Very helpful Review
The first sunrays of the approaching spring day break through the thin cloud cover and make their way through the treetops of the coniferous forest. The light of the sun illuminates the green mossy ground of the forest, on whose morning dew the light rays glitter like little diamonds. The forest itself, idyllically situated in a rugged mountain valley, is still surrounded by billowing wafts of mist in the early morning. Surrounded and enclosed by rugged mountain peaks and untouched nature, the icy cold mountain stream ripples down into the valley.
Silence and calm dominate the idyll. Only the rushing of the water, the singing of the birds and the knocking of a woodpecker can be heard. Far away from the hectic pace of everyday life. No people, no cities, no voices, no noise - nothing! The fresh and pure air of the forest fills the lungs. The soft forest floor grounds our innermost self, and we find space and time to return to our source - Return to the Source!
I love to visit such landscapes. To be connected with the forces of nature, to be reminded a bit where our roots are. Puristic, spirit clarifying elements in their pure form...
Since I live in the south of Germany, with the Alps and forests practically on my doorstep, I can visit suitable scenarios and landscapes relatively easily.
Eau Sauvage is now just such an ethereal pacemaker to perfectly support such natural experiences. When I close my eyes and smell the fragrance, I can think of such a place in the sense of an olfactory pause moment.
First and foremost, the eau revitalises with its fresh, slightly citrusy effervescence. Just like the situation of standing next to a mountain stream whose rippling water gently moistens the skin. The moss on the forest floor and at the roots of the trees, still slightly glittering from the morning dew, evokes a mild herbaceous note. Both together make a wonderful prelude.
A green-harsh chord can be perceived rising from the forest floor. Fragrant and steaming under the fog of the trees. Very mild and wonderfully embedded in the early morning hours of the still so young day. The surrounding majestic trees, with their balsamic and resinous presence, determine the whole picture of this landscape, giving the fragrance the necessary depth and intensity. The rugged and angular surrounding mountain landscape makes the fragrance appear sufficiently wild and daring.
So that the incident sunrays again convey warmth to draw the entire impressions soft and filigree, they even create a subtle sweetness.
For me, this is an image that can be manifested when I absorb Eau Sauvage intensively and process it internally. Even the greenish colour of the fragrance fits perfectly to this idea. On the one hand the fragrance conveys an enormously rough and wild side, but on the other hand it also appears very harmonious and balanced. Due to the high balsamic-resinous part in a certain way even calming.
The liquid in the bottle appears relatively oily. In this respect, I assume an appropriate proportion of fragrances. This again is confirmed in the shelf life as well as in the silage. Eau Sauvage lasts a good 6 - 7 hours on my skin with a good perceptibility.
In conclusion, Dior's creation in the 2012 version is for me a successful interpretation of untamed wilderness and gentle nature...
At the wild river...
Let's go back to the source...
The origin of life...
To the rhythm of nature...
