    Default Basenotes Directory Genealogy Incorrect/Incomplete

    Hello everyone,

    I am new here but so far really enjoying this site. I just love it.

    However, I noticed that many of the fragrance genealogies are either incorrect or incomplete. This is based on information I got directly from the manufacturer.

    Examine the examples below:

    Basenotes Genealogy for Eau Sauvage (Christian Dior):

    Top Notes: Lemon, Rosemary
    Middle Notes: Petitgrain, Basil
    Base Notes: Vetiver

    Manufacturer’s Genealogy for Eau Sauvage (Christian Dior):

    Tope Notes: Basil oil, Bergamot oil, Cumin, Fruit Notes, Lemon,
    Middle Notes: Carnation, Coriander, Jasmin, Orris, Patchouli, Sandal,
    Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Oakmoss,

    If you know Eau Sauvage and have been wearing for years like I have, you will know it has no Vetiver (another favorite scent of mine).

    What gives?

    Not everything is perfect. Post this in the missing frags board or in the help with this site board. I'm sure Grant will look at it and make changes if necessary.

    Your example it's not good. If you check Dior's website you'll see the same notes for Eau Sauvage as those listed in the Basenotes directory...

    I am pretty sure Eau Savage does not have Cumin, Patchouli, Amber, Musk, or Oakmoss

    The manufacturer's notes are definitely the same as the Basenotes one (see http://www.dior.com/pcd/Internationa...mp;pLANG=enall)

    Where did you run across the other set?

    The second set is the one listed at Scent Direct. I questioned that one myself when I first saw it.
