Sauvage  Christian Dior for men Pictures

Dior launches its new fragrance Sauvage, with the name originating from the fragrance Eau Sauvage from 1966, although the two don’t belong to the same collection. Sauvage is inspired by wild, open spaces; blue sky that covers rocky landscapes, hot under the desert sun.

Dior in-house perfumer, François Demachy, signed this creation. The fragrance is announced as radically fresh, raw and noble at the same time. The composition is reportedly prevalent with carefully selected natural ingredients. Fresh top notes of Calabria bergamot encounter ambroxan, obtained from precious ambergris, and its woody trail.

Dior Sauvage comes out in September 2015, advertised by actor Johnny Depp. It is available as 60 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. The nose behind this fragrance is Francois Demachy.

Sauvage Fragrance Reviews

Scent is clean and pleasing to wear, however, I am not getting great longevity or sillage on this one. I will keep using it as I like it and have a bottle but so far if I want to smell clean I reach for Chanel Platinum Egoiste. I will admit this feels sexier but I use other scents for that feeling. My one hope is that this scent smells as good on me as it does when other men pass me wearing this.

I've heard this is more of a love or hate kind of fragrance, and I think I'm in the hate camp. One spray on the neck was enough to agitate and burn my nose after awhile. I've smelt this coming off of other people and it was definitely tamed and somewhat pleasant, but I personally can't wear it seeing as there's physical discomfort involved. This is the only fragrance to do that to me, so far.

My boyfriend and I went perfume sniffing and out of the lineup this was one I could distinctly pick out nearly every time. A lot of the other scents were all citrus bursts or nearly sweeter than the Pour Femme varieties. We both gravitated towards this one.

The pepper, geranium and vetiver "dirty" up this otherwise fresh scent and really add some kick. And the bergamot really sings.

There are a few frags out there now that are trying to copy Sauvage. I have tried most of them so far and I will write what I think about them here. So in short, Sauvage has a sharp opening which is fruity and fresh and then there is strong pepper with ambroxan.

Dylan Blue - Has very little in common with Sauvage. Some sweet resemblance in the opening but that's it. It is more a cross between BdC EDP and ADG Profumo. Good smell but not close to Sauvage

Aqua Atlantiqve - This one is more like Sauvage. it has that fruity aspect of the Saubage opening just without the ambrox and pepper. At least I can't smell them. It's mostly fruity with that Aqua DNA in the dry down. Sweet opening of Sauvage, which without that pepper resembles and clean shower gel for men. Very mass pleasing and pleasant.

Zara Aromatic Future - Maybe the closest to Sauvage but not a clone. Definitely not a clone. The opening is not fruity at all. You get this blast of synthetic pepper and ambrox that stay on for quite some time and can be very off putting. The dry down is more powdery and then it becomes a bit sweet due to the lavender. It has that harsh aspect that Sauvage has.

La Rive Extreme Story - Nothing like Sauvage. Maybe a little bit of the ambrox and pepper but it is so so weak. On my skin it was closer to Versace Pour Homme than to Sauvage. Just a simple highly synthetic freshie that has quite strong alcohol opening.

To sum up. If you want a fruitier Sauvage vibe, go for Bvlgari. If you want more of that peppery metallic ambrox, go for Zara. They last good amount of time. But, if you want Sauvage, go with Sauvage cuz none of these frags are copying it identically. Haven't tried Prada Carbon but I suspect it's not a clone either, just it has the same vibe as do the rest of the bunch.

Very high compliment factor. Lasts a long time. Projects very well too. This is one of those fragrances that doesn't come across as too strong, yet, is very long lasting. This is a rare combination and I'm noticing this awesomeness with Dior fragrances.
All rounder - any season, any time and never cloying no matter how much you spray.
5 -6 sprays get me 8-10 hours of longevity
This is just a splendid formulation and I truly hope its preserved this way.
2016 batch.

@Renzo from what I've understood, he's talking about how the ambroxan is in this fragrance the main scent instead of being only used to help to increase the length and that's what is new and pleasant with that Dior Sauvage. Hope I helped!

Reminds me a little bit of Bleu de Chanel and Bvlgari Aqva Amara.Perfect for more less any ocasion and any time of year.Ladies love this scent.
Maybe not the best scent in the world,but if you want a huge compliment getter,you can't go wrong with it.

I am a huge dior fan. I can not believe this house has produced something like Sauvage. This is a sweet and highly synthetic scent. The enormous amount of ambroxan makes me headache. Normally, this manufacturer sets the highest quality standards. But not in this case.

After a LOT of hunting, I think Sauvage might be my new signature fragrance. Right now I'm juggling sample cards for about 20 of the top men's cologne's around - wearing different fragrances on different days, in addition to in-store smell-testing at Sephora and probably at least a hundred pages of reading on fragrantica & basenotes.

Is finding a good cologne worth this much effort, you ask? Well, you've got to live with it, right? Besides, it's a fun after-hours project.

In any case, I keep coming back to Sauvage. It's just a good all-around fragrance. Good for work, good for days off, good for just about anytime.

Honestly I tend to be drawn towards statement-making fragrances, but something like Spicebomb or anything by Mugler burns me out pretty rapidly. Sure, women may find vanilla gourmands sexy, but 8 hours of smelling like an ice-cream cone was enough for a while. Same with Terre Hermes - it's a great fragrance, but that cedar base left me feeling like I was trapped in a sawmill after about 4 hours.

Sauvage is balance, unobtrusive, not too feminine, and clean - so I just keep coming back to it day after day.

Generic and synthetic? I would never say that. People often equate fresh with generic, but there's a clear distinction between Sauvage and other chemical concoctions on the market named fresh. The scent itself is always a matter of personal preferences and olfactory experiences, and I can only speak for myself. Upon smelling Sauvage, it immediately invoked in me images of a relaxed and sunny summer morning. It's warm, bright, clear and relaxing; just like the morning summer sun. It's obviously a beautiful olfactory image in my case, and only few fragrances have succeeded to paint such vividly; therefore, I call it a masterpiece. I hope Dior doesn't decide to tamper around with the formula. Regarding the projection and longevity, it's excellent.

Do I like it? No... Do I respect it? Absolutely. To me, it just doesn't feel/sit right. However, I understand why others like it. Girls love it, you can wear it to anything, the majority of people think it smells great. When in doubt, just reach for Sauvage. You can't go wrong with this one

I absolutely fell in love with this one from the first moment I got my nose close it.
Regarding the amount of hate this gets, I'll say it's probably because of unmet expectations from a mild case of false advertising from Dior .... Just think about it for a second. The house that gave us the legendary Dior Homme line announces the arrival of an elixir called "Sauvage" in this mysterious, dark elegant bottle, with Johnny Depp looking like his bad self in the advertising campaign. You'd be crazy to expect anything other than another beastmode juice in the same mould as the likes of DH Parfum or Fahrenheit. Instead you're presented with this light fresh, sweet, summertime crowd-pleaser; who wouldn't want their money back. lol.
In other words, people were probably expecting a rottweiller but instead got a poodle.
I love it nonetheless, but I fear it's becoming too popular, as I seem to smell it on someone everywhere I go these days. Oh well, it's just that good.

I love it ! Can't add anything else to what's been said here. Fresh, energetic, sharp, metallic, crispy, soapy,really great sillage and longetivity ! Great for hot weather but i see it little bit more satisfying in hot weather nights ! Don't care if it's somehow generic as long as the smell is awesome ! Soon will be the new trend !

For me this is a warm weather only scent, in cooler weather to me it smells too sharp and gets cloying for me. But in warmer, especially more humid, weather, oh man does this thing smell great. Might have something to do with the fact that my skin is naturally on the drier side and needs the heat to help bring out the depth of the fragrance.

As others have said it has this clean fresh-outta-the-shower vibe; just this rich, rough, masculine freshness. Not as cheap smelling as an actual shower gel but it doesn't quite smell "cologney" either, it's somewhere in between.

Great for everyday wear in the warmer spring and summer days. Others trash it for its accessibility and its familiarity, the fact that its nothing exceptionally unique. But if you simply want to smell great on a day-to-day basis then this is awesome for that purpose.

I avoided writing this review for so long because I thought it was essentially pointless. EVERYONE has smelled this stuff by now; and if you haven't, get your butt down to any store ANYWHERE and try it - on the skin. I made THAT mistake last year.

You see, when I first smelled this on paper in March 2016, I was like "Daaaaammmmnnnn that's good stuff". Whether it's the uniqueness, subtle familiarity or what, some chemical they add makes this stuff truly addictive.

After a couple of days, I went back, sprayed it on my hand and went grocery shopping. It didn't take long before I realized that something was the matter. This stuff gave me a massive HEADACHE. Like an all-out chemical plant type headache. It was awful. I didn't enjoy the experience BUT STILL managed to get complimented by the cashier. Nice.

So here's my final assessment. This thing GETS COMPLIMENTS - Full stop. Whether you can tolerate wearing it or not, the sillage is attractive - even to me. But that doesn't change the fact that it smells like aldehydes having sex. CHEMICALS, boy. Man, how I wish I could wear this stuff, but I just can't. Thanks to Sauvage, I'll never forget what ambroxan smells like up close - dizziness.

Scent - 8/10
Longevity - 9/10
Projection - 9/10
Compliments - 11/10
Overall - 9/10 - Translated, "sauvage" means "wild", but a more appropriate name would be "grungy"

when i first smell this fragrance, it was like a glue. it was very strange and not like particular any other fragrance. but when i smell it again two or three times more, i feel that it was so intoxicated, it makes me so addicted to this fragrance. sauvage is crisp, fresh,masculine,heavy, and unique. maybe this fragrance has been mainstream for today but so many people still dig it to it. the performance is okay and people are kind of like it. i think its suitable that dior choose johny depp as the model for their advertisement, he is the symbol of the rebellion and kind of cool bad guy.

I am proud to say that i bought Sauvage before it became mainstream, when i had first bought it this scent was new and unknown and the lady at Macy's recommended it. Before I even wore this cologne, I saw so much hate about it and how synthetic, well now those people are eating their words and probably changed their minds. This is a clean, crips, fresh, spicy smell. I get so many compliments when i wear this, and living in a warm state the heat enhances the smell, ,also it is very long lasting you can smell the aroma on your skin for 8-12 hours after and the sillage is pretty decent maybe 6 -8hours.

Is this a good fragrance...at first I didn't think it was anything special, I almost sold my bottle. The reason I almost sold my bottle is because the longevity, it doesn't seem to last on my skin. I would have to give this moderate longevity.

The scent itself is about as safe as you can get. It does smell very good. For those that don't know, this is a fresh fragrance, it is slightly unique but, follows the lines of Blue De Chanel. You can wear this anywhere for any occasion, there may be better fragrances for cold weather but, I think you can even rock this freshie in the cold. As for longevity, it isn't spectacular on my skin but, the projection is quite good before it fades. I would say great projection for the first 2 hours, then it fades, as does the longevity.

The atomizer on this one is pretty fantastic, it sprays a lot of juice and it is a VERY fine mist. I am very glad that I ended up keeping it as I would have been selling an amazing all arounder fragrance.

I had read an article with Sonia Constant, Perfumer a few days ago. In that article, She said that Ambroxan is the best aromatic material that she nuzzled till now. This substance is made synthetically from clary sage and have a smell like amber.

If you see the official clip of Sauvage CD, you remember earth digging, soil, and 2 animal. That clip explain Sauvage CD so good.
You can detect earthy notes and animalic notes in Sauvage so clear.
This perfume is better to use in cold sessions due to a heavy scent in it due to Ambroxan.

--------------------------------------------------
من مدتی قبل مصاحبه ای رو که با خانم سونیا کنستانت عطار معروف فرانسوی انجام شده بود رو میخوندم. در قسمتی از اون مقاله از خانم کنستانت پرسیده شده بود که بنظر شما خوشبوترین ماده اولیه چه ماده ای است؟ در جواب هم وی گفته بود که "آمبروکسان". من بعد ازاین مقاله ترغیب شدم که در مورد این ماده بررسی هایی انجام بدم و متوجه شدم که ماده ای سنتتیک هست که ازگیاه مریم گلی استخراج میشه و بویی که داره تا حدی شبیه به کهرباست و در واقع فرم سنتتیک کهربا هست. در ضمن این ماده بیشتر به عنوان فیکساتیو یعنی نت نهایی در عطر استفاده میشه و کمتر در نتهای ابتدایی و میانه عطرها حضور داره

در عطر ساواژ از برند کریستین دیور؛ این ماده عنصر اصلی عطر هست. اگه شما کلیپ رسمی تبلیغاتی این عطر رو دیده باشید؛ یه یاد دارید که از خارج شهر و خاک و کندن زمین و نیز حیوانی شبیه به بوفالو صحنه هایی رو نشون میده. حال و هوای این عطر دقیقا همینه. یک حس خاکی؛ زمینی؛ غنی رو این عطر به تصویر میکشه. در ضمن آمبروکسان چون بویی حیوانی داره؛ در این کلیپ و در یک صحنه ی کوچک این نشانه با بوفالو و گرگ تداعی میشه

با توجه به بوی سنگینی که عطر ساواژ داره؛ شخصا استفاده از اون رو در فصول سرد سال توصیه میکنم و در بهار هم بنظر من قرار گرفتن این عطر روی پوست؛ حس خیلی سنگینی رو به شخص القا میکنه . تابستون هم که دیگه حساب کارش کاملا مشخصه

Fresh, spicy and nothing special. BUT.. this gets me soo many compliment from girls, it's crazy. Men however (including me), seem to not really love it that much. During a night out, a friend of mine once said that I was wearing an 'awful' fragrance. Within that same minute, a random girl grabs me, smells my neck and says I smell 'soooo f*cking good'.

Unfortunately it is (very) rapidly on it's way to become the new 1milion. In most departement store, the employee will recommend 'Sauvage'. Result: Most guys smell like this now.

I used to get "OMG, what is that!?" reactions, now I get more "Hey, you're wearing that Sauvage cologne".

Want to get simple compliments and smell like every other guy? Buy it. Want to smell different? DON'T BUY IT!

I've owned a bottle, now owned by my best friend who adores it. It is what it is: a modern, minimalist take on a barbershop fragrance, the merit of which is in an overly heavy concentration of ambroxan. As for me, I'll take John Varvatos Vintage any day. Now, that's a barbershop!

Not that I'd want to jump on the let's-hate-sauvage-for-no-reason bandwagon, but I'm wearing a sample today and I just don't like it, plain and simple. I find it annoying in the same way as Bleu de Chanel, which I also tried to like, but it's not my thing. (I enjoy allure homme and dior homme intense on the other hand).

My bottle finally came in the mail today. I've smelled the scent before, and although I liked it, I knew I needed to wear it more and analyze it more and I'm really glad I had a chance to review this after wearing it for a few hours.

Upon initial spray, nice citrus opening with pepper mixed in. Not your typical citrus fruity opening, this is a bit more complex and challenging to figure out (which pepper scents I'm actually smelling??). After 20-30 seconds on the drydown, I'm getting the pepper, bergamot and ambroxan which is why it is so difficult to figure out (those are not your typical everyday scents). After 5 minutes it smells great on your clothes and skin. Nothing synthetic at all about Sauvage. Just that pepper is so complex, it's difficult to get all the depth and exact smell of it. It seems to keep developing even after an hour. I really thought this one was gonna just be good, but it's sneaky, it's becoming really good.

I had the same thoughts, although not the same smell with Midnight in Paris, I didn't know what to think at first, but on the drydown Midnight in paris becomes amazing. Same with Polo Black, it really takes shape in the drydown, and Tom Ford Noir Extreme, even better and smoother on the drydown.
The pepper in this scent might be too confusing for some, and also too sharp to wear for some of you as well, to each there own. But after the drydown kicks in, really nice scent here. At first sniff, many people might think this is average. If you own it, and actually wear it and analyze it after 30 minutes on yourself, that's where it really shines.
This isn't a scent that comes to life on a tester strip in 5 seconds, and I think based on that alone if people are comparing it to 3-4 other scents at Macy's, they will probably go with other scents, but Sauvage has much more depth to it than that. Nothing linear about this scent at all. If you own it, you know exactly what i'm talking about. Enjoy

After all I did enjoy this scent, it got better and better, but I've wanted a few other colognes as well a bit more, this one is going up for sale on Ebay tonight potentially.

I'm not a huge fan of typical men's fragrances and usually end up liking unisex or in some cases women's fragrances (Elixir des Merveilles); however, I received a bunch of samples from Sephora including Dior Sauvage and I have to say I really like it and I ended up purchasing a full bottle!

I sampled alongside Prada Luna Rossa Sport, Terre d'Hermes, Mr. Burberry, Versace Dylan Blue, and a few others that I can't remember off the top of my head. Dior felt the most balanced out of the bunch, very fresh, rich scent. Prada Luna Rossa Sport was nice, but on my skin seemed very generic and powdery, though projection was good. Terre d'Hermes read as a bit too mature for me, though it is beautiful and I can see its appeal-- reminded me of a less floral The Different Company Sel de Vetiver (which I frequently buy decants of and love).

I liked Versace Dylan Blue a lot actually, but decided against it after wearing it a few days and noticing that the sillage and dry-down were not as good as Dior. Dylan Blue is somewhat similar to Dior, and I notice an incense note in the dry down that I like, but it's weaker and lacks the peppery edge of Dior. It also only lasted about 6 hours for me vs. 12+ of Dior.

I'm actually not crazy about the Dior initial smell/top notes; it's the dry down that sold me. It's warm and robust yet still fresh and goes between "cool" and "warmth"; love it. It does garner compliments and my boyfriend essentially made me buy it after smelling it on me after work.

I'm okay with it, because Dior, while mainstream, does smell balanced, is a great value (something this strong for an EDT leads me to believe my 2 oz bottle will last me weeks and weeks), and I can wear to work and on weekends. It's a rich, distinctly masculine fragrance that may be "done before" but stands out as balanced, fresh, very long lasting, and versatile.

NOTE - definitely exercise caution when applying this fragrance. The bottle is very nice and allows for smaller spritzes, so for me, I apply a "half" spritz on my chest, "half" spritz on top of each wrist, and maybe one additional "half" spritz on the back of my neck. I find this to be PLENTY and would recommend starting small!

I got a good deal on a full bottle through Jet.com; they have a 15% off coupon for your first 3 orders and their shipping was very fast.

The opening is quite something. Fresh, uplifting and Aventus-y.

After about half an hour it dries down to a mixture of generic shower gel and laundry powder (but not in an entirely bad way).

This is the type of frag which will smell really good in the air as opposed to close up on your skin, where it can smell quite harsh and piercing.

Ultra-modern.

You guys are literally ridiculous!! Are we on a fragrance forum, or are we in preschool with a bunch of whiny toddlers?! I'm legit confused at this point. I have never in my life seen a bunch of grown adults obsessing over a FRAGRANCE and behaving like a bunch of bitches. Seriously.

On another note, this frag is incredibly sexy on a man. I would love for my husband to wear it, but he's sadly not into that. Highly recommend for any man who wants to smell sexy as hell!

Dior Sauvage,

Look at you, you're such a naughty in disguise. Look at how you stir the chaos here. You become a hot gossip now, the people who don't like you talks about you and the people who loves you (that includes me) talks even more about you.

Hmmm, your simplicity, non stuffy & uncomplicated scent is indeed dangerous.

100ml of Dior Sauvage is a blessing but 200ml of this juice is just pure heaven which I own now (yaasss baby).

Thumbs up to the review below for quoting Joan Jett!
Comparing Dior Homme and Sauvage is like comparing mustard to ketchup.
This is the number 1 best selling fragrance of 2016 so it must be doing something right. I don't wear this one myself as I prefer Dior Homme but I admire the composition and enjoy smelling this on others on a hot day.

I'm really somewhat taken aback by what I'm seeing here. It's almost as bad as the split over the president!

I'd like to make an observation or two if I may;

First, many of the reviewers that do not like sauvage are ardent fans of Dior Homme. This makes perfect sense in that the two Fragrances are not of the same type. If a person likes, say, scents that have Woodsy musky notes, they're not likely to be head over heels for citrus or florals. So it follows that since DH and DS are completely different, there's going to be a lot of people that like one and not the other. Different strokes for different folks as the song went.

Which brings me to my second point;
If we step back in time a few decades, say, when that song was made, before the internet, and online reviews, we find ourselves in a different world.
In that world, you went to the Macy's or Saks or wherever, and you asked for samples or testers. If you liked a Fragrance, you bought it (providing you could afford it!), Took it home and wore it wherever and whenever it suited you. If you liked the way it smelled, it lasted a bit, and others seemed to like it, you bought it again maybe.

And that, my friends, was it. No fighting. No character assassination. No need to defend your preferences.

Maybe it's time to just like it, love it or hate it, which ever way the wind is blowing for you, and let others do the same.

Nice fragrance, yet an ordinary one.
It is not memorable. Quite mainstream. One would like it, but may as well forget and never re-purchase it again.

