Reviews of Eau Sauvage Parfum (2017 version)

I bought this pretty much on a whim, knowing broadly what I was getting into from the EDT. I've quickly come to appreciate it, and/but the similarities to Pour Monsieur EDP have occasioned an extended period of testing and comparison, not to mention the thread I started on this.

I tend to see ESP and PMP as very similar; really the parfum versions of two of the most prominent masculine chypres. The thread, though, suggests that most do not see that much of a similarity. Investigating this has taken me to the present limits of my descriptive capabilities when it comes to perfume.

So, as best as I can manage it, despite an overall similarity of effect, PMP certainly has more of the "furniture polish" accord, whereas ESP is fresher, with more prominent citrus, and more of a resinous, chewy and textured conclusion. This is not surprising given the presence of vetiver and elemi in ESP; compared to nutmeg, heavier vanilla, and what I think must be sandalwood in PMP.

The difference, then, to use an analogy, is like visiting a stately home: PMP is what you smell indoors, the result of well-cared for interiors. ESP is a walk in the grounds, more outdoorsy and rougher, in the spirit of that "dirty citrus" that we read so much about. Both have excellent duration and sillage, but all in all, right now I am favouring Eau Sauvage for its all-round excellence and clarity of accord. Very versatile and a mark of good taste (if I say so myself).

Here is a fragrance I don't ever see becoming dated or redundant and to me this could well be a masterpiece. Firstly the smell itself is citric, neo classical, almost botanical, with a good dose of vetiver in the dry down. Dior have taken an old idea and modernised it. The added note of elemi has elevated things and kept it a sort of fresh mix closer to the original eau sauvage, modern yet classical and grown up and mature. I personally find this version more fresh and wearable year round but the old mix should never be forgotten, especially as a winter/autumn scent. Longivity is fabulous ..a good whole day with plenty of projection. I asked my girlfriend what she thought and she really enjoys the dry down after the first half hour, and I agree..the vetiver never becomes too dry or cloying because of the elemi keeping it moist and slightly sweet. This is a real gift for the 30+ plus crowd from dior and demachy, dior have done it again.. like so many times before they have proven that you don't have to pay stupid money for elegance and creativity.

A nice green citrus. Not a million miles from the original Eau Sauvage but with much better performance. I'm at the stage now where I own in excess of 75 full bottles so I really have to be blown away to warrant a purchase. While this is good, it's not great.

Absolute masterpiece . Smells very similiar to the 2012 Version but is more fresh and versatile than the vintage version. Demachy smoothed out the notes to make it more mass appealing. The longevity is still very good 10-12 hours on my skin.

This fragrance is actually true to it's name, and actually resembles the original Eau Sauvage EDT, in a Parfum concentration.

Congratulations to Francois Demachy, and Dior, on constructing a well executed omage to the original legend.

Excellent longevity, with moderate sillage.

Amazingly, Demachy has managed to make this 2017 version smell like both the 2012 version (with relentless, persistent myrrh) as well as smelling more true to the original "dirty" citrus of the iconic Eau Sauvage EDT.

More wearable, and versatile than the 2012 version, yet retaining many facets that make that fragrance so iconic.
This is a fragrance with depth, and character.

Congratulations, Dior, on your first quality fragrance in some time. Keep it up, please.
