This represents the light version of the 1998’s Fahrenheit Dior and was introduced in 2007 as a spring fragrance in the oriental woody olfactory group. Fahrenheit 32 was created by the Dior’s in-house perfumer Francois Demachy, who worked with perfumer Louise Turner. The name suggest the frozen white of the ice, given by the fact that 32° Fahrenheit corresponds to the 0°C temperature. Also the image of ice and frozen world is evoked with the presentation, having a bottle that begins with transparent glass at the bottom and, as it advances to the neck, transforms slowly into an opaque shade of white. The stopper exhibits a metallic color, maintained also for the packaging box, which includes silver tones as well.
The creation of Francois Demachy is constructed around solely 3 notes, one for each phase: top, middle and base. Fahrenheit 32 begins with orange blossom, the heart follows with vetiver and the finale is reserved for vanilla. The orange blossom exhibited in the early stage reminds of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fleur de Male, however the latter is more aromatic. Also, if the image of Fahrenheit presented a man prepared to walk until the end of the world for finding an ideal, this time the man climbs the mountains, the sensation of ice being strongly associated with the silver-white colors used for this fragrance’s chromatic. The dominating tone in Fahrenheit 32 is vanilla together with orange blossom which accentuates the floral freshness. This subtle and light masculine perfume may be appealing for women as well, although the feminine side is very soft.
I consider Fahrenheit 32 an average perfume, which has potential due to the similarity with the other products in the Dior range.
