    Default Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum?

    Any fans of this on here? I honestly don't know anything about it. I was hoping it would be a richer, softer, denser, sweeter version of the original.. maybe with some creamy vanilla or something.. you know, kind of like how Dior seem to release their "Parfum" variants. If you think of say, Fahrenheit or say the new Sauvage Parfum. I figured that might have been a nice way to go about the Eau Sauvage Parfum. But from the notes it doesn't really seem to be anything like that.. I just have the original Eau Sauvage.. but I was thinking of buying a bottle of this too. I believe there's a new 2017 version out. Any fans of this fragrance? Is it anything liek what I was expecting?

    I have the 2017 version and like it a lot. I think it is great. It is sweet and fresh and aromatic all at the same time. I find it very addictive.

    It is closer to the original EDT than the previous ESP, though I would say they are still quite different scents. It is deeper and sweeter than the EDT IMO. It does not have the jasmine note of the EDT. It is overall more resinous rather than citrus-herbal.

    Although there is no vanilla in the EDP, I have always considered it to have an almost creaminess quality in there but it is hanging around behind the woody, resinous freshness.

    Hope this helps.

    I only have the 2012 version and have not smelled the 2017 juice yet.

    Richer? Absolutely.
    Softer? Maybe, not really, but I don't find much sharpness or edge to the original Eau Sauvage EDT either.
    Denser? Hell yes. Thick as all get out. Nuclear. One spray is almost enough for me, and two sprays is almost too much.
    Sweeter? Yes IMO, not in a gourmand way, but the resinous myrrh comes off as somewhat sweet to me.
    Version of the original? I have to sniff pretty deep to get the connection to the original. It's there, but they are quite different.
    Creamy vanilla? Nope.

    Grabbed a 2012 bottle before vanishing from the usual sources. While it's old school for me, I found I really am not a huge fan of its myrrh, and perhaps myrrhs in general. I like the original EdT composition better; 2012 EdP is all thick base notes.

    Didn't do a 2012 vs. 2017 head-to-head, as I just didn't like the 2017 at all.

    I love both versions. If you're wanting something closer to the original EDT the 2017 version is the way to go. You can really smell the citrus throughout the development of the fragrance. When you get to the base, the vetiver and elemi take over.
    Whereas the 2012 version is cold weather only (for me anyway) the 2017 version could be a year round signature scent. It's absolutely fantastic stuff. The best new release of 2017 that I got my nose on, hands down.

    The 2017 Version smells halfway between the original EDT and the 2012 parfum Version. It smells absolutely amazing and it’s in my top 5

    I had the 2012-2015 version it was nice and very strong like DHP, I enjoyed it but decided it was not something I’d wear a lot. It’s definitely worth having a bottle though, I haven’t tried the new 2017 version want to eventually right now I’m enjoying my DHP plan to have that in regular rotation.

    I haven't smelled the 2017, but i have the original version and love it. It's powerful stuff. Only 2-3 sprays are necessary.

    As everyone's said, it's mainly about the myrrh. It's one of my favorites for cold weather.

    Don't know why they named it after Eau Sauvage. It really has it's own smell, IMO.

    Eau Sauvage EDT was my first bottle in 1968. Glorious stuff, Lemon , Rosemary, Jasmine freshness on top of a Pillow of Oakmoss and possibly a touch of Vetiver.
    By the Early 90's it has been touched with Calone which gives it an airiness, however decreases the importance of the the Hedione. Oakmoss is negligible. Mid 2000's Demachy adds a 90's Cuir imitate. Some find it touches back to the original. For me, the EDT is done.
    2012 EDP is presented. At first I found a Vanilla overload. Perhaps a mild reform or maceration my second try I loved it. A replacement for the original? No.
    It stands on it's own as a sweetened purring Myrrh with a "Root Beer" or "Pepsin" note. Remarkable, distinctive scent.
    I look forward to nosing the 2017 release.
    Scarcity is an illusion. Unlearn it.

    Yes! I see where you're coming from with the root beer note. I've always noticed that smell, but it's so vague, I couldn't describe it.

    I now own both the 2012 and the 2017. I find them very similar. Both smell fabulous. The 2017 may smell a tad bit lighter with a touch more citrus, but honestly, it's a stretch to say I see much difference at all.

    I first tried the 2012 about 2 months ago and it was the 1st perfume that I bought right after the 1st try, and the store actually had one last 200ml bottle! after that I started hunting for what ever is left of this jewel. I did give the 2017 a try maybe once or twice and true that it carries a great resemblance to the previous formula but a lot more freshness at the beginning.

    Can anyone comment on how 2017 performs compared to 2012.

    2012 Version 10-12 hours
    2017 Version 8-10 hours

    I love both and they are very similar with the new version being slightly more versatile. A top 5 scent for me

    I'll probably never have a single signature scent. But if I had to choose one, either version of Eau Sauvage Parfum would be in the running. They're that good. Such a unique smell.

    I have a bottle of the 2012 formula and I love it.

    Lasts until scrubbed; strong, but it doesn't project far. Even if you spray too much, anyone who gets close enough to notice won't mind. Doesn't matter which season.

    I prefer the 2017 Parfum to the 2012 for that Citron thing. It's beautifully round and interesting, especially compared to most designer offerings. Lasts comfortably on my skin and ticks boxes for formal/semi-formal occasions alike. Winner.

    You may be underestimating the power of this one. I got into it first and then got my Dad into it, and you can smell it around whenever I was at his house with him doing like.. 2-3 sprays.

    2017 is just fine! I sold mine as I'd prefer to have the 2012, and it's not too late to re-acquire the 2017 before any other reform may happen. Maybe a bit brighter, more citric, but good lasting power, .

    I have the Eau Sauvage EDT and the new 2017 Eau Sauvage Parfum. I haven't given the EDT much of a spin yet, but on my initial use it's of course a lighter fragrance that leads with a fresh lemon note. It's gentler than the Parfum with more modest sillage and longevity. Suitable for the office, for sure. I quite like the Parfum, which to me is much bigger. The elemi is strong here, and it has an overall green accord to it, with the elemi and vetiver leaning bright and fresh.

    I agree that the ESP from 2012 has the Rootbeer note which is unique and enjoyable. Is that the Myrrh? Lasts several hours.

    I've never associated Myrrh with root beer, but now that y'all mention it, I can see that! Yes, it's the myrrh in there that gives it that smell, though not sure what else/combination is contributing to it. Perhaps hedione? The edt has a 'cola' thing going on to me, could be the hedione(mixed with myrrh). and there's likely a touch of vanilla in this EDP as well(even if we can't smell it directly, it's used in many edp's).

    And I agree with Chuck- this stuff is definitely signature scent material. It's a 10/10 frag, imho.

    Have been wearing this again for the past three days (2017 vintage).

    It is a truly different, fantastic scent.

    Polished, sophisticated and unlike anything else on the market. For the mature man. 40 plus.

    It's a beauty, I have to agree. And I think both versions work in the heat too, they don't seem to be as heavy in the heat as in the cold on my skin. Of course, it might be relative to the temperatures we have here although I wore the 2012 ESP the other day in 30 degree Celsius and it was a pleasure. I've got 500ml of back up of this for a reason!

    Yeah, I find that it's more about village than projection for me with the 2012 ESP although it seems to project more when it's very cold - almost pulses off me in the same way that a couple of other do in cold weather, like HdP Fidelis and DHI.

    I've got the 2017 version too and it's very good but for me, not in the same league as the 2012.

    I bought a decant of the earlier version of the parfum and it smelled like grilled corn to me. I liked grilled corn at a cookout, but I'm not sure I want to wear it as a fragrance.
