When Dior was making fragrances with character
I admit that what I'm writing now is perhaps only a tribute to Eau Sauvage Parfum (2012) in part and a swan song to the Dior brand in part. Because in addition to Eau Sauvage Parfum I also mention, and not too briefly, the current, very successful fragrances from Mr. Damachy's Dior chemistry set. This is probably forever yesterday and, in addition, quite culturally pessimistic.

But I can't and don't like to do otherwise, because that which just once again delights me on the wrist after a long time has so much strength, stubbornness and character that it deserves a tribute, combined with a swan song to a house that is apparently only able to launch unspecific fragrances at ever shorter intervals.

Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum is only eight years old in my version of 2012 and seems to be out of time. Strong bergamot at the beginning is the connection to the wonderfully floating original, but in my case it is accompanied almost instantly by extremely potent myrrh. The latter then very soon pushes strongly into the foreground, leaving only a hint of the original. I like this scratchy, smoky myrrh very much, it makes the fragrance unmistakable and unique. After a good hour it is also only slightly cushioned by a grassy sweetness of vetiver. If you believe the comments on parfumo about the reformulation that appeared five years later, which did away with myrrh and which I don't know, in 2017 (i.e. just three years ago) Eau Sauvage Parfum even managed to improve and accentuate Eau Sauvage Parfum again closer to the original, without giving up its originality and potency. As I said, I can't judge that.

I can say, however, that Dior apparently no longer intends to launch such powerful, high-quality fragrances: even the magnificent Dior Homme recently underwent a complete redesign towards contourlessness. Heaven knows what else LVHM is up to with Homme intense. The very idea gives me the creeps! And about Sauvage and its offshoots I cover the (old, so dusty) cloak of silence.

I suppose that's the problem: Fragrances in the designer area are no longer made for "dusty" people like me or my age (46). All others, who like the "new Dior", are welcome to do so and you may please be lenient with me regarding my tirade on Dior.
But perhaps there are more perfumers I speak or write to from the depths of my soul who are mourning the not-so-long ago days when Dior was still making fragrances with character.

Masterpiece !
Very high quality fragrance! Very rich, dark and distinguished. it testifies to the quality of this line.
The opening of bergamot followed by a dry woody note combined perfectly with the deep and resinous note of myrrh, give this fragrance a unique alluring that i've never smelled before.
Only for the people who know how to be classy. Masterpiece!

Eau Sauvage Parfum Original
In this video review, i cover both 2012 and 2017 versions of this scent and compare the differences between the two, and ultimately which one I prefer a bit more. Sometimes we lament reformulations of our favourite perfumes, is any different here?

Dark & Mysterious...
I find this one an instant hit with people who love interesting perfumes. This just goes to show that time and time again that the house of Dior under Demachy can produce outstanding work - on par with niche. In fact, Eau Sauvage Parfum feels like a niche fragrance. I think that the notes of bergamot, vetiver & myrrh are slightly misleading and simplistic, there is still a trace of the Hedione molecule which is the DNA backbone of the Eau Sauvage line (a synthetic jasmine and bright lemon combination).

Again, this fragrance provides excellent quality for money in my opinion. I find it remarkable in that respect, and in my experience has also given me compliments! I can't really fault it for anything, except perhaps to say that it can be a little heavy if over-applied. I would definitely recommend this not for people still getting into perfume but for men and women out there who have an experienced nose in perfumes. A great sophisticated fragrance for a man and an intriguing one for a woman. There's definitely something dark and mysterious with this one. Reminds me of a man wearing a velvet tuxedo. Mysterious, in control, and with a hint of danger and sexiness. Very very good. An instant hit with perfume-heads and worth well beyond the asking price.

One of the best Vetiver based fragrance
Eau Sauvage Parfum has an amazing dark bottle with magnetic cap and a lovely dark green color. Opens with a very strong, dark and smoky citric scent. Later the note that is the most prominent is the myrrh. One of the best Vetiver based fragrance on the market. The more you wear it, the more you love it. It has the best longevity and sillage among Vetiver based fragrances I have ever tried.

Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum Review on YouTube
This is my Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum 2012 Review on YouTube. I figured it was time to re-review this beast of a flanker to the original classic men's fragrance by Dior from the 1960s. What we have is 3 awesome notes of Bergamot, Myrrh and Vetiver amped up to the max. It's delicious and unique enough to be a completely different scent from the original Eau Sauvage but using just the three important notes from Eau Sauvage to make for an awesome and long-lasting fragrance experience for the man who wants to be bold wearing Eau Sauvage. I highly recommend this release from Dior and anyone who wants potent and beast-mode fragrances should definitely seek out Eau Sauvage Parfum. To find out more about Eau Sauvage Parfum 2012 please watch my video. Thank you.

Neoclassic Beauty
Scentrack:
Andy Williams - Wives and Lovers

Although not being a fan of other Eau Sauvage versions, this one is really something for me. Neoclassical, potent, masculine and somehow modern. Great for open space, city walks etc.
Allegedly composed of three notes, but very complex underneath. Bitter bergamot from start till end of fragrance life. Dry and sweet miro resin accompanied by floral note of osmanthus. I detect some curry undertones (Eau Noire?), and beautiful strong and smoked vetiver.
Classic, mature and unpretentious. One of the best offerings from Dior lately.

Rating: 9.5/10

Fougère - sweet smoky - woody
Irrelevant to its ancestor (Eau Sauvage 1966 which is a true classic and sophisticated enough to serve for generation after generation) the current edition borrows only few elements from past and resigns: citrus and vetiver.

Eau Sauvage Parfum proclaim a sharp blast of fougère lavender that is found in abundance in Amouage Sunshine Man. It’s warm, damp and conjures up olfactory impression of tanning oil. The lavender is chamfered by bergamot and lemon in top, and amplified by sandalwood, vetiver and myrrh in base.

The fragrance is a modern fouègre with earthy hints of vetiver and sweet smoky nuances of myrrh that guarantees for wonderful projection and enormous longevity.

Difficult to love in a first sniff..
A dominating Myrrh fragrance from the start till middle , very powerful and somehow different from the available lot...I like the opening though it takes some time to familiar with , initially it reminded me of a cough syrup but gradually the beauty unfolds itself resultingly you will have a lovely musky woody and smoky fragrance and I love this part the most , ....stunning fragrance with very good sillage and longevity. Thumz up.

Intensely aromatic with a fresh citrusy opening and a warm resinous heart made more pungent by a vetiver touch, perfect for the mid season
