The legendary fresh masculine fragrance by Dior - Eau Sauvage from 1966, is re-interpreted and re-launched in spring of 2011 in stronger concentration - as Eau Sauvage Parfum.

This classic citrus - aromatic composition has been updated and enriched with mysterious accords of myrrh, together with dry and woody vetiver that emphasizes the masculine character of this fragrance. Its original creator is the famous perfumer Edmond Roudnitska, while the new edition is signed by the current in-house Dior perfumer, Francois Demachy. The revealed notes of the new composition are: bergamot on the top, myrrh resin in the heart and dry vetiver in the base.

Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum is available from mid-May 2012 as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

A dominating Myrrh fragrance from the start to the middle , very power full and some how different from the available lot...I really like the the opening but I love the dry down which very very musky and smoky to me....stunning fragrance with very good silage and longevity. Thumz up.

I was fortunate enough to be given a sample of this by member edge42. Maybe its the myrrh in this but something smells very familiar in this. The initial spray and 5 mins thereafter remind me of dsquared potion...not same, just reminds me of.
To me this smells like 70s porn. Raw and hairy. I need this in my life. Geez thanks edge42, I need another fragrance like another hole in the head. Just call me swiss cheese.

Scent is 9
Longevity is above average and as for projection, people you want to know you're wearing this will know. Top of my want list.

Agree with Kostas, that the opening strongly reminds of the equally beautiful Versace L'Homme but I would not call this a poor copy or a copy at all. Its just happens to remind us of Versace's masterpiece but this one takes another direction after the opening and also, it lasts longer in my opninion. Of superb quality and truly one of the best releases of this decade!

FINALLY found this after being in my want list for at least a year.For a strange reason i couldnt find this neither online or in local stores.As i was browsing online i found it and bought it ASAP.I was soooo hyped for this one as everyone seemed to praise this stuff...
The moment i first sprayed i was like ok this seems familiar.Its a more tamed and poor version of versace l'homme.The drydown though is totally different...
Pros:Really refined and quality ingredients,long lasting and really sophisticated
Cons:There is something really sharp that tingles my nose and its pretty annoying.Also a poor copy of versace l homme(mostly the opening).I expected to be more groundbreaking and unique...

Overall score: 7/10

I am absolutely amazed at this stuff. It smells incredible and lasts all day. This juice lingers like a cloud of beauty around you when you wear it. This is the top release in the men's fragrance game in a long time. Absolutely beautiful, classy scent that blows Encre Noir out of the water, both being dark vetivers IMO. I highly recommend this stuff. One of my favorites. A masterpiece in every sense of the word. Your significant other will love it too.

Francois Demachy the so called nose of dior loves to call new scents by keeping old names! this scent has nothing to so with the original eau sauvage! it's just a poor copy of the ebene by balmain! Francois Demachy he's a very untalented nose but he think he's great!!!!!
why calling this eau sauvage perfume?????

There are aspects of Eau Sauvage Parfum that I completely love (e.g. the incredibly good quality vetiver and the sparkling aspects during the opening) but, unfortunately, there are also several facets that I find thoroughly unpleasant. It basically shares the same marzipan quality already found in Dior's Eau Noire which, although I'm generally a big fan of immortelle, it's probably one of the very few helichrysum-centered fragrances I totally dislike. This facet is way toned down in Eau Sauvage Parfum but it is somehow still pretty remarkable together with some extra sweetness provided by the myrrh. All in all not a completely bad fragrance but way too far from matching my taste.

Sorry.

Contentious perfumes can generate some very long reviews....as this one has. The sparsity of ingredients and the sheer potency make this unlike anything else on the market. Dior has always liked to offer strong versions of its men's line without calling them EDPs as do some of the other exclusive lines. There was Fahrenheit Absolute and Parfum. Those had great projection as well, but were more approachable due to boozy vanilla in both. This "EDP"- and I use quotation marks because this is stronger than any edp or pure perfume or EO out there- is tough and manly. It approximates early versions of Piguet's Bandit in its brazen character. There are also some similar notes and a shared unforgiving quality. Eau Sauvage Parfum is geared toward an oud favoring market, as it is very heavy on the woods, but retains the original dryness that Eau Sauvage is known for. Her the dry quality is wood and grass, and a very strict Bergamot. No lemon or creamy qualities as seen in the original Eau Sauvage or the Higher line. This is some serious stuff, I will need to smell it on a man to fully appreciate it. On me, it is piercing and aggressive, definitely not a unisex scent.

A long lasting minimalist composition.Mostly sweet myrrh with noticeable vetyver but the bergamot is gone quick.Surprisingly there is some development for so few notes.Vaguley similar to Grey Vetiver I think but smoker.I enjoy it but haven't really decided if it's bottle worthy.
It is basically sweet smoke.

I immediately took a liking to ESP scent, which continued well into drydown. I almost could not stop myself from rolling up my sleeves and taking whiffs of it.
I immediately got a fresh pleasant citrus blast, yet there was no mistaking the woody balsamic myrrh ever so strong in the initial supporting role. Yet after 30-45 minutes, there is no doubt that myrrh is the star of the show. ESP may be labeled simple with only 3 notes, yet the notes deliver complex sensations throughout the evolution. The scent hits the sweet spot of being strong, yet not overwhelming.

Between the 1 and 2 hour point, I pick up some hints of powdery notes, but not enough to put into old lady territory. I never really picked up the vetiver notes,but got the feeling that it was there, giving the myrrh mixture the myriad of sensations of woody balsamic with some smokey qualities drifting in and out.
As for longevity, I just got 5 hours. I should mention that test conditions were suboptimal as I rolled up my long sleeve shirt for inner elbow spray, then rolled it down. Although 5 hours is pretty good for me, I suspect I'd get better longevity by spritzing on my open neck pulse points, or on a short sleeve shirt day. I'm adding "ESP" to my bucket list.

I've decided to write a review about this one later but I couldn't resist anymore!
This is one of the best releases in designer fragrances in years.
A masterpiece that the words are not enough to describe this beauty.
There are only three notes in this fragrance and I'm going to throw vanilla in it too which makes it four and all these four notes have stunning quality and masterfully blended together.
The opening is a great combination of all four notes but bergamot is prominent in the opening.
It's tart, fresh and bitter citrusy, but oily, resinous and dirty because of myrrh and also a little smoky and rooty because of vetiver.
There is a little sweet vanilla here too to wrap it up and give the scent more depth.
In the mid the citrusy bergamot note settles down and I can smell more myrrh and vetiver.
It's smoky, dirty, earthy and dark but a little fresh, sweet and sexy at the same time.
The vanilla note here smell like vanilla ice cream and give the scent a very sensual aroma.
The base is very close to the mid as far as the smell but it's a little more vanilla ice cream like sweet and a little less smoky.
Projection is awesome and longevity can easily pass 12 hours.
Some people say that this fragrance smell very mature and kind of dated but I don't agree with them at all.
This is not a casual fragrance for teenagers indeed, but if someone around 25 and up wants to smell like a real gentleman this is one of the best.