Even the fragrance name does not imply it is.
Well, they would not name a fragrance "Ordinary"..would they?!

@Ewanmacteagle: I did not single him out! I used a phrase that could be applied to anyone who feels he or she must "attack" or "defend" a scent. My guess is that he felt he needed to respond (over and over again) because readers would think he is the prime example, but why would they think that? Could it be because it might be an accurate description? I think it's time for Fragrantica to only allow one post per member on these review pages. Then the person can just keep adding to that one post, rather than subjecting readers to these endless and irritating "it's terrible," "no, it's great," "no, it's terrible," "no, it's great" exchanges. This has become absurd and I have confidence the Fragrantica owners or moderators will intervene and "clean up" this situation. I also don't think reviews should disappear if voted down. Instead, they should be deleted if there is something offensive posted, or the number of "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" should be displayed, so that we can see how many agree and how many disagree with what the person has to say.

But this is not the appropriate forum for trying to convince others of your rightness, Oudy. By contrast, I have been interested in trying to figure out Sauvage from different angles, so to speak (since I'm not a fan of it either). For example, if Dior needs to market this kind of "mass appeal" scent so that they can also release one like Leather Oud, shouldn't we be glad that Sauvage has become so popular? It sounds to me like you are a rather opinionated and closed-minded person, Oudy, because if it wasn't Sauvage there would be some other major crowd pleasing scent that you and I would probably not wear. Why not look on the bright side here? Let the youngsters have their fun, or think that this scent will bring them all kinds of wonderful things. Anyone with a little common sense can see what the reality is, which is that it might indeed smell pleasant to certain demographics, but at some point it will become "played out" due to its popularity and there will be another to take its place. How long will it take before Sauvage is said to be old, too mature, too common, etc.? In fact, some have already said it's too popular!

I didn't mention you by name, Oudy, and I have never voted down a negative review of Sauvage unless it contained a personal attack. If you don't think you suffer from Sauvage Derangement Syndrome, then go ahead and do what you think is appropriate. You can call me all the names you want, but others will decide for themselves. I would like people to ask one obvious question, which is: are you adding anything useful to the discussion, are you saying something new that might be helpful to someone? If not, isn't it time to move on?

Looks like we've got a few cases of "Sauvage Derangement Syndrome" here! When I read a review, I want to know something about what the scent smells like, and for the same people to keep coming here to say the same things, and not speak to the scent itself (or to reiterate exactly what they said in previous posts to this page) is simply inappropriate behavior. It suggests immaturity, a lack of reasonable boundaries, and a loss of emotional control. I advise these people to look inward before continuing to post the same things here!

@ oudy lol hey man i dont know how this website works. Not my fault. I'm just writing what i think. And what i think is that Sauvage is a mass pleasing perfum that really performs well in a day in age where all fragrances are waterdowned and only last 4 hours. This stuff is so long lasting that two days after wearing it my chick could smell something that smelled " great" from my coat everytime i moved it . And that i can appreciate . Is it the most innovating scent ever? No . Does it smell nice and performs. Hell yea.

You gotta be careful with how much you're spraying with this thing. Could be a massive issue. Cause i really cant see how anyone could ever dislike the smell. I can only see it happening when you over spray. And personally i would never wear this to work, its too bright and projects like crazy. If you do wear it to work, maybe one spray. But other than over spraying, i dont see how this could offend anyone ever. But again I dont wear this to work cause its too sharp. Something like BDC thats a bit lighter, and doesnt project as much is a safer work scent . And when going out clubbing or out on the town, this thing is fantasic . Girls really do love this stuff. You cant expect a girl whos into female fragrances to ALSO be into male fragrances and somehow have a "deep" or more "knowlegdable" nose. Its not realistic. That has to be less than 10 percent of the female population

@frample I have no idea what you're possibly talking about. Are you basing your opinion on what girls like by what they write on a forum? People say girls love Sauvage off of personal face to face expereinces . Not what a random girl writes on a perfume forum. I personally enjoy the sent and women love it as well. I think people overestimate how much knowledge the general population has about fragrances . Especially in the U.S. Most guys dont wear anything in this country, so when you smell fresh, clean and bright, girls are going to like it. Say what you want about this fragrance, but its super versitile , and smells good. The hate this gets is because the Dior lovers who are use to a super Iris bomb from Dior are upset. Its ok guys, you have your DHI's and DHP where you can smell like an expired lip stick. But to say somehow that most women like that smell over what is just a clean freshy, is completely wrong.

Thanks a lot, but I know perfectly what Dior is. Please don't humiliate me... lol

I stated a fact. Any person with a minimum of fragrance knowledge would exactly say the same. Dior Sauvage is nothing special. It's generic. That is a fact. Do I hate it? No, but i don't love it either.
Huh... I don't know what you're talking about. I'm a millenial and i prefer DH 1000000 times over DS, and that's an understatement. So you're wrong. As a matter of fact, it happens to be one of my favorite fragrances. Plus, I don't like Dior Fahrenheit, but in general terms it's definitely a better fragrance than sauvage because, unlike Sauvage, it's at least different and much more original for sure. So try to do better next time.

By the way, sorry for hurting your feelings... I've seen you typing several times in the thread already and replying some people who don't agree with you. You ok...? You shouldn't take a scented water too serious man... That's unhealthy.

Have a good day everyone.

Wore this to work today. After a refresh spray mid-day, I walked into my office and my female co-worker, from across the room, said: "I smell soap, like a soapy smell." Another co-worker came into the room and noticed the fragrance right away, so great sillage. He hinted that it smelled like a teenage fragrance. I do think it hints of a soap-like fragrance. Not one of my favorite fragrances but the above-average sillage was confirmed.

People comparing this to Dior Homme... Are you serious? What the hell is going on with this community? Some people just have no clue about how to appreciate real gems.

Dior sauvage is a total crowd-pleasing and generic fragrance. Nothing to write home about. Yes, it does have a pleasant and clean scent, but there's nothing special nor unique in it at all. The only strengths are its incredible versatility (the most versatile fragrance i've ever checked out) as well as it's a high compliment getter. It's not a bad fragrance, but it's definitely overrated by the fanboys and underrated by the haters. I don't know but i feel like people love it just because it's a great compliment getter... I respect it, but compliments are not my priority. I wouldn't wear a fragrance if I myself don't love it in the first place. As i said before, it's not a bad fragrance, but not great either.

Dior Homme is an authentic masterpiece with a classy and unique scent which completely made history and made a difference in the fragrance world. It changed the concept of what a masculine fragrance is. Just pure elegance, uniqueness and quality in a bottle. Period.

However, and considering the fact that we're talking about one of the most, if not the most glorious and prestigious fragrance house as Dior, Sauvage is not a solid Dior fragrance. Deal with it.

Stop hating on this! Sauvage has done wonders for me. I only use 2 sprays max in the summer months. 3 MAX in the colder weather. Yes it has a generic vibe going on to appeal to the masses but it still screams quality. Its my 2nd go to in the summer. Women love this stuff. Strangers. Your mother. Your grandmother. You name it, people love it. On my skin, its a bit darker and seductive. Not as bright after an hour. Which I like my scents not too bright and sharp. Every guy should have a bottle of this.

Sauvage

I actually like this, it's very fresh, inviting and inoffensive. Some of the reviews here lead me to believe that satan himself concocted this and I'll probably burn in perfume hell for liking this lol but oh well. The first 5 minutes on my skin smell identical to Bleu de Chanel but once it settles it makes its own path but still remains in that warm, clean and citrusy territory, it's not groundbreaking but it is no way a bad scent. Great projection and the staying power is excellent both on clothes and skin.

..BEWARE, FREE, UNPOPULAR THOUGHT AHEAD...IF YOU CANT DEAL WITH IT OR IT INVADES YOUR SAFEZONE MOVE ON. DONT THUMBS DOWN SO NO ONE ELSE CAN READ IT, JUST KEEP SCROLLING

Below is someone else's words that sum up this travesty better than I could....


"Sauvage begins with bergamot so disfigured and diluted by alcohol/chemicals it smells cheap and abrasive (like a Whole Foods "natural" household cleaner). Sauvage's opening leads to a stale ozone and generic fruit accord that mingles with Ambroxan (delivering some pale, faux-wood aromas, with a hint of powder and meek muskiness). Sauvage smells unnatural, "plain," frugal. I'm betting 99.9 percent of Sauvage's budget went to Johnny Depp's salary and to advertising expenses"

This is the perfume equivalent of Jersey Shore or the kardashians or take your pick scripted, stupid reality television. All looks and ZERO substance. The bottle is nice, and the advertising is expensive, but what's actually IN the bottle is junk. Just because many profess to like it, doesn't mean it's any good. Since when does mass appeal count for anything?

But even the generic nature of this perfume can't hold a candle to the generic, unbelievable fan boy comments that this perfume inspires. "It's a panty dropper" "ladies love it(yeah they also love hotdogs but I doubt they would rub them all over themselves...well maybe some)" its lasts literally days"....blah blah blah...and there is always a caveat it seems..."well it doesn't last on my skin and its not unique and I don't like the smell but random people have flown in from Canada just to tell me how good I smell so in that case it's a masterpiece...though I wouldn't wear it for myself"...ok that last one I made up to illustrate a point. That you should smell this for yourself instead of listening to obvious rhetoric. Some people actually do love this perfume and that's ok.

Scent 2/10...it's just so pathetically ordinary and plastic smelling. Palmolive dish soap with a hint of creamy burnt match and old gone off makeup. I even went and got another sample to see if perhaps I've had it all wrong on this...but no...it's really really bad. I hate it. My wife says it's undetectable unless she hugs me and then she wrinkled her nose and said " you smell like an orangey air freshener. These were unsolicited remarks
Projection 4/10...it does have a bit more silliage than my original trial run bore out. But honestly with this smell, that's not a good thing
Fortitude 2/10...fans of this fawn on about how this lasts for "days"...I don't see it. I've tried it many times and reapplied/used lotion, and it's gone...every time, in 90 minutes. It's one redeeming quality is that it disappears so quickly.
Full bottle worthy...in my opinion, absolutely not. If people keep supporting these obvious attempts of marketing strategy to see what people will waste their money on then we will keep getting such disdainful efforts like Sauvage.

Well, I'm not sure what all the 'hate' reviews are about. Maybe some folks with jaded noses need a more obscure scent from a niche house to trigger their olfactory centers . On the other hand, perhaps this fragrance does evoke a strong response. You either love it or hate it. With sauvage by Dior, I find myself solidly in the love camp. This scent comes on with more complexity than most reviews give it credit for, has an incredible dry down that's very intriguing and lasts pretty much all day. What's not to love? This is my new go-to fragrance. It works anywhere and I believe it'll go for more than just one season.
There's always going to be some people who's body chemistry just isn't right for a scent like this, but I can see this fragrance being around for awhile.
Maybe the haters just don't like Johnny Depp?

When I first smelled this fragrance I thought there wasn't anything special about it, but half a year later I gave it another chance, sprayed it on a test strip and pocketed it. I pulled it out hours later and I was amazed at how much I liked the scent, so I cracked and ended up purchasing it.

Almost tempted to buy it last month at Sephora with price MYR585 for the limited edition 200ml sizes but I hold my patient and tell myself to wait who knows I might bump into good deals.

My prayer was answered when one of my friend who is also a perfume dealer based in Singapore informed me that he just got new perfume stocks arrived and he have the same 200ml limited edition size Dior Sauvage.

Pricing at MYR440 only comparing to Sephora price MYR585, that's like MYR145 differences. Good deal indeed ! So for those perfume lover here from Malaysia if any of you interested, i'll be glad to help you to get this. Just PM me.

Okay about the perfume, I love it. I know it's lack of complexity or not a groundbreaking scent but it has it own shine and I'm in love with it on the first sniff.

Sometimes simplicity is better than complexity. Beside, not everyone is a perfume expert or perfume art addict. So to them something that smells clean or calming and not too stuffy is a good scent.

Both Dior Sauvage and Giorgio Armani's Acqua Di Gio Profumo are office-friendly and high-compliment-getting fragrances. You cannot go wrong with either. Both are 10 out of 10 fragrances and despite the difference in concentration (Sauvage is an EDT, ADG Profumo an EDP), they have similar projection and longevity. That said, if you must choose between them, I would recommend Sauvage. Albeit the unwarranted hate it has received, Sauvage is a remarkably pleasing fragrance, disliked only by fragheads whose greatest critique is that it is either generic or synthetic--neither of which when referring to fragrances means "stinky" or "smells bad." With Sauvage, Dior made a mass-appealing fragrance that hooks with you the first notes and holds you firmly in an olfactory embrace. Again, with the exception of fragheads, the overwhelming majority of people you encounter will love this fragrance.

Similarly, Acqua Di Gio Profumo smells sublime. It has the historically and wildly popular Acqua Di Gio DNA with beefed-up depth, projection, and longevity. If Acqua Di Gio is the major leagues, ADG Profumo is the all-star team.

In sum, both fragrances are fantastic, will get you compliments, and are well worth the money. By a razor's edge, Sauvage edges ADG Profumo, but both are worth having.

To me, it seems there are two crowds with this one. The crowd that hates it and the crowd that likes it for the compliment factor. Me? I think it's okay. Kind of like the movie on TV that is just entertaining enough that you watch it through, but wouldn't pay to see in the cinema.

The scent is rather interesting at first. Without seeing the note breakdown, I figured this to be a fresh, citrusy scent. But upon applying I got a spicy, somewhat sweet amber vibe out of it. The longevity surprised me somewhat, as I know someone who wears it constantly, and the fact that I can barely detect it on him. Projection is average. Stays in its bubble throughout.

This scent is okay on its own, but really pales in comparison to Dior's other offerings. If Dior Homme is Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, Dior Sauvage is Johnny Depp in Mortdecai who is tired of his shit.

6/10 - The price is definitely not justified as you're paying 80 dollars plus for juice that is just okay. A good alternative is Acqua di Gio Profumo, that gets about the same amount of compliments, is in the same vein as this one, and that you surely will enjoy more yourself

After seeing a review or two on youtube I thought I would try a sample. One single spray two days ago and I thought "wow, thats different" ... I am not keen to the various notes but what I picked up was a sort of dull powdery rose like scent. The uglier way to put it is that it smells like lipstick and caked on makeup but somehow in a good way for a confident male.... I didn't like it so much at first but it started to grow on me.. I have occasional spurts of bold and I was trying to make it work mentally but I have so many other choices in front that no decision was made...

The next day I received a sampler in the mail and one was Love & Luck by Ed Hardy among several others. I thought I would set aside a day and get it out of the way... that stuff had me going wacky in the brain... The reason I mention is that I was immediately reminded of the Sauvage I had on the day before. I decided I would finish out the day with L&L and start off the next day (today) with Sauvage with the point being to decide whether or not I would buy a bottle..

By early today I decided that I would eventually pickup a bottle of DS but it was very far from the top of my list, but now I have completely ruled out DS. Trying these two a day apart had me confused. After spraying on a heavier dose I am completly worn out from the notes. I was quite eager to take a shower by mid afternoon but decided to try another spray of L&L. The L&L helped mask this with a few sweeter notes and that made me feel better. L&L does smell cheaper but I would take the mental effect from it anyday over DS. I would be afraid of a spray of DS from a large bottle. It might be for some people but I don't care if it puts supermodels into a coma, I cannot stand it long enough to consider it an enjoyable experience.. call me selfish.

PERHAPS ITS TOO STRONG?!*$

They both remind me of lipstick but I prefer the L&L as my go to "be very different" scent. I actually ordered the L&L from ebay last night and feel like I will go to it on my more aggressive evenings, as rare as they might be. I'm not even sure what I mean by that - Maybe I will become and investor and take it to the casino. The two have a very similar note, and I don't know what it is but L&L dresses it up nicer and is quite complex, maybe the most complex fragrance I have ever sprayed... DS is the same from start to finish.

I would say that its a very mature scent and maybe brilliant for some people, but not for yours truly. With that said I am eager to try more from some of the other Dior Collections..

Sorry Dior but I have to pass on this one.

I tested this scent today after learning about on YouTube. What was said mostly is that it's a compliment getter, but definitely not a favorite for themselves. Funny thing is that I don't care much for compliments, I just like to smell like what I think is a nice smell. So I was expecting something that would disappoint me.
On opening I already knew that this is a scent that you do not want to over-apply, so I didn't. Two sprays in the back of my neck was enough and I really liked it. It's not a unique smell, but when applied in a controlled way is has a nice freshness to it. Projection and longevity are quite good. It sends out in a controlled way, not too hard (of course don't apply too much) and I think I got about 6 - 8 hours from it. Not fantastic, not bad either. Overall I like it. Not running to the store to get a bottle, but for a nice price I would definitely pick this one up.

If a simple scent is as peasant as a complicated one and even better, we might be confused, we might be excited, we might be happy, but not disappointed. Unless some people don't like the scent of Sauvage. Cheers!

I had a chance to sample this a few times and in all of them I was amazed by the performance, sillage, longevity and compliments. For inexperienced noses out there it's good, but for some people who really appreciate price per quality of the fragrances, paying full price for this scent it's just not worthy. Most of the Dior men fragrances are really quality products and Sauvage is sitting there like the one which most people love but expect more from a house like Dior. Would make more sense if this was from some other inexperienced house. I would wear this if it was max 50$ for 100ml, otherwise I won't.

This is definitely a bit sharp and synthetic. I get why so many are disappointed by Dior. I smell citrus and lavender which gives it a clean vibe kind of like fabric softener or aftershave.
It is also masculine and woody with a metallic note. That being said, it is versatile and has decent longevity.
I'm a lady and would not mind this on a man but cannot say I would be swooning.

@ Oudy.
Yeah, that's also sad, nobody should put you down for disliking a scent. I have no problem if people don't like Sauvage and like more complex scents. I have no problem either when people say they don't like the scent either because not everyone has the same taste. Some people love rose notes in fragrances, on the other hand, i can hardly stand rose in any of my fragrances.
I just don't think it's right when someone says they love certain scents and others come here and start saying how the scent is garbage and how people who like it have no taste. There was one time when I was putting down Aventus but I realized it makes me stupid for keep giving negative reviews on a scent because others love it Also panty dropper, I don't think any fragrance get the reaction some reviewers claim to get

like I said I like Sauvage I have 2 back up bottles I also have Dior Homme Dior Homme intense ,aventus , To me they all smell great .

I'm not saying that you can't like Niche or barnyard smell. But seems like whoever dislike Sauvage attacking people who love Sauvage or give 10 /10 . Maybe for them Sauvage is crap but saying how people have no clue about fragrances because they thinkSauvage an awesome scent . I wouldn't go on a Fave Delicious review page and call out al;l guys for wearing a women's perfume and they should not wear it because they are guys . I just see too many people here putting down other reviewers for liking this one

Dior Sauvage is a fresh fragrance for sure. Its nice, got me compliments but i think its so over-rated in the community and by the YouTube reviewers (compliments through the roof, u r the man, bad ass boy, bla bla bla....). On my skin it doesn't project, its intimate only very close people near me can smell it. It made me think for a moment that i got a fake bottle but nope, its authentic. Its longevity is moderate, stay for a while but become quickly a skin scent. Its generic, nothing new, just a classy clean fragrance. Doesn't deserve the 72$ for 60ml price, but its a Dior, so u pay for the brand.I wont buy it again honestly and not a big fan of it.

@istvan.buda.779: Not long ago I was called a "niche hater" on BN because I pointed out, as you did, that plenty of niche scents are awfully "chemical" or "synthetic" smelling to me. Also, to many people, especially younger ones, the deodorant aisle at the local supermarket smells totally natural! I think you would be better served by arguing that since "modern perfumery" is based upon a heavy use of aroma chemicals, there's no "sin" if one enjoys a scent that goes a bit further in that direction (as Cool Water did with dihydromyrcenol about 3 decades ago). Those who say it is a blemish on the Dior name are probably not considering the economics of the situation. If they want Dior to release scents like Leather Oud, then the good people at Dior may have to put the Dior name on ones like Sauvage as well. We should just enjoy what we enjoy!

@ Oudy.

Most of the time when people disliking Sauvage I look at the fragrances they like and most of those people have some strong oud scents on the love list or sweet feminine fragrances. So yeah I base my assumption on those people's perfume wardrobe

And I don't care for compliments when I wear Sauvage, I like it because it smells clean and fresh to my nose. Maybe I don't buy niche fragrances so I can not tell if it smells synthetic. I also like Fahrenheit and Dior Homme. I am not a fragrance snob so I don't cry that Dior released a mass pleasing fragrance
Like I said companies are here to make money.

P.S. Why people have no problem when Comme de garcones releasing a fragrance that's nothing but synthetic?

I can't say I fully (or even partially) understand the strong emotions that this scent generates, other than for those who have fond memories of Eau Sauvage and feel that Sauvage is a kind of blemish on Dior's "masterpieces." Those people still surface from time to time, but it seems to me that the criticism is now mostly about how "chemical" Sauvage smells, and since it's strong, that can be an issue for those people. Even many of those who like it don't deny this common impression. To me the drydown (which is what I mostly care about) is a bit too "tight" for being so "chemical," and so I think it would be best as a room spray, but why should anyone care, one way or the other (unless perhaps they factor in my reviews when deciding upon a blind buy)?

