A Wild clone called Stone
This fragrance which is sold in a chain of fashion stores called Next is, to my nose at least (and anyone with a sense of smell I reckon), very similar to the incredibly popular but also quite divisive (particularly in the 'fragrance community) crowd pleasing all-rounder Dior Sauvage EDT, so anyone who doesn't like Sauvage you have been warned. I have never owned a full bottle of the Dior fragrance but I have a decant. Comparing the two the opening blast is harsher from UE Stone and it doesn't project quite as much as the Dior scent either but considering the large difference in price this is no big surprise. There are subtle differences in the scents and indeed the notes listed are far from identical here are the 'Stone' notes as listed on the packaging (it's possible that some are simply not listed I suppose);

Top Notes: Pepper & Bergamot
Heart: Geranium & Lavender
Base: Cedar

So apparently a more simple note breakdown compared to Sauvage which also has ambrox, elemi resin, patchouli, vetiver and two types of pepper listed (Sichuan and pink), and possibly a few more. This increased complexity seems to show itself as the Dior fragrance is much smoother and also has more going on when sniffed up close, however in the air the two scents are pretty close.

To cut a long story short, this fragrance is an excellent less expensive option if you are on a budget but want to smell good and have that Dior Sauvage vibe for a lower price. Like most clones it won't replace the high quality (scent and performance) of the original and it won't give you beast mode but it certainly makes a decent effort all the same!

Special thanks to SirSmellAlot who pointed me in the direction of this juice (check out his Youtube channel)!

Scent: 8 (in terms of likeness to Sauvage) 7.5 in terms of personal taste.
Longevity: 7
Projection/Sillage: 6.5
Bottle: 8 (also great sprayer, naff cap though!)
Value for money: 9 (£15 for 100ml)

Dior Sauvage EDT clone
This a good Sauvage clone by Next that lasts about 8+ hours. It has above average projection. It's not as complex as the original however. Worth a punt at €20!

This smells very similar to Sauvage, like a more simplified version. Good longevity for me and decent performance, superb value for money.
