Un commentaire sauvage
Bienvenue chers membres,

first of all, I don't know the french language, and everything so far has been created with the kind support of Google translators.

So now to the comment, to a fragrance that even people who are not in this forum know. This unmistakable ambroxan bomb has been under the nose of almost everyone. From teenager to office worker, sooner or later everyone notices this scent in his environment.
In my time of stringent perfume enthusiasm, I have learned one thing about my nose: as much as I want to like most of the fragrances, I try out as many different samples as I can ... the rarest, even the highest rated bottles can hardly ever convince me. I always find those one or two corners of a fragrance that bother me. Most of them are clearly works of art, but with my petite 22 years I have other things on my mind than smelling like a spice rack.
Nevertheless, I'm drifting away, the topic might be worth a blog article value.

So now to the scent... the lead is a synthetic pepper/ambroxan bomb, even if this one has a slight background of vanilla in contrast to EdT, which somehow gives the whole thing a base and slightly disarms the roaring spiciness.
The Drydown is rather unspectacular, the Ambroxan lasts for a long time, and because of the strong radiation the detail for your own nose gets lost quickly. What at the beginning was only SAUVAGE aroma now falls into the very well known basic part of the "blue" band. The vanilla is less, to no longer noticeable. H/S Top, you really can't complain about that... may be that the EdT keeps on ticking more, but that's criticism on a fussy level.

Sauvage is controversial, because it is everything you don't want to be in this forum.
Not only is it a mainstream perfume, no it is currently THE mainstream perfume.
It does not stand out from the crowd, it is not an olfactory work of art & moreover every 16 year old knows that this water smells good.
Wait, wait, wait, wait. did he just say well?
Yeah, Sauvage smells good, not on an artistic level. The scent is simply fresh, uncomplicated and a majority of people perceive it as extremely pleasant without the need for retronasal analysis.

Do I wear the scent often?
No, please, I'm on perfume & not to smell like everybody :D

Do I wear the scent?
Yes, if it should simply work, if I can't decide, because with this you really can't make a mistake in any situation.

Fresh compliment getter!
One of the most controversial fragrances on the market. Loved and hated by so many people around the world. One thing its true: this is a major compliment getter and a beast in terms of performance.

I have to admit that I love this fragrance. It was love at first sniff. It never failed me and it will always be in my collection. Its not complex, its not groundbreaking but it works. I have some niche bottles and some complex fragrances in my stash and I still like it. Not everything has to be dense and complex, sometimes its nice to grab something like this and collect some compliments. Because you will be noticed and people tend to react in a good way to this. Try it, at least.

It's time to say goodbye...
... from Dior Sauvage EdP.

Several years have passed since I first smelled the eau de toilette of the now infamous Dior Sauvage range. In the meantime, three bottles have already been emptied, two of them of the eau de parfum.
I have to say that I can certainly understand why Sauvage is so polarizing. In all three versions, the Ambroxan note is present, more or less clearly, which seems quite "scratchy". So my clear favourite is the EdP, as it manages to dampen the rough note with its milder character. I haven't been able to test the perfume extensively yet, so I can't really judge it.

To the fragrance: Dior Sauvage EdP begins fresh and spicy. The bergamot and pepper come clearly to the fore. Ambroxan is also very present, although this is very temperature-dependent. Especially on warmer days this can quickly become too much. Fortunately this weakens relatively quickly. The scent doesn't change much anymore, only the vanilla gets ready and softens the scent a bit, which I appreciate very much.

The shelf life is very good, especially for a fresh fragrance. Applied in the morning it lasts a good 8 hours, whereby the silage is clearly noticeable in the first hours.

Portable, the EdP is for anyone looking for an everyday scent with good performance. Sparingly dosed, it should cut a good figure at work or school. It is also a good, though not the best choice for going out.

All in all it is a very good fragrance. Although the DNA is not the most original on the market, it still has enough unique selling points to distinguish Sauvage from other "blue" fragrances. So I also liked it and have worn it more often than almost any other perfume. Often the reactions were very positive. Although I don't think much of expressions like "Pantydropper" or similar chubby frippery, I must say that especially women were often very fond of Sauvage (EdT and EdP). This is just a statement and I distance myself from everything that is currently on YouTube.
And this brings me to the big shortcoming of this fragrance (and the whole series). It has become so crowded and everyone seems to own a copy that I can hardly bring myself to wear it. At this point I remember a little anecdote, when the cashier at the gas station, about my age, asked me about the scent. Her ex-boyfriend had already worn it, so she had given both her father and her current boyfriend Dior's wonder water. That's when I decided to use up the bottle I had opened and then look for an alternative. Not a day too soon, because soon the name Dior Sauvage was heard on every corner. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the mainstream and own enough of the fragrances that fall under it. However, when there is an exponential increase in the number of users (see One Million), then I too long for individuality and character.
In the meantime I haven't worn a version of Dior Sauvage for over a year and feel comfortable without it. It has always served me well over the last few years, but it was long time for something new.

