Between
In between. This is the middle one of three children, the tomato and the cucumber in the burger, at the football the sixes on the pitch or the assistant who has to watch the game from the stands. The truth is also a thing that lies somewhere in between. And also the reality comes unexpectedly often in between.

Well, I expected nothing more from the Eau Sauvage Extrême than an intensified, even extreme version of the classic Eau Sauvage. But it's not. I might have guessed. I can read. Yatagan writes it clearly in his statement. Very well, then. It's not too bad.

Because what I perceive from this fragrance is quite excellent in itself. Fresh, soft citrus, fruity and ripe attack. The whole thing already slightly spicy underpainted. Lavender and mint are clearly perceptible in the middle part. After a good hour, the Vetiver joins in clearly and triumphantly. Durability and Sillage are on top level. Excellent balance without disturbing.

After two days of testing, I must confess that Eau Sauvage Extrême reminds me of Eau Sauvage. But not to the EdT but to the two perfume offshoots from 2012 and 2017 respectively. It is above all this creamy-woody base, this particular smell of the vetiver, which unites both fragrances for me. For me, the two perfumes are two works of art that were too exhausting for me in the long run due to their power and opulence. But the Eau Sauvage Extrême is exactly the more pleasant, fresher and therefore more portable variant. It seems that François Demachy deliberately created the Eau Sauvage Extrême as an intermediate step for the perfume variant. Consciously, without wanting to remind you of your big brother.

What should I say in conclusion? In itself, the Eau Sauvage Extrême is an excellent EdT. A chypre at is best. And a clear buy recommendation (as long as it's still available).

Greetings

If you want to be happy all the time, you often have to change. Confucius
After many weak new releases and the search for classics which also deserve the term, Demachy came across these extremes. In former times the extreme ones were also still so in the occurrence.

Unfortunately, he has completely reformulated the Eau Sauvage perfume, or as one might say to this misunderstanding.

Now this in the black bottle and feeling stale and older can be a fragrance after judging the design certainly not be completely perplexed.
What the hell happened here? What is this really good product?
How can you not relaunch such a fresh and spicy fragrance again?
The first impression is perfect. The wrong impression of old or outdated was out of place. Who prefers Silla products with dominance is right here.
The lemon is a masterpiece, one wonders, where are the lemon peelings hidden? The grapefruit knows how to please as well. The bergamot, probably contained for budgetary reasons, is not perceptible. After the Sauvage eau de toilette disaster, you can get back on the Dior bandwagon by letting this masterpiece work.
Amazing how certain fragrances are only hyped with marketing, others like this one, which is in the process of sinking, find almost no more buyers.
The comments are not only here on Parfumo very little, also in the big Fragrantica with the com at the end, not the small D-variant, there are very few descriptions and recommendations.
It seems the time of male chypres is definitely over. Too bad, actually, if you have experienced this top fragrance. He was probably ahead of his time in the first release in 1982, then in 2010 well meant but not many fans either. Sad, because this is actually a niche scent, many others smell similar, with a different name and design and therefore not as dusty as this extreme. The hard core would have to worry about Demachy, how to bring such a qualitatively good and very strong product back again. It is not always necessary to reinvent the wheel, a product can also be repackaged after its life cycle. That would certainly not be a bad idea here.
The mint takes effect after about twenty minutes and comes to the fore very well with the vetiver. These are all arguments to test this eau sauvage and give it a chance.
The entire duration of the fragrance is a little over 10 hours, around 0600, then around 1830 still clearly recognizable, which is of course attributable to the fragrance family Chypre and the wood with the Vetiver.
Very recommendable for a slightly different fragrance experience.
My love for Dior has awakened again.

Nice try!
Eau Sauvage Extreme opens with a pleasant whiff of subtle and quite sweetened citrus with minty herbs on lavender and woods – a woody accord that smells quite warm and almost ambery, with a darker shade of mossy patchouli. Somehow sharp and peppery too, overall honestly not that distant from many other fresh woody-mossy colognes. Take away all the refined warmth of original Eau Sauvage and add some herbal-mossy stuff... I don’t get the “extreme” though, and I don’t see the point of this version since it smells like a cheaper Eau Sauvage, but it smells decent. Nice try!

6,5/10

Ask the basic question: which knob should one tweak while going 'extreme'? Here, it seems, 'spearmint' which I didn't know the original had.+3