If you wear it for compliments and get compliments, that's great. If you wear it for "panty dropping" purposes and believe that this works, I guess that's good (not sure about what that might do to the STD rates, though). If you like the way it smells and wear it for personal enjoyment, good for you! But who cares if others don't like it? I know a lot of people don't like some of the scents I enjoy. I never think I need to "defend" the scent against those who don't like it. If someone makes a claim that I think it ridiculous, then I often address that on my blog, but everyone has a right to like certain smells but not others. Who can force you to like a smell you don't like? Perhaps the most perplexing thing is that if you want to wear Sauvage wouldn't you want all other guys to dislike it so that you would smell unique (and apparently very appealing to young women)? Could that be where some of the criticism is originating (meaning it's fake)? Something just doesn't make sense here!

why are people hating on this fragrance? i bought it recently and i haven't sprayed it on me yet except for on the card at the store. I FELL IN LOVE!!! The sent on card lasted for 2 days!! Yes, it does smell like fresh laundry, but the woody base makes up for it.

I can't wait to wear it, but i'll save it for special occasions. And when i do, i can already hear the compliments pouring in.

This is a GREAT fragrance to add to your collection...can't go wrong.

People blame Dior for creating this one. But your average customer doesn't care about artistic scents. It's like music, most people prefer cookie cutter pop and rock music over orchestra
Companies will produce things that sell. Everyone talking about how great the classic Sauvage line is, for me they smell old and outdated, it isn't suitable Guys under 35 . Sauvage is the young guy version of the Eau Savage

Amazing, amazing amazing!! This stuff is a fruity classy summer in the bottle. Strong yet invigorating, cooling and fresh and it lasts. It has that Dior signature in it, that can be found in Homme line, cologne... But this one does it better than anything else fresh Dior has. I know people love the artistic side of Homme and Eau Sauvage has it's cult status. But, why hate so much on a simple mass market pleaser??? I mean, Eau Sauage will always be there, both versions. Dior Homme line will always be there. Why do we need another artistic one? So what if Dior made this and the sale numbers show how successful it is. So why wouldn't Dior make something that everyone loves, apart from fragheads, and it sells. I don't like pretty much of anything that Dior has done in the past. But this one sits AMAZINGLY with me!!

You all who hate on it, give it a break!! One frag you dislike from Dior... so what, you keep on loving the rest. And it's not like this is the end of Dior. They will release something for the fans in the future. But Sqauvage sells, a lot of people loves it and it is here to stay just like BdC is the main seller for Chanel. Despite all other amazing frags they have released.

This is immense.

Worn twice, it has been commented on positively on both occasions with questions as to what it is.

Just when I think it's faded, someone else comments.

I can't stop sniffing myself!

Widely available in department stores and shops like Boot etc (UK) so no need to blind buy, go and sniff a tester.

Despite the many negative reviews, i find Dior Sauvage is really really good scent, i use it on a daily basis i guess, my colleagues at work love it, and it gets me compliments, it's very versatile scent, it easily lasts 8 hours on my skin, it's not overpowering scent yet people will detect its presence, i don't care if it's synthetic or whatsoever, it's all about if you find it good, then buy it, don't follow the hype whether it's good or bad, because at the end of the day it's a matter of taste.

Dior Sauvage is a weird scent. I find that for the wearer's nose, Dior Sauvage smells like a synthetic modern day barbershop scent with heavy spice but for some reason it turns into a crowd pleaser to those around the wearer. Not all barbershop scents are crowd pleasers like oh say Davidoff Cool Water or Jean Paul Gauthier Le Male and now Dior Savuage is.

I cannot explain it at all. To my nose, it is pretty much a higher priced Ed Hardy Villain with the overly peppery scent that combines with the similarly smelling soapy Salvatore Ferragamo F Black just made more synthetic. I smell tested this on a strip and smelt a pungent spicy smell to it. I skin tested and it has the same smell to me. I find that for the price, it's a real pass due to the typical pricing, unless you want a "hey look at me scent" or can buy it on the cheap.

It's definitely a scent that needs to grow on you BUT it is a scent that you shouldn't buy it for retail prices.

Nice fragrance,but overall nothing special.very overpriced for what is it,because Dior.fresh vibe of mentos and shaving foam.drydown is similar do aqva amara,which is much more interesting freshie imho.i tried larive extreme story,and as o copy of sauvage is better option(5 euros),smells very identical with good longevity and less projection.in general,these new kinds trendy fragrances are pathetically boring,quantity over quality,when it ends.

Amazing fragrance, it lives up to the hype.
This has to be one of my favourite fragrances that I constantly seem to be going to. I have a large collection yet still go for Sauvage when I need my best. There are other fragrances and then there is Dior Sauvage, this stuff is next level/top of the tier stuff.

Projection: 10 I sprayed this on at 9am and at 4pm I had people asking who smells good and I was 10-20 metres away from them.

Smell: 10 This is a very good smelling fragrance and has that "I want to smell it again" effect.

Longevity: 10 Out of the large collection I have, this lasts all day.

Overall: 10! This is one of the best in the world and for good reason.

Decent scent, not crazy about it, its definitely masculine and I get a similar opening with Aventus by Creed. I think this perfume is very hyped and it is the number one sold fragrance in my country. If you want to smell like everyone else go for it, otherwise explore there are better frags at a much better price available. Tom Ford has some nice frags at cheaper price and you don't risk to smell like half of the people around you.

Scent: 8/10
Longevity: 6/10
Sillage: 7/10
Cost ratio: 3/10

Overall: 6/10

Overhyped frag at a steep price for a designer. Avoid following the flock and explore other frags out there.

@hopey - If your cap rotates when it's on, you probably have a fake. The magnets in the cap should be polarized, so that the Dior logo always lines up with the front of the bottle. Fragrantica will not allow me to post a link, however if you search "Fake fragrance - Sauvage by Christian Dior" on YouTube, you will see an example, 32 minutes long, demonstrating some of the differences on one particular fake. Chanel does this same thing on Bleu De Chanel.

IMPORTANT!!

Today I saw a 200 ml bottle at Dillard's with a cap that clicks by locking the bottle. My 100 ml Sauvage at home has a strong magnetic cap which doesn't click so you can rotate the cap.

Is it a usual difference between the bottle sizes, or did a reformulation happen???

I went to the mall hyping myself up to buy Sauvage taking all the positive feed back and tried to ignore the negative feed back.

before I purchased I sprayed it on my hand and walked around the mall for a bit ( did this previously and ended up going with BdC over this ) and decided to not purchase this.

coincidentally at the time the sales women had me sample Polo green condemning it as her more intolerable fragrance. And after thinking about it for a while having the horrible smell of Polo green still on my mind. I've come to the conclusion that Sauvage is a modern, younger take of Polo Green.

This wouldn't be the case if the Citrus Opening proceeded throughout the dry down but consequently it does not. At first I thought it was just Ambroxan, but The patchouli is is also fairly dominate though less so in Sauvage. The lack of other notes compared to polo green helps make this fragrance modern (I like the lack of leather and musk).

I think some people may enjoy this scent, I however really dislike the similarities this has with polo green enough to bat away the " yes new fragrance time! " monkey I had. It's way to liner after the first 10 minutes to the end and it's to simple for me to spend Dior cash on this.

IMO if you want something truly special from Dior Fahrenheit ,Dior Homme and Dior Homme intense are great fragrances though less versatile in comparison to Sauvage.

im going to reverse engineer my review on this by starting out with the sillage. If you want people to smell you, if you want to be complimented or atleast approached as a conversation starter, this is perfect. It wont clear a house but it will get notice and will garner attention. The fact it's Dior will get you brownie points with some. people who are familiar with it will immediately start diving into conversation. it's a popular scent with most, especially those who are use to only certain scents and designer fragrances.


Longevity always changes from person to person. On me, I can get a day or night's worth out of 3-4 sprays with great projection. It's something that definitely sticks around my clothes for a long period of time but suprisingly just as long on my skin. I do not get that with most scents outside of musky or oud scents.

Far as the notes go, the "soapy/clean/fresh" scent many come to find in this really, to me anyways, is set off by the blend of bergamot, vetiver, and a blend of pepper and lavender. Ties it to this scent that doesnt quite have its own stage. it's not the spring, it's not the winter, it's not the fall or the summer. it seems to be all tied together in one ball that just kindve sits within all 4 seasons. which keeps this a very versatile fragrance. i can appreciate that.

If you can find a deal on it, buy it. other than that, i think the price tag is high for what it is but it is a Dior fragrance and people will buy by popularity in name over anything. which is fine, to each there own. I personally bought a bottle about 30 dollars off retail price. well worth it.


now my personal thoughts on this. fits right in with dior. from the bottle (which is fantastic btw), to the scent, to the longevity and sillage, Dior is consistent in those aspects which garners attention. The scent comes at you as fresh. Clean. yet with just enough personality. I honestly think this fragrance should have more the way it was marketed. little disappointed in that aspect, however, this is a great scent, for anytime of day or night or setting. it will garner compliments and attention of everyone around you and enjoyable enough for you that you dont want to scrub it off immediately.


Definitely a buy. 8.5/10

To each his or her own, but for me Dior Sauvage is a masterpiece, and one that will always have a place in my collection. Without question, it is the fragrance I reach for when I want to project confidence, get compliments, and just smell great. When I finish off my 100ml bottle, I will be buying the 200ml.

i did not smell this eau the toilette for a long time because im not a fan of johnny depp and the hype created on it was very confusing. then, the first time i smelled it i sprayed on the wrist and i thought "it's ok..." but the girl with me said "wow, it's great!". some hours later i met my mother and she said " this fragrance it's fantastic!". so, as i have respect for women in fragrance matter i thought i have to smell Sauvage with more attention. the second time i payed more attention and i have to agree with them...this scent is great! very good opening, but the drydown is very gorgeous, fresh with something deep, seductive. maybe the most complimented fragrance i ever wore. this scent is appreciated more from girls than men, and the bottle is very cool. it's not unique, i know, but it's very attractive and longevity and sillage are more than moderate(finally!). better for spring and summer, for every occasion but for dates it's a safe choise. i bought sauvage and im very happy to have it in my little collection. please dont reformulate it !!!!

longevity: 8,5

SAUVAGE VS BLEU DE CHANEL

many people compare sauvage with bdc. they are similar but not the same, however they play in the same league. both are not so unique, a little bit synthetic but have something more than many fragrances that u cant explain easily. bdc is more classy but sauvage has something in the drydown more seductive and edgy, remaining still clean and invigorating. the performance of sauvage is better, very long lasting and projective. so my pick is sauvage but bdc is a great product, safe and solid.

grazie per l'attenzione!!

Very dry and bitter ..prickely peppery and soapy ..cuts through everyone else's mediocrity like the alpha male of modern fragrances ..great performance and one of the best modern sillage in perfumery. The advert campaign perfectly reflects the scent ..dry landscapes ...unforgiving cloudless sky's and sharp cactus. Comparable to chanel bleu but a more raw and edgy version with bags more attitude.

This is one of my all time favourite male fragrances, Dior got it so right. It's not too strong and yet the notes are just perfect. I love that is smells different on people and could almost certainly be a unisex fragrance. It smells so manly on a man yet still divine on a female.

If you haven't tried it I would certainly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Beautiful

As a high-schooler, Dior Sauvage really fitted me great! Amazing compliments and great versatility all year long. Very nice fresh quite spicy opening , that tones down into a heavenly smooth ambroxan note , which the ladies really love! Good sillage and good longetivity too, the only problem is that it is very worn these day, and not very unique and original to wear

This is an OK fragrance for a designer brand, though it could use an extreme version. Its got a Lil edge that smells very nice but quality is absent (no depth) needs smoke or Oud to add character but as I add sandalwood it comes to life. easy does it and the synthetic smell is gone. Not just wow

So, I'll give my opinion. Yes I like this fragrance. I don't love it but my wife does.
This is one that is more for those around you and not the wearer. Since I bought I have received an extreme amount of love on it.
That's crazy for a scent that wouldn't even make my top 10.

Is it generic, yeah.
Is it synthetic, yep.
Is it a good scent, yes it is.

My ratings
Scent 7.5/10
Projection 9. My best projector is Amouage interlude. This projects about 3 feet maybe a little more but interlude fills a stadium
Sillage 10
Compliment factor 10

Its got this aventus vibe in the air though aventus is better than this. But I see similarities. Not my fave but loved by others.

This fragrance is a mystery.. the first time i try it, i said ok. I saw for 2nd time the bottle to be sure that this glue smell was a dior fragrance. After a week i waiting walking with a friend and a slight trail of somthing real contrast make starting siffing. Something was smelli zesty/sour and the same time a bit sweet. It was very refreshing for this sunny day. I asked my friend what he was wearing and he aswer me i dont know the name it is jonhy dephs cologne he said me. I smelt his wrist( where he spray it) and i cant smell something. However for 15cm distance i can detected and was strong.. it is so weird fragrance.
Anyway yes women love it and why? Because is quality modern version of old school materials. It something that is missing from the nowadays men fragrance word.
When fragrance industry trend to bold heavy and suropy sweet Francois Dimanchy made an old school fragrance with a bit sweetness. Very clever movement.
Between 1 million , dior homme and other suropy and smooth men cologne , dior sauvage is a modern Alpha Male. The geranium remings a bit of Platinum egoist

So fresh and zesty, a bit spicy too. And in the middle you can definitely feel some woods. And I have never smelt a fragrance so icy and cold. So refreshing. Not one of my favorites though but I think it is a good blend. It is very strong, ladies love it and it does the job.

Times: day and night and all seasons also, very versatile
Places and reasons: more inclined to a casual wear like job, school, right after you got out of shower, selling stuff for men :D (kind of gives the impression of masculine confidence but in a modest way, not pretentious or fancy)

2/3/17 Well, well, well! I just got my 200ml bottle in the mail and I couldn't be happier. This is a great masculine fragrance. This is another modern classic by Dior. It smells good on and smells even better in the air from it's sillage. I have only smelled this once or twice while in the mall a few months ago, but I decided then that I needed to add this gem to my collection. I sprayed it in my office (my packages come to my workplace) and had ladies running in sniffing the air and stating they would love for their man to smell like Sauvage. This is definitely a crowd pleaser. I careless that Dior took a chance or didnt on this fragrance, it is a WINNER. I dont get any Bleu or Aventus in this at all. I would disregard those claims if I were you. Recommended on a scale 1 - 10, I give it a solid 8 maybe 8.5. Happy Sniffing.

My husband wears and loves Sauvage - and I adore it on him! It's lovely. Very fresh, luminous and grand. Very very wonderful. It lasts very well, at least 12 hours, and he only puts 2 sprays on in the morning, and I can even smell it on him in bed that night! It's really a great perfume. Very natural smelling, and has a lovely contrast of cool and crisp, against warm, smoky and leathery. And sweet and sour and herby. It has a lovely patchouli smell, and gorgeous lavender. We love it! And he gets compliments all the time from men and women.
And the bottle is so handsome!!!

My fiance wears this gorgeous men's fragrance. It is his favorite. My favorite on him is actually Guerlain's Habit Rouge. All the women we know young and old love this too. They hug him a little longer. I don't mind. Enjoy ladies. I have not one bad thing to say about Sauvage. It wears like a dream on him and is long lasting. It is smooth, warm and dreamy as has been stated here numerous times. It is a very polarizing fragrance but then the good ones usually are. I give it a 10/10.

Im still in love with this amazing juice, i own Zara Aromatic Future and Dior Sauvage too... this guys are very similar, but the only difference is the ambroxan note and the performance. Zara aromatic future smells more sporty without the ambroxan note and it last less than Sauvage. In conclution Sauvage have better sillage and proyection as far and it smells better with that amazing ambroxan note that Aromatic Future doesent own.

Sauvage:

bottle: 10/10
scent: 10/10
proyection: 8/10
sillage: 9/10
price: expensive but you wont regret it

Bottom line is sauvage smells pretty good,not excellent, but good enough to get tons of complements and bring the ladies in closer. It does smell synthetic at first but after a half hour its beast. I tried one spray before work and this ain't an office job and it lasted all day from 6am till 8pm. Its a beast and people will notice .random ladies keep handing out compliments on this and I've only had it 4 days. Only major downfall is the price and for the record the sprayer is excellent!

The name does not evoke the smell. This is more sweet than wild. It is a very pleasant and uplifting blend of a light non-gourmandish sweetness and a not quite soapy freshness with long lasting longevity. Perfect medium projection to make people notice but not overwhelm them. There may be better overall smelling ones out there but the performance clinches it for me. It stayed on clothes for days. My favorite for the past few months and perhaps the whole of 2017.

More affordable alternative will be Bvlgari Atlantiqve (aquatic, salty). Even cheaper will be Zara Aromatic Future (more synthetic, lesser performance). I also get close similarities with Zara W/END Till 3:00 am (actually a closer clone than Aromatic Future in my nose).

Im not saying that this smells bad, in fact it does smell quite nice; like when you have a nice floor cleaner that surrenders the house with a pleasant aroma. do i want to smell like a nice floor cleaner? no thank you.

i keep my opinion:

If you want to be robbed or if you are quite pretentious and like to throw money arround, making a stupid purchase: go get this fragrance.

When I was 18 the Marshall Mathers LP had just dropped. I loved it. My friends loved it. Except one song. The first single from the album.'Hi my name is'. Massive hit. My friends hated it because the main stream loved it and they'd spent all their teen years trying to distance themselves from the main stream as much as possible. That's Dior Sauvage. Wannabe connoisseurs trying to convince themselves it's a terrible fragrance.

@angelo Thank you! I think sometimes commercially successful colognes get mistreated here. There's a reason it's popular. It's good!!

@HurAcraft I had a lover who liked to shave his legs, arms and chest. He was Italian and really hairy. I used to help him get the back of his thighs because he was rather muscular and had a hard time maneuvering to reach. Although, I felt having a woman shave his legs was a bit of a kink he had and I was happy to oblige him. I know some male swimmers and runners who shave their legs as well. I suppose they think it makes them more aerodynamic. Maybe it does, what do I know.

There's nothing wrong with wearing a cologne because it garners you compliments. There's nothing wrong with a man shaving his legs for himself or his lover. There's nothing wrong with a woman not shaving either. It's 2017, we can all do what we want!
What do you care why people choose the fragrances they do? Sauvage is a nice scent. Mainstream, yes, but completely pleasant and I quite like it on a man. As some one else said, it ticks all the boxes of a perfect, almost too perfect, men's best selling fragrances. There's a reason for that, it's sexy in a very safe way. The average consumer does not want to be challenged by their fragrance. They want simple crowd pleasers. Sometimes a crowd pleaser is exactly what you need.

Wow, there’s quite a controversy about this scent. I saw a review for it on the sidebar of the homepage and decided to take a look see what others thought of this. As a woman who gravitates toward more unisex than traditionally feminine scents, I like to try out a lot of different things, including men’s fragrances, but I must admit, I tried this one out on a blotter only because Johnny Depp is such eye candy to me and he looked so sexy, I felt I owed it to them to give it a chance. Well, I found it way too masculine for me, but also pretty cliché and “been there done that”, but that doesn’t mean it was bad, just nothing new. I liked it, and frankly guys, if your woman is into you, she’s going to want to eat you up whatever scent you’re wearing, so just wear what you like and be confident doing so – confidence is the biggest attraction there is.

Got this for Christmas a couple years ago when it first came out. It is what it is...a well done and long-lasting designer mall fragrance. The people saying it's the worst scent ever are as ridiculous as the ones who declare it the best. Sauvage will be pleasing to most people unless oversprayed and it's a safe bet for most occasions - it's easy to see why it sells so well to the masses. For a guy who owns one bottle this could be near perfect.

On the other hand, if you are like me - and I would guess most Fragrantica readers are - and you've got a cold cloudy day favorite and a cold sunny day favorite AND a cold rainy day favorite..you just won't ever reach for this.

It's nice and it's clean and it's sufficiently blue and it lasts a hella long time but in the end, even though Sauvage is sorta good at lots of things it isn't the best at anything.

Never understood the hate for this one...Gets compliments from both sexes, lasts 9 hours on my skin and gives me TREMENDOUS projection for the first 5 hours, so i wouldn't wear it at work or office environments, only during summer nights. If you don't like it, then don't use it. I once got 8 compliments in a hot summer night, trully.
My rating is 9/10.

Girls love it. Guys love it. I love it.

After sampling this, I originally decided I wouldn't buy it, but truth be told, I just couldn't avoid it. This fills the gap in my collection between Bleu De Chanel and Creed Aventus or Armaf's Club De Nuit Intense. Moreover, I can wear this scent ANYWHERE, and if I wear it to work, I can wear Aventus after work and it blends perfectly. The textures are different, yes, but the scents are quite similar.

