    Default Sauvage 2018 Reformulation?

    Hey guys I’m pretty new to colognes, perfumes etc and was wondering has Dior Sauvage been reformulated, I picked up a bottle which has a 2018 batch code and it seems to last quite a white but others can’t smell it when I ask in school am I not applying enough for it to project or has it really been watered down to decrease its Sillage? Any advice for spraying it would be awesome.

    Thanks

    Do you moisturize with an unscented lotion prior to applying the fragrance? That might help.

    Would Nivea cream work?

    It can all be speculation but considering the fact that Dior does reformulate their scents from time to time I wouldn't be surprised if Sauvage has met the same fate.

    The thing with some of the aroma chemicals in Sauvage is that they are unpredictable. Sometimes they can seem fleeting, but really what could be happening is your nose gets fatigued and ceases to smell it. Your nose does this with other strong smells, you may notice, notably your own body odors and excrement. If you’re catching whiffs of it later, that would be my guess— that you and those near you are going nose blind to it. Try spraying it on your chest and forearms instead of your head and neck (proximity to your nose can increase this nose blind effect), and stick to two or three sprays instead of four. Then report back.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Considering it was only released in late 2015, I very much doubt there's been any reformulation. It sells well (too well, for my liking, but I digress..). And if it ain't broke, don't fix it seems to be a popular adage in perfume as well.