من در مورد این عطر زیاد شنیده بودم ولی زیاد برای تستش مصر نبودم تا اینکه یکی از دوستان خرید و من تستش کردم و طاقت نیاوردم بی تفاوت از کنارش رد بشن و چیزی در موردش ننویسم
این یه عطر شاهکار و بی نظیر و فوق العاده اس که شخصا از کیفیت ساخت عالی اش و بوی بسیار بالانس و بی نظیرش حسابی هیجان زده شدم
تو این عطر 3 تا رایحه ذکر شده ولی بوی وانیل هم به راحتی تو عطر قابل تشخیصه
همین 4 تا رایحه ساده چنان هنرمندانه با هم ترکیب شدن که یه کار بی نظیر و فوق العاده مردانه ازش ساختن
رایحه ابتدایی این عطر با بوی ترش مرکباتی و کمی تلخ ترنج شروع میشه که رایحه صمغ مر و وتیور و وانیل اونو همراهی میکنن
صمغ مر یه حس روغنی، صمغی و تاریک و سنگین به عطر میده و رایحه وتیور هم خاکی و کمی دودی اش میکنه و رایحه ملایم و کمی شیرین وانیل هم این 3 تا رایحه رو بسیار عالی با هم مچ و بالانس میکنه
با گذر زمان و تو رایحه میانی بوی شاداب و ترش و تلخ ترنج ملایمتر میشه و بوی صمغ مر و وتیور قویتر که باعث میشه بوی عطر تم بوی دودی تر و سنگین تری به خودش بگیره
بوی وانیل تو این عطر کیفیت بالا و شیرینی متعادل و حسی شبیه به بستنی وانیلی داره که بوی خیلی جذاب و سکسی به عطر میده
تو رایحه پایه هم بوی عطر شباهت زیادی به رایحه میانی داره منتها یه ذره بیشتر شیرین میشه و اون حس دودی و سنگین اش ملایمتر
پخش بوش عالیه و ماندگاریش به راحتی از مرز 12 ساعت میگذره
یه سری ها میگن بوش خیلی سنگین و مردونه اس و بدرد مردهای سن بالا میخوره
مسلما این عطر به درد یه نوجوان نمیخوره اما کسی که حدود 25 سال یا بالاتر باشه و دوست داشته باشه که یه عطر مردانه مدرن و در عین حال کلاسیک داشته باشه که از اون یه جنتلمن واقعی بسازه این عطر به طور حتم برازنده اشه و جزو بهترین هاست

I've worn this from a sample atomizer three times thus far. This smells absolutely amazing to me. It is very strong though. I feel that it would choke people out in a small space if you used a spray someplace on your body other than under your shirt.

It is sweet but the sweetness does not wear on me like the sweetness from Boss Bottled. I get wafts of the scent randomly throughout the day that are just amazing. I'd imagine that others near me must as well.

There is an aspect to it that feels a bit dated,... perhaps similarities to colognes I may have smelled growing up (I'm 39 currently). However, I feel it is very appropriate for my age and while I wouldn't consider it a scent for a teen or college aged male, I feel it would be appropriate for someone perhaps mid 20's or maybe from 30 on up.

It really may be the best smelling fragrance I've tested up to this point, but the intensity makes me question where I could wear this comfortably on a regular basis. To my nose it has a similar intensity to Terre D'Hermes (also very strong to me). I did wear one spray from the tiny sample atomizer under my shirt to work one day in zero degree weather and nobody said anything about it being too strong. Personally, I smelled it all day long. However, I heard the atomizer on a full bottle is "beast mode". If I'm interpreting that statement correctly in reference to an atomizer, I'd be a bit afraid of choking others out with a single spray.

Amazing scent though. When I first smell it I immediately am impressed and it seems like my body reacts and sort of relaxes for a second similarly to getting that first taste of a super high quality Cabernet Sauvignon or an outstanding Shiraz. This is the first scent that has done that to me... I plan on buying a full bottle at some point in the near future.

edit: I just bought a bottle. Love it.
edit2: I've worn this at least 10x now. Sometimes this turns somewhat sour on my skin. Sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, it is amazing. I'm not sure what causes it...

First off, this isn't a definitive review... Just my view. I have not smelled this fragrance for a few months but the impression it made on me has lasted. I love this fragrance because it just has that certain something that appeals to my tastes, and my tastes usually steer me away from a fragrance if it doesn't stir some sort of passion when smelling it. This is richer, darker and has more attitude than the original in my opinion. The original is a beautiful classic and I think it is a stunning fragrance anyway, just TOO citrus sharp for my PERSONAL taste, so this EDP is my preference. Overtly masculine and brooding, unapologetic and piercing(Heathcliff peering in through Cathy's window on the Moors). I cannot compare this to the much copied and pasted balmain fragrance but I do not have the experience or nasal repertoire to distinguish the difference.
Sorry.
And sorry again... I can't help retreating to an analogy now and then.
It is entirely understandable for a person to leap to the defence of a favoured scent but that does not mean there are notes or ingredients that simply don't have the same connotations or memories for younger noses.
I, for example, cannot explain why Dior Homme instantly reminds me of my grandfather who passed away years before the fragrance was released??? Nonetheless, memories flood into my head based on certain notes and although the fragrance does not suit me to wear it myself, it is precious to me.
That is why we get passionate about one fragrance whilst detesting another. Everyone is different and we can all learn from one another... Isn't that the idea of these forums?

Oh, I finally own it.

First of all - the bottle. Magnetic cap is done very well. Like the one in Bleu de Chanel, or even better.

Opening is absolutely lovely. Sparkling juicy citrus is yummy. Smells invigorating and uplifting. That fades away quite fast from my skin and changes into oriental bomb. At first I thought - am I wearing Giorgio for Men?! I swear I felt the patchouli -honey combo. But now I know it's the myrrhe. I think it's the heaviest myrrhe fragrance I know. Later the vetiver joins in, but it's different from the one e.g. from Encre Noire or Terre d'Hermes. It's dry yet green and gives the woodiness to the whole composition.

Projection is crazy. One spray on the neck and you're "done". Don't overspray! It's pure parfum to the fullest IMO. Longevity is crazy, out of this planet - about 16 hours on my skin. From the first shower after waking up untill the shower before going to bed!

Stunning and probably the best from the Dior brand for me.

Take a bow Mr.Demachy, you are a genius.

To me, This man has never given a bad fragrance. Of Course there are some debatable like the recent Dior Homme Eau (which i like a lot and is no way close to bad).

Coming back to the fragrance, WOW !! This is epitome of simplicity and sauve. Just three notes that will blow you away. It starts fresh and turns into a smokey and balmy fragrance. The Myrrh and vetiver are prominent players here. There is a subtle sweetness to it throughout the drydown (like an English tea biscuit).

Key factors - Do no overspray. All it takes is 2 sprays to last you 8+ hours with decent projection. It is suited for mature gentlemen above 30. Perfect for office setting and formal occasions.

The bottle is classic and the heavy magnetic cap is PERFECT (i expect magnetic cap in all the bottles now) Easy 9/10 from me.

In response to AndrewMoc's review below, I just wanted to point out for anyone wondering that I've never smelled so much as a hint of 'crisp black pepper' in ESP. Nor have I ever heard anyone else mention that note. I've worn this a lot, from several different bottles/samples and never gotten any pepper.

As for compliments, most fragrances go uncomplimented most of the time, even the very best, but that doesn't tell you anything about how you will enjoy the fragrance itself.

If you don't like pepper, don't let that scare you off because I'm not a fan of pepper either and Eau Sauvage Parfum is one of my top favorites.

This one was love then hate. I loved Eau Sauvage at first through sampling, rich myrrh, topped with vetiver and citrus. 3 notes I reall enjoy in fragrances. I simply could not spray enough of it on. I wore it out with confidence and hoped the women surrounding would take notice. But nothing, not one bite. I thought nothing of it and bought a full bottle anyway, since I still loved it.
The full 100ml bottle arrived and I sprayed it generously and went about my day. It wasn't until later that evening that one particular note stuck out that I could not endure. Its not listed in the note breakdown but it was pepper. Crisp black pepper and it flat out stunk. I still feel this way so I traded it off. Its sad since I really felt like the potential was there. Fortunately for me, I have yet to receive any compliment from it since sampling off what I had remaining and that helps me feel better about my decision to get rid of it.

I have a question about this one... It seems totally unavailable in my country to test, I can buy it blind though. I kinda like Terre d'Hermes, especially pre-reformulated one, I love Montale Red Vetyver. And I love perfumes that contain myrrhe. Is it possible that I'll like it?

Thanks for your responses.

Now this is what I call a modern day classic!

It starts of with a strong citrus that is slightly reminiscent of the the original sauvage. As a young guy in early 20s I personally never enjoyed the original. But I respect that the parfum flanker holds on to the original at the beginning, which kind of shows its pedigree.
After the intial half hour blast of bergamont, ESP starts to sweeten up with the myrrh, while still holding on to the slight citrus note.
After this the fragrance stays linear but complex.
The core of this is the myrrh, which is feels creamy yet smokey, which only adds to its smoothness.

To be honest I don't get much vetiver here. But Im guessing its not a bad thing considering how smooth ESP is. (P.s I love vetiver)

The longevity of this CITRUS BALM is amazing. 2 sprays and im sorted for 12hrs.
Projection is temperamental, I get a lot of compliments around arms length. Which is perfect because this is a proper cologne that I much rather keep it to myself ;)

Versatility is tricky. ESP is very elegent and macho. But it is also sweet. I personally think its good for any occasion just moderate the sprays. I like to use it whenvever I want to add on a bit more confidence. But this is a waste if you use it for casual occasions.