Yes, it's not all that groundbreaking or unique, but it smells good, period! It's clean with a dirty edge. The Downy Unstopables Fresh scent beads that I use (light green/black bottle) smell just like this does in my clean t-shirts. Honestly, I think that's what women like most about it. There is something distinctly manly about it though, from the heavy dose of ambroxan.

Bottom line: If you don't like this fragrance, that's fine. But do you mind smelling it on others? I didn't think so. If you DO like this fragrance, don't pay any mind to those who don't. There's a reason you like it. There's a reason girls like it. There's a reason that so many people like it and that reason is NOT Johnny Depp. It's a good scent! If you like it, wear it.

I think it is a great creation . The bitterness and uncompromising masculinity is what pleases me most.And it's versatility - can be worn four season equally . I don't get so much citrus or pepper, but the elemi resin and ambroxan are playing the big game here with their murky,bitter and dark grey odour ,and patchouli plus some lavender with supporting role , which add some woodiness and freshness.Reminds me the smell of Colophon resin ( Turpentine oil ?) and melting tenol when you soldering. And it is really working with women - some of them ( quite unknown for me) start disturbing my private space more often and without any obvious reason...))) Very interesting fragrance , also very long lasting ( 16 hours on me!), superb sillage and beautiful classical packaging . Well worth the price.

I have now worn Sauvage enough times to know that I like it, a lot.
To me the citrus-y opening is really pleasing and quite masculine. As it dries down, this really begins to remind me of a slightly sweeter Terre d'hermes, the vetiver note I think. I love TdH and also enjoy this.
I can see how this scent is polarising, but at the end of the day, with enough time, I like wearing it and I feel good wearing it. For me that is all that counts.

Its a long lasting fresh and spicy fragrance that is ideal for any ocassion. I catch myself wearing it in the winter sometimes, the pepper engages really thats why, in my opinion, you can wear it anytime you want. Compliment getter, from women and men. Beast projection for 3-4 hours, Lasts more then 8 hours on my skin. Just cant understand the hate about it?! Is it because of Johnny Depp? I think he has too many haters. :))

This, along with that other crowdpleaser BdC, both are very simple stuff. Really nothing to write home about for someone who is into scent and frangrances. I however can see some young lads being very impressed by this kind of scent which -for whatever reason- gets compliments from the average joe on the street but i for my one dont even have to go search in a higher category to find better and more characterful stuff. Sauvage and BdC both are not even the best in their own pretty simple genre.

This is one heck of a fragrance. This really smells so good that people compliment you when they passed by. Longevity is okay since it only lasts for 6-8 hours. However, I prefer 3 sprays only from this as this may actually be cloying when oversprayed. Great fresh scent. Anyone can pull this off. 8/10 for me.

I'm a huge fan of Christian Dior fragrances however, I have to admit that Sauvage is among my least favorite from the house. I've had it for almost a year now and I'm neither here nor there with it.

Like the reviewer below me, it reminds me of a body wash that I use called Gillette Odor Shield. I've owned both Bleu de Chanel and Aventus and see no similarity to either. I think this stands on its own. I don't find the smell generic, just unimaginative and uninspiring as if no creative effort was put into the creation of it.

I get loads of pepper throughout the life of this frag. It opens with a slight citrus and dominant pepper note with a bit of a sweet berry like accord, then flatlines into a clean, woody, musky, peppery scent. I think because of the "ambroxan", there's also a noticable amount of saltyness (pun intended) going on in this frag.

I seem to become a bit anosmic whenever wearing this frag. It's strong in the opening and I can detect it after wearing for some hrs but after a while I could slightly perceive it. I've been told by people that they could smell me at the end of the work day. It's prob the reason why I'm neither here nor there with it.

This is a complete middle of the road frag for me. It's not good but it's not bad either. It will last and project and it's clean. Don't over spray cause that pepper will get ya. I think it's versatile when it comes to an occasion for wearing this however when it comes to applying a rating I feel like this one has me stomped.

Upon first sniff, I really hated this scent, it was such a synthetic, axe body spray-like fragrance that I couldn't care less about. This was a few months ago.

Two days ago I was sniffing around in a shop, and i thought I should give this another try. I don't know what happened to me, but now, I really like this. It smells way better if it lingers around in the air, so don't judge it by smelling on paper.

It smells generic, but the people around you will like it for sure. It has a cooling vibe with a hint of sweetness, almost shower-gel like, but believe me, this is the best generic scent you can get. This is the fragrance that everyone in your environment will like, it's good for any occasion, any time, however, I would not use it in the cold.
I'm thinking about buying this one...

This is a super powerful juice and if u directly smell on spraying u will not like it. metallic synthetic vibe. Yes agreed.But by applying it 15 to 20 cms away from your body and then put on ur clothes.. After that you will get a ultra smooth clean fresh fragrance.. very good for office and casual occasions.For those who find it very sharp n generic pls try this method and you will definitely feel the difference

I really wanted to love Sauvage because of how mass appealing and big of a compliment getter it's supposed to be but that's just not the case for me when wearing Sauvage. My 60 year old male coworker actually stopped me when I was wearing Sauvage one day and told me that whatever I'm wearing smells like bug spray and was making him feel nauseous. Sauvage just doesn't work for me. Also, either it performs poorly on my skin or I get olfactory fatigue from it very quickly because it doesn't seem to last more than a few hours on my skin. It doesn't seem to have the beastly performance for me that so many people are claiming it does. The smell is not terrible but not thrilling either. It's pretty synthetic and scratchy smelling to me, and honestly, I somewhat agree with my coworker that hates it so much, it almost has a bug spray vibe to it.

The other problem if you will with this fragrance is that it is quickly becoming the Drakkar Noir/Aqua Di Gio everyman fragrance of this era. Give it a couple of years and everyone and their dog will have smelt Sauvage on someone whether they know it or not.

It's a decent fragrance, I'll give it that, but it's too generic and popular for my tastes and it's way over-hyped. It's not nearly as good as everyone is saying it is.

This smells nothing like Aventus. Absolutely nothing like it.

In regards to the fragrance itself... it's ok. It's likeable, but for the price, you can do better than this for less money. When you have a very generic scent and average performance at a relatively high price, it makes no sense to purchase in my opinion.

It's ok, just not worth the money.

I don't understand the hate for this one. Yes it is not groundbreaking but come on, it is not a reason to dislike it because it is not as good as you'd like it to be.
Citrus, peppery, opening but not the usuall Versace Pour Homme etc citrus opening. The citrus comes out along with the pepper and it is pretty interesting.
The scent doesn't evolve much, it just gets a bit woodier as time passes. I can pick up the citrus,the pepper but I can't differate the 3 different kind of pepper that are listed, the vetiver, a sweet smell that must be the ambroxan, though I am not familiar with this note to be sure and there is a note, that I can smell in Spicebomb as well and must be the elemi.
Very decent performance and it shares a same vibe like Azzaro Chrome but Sauvage has better quality.

I am surprised by the longevity of this one.

Its a freshie without doubt. It has a very citrus opening. The dry out is a bit synthetic. But boy does it last on my skin for several hours. 6-7 hours easily.

I am yet to get a compliment. But then again i have worn it only thrice. I am hoping that eventually the compliments come in and that will help get me over the synthetic dry down.

An 8 on 10 for me.

I agree with Jeremy Fragrance. Dior Sauvage combines the beauty of Bleu de Chanel and Creed Aventus. It opens like Bleu then goes deeper to that fruity punch of Aventus. The performance is better than Chanel and the projection as well. I use it day time in office and it smells fresh and energizing. No one will hate this fragrance.

Got this for Christmas. I absolutely love it I can't see how anyone can dislike it. It's such a fresh scent. Sprayed this on my arm last night to try it out. First four hours was good sillage and then after that it began to stay close to the skin and sometimes get some whiffs after that, so I wake up this morning still smelling it on my skin , I takes shower I get out and I can still smell this on my skin!
I can't wait to start wearing this as it's meant to be a great compliment getter

It doesnt surprise me at all as this scent is nothing to write home about. Talked up stuff although pretty usual and generic. Dior and Chanel scents somehow always get the benefit of doubt. Most of their stuff are considered so called "masterpieces" even before they hit the market by their usual crowd. If this parfum was made by lets say Prada or Azzaro, people wouldnt even bother.

Don't let anyone tell you anything else, this is a masterpiece of a fragrance. This fragrance has received a lot of hate from the fragrance community because it was seen as a re-hash of already popular colognes like Bleu De Chanel. DO NOT listen to these people, the fragrance is absolutely top notch, with very good performance from a fresh fragrance and the perfect combination of notes, it just matches well. This is something for the summer heat and works well with people of a younger age, it's a brilliant fragrance that has a distinctive bergamot note, with sort of a soapy vibe. At first I didn't feel too much for this fragrance, but it's definitely worth a try for anyone that is or isn't into fragrances, it's just that good. Good luck! 10/10

I didn't get what all the hoopla was about for the fragrance. And then my friend wore it, as we spent the entire night together, drinking, eating and laughing. I get it now. I'll say this, it is very likable and it performs very well. It one dimensionally smells like toned down and controlled citrus and pepper. It is not in your face and it is no way offensive. In fact it is very well behaved. It has a lot of class and composure. I can see this being a great work scent for sure. And a great direct minimalist cologne too. I remember it coming out right after Bleu De Chanel and thinking that it simply copied BDC in packaging and smell. In packaging, yeah for sure. But in smell, now I'm not so sure. You'd have to be around someone wearing it to know what I'm talking about. What I'm trying to say is: it's better than I thought it to be. The best part about it, it has great longevity.

Scent: 8 or 9/10
Longevity: 10/10
Projection: 7/10

Got 2 samples of this and thought the first one was off. A bright start but almost immediately there is an almost pungent aroma which is not pleasant to me. I tried the other sample and the same outcome. Something just does not agree with my skin. Washed it off and put some Eau Sauvage on and Bingo... Bliss...

It does smell synthetic and generic, nothing complex about it a mass market product from dior, but it really does perform. perfect for any weather or occasion and any age male.

As allways on christmas I buy my man Chanel Allure Homme Sport, becouse we both love it so Its a safe buy :) But by accident sales assisant suggested me to try Sauvage and OMG! I already regreted that I bought Homme Sport again - its a new love fragrance for my man, I can only imagine how good it will be on his skin! Maybe its not complex, its not nishe type of perfume, but as many here allready mentioned its clean, its easy to wear, its so addictive that I want to inhale fragrance again and again (and its the first time that happened with mans perfume:), and ooohh its YOUNG n SEXY!!

I got a sample bottle when I bought another fragrance. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it. Women were telling me they loved it and wanted me to send them pictures of the bottle so that they could buy it for their guy. When I sampled the fragrance at the department store, it didn't empress me. So I didn't buy it. But after all of the attention it got when I used the sample bottle, I put it on my wish list. I had been wearing it for over an hour when I got the compliments, so maybe it wears well on me.

Oh, this fragrance is so wonderful. I was struggling to choose a fragrance for my father - there are just so many great fresh spicy fragrances available for men! But I'll tell you why I chose Sauvage. My father has always restored cedar furniture. He likes the smell of tobacco and the peaty taste of single malt scotch, so I knew I wanted something with integrity that would reflect his interests and provide him with feelings of nostalgia. At the same time, I wanted something modern, versatile and fresh to signal a new stage in his life.

This fragrance opens with a zesty lime which is anchored by a number of peppers, as well as bergamot and ambroxan which are "old-worldly" without being over-bearing. My intention is that when he sprays this, he will feel invigorated and refreshed and that the heavier, spicier mid- to base- notes will carry him throughout the day and into the night. The silage is perfect - it's a mid-range and the fragrance lasts throughout the day, which is fantastic for someone on the go. It's blended perfectly. I think this is a fantastic blind-buy for its genericness, which is actually a strength in this instance. If you're buying for someone who isn't really into fragrances and doesn't have the time to find their "signature scent", buy them this. It ticks all the boxes in the best of ways.

I have to say that i really like this fragance, i don't think that in order to make a good cologne you need to have the rarest notes in the world or the most luxurious and alluring smell added to your juice because its for you to enjoy, some of the other reviewers say that this isn't a masterpiece from dior and i dont know about that but it really brings a really enjoyable and fresh new smell. I have a 200 ml of sauvage and i know how it smells, something weird happened to me the other day, i went to the mall and casually smelled the tester of dior sauvage and its strange but i got a glue vibe from the tester that i never get on my bottle and i bet that's why people say that, the bottle was very used so that means to me that you must never over spray this cologne or you will get that smell of glue from it.

This lasts all day on my skin, projects very good also, the smell is sweet, fresh and spicy all at once it has a cold feeling to it but to me it is really sweet with some spiceness at the end. One of the reasons why i will repurchase is the performance, people like to compare this to bleu de chanel, this shits on bleu de chanel in performance AND smell, this by no means is as generic as chanel and is a little cheaper, but it isnt anything unique, again i was surprised by the performance, ladies love this which is another plus
Solid 8/10.

I am going to start with what I dont like

This is pleasing
I like it
But no matter how many times I put it on,its never interesting.

It is quite average,generic in Terms of smell.
For the life of me I can't detect any actual (real) notes/aroma used.
What I mean is that there is not one single naturally occurring substance that I can detect.

I know all perfumes are mostly synthetic but what I mean is that this kind of uses fantasy notes.

This is so bloody long lasting,fresh,pleasing that people can actually smell it for a long time an therefore the compliments

Well done Dior in order to make it a solid performer for a Freshie

I don't think anyone who want to buy it has to worry bout smelling like milion others who have bought this, as there is nothing distinguishing about it.

This for general public (owns 2-3 bottles total) is a bomb
But I have plenty others that do the same
I gave mine to my younger brother

Scent 5/10
Performance 10/10
Occasion - casual
Season-summer/Spring

Total 7/10

Other alternatives ( same performance and fresh)
1. Blue De Chanel
2. Aqua De Gio essenza // Profumo

It's just ridiculous how cheap the Zara clone is in comparison with Sauvage. I own the original Sauvage and went into a Zara store to try that thing out.

The Zara clone opens more citrusy, but you can detect the Sauvage DNA from the beginning on. After a few minutes it's just the same (!!!!) smell.

To give a reliable information I went to another fragrance store with the Zara clone on one hand and sprayed Sauvage on the other and this is no joke I liked the clone more. I spent 93€ for Sauvage and today 10€ for the clone and I will never buy Sauvage again. Why should I? And I am serious about it.

Even the longevity is nearly identical to each other. I only can't tell about the sillage yet.

I just discovered this on accident a few days ago. Love at first sniff! It is probably the sexiest fragrance for men I have ever smelled. And luckily my man likes it aswell (which has taken me by surprise because he is not that much into fragrances). And I immediately decided to buy him a bottle as it smelled amazing on his skin and I just couldnt stop sniffing his neck. :D

An amazing all-year-round perfume with great projection and also very decent longevity (even though it is only an EdT). Slightly watery, fresh spicy, deep, luxurious, sultry and very... unusual. You should really give it a try and be patient with the scent as it develops slowly but in the most mesmerizing way imaginable.

It is to soon to tell anything but anyway. I bought the first bottle 2 days ago, tryed it in afternoon and the first impression was the intensivity which puts my nose away from the sprayed hand. After 20 minutes smell became much more pleasant, still intense and synthetic and I really liked it.

Yesterday I wore it for a full day and the performance of 2 half sprays was good enough for a 8h jobtime. The sillage is not so strong, but I think it is bit stronger than just 'moderate' from graph as it is fresh.

And today in the morning I was shocked. I think I have half anosmia or something like that. I can smell but very weak, also the odors are different - CDS smell today aquatic and sweet ... Also other fragrances smelled different. Hope my nose gets better soon :)

I'm a woman and I just loved it on my boss and after a month I asked him and found out that he was using CD Sauvage. I just had to get it for my husband. I want him to use it coz I love it on him. I simply love it. Perfumes are a personal choice just like everything else we choose and buy. Just because someone likes blue doesn't mean it has to be your favourite colour too.
So it's best to go by your instinct. If you like it on yourself, buy it and use it. If not, it sure does work well for others!

- Tired mall scent -

Interesting reviews here - such a basic fragrance and so many polarizing opinions! I do not hate the scent of Sauvage but I do think it's another spawn of mass consumerism and a great example of it's dullness.

They say, in the very end, it's the personality of one that really makes or breaks a relationship. You could have the most gorgeous guy with a greek god's body and a bank account thats resembles the horn of plenty but it's all irrelevant if his personality is as colorful as a Soviet Unionian block of flats. Well, Sauvage is one of those guys. No kink, no element of surprise, nothing twisted, nothing to think about, no adventure or fun. Simply masculine, clean and unforgivably pedestrian. It's a scent for men who simply want to look good, get laid and get rich.

Again I don't hate the scent itself (basic citrus a la Bleu de Chanel) but for me it is as inspiring as an Axe deodorant. It's okay to be ordinary and not every wearing of fragrance must be of 80's powerhouses. What really differentiates Sauvage from many "safe" fragrances to me is it's cocky and brainless seek for attention - so loud, pricey and out there but has actually nothing to say. It's the alpha in the room that gets all the ladies but is so empty in the inside it's really just painful to watch - kind of like todays mainstream music industry. If this was a David Beckham fragrance I would have some sympathy but to have this thing come from the legendary house of Dior it's just a waste of so much potential.

The best review I have read from fragantica spain user DominoZafiro.

A laboratory fragrance of genetic experimentation. If criticism comes from the general public, then something truly bad should have happened, and for Dior, I will not be late in giving proof of the controversial fragrance

Sauvage (If Dior continues assaulting the names of his mythical classics, it will end up on the shelves of pharmacies next to Yves Saint Laurent) begins with a radioactive explosion of pepper, (both on my skin and on the skin of All of which I have felt it) if pepper was subjected to a process of fusion in an alcoholic solution.Then it goes to a fruity center, highly synthetic, it seems that they used transgenics, or even wax fruits and cloth flowers (They are still nice, but there are perfumed soaps that smell the same ...)The base is the best part, the most salvable and the least unworthy of its name, ambroxan in such a state of purity is the best of Sauvage (2015) has in its aromatic arsenal, however, the Labdanum is cowardly and His companion does not even bother to show his name (but leaves an acidic essence, like "radioactive lemon juice").

Sauvage has a spirit similar to the vision offered by its container, that is, cold, coarse, soulless, dark, ostentatious and a huge etcetera; in a market where selling products to men that simply seek to attract women is simple, in fact, I imagine something similar to his method of creation:

A lot of marketers kidnapped a girl of about 20 years, retained her for months while giving her to try different aromas, the above, exhausted and malnourished, begins to approve all the aromas that are offered to her just to be able to go free, So, every time the perfumers go to her with a sample of perfume (creators of Sauvage) and look at her with a desperate look saying:

-Do you like it? Do you like it?
She responds tormented:-Yes, I love it, it makes me cum.
(Note that this is a metaphor).

Sauvage did not take any risks, he kept the aromatic standards of fast profits (At the most has one or another quality that prevent it from being confused by another pile of similar fragrances), but unlike Bleu, the audience got bored With vain aromas that only serve to attract females, because that seems to be their only charm (which varies depending on each woman, but that should not matter, unless a woman is going to wear Sauvage), does not have exceptional longevity, Does not project in meters, its aroma is not unique or particularly exquisite, it is not a revolutionary concept, and its value is incredibly unbalanced.But hey ... If you like it, buy it and use it; Sauvage (2015) at the end of the day, does not smell bad, but a scented soap smells as good (and save a considerable amount of money)

@Str8edge; I read a review (@mehrdad58) below suggesting that you should spray this a bit further from your body than you'd normally would do. I tried this yesterday and it smelled much more pleasant!

Now I will try this 'method' on other strong smelling perfumes of mine too. Come to think of it, it's kind of logical too that the top notes won't be that prominent then.

Traded my bottle of D & G The One to my buddy for this stuff, and I am quite pleased that I did so. Go light on this, I use 2 - 3 half sprays (full sprays over do it), and the scent is pleasant and appealing; fully apply if you aspire to be a Jersey Shore douchebag.

edit: a year later and this beauty is finally opening up. Now I love it, and it's a cologne that i will always have in my closet as long as it's available in the stores. this is a safe but really pleasant smell. you can't go wrong with this, trust me!


This was my gateway to expensive frags (i'm still quite a rookie in the fragrance world, i don't have the nose to smell out all the different ingredients, i rather go for the feel and mood the smells give me)

I first saw the Johnny Depp poster, looking cool as ever (i'm hetero btw!)

Then I went to the local perfume store and the young lady gave me a sample of this and the new Mr. Burberry. I couldn't decide which cologne I liked best. The shop assistant said she favoured Sauvage of the two, and I bought it.

Still, I find it smelling a bit too harsh and strong. Now I kind of regret I didn't read more reviews here before deciding on a new bottle.

Smoky SweeTarts... Candied man sweat... Mechanic's jeans and laundry detergent... And yet, there's something addictive about it.

