This is a great concoction. I really hope they never dicontinue or re-formulate this one.
I flew out through Manchester Airport again a couple of days ago, and I didn't make the same mistake I made before - I got a 100ml bottle, for £54.
I've had a nice full wear of it now, and I think it's stunningly good. Apart from the citrus in the opening, it doesn't seem to have much in common at all with the rest of the line. Though I wonder if I'm detecting something a bit woody in it that reminds me of the drydown of the basic ES? Not sure. But I am sure I love it.
The only problem now is that my wife's brother here in Thailand (who shares my liking for fragrances) loves it too and doesn't want me to take it back to the UK - I guess I'll have to get another bottle next time and keep one in each country
How much is this outside of the Airport? I may not want to wait until my trip.
For what it's worth, the Dior website has this to say about the new Parfum and the original ES . . .
"This new composition emerges as a nocturnal signature fragrance with a pronounced citrus, woody and amber scent. Mysterious and sensual Myrrh combines with the virile potency of Haitian Vetiver to clothe the emblematic accord of Eau Sauvage."
I don't know about all that, but I like the smell of the old and the new.
Cheers . . . Wally
Another scent using an established name for a completely different fragrance. Confusing and showing a lack of creativity. And the attempts to benefit from an existing sales hit.
got back ups together with Eau Savage extreme are masterpieces!
The only thing I don't like about Eau Sauvage Parfum is that my wife and her brother also love it and keep having a spray - it'll be gone in no time at this rate!
Stock up while supply lasts. My bottle is gonna last me a long time as I don't wear it very often and if I do I use a maximum of two sprays.
by the time you can afford good speakers, you can't hear the difference
Harrods have 50ml for £48.50 I can't see the 100ml price but I would guess it around to be £60 odd.
Ok this is now available at cheapsmells.com to a very reasonable price in both 50ml.and 100ml.
Does anybody know where can I obtain a sample of this? I am not going to buy mixed-review smells blind anymore.
My bottle is with me in Thailand right now - I bought it at the airport on the way out, which was the only practical place I could get it. But now that Cheapsmells has it, I've ordered another bottle for the UK and I'll leave this one here.
This is now available in Debenhams stores in UK and Ireland at the Dior counter. I tried it for the first time today and I loved it. I'm not a massive fan of Eau Sauvage, but unlike others, I definitely detect some similarities between this and the original. This one though, is much heavier and more balmy. To my nose, it's like Eau Sauvage crossed with Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense. Beautiful stuff. I'll definitely be getting a bottle.
Just repurchased this. Gonna stick with two sprays and I think I'll like it better.
Absolutely. Less is more with this one! I'll be wearing this again this winter.
It's the only Eau Sauvage I like. Got a bottle of this one couple of weeks ago and really dig the myrrh in it.

I wish I reached for this more often. I always enjoy it, but I kind of forget about it. I will resolve to wear it this weekend.