If I have one word to describe ESP, its SUAVE.
Since eau sauvage original is suave+age (old).

I bought it blind, 1st time I was a bit worried. Once the stuff starting drying down.... smooth sailings.

Great stuff.
10/10.

Instant classic!

I knew I had to have Eau Sauvage Parfum the second I smelled it. This scent blurs the lines between old and new because it smells like a classic that I just discovered, yet has this modern, effortless edginess to it at the same time. It's refined, but with an attitude... like I just pulled up to the valet of the nicest high-end restaurant in town on my cafe racer motorcycle, in a suit. Tasteful, but daring and provocative.

There's a reason 3 of my top 5 fragrances are from the Dior house, and Francois Demachy is a big part of that - he is an undeniable genius. Eau Sauvage Parfum represents the best of his latest work to me. Very rich and resinous with reminders of it's citrus roots in the original Eau Sauvage throughout, especially the top notes. The dry down continues to impress, with a smooth, intriguing smoky myrhh and vetiver base that goes on and on for the entire day.

I love this stuff so much it's threatening to dethrone my long-beloved Fahrenheit as my new signature scent. Wearing this just makes me feel cool, sexy and confident. And that's just fine with me! An instant classic to be sure.

MY RATING:

Scent 4/4
Longevity 2/2
Projection 2/2
Versatility 2/2

10/10 in every way possible

Always found original ES an 'old man' scent: too much of a citrus slap in the face!

I appreciate ES more now I'm older (31) but ESP is AMAZING!

Fresh bergamot (to keep u cool when u need to keep urs!l), the spicy and seductive myrr and the warm, dry vetiver in the base. This is a fantastic remix of the traditional citrus aromatic...

I love Dior scents - apparently they are one of the only perfume houses that still use natural ingedients? I wear fahrenheit casually, DHI for formal occasional and evenings...

ESP will be my smart goto - for work, meetings. I think it will be suitable all year - the citrus will keep things fresh in warmer weather and the vetiver will keep it warm and comforting in the cooler months.

Good projection and long lasting, as per majority of Dior scents!

A silky and smooth aura of myrrh will envelope you. As you walk the resinous vibe catches in the breeze and lifts the senses. Although powerful during initial blast it dries down closer to skin within the first hour. Radiates about arms length and lasts all day. Women are absolutely drawn to it.

Short review here based in a very fast trial: it felt at odds regarding the original ES. Someone said "Blobby", I say heavy, clinching to my skin like a leech for its notable longevity. Rather an oriental mixed with citric notes, very sweet, almost cloying.

As per the excellent reviews it got here as well as in other sites, it seems it is up to today's standards when it comes to power bombs: strong, screechy, noticeable, silage wise, uber long persistence. The other band are the ones in the soft/aquatic field: lame, unnoticeable, fleeting.

One way or another, there is something bothering me in both's synthetic feeling. Either one, when smelt I get a kick in the nostrils, not a bad thing per se, but in these instances, something annoying.

A pity they call it after Roudnitska's masterpiece, for it lacks all the understatement and finesse of the original.

Sorry guys for not joining the party,

When I saw the sum of three components and each component of a net could also be interesting for me to see the latest models of the series Eau Sauvage Parfum Francois Demachy What is planned?

When you test it, first starts citrus but you expect that everything changes so quickly it would be over and the smokey and a little creamy (low sweet)

Good

But I think it was not too specific


وقتی دیدم کلا از سه تا جزء تشکیل شده و در هر نُت هم یه جزء حضور داره برام جالب بود ببینم فرانسوا دیمِشی برای آخرین مدل از سری خاص دیور -یعنی اُ سواژ- چه کرده؟؟

وقتی تستش می کنی اولش کاملا سیتروسی شروع می شه اما توقع داری سریع همه چیز تغییر کنه که همینطور هم می شه و به مرور بوی دودی و بنظر من کمی هم خامه ای(کم شیرین)پیدا می کنه

خوب بود

اما بنظرم خیلی هم خاص نبود

While I'm not a big fan of the original Eau Sauvage (somehow it always ends up being too cloying for my taste), I sampled this in a local Sephora and found it very different. Very much improved! Smoother, richer, less citrusy and overall just more interesting and pleasant.

So far I'm really liking this one and have a decant on the way to try as this could very much be worthy of a full bottle.

Simplicity can be the model example of perfection and beauty, and this offering from Dior shows consumers and competitors alike how a simple formula can achieve sublime results, when constructed with tradition, passion, knowledge and high quality ingredients. The three pillars of this masterpiece play off each other in perfect harmony and synergy: bergamot essential oils keep it feeling classical and reminiscent of a traditional men's cologne; resinous myrrh give it a distinct texture, oily, balmy, luxurious, sultry in the right setting; and the vetiver adds smokiness, a raw masculine edge, whilst the dryness of wood is kept in check by the myrrh. A stunning composition, a powerful beautiful masterpiece and the total epitome of male class, elegance and understated sophistication. Francois Demachy is a genius. Bravo!

Eau Sauvage Parfum is quite unlike its effervescent citrus sibling from 1966… and quite unlike anything else for that matter.

Deep, balmy, soothing, this sensual fragrance taps right into the pleasure centres of my brain. It has wonderful longevity and projection, radiating a reassuring presence throughout the day.

Velvety, indulgent and utterly hedonistic - a couple of sprays should suffice to tame any wild savage.

I hate to spoil the party but I don't like it. With all my due respect to Dior and (especially) the original Eau Sauvage.
This one is a different, very different animal - dark, heavy, cloying, nearly suffocating. Far from my idea of a Dior perfume.
Tried it at Sephora, washed my wrist properly, applied one of my regular fragrances - but the ghost of ESP haunted me for about 20 hours. Never again!

@pronose, you don't like it, ok, you hate it, ok... that's fine, that's your opinion and we respect it. But, how many times are you planning to copy & paste the same comment about the same perfume?.
For me eau sauvage parfum is one of the most interesting releases for men in recent years.

I tested two spritz two days ago on my wrist/hand.
It's a classic scent which smells unique. You will recognize this juice once you used it. First citrus/bergamot then myrhh vetiver or whatever this "elder-statesmen" combination consists of that stays, as basenotes. I kind of like it but my wife said: Definetely no-go!
Problem is:
I still smell it today, EVEN two days later (including 2 times sport and two times showering and countless hand washings)
Will it EVER fade away?

On the blotter it smelled way too smoky for me, almost musty. I didn't get any sweetness. It actually smelled a little bitter to my nose.

my new favorite, is been awhile since a fragrance had such an impact on me but this is a masterpiece.is dark and sweet but not femenine at all, starts green with a faint hint of the original eau sauvage but then it turns into a dense scent that lasts all day on my skin.
love this fragrance and is my current number one.

All I know, is I started my fragrance obsession initially trying to find a perfume for my wife, I then thought to myself, I havent worn cologne since high school. I bought Eros, I liked it, I was happy with it.

Then I got opinions from here, there and everywhere and they were all saying Eros sucks. So my train of thought was, I LIKE Eros, if they think it sucks, that MUST mean there are some AMAZING frags on the market and I should keep looking.

I went to Sephora looking for a scent that had cinnamon in it, they sprayed a bunch of stuff on strips and I was thinking its all garbage to me, then I see this sort of luxurious green bottle, sitting there looking mysterious, "what is that" I asked, and they sprayed it on a strip, my jaw must have hit the floor and I wish I could have seen my facial expression because immediately upon my reaction, all the sales reps had to smell it, I took it home with me, there was simply no stopping it.

But I wasnt satisfied yet, I kept looking and seeking for the best fragrance, and this is where ES Parfum is bitter sweet for me, it was my second bottle of cologne purchased, and nothing can beat it, I spent way too much money trying to find something better, its not going to happen.

As for the fragrance itself, I didnt receive a compliment from a stranger since buying the bottle, for a LONG time, and the best part was, I simply didnt care, I sprayed it on and was perfectly content.

