    Default Dior Sauvage EDT 200ml (Feb 2019 batch) performance

    Hey everyone,

    I purchased yesterday 200ml Dior Sauvage EDT (Feb2019 batch), I applied around 3 to 4 sprays on my neck and behind ears, but after 5 min i don't even feel that i applied any fragrance. I am so disappointed as I didn't found it as people say about its projection. I smell it if i bring my nose close to the area where i applied if i apply on wrist.

    I have attached the pictures as this bottle is undoubtedly genuine.

    I dont know whether this is nose blindness or the sauvage edt is no more the same as it used to be.

    It's nose blindness. Spraying that many sprays that close to your nose will result in olfactory fatigue. I also doubt that Dior would reformulate Suavage this soon after its release.

    This most likely

    Also I often find brand new bottles take a little time to settle ( dunno - change sin temperature during transit etc)

    +1 Apply far away fromnose/face ))

    Take a break and come back to it in a few days

    Where did you buy this from? It's either nose blindness or a bad/phony bottle.

    I have 200 ml bottle. bottle from December 2017 (it is claimed that this is the last batch before it was reformulated).
    The durability of my skin is exceptional 12 hours, maybe more, but a shower follows. The projection lasts at least 4 hours, during which time the aroma literally covers everyone around, a very cheeky, intrusive presence. I also have a 100 ml bottle from 2019, but although the box says the same formula, in practice, the aroma is different. It feels sweeter notes, durability and projection are weaker.

    Most likely.

    people say that dior sauvage have synthetic ingredients not natural thats why there is no question of reformulation. but as you say that there is difference between 2017 and 2019 juice... it means something is fishy. they definitely reformulated. but what can we do... 2017 and older batches are not anymore in the outlets. will spray more than 4 times then for more good performance.

    Don't listen to what people are saying, just compare the two editions of the perfume, and you will find out for yourself what the difference is.
    Synthetic ingredients also cost money. Modern perfumery is built of synthetics.

    Nose blindeness, nose fatigue, desensitization is likely the case. Sauvage tends to perform quite well as I've smelled it off of others quite often.

    Spray your clothes also maybe your skin doesn’t agree with Dior Sauvage EDT it happens, 2-3 sprays on your shirt should be fine.

    Fake. It even came with a dead bee in the cap.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Has it improved any for you, if not return it and get the EDP it has more depth imo and smells nicer. There is word is has been tweaked (reformulated) since original 2015 release. Unless it’s working for you now in that case enjoy it!

    Yes sounded like over-spraying was the issue. I wouldn't expect a 200ml size bottle to be a fake. Too much work involved for the forger!
    How many sprays did you go with in the end?

    Don't wear it for two weeks. Instead, give the sprayer a good sniff once a day. That will help with nose blindness.

    So far never experienced this particular situation with Sauvage (including in EDT concentration and including the one from 2019) but will have to retest this again and notice if the problem persists and/or shows up in the first place.
    At any rate, so far would qualify this fragrance among the ones where performance is one of its more consistently good and impressive aspects, thus would rather agree with the possibility of olfactory fatigue (even at the risk of being likely wrong, due to being maybe too personal/subjective).
