Fahrenheit Absolute by Dior
We start with violet. I find this note to be a tricky one, however the rendition used here isn't off putting. It's spatial more than it is transparent and feels like a canopy that the other notes seek cover under. There isn't very many notes implemented in Absolute and it relies on Aoud and myrrh with a low volume smoke from incense to not only reach its potential, but to do it within minutes.
I sampled this months ago and didn't think much of it at the time. This time, I gave it a proper sampling and took my time considering it. I am not a fan or detractor of Aoud in general. I simply like to sample them one at a time since they are all different renditions and I find Absolute to be a nice, new release. The violet subsides considerably after 5 minutes and when it does, it compliments the aoud accord. Nice creation from Dior.