Body chemistry is everything with this one. For some it will smell clean and fruity, for others it will smell oily and smoky. On me, it's somewhere in between and kind of tangy and soapy.

One thing's for sure, it gets smoky-fruity done right! That combo is what makes this and Bleu De Chanel so addictive.

If you have a strong body odor, you should stay far far away from this one, as it can amplify that humid body sweat smell... but if you don't have a strong body odor to mask and want to amp up your perceived libido factor, this is a pretty safe bet.

At first it remind me of the original Jazz. Something new for millennials but familiar for the rest of us, Neanderthals.
I can see the attractiveness, it's like a refined formula of axe deodorant. Masculine, clean and safe.
But don't get me wrong, I like it. Alright, it's not groundbreaking, but most perfumes aren't this days. So at least I enjoy it.
The ambroxan is on a full power mode but luckily from time to time other notes appear to give a break. Vetiver, pepper and patchouli.
If I have to describe it, I would say masculine ( but not sweet and heavy like 1million). Try it, even if you are not totally convinced, I'm sure you can pull it off on some occasion.

Really interesting and special fragrance although it can give a generic vibe.

It is very casual, it has a untamed, rugged aspect to it and it's a compliment magnet. It's quite addictive. The amber is more of a citrusy/airy/spicy kind and that makes it very versatile and sexy.

A simple yet modern and alluring fragrance.

Performance is medium.

This smelled like juniper to me although it says there is no juniper in it. This is one that had notes I liked and notes I didn't like causing me to go back and smell this on myself 200 times trying to figure out if I liked it or didn't like it. I'll give it one thing: it is unique. But that sweet, pseudo-juniper punch to the nose it carries up front just does not work for me. In a way it smells fresh, but in a synthetic oddball blend kind of way that feels as if it's trying to trick your brain into liking it rather than it being genuinely pleasing.

Now I know why Johnny hits his wife.

FIRST: I generally have a passionate hatred of freshys.

Stated for transparency reasons and clear bias.

Freshys on the whole simply smell like offensive, synthetic-metallic, nostril-burning, headache-inducing, nauseating artificial soap dispensers ala southern states 1980's gas station restroom pit stops on the thruway.

On the whole, I'd rather smell like what's in the toilet than the "freshy" synth-chemical concoction that so many (esp in America) find to be so wonderfully pre-migraine hypnotic and psycho-olfactory seductive.

This was the very first fragrance I tried as I re-entered my journey back into the fragrance world after more than ten years of leaving it, due to massive dissatisfaction and disappointment with what was being offered.

So I was eager to explore what the industry now had to offer, and was looking for the best possible starting point.

The kind older lady with the fashionable floral dress at the Macy's counter sprayed it on a test strip for me, assuring me that this was "the one" I would absolutely love.

That it would rekindle my long-lost passion, embracing me in a shroud of semi-ecstasy and awe of the new world of designer sillage around me.

Took the test strip to my nose...

Immediately jumped back in reflexive reaction to having just been squarely punched hard in the nose.

Willing to give the dry-down a chance, I brought the test strip with me to my car, and proceeded to drive home.

One of the longest 20 minutes drives I've ever drove, followed by an unwelcomed three hour headache, moderately amusing dizzy-ness, attention-getting disorientation and nausea, all of which made for an interesting change of pace and affording me a relieving nap.

Once awake three hours later, half my Saturday shot, semiconscious and basically recovered, I was able to piece together enough thoughts to realize the fragrance industry has not only NOT improved...

...but it has become frighteningly much worse.

A screetchy, scratchy, burning, highly offensive MESS.

However:

Those who enjoy the nuances of a synthetic-smelling metallic white coat lab disinfectant stirred into existence with opaque latex gloves and sterile face masks, (the latter of which are more aptly designed for being exposed to scents like this)...

...You should love it.

I'd rather have the mask.

I bought this for my husband, and it has become his signature - absolutely beautiful. The opening has a slight licorice vibe on him.
I do think the advertising campaign is a little off the mark though. This fragrance needs a far more wild and sexy man than Johnny Depp, a man who climbs mountains and plays music, but also looks hot in an edgy suit - maybe Jason Momoa, or Chris Cornell.

Guys, again. I am not sponsored by anyone. But do try Zara Aromatic Future. Even if you have Sauvage, like me, save it and get this one cheap. It is so close no one will ever know it's not Sauvage!! I don't like Zara in general, but they have like 5 frags among tons of them that really are quality and good, with this one leading and taking the cake. Hats down for almost a perfect copy! People simply need to know about this. rest you can try and pass, but this one... telling you. Try it.As others have noted, it is a lighter version of Sauvage but not by much, but the smell is so so close it really is worth your time and purchase. You won't be set back for like 10 euros and you will have a great frag to wear while you save up far expensive Sauvage, and still get compliments and very same results. Sure you spray few sprays more but it is so worth what you get and what you pay.

I'm not surprised that I love this fragrance so much because it contains all my favorite classic fougere ingredients. Lavender, Geranium, Vetiver, Bergamot, and Cedar. Really a fragrance just cannot get any better than this for me. Lasts a whole day and projects very nicely thanks to that amazing Ambroxan and Labdanum base. Generic or not, I have never had a fragrance that smelled this good, that also could perform this well. I definitely need to get a few more bottles before there is a reformulation.

I actually WORE the fragrance not just smelling a test strip. Sprayed 2 spritz on the neck at 8:20am, girlfriend told me how amazing I smelt at 3pm... great job from the House of Dior. Also, the atomizer is different than almost anything I've used before, it sprays extremely well almost like an aerosol can.

I've tried so very little to like this, but I am loving this stuff more and more. It is selling off the hook at the dept. stores, which I am not ecstatic about... I wish the general public would have a more discerning nose like all those, here at frag central... Ahh, heck, what do they know, anyway. Don't try so hard to like something. You don't like it, no biggie, move on, mate.. like something else.

Okay this was the most pleasant surprise I've encountered in a long time. I traded for a 6.7oz bottle after only smelling it once a long time ago. The sprayer can easily knock over a small child lol. Like it sprays for 5 seconds when you press down lol. It opens very fruity and dries down to a generic but fantastic metallic vibe. One of the knocks on this was performance. I wore 6 sprays because I heard performance was shit. I went in to work and someone said I was giving them a headache 2 rooms away. This was 6 hours after applying and I never left the room I was in or walked passed her. So projection and longevity are fantastic. I couldn't smell it on myself at all but everyone else thought it smelled good but I put too much on. 4 sprays is more than enough. Normally metallic scents give me headaches but this one doesn't for some reason. Normally the drydown is bad but this one remains good throughout the whole life of the fragrance. This fragrance dethroned DHI as my favourite Dior designer or Prive. It is in the same category as Bleu de Chanel and Aventus but they all three smell different. The only similarity is how they develop.

Scent: too subjective, smell it
Projection: 10/10
Longevity: 10/10
Originality: 8/10

I don't like this, but then again, I don't like patchouli. I also don't like lavender, so it's no wonder this was a loser for me. Strong and manly, definitely not a feminine fragrance. This is almost choking me. Too harsh. Projection, sillage, and longevity are all excellent. I get fourteen hours out of this.

The dry-down is nice. Not the best thing I've ever smelled, but nice. But I have to wait about four hours for the choking, harsh scent to burn off and the soft drydown to appear, and who wants to choke for four hours?

Axe comparisons are accurate.

Ladies dig it, men dig it, I dig it. Sauvage opens up with bergamot and pepper. Pretty quickly it dries down to a woody ambroxan. The ambroxan is smooth, creamy and fresh while retaining some of the peppery, citrus nuance. A "masculine" scent but I wouldn't mind smelling this on a woman. A bit synthetic smelling. A bit sexy. A bit soapy. Works in any situation, time of day or season. Probably best in summer or spring.

Longevity is enormous. At twenty four hours I can still smell it on my skin. Sillage and projection are average. It leaves a trail and people will notice it. As others have stated it's a compliment getter. Bottle design is very cool with it's Fahrenheit fade, La Collection Privée style bottle and magnetic cap. Like many Dior fragrances the sprayer is glorious. You can actually control spray size with a harder or softer push. My bottle is batch 6U05. Original style box with embossed lines on the sides.

The ad campaign and Johnny Depp are dumb but I get what they're going for. To criticisms that it smells generic I think it's important to think about this one as a modern scent; based on trends in contemporary fragrance. As far as I'm concerned it smells good, gets compliments and lasts forever. What more could I want?

I smelled this in the cosmetics area and was immediately captivated. I bought it before I even knew it was Christian Dior and seemingly quite a contriversial one at that. I bought it because it smells freaking amazing. My husbands loves it, I love it on him, and so do many other ladies - in fact I am considering not buying it for him again as he's getting way too much attention!

My honest opinion on this cologne - This will be one of the cologne u will either HATE or falling in LOVE with it. Idk how can there be lots of negative reviews about this! Everybody chemistry react differently to different scents. U just gotta try things out for yourself and see if u like it. From my experience, this is one of my absolute favourite scent of all time. When I first spray and smell it, it smell like glue, but after a minute of two, it turned to something different. It's heavy and very fresh

When I smell it, I fell that I have smell this smell somewhere before but not sure what it is. To me it's smell very luxurious. I could instantly imagine me living inside a modern house that made out of wood in the middle of the forest. All the materials inside the house are luxurious and that's what this cologne smell like.

Also I feel like a masculine CEO business man when I wear this, make me feel like an upper class man in a suit. I recommended guys around 18-25 give this a try tbh! Dior Sauvage is leaning towards more of younger guys but anyone can pull this off, it's just work better if u are young.

Saru21 - Yes, it does smell almost identical but lasts shorter than Sauvage and it's quality level is pretty awesome! But speaking of quality, how come now people are speaking of Sauvage as, quality, when up to few months ago this page was full of how much of a fail Sauvage is. That it is a synthetic mess, uninspiring, not Dior worthy, smells awful, low quality, low everything and all of a sudden it's top notch in everything and clones suck balls. Cmon!

It is so not true!! Those clones are weaker and it is stated as such in the longevity and silage page under the fragrance. But they are more quality than people will admit. I have them and really side by side, they aren't that different nor are they so much lower in quality. Zara is very well rounded and lasts longer than what you pay for it. Dylan Blue too and I don't know why in the hell people are bashing on it. It's the same thing when people who love Allure Homme Sport where die hard set on Versace Pour Homme having lower quality and less similarity to AHS.

Dylan Blue is a good alternative to Sauvage, but to consider Zara AF as clone that does a better job is misleading. AF smell almost identical to Sauvage, but at 20 bucks or less you get what you pay for as its performance is lack luster. If you want Sauvage but won't or can't invest the money for it, then Zara AF is a good alternative. However, its far from being the 360 Red of Sauvage in terms of quality.

Now that I got all of them I can test them side by side and I can say with a certainty that... the best clone of Dior Sauvage is Zara Aromatic Future and Versace Dylan Blue. Bleu de Chanel isn't close but it is in the same league with a similar vibe. I'd Say Dylan Blue is more of a fruitier version of Sauvage that lasts quite a good amount of time. But Zara AF is such a close clone that people would have a hard time knowing which is which. They should be put here accordingly so others who are searching for alternatives can know about them.

And to those fanboys who keep constantly deleting my posts on this subject... I can put them right back as you delete them and if some of you think precious Sauvage can't be and isn't cloned with very good similarity and quality, you're mistaken. Dylan Blue and Zara AF DO smell very very close, whether you like it or not. I'm sorry but you live in denial. This is a good frag and a compliment getter as I have it and said before, but clones do a better job. So I encourage ppl to try out Dylan Blue and Zara AF, so they can see for themselves and write about it.

simpa256 - For me, 90% of the time when someone says a fragrance is similar to another one to me they aren't even in the same galaxy let alone solar system. So are 90% of the other people wrong?

I tried this one few times but I dont own it, its a fresh smelling perfume to my nose.

I mostly appreciate the citrus smell (bergamot) and it smell like the peel of the fruit rather than than the frut itself, which gives it a more sharp citrussy, and BITTER scent. Other notes I can smell are mainly woody, and a hint of sweet smell of florals.

I like smelling citrussy perfumes, they are very versatile and make me feel fresh. But I cant say its a work of art, although its a very pleasant one.

I like it, its fresh, not a complex one. But there are few perfumes I would be buying before getting to this one.

I have spend thousand upon thousands on my collection. Why would think that this would be my top compliment getter. I also have to admit, that it really is good. Sure it is synthetic in nature, but it just does something for the masses. While it might be the cool thing to discredit this fragrance. I must say this is a keeper for me and one to wear when you want positive attention.

It should be noted that a lot of times in this community, the users who make claims about reformulations are actually just oblivious towards their own oil factory fatigue. I can't smell this thing on me 30 mins after application, and yet I find myself still receiving complements from both men and women on how good this smells on me up to 9 hours later. It hasn't even been two years since Sauvage was released, so I doubt they've already reformulated this so hastily.

The scent is the same.

A large fragrance store in Sweden has the newer one.
I tested it on one hand and my own "preformulated" Sauvage on my other hand 20 minutes later when I got home.
No difference in smell whatsoever, and they both last a long time. I fell asleep when both where still very noticeable but they where equally strong at that point.

Hope this helps!

ive been trying to find a fresh long lasting fragrance since i gave away bleu de chanel cause i got bored of it.

The lady at the store recommended this saying "This is citrus y and lasts a long time so of course i tried it at the store and i actually kinda like it.


Its has a clean crisp gentlemeny vibe going on similiar by a tiny bit to bleu de chanel and i think this is perfect for me.
it might not be the most unique fragrance out there

If you mixed aventus and bleu de chanel you'd get this. I like it but I prefer bdc or aventus it's a peppery bergamot opening then the Ambroxan kicks in and it stays throughout. Is it a compliments monster no I've worn it in bars clubs and work no compliments

Perfume Emporium sent me an apparently returned bottle but it was recently made, full, and only about $79 delivered so...

My initial thoughts are Christian Dior Sauvage has a cloying citrus opening with obvious pepper in the background, but they swap places almost as soon as the alcohol dries. Lavender is quite evident. There are other elements named i.e. geranium and patchouli I struggle to single out but vetiver certainly comes up strong after a couple of hours as this starts to dry down. That said, performance is above average -- take care not to over-spray this juice. No sweetness to speak of -- this is an aromatic. I also detect a clean/soapy accord as well as a hint of petroleum about it.

Dior Sauvage is NOT natural smelling but I won't go so far as to say it smells synthetic as the Al Haramain's l'Aventure and maybe Armaf's Club de Nuit Intense Man (but not Aventus) it reminded me of at some point. Bleu de Chanel comparisons are a stretch.

Do I like Sauvage? At first, no, I kinda disliked it. And not because it's NOT cutting edge or especially unique, whatever, it just didn't strike my fancy. However, my opinion skyrocketed to ambivalency after a couple of hours. I'd still judge someone wearing this to have, at best, pedestrian taste.

It's a 7/10. And Johnny Depp is a zero.

I just purchased this fragrance, and let me tell you...

I'm in love. This is amazing and it can't be described. Because of its fresh spicy top note, it should be sprayed with caution. As this can be a nose burner when smelled close, one should spray around 2-3 sprays and the fragrance will do the work. It blends amazingly with air. Overspraying may do the fragrance the opposite of what it's supposed to do. This is a versatile fragrance and can be used for any occasions AND any seasons. Though it has been said this is more of a summer fragrance, I actually see this more flexible and therefore I believe it can be used for any occasions and any seasons.

Edit: The sillage is not there for me, so I tend to spray more than 2-3 sprays.

Fall has arrived to my fair city, and with it I have made my cabinet switch to my fall palette - which brings me to Sauvage which I bought this summer.

I know that there've been a lot of comments about this being a generic scent. For my money, this is a singularly unique scent, and it's for a very specific reason. In the best possible way, there is something sultry and dangerous in this bottle - I mean like an Italian mistress who tears your clothes off in public places because she doesn't care who sees what she's about to do to you. I can't call this is a formal scent because I feel almost ashamed to wear it to work. I'd never wear it to a cocktail party because this is unrefined liquid sex - a high-society orgy yes, but never a party with friends.

Everybody who said this pulls in complements from women, you could not be more right. I saved this for the fall because I didn't want it to project for ten feet, but I might have to save this one for my fiance, because wearing it for anybody else might not be okay.

I understand some people complaining of headaches - there is some seriously heady, silky heft to some of these notes, like a room full of incense. There's definitely a line that can be crossed when it comes to applying this beast, so tread lightly.

Whereas some scents are clean, this is a dirty, dirty girl with a husky growl, tattoos under her fishnet hose and a lighter that's the same custom color as her muscle car. This one means spent room service dishes piling up outside the hotel door because she won't unlock your handcuffs until she's done with you.

Sex... in... a bottle.

Do you like smelling synthetic?
Do you like smelling like metal? (Who doesn't!?)

Then this is the fragrance for YOU!


It was sort of a blind buy (I remember kind of liking it in the store), but it turns out it was a bad one. Sprayed it on my hand and I get a bit nauseous every time I smell it. Yes, the longevity is great, yes, the sillage is great and yes, I can see this getting some compliments (I haven't tested it in the wild)...but why, why oh why, would I ever wear something that gives me a headache. Compliments are nice, sure, but if the smell is a pain than who cares? Just like wearing clothes I don't feel comfortable wearing *just* to get attention is stupid, wearing a fragrance that makes me sick that *might* garner a lot of compliments is stupid as well.

Invictus Aqua garners me compliments AND I love the smell. It doesn't have to be one way or the other.

Also: please don't bother with Bleu de Chanel. Probably the somewhat better smelling of the two, but why bother heavily focussing on pitting these two against each other if there are many fragrances out there that smell so much better.

I got this for my brother since he liked the free sample I got from the store. Whenever I smell it, it smells ok, but not great, also not for me. Funny thing is that our mom thought it smelled like bug spray. The weird thing is that there's actually a bug shaped imprint inside of the bottle cap. I don't really have anything against this fragrance, I just think it depends on who can pull it off.

I never thought I would say this, but I was just about to iron a shirt I wore and washed the day before yesterday, and it still smells like Sauvage. I got a 2 ml tester at the local mall and I decided to try it on a night out. This thing amazes me. To me honest I am not a fan of Sauvage, I personally find the smell to be just "meh". But boy, you can still smell this after washing your clothes. Amazing!

Don't mind the negative reviews. These are written by older men who, apart from possibly having a diminished sense of smell, would rather soak themselves in pungent oakmoss or civet juice. I admire them for being in a different era, and respect their opinion, but this perfume is what it is.

A modern classic.

Users complaining about a scent not being "groundbreaking" is the most pretentious snobbish thing ever. This cologne follows scent tropes that are timeless in male parfumary. This cologne's scent is as timeless as a plain white T-shirt, or a pair of jeans. Are either "groundbreaking"? No, but both are timeless essentials and that is what this type of scent is. Do you need this if you already have either BDC, Dylan Blue, or something similar? No, but this is an "easy reach" essential scent that anyone could benefit from having in their arsenal.

I don't get all the hate on this fragrance. Yes, it does smell "boring" and has no character whatsoever BUT it gets the job done and gets the attention of other people around you. Girls really dig this one. Hate it if you wish, but this thing will love you.

The scent trail of this fragrance is the best part of it so don't even bother smelling it up close (skin or paper strip). It will come off as being harsh, repulsive and dirty, all in all a total mess.

This will last on my skin anywhere between 8-10h, with 3-4h of pretty good projection, never really becoming a skin scent.

Much love

I am still not sure about this fragrance. I want to love it but i cant. I have asked many girls if they think it smells good and i got no on most of them. Each one said there is a certain note that makes there nose burn which i agree. If you smell it with somebody walking by in the air then it is better but not directly on skin or bottle. If your in a open space i recommend it but not in a small closed space

First things first – I did not like this fragrance very much on the initial spray.

It was a decent scent, but was a little overly sweet and nondescript out of the gate. Maybe there was some dark fruit and powder notes in there, I’m not sure.

So I struck it from my list.

However, I found that over the next few hours, I couldn’t keep the back of my hand (where I sprayed the sample) away from my nose.

After this cologne dries down, it leaves a sweet, peppery, leathery aroma. And this is the first time I’ve been able to isolate and enjoy pepper notes.

Sauvage by Dior would be a great everyday fall and winter cologne, provided you put it on well in advance of heading out the door.

This one is a bit strange , I kinda " hate to like it " , let's be honest , this one is kinda generic and dull , it's not really well blended either , but the final smell is "good" , just "good".
It's not genius or innovative in any way , but I find it impossible to hate it , and that's why it's a generic best-seller.

Dior just made with this one what Paco Rabanne made with Invictus and what Chanel made with Bleu , however I find this one less boring that the 2 others , which I really dislike.

The problem is I would have preferred Sauvage made by another brand than Dior , it's definitely not reaching the Dior Homme, Fahrenheit quality , Dior is such a great house in the fragrance universe that i'm a bit disappointed with this Sauvage launching yet again this is definitely not bad, that's why I don't get the Hype AND the Hate for this one.

