    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.

    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.

    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.

    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??

    I tested this the other day. It has been in Texas for a about a week. I was dissappointed only in the sense that I was hoping for a stronger version of the original, but I actually liked the frangrance. I always find it confusing when a house issues new products using the name of older established successes.

    I've had this for a week or so. I've never tried the tea biscuits referenced, so I can't comment there. However what I do get in the base is a slightly sweet, slightly powdery, almost barbershop kind of scent. It's funny, because in my review, I wrote that this has as much in common with Eau Savage as Fahrenheit has with Fahrenheit Absolute. The irony in that statement is that now that I think about it, the base in Eau Savage Parfum is somewhat similar to the base in Fahrenheit Absolute. The myrrh is the major player in both fragrances, at least in the base. Obviously ESP doesn't have oud in it like FA does, but they are sort of distant cousins. I happen to like FA, and I also like ESP quite a bit. I've worn nothing else for a week, and I'm not sick of it at all.

    This is available in Sephora in the US for $85 for 100ml.

    Well, I do find that it shares its DNA with the original ES EDT.

    What has been achieved here is unique, not sure I like it. It smells like 2 fragrances layered together, Eau Sauvage with fougère clothes. It smells good but goes in 2 opposite directions at the same time: the classic, undomesticated, lemony and bitter (chypre) eau de cologne (the original Eau Sauvage) plus the urban, poised and well behaved office fougère. A sort of frankenscent.

    I agree. The ES pedigree is there throughout its performance. But it’s Eau Sauvage in a romantic, rather than preppy, mode. Eau Sauvage marries Dior Homme. The opening is brilliantly fresh - the trademark citrus brightened further with ramped up greens. There’s an undercurrent of sweet Diorella here that signals its intentions. Once dry down begins, what others are calling its “bisquite” note I’m reading as Dior Homme’s lipstick. That’s how it performs on my skin - a more refined ES slowly, ineluctably, moving toward Dior Homme, where it lingers for some time before moving on to the base and where the grass returns. Yes, it’s beautiful, and like the original smells like nothing else.

    $85. at Sephora.

    I tested it all today and I have to agree with the perfumery shop owner, I didn't enjoy it either. I usually like myrrhe (similar to note in fahrenheit absolute) but this do smell like biscuit.

    Default Re: Eau Sauvage Parfum - Frighteningly Beautiful !!!!!

    I tried it today - am I am so disappointed. Just another flat sweet, somewhat musty smell. Where is the freshness, the elegance, the chic of French perfumery? After they changed and castrated the original Eau Sauvage to death so that it has no impact and no balls any more, LVMH really have the courage to put this weakling on the market - I can't believe it. What has the world come to? France is no longer what it used to be, hélas! (The bottle and the green colour of the juice are beautiful, though, and longevity is awesome - much too long for my taste.)

    Aeons better in my opinion are Terre d'Hermès parfum and the eternal classic Knize Ten. What a difference! TdH is wonderful and classy but a wee bit too quiet. Knize, on the other hand, is glorious, mellow, generous, unparalleled, a gent's smell.

    The "cumin-ish" note is the oud, no? Or are you talking about something in addition to the oud? Either way, ESP doesn't have that note.

    I have tested E.S.Parfum and Eau Noire parallel and find a lot of similarities between them. The drydown of ESP has more of a lime trace and the drydown of EN has more of a vanilla trace.

    I tried this yesterday in sephora and actually was surprised that I liked it. I don't like the original in the slightest and I smelled very little similarity between the two. I guess maybe it's there is the base or something but I never got past the first sniff of the original to know what it's like when it gets past the opening. Got a sample and will be test driving it some time this week. Kept the paper sample all day and loved every stage of it.

    I picked up a sample at my local Sephora yesterday,, as I've been a fan of the Original and the Extreme for years. I actually really do like this, but I don't think it needed to be called Eau Sauvage at all. I think being a Dior fragrance, it would have merited a new name.

    I agree with the above poster, it does smell to an extent, that Eau Sauvage and Dior Homme had been married and created this fragrance. I was never a large fan of the Dior Homme, but I rather like this as I put it on today and wore it. After 12 hours I still am getting whiffs here and there, whereas the original Eau Sauvage was gone within a few hours...

    I really was hoping for a long lasting 'back to the original' Eau Sauvage to be honest.. But I like this.

    Tried it last night at Duty Free, and I have to agree, 'frankenscent' is what this is.

    You get that trendy lime/mojito accord up top, with lots of herbal greenery, then it smells like a classic, late-70s aromatic fougère, and then, for some reason, a giant, lumbering vetiver base takes center stage - sort of like the one used in Terre de Hermes; this morning I'm smelling a slightly oriental myrrh.

    Confused yet? I am.

    I don't get the Eau Noire connection at all, or any connection to the original ES. It smells a bit like the last 40 years of men's fragrance trends all rolled up into one. The only thing missing is oud.

    The materials used smell very good.

    I think it would be nice if more guys wore this than the usual Sephora trash, but this is nothing I'm going to run out and buy.

    Could make a great shower gel.
