    Default What is the Advantage of Sauvage Over Prada Luna Rossa Carbon?

    Seems like in every reviews and comments, they would choose Carbon. They would say it is more refined, polished, classy version of Sauvage. So was wondering if you guys think Sauvage got an advantage over Carbon or even if someone likes it better.

    Sauvage is unapologetic, the original, and from Dior. However, none of that really matters. The main thing that matters is whether you like the smell. I don't mind copycats since it ultimately helps consumers if we don't have one brand monopolizing one idea.

    Sauvage EDT lasts longer on my skin. Between the two, I prefer the sillage of Sauvage as well.

    If having to choose and recommend only one among these, Sauvage would likely stand out and would rate as better strictly in terms of performance

    Projection and smell are nicer on the Dior Sauvage.

    I prefer Sauvage by far. Smells and performs better to me.

    I don't really see these as all that similar. I prefer Carbon, but I don't really think they're very much alike.

    Prada Luna Rossa Carbon is a failed attempt to imitate Dior Sauvage and nothing more. Neither the aroma is better nor the performance. But the price is lower. So you get exactly what you pay for.

    Longevity is on the Dior side.

    My sample of Carbon is pretty good. I need to get a Sauvage sample to compare. What's the major difference between Carbon and Sauvage in terms of their most prominent notes? Unfortunately, I'm bad at note identification so I can't pick out any of Carbon's specific notes. The only things I get from Carbon are that it's definitely masculine but is perhaps too designer-ish for me. Although I'm a frag novice, I find most standard designer scents boring (not including prive lines and their ilk).

    Sauvage smells better, lasts longer, projects more.
    I smell.

    Sauvage is louder, younger, more in-your-face.

    If you're looking to fit in at a party, Sauvage is better.

    Carbon is more lavender, smoother, quieter.

    If you're in an office, Carbon is better.

    Sauvage is more modern and masculine, Carbon is more gentlemanly and gives a nod to the past, yet they both share that famous base which will define this era.

    I own both and wear them about equally