The biggest quality of this one is its longevity ! It's certainly one of the longest lasting cologne that I ever tested, everytime I wear it lasts at least 12 hours on my skin, I get the same longevity with Jaipur Boucheron or Kouros , that means a lot, the projection is excellent for the 4-5 first hours then it settles down a bit , but is just a skin scent at the 10 hour mark , it's always projecting till this 10 hour mark as I'm concerned.


I also tend to push the "Like" button more than the "Dislike" because of what I mentioned previously , if there was a "Neutral" choice I would have pick it

The scent on this is amazing. It does smell a little different on different people but for this price I would expect it to have better longevity and sillage which it does not. It is something you want to smell again and again but on my skin it becomes a major troll. You can get used to this scent very soon ( aka olfactory fatigue) but if you try, u will find that it is there. The performance on it along with the scent is average and good for everyone. Safe for blind buying but you should know that you are very likely to have smelled this before since it is very common but might not have acknowledged it because it's not so exciting.

after some time wearing this, it made me change my mind about it. it smells great, the performance is good but can be better, you get noticed. this is currently the most expensive bottle i own and i will be buying it again.

The thing they most love is the scent that lingers in the air, because if you spray this and let a girl smell it directly it will smell harsh and strong, but wait 1h or so and you will get different reactions


Projection 8/10 it lingers good for a really good time

Longevity 9/10 i can smell it still on my shirt after 2-3 days

Sillage: PERFECT, not to much not too little..

On paper strip this smells generic, boring and Dior unworthy. On skin this smells divine. Like an open space full of oxygen, an untouched piece of earth. Absolutely unisex.

I just like it. I don't love it.
It's the new A&F Fierce, the new 1 Million?
It's the douchebag's smell that I don't really enjoy, but will get me compliments so yeah, I'll buy it for that. Superficial? 100%

I can only Describe this as that annoying friend that you don't like but they just love you. I really find this scent plan and I was expecting more out of the house Dior whom I love.My wife bought me a sample of it to try . when I walk out I was getting so many compliments that I had to buy a bottle for myself. Christian Dio did such a well job on the bottle and the spray is only second to Creed.This one is very boring to me but everytime I wear this I get compliment.

Let me add a couple more things I forgot....the bottle is so classy! Super heavy glass, magnetic cap, which I love, and absolutely hands down the best atomizer....ever! It sprays better than any other one I've encountered. It almost sprays like an aerosol! Such a long, fine mist. It's great. The bee inside the cap is pretty cool as well! I can't find one negative things to say about this juice or the bottle!

Be blessed, and smell great!

Man o man do I love this juice! I just don't understand all the negativity. I don't care if it's generic, or is synthetic! Who cares! What I care about is the great scent, and the great compliments! Goodness do I get a lot of compliments! Women of all ages love this stuff, as well as men! Guys ask me all the time what I'm wearing and where they can get it! It's such a fresh, clean, piercing fragrance. I'm not gonna break down all the notes because that's been done ad nauseam!! This reminds me of Bleu de Chanel in the opening, and I love BDC as well. Performance is outstanding! Probably the best of all the fragrances I've tried and owned. I get at least 12 hours of longevity! It even survived Dawn dish detergent! I sprayed it on the back of my hand for someone to smell it, got home and washed dinner dishes, got a whiff of Sauvage, and to my amazement,it was from my hand! Superb silage and projection as well.

I'm a young man and I keep my fragrance collection under 10 bottles always. I bought Dior Sauvage recently and I really like it, it's really great. Sure its not amazingly different or unique... It's not really staunchy, too obnoxious.

I love the ambroxan in it. It smells really masculine in a unique way to me, masculine hipster, exactly like Johnny Depp. It's still not overly masculine and only for bad-boys and jerks, it's masculine but not like dior fahrenheit or some leather+gasoline/petrol+tobacco fragrances, and such. So its somewhat fresh. It projects quite good, just the right amount. Longevity is good, above average for me, in my opinion.

I know that for a fraghead this might be slightly underwhelming, and not unique/new enough. If you've tried/owned tens or hundreds of fragrances then this probably isnt revolutionary. However for a man that rocks a single fragrance or a couple, this is awesome, great. It depends on what you like of course. For me, it makes me feel good and masculine, confident. Brings confidence.

This fragrance is for the masculine/confident gentleman. Confident man. Simple as that. Ambroxan, slightly peppery/sharp/sour, clean, fresh, modern. The modern gentleman. My signature scent. I hope it wont get reformulated anytime soon... Could stock up with a couple bottles or so.

Sillage/Projection = 8/10
Longevity = 9
Scent = 10
Overall = 9

What this smells to me is Vetyver mixed with vanilla and a bit of mint in the opening. Overall though it smells very synthetic to me and simple, without any layers or noticeable diversity of notes. I find it pleasant no doubt and very much the same type of fragrance as Pi Neo. It does evolve though, Vetyver becoming more pronounced. I cannot smell most of the notes listed above. THe overall effect to me is of freshened and sweetened up vetyver. I cannot judge yet the sillage and staying power.

Really a wonderful smelling fragrance. It has that touch of Dior signature lipstick but it's quite subdued. A nice spicyness ( maybe ambroxan) makes this more manly than their previous edts.Overall, I'd say in my top 10 ( out of about 200) so quite pleasant. Full bottle worthy!

This was my gateway to expensive frags (i'm still quite a rookie in the fragrance world, i don't have the nose to smell out all the different ingredients, i rather go for the feel and mood the smells give me)

I first saw the Johnny Depp poster, looking cool as ever (i'm hetero btw!)

Then I went to the local perfume store and the young lady gave me a sample of this and the new Mr. Burberry. I couldn't decide which cologne I liked best. The shop assistant said she favoured Sauvage of the two, and I bought it.

Still, I find it smelling a bit too harsh and strong. Now I kind of regret I didn't read more reviews here before deciding on a new bottle.

edit: a year later and this beauty is finally opening up. Now I love it, and it's a cologne that i will always have in my closet as long as it's available in the stores. this is a safe but really pleasant smell. you can't go wrong with this, trust me!

The scent isn't bad whatsoever, but it won't blow your socks off. No one will hate it, but (at least for me) no one will give you INSANE compliments. I did get a few compliments, and someone asked me what it was. I've had this about a week or two and I absolutely love it, it's gonna be my signature for a little bit while I save up for a niche fragrance. Very good for school, work, or somewhere where it can linger, as it smells better and better as it cools. I normally hate scents because I haven't gotten one to stay on me for a while, but this one does last longer than others. The projection is pretty good too, not to strong but not to weak. Again, great for work or school. All around I give it a 8.6

I'll try keeping this simple, because there are so many reviews, and many in depth. To me it opens very bright kind of lavender scent, croud pleasing, and i agree, nothing groundbreaking, but still unique, dont know any scents exactly like it. To my surprise,the drydown was its strong point, I got a nice, intense Bleu de Chanel ( as apposed to many who only get BDC in the opening). I have serious projection and longevity issues with BDC it dies down real quick. This one, after 2-3 hours is stronger than BDC freshly applied, so that in itself is amazing to me. So hats off because on my skin, this beats BDC, by far. And the complexity is nice, I find it evolves on my skin, whereas BDC is one-dimentional, linear.
I see why this would get a lot of compliments. A good release, but not essential for a collector though. For those how own just a few bottles it would be a great choice.

Dior's Sauvage is a pleasant smelling solid release. You get the Ambroxan and Bergamot and a really good smelling cologne. Not groundbreaking, which is why some say it is generic. It last 12+ hours for me, and you can smell it for hours. Sauvage is also a compliment magnet. This is a good one.

9 out of 10.

Try this on some testing paper and I didn't get what all the hype was about. Then spray it on my skin still can't see what all the hype was about spray it on my clothes yet still couldn't figure out what the hype was about. Walking home from shops today and guy few feet in front of me was leaving a trail of this behind him that's when I released what the hype was about. When its in the air thats when this is at its best. Thank god.

I agree with Mannie, this thing demands to be liked. I don't understand it either but I can say that the projection and longevity is outrageously good. These days, that's a major compliment. Although I dislike the marketing strategies used to push Sauvage onto consumers (see former post) I do respect the fact that it smells very clean and actually lasts. This is going to be my next purchase but as vain as it sounds, this is more of a frag you wear for others instead of yourself.

OK there is nothing that I can truly add to what has already been said about this fragrance. When I smelt it when it originally came out, I wasn't impressed. I've had most of the well talked of designer fragrances in the community and in my opinion this doesn't hold up to the classic or well loved fragrances. The Le Male's, Dior Homme Intense, L'homme Nuit, LIDGE, A*Man just to name a few.

But...in saying all that this is the most polarising fragrance that's probably ever been created. It's fresh to me, very fresh. When I wear it all I get is freshness. But here's the thing again, every guy, girl, young, old, dog, cat, goldfish and alien loves it...I mean LOVES it. This is the most complimented fragrance I have ever worn hands down...no contest...puts everything else to shame. A girl told me I smelt like a Greek God...i was at a bar and thought i was actually gonna turn a lesbian straight until we kissed and she told me that it won't happen. I walk by people and I hear them talk about that "amazing smell" And there's me just saying...it's OK I don't get the hype.

I'll never understand this fragrance...ever. I don't think it's meant to be understood. It's just meant to be worn, not even enjoyed when wearing it. One reviewer described it as a monster. It is, it has no shame what so ever. It somehow demands to be liked.

I'm trying to like this...and it's a solid fragrance. It just doesn't do anything for me. I can't explain it...I actually prefer Bleu de Chanel EDP over this. I can see this getting compliments, but for me it's just OK. Longevity is decent, sillage is OK, it is fresh...it just lacks that 'distinctiveness'. If I was 20 years old and could only afford one fragrance, this could be it.

Long running heavyweight house Christian Dior releases "generic" fragrance. Fans are surprised given the house's history of innovation. Some disappointment ensues amidst some praise. It's like the fragrance world equivalent to Metallica cutting their hair and releasing Load.

Sauvage smells as midnight blue as the bottle suggests, though not depressingly of course. It opens with that deep, plush, metallic blue and a subtle pepper teetering on generic, aquatic territory. After a short while the citrus rears its emerald face, and there's a faint hint of fruit amidst the classy, masculine, cleanliness. I think my favorite part of Sauvage is its metallic nature. Not in any kind of synthetic or cold way, but evocative of pristine, wet, faucets, e.g. a fresh shower.

Now I like unique and daring fragrances as much as the next guy, but I specifically bought Sauvage because I wanted at least one super safe compliment magnet in my arsenal. Generic? Sure. Crowd pleaser? That's the point.

In true Dior fashion, bottle and presentation are aesthetically fantastic. An exceptionally functional sprayer, great design, and the magnetic cap is the icing on the cake. So regardless of the hate, it's bound to be another classic in their line. After all, the most unpredictable thing Dior could have done is release a totally predictable fragrance.

Love this juice! When I first got it I was first not overly impressed. But after wearing it for a while it has almost become my favorite scent. It's pretty much Dior's response to Chanel's Bleu de Chanel. They both have the same vibe but Sauvage is def the better scent in my opinion. BDC is more sharp while this is more balanced while still maintaining good silage. I have gotten many compliments with this and a very safe blind buy. Its a very clean safe fragrance that the girls go ga ga for.

My brother wears this, and it's just wonderful. It's his signature frag. Very complex, it slowly unfolds from an odd initial opening that is slightly menthol to me. Then it becomes a very masculine scent with wood and spices, but not overly so. Citrus and amber take turns appearing. Good longevity and sillage. Very fresh and clean, a "come hither" effect. He does get a lot of attention wearing this, people want to come and sniff him!

Sauvage smelled ok to me at first. Nothing special as I already had about 25 fragrances in my collection. But then I smelled it on someone else and it smelled really good. I recognized the scent and said, you smell really good, is that Dior Savage? The guy responded, thanks, yes it is, good nose.
I then purchased a bottle and I have received more complements with this fragrance than any other and I now have about 35. I've heard so many women say you smell so good. One woman followed me to ask me what I was wearing and then said, it's worth it.
I have also asked many women to compare scents on my arms and from adult women, Sauvage almost always wins. The most common response is, this smells manly. So Sauvage is my signature. I rotate a lot as well because I like variety but generally Sauvage is my centerpiece simply for the reactions it brings. I am not affiliated with any fragrance company and I don't have a favorite brand or anything. I just go with what I like and what the women around me think. So for a mid range priced fragrance, I find that Dior Sauvage is a real winner. Judging by the comparisons I have seen on YouTube I would argue that Dior Sauvage is a real winner compared to any priced fragrance.

Don't know what exactly it is but apply lightly and then just see reactions. It's masculine without being 'blah', extra citrus or spicy. Just a perfect combination that could be as sporty as very formal and mostly? Free!

For me, it's the best from the well known and best sellers perfumes. I can't judge on lasting power/sillage, it's sexy and it's Dior. What else? I love smelling it on others. I thought women's perfume world is way more well cared and rich, but there are some perfumes that prove this wrong. Oh! And trust me, you can count them on the fingers of one hand. Sauvage, a little gem for real gentelmen...

When sauvage just came out my GF texted me a picture from a magazine test strip saying OH MY GOD please get this is smells amazing! I said bring the test strip over. I smelled it and I hated it, I laughed at her for liking a fragrance like this. Fast forward 6 months and I smell a fragrance on someone at work an I was blown away, it was one of the best scents I've ever smelled. Turns out is was sauvage, I said I must re-smell this. I re-smelled it and fell in love, bought a bottle immediately and it has become my signature scent. It reminds me a bit of creed SMW, that metallic note it has, a little Armani code,and some aventus in the opening.This may sound weird but it does smell a little like an axe spray I used to love and febreeze, but all said and done its in my top 5 of all time.

To me this smells really bad. It smells pure synthetic to me. There is a little sweetness, but the base is really repulsive to me. This is something I'd imagine Hugo Boss might release. A pretty bottle, a catchy name, and a run of the mill synthetic perfume. It's Hugo Boss in a nutshell. I own and love a lot of fragrances from Dior, but Sauvage is beyond disappointing.

I never actually planned to buy Sauvage.The day I bought my Blue de Chanel with my Girlfriend is the day we tested Sauvage because I've read so many good reviews about Sauvage and read that it's competing with Blue de Chanel that's why I needed to smell this.My girlfriend liked it so much I did too but Blue de Chanel was still nr1 to me.My girlfriend went on and on about Sauvage and I instantly started to like it too after testing it a few times.I have to say it's my nr 1 fragrance now.I got this as a birthday gift from my girlfriend.

if your own girl went to buy you this,even a 100ml what does this cologne say to us men.I swear i never said or thought this is the best but guys the ladies man they love this cologne.

I’m just smiling man=))) i can’t believe it. can’t wait to wear this in summer
I have the best best best girlfriend in the world =)

Really just unique for me

I got this cologne a couple of weeks ago. Of course the first time I smelled it I wasn't blown away. Now I love Sauvage. I think Dior actually told me what to wear instead of me knowing best :P

I have a thing for very unique smelling colognes or heavy ones like Gaultier 2, Pure Havane, Spicebomb and I even like the bubblegum ones like One Million or Ultra Male.
But I find them difficult to wear. Most of them are fit for going to clubs, and maybe Im just a boring person, but I dont go out THAT often.

So... Sauvage is easier to wear for all time occasions. I guess the name is a little misleading cause this fragrance is probably one of the safest "less wild" scents you can find out there... It leans towards the fresh side so Im not sure about the cold winters of Scandinavia, but I sure will give it a try. Its not a unique smelling cologne - it kind of just smells good... and its also a little "formal" and "pretty" smelling. But in a good way, I reckon its possible to pull this off casually too... you just stay on the classy side :D

Received my sample last week. First time I wear it, I received a compliment from a friend."You smell so good" was the first line I hear from her before proceeding to our conversation. This fragrance opens up with a peppery citrus smell. Bright, kinda sour a little bit. But it smells fresh and clean. Good for daytime wear. It reminds me of Bleu De Chanel so I can say this doesn't smell unique. When I first sniff this at the department store, I didn't like it at all. Too sharp, too peppery it gave me headache. But the story changed when I received my sample. Upon first wearing, I definitely fall in love with it. Good thing I ordered a sample and revisit this fragrance before I let it slip away.Longevity is OK as well as projection. It lasts long on my skin. Definitely worth keeping in any man's fragrance collection.

In a magazine I recently got, they had the paper sample thingy. I kinda liked the other side better, in smell only, because it had that vampire kid on it. This now, had MY FUTURE HUSBAND on it, lol. Johnny. So, I just had to go in the brick and mortar store to check them both out. Well, I ended up really loving this over the other scent. It is perfect. So, he doesn't really know about the Depp thing, other than yeah, he's a great actor......Ladies and gentlemen....it's pretty darn good :) Just a side note, read the reviews here, and many compare to Bleu which I got hubby. I have a ton of fragrances, but I buy him for holiday, birthday, etc. Found that funny after I read the reviews I had to add these last few lines. It truly has to be tried on skin as one reviewer stated. Seriously, Depp does clean up good :) I challenge anyone to name a better actor out there today as versatile as he. Anyways, not about that. I just happen to be a fan, and thought I'd try for hubs, we both like and that's what counts, and aren't we all so happy that we don't like the same things, that would be so boring. There are a few other frag's hubs wears, Lalique and that is grand, probably like that one the best.

Obligatory Sauvage review:

OMFG OMFG ITS DIOR! (Nick Jonas fangirl scream) AND ITS SAUVAGE!!!! (team jacob fangirl scream) AND MY FUTURE HUSBAND JOHNNY DEPP SPARROW IS THEIR MODEL SO YOU KNOW ITS GOOD!!!!! (Panty drop/fangirl scream into a megaphone).

Yeah. No.

The good: It smells great! Honestly it does. The notes are distinct and it comes off fresh like the prince of Bel Aire and easy and effortless like Perez Hilton swallowing a bratwurst. It's honestly a beautiful fragrance and has great longevity on the skin.

The bad: the people who wear it. Shut up about it already. You sound like the chick in the mall pronouncing "Versace" like "Verr-sase" and expecting to be treated like royalty. "Oh what am I wearing? ::chuckle:: oh nothing special, just a little something called Sauvage by Christian Dior...perhaps you've heard of it?"

Also bad is the performance when it comes to projection and sillage. I'm super jelly of those of you getting beast-mode out of this because if I could too-I would buy a bottle. But it is generic. Sorry it just is. Not a bad generic or an uninspiring generic but a nice soap that was in the bathroom at Mandalay Bay kind of soapy generic. It's nice and I don't mind the smell but it is not the holy grail.

Scent: 7/10, originality is debatable but it's still a nice smell.
Projection: 3/10, hardly if none for me after an hour or so.
Sillage: 2/10, nobody seemed to notice as I walked by, nor did I waving my arm around to see if I could get anything.
Longevity: 6/10, it does last on the skin very nicely for several hours but becomes indistinct after about the 4 hour mark meaning you will have to reapply throughout the day, using up your juice faster.


Would I buy this? If it was an extrait perfume and had monster performance-in a heartbeat, otherwise no.

Who do I suggest buy this: someone who wants to smell great, wants an inoffensive scent they can give a dumb-reach for no matter the ocassion, and doesn't mind being a little generic but still upscale. Someone who doesn't want to fill an elevator with their scent.

There is nothing wrong with this fragrance but there is not groundbreaking either. it smell good but kind of generic after the initial blast calms down. Longevity and projection are both good which is a plus. However i think most people are disappointed with this fragrance because they expected more from a house that came out with the Fahrenheit and Dior Homme series. At the end of the day it serves it purpose though; an easy wearing fragrance that can be mass marketed. It has become quiet popular here in toronto as every department store i walk into is really pushing this one.

After spraying the fragrance you are blasted with fresh bergamot, it makes my mouth water. This gives the illusion that it's a fresh fragrance, while actually it is quite deep. It tones down into that synthetic ambroxan smell (accompanied by some cedar, for me at least). That is why, at first, I get that soapy freshness that becomes something more mysterious and sexy. I find it to be a strange fragrance that might take some time getting used to, yet it is nice from the beginning. Don't listen to those fragrance snobs and if you really enjoy this fragrance, buy it, wear it, love it, get those compliments.

This one became "from love to hate" type of a fragrance for me. First I liked the scent and performance of Sauvage, but as time went by I realized that it is such a linear and boring fragrance, although the performance is above average. Yes it does perform well but you just smell ambroxan from 8 am till 19 pm. Nothing else.

And another "hate" reason for me was Sauvage being very popular among my colleagues aging from 20 to 50 :) When I step out of office, all corridors and rooms are filled with ambroxan.

After all I decided to hand this one to my dad. Sorry Sauvage but unfortunately you are the first fragrance that I gave to somebody after purchasing a full bottle.

The first time you spray Dior Sauvage, sometimes you will feel headache because it's very intense. After about 30 min., the perfume changed to be fantastic, spicy amber is very charming.