But somehow I needed to see if this stuff just smells good to me? So what did I do, I loaded up on it, I went crazy, sprayed too much on, it made my eyes water, this stuff is a 1 spray only and it smells PERFECTION, if you overapply this, you get menthol believe it or not, I read reviews here, and saw that people were comparing this to Tiger Balm? NO WAY, but overspray this, and they are 100% correct.

Anyways, this thing, for projection/longevity is also perfect, it lasts all day, and projects perfectly for the wearer, you want to smell nice, and you want to be able to smell yourself, that is perfect projection, who cares if anyone else smells it, as long as you can smell it yourself without trying.

If you want a 7 foot projection monster... this can do it too, you just have to overapply it, believe me, you will be smelled when you walk into a room.

This stuff is versitile as well, all occassion scent for me, and I just wear it every day.

this is "perfumery art". Its perfect. And I have never said that about any fragrance, because there are so many to pick from. But I know, in my lifetime, Ive smelled THOUSANDS of colognes/perfumes/scents...and this is as perfect as it gets.

how precious is it, to me?...well, my younger brother didnt do anything but reach for the bottle like he was going to sample some. And I grabbed his hand and bit it. Just to let him know, "try it again, and they'll be calling you "Johnny Nine Fingers".

Although the bitter sour bergamot is listed as top note, I don’t really get it to be honest. I get mostly bitter pungent myrrh right away. The myrrh lasts for quite a while until the woody smoky vetiver starts to join in. As it dries down, you’re left with just the vetiver. On my skin, it has pretty good staying power despite its moderate projection. Overall feel I get from this is bitter yet sweet, balmy and smoky. Perfect for business occasions. The scent gets 4 out of 5 from me. I like it!

Just fantanstic, a masterpiece. I have never been a fan of the original and its flankers after that but this is wonderfull... and I mean wonderfull. People here have already described the metamorphosis of the fragrance pretty well, am just here to say this could certainly go through as niche. Beautiful scent. Noted on my "to get" list, and its not that expensive either.

This is a great modern release from Dior. It pays sufficient homage to the original through the bergamot opening, yet quickly strays onto new territory with the slightly sweetened spiciness and warmth of the myrrh - balanced by the vetiver.

It's applications are truly versatile, being appropriate for the most formal of events; intimate encounters; as well as for daily use as a signature all year round fragrance (though it shines most in cooler weather).

You need to be very careful with the trigger. This is very powerful and long lasting but the tiniest overspray might abuse the strength of the myrrh, which could then turn aggressively 'tiger balmy' on you, potentially spoiling the wear.

Three words to sum up my impression of Dior's Eau Sauvage Parfum - Sophisticated. Intelligent. Dangerous.

Personal rating 8.5/10

I cant give a very good detailed description since I only smelled this one in Sephora but....cant remember how it opened up, I think a little bit of everything mixed up. The heart was definitely vetiver mixed with a smoky something. Then, disappointingly, after maybe an hour Im left with an Encre Noir vetiver and nothing else. Take this review with a grain of salt. Its more of mental notes for myself. Maybe someone will find it useful.

I never liked the original Eau Sauvage EDT but this modern interpretation on the original is different and very nice indeed. I get the bergamot at the start and the woody vetiver but the star of the show accord is the sweet myrrh at the heart of the scent. I know it's not in the official breakdown of notes but I swear I can smell neroli mixed in with the myrrh in this scent.

To sum up a classy gentleman's fragrance which would be perfect for the office.

This is a luxurious perfume indeed. If I didn't know better, I could imagine it's from 80's or 90's easily. Even if it's linear, it has great depth and sense of richness in it while still being something quite unique. It's like liquid oil, not just some watered down hoax like many modern perfumes.

The scent is green and earthy, but not in a fresh way, it's like a traditional Finnish sauna, where people beat eachother with birch branches, you get a fresh but still hot and smoky feeling! The scent makes you comfortable and relaxed, confident aswell.

The overall vibe I get from ESP is very earthy, natural, down to earth, warm.

I feel at ease wearing this with neat casual clothing, fresh after grooming and shower on a fair (not hot) day. A cigar compliments this scent, they mix well.

Mature, but not old. I don't think it would suit teenagers

Totally worth the dime, it's special in every aspect!

I had worn this once or twice to test it and thought it was great. I fell in love with it last weekend. I wore it on a relatively cool, late summer night in Washington DC. I was going to a cigar lounge so thought this would have the right traditional masculine edge I wanted in that setting. It was perfect. Even in a smokey room I got whiffs from time to time and it could not have been better. Just as you get a hint of sweetness there is a dry herbal scent with some smoke leather and vetiver. It is not overly masculine or in your face but makes a laid back manly statement. It lasted forever--in fact the next morning the smell of the fragrance was stronger on my skin than the cigar smoke. This is a must try for anyone. This bottle will stay in my collection.

After having spent years with Chanel Allure Homme Sport, Cologne, Bleu with great satisfaction was looking for some additional chain to be on the safe side if i would get bored by Jacques Polge's works (which i do not believe really to come). After some online and offline studies and visits to Douglas and Marionnaud in different malls picked Dior and Francois Demachy's creations. And what is notable: Dior Homme Sport (2012) does not have a longevity on my skin (despite it is a nice citric fragrance and cited by many as a minimum middle range longevity having one) like the mentioned Chanel fagrances having. So wanted to have some more longlasting effect checking possibility to find of eau de parfum (eg fom Dior). Yes of course you al knew already what i know now there are and at least 2 of them easier available from Dior: Homme Intense and the Eau Sauvage Parfum. In my view they playing in totally different league despite both having great longevity (luckilly because i do not wanted to loose Dior as not lasting on me enough time). To describe in color vwhat i feel when wearing those: Intense is braun, blackish but braun, deep oldish too much there but almost feminine, Eau Sauvage Parfum is deep geen feel really grrreeeennn and oily and balmy masculine confident. One is pulling bit down other is uplifting make me feel special maure but not oldish or so (strange to write it down) . Of course both are high quality but no question for me how much i do feel the Eau Sauvage Parfum much more perfect for myself (even if it is so 'strong' that one puf first time made me dizzy - but that's beautiful dizziness what i was looking for since long times). Still keep Chanel as premier but Dior's recent creatiion catched me and i dont want to escape just divin in their green marvellous vaves. Good work Mr. Demachy!!!

I did something with this frag that I've never done before. I got my Decantshop samples in this afternoon, including the Eau Sauvage Parfum. I tried a spray of this on my wrist to do a quick smell test. 30 mins later, I was in my car, driving to the nearest Sephora!

This is ridiculously delicious, and it's now at about the 3.5hr mark. Creamy, slightly smoky/resinous notes. A skosh of vetiver. I hardly noticed citrus of any type, it apparently shot right past the top note and into the heart on my skin.

I WILL get a bottle of this tomorrow - talk about impulse buy... Definitely not one that everyone will like, but this one grabbed me by my lapels and demanded to be added to my wardrobe. OK, I say, done!

Hi.

It is always nice to have an DIOR name in your collection.A perpetual classic. ESP is one of those perfume that never goes out of style.All gentleman should try and use this EDP because ESP is in the true sense of the word a gentleman's perfume. Classy,Chic, Elegant,Vibrant,Sophisticated,Amazing, Mesterpiece and Gentlemanlike.

Great opening and great ending this is a superb trait between more DIOR fragrances just like this one.At the beginning It smells predominate of the Citrus notes.myrrh in the middle and vetiver in the base notes making you feel like caught in an exotic grove where all sorts of fragrant herbs grow.
Excellent aroma that can be used during the day as well as at night.The dry down is fantastic indeed.

ESP is a very earthy and sensuous fragrance.this one is not for the average fragrance guy who wears popular fragrances.It is a more developed taste.In my opinion It's has a very subtle smell and masculine in nature.very french in style.suitable for business meetings and anywhere you want to assert yourself.A wonderful signature fragrance for a rich tycoon and one of my 5 favorites at the moment. Thank you CD!

Sillage?Ok.

Longevity?10 hours on my skin.

