Dior are really getting their money’s worth from the Sauvage brand. It’s a real crowd pleaser… if you want to smell like everyone else.
It smells good (not great) but it’s not memorable. For me, fragrance is about self expression and finding your own calling card.
If you want to smell good – go for this. If you want to smell great – and unique – try one of the fragrances below.
Dior Sauvage Eau De Parfum Key Notes
- Papua New Guinean Vanilla Absolute – harvested green and then scalded.
- Reggio Bergamot – grown in Calabria. Fruity and zesty with a tinge of pepper.
The creator, François Demachy, relaunched Dior Sauvage in 2015 with the aim to enrich each unique note and give it a ‘new colour’. Sauvage Eau de Parfum opens with crisp Calabrian bergamot, followed by woody Ambroxan, which is wrapped in smokey Papua New Guinean vanilla.
The original Dior Sauvage was created in 1966 by perfumer Edmund Roudnitska. It was the fashion house’s first perfume for men and was called Eau Sauvage, after some guidance from Christian Dior’s friend Percy Savage.