Just like a lot of people here I recently changed my vote from hate to like.. and now I changed it to love. This one really grew on me. Hated it when I first sampled it (mostly on paper) because it reminded me somewhat of BDC (which I really don't like) and cheap Axe bodyspray. But this scent turnes out to work great with my skin chemistry. Definitely not the most interesting/best frag in my collection, but I've been reaching for this frag a lot since I bought it. Extremely versatile with great performance.

Hey Guys. This is what I think about Sauvage
The first time I tried it felt like its something totally different from the rest of Dior fragrances and I sort of liked it but didn't buy it (was not convinced). Smelled it more and more and was not to impressed then one day I sprayed it in the mall and went outside and it was a pretty hot day, man... I was blown away such a clean smell perfect for hot summer, just makes you feel so fresh and not the cologne fresh but something proper with attitude. So the next day I go and buy it and didn't regret it in fact I'll keep on buying this juice and recommend it to others. And FYI girls love it. Received plenty of compliments with this one.
Last thing I wanted to say it lasts quite long and the sillage is quite good as well.

totally agree with axa5780

i have no desire to be a snob about this, but it's unremarkable and keeps disappearing. i'm wondering now that it's cool to overdose on aromachemicals proudly [see Molecules 01, 02, 03--02 is actually ambroxan dl], if we're going to see some of these phantom scents that go away, come back strong, then go away again. it's an intriguing effect, but makes it impossible to gauge how much is too much. with 1 Million--another ambroxan bomb--one spray is too much if you're in warm, closed quarters. i just feel like if you took away the ambroxan, this would be a very very weak and uninteresting scent, and somehow that feels like cheating, especially from Dior...

I tried this at the store and my first impression was "meh.". It's not bad, but it's also not love on first smell either for me. But I needed a fragrance for the hot days anyways so I thought I'd just give it a try and bought the 60ml bottle.

First of all, the sprayer is probably the best one I ever used. It disperses really well, you can actually control the amount by only pushing it halfway through without (!) it coming out as a stream instead of a mist.

The first time I used the bottle, I sprayed it on and after 10 seconds I couldn't recognize it anymore on me. I thought it was weaker than I thought, so I used a bit more and headed to a house party. I tried to smell it on my all the way there but couldn't, so I was already disappointed about the performance. But when I got there, oh man was I wrong. It wasn't the performance, but I guess olfactory fatigue, because I got compliments from two girls almost instantly when I entered the room, one telling me I definitely put on too much but she doesn't mind because I smell so good. The evening continued and this fragrance broke the record of my most complimented fragrances in one day just like that.

I don't know why, but ladies just love this stuff. Seriously, it'S ridiculous. For me it's still kinda synthetic (and I hate that word), but I guess my bottle will be empty soon anyways. So if you're still not sure, just invest the money or get some testers or something and witness what this fragrance is like in action.

I now own a 50ml bottle and must gladly admit, it surprised me. the scent is one the exact scents that I remember from my childhood (80's) and it reminds me of clean hotel rooms and those small bars of soap the put there to use and not at all in a negative way.

Do not think, that, this smells anything like other perfumes, with the word "Sauvage" in their name.

This, gentlemen, is worth every penny spent.

Dior have never let me down.

easily a 9/10 from me.

I mean, it is generic but not in a bad way. If anything, you will receive some compliments. This is definitely a people pleaser. I guess this perfume plays on the pheromonal side of things which triggers some type of feeling whether if you're a male or female.

I was not interested in this until I read a few reviews and actually decided to try it for myself. The main reason why im not head over heels with it is because im primarily a gourmand freak, but this is a nice change...and hey, constantly being complimented is nice too.

The scent gives me a seductive, nighttime kind of vibe that would work well at clubs or any setting to non-verbally gain someones attention.

I can understand how some would enjoy this, or how they noticed many compliments (though those who tried it who I know personally said they didn't like it at all), but you have to make a logical argument! Is this the only scent that garners compliments? The other day someone said that Mambo for Men was a great compliment-getter, for example, and buying that one instead of Sauvage will save you quite a bit of money. But let's put money aside for a moment. ConsumerThis said: "Let's just say it's been a pleasure to watch that love bar pass up everything over the time..." If you enjoy Sauvage for whatever reason, why would you want to see a whole bunch of other people buying it? Do you want to smell like every other guy in your demographic? I think most people want to at least smell a bit unique when they spray on a scent. Instead, it seems like some people want to feel vindicated, as if when enough people online (and anonymous) say Sauvage is great, then that justifies paying more than you would have for Mambo, Berlin by Playboy, or any number of other "cheapos" that would make you smell more unique and might garner as many if not more compliments! And this leads me to think that many "Sauvage lovers" don't have all that much experience, either will less expensive (non-department store) scents or with scents in general. If you disagree with me, please make a reasonable argument - I'm really interested to hear one at this point. Thanks.

I'll never forget the day I went to Saks 5th ave to get a new tom ford noir pour femme fragrance that I loved and seen this bottle sitting out. It was the same day release so I was interested naturally as it was from Dior. I see Johnny deep as the face for this fragrance and the overall presentation gave a vibe it was going to be a masculine scent. I went straight for skin and skipped the test strip...oh boy, I said to myself. This is going to be major and will be around for a long time so before they reform it or water down this magnificent beast mode performance and wonderful smelling juice, I needless to say walked out with two bottles that day.
I was shocked to come home and see all the hate this was getting. That dislike bar was all the out and no love on here. Let's just say it's been a pleasure to watch that love bar pass up everything over the time and this stuff deserves it. It's one of the best smelling designer scents out there. I mainly collect niche, but ever once in awhile I will purchase a designer when it offers something like this does...AMAZING scent guys! Perfect starting point for anyone wanting to collect fragrances and I love the magnetic cap! :)

Like Adam.spain said, it really grows on you. Yes it smells generic, but do you really have anything that smells like it?

You can not smell this, and think it smells bad. Everyone around me thinks I smell great everytime I wear it. I love to wear this and just smell good you know? Not smell like smoky pineapple(which I love btw), not smell like iris cacao sexiness(DHI), just smell GOOD.

As good as it smells I will say this:

Don't you do it Dior, don't you do it. Don't start making flankers a generic good smelling cologne. You've made a mass market crowd pleaser. Take the revenue, and start putting out some groundbreakers. IE Dior Homme line, Fahrenheit, Privee line.

Being an aventus fan-boy I didn't think much of Sauvage the first time I tried it. It smelt synthetic, cheap & linear so I instantly dismissed it. The soap note was very prominent for me and I wasn't a fan. I tried it a few more times on my skin to see if I'd change my mind but I still couldn't bring myself to buy a fragrance I didn't really love and has similar qualities to aventus.

Fast forward 6 months and I am now the proud owner of a bottle of Sauvage. Here's why.....Sauvage really grows on you and it's actually very good. I took the leap of faith and I haven't regretted it since. This gets too much unjustified criticism for a fragrance that gets overwhelming amounts of compliments, has excellent versatility and superb performance. Fragrance freaks need to accept that this is a people pleaser and it's going to be very popular. It's not a work of art but who cares, at least you'll smell great.

It's extremely versatile and I prefer this over BDC for a number of reasons, but performance alone is enough.

Take the leap of faith like I did....I promise you won't regret it.

I've tested this out now 3 times and have wanted so bad to like it but I just can't get into this !!! With that said I don't hate this fragrance as I can see why people love this but I can also see why people hate this as well.

The opening is nice, it's soapy,citrusy and slightly fruity. In a nutshell to me this smells like a deodorant or body wash. This starts out nice but then there's this really synthetic screechy note that's really loud,offensive and makes this smell cheap imho. If they toned down that screechy synthetic note this would be great but it's that 1 note that ruins it for me. ( I'm guessing it's the ambroxen) or however you spell it.

Performance on this is beast mode though !!! Even with 2 sprays on my forearm this is LOUD for 3 hours and lasts me 12-16 hours. Which is a shame that this doesn't smell better as I love to have scents in my arsenal that last all day.

Overall rating --- 6 out of 10 ! Beastly fragrance that isn't horrible but definitely not good

Of all that I own, I get asked about this one the most, from men and women equally. I personally love it after having been subjected to "friendly fire" whilst waiting for my wife in a dept store.

As stated before, Sauvage isn't a terrible scent. It's just not as groundbreaking as its predecessors from Dior. People are mad at the house and they project that anger towards Sauvage itself.
(Quick notes from my perspective: It doesn't smell like BdC but is similar in the sense that they both fit the same occasions. It's a generic crowd pleaser. It smells better in sillage than up close. It isn't what Dior tends to release. I believe after a while people will stop bashing it and accept it for the generic crowd pleasing scent it is, instead of comparing it to DHI and whatnot.)

It smells great and performs above average. It lasts very long on the skin and projects for 6-8 hours quite nicely. If you want a fragrance for its functionality (a positive contribution to your whole outfit) then this is perfect. It is fresh and spicy and I get good compliments from many people.

If you want a complex and unique scent with many distinguishable notes, then this might not be for you and DHI might be more up your alley.

I am having a hard time believing this fragrance was born in the same house that brought to the world such groundbreaking innovations like Fahrenheit and Dior Homme (despite my unfriendliness to the latter, I can't help but recognize it is a piece of art and a true statement).

That's not to say that Sauvage smells bad, it's just the other way around: it smells so safe and inoffensive I can hardly believe it could have been christened so.

After literature, cinema and music, politically correctness has eventually made its final (and fatal) victim in perfumery. I hope we will be able to look back at it from some point in the future and simply regret how unimaginative a period the second decade of this century was.

This scent is one of a kind! Why? Nothing smells like it!
Is it a bit linear? Yes! Will it Garner compliments? HELL YEAH!

First time I smelled Dior Sauvage, I thought: This is a really beautiful fruity fresh scent. It's hard to discern top to bottom notes as the scent does not evolve so much on your skin, but I get a lot of bergamot which gives it this clean zest and the lavender settles in which comes and creates that perfect blend. Finally, I got a sense of the vetiver and patchouli in this fragrance which comes and creates this out of the shower feel some people are referring to when reviewing this scent.

Finally, This scent is for people who do not like taking risks. It won't take you to the wild side as the name Sauvage suggests, but it sure does make the women go wild!

Scent: 9/10 Smells Amazing!
Longevity: 7/10 Lasts anywhere between 4-6 hours.
Projection: 8/10 Trust me, people will smell it!
Sillage: 8/10 Lingers in the air.

I was so curious to smell Dior Sauvage when it was first released due to the controversy.. When I finally got my nose on it I wasn't sure what to think.. Sauvage smelled very fresh but very sharp! After having tried it on skin a few more times I really actually am enjoying this fragrance.. I think it smells extremely pleasant!
If anyone who owns & is willing to do away with it, I have a bunch of fragrances I am willing to swap for your Dior Sauvage..

This is a straight up overload of ambroxan. That's it. There's a little bit of pepper and lavender to freshen it up in the opening, but 95 percent of this fragrance is ambroxan which is about as unnatural smelling as you can get. If you overspray this people will complain so less is more with Sauvage. Overall this fragrance is unique because it has zero citrus and an absolute shit ton of ambroxan. If you don't like synthetic fragrance don't go near this one. Save your money and buy something from the Cartier Declaration line or the superior Terre d'Hermes line.

Sooo gorgeous! Delicious, light, comfortable, natural.... After the first minutes it gets a kind of feminine... It was my first thought because it becomes a bit sweet as the time goes by... Anyway, I think it's not a macho-masculine type of scent, it's very weareable by women as well.

A fresh, light, dreamy, creamy citrus smell.

I don't love it but I give it two big thumbs up for the so likable smell.

People who disliked this thought when Christian Dior teamed up with Johnny Depp that they would break ground & create an edgy, earth-shattering new smell, but they were disappointed & expressed it as "dislike".

It's actually a very nice smell.

I tried it because I assumed it was linked to Eau Sauvage. I strolled down to get a sample on my wrist one day during lunch. I was shocked by it at first since Eau Sauvage was the basis of my expectation, but I found myself going back to my wrist all afternoon to smell the sample.

A bit linear yes, but I enjoyed it so much I wound up buying my own a few weeks later and plan to use it liberally once the weather starts to cool down.

Bugsbunny right, Eau Sauvage has nothing to do with Sauvage and vice versa. The brand new release Sauvage just uses the name so it can piggyback on the reputation of of the classic from the 60's. One of the reasons why Sauvage is annoying to some enthusiasts.

The 2012 version in a "green" bottle is Eau Sauvage Parfum, which has nothing to do with Sauvage.

You know I will never no how people's noses can be so different. This is a pleasant, less formal and not as hard edged as the 2012 version. I have the 2012 in green bottle and yes maybe less synthetic,whatever that means. I think 99% of people you come in contact with won't know or care,just a very smooth linear scent that is not harsh and will get compliment's. I think many of you should give fragrances a chance, take time off from it go back to it. You may like it as much as I do. It is a pleasant subtle escape from all that darn citrus stuff.

Just a "heads up" for those of you who are on a budget: the far drydown of Berlin by Playboy is rather similar, a bit less marine and weaker than Sauvage. If the prices were close I wouldn't even mention it, and I'm not a huge fan of either one, as I'm more of a gourmand and oriental person.

So I bougth this and have been testing it, my first impresion was that I hated it, now after having it in my rotation and having the full bottle, I just dont get it, its syntethic, its linear, It doesnt project on my skin and nobody even notice it on me.

I do get some sweet nice effect in the drydown that is nice but at that point is pointless cuz theres no projection. A lot of guys are saying this gets massive compliments but I just dont see how.

I will give it more time, maybe wearing it at nigth or something, I will keep testing it, but as for now I just dont get this fragance, I feel like I bathed in axe spray, thats what is happening.

I just received a bottle of this in a trade and wanted to note the unique atomizer. It sprays the typical amount, but it's aerosolized to create a very fine mist with amazing coverage. I think this is the key to appreciating the fragrance. I had a small splash bottle initially and only used it as such...it creates a HUGE difference in the fragrance's interpretation. When it's more widely dispersed no particular note becomes overbearing or cloying.

My experience is that this fragrance is nothing really complex etc. and also it reminds me a lot of some soaps for men. The performance is pretty good for a fresh scent but i think in some years this will be roformulated...(just imo) it does the job, it is a good people pleaser. But (to give an example of how "normal" this scent is to me) i would not wear it to my wedding or to really impress a woman...it smells not like class it just smells clean, fresh, nice and a bit too mainstream to impress a special person

This fragrance is very linear, the same notes you get in the opening it'll last til its drydown. On my skin it smells very generic, very similar to one of those Axe deodorants. I didn't get the similarity to BdC or to Aventus.
Don't blind buy it.
Besides, apart from smelling Axe generic, it also smells like a teenager. It's not safe for a guy in his mid 20s to wear it, seriously.
There are far better colognes for a better price.

Edit:

Opens up fresh citrus backed with some pepper, sweetness, soapy & a metallic vibe. There is not much development here, it loses a touch of citrus & becomes more soapy, peppery & woody.

Its a modern take on fragrances like Azzaro pour homme, GIT & others. It may well be regarded as a classic barbershop fragrance in the decades to follow.

Definitely a crowd pleaser.

The whole business about women love this? Totally true. At least this woman does. (Boyfriend grabs at bottle) Oh no, sweetheart, not on you! This is for me to wear!

Let's just be clear about this... women seriously love this scent! I know it's been stated already in the reviews below but a lot of guys say that about a lot of scents, like Aventus for example. When in reality, Aventus is more of a MANTY dropper than a PANTY dropper. Sure women think it's alright but it's mostly men gettin' all giddy over it, especially the fragheads... not this stuff though!

In a nutshell, I've gotten more compliments on this in only a couple months of owning it than the rest of my fragrances combined, (feel free to take a gander) excluding Oud Wood, which I get plenty of compliments on but not as much as this. While my collection so far isn't the most impressive, it sure as hell ain't weak. It's good enough to be totally surprised that Sauvage would be killing them as far as women's attention. My gf also says this is easily her favorite fragrance in my collection, so... when they say women love this stuff... it's no joke.

I have to admit that it was not love at first sight. The first time I tried it was on paper and I did not like, but there was something interesting hiding in that smell. Some months later I gave it another try on my skin and the story was different. I felt the citrus smell and I guess a kind of peppery smell. It smells also clean. I wish it last longer. Then I decided to buy it, and I´m having a nice time with it. I love it.

A thought after months of wearing it: Please dear God, don't let it ever be reformulated.

Almost love at first sight!

Unlike many complains here, it impressed me! Well, I do agree with people if that's not something so eccentric that we used to expect from Dior house like the way we experienced Eau Sauvage, Fahrenheit and Homme; This is the same story as of Dior Higher, Dior Dune, Chanel Allure Sport and Bleu de Chanel: Not really that novelty we were used to see, but still a definitely divine, lovely and high quality scents, in Dior and Chanel high order.

It is simple and has a very linear scent: it almost stays the same from the very top phase to the end of the base: At first you have a very juicy lime scent, a little sweet and mixed with a pinch of pepper and a touch of wood. Soon it turns into a sea breeze (even if you're in a pretty dry place and several hundred miles away from the coastline) and stimulates the feel of a summer breeze from the sea, thanks to the ambroxan.

Finally, at the base phase, you have the same scent minus aquatic notes, while the lime is sour now and no more sweet. Spice and woody note are all standing by you giving you the real feeling of a dry place and sea fades away. Quite nose-stroking and bringing you joy all the way.

Longevity is about 30 hours on my skin (yes, Thirty!), while the projection is good for about 7-8 hours, then turns gradually soft.

It is quite great for spring and fall time, yet pretty nice for summer, but I doubt recommending it for the chill season.

Just another masterpiece from Mr. Demachy and entirely a great package, overall.

The flacon shape and paint is just simple and beautiful. The cap is magnetic with the new Christian Dior logo that gives you a great feeling, anytime you look at it. Dior DNA is present in every single element of this cutie.

Lest I forget, this time, Dior has employed the same old trick as of Chanel: the amount of sprayed liquid from the flacon has increased almost twice: this would spray about twice the usual amount within each whiff, resulting you to feel the frag has more longevity and projection, while it results more consuming and would end it earlier, so you go buying it more and more! ;-)

9 of 10; Lost one point just because of a minor flaw in the projection aspect. I would ignore and forgive the spraying trick in favor of such a wonderful creature!

Went to Sephora to sniff some new things, which I got samples of. On the way out, since I wasn't wearing anything, decided to give this a try from their tester since the reviews and notes sound interesting to me.

Two squirts per arm and three on the neck. Could barely smell anything other than faint fruity sweetness for two hours. Seven squirts seems like it should have been more than enough to make an impression, but I could barely smell it on myself, other than that faint fruity sweetness. I found it boring and decided to shower and scrub it off to try one of my other samples instead.

From what I've read, this sounds like it would be right up my alley, so why do I find it so boring? I'll try it again someday, but for now am very unimpressed.

After 3 times trying this in different climate conditions, I found it a very beautiful and unique fragrance. It is well formulated and some popular notes masterfully mixed together. Performance is way above average and without doubt it is modern. I clearly feel bergamot, lavender, germanium, ambroxan and mostly pepper. It has that aquatic feeling, it is not aquatic in fact though. I think Monsieur Demachy has already lifted the expectations but it is still a good product from Dior.

Finally got to experience Sauvage for the first time two-three weeks ago.at the top I did get a slight fruity vibe,but you have to catch it very fast before it gets away.after about the first two minutes there wasn't any fruitiness left whatsoever.once that dissapears I get straight up Amber and Lavender.which I think is just all so beautiful of a combo.so far it has gotten me numerous compliments.its safe to say women love this stuff everybody.overall longevity for me is about 10 hours.I can smell it on my skin after about 6 and a half hours.another great fragrance by the house of Dior and its well worth the money.you gotta try this juice.
10/10 fragrance.

Every half-decade gets the aromatic fougere it deserves.....

Going beyond the retro-feel of fougeres in recent years - YSL's Rive Gauche PH, Narciso Rodriguez For Him and Penhaligon's Satorial to name a few - this one comes to us as Dior's first real aromatic fougere. If anything, this absence of the usual male perfume genre in their roster is indicative of how the house has pretty much defined its own path over the years - and pathbreakers like Fahrenheit and Dior Homme have helped carve that reputation.

So though Sauvage may cause a lover of those Dior previous fragrances - and more - to balk at the marketing rehash of the 'Sauvage' name, the seemingly generic and mainstream nature of the immediate scent, and the way the composition reiterates some aspects of 'killer frags' in recent years, it still needs to be considered as a fragrance in itself. Regardless of bottle, Depp, ratings and repute, or the fact that the fragrance has the feel of something devised by a marketing survey (being more 'department-store' than 'barber-shop'), it is still necessary to consider it in itself in terms of how it smells over time.