This is one precious olive green juice.Warm and comforting with real staying power. I applied before work today on a cold Sydney winters day and 13 hours later I can still smell a faint trail. It may not be my signature scent but its pretty close to it.its probably more suited for the colder months but can be worn year round in my opinion.i love Dior fragrances and this beauty does not disappoint.Warm, citrusy and earthy with the vase note of Vetiver.it may not suit everyone but its classy and sophisticated . Class in a bottle and you can tell its well made. 10/10

This is a very good perfume by CD citrusy and fresh. Would be perfect in a summers evening/night walking around with your partner with the wind blowing and the stars out, somewhere in the MED e.g France, Italy in the boulevard preferably near the sea side strolling along and enjoying the evening. I'm not a specialist about fragrances but this one is for sure one of those fragrances who deserve a place in a mans perfume/fragrance collection.

I sprayed this at the airport not thinking anything of it...walked away and was later transfixed with my wrist.

Am I the only person who thinks that this smells like TOM FORD GREY VETIVER? That is a huge compliment coming from me (One of my signature scents)

It uses vetiver in a similarly effortless manner.
I am very impressed with this fragrance. High quality and execution.

Just got this version of Eau Sauvage, is it an EDP? and little by little my affection for LIDGE is getting smaller. First it was Prada pour Homme Intense which drieness made it perfect for warmer weather. And then, now, Eau Sauvage Parfum adds a hint of citrus to the theme making it as perfect as a designer fragrance can get. It is so simple that I am anxious to find something else , some more notes, but nothing, it is only citrus&mirrh&vetiver however they are so deep so profound so rich that make anything else a pale distant presence. Also, it is a man, not a*man, no, a real man, you and I sort of man and yet it give us a kind of sophistication is not ours but we want to achive, we want to embody that and we succeed. First I thought it would need a special occasion to be worn but I will do whenever I feel like feeling I am The Man. Please, note that I am big Guerlain fan ever since I put my nose on Heritage.

Terrific male fragrance, it's sweet, slightly powdery, and it gets a lot of compliments. It doesn't need to be applied generously so it lasts forever. Easily one of the best sweet fragrances. I'm not too fussed over bottles but this one is just magnificent (as is the juice it contains), the semi-industrial look and the magnetic cap are perfect, a must-buy.

This is a VERY BALMY scent. The myrrh, bergamot and vetiver sound like they would combine to make a slightly dry scent but that is not the case. The myrrh in here is too strong and gave me a headache. This stuff can get cloying fast so be careful. Dior uses high quality ingredients and this smells fairly good but it was just too cloying and could have been blended slightly better to tone down the myrrh. This is definitely for the 30 and up crowd though.

Ridiculously sexy. Macho all the way. Elegant, modernly classy. Wear this at night time for the night club and you will be set. Bravo. Smoky at first, dark, green, earthy, woody, musky, such a great combination. It stays close to the skin as it's not loud. It can be worn all year round and for any occasion. Strong. Dior keep making quality stuff like this please. Try it.

With Eau Sauvage Parfum, Dior is bringing genuinity back. This fragrance has a lot more quality then most of the other frangrances on the market today. There is none of that piercing synthetic glue-like scent I get in many of today's (re-) formulations.

ESP is true craftsmanship. I'm glad to see that with todays regulations on raw materials this is still possible.

What I also like here is the soberness in which the whole thing has been done and presented. Packaging that has not been changed since 1966 and not many ingredients in the parfum. It fits today's philosophy of surrouding us with less. We feel best with harmony and peace.

In aromatherapy Bergamot is an effective antidote against depression and nervousness. Vetiver is calming, strengthens self-awareness and gives purpes to reality. Myrrh gives clarity, reason and is also calming. I wonder if Francois Demachy used this knowledge or was it instinctive he knew these three plant oils would deepen eachothers effect. ...I am getting carried away here ;-)

Wonderfull scent. It will be my favorite for a long time.

at first spray I thought, wow, wonderful but what does it remind me of...I immediately thought, now I could be wrong but clinque's aromatics elixir.. just going off memory,not quite as strong as that but along the same lines to me. I always loved that fragrance if used in moderation I had often thought of grabbing my wifes bottle and trying it on myself but was always reluctant to do..just hey that is a woman's perfume..but this sort of reminds me of that type of potent snappy good smelling, powerful sexy scent, but now a man version ..thinking about ordering this one, I could see this as the perfect tuxedo scent or dressed up..formal settings a party...but just a powerful masculine, luxurious "pretty" smelling fragrance for the guy that just wants to be at the top of his game, I don't think you would need to much of this to make an impact..sniff this one if you have the chance..other fragrances it reminds me of is cartier must pour homme but this is superior in every way...just some similarities to me out off the first spray...two thumbs up from me. incredibly classy ..I feel smarter somehow when I wear this. VERY NICE FRAGRANCE! reminds of the way when I first tried the original polo...that essence and scent trail I still remember that fragrance making me lift my head up with a smile.
UPDATE: I bought it .. smooth and cultured, now where did I put my damn cuff links?

House of Doir, Finally broke through with a men's fragrance being a Eau De Purfum. Eau De Purfum has almost always been referred to as women's fragrance's. Men have always had either a cologne or EDT.
The first time I sampled it on my skin and returned to work, I had so many tell me how good I smelled. I had one female co-worker insist that I tell her what I was wearing because she liked it so much, she wanted it for herself that's how knew it was an excellent product from the house of Dior.
When I first tried it, it was a bit heavy for the first hour . After it had settled it had an amazing aroma of Bergamot with a fine blend of Myrrh and Vetiver which gives this purfum the longevity beyond 12hr's.
Summing it in two words is... Loving it !!!!! Another phrase everyone has heard is "less is more", with only three notes Dior has created a MASTERPIECE..it takes on a very unique and attractive appeal that makes this a MUST HAVE .
Longevity is well past 12hr's
Sillage is Excellent
Overall...I rate this 10/10.
This is one of my signature fragrance's now, it is perfect from the late summer through till early spring.
There is nothing else that anyone can compare it to in my book !!!!!!!!

Somebody mentioned a weak marketing? I think its the best marketing ever! Alain Delon & Romy Schneider in La Piscine! Of course if you havent seen the movie you may not know what/whom Iam talking about. Anyways, this scent is fantastic, already an evergreen, classy and stylish with great staying power. A fragrance that is superb from the head notes down to the base. In the first half hour it strongly reminds me of Gianni Versace"s masterpiece from 1984: L'Homme! Same class but Dior gets even better as it takes a nicer direction in the dry down. Very brave take on a 20th Century Classic which has been transformed into a 21st Century Classic!

Nice, timeless scent !

Opens with fresh bergamot.

I get many similarities with YSL's M7 Oud Absolu in the drydown, given the presence of myrrh. Coupled with woods (vetiver here), it gets very medicinal.

Caution : sillage is super heavy. It can easily get overwhelming.

What's in a name? Dior could have called this Eau de Dog Sh*t, and I still would have bought it. Simply incredible.

This is all veti-myrrh, which is surprisingly versatile for me. I just wish the bergamot hung around a little longer, as it seems to disappear within 30-60 seconds. If you don't get all hung up about the nomenclature link to Eau Sauvage, you can truly enjoy what is a phenomenal scent. At the end of the day, who the hell cares what it's called???

First of all, don't go by the misleading "parfum" designation. This is not a more concentrated version of Eau Sauvage. This is a flanker. Different notes/a reinterpretation/an hommage - call it what you will. They should have called it something other than "Parfum" - that confuses people.

It's a lovely, warm, soft, balmy smell. Not aggressively masculine, but dressy, finished and presentable. The myrrh note dominates and is quite pleasant. It's one of those scents I like to sniff on myself; in fact, I've been doing this all day. Lovely. My wife likes it a lot, too.

This has some aromatheraputic qualities, I think. It's calming.

I don't get the vetiver note at all, by the way. Vetiver has a pungency that this simply does not have. This is smooth and elegant.

I did write that I wanted this one, but now I'm not so sure. I have Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree, which finishes with the same sweet myrrh note. The difference is that this stuff gets there directly while Pour Monsieur Concentree has an evolution through other notes. But it's the same destination.

