A sweeter, less lively version of the original Dior Sauvage, this EDP looked to build on the success of the bestselling men’s fragrance of this generation.
Again, accessible, easy-to-wear and with great performance; but – f0r me – not enough of a difference to justify the extra cost.

Base: Ambroxan, Vanilla.
What They Say…
Its intense and smooth scent is nocturnal and fresh, mysteriously powerful in its perfectly made-to-measure freshness. Calabrian Bergamot adds its juicy signature. Refined and somewhat fierce, Indonesian Nutmeg accompanies Sichuan Pepper and Pink Pepper, the signature notes of Sauvage, as the woody ambery trail of Ambroxan® is wrapped in the smoky accents of Papua New Guinean Vanilla absolute for greater virility.
François Demachy created this scent as an ode to nature, summoning the beauty of raw materials chosen for their rarity, as well as for the particular conditions in which they were cultivated. Patchouli is cultivated and processed in the remote forests of Indonesia. Its “raw” essence is redistilled several times in Grasse to retain only the heart. Divested of its earthy and camphorous accents, this Patchouli fraction is close to what is considered an ideal Patchouli.