I would like to refer to my commentary on the Eau de Toilette.

The Swiss Army Knife from Dior
In my opinion, you don't have to write much more about this fragrance. Everyone knows it and everyone has it. But one still differentiates which concentration one finds best ;)

For me it is and will remain Dior Sauvage EDP. Shelf life is sometimes a good 8-12 hours and sillage is easily perceptible. The scent is also very well wearable in autumn and winter due to the pepper note. You can use the fragrance for every occasion and every season. However, I would advise against it in midsummer. I had already had strong headaches because of the Ambroxan and even had to take an aspirin to get rid of them. After 1-2 weeks my nose/head got used to it.

But find that the fragrance is slowly going out of fashion, because I had already smelled it very often with everyone. For me it died when I was still working in a bar and 3 other colleagues had the same scent:D then the whole restaurant smelled like Dior Sauvage. I hate to smell something like everyone else because the individuality is lost. But despite all those who still celebrate this scent thumbs up;)!

The first
Appropriately, I also write my first comments on my first Durft.
Sauvage EdP was my first perfume. It was the end of September 2018 on a rainy Saturday and I had decided that a perfume would be quite appropriate with a suit at work...
Well, whatever. I snatched up two good friends hoping they'd have more experience in the field than I did.
I remember wandering around the shelves smelling all kinds of scents Unfortunately, I realized relatively quickly that my nose was completely overwhelmed by all these new things. So I put away scents, which I found pretty good half a year later.

In the end and after a long search with a very persistent saleswoman (I think we spent about two hours there...) the choice was between Sauvage EdP and Bleu de Chanel EdP.
The contract was awarded to Sauvage because I actually liked it better. (Chanel followed soon after, because I couldn't get the smell out of my head)

For me at that time the EdP was softer and more pleasant to smell compared to the EdT. I found the EdT kind of pungent.
The fragrance begins pleasantly fresh and then slowly changes in a slightly spicy direction, without, for me, losing any of its freshness. In the end, this mixture moves through the whole day like this. I don't smell big changes (can also be due to my still very inexperienced nose).
I think the durability is great. After 10 hours at work I can still perceive the scent on me and partly also my surroundings Otherwise it is very room filling. Just when I had it new, I could still perceive the smell in the room days later.
For me he is a beautiful all-rounder who fits to everything and every weather without appearing big over the top.

The bottle is also a beauty in itself. A rather fine sprayer, the magnetic lid and the colour gradient in the glass make it look really good
In the meantime Sauvage has slipped backwards for me. I don't know why. I like to smell it very much, also with others and when I apply it there is always a trace of nostalgia for this rainy Saturday Maybe I should put it back on.

Modern classicism
It is very, very difficult to talk about the most talked about (and criticized) perfume of the last 10 years, it is very difficult to objectively talk about it, I write this review forgetting for a while about all the masterpieces born in the world of perfumery.
That said, Dior Sauvage, it is a very good perfume, excellent sillage and longevity, it attracts many, many, congratulations.
The protagonist of the perfume is undoubtedly the Ambroxan, which makes me connect Sauvage by force to Blue de Chanel, the undisputed forerunner of chemical / woody perfumes, but while the latter is slightly "generic" and linear, Sauvage is much more vibrant , peppery, spicy, or perhaps even too much in the EDT version, for this reason I much prefer the EDP version. I still remember the first time I sprayed Sauvage edt on my wrist, to say the least annoying to my nose the opening and too dry the drydown, I could not wait to take a shower to be honest.
As I said, the EDP corrects the things that bothered me about my brother, richer, softer and less pungent.
The perfume opens with a riot of spices, pepper, bergamot, nutmeg, and star anise, a very special atmosphere, metallic, blue, a heart instead earthy, musky, fresh woody, moist and then there is the bottom, of gray amber (synthetic) and woods (cedar?) the base may seem but it is not at all generic, because the spices, the spicy, the metallic will always be felt.
Despite being a modern and "futuristic" perfume, to an overall olfactory pattern similar to the classic fougère of the 70s, spicy citrus and fresh spices on the top, and base of balsamic woods, and amber that give a dark and mysterious air but at the same time sparkling and shiny. It reminds me so much of a wet forest at the first light of dawn. A mix of contrasts, which make the perfume very complex, albeit in its "simplicity" of ingredients.
Aside from the long duration and evolution of the perfume, after about an hour the smell of the Ambroxan-Patchouli-vetiver combination is felt on the skin, which makes the perfume slightly more mature, warmer, typical of old-school perfumes and absolutely elegant, discreet, classy.
As I said, an absolutely good perfume, the fact of being so much advertised has its medal aspect, many people criticize it without even smelling it, others criticize it by comparing it with the old perfumes, not realizing that similar masterpieces, unfortunately, they will no longer be born, neither among designers nor among niches. Unfortunately, modern perfumes must be smelled with an open mind and a closed heart.

