Fahrenheit by Christian Dior is a Woody Floral Musk fragrance for men. Fahrenheit was launched in 1988. Fahrenheit was created by Jean-Louis Sieuzacand Maurice Roger.
The original Fahrenheit is a revolutionary modern fragrance with top notes of mandarin, a highly original violet accord and a warm cedar, patchouli and leather drydown. A virile, delicate and rounded fragrance.
All Mediterranean countries grow mandarin trees, but the best mandarins are produced in Sicily. The different colors of mandarin, yellow, green and red, correspond to the different stages of ripeness. Essence of mandarin is a citrus note, offering fragrances a fresh and fruity accent. Mandarin is the exotic top note of Fahrenheit.
The leaves of the violet produce a unique and powerful fragrance with green, vegetable and ever so slightly flowery notes. The sensual violet is a surprising heart note in Fahrenheit.
The leather note was originally created to imitate the smell of the Russian leather used to make hussars' boots. Their soft leather was tanned using birch bark. Perfumers recreated these burnt, smoky, birch, styrax and cade notes delivering an exotic, enchanting effect. It features as a base note in Fahrenheit.

Middle notes are nutmeg, honeysuckle, carnation, sandalwood, violet leaf, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and cedar;
Base notes are leather, tonka bean, amber, patchouli, musk and vetiver.