I made 2 Cardinals sins, one being taken in by the reviews I wanted to believe [It is so easy to blank out the less favourable reviews on this site]. The second one was buying a bottle via the web without actually trying it. I took a punt as I wouldn't have been visiting any Duty Frees in the near future.
I really love ES EDT but as some reviewers have stated the only commonality is the name.
Although ES Parfum is fairly pleasant it's nowhere near as classy as EDT. For me it's too intense and heavy, more suitable for a woman. It's ironic that its longevity is as long as any scent I have owned.
I would recommend anyone to try it first before buying, no doubt there will be the efficinadoes that would say that's a given, however it's easy to get sucked into reading these reviews and with the links to sites such as EBay and Amazon you've bought a bottle before realising it, Not much different to on-line gambling!

I love this site and appreciate the time people take to express their opinions, but the good old time honoured tradition of trapsing round Duty Frees before boarding your flight takes some beating, the only flaw with that is by the time you realise the scent you have tried is the one for you, normally 2 hours into the flight, its never available in the Duty Free of your destination airport!

At first spray I am really digging it. I bought this and the original from the late 60s. Picked up the original from Saks ordered the parfum online since I couldn't find it. The original is amazing I had never worn it. The parfum is awesome and intensified but not like so intense that you are hating it. It's actually awesome. And to me it has a very creamy note in it. It's smooth. I love it. And I'm so very happy to have purchased this and newly discovered the Eau Sauvage line of frags. Now I want to check out the other two flankers.

SUBLIME!

Wearing “Eau Sauvage, Parfum” for the first time whilst going to see Quentin Tarrantino’s new ‘Western’ masterpiece, “Django Unchained”, was an unforgettable experience as I sat in the cinema deeply spell-bound not only by the unfolding majesty of Tarrantino’s cinematic genius, but also by the power, longevity and beauty that was igniting my olfactory senses given my choice of new perfume.

Indeed, just as Tarrantino places so much attention to detail regarding his exquisite use of colours and palates to achieve stunning, dramatic effect, so it is with Dior's high quality, “Eau Sauvage, Parfum”: a compellingly rich, exceptionally well-composed, and perfectly edited perfume that explodes gorgeously in the olfactory equivalent of full-HD.

Stylistically, “Eau Sauvage, Parfum” is ‘modern’, and feels attuned to the sort of chic, urban landscape of modern city and business life inhabited by a protagonist played by the sophisticated chiseled beauty of Michael Fassbender, as opposed to an ‘organic’ fragrance that reminds one of a dreamy, afternoon's walk during the Fall with the myriad coloured leaves crunching underfoot.

Yet, just as Tarrantino re-works the age-old cinematic tradition of the ‘Western’ to devastatingly modern, relevant, and razor-sharp effect, this perfume puts me in mind of an earlier era within a genre exemplified by Guerlain’s wonderful, “Heritage” from 1992, albeit without the smoky patchouli emphasis inherent to the latter. In significant contrast, then, to Edmond Roudnitska’s original masterpiece, “Eau Sauvage, Parfum” hints at - (and I stress, 'hints at') - amber-oriental fougere moments of beauty that nullify its entry in to those fragrances that commit to yet another fresh, ‘digital’, modern ‘vetiver’, or a those that try to achieve that elusive “Yohji Homme” theme.

For me, however, the most fascinating aspect of Eau Sauvage, Parfum” is its ability to behave, paradoxically, as if it is already the ‘vintage’ version of its actual self and was first composed years ago – a remarkable achievement in this era of restrictions and trends.

I have appreciated “Dior Homme” as one of the strongest ‘masculine’s ‘ to appear in the last decade, though personally find "Eau Sauvage, Parfum" to be the best (‘masculine’) creation Dior has done since the original version of “Fahrenheit” back in the late-80s.

A ‘must-have’; this perfume possesses an impact of steadfast authority and beauty and remains exceptionally poised between the realms of aromatic freshness and richer, sweeter, seductive accords. Importantly it inhabits an inspired realm within contemporary perfume perhaps not dissimilar to the inspiring electric "Django Unchained" created by a genius working within the medium of cinema.

Love at first sniff. Just tested this at the Dior counter and I am pleasantly surprised. It has the perfect citrus with a smokiness blended in.
Bought the 100ml bottle and it is such a classy fragrance I am very impressed. I had samples of Extreme which is very nice too.

Wow, this is Francois Demachy just showing off his perfumer skills. Dior basically said to him thank you for giving us Dior Homme, Dior Intense etc. You can do what you want, I want to do my version of Eau Sauvage. This is an extraordinary scent artistically, It's all about the craftsmanship in this one, it's not for others to like but for the wearer who enjoys fragrance art this is a Picasso. To take on something from way back 66 and create something which is totally different yet still possess the same DNA is magic. Francios Demachy I salute you. Bravo

simple; this perfume is a masterpiece to me, one of my favourite man-marketed scents:) i say so because many of my favourites are either unisex or women fragrances that have a sharp masculine side to them, simply coz men fragrances have waaay too much limitations i believe. they're safe, predictable and dare i say; boring. in th sea of perfume clones, there are exceptionally good standouts; egoiste, D&G pour homme, opium homme, m7...

anyway back to eau sauvage parfum; it's dark, 2 faced perfume with a bright fresh citrus side, and a deep, woody, smoky and very rich base. i get notes of myrrh, woods and oud even. i think this should become a classic, and in the tepid male perfume market today, it is an alien. a modern vintage timeless fragrance.
4+ stars.

Tested this today. One spritz on the left wrist. Now after 12 hours i still can smell it. Wow. And i still like to smell it. Double-Wow!

Didn't really expect that i like it. I'm not a fan of "old-style" scents. My first reaction was: A classic perfume for men. That's it! Classy, sophisticated and dense (it's EDP concentration). I get the myrrh, some sweetness, a little bit vanilla. More mature than Dior Homme Intense but if you can pull off Guerlain's LIDGE than give this a try.

Projection is nice. Always there, but not monstrous. Gentlemen-like.

UPDATE: Received a small bottle yesterday (will last me a long time - one spray is enough for me). When i sniffed the sprayer, it smelled like original eau sauvage. On skin, it becomes a different animal.

It's mature, i.e. a lot of 50+ year old men looking for an evening scent will probably enjoy this. BUT: look at the official commercial movie with the young Alain Delon. This can also be sex in a bottle!

i tried this once again yesterday...i like the opening and the first minutes but then, the perfume terns too sweet and i would prefer it different. it has nothing, as it was said, from the original. This is much more sweet and balmy, the original is lemony and soapy. The longevity is unbelievable, it lasts for a week maybe if you dont wash. This kind of perfume is definitely for very cold weather or at least below 10C.
It is warm and classy but sweet. Thank god is not the sweetness of the new releases. One spray i consider it enough to take you as long as you wish.

Extremely nice and sensual, but the notes breakdown won't describe the fragrance: a floriental for men. I do get an apricot-osmanthus-white floral note, with some of the citrus notes of the original ( not very much) and a sweet oriental base. It does have a carnal note also, that does not smell dirty, just physical. I want it, definitely.

Women could try this one, it is completely shareable.

I would be very interested in comparing this revised formula to the original which I had in 1987, I always remember to be overly citrus, even Limey on the top notes and not much else apart from a hint of vetiver on dry down, it was a very simple fresh and linear fragrance and yes I would definitely say for 40+ Gentlemen, I think i may check this out again as i'm curious now

Have you present Eau Sauvage? Forget it! Another fragrance.

I don't want to complain again about those same-names that companies gives to a completely different perfume but: nothing in common to share.

Better so.The original recalls me one of those women young at the late sixties, with sky blue eyeshadow, that feels to dare wearing a male scent with lily of the valley.
I really like Eau Sauvage Parfum. This is a round perfume, warm-dark-cold, incensed, "natural", even too simple and monodic in some way, it smells like the french version of those oils you can find into an oriental-herbalist's shop. I've never been to russia, but in some way I imagine like this the smell of an orthodox church, or better of the Tsar. The very first time I tried this I thought it could be also the tipical heart note that you find into some unspecified fragrances of the 80s, like Kouros, or Paco Rabanne. In fact when I've "sniffed back" Giorgio Beverly Hills from a free sample (mini bottle) I had since the 90s, I exclaimed "It's this!", Giorgio is more warm-sweet-sunny, and multifaceted. Then, at the end, I've bought Giorgio.

I think this is a great addition to the classic Eau Sauvage. To be honest, Eau Sauvage original formula is a bit hard for me to pull off. It is very strong in the citrus category and can be a little overpowering on the nose.

