“He who ruled scent ruled the hearts of people.” – Patrick Süskind
What’s in a perfume? Much more than a compelling name, a well-designed bottle and a rich blend of smells diluted in alcohol. There’s a fascination. Primordial. Utter. Untameable. That comes from flesh and arrives straight to the brain. With no filters. Yes, no filters. I’m sorry. Or better, I’m glad there’s none. And from the brain that fascination gets back to the flesh and produces actions. Running. Running. Running. From you. To You. From You. To you.
Smell seems to be the first sense animals and humans developed and oddly that we use the least. Usually nobody teaches us how to smell properly. And don’t tell me it’s because perceptions don’t need guidance. Please. Senses need training. A lot of. Which means time, patience and effort.
But getting back to the first question, what’s in this perfume?
There’s the remembering of a handsome globetrotter father, who used to enchant audiences in the theaters and had always a bottle of Dior Farenheit in his travel bag. There’s a little girl taking her father’s cloth from the bathroom to smell her daddy’s cheek scent when he had left and her tears falling on the same cloth to melt with that scent, like an invisible kiss. (To you, from you, from you, to you).
There’s the charm of the bold, powerful, magnetic man of today, who can always surprise with his rich imagination. Because he’s open to the world and to nature. He knows how to play with hot and cold, manhood and sweetness. He’s a dreamer, chasing the infinite. Running. Running. Running. To you. From You. To you. From You.
Fahrenheit starts with a scintillating, fruity, vibrant floral opening, which leads to an unusual, longer-lasting floral accord. Mandarin is the exotic top note: a Mediterranean fruit that typically grows in Sicily and conveys a fresh touch to the fragrance. The base note instead is leather, recreated by perfumers for its burnt, smoky, birch, styrax and cade notes which deliver an enchanting effect. The real surprise is the heart note of violet, which is usually present in female perfumes but is quite unique in a male bouquet.
Smelled by the neck of your beloved, this fragrance can be truly irresistible. And if it’s the signature of your beloved, what better reason to have a bottle in your travel bag? And why not a shower gel bottle in your bathroom?
