On a rainy day in April, I went to the perfumery of my choice in search of a new fragrance. As soon as I entered the shop I was presented with a stand full of Dior Sauvage fragrances, so I curiously asked the shop assistant what the smell was all about. "She asked me, horrified and surprised, as if I had just revealed to her that I didn't know how the Internet works.
Long speech, short sense, she sprayed me Dior Sauvage EDT on the left and EDP on the right forearm and I smelled and smelled and smelled... EDT convinced me very much, a bit edgy maybe, a bit too "youthful" possibly, yet fresh, special and certainly an eye-catcher. EDP knocked me over: this freshness, this smooth and gentle, almost floating fragrance experience, the perfect dosage of all nuances, this rounded, grounded, which the EDT lacked, I found in the EDP.
So I bought a 60 ml bottle of the EDP - the first time I tried a fragrance and bought it immediately.
I couldn't stop sniffing at my forearm. Of course, many people now say that this fragrance is "mainstream" and you can smell it on every corner, but that's exactly why I love it so much. It is certainly a mainstream fragrance, it has what everyone likes, which is why it is so damn suitable for the masses. It simply goes down well - at work, at leisure, on a date, in the gym, in the club, hiking and in the fine restaurant. There is no scenario where I could not imagine this fragrance on me.
The fragrance is definitely a compliment catcher, when I wear it I am constantly addressed that I smell good or even asked what perfume I am using. Speaks for itself. So far I have only received such feedback from One Million in 2009/10/11 and Tom Ford Oud Wood.
But unlike One Million, Dior Sauvage EDP simply always goes, not just to the club. And Oud Wood... just a completely different league!
For me, Dior Sauvage EDP is the all-rounder that always goes. When I don't know what fragrance to wear today, I go for Dior Sauvage EDP and am absolutely perfect.
The durability is above average with me, loosely 8 hours plus, Sillage is likewise top and the compliments remain only rarely missing
It's the scent that convinces simply because of its mass suitability, because it always leaves when nothing else works, because it's my ace in the sleeve and my last joker, because it convinces the masses and the masses love it.
The probably only minus point - I share it probably with many others, why I love it however surely not less, but perhaps still a little bit more!