With this version, it is a bit softer, woodier, and I can definitely appreciate what they have done with the balmy and earthy elements this Parfum version contains.
I give it a 10/10. It is simply a beautiful fragrance, but make take some getting used to.
You have to be unbiased when trying this out. Get a real sample, not just one spray. Wear it a couple times, and do NOT compare this to Eau Sauvage, as these are not one in the same.

Can't wait to get a bottle of this. I will wear it often as it seems to be very versatile to me.

If anyone has any suggestions as to fragrances that are similar to La Nuit De L'Homme, Only for the Brave, Terre D'Hermes, D&G The One, and anything woody and peppery, please let me know.

Thank you

Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum, to me, embodies two things:
1) A young man maturing into a more refined, sophisticated gentleman.
2) A mature refined, sophisticated gentleman receiving his "2nd wind".

More at home on a date or a late-night rendezvous than at a board meeting, Eau Sauvage Parfum is more cozy, warm and rather seductive. For its debut on my skin, I was showered with compliments from ladies in a rather wide age range. This has mass appeal, even in the Middle East.
If you thought Dior Sauvage was too light and Dior Eau Sauvage Extreme was too heavy, Dior's Eau Sauvage Parfum is JUST right.. and has my FULL RECOMMENDATION...

Tested this with MUCH delight. This is another Manly brew here. Classic Vetiver Green Bergamot, straight up, pure slightly bitter sweet herbal green. Less rough on the nose than the cigar-like bitterness of Cumin in the infamous Polo Green(recently reformulated).
This is something i'd love to save up for a full bottle.

This is in no way a bad fragrance, and in fact, it's a pretty good vetiver fragrance. However, I just can't enjoy this. I've been wearing Eau Sauvage for so long, when I see something called Eau Sauvage Parfum, I expect a much stronger version of Eau Sauvage. This isn't it.

What you have here is a vetiver fragrance that has top notes that resemble Eau Sauvage. Unfortunately the top notes are gone in ten minutes, and what you're left with is a vetiver scent with some myrrh to give it color and depth.

If I weren't such a longtime Eau Sauvage wearer, I'd probably like this much more than I do. But I can't get myself to wear this.

Fantastic opening notes with loads of bergamot which i love. The opening reminds me of rive gauche-before reformulation.a couple of hours later i still get the RG vibe yet the fragrance is turning into something darker sort of smokier,sweeter and manly. original eau sauvage is deeply hidden here.The bottle matches perfectly what is inside-as well as the green-poisonous color juice.I LOVE this new eau sauvage interpretation.very elegant and classy.Both sillage and longevity are great.Very well done.I ll be getting it soon.

I`m a huge fan of ES. In fact, one of the best scents in my taste. I think this job is very, very good, but not better than the EDT.
Great amounts of Vetiver in it. It`s an excellent fragrance and its name could be, perfectly, different from Eau Sauvage.
A lot of vetiver, maybe too much. Good job, no doubt, but not a must.
Anyway, you must try it on your skin.

Even with a modern touch, Eau Sauvage still remains very much... French. The myrrh is an interesting facet, acting as the middle-ground to this fragrance. The warm, balmy, resinous, smoked earth elements gives Eau Sauvage Parfum an appreciable Eastern ambiance. Captured in the same classy bottle dressed in black, with a new and improved magnetic cap. Symbolic to the fragrance, as it is quite drawing and I might add, entrancing. A masterpiece that sits alongside Dior Homme Intense Eau de Parfum with quality comparable to the Dior Addict classic. This perfume would compliment a wool, cashmere or double-breasted peacoat. A fragrance so deep and intense will only thrive in the winter.

Dior got this one absolutely right. This just oozes class and sophistication. I never cared much for the original, although I had great respect for it's quality it was simply not for me. This one on the other hand is right down my alley. The citrus notes are still there but are well controlled and do not dominate as much as the original; and I personally find this very attractive. There is a smoothness and richness in this that is magnificent. Worth every penny.

Eau Sauvage Parfum: This recent release evokes a time I thought had eluded us for sure. There are satisfying strains of citrus and vetiver in the topnotes. The fragrance evolves as the heart of medicine myrrh paired with chewy musk peers into view, in stark resemblance to the discontinued L'Instant de Guerlain Eau Extrême Pour Homme (minus the gourmand notes). Later in the drydown there arrives a manlike accord that can only be compared to the very best part of original Drakkar Noir's drydown (the one part that made Drakkar worthwhile). Compliments should come easily. Nearly a comforting (though not comfortable) fragrance, in spite of the raspy, almost-shrill aspect of vetiver that peeks its head out from time to time. The only drawback: an extended drydown that calls to mind Play by Givenchy.

I wasn't sure if this would make it to my shores. I feel like I'm on a roll with some recent purchases--Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense, Ben Sherman, Spicebomb, and now Eau Sauvage Parfum!

It's opening is the best part of the fragrance. It opens with a blast of warm, smoky myrrh, rich and enveloping. Then the scent develops with a play of contrasts--hesperidic over resins, powdery over earthy, sometimes sweet over dry, light over dark. These different tensions play up nuances, to my nose, due to the vetiver they used, which is much like Guerlain's Vetiver in a good hefty dose, along with patchouli, and some tonka, to keep the myrrh warm. The scent stays close to the skin. Throughout the day you catch a sniff of it, warm, dark, masculine, a bit mysterious and inviting, elegant and sophisticated. The bottle sure wreaks elegance, old school with the modern, and that shade of green piques your curiosity, and the magnetic cap is the best feature in mens fragrance of late. You can say the scent also gives the impression of warm, rich leather.

As with all scents, you wear what you like. Dior, I'm sure wanted to gear this scent to the thirty something plus lot. This is a man's Parfum--to be put alongside of the "Intense" or the EdT Concentree family of mens perfumery, a little stronger, a little more long lasting than your typical EdT of today's standards, which is usually about 4 hours. By no means I ever felt the masculine Parfum was a true Parfum. After all, why would it be in a 100ml bottle with a spray nozzle and cost under $100 if it were a true parfum? It's like saying that Guerlain should sell Shalimar in 100ml spray bottles for less than $100. I think not.

Eau Sauvage always smelled to me of the gentleman's Eau de Cologne tinged with leather. Eau Sauvage Extreme (my choice in the past) was the gentleman's cologne with a touch of dandy and spice. ES Parfum is for the sophisticated gentleman who prefers to live in a posh condo overlooking the river Hades--with cleaning service. ;)

After never actually really liking its predecesors, the reason more emphasis should be put on what am just gonna say now, I HAVE TO GET THIS ONE, point blank. Longevity, sillage all as good as Dior Homme Intense... fantastic. Dior is becoming my favourite house after Guerlain. This is not for warmer days though, its not as fresh and zesty as its predecesors are, rather colder months or rather nights. Balmy just describes its to the point, with some darker, smoky dirty feeling... Very good stuff. Absolutely lovely.

One of the best affordable Vetiver based offerings on the market. If Vetiver by Guerlian was reformulated into a parfum strength this is what it *might smell like.

There is a Caron Por Un Homme soft (balmy?) vanilla in here on the drydown. It's got that "comfort scent" thing going on. Although it is still assertive enough to wear at the office.

A tad of citrus coupled with a heavy/dense Vetiver (similar to Vetiver Guerlain 2000 in the ribbed bottle) and a heavy myrrh base.

I spent 2 weeks wearing this before I ruined my bottle (long story).

Very good longevity and sillage. However the note that is the most prominent for the duration of the fragrance is the myrrh. This was my first interaction with myrrh. I like it but I would much rather be engulfed in Vetiver.

For the price this is a great deal for vetiver lovers.

I tried this yesterday for a first time on the skin. The perfume opens with bergamot and reminds somehow the original eau sauvage. After about 30 minutes the bergamot fades slowly away and then you left with myrrh and some vetiver. As time goes by the perfume gets sweeter and the myrrh dominates everything. It is not a citrus fragrance any more and consiquently, not for summer. The smell of Myrrh last for hours or days, very strong and sweet influenced with the vetiver. Although I like the perfume the first 30 minutes, at the end I was disappointed because of the strong balsam and the lost eau sauvage identity. It's a pity that Dior didnt make the original stronger with the great lemon and soapy/barbershop smell. I was expecting to buy this perfume but not now. It is ideal for those who like balmy fragrances. The quality is high, longevity and sillage but not the smell for me especially for summer. Overall, it is a nice scent but when you expect a stronger version of the original and you get something else, it is more or less the thing you dont want.
UPDATE
having tested this again now where the temperature is lower, the whole things looks and works better. not so sweet in winter and the bergamot is obvious for a longer time. The vetiver and myrhh are the dominate players and the perfume is very nice indeed, but has only very few if nothing from the original.

