    Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior

    I've tried it many times, both vintage and new. They are different, of course, but the net effect is always the same... a 'dark' variation of the basic cologne concept, ala 4711.

    Now, I like lemony colognes, but aren't there a million of 'em out there? And cheaper, too?

    Well, maybe that's true, and maybe it's partly because Eau Sauvage was the first to elevate the wonder of lemon in a masculine fragrance before so many other followed along. There's been a lot of 'eau' under the bridge since 1966.

    Eau Sauvage is good, but no longer great.
