Reviews of Néroli Sauvage

i have a decant sample of this ..and have been wearing it quite regularly...even though the notes and perfume is very classy and has a very nice fragrance but the major problem with this is the longevity and sillage ... as both are below average ..doesn't last beyond 20 mins ...with the result that you have to apply it again and again ..with the hope that it stays ..which defeats the purpose of a fragrance which you love and expect to last ....considering that you paid through your nose such a high creed price for it ..
if Neroli is your thing , this is not the perfume for it due to the above issue ...and hence I will give it a neutral rating --Nice perfume but doesn't last beyond 20mins --hence cant recommend.

Neroli Sauvage is a good bergamot/lemon/neroli combo, so a citrus/soap combination of a warm weather fragrance. Best suited for a summer day, the citrus-dominant opening give way to a neroli- and ambergris-dominated dry down, certainly appropriate for both formal and informal circumstances in the warmer months. It adopts some of the pleasant cleanliness of a bathroom without smelling like cleaning fluid. Certifiably fresh, for sure. Some seem to identify this as a women's fragrance but it certainly is innocuous enough to work for either gender, though I'm sure opinions on neroli vary.

At the millesime/EDP concentration, the projection and longevity expectations are decently high, so at merely average for both, I found Neroli Sauvage a little disappointing, given the Creed price tag (Silver Mountain Water and Aventus, for example, are other warm weather Creed entries that last and project greater, at least on my skin). One might be better served by Thierry Mugler cologne for something a little lighter and a lot cheaper (or 4711, even lighter and cheaper, to that point), or Tom Ford Neroli Portofino for something more concentrated and even more expensive. It just seems that enough fragrances have gone down the road of neroli to render Neroli Sauvage unappealing in the quality/price spectrum.

Still, an enjoyable scent that, if price were not a factor, might end up in my collection.

The Grapefruit and bergamot appear and disappear very quickly. The Neroli adds a sweet floral orangy scent and it's made more floral with the verbena. The sillage is big and I did end up getting a headache with this one.

Creed's overblown ego reveals itself again with Neroli Sauvage. This is nice enough, a bold cedar and citrus fragrance that reads pure and lasts 7+ hours on skin. Not that unique however and you can find the same profile and qualities for far less. The exorbitant price for Creed fragrances is entirely for the name and how many people carry around the bottle to show where there cologne came from?

Genre: Citrus

Zap! Pow! Blam! Neroli Sauvage kicks you in the solar plexus with a dry, smoky, woody attack that puts Bois du Portugal to shame! There’s no hint that this could evolve into a citrus scent. A bold chypre or a bone dry leather? Sure. But citrus? CITRUS???

The topnotes convinced me immediately that Creed got the “sauvage” part right. It also got me gleefully anticipating a modern Creed fragrance that wasn’t just another Green Irish Tweed/Millesime Imperial/Himalaya/Silver Mountain Water/Erolfa clone. It takes several minutes for Neroli Sauvage to start mellowing and sweetening up. When it does, the dry woody notes reveal themselves as cedar and slightly harsh aromatics, seasoned with some sweet spices. Any citrus component stays relatively shy, leaving me with a dry chypre more than a citrus flavor. Not that that’s bad – one of my favorite “citrus” scents is the dark, ambery Mandarine-Mandarin. If Mandarine-Mandarin is citrus dressed up in a rich, smoky oriental gown, then Neroli Sauvage is a citrus in chypre clothing. Neroli Sauvage has much more in common with classic Creed fragrances like Cypres-Musc and Bois de Cédrat than with the modern Creed scents, and that’s all for the better as far as I’m concerned!

The fresh neroli-citrus start is very nice albeit subdued and ways from the blasts that, for instance, Bois de Cedrat or Selsction Verte provide. After an hour the drydown with a mix of wood, vanilla and a touch of spice is pleasant. Good for warm weather if you want a restrained scent for work, but nothing sensational.
