    Default Love Eau Suavage EDT but it doesnt last, any flankers that give the same scent with more strength?

    Was looking at Eau Suavage Extreme or Parfum 17. I have a splash sample of vintage extreme and it could be because the application but it seems just as fleeting as the original EDT. Anyway, any suggestions or is what I'm looking for best found with sticking with the original. Thanks.

    How many sprays do you apply?

    Do you apply an unscented moisturizing lotion to your skin prior to applying the fragrance? That might help.

    I have the Parfum 17 and it is very strong, goes for over 8 hours. I think the EDT is stronger than a lot of folks say here. It just doesn't project as much as my Parfum.

    How does the smell of 17 and EDT compare?

    The nature of a citrus aromatic is that it isn't going to last forever.

    Admittedly I have not tried the EdP flankers (2012 & 2017). I have sought them and they are hard to find and/or pricey.

    While everything I read seems to indicate they are very well regarded scents, they seem to stray a fair amount from the scent of the original EdT.
    The notes profiles are certainly different.

    I'll let others with more direct experience shout me down or offer more insight into how close the perfume versions come to the actual scent of the EdT.

    Everything I read seems to indicate they are tangentially related to EAU SAUVAGE EdT.

    Use the original, but go with 25 sprays.

    I had the same problem, and it was solved when I used 25-35 sprays.

    Dior Eau Sauvage Extreme and Eau Sauvage Parfum are two very different fragrances.

    My preference would be for the Extreme, but people's tastes vary.

    Seconding indeed Parfum and Extreme as very good options for improved performance and also adding (if still available) the Fraicheur Cuir flanker

    In simplest of terms, it's just a bit darker. But it's not a dark scent. The original DNA is still there though.

    If you love Eau Sauvage then just get that. Wear a lot of sprays.

    Try to get your hands on a bottle of Brooks Brothers New York Gentleman for Him Eau de Toilette. Very similar concept and effect, better lasting power.

    You think BB New York Gentleman has better longevity than Eau Sauvage EDT?? I'm surprised to hear that. I have had quite the opposite experience with the times I've worn it.

    Can't comment on longevity, but certainly projects a bit better (while still being a 'soft' scent).

    This is mainly what I remember, so I’m kind of assuming the longevity is better as well. Suppose I could be wrong though.

    I like BB NYG, but find both longevity and projection subpar. I'm glad you guys don't have that experience. I wanted to like it more than the results I got.

    Which formulation/bottle design did you get? I'm familiar with this one -



    Actually I got a 30 ml of this bottle from Buysblind sometime in 2015.

    Ah okay, I think that one came out later (this was discontinued around 2015, then re-released a couple of years later which I think is the one you're referring to, and it seems to have been discontinued again). I haven't tried it, so can't comment.

    I would vote for either 2017 or 2012 for a longer lasting experience. The dry down is where it's at with these parfums.
