    Have a bottle of both. The EDT gets more use.

    Parfum is better IMO.
    The 2 are completely different.
    There is a lot of hate aimed at the name of the Parfum, yet the haters don't do a review of the fragrance itself. It's a pity so many people can't get passed the use of the name Sauvage in the Parfum.

    I've tried both. I prefer the Parfum. Lasts a lot longer and projects better. The original Eau Sauvage is also nice, just not as nice.

    There is some truth to what you are referring to, but in my case I not only have a great deal of disdain for Dior trying to tie a pretty much completely different scent to the classic that earned its place in history... but I *also* disliked the Parfum if viewed as a completely different scent entirely due to its cloying combination of wintergreen laced vetiver and myrrh. To me it just added insult to injury by Dior naming it after the classic Eau Sauvage. Each to their own though...

    The original is a masterpiece with an average drydown, the new one is a simple but overall great scent.
    The poll is getting hot, 6-6.
    We want a niche forum.

    The original never amounted to anything on my skin. The parfum on the other hand seems to have been made for me and is in my top ten favorites now.

    I'm surprised at the results of the poll at least up to now. I love the original and I think it's much more versatile. If I must choose I go with that but the Parfum is good too.

    They're completely different than each other and the EDT is a matepiece that Dior will hardly ever be able to achieve again.
    This is one of the few cases where it becoming a skin scent doesn't bother me. It's still worth it.

    I think Fahrenheit, Dior Homme, and Dior Homme Intense are flat out masterpieces. I think Dior knows how to deliver the good stuff.

    If I could, I'd choose both, but failing that, the EDP, simply because the notes I know and love are being further heightened.

    I'm suprised the Parfum is winning this poll! I like it....but does it really beat the classic?

    Parfum! It's more complex with an amazing drydown.

    To me, these are totally different scents even though they share the "Eau Sauvage" name. Something in the parfum version bugs me, so I can't wear it (I'm guessing it's whatever vetiver they're using).

    I love the original Eau Sauvage, but I can't wear that one either. It has a classic Don Draper vibe that doesn't suit me at all. But it's really good.

    Looking forward to trying the EDT. My instinct is if available, go with the edt over an edp--less is more I believe.

    The EDP, the original might be more complex but its performance is atrocious.

    Old thread, but the discussion is still relevant. As mentioned, they are completely different and hard to compare. I like the Parfum better. I don't get on with that old school/classic oak moss drydown. The citrus opening is timeless.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
