Reviews of Savile

Seen some reviews on other sites mentioning 1 Million similarities. Maybe Savile has some sweet-powderiness like 1 Million but this really doesn't smell like that at all. This is much more subtle, refined and pleasant. After a little citrus opening, the drydown in the air smells like a really nice fabric softener or dryer sheet. Up close, it smells a bit more oily and not as smooth but in no way unpleasant. It’s very nice and agreeable throughout, nothing weird or offensive. Not sexy, just clean and sweet, best for daytime. Versatile for formal or casual.

Longevity is very good, lasting all day but it never really projects heavily, which makes it nice for work situations.

Savile opens with a brief blast of woody cedar before it quickly transitions to its early heart. During the early heart the fragrance features light powdery lavender and rich jasmine florals joining relatively fruity green patchouli as an underlying lively citric apple-like undertone adds balance. As the heart phase progresses the citric apple-like aspect recedes, replaced by a relatively sweet pipe tobacco enriched woody undertone that grows in intensity and remains through the rest of the core development. During the late dry-down the sweet pipe tobacco and patchouli slowly recede, revealing powdery dry vanilla in the base that dominates through the finish. Projection is above average and longevity outstanding at over 15 hours on skin.

Savile is a composition that has generally flown under the radar in 2013. I received a sample of the fragrance from a generous fellow fragrance lover and had I not I too may have overlooked it. With a name like Savile I expected a bit of a different fragrance early-on as instead jasmine and patchouli-laced woods joined sweet pipe tobacco. That said, the late dry-down softens considerably as the fragrance completely morphs into a gentle powdery vanilla finish that fits the fragrance name if lacking the same interest level of the rest of the development. In fact the late dry-down is probably the most disappointing part, but the perfumer deserves credit for at least not having the powdery vanilla come off too strong so that those who are powder averse can still at least tolerate it. The bottom line is the $115 per 75ml bottle Savile is a largely successful and pleasant smelling but somewhat unoriginal composition that may be a bit too sweet and powdery at times, earning a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 rating.