The irrelevant middle brother between the young fresh EdT and the adult perfume.
The mediocre brother of little brother Sauvage EdT and big brother Sauvage Parfum.
Unfortunately, I don't really see the point, as the EdT is simply the winner in terms of price and the perfume is the dearer and warmer adult in the family.
It's not bad at all, but apart from the other concentrations, the competition is too great, especially since there is still competition from Bleu de Chanel.
For me in all areas a 7 and therefore not really important or relevant beside the other crowdpleasers.

EdT with spicy twist
What should be said about this fragrance that has not been said a thousand times before: Fresh-Spicy, Crowd-Pleaser, Sexy, Allrounder etc., but unfortunately for me it is nothing more:
On a relaxed working day, just before my birthday, the thought shot through my head that I was going to treat myself to something nice. It's worth noting that at the time, my perfume collection consisted solely of Versace Eros, The Dreamer and Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger. My entire knowledge of the fragrance world was based on a few videos by Jeremy Fragrance, which also influenced this purchase. Quickly I redeemed the 20% voucher and boom, bought was the thing
The opening is on par with the freshness of the EdT, which is, however, immediately trumped by a dominant spicy note. Slowly the beautiful sauvage freshness fades into the background, while the spice penetrates the noses of those within a radius of 2m. This spicy-fresh blend remains the same for most of the day. A striking fragrance development is no longer recognizable afterwards.

The sillage and durability of this perfume is, at least in the field of designer fragrances, hard to beat. You also have to let it melt in your mouth that this is a fresh scent, which has partly 12H performance on the skin. For the durability it has definitely earned 10/10 points.

The packaging, just like the bottle, are as usual from the designer house Dior, remarkable, but not extraordinary. The great sprayer and the magnetic cap give the whole package that certain something again.

Would I recommend you buy a Sauvage scent? YES: If you don't need to stand out from the crowd, go for it Do I regret my purchase? No: In the meantime I'm no longer a fan of the superstar, but I respect him for the elegant introduction to the world of fragrances on my part.

Small remark: This is my first comment, I would be very grateful for constructive criticism

From polarizer to shaver
I already liked the original "Sauvage" in EdT-strength, at that time torn by quite a few. Even if it never made it into my collection, even if my review wasn't a real paean of praise and even if the similarities to the blue of Chanel are, were, will always be - Dior definitely hit the ravages of time with the fresh and fruity Johnny Depper. Or at least one facet of the current generation of men's fragrances. One could even talk about a changing of the guard together with the Chanel bestseller of such spicy-sweet firecrackers like the gold bar. But I never felt that I had to test the EdP or the even newer perfume from "Sauvage" right away. Hence my two cents. But fragrance reviews are not a race, but a very personal matter and journey... Goat comes when he wants.

"Sauvage EdP" deepens and darkens the preceding fresh synthetic ambroxane DNA a good deal, which makes the fragrance for me in direct comparison much more appealing and of higher quality. It's still a high pitched, cold shower, still a bit far from the chemistry lab and there's nothing really wild here. More like safe and tight. But "Sauvage EdP" still kicks my nose quite conspicuously into orgiastic realms. Ok, that's a little bit on the (anyway long since started) hypetrain, the good ratings in general might be a little bit of a compensation for some (maybe a little premature and exaggerated?!) snap - but for me this seems to be a natural process. To like is to almost love. Perfume/next level then pure love?! Well, let's see. I wish.

"Sauvage EdP" is a fresh peppery update on the lavender. Super clean, super pure, super synthetic. But never a bad burp. In this version less than ever. Crystal clear and synthetics made right. Crashing, confident, kind of... noble?! Funny. Synthetics and refinement are rarely associated, but here the equation yields exactly that. Meanwhile even already transferred something?! Yeah, maybe. But nada changes my fascination. If Tom Ford wasn't wearing his own scent, I'd say a bullet like this Pure, huge, rat-tastic. So to attack EdP more than before. Thicker and more mature. The aniseed perfectly adjusted, vanilla on my skin fortunately only very late present, nutmeg as pepper wingman. Not bad, Mr. Cheapskate!

Flacon: beautiful, heavy, strong
Sillage: covered in the evening, still potent
Durability: very, very good, no question. If you're not blinded by smell - 9 hours!

Conclusion: a real improvement, refinement, thickening and refinement of the already solid original. Great. Can the perfume do any more?! ;) Go Go Blue Ranger!

WHY THE HATE?
Man... I waited so long to try the Sauvage DNA based on various hates.
Honestly, I don't understand.
If this is generic, I don't understand. Ain't nothing smell like this and ain't nothing smells this good.

Thankfully not a lot of people here where i live wear frags so man, I can get away with wearing this a lot.

This is a MASTERPIECE by Monsieur Demachy, Period.

Thanks to vanilla and subtle sweetness, EdP appears rounder and more harmonious than EdT. Besides, ambroxan is restrained. It did a good job