I’m a great fan of Eau Sauvage. I don’t have a recent bottle and am not sure what shape the current model is in. Mine is from 2001-2002, I’d guess. It’s floral, it’s pretty, it’s old-school fresh. It’s bright and inherently shiny.

There’s now Eau Sauvage Parfum, the Black Swan. It’s the dense, shadowy, witching-hour sibling of the original. Others have said they don’t smell any Eau Sauvage in the ESP, and although I understand why they say that, I do. A trace of the original is there, but the expansiveness is replaced by aloofness. Instead of the buoyant floral sillage of Eau Sauvage, ESP’s wake skates away from you like a demonstration of inertia. You stay put as she slides away from you saying. “You, sit. I’ll take care of this.”

I had a strong sense of déjà vu on sniffing ESP, and a few minutes into trying it, I knew why. Eau Sauvage Parfum smells remarkably similar to Parfums de Nicolai’s Vie de Chateau Intense, nearly Calandre/Rive Gauche similar. In my review of Vie de Chateau last year I mentioned the original Eau Sauvage, writing, “compare the first sniff of each side by side!” I don’t see this similarity as plagiarism, just as I didn’t mean to imply that Vie de Chateau was a copy of the original Eau Sauvage. More likely it’s kismet and a similar outcome from talented people investigating a similar set of ideas. I’d go so far as to say that Eau Sauvage Parfum is one of the best, most thoroughly executed mainstream releases I’ve smelled in years. It is definitive, it smells exceptionally good, and it demonstrates a classical perfume’s virtues of coherence and development. Taking Eau Sauvage, an icon, as a starting place, thinking broadly and in the end giving us a smart gem of a perfume---this is what I want from a flanker.

I’ve seen ESP called a vetiver fragrance, a myrrh fragrance. I find that the notes of hay & tobacco, the moist warmth/coolness fairly shout coumarin. Just as the swan is both ends of the spectrum in one entity, Eau Sauvage Parfum (like Vie de Chateau) comes off as a fougère/chypres hybrid taking the best form each genre.

Nice touch, the dark bottle. Brilliant magnetic cap

This is simply not a stronger version of Eau Sauvage. This perfume is a quite different fragrance, it belongs to another world. The citric scent is bergamote type, a bitter, resinous, dark, deep, smoky and rich citric scent.

Eau Sauvage Parfum is one of the best fragrances I ever tried, but it seems Dior has done a very weak advertising campaign.

I discoverted this perfume just by chance on a short trip. It was not available in the whole city and even not advertised anywhere. Even in Dior dealers in big department stores there was not publicity and not availability at all. I saw it by chance in a very important shop and I was thinking... another Eau Sauvage, and I didn't feel attracted (I like Eau Sauvage, but not specially), but then I tried...

What I discovered was an incredibly delicious, bitter, resinous and smoky citric perfume that quickly made me fall in love with it. It's a longlasting, enveloping, mysterious and rich fragrance that I couldn't stop buying it immediately.

I think the problem with understanding this perfume is that many people, when they see Eau Sauvage Parfum are just envisaging a more intense version of fresh Eau Sauvage and here comes the disappointment. It's absolutely not the same. I believe if Dior made a good ad campaign "explaining" that this new fragrance is a different, mysterious and dark scent, but not just a stronger version of Eau Sauvage it would attract more customers.

This is one of the more long lasting fragrances under hot and humid weather. Highly recommended in tropical countries.

Eau Sauvage Parfum has no top notes to speak of. It careens onto skin, all ingredients accounted for, and smells blob like: thick, sour, and greenish-brown. It's a resinous smell that resolves itself gradually into peripheral renditions of vetiver and myrrh. The vetiver takes the fore, and it's a beautiful vetiver note, very smoky, rooty, deep. If you concentrate you get occasional hints of jasmine, buried under the persistent myrrh resins, and my guess is it's Hedione, an ode to the original version of Eau Sauvage. After forty minutes the smoky vetiver begins to fade, and is tinted with freshness - bergamot! But it's used as a supporting note, oddly enough, and also transitionally - the citrus sweetens and morphs into pure myrrh. This sweet myrrh hums along steadily for a few more hours before fading into a gauzy white skin scent. This is a pleasant fragrance, more of an EDP really, but nothing I'd be inclined to purchase, because Guerlain Vetiver and Grey Vetiver do vetiver better, and Frankincense & Myrrh by Czech & Speake does myrrh better. Plus, who can wear this in the summer time? There are too many other compelling options for autumn and winter. I couldn't really say where and how Eau Sauvage Parfum could fit into my life, and that's a shame.

Tried this one last night. Nothing even close to the original EdS.I have to admit, I never loved original EdS, liked yes. (way to much citrus for me)
So I hoped this one could be right for me, lees citrus, vetiver for base, perfect. Turns out,this is whole new fragrance, nothing I've hoped for.

Start with Bergamot and well blended Myrrh and Vetiver. This blend of Myrrh and Vetiver is some heavy sweet smell that start to play solo 10-15 min. after.And because this is Eau de Parfum it has depth and stayed for a long time. Sprayed last night at 9:00 pm on paper, still there after 12h.
I love vetiver, but not in this mix, lees woody more aromatic sweet smell. This is not summer fragrance, way to heavy. For autumn/winter yes.

Bottom line, I'm going to skip this one and hope Dior is going to reformulate in next few years, make for the first time better then original issued.

I found this in the store today and was so excited only to find it nothing like the classic Eau Sauvage. I was really hoping the edp would have been more concentrated sharing the same basic dna as the classic. Seems this one is a whole "new" fragrance that, to me, does not stand out in the crowd either. Perhaps they should have named it cologne and put it in a plain bottle without a cap. I was so looking forward to this. I just want to be blown away with something new. Matter of fact I want each of my fragrances to be unique from each other and continually blow me away! JG 051212

God, what a bad surprise. I tought this was going to be an "eau de parfum" Eau Sauvage, but it ends up being a very unplaesant, sweet playdo scent ...

EDIT : Maybe I was to harsh on this one, perhaps it was the disapointment talking. I retried it the other day and it was kinda pleasing, surely sweet and resinous, but it's ok, overall. Great, great longevity though, one of the great point. For the fresh summer nights.

I really wanted to love this one but I am afraid it was a "bitter" disappointment. Bitter in the very 'scent' as all I got was a bitter cardamom, some bergamotte, overshadowed by Mhyrr and Vetiver.
I sampled on a very warm and humid day at the airport, but sadly I found it very unpleasant.

Perhaps its an Oxymoron, to try and amend a classic summer fragrance so that it would morph into a heavier night and autumn/ winter version: citrus based scents will always escape fast and they belong into summer daytime (Eau sauvage does!!)

"Eau sauvage extreme" on the other hand is a keeper!!

Try the fresher, greener "DUNE for men" instead!

With the new Parfum (Eau de Parfum in fact) version Francois Demachy turned Eau Sauvage into Eau Vetiver. It starts not zesty and old-fashioned but modern with smooth citruses. Soon vetiver begins to play or even to be a soloist surrounded by something sweet (i think myrrh). I feel a Guerlain type of vetiver here. Definitely on my skin this Parfum smells nothing like the regular Eau Sauvage but more like a typical vetiver-centred fragrance. That's really a new interpretation of classics and I think most of you will like it. As for me Eau Sauvage Parfum is too sweet (sweet is not an accurate word, mild or gentle will be more exact) for Eau Sauvage.

Looking forward to this version especially since it's an edp. It's logical to automatically(optimistically) compare this to the original ES so I hope the biggest difference will be it's life span on my skin which has always prevented me from actually purchasing it. It's true, Diorella is a potential contender for ES. Perhaps this is what we're all waiting for. The more edp options for men's fragrances the better. Lay it on. JG 033012
