Very helpful Review
This scent has actually triggered a discussion within the family. Dior Sauvage EdP vs La Rive Extreme Story
By the way, I became aware of this perfume through this forum here.
Not even in my dreams would I have come up with the idea to test a perfume for 6 Euro ...let alone to buy it! Sauvage as EdP I have now for a good 2 months in my collection, and for me it is currently one of the best fragrances I know .
The fact that this fragrance is very close to the original, has made me curious of course.
So quickly to DM , and off we go with the A/B comparison .
3 persons within the family were provided by me as test objects, and nobody knew which fragrances were involved, let alone what they cost
After spraying on La Rive you have to give it a good 20 minutes time, the top note stinks intensely after 0815 deodorant in combination with antifreeze ......only then the sauvage DNA comes to light.
My mother, who probably has the best nose in the family, tended DIRECTLY to Sauvage .... my father said Sauvage was less intrusive, but in the base almost identical to this one.
I personally, who had both fragrances on my arm, one on the left, one on the right, had trouble and trouble keeping them apart at all.
La Rive is almost identical in the base, but comes a little fresher & pepperier, while Sauvage is a little warmer / spicier & sweeter.
While we continued to discuss, another 5-10 minutes passed by .... and my mother also wanted to test again, now suddenly she said that the two fragrances would smell more and more similar
In the end, I explained which perfumes were involved, and the Sauvage 60 ml costs around 70 Euros, while the La Rive only costs 6 Euros for 75 ml ......the speechless faces were unique !
Now something about durability & Sillage .
The Sillage is, if you increase the dosage by 50% compared to the Sauvage, almost identical ...but only for about the first 3 hours .... after that he will be closer and closer to the skin
The durability is actually quite good, and is around 6 hours, whereby I could still perceive the scent on the skin even after 12 hours.
For in between this fragrance is therefore very suitable, but you could also use it for layering ......with the original e.g. .........this one here as deodorant and/or body spray in summer, and from the original then just much less on the neck .
The quality & class of a Sauvage does not have this scent, but considering the price, the result is impressive !
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you give it at least 15 minutes time after spraying on, because the top note is almost repeatable !
