    Default Thoughts on Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum

    I was wearing Eau Sauvage Parfum today, for the first time

    Kind of realised that it doesn't feel like a flanker to the citrusy Eau Sauvage.

    Parfum is a completely different beast. It feels like a night scent, with a fair amount of Myrhh. I like it, yes.

    But this could've been a brand new scent than a flanker.

    What do you experts think?

    I like it, would agree that it is nothing like Eau Sauvage and is heavy on the Myrhh

    While no expert, enjoying this enough to add it to the personal fragrance collection sometime in future.

    Although sensing a few similarities with the initial Eau Sauvage, with or without the myrrh, it is a great EDP with maturity, complexity and richness and even befits the name of another flanker, Fraicheur Cuir a bit, as it does have marginal hints of pleasant leather and spice during the final phases of skin development.

    A very well-crafted modern take on Eau Sauvage EDT, while also consistent with a certain timeless, classic elegance as well, yet versatile enough to suit both formal and less formal, more daytime and more evening wear.

    Im still on the fence about this one, something about it is really powdery, and Im not sure how I feel about it. I do enjoy the resinous aspects, however.

    Man Myrrh.

    A wink to the past Eau Sauvage with the bergamot that goes for quite a while.
    Its mostly a deep, dark combination of sweet myrrh bordering on oppoponax and a sparkling, licorice like vetiver note similar to the original Dior Homme.

    I think its excellent, and I have the original yellow colored liquid bottles from 2012 and 2013. The newer stuff is green, I dont know if it smells any different.

    Love the Parfum but agree that it's different than the original EDT which I also love.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Yes, it could have been released as a non-flanker.

    My guess they didn't do it is because it's somewhat unconventional in terms of its scent profile to be a mainstream non-flanker release in these bad times.

    Some days I love it, some days it feels a little too synthetic.

    Terrific longevity.

    They are different to my nose. I get a tiger balm smell in the old version. They new version I don't smell that and feels more modern.

    Amazing designer, could easily fit in a Roja Dove / Xerjoff bottle.

    Price / quality ratio is excellent.

    Performance is beastly though, almost too much.

    Not the most versatile fragrance, like most masterpieces.

    Love it! I want to buy it but have other things higher on the list at the moment. It would be my clean professional sophisticated scent.

    In my opinion, it is a 'hidden gem'.

    I agree. Similarities are minimal and it could easily have stood on its own as a separate scent. I love it, although it's so rich and potent I can't wear it in the heat.
    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.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I am not a fan of Eau Sauvage EDT, but I sniffed that one in Sephora many times, hoping to warm up to it.

    When I smelled the Parfum, I really, really thought there was some kind of weak similarity to the EDT - some kind of homage. However, the differences were so strong, it not only seemed like something that could have been branded separately - it was an immediate buy.

    An interesting twist on the colors, however. I bought my bottle almost the day this first came out. The code on my bottle indicates January 2012 date of manufacture. And yet, it's green - just like the bottle on the left in the picture. Always has been greenish, just like that, or maybe a bit more green when I first bought it.

    The recent Eau Sauvage edt is disappointing in comparison to the original as it lost some of it growl over time. A perfect Eau Sauvage perfume version was created by Xerjoff in the fragrance "Fiero" which smells very much like original Eau Sauvage only more intense. Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum could have been named differently as they intensified the top notes with myrrh and changed it to remove the contrast and balance with stronger and greener top notes. Its a fine scent, but Xerjoff Fiero is what Eau Sauvage Parfum might have been, imo.
