutmeg.

Fahrenheit Absolute will be available from August 27th, 2009. 50 ml - 58,50 €  ; 100 ml - 80,90 €

  1. I'm excited about this! I've always loved Fahrenheit, as it's the "boy's version" of my old discontinued love, Ultima II Sheer Scent. Does anyone remember that one? It came and went in the 90's.

  2. I tried this fragrance during my lunch break and was instantly captivated. I love anything "oudy" as it concocts images of hareems, incense sellers and Middle Eastern shisha pipes. Nice that oud has been added to one of the more affordable scents.The likes of Montale and Tom Ford's Private Blends are a bit out of my league. Farenheit Absolute is very deep and woodsy but the original 1988 scent still lives on in the top notes. I never thought I would go back to Farenheit. Just goes to show.
