Although Fahrenheit from Dior is not among my favorite perfumes, I must admit that this is a great fragrance. And since it had to be at least one element in the Fahrenheit collection that goes fine with my taste, this one is Fahrenheit Absolute, a more intense and darker version of the original perfume, launched in 1998. Arrived on the market in September 2009, this woody floral musk scent is dedicated to the 21st anniversary of the original and was designed by the master perfumer of Dior, Francois Demachy.
This scent highlights the masculinity expressed by the original Fahrenheit and takes it to the other level, by emphasizing the notes of the original. The power of Fahrenheit Absolute comes from emphasizing the darker notes, and concentrating in the leather, the result being a fragrance that will make history. According to the official this is “a sensual smoldering fragrance constructed around rare materials that release their scent when warmed”. The first olfactory impression comes from the essence of Ethiopian myrrh and the delicacy of violet flower, heart is reserved for Somalian incense and leather while the base belongs to the oud wood from Laos.
The flask of Fahrenheit Absolute preserve the original shape, except this time the chromatic revolves around the shades of deep red and silent black. The combination of red and black is irresistible, conferring a note of augmented elegance, in comparison with the 1998’s creation. The image associated with the ad campaign suggests an esoteric journey till the words’ end in the quest for the hot lava. The man that wears Absolute plays with fire as he feels comfortable with this task.
Fahrenheit Absolute is conferring style and elegance to the confident man who wears it, which are also 2 symbols of the fashion house founded by Christian Dior.
