    Exclamation Eau Sauvage Parfum - Frighteningly Beautiful !!!!!

    This has just been released here in France.
    I hope my description of it will be of some help to you.

    First and foremost, THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH EAU SAUVAGE. NOTHING.
    When you first spray it you will get a five second blast of something incredibly beautiful and vaguely reminiscent of Eau Sauvage, but this gone before you even have time to make a comparison.
    This is a beautiful,beautiful juice...........but Dior got the marketing totally wrong !!!
    This should have been launched as part of their boutique series of colognes.
    This is the twin brother of Eau Noire....although this is not similar to Eau Noire, it shares the same simple structure as E.N. and the same fantanstic silliage and longtivity, (2 sprays/72 hours/2 showers and still detectable on my forearm !)
    The strong dominant, but very smooth myrrhe note contains a weird vibe which I can only describe as a " McVitie´s rich tea biscuit/ digestive biscuit" note, that actually works much better than it sounds. After the initial, shocking transformation of this extrait it remains very constant and unchanging in the same way that Eau Noire does. Although different from E. N., this is very compatible, and I am sure could be easily blended and layered with E.N. and the other colognes from the boutique series.
    Although shocked by my initial experiences with Eau Sauvage Parfum I am now very much in love with this beautiful creation.

    Great now I have another fragrance on my "to sniff" list. With that kind of longevity, it might well shift to my "to buy" list as well! Thanks for the review

    The accord is for my nose quite dominant and consistent throughout, although I would not describe it as vanilla cookie - just cookie. Some people may not even make the "rich tea biscuit" connection. I do also get a sweet rubber vibe from the myrrhe.

    I´m sure that anyone who is a fan of Eau Noire will love this incredible "potion". It has the same distinctive sweet herbal qualities as E.N.
    ........but I think fans of the classic Eau Sauvage will be bitterly disappointed.

    Hmm, hmm? I am so curious ... next thing is to start looking for a review with google. This could be another suitable men fragrance for women. You got me curious with the biscotte-vanilla aroma ...

    Interesting. But, you compare it to Eau Noire.
    I hope ES doesn't have the nasty immortelle
    note as EN does?! Please tell me it doesn't!

    Nice to read some positive reviews on this. I've had my bottle since yesterday and I've already gotten a compliment. I just hope is stays around for a while. I get turned off by scents that are meant to disappear one day. It makes me not want to get attached to them.

    I immediately did a google shopping search for it, and found no results. Where can it be found for sale online?

    Dior.com will start selling it at the end of this month. Meantime you can go on their website and enter your email address so that they can alert you the minute it happens.

    Saw this at my local Sephora today by surprise. $84 for the 3.4oz and I was so tempted to blind buy. But I held off and instead just bought one frag. In hindsight, maybe I should've gotten it??

    Interested, is Oak Moss (Evernia Prunastri) listed on the box? Just curious...

    I'm a bit shocked to be honest! You have McVitie's rich tea biscuits in France??