For me, on a completely personal level, the scent is immediately appealing and does remind me of some great fragrances of the past: Kenzo Pour Homme's dark-blue seaweed-like aspects are suggested by the ambroxan, possibly due to the combination with wood and galbanum; without doubt I also get some of Rive Gauche's dark, clean and long-lasting lavendar dry-down. But it would be unfair to not add that Sauvage most definitely has its own character as well. And that character is actually quite distinctive when you get used to it and wear it over a longer period.

Sauvage was never going to break the mould in the way of previous Dior releases and many will feel that it is a sell-out on the part of the house as such. However, you have to ask yourself, on a pragmatic level, how would it be possible for Dior to challenge the continued market dominance of Bleu de Chanel when it is clear that the mainstream is not ready for another Fahrenheit and really only buys what it already is familiar with? In that marketing dilemma, Sauvage will be seen as a very considerable success if it continues to sell.

The pros? Dior Sauvage actually smells very good in the dry-down (much better than BdC which has always given me a swimming-pool vibe). It also performs very well, with lovely sillage and good longevity.

Finally, as Dior's first real aromatic fougere, this returns the house to mainstream masculine appreciation for the first time since Fahrenheit. Yes, it may not be as bold as that eternal classic, but such may be the nature of how our times have changed so much in the last quarter century anyway.

Bottle worthy for masculine fougere lovers.....

Very nice addition to the market and the dry down seems to have many of the same characteristics of Cedrat Boise. It gets compliments and is perfect for a wide range of settings and events...Its the home run the fragrance market needed!

Sauvage is quite an interesting scent. Perhaps not so much because of the smell as everything else surrounding it. Might I say that on my skin, this stuff is one of the longest lasting colognes I've ever had. Only three sprays to the back of my neck gave me wafts of it all day long. To my utter surprise, I STILL smelled it very well after a shower and a nighttime bike ride. This juice just does not quit! What's also so interesting is that it seems to be a crowd pleaser that isn't pleasing a very specific crowd- hardcore fragrance aficionados. And in that sense, Dior has failed, and failed very horribly. This is one of the least respected scents in the community as of late. However, in terms of attracting the admiration of the female sex, Dior has succeeded. Very, very much so. Women just seem so inherently attracted to the warmth and spice of amber. Bottle that with strong performance and you have yourself a superb, bestselling cologne. Now of course a very fair criticism would be that so many other, cheaper colognes can achieve the same effect on women. This is true. However, I couldn't imagine having just one fragrance to wear all the time, so having this in rotation isn't at all a mistake.

What a sad little fragrance. Dior is the best house for designer fragrances in my opinion, but this is horrid and hands down their worst men's offering. It smells like Axe/Lynx bodyspray or Chanel's boring sellout men's fragrances (Bleu, Platinum Egoïste). Although painfully generic, it does draw good attention. I sprayed this on myself and my cringing and scoffing was interrupted by two women asking what lovely fragrance I just sprayed.

Fine for teens/college age up to mid/late 20s, but don't even dare wear this as a mature male. This is Dior's attempt at capturing the youth market which it appears they've succeeded at, but it's clearly a bottom of the line fragrance for Dior.

Ok so this fragrance does not really do anything for me but I was given it as a gift for a favor I did so I took it. The moment I put this on I thought to myself, this is going to be a boring day, pretty normal spicy citrus scent that has been done a millions times before. Got better as the citrus went a way but nothing groundbreaking really. Then something really interesting happened. I went to the doctors office and immediately was bombarded with questions like what's that cologne you're wearing and you smell so good by every nurse in the office. I was amazed. Then I went and got my hair cut and all the stylists were talking about my amazing smell. The way I would describe this scent would be the best scent to wear if you want to have an affair. You basically have the attention of every girl within the few feet this projects. Add that to the I'm taken attitude and it's just ridiculous.

Disclaimer: I do not endorse having affairs.

Another polarising fragrance from Dior. Just like other releases from the house, you either love it or you hate it. Me? I'm on the love train.

I don't love it for the blend. In an artistic sense, the composition is nothing special and cannot hold a candle to other releases like say Fahrenheit or Dior Homme Intense. That's why so many people in the community are hating on this fragrance. This failed to meet a high expectation. That being said, the reason I bought a bottle of this is because it preforms really well on my skin, it's very versatile, and it's just a generally pleasing scent. I was back and forth between this and BdC, and finally settled on this because this just performs better than either the EdT or EdP version of BdC, even if BdC is a better blend of notes.

It does have a slightly synthetic sweetness to it, but it's not that obnoxious Paco Rabanne style bubblegum sweetness. The top also has a sharp citrus to it, but as time goes on it gets less pronounced. I get whiffs of pepper here and there, but I don't find pepper to be a very pronounced note here. It dries down to a pleasant, clean, slightly sweet albeit synthetic smell. People hate on it for the fact that it smells synthetic, but this is still a people pleaser and a compliment getter with good performance. If you're not a pompous fume head that owns 100+ niche scents and doesn't even like half of them, give this stuff a try.

The overwhelming dislike bar made it way too interesting to me to pass up. It's a cologne cited as being a major compliment receiver by many prominent members of the fragrance community, and I had to go to Macy's to have a smell. I've heard it described as "handsome in a bottle." Whoa boy, that's not at all a poor description! This is a very well blended, spicy piece of sophistication. I'd say men 20+ would be able to pull it off well. It's not at all what I expected and perhaps not even something I'd initially be too interested in. Call it the hype, but I had to order myself a bottle. I can't stop smelling myself and I can't wait to see what the ladies think!

Okay lets be honest. For some reason, women LOVE the smell of Sauvage. I'll agree, it's not the most creative piece by Dior, but in no way is this a bad smelling fragrance like many of the reviews suggest.

This is one of the best preforming fragrances thats been released recently. I would say longevity is on par with some Paco Rabanne fragrances, however; I get different longevity and smells when on my skin vs on clothes.

On clothes the scent is relatively linear. The citrus note lingers with the pepper and ambroxan which I absolutely love. I think this is the scent that women adore...the fruits mixed with floral and pepper. The top notes are very similar to the Scent of Peace by Bond 9, but I prefer Sauvage because the pepper adds a bit more mystery and masculinity.

On my skin I smell the citrus for about 30min and then it dies down into just floral peppery notes...almost reminiscent of laundry detergent lol. I'm not sure if its obligatory fatigue or using this fragrance in colder weather instead of hot -- but women still say it smells good like this. I personally prefer the smell on clothes.

If you're looking for compliments this is a definite buy. You can use it on any occasion as well. Currently working on a 60ml bottle and plan to purchase a few 100ml before it gets reformulated!

First of all I use this fragrance when I meet people in daytime. I got many compliments with it. Personally I don't think the smell deserves the money and brand name. It's a bad scent for Dior. Apart from the money the smell is average. I can understand all the bad reviews here. BUT, many people love this smell. Women love it.

I wrote a review long ago and I said the scent isn't that good. Last month I sprayed it again and my female friends loved it. If this was a fragrance by another house without that much reputation the ratings would be good. So if you don't care about Dior releasing this fragrance or you are not a guy who is obsessed with niche quality fragrances just buy it. People especially women will love it.

I don't understand why this has a lot of mixed reviews. I rather like it. I think it is very unique and nothing in my arsenal resembles it. It's very heavy on the amber but I feel tastefully done. I get a ton of compliments on this one and not only do the ladies like it but the men do too. If you are looking for a niche fragrance quit looking at designer fragrances people.

Great writing @SamAngelo, you are right on many points. This is a scent to appeal to the masses. For the women who don't mind to picture a polished douchebag fresh out of the gym. To many of them it is attractive. One youtube reviewer likened it to men’s requests to their women to dress sometimes like a house maid or something for some, erm, special moments. Some women might find it degrading to their personality, some might enjoy it. Same for Sauvage.

It's the fourth time my review on this frag has been deleted.
What the hell is this ?

By the way, it was not a very interesting review from myself :
I can resume the feeling this frag inspires me in a single word,

BORING

Enough said.



PS : the fragrance itself is not a disaster, but if you consider this comes from the Dior house it is a shame. That could be the reason why all of us that do not usually post a bad review on a frag that doesn't catch our attention, decided to claim that this one is a joke. A good anti perspirant spray, nothing more. Seems that all great brands are launching crowd pleasers nowadays. Dior is no exception... A lot of people are pleased with that, and Dior makes a lot of money... Great, but here people love perfume and talk about pleasure and art, not "good smelling" stuff made only to remunerate stockholders. The conclusion is that mainstream perfumes are becoming mass product goods, in a bad, bad way. So perfumistas have to move to "niche" and expensive brands or collections from the sames houses to get something really nice. I remember some years ago when you could find risky fragrances at the Sephora, and now you find those synthetic, generic, "identityless" best sellers everywhere... Yes i am upset to see what affordable perfumery is becoming.

Not a masterpiece, because it smells synthetic but a great blend of ingredients to make a great men fragrance.

Sexy smelling, moderate lasting and it combines with a little bit of (not too much obviously) sweat, it is a great fragrance for summer.

Not great when sprayed, it smells better after 10 or 15 minutes.

Great projection.
Good job Dior.

I'm just gonna throw it out there. I don't like the top notes even one bit. It opens with a really really really strong citrus scent and I don't need a perfume to compete with my car freshener at all. BUT, after 15 minutes or so, the citrus scent are gone without any trace and the dry down, lets talk about the dry down. Oh boy how wonderful that dry down smells.
I wear men's perfume in a casual daily basis when I don't need to meet anyone for any formal things but I gotta say I might use this anyway. There's something about this scent that makes me wanna sniffs myself. I even ended up spraying it on my wrist too so I can sniffs it throughout the day; I only do that with two perfume: Narciso Rodriguez for her EDP and this one.
It also lasts a long time on my skin. I can feel my friends sniffs it slowly when they're around me but couldn't point out where the scent came from, so I'm gonna say the silage is moderate. Its noticeable without screaming "I'M HERE!"
Overall, another great blind-buy for me. I'm just gonna remind myself to spray it before I leave home instead of before stepping out of the car like I usually do with other perfumes. Can't wait to find any random occasion to buy an extra bottle for my man. Lovely, lovely scent.

I love this stuff. Im hoping more people dislike this enough NOT to buy it so it remains semi-exlcusive to me. Ambery, slight citrus, musky aromatic... the accords of my favorite fragrances all in one bottle. I get compliments from ladies often wearing scents but this one additonally gets even the most discriminating non-frag liking homeboys in the office complimenting me. Ive been called a 'walking public service' wearing this. It is a Signature scent for sure.

Fragrance has so many dislike?? In where Fragantica or Basenote? Most fragrance user don't read or add a review on these fragrance site..so it could represent all fragrance user or sometimes it just represent fragrance lovers community..Sauvage is nice fragrance..not a masterpiece from Dior but clearly it's compliment machine..girls love it, sillage, projection and longevity are good which is rare for this kind of fragrance, fresh and crisp ..since i live in tropical climate, Sauvage is perfect for me along with Bvlgari Aqva Amara ( surprisingly not very popular in communities)

Yeah, but if you compare the reviews here to the reviews on other sites, like Sephora, Amazon, and Macy's, you'll see that Sauvage generally does get good reviews, it's even won a couple of awards. There's mainly a disagreement with some members in the "fraghead" community for whatever reasons.

If somebody doesn't like a fragrance I love, that's fine. I don't need to do them down and I'd hope for the same in return. Sauvage doesn't work for me but I've smelt it on others and it's smelt fantastic. Each to their own.

These discussions are eternal and are always the same. Sometimes they become unpleasant and sometimes are very funny (to me, this is the case now).

Honestly, I do not like Sauvage. Honestly, it seems a bad perfume, basically because I is not pleasant. It is also true that there are worse for my taste. But all this is mere personal opinion. It depends on what one is accustomed to smell, their tastes, expectations of a perfume. All this is different for each person, including why we put perfume is very different for each of eachother.

What should not be lost is never respect. People who do like Sauvage, does not have to be inexperienced or have bad taste, or anything. Those who do not like, we do not have to be all snoobs. This seems not to be a snoob, you have to like "Sauvage" when I would read some if this perfume was not of "Dior" but a little known brand.

I am also in agreement that there perfume "niche" of $ 300 that are a mess and a total absurdity pay the price. Personally and for instance, I'm not a supporter of "Creed" but while I dislike their perfumes and I seem to have a disproportionate price, respect for people who love the brand, etc .. and I'm not going to say that I think about snoobs, because all I was doing, is to be showing my ignorance and immaturity.

But hey, I believe I have digressed from more ...

Anyway, that's what this site. To express our feelings and experiences, always with respect.

Peace and love, brothers.

Smdh... The amount of pretentiousness and snobbery on this site is astounding! All the kid meant was your average person, and not on a fragrance site find it hard to dislike sauvage. It's no wonder I'm so unwilling to try out most of these $400 bottles of niche.

Anyway, what we have here is a decent, but common fresh fragrance, with a dark and spicy twist. Very similar to bdc, but sauvage goes in a spicier direction where bdc has that incense layer to it. All in all, it's a good scent that the chicks will love smelling and it's hard to go wrong with.

To be honest i do not like this fragrance like many others, reason its over generic(bland), to much Amberoxon , dull and weird type of fresh which smells like every second shower Gel in the market, trust me if this scent was not under the banner of Dior this might have Discontinued by now. Is it a crowd pleaser? yes for the below average masses. Does it stand tall among the other main stream Fragrances if the Dior banner is removed? Not even 5 mins!...Is it better then BDC? Yes but only performance wise. Is it over priced?? Indeed yes.Do i have in my collection? Yes 100ml as i like the bottle and i m a collector... Will i ever use? May be some time in future at gym may be. Would i recommend this to any one? Yes to the main stream teenagers.

Ok boys and girls, today we are going to discuss why the newest release from the house of Dior is causing so much controversy. Ready? Lets get started:
1) Dior has always been the house that releases something new and different. In the days of boring aquatics, they bust out Fahrenheit. In the days of super-masculine scents, they drop Dior Homme. Result? Dior Sauvage gets so much hate because it is a crowd-pleasing generic profit maker. Nothing daring, nothing against the grain.
2) Sauvage by name alone, bears resemblance to one of the great releases from the house, Eau Sauvage, but is totally different in all aspects. Result? Misleading name causes hate and steals the name of a classic fragrance.
3) Sauvage looks like the bottles from the Privee line. They are super high-end and Sauvage is misleading in design especially since it is generic and highly synthetic. The design seems to be aimed at making it seem more expensive than it is, allowing for higher prices to be charged. Result? The community feels taken advantage of.

Once again people are taking my review out of context. I never stated that it is a unique, one of a kind fragrance. There may well be fragrances out there that have the same vibe and performance as Sauvage, albeit at less the price. I haven't smelt those ones that you mentioned because they are less well known than something that comes from the house of Dior, and I'm allowed to voice my opinion on the latter. So please read my review thoroughly before you accuse me.

Thank you

@Gazza97:

What I don't understand is all the reviews saying it's a great performer and it smells good. There are thousands of other "masculine" scents that have excellent longevity and projection, and smelling good is obviously subjective (Sauvage uses a lot of ambroxan, so if you find that aroma chemical irritating, it's highly likely you will dislike the scent, perhaps intensely!). I have several Playboy scents that cost me $5 or less per 100 ml and I enjoy them (and they are also excellent "performers"), and I don't have to deal with a lot of ambroxan with those. So, if you really enjoy Sauvage, that's great for you and I'm glad to hear it, but to act like it's the only scent that is an excellent "performer" or that smells "nice" is ridiculous, IMO.

So this seems to get compared to a couple scents more so than others in particular.

1. Aventus.. Personally after the initial spray/maybe 5 mins. I see no similarity what so ever.

2. Bleu de chanel.... Well in terms of the community tends to hate it, but people in real life like it. Then yep very similar.


Personally for me and maybe ill sound out there for saying this. But mind you im not in anyway saying they smell the same, but in terms of a "vibe" this kinda reminds me of oud wood. Why?

Well its that sichaun pepper sorta kick to it. Oud wood has that vibe of smelling clean, but still a bit of stank to it to make it potentially(And generally to most who smell it)sexy to others. And thats the same thing here, sauvage smells clean, but theres a distinct kick/stank to it still I think which makes it more "interesting" or "sexy" and gives it some character.

Personally, doesnt do anything for me. And is just ok. But admittedly people do tend to like it for sure.

It's almost impossible to dislike this fragrance. Yes it may be slightly 'generic', but come on, this just smells amazing. The performance is really good too. I got a solid 7 hours from this and it was still projecting pretty well from the 4 hour mark! This surpasses Bleu de Chanel IMO.

I tried this on test cards in the store a few times and never got the hype. I decided to give it an on-skin test and hoped for the best. I sprayed 3 times on my wrist and inner arm.

I have to say, it really opens up a lot after a short time on the skin and I do like it more in the dry down than the opening. It has this strange citrusy, sweet smell that really reminds me of something like insect repellent. Not in a bad way, more in a familiar way. But it does ruin my ability to enjoy the fragrance.

Performance wise I would say silage is normal for a modern scent on this style, i.e. Pretty weak. Longevity is good, around 8 hours on my skin on a warm day (25° C).

Also, just to be clear, I'm no snob to this kind of fragrance. In fact I really wanted to like it a lot and am a bit disapointed it's not for me as others have had such great things to say.

I wonder why all the hate for this Dior fragrance. It smells just fine and with Dior, it usually lasts for quite some time on skin because they use more oils for their scents. I love this scent and I will buy a big bottle later even if it breaks the bank. It's around 100+ usd here for the 100ml.

A controversial scent, made even more controversial recently thanks to the domestic violence allegations against the face of Dior's campaign, Johnny Depp. I'll try to set that aside in this review and focus on the scent.

Sauvage is not the type of fragrance I would usually gravitate towards - I'm a fan of the '80s classics, and when I do fresh, I do it '90s style. I only tried Sauvage because the lady at the perfume counter at my local department store gave me a 1ml sample. Then, by chance, a 100ml bottle mistakenly arrived with an online perfume order I'd made (shh, don't tell anyone!) so now it's in my wardrobe.

Sauvage is a sweet, fresh, spicy scent. I find it hard to pick apart the individual notes, but there's definitely pink pepper, bergamot and lavender in there. I don't know where all the sweetness comes from, but I will say it is pleasant compared with the sweetness in many modern scents. It isn't at all gourmand. Yes, Sauvage is a synthetic-smelling scent, but not in screechy or offensive way. The ingredients are clearly quality. It's a pleasant, easy-wearing men's fragrance.

Where Sauvage really shines is in its performance. A few sprays easily lasts all day, with moderate projection for the first few hours. That's no small feat for a contemporary scent, many of which fade into oblivion within hours. It's also very versatile. Hot or cold, day or night, dressed up or dressed down, at the office or out on the town - you could wear this anywhere without raising eyebrows. You'll probably get a few compliments along the way.

The bottle is also very nice - a solid mass of nicely gradiated glass with a magnetic cap. It looks and feels quality.

The lady at the perfume counter told me this was one of their best sellers right now. I can see why. That said, it's definitely one for the younger man. I can pull this off as a 32-year-old man, but I wouldn't want to wear this if I was 52. Sorry, Johnny, it's just not for you.

I received a paper sample of this. Sorry antonpan.
Ready, boys?

Straight up laundry detergent, which isn't a bad thing.
Remember that laundry detergent is already scented with perfumes, and not the other way around.
It has a strong screechy lavender note in the beginning that turns sweet when applied to the skin.

A very clean smelling cologne, indeed. I would have to test it in person for the complete notes, but if there is musk and vetiver in the dry down as I read, you've got yourself a nice clean guy who is a little naughty. ;)

First off, I would like to say that I can understand why there is so much negativity regarding this fragrance. This is one of those fragrances that took me a good amount of testing to fully understand what this fragrance has to offer.

There is a sharpness to the scent blended nicely with some soothing notes on top. This fragrance dries down quite nicely but looses it's sweet smoothness very quickly. Smelled at a close distance I find it almost repulsive due to it's strong and synthetic nature- I think this is where the fragrance gets most of it's hate. This fragrance really shines in it's sillage. Spraying this on my brother and smelling him from a distance smelled great!

Cons: This fragrance is very strong and will stain my clothes of an unpleasant alcohol smell. The smell is not very linear, which is fine, but the drydown tends to smell too much like a piercing synthetic alcohol musk-ish odor but what can you expect with a $90 designer fragrance.

I would easily have paid more than twice the price had this fragrance been produced with niche quality.

Overall 8.5/10 - Great bang for your buck here. It would be silly to expect more from a designer fragrance.

I was looking to buy a summer scent. Sprayed Sauvage on the right wrist and Nautica Voyage(old formulation) on the left. The opening of sauvage is too sharp and too rich. It overwhelms your olefactory senses. And to my nose it is far from being a generic fragrance. What I noticed was this smelt really good when you don't try to smell it but when you get accidental whiffs of it instead. If you stick your nose to the scented part of your skin it's gonna smell weird. But the genius of Sauvage is how it disperses in the air around you.

Voyage has a bad opening, Period. But past the 15 minute mark it smells extremely pleasing. Doesn't fill up your senses like Sauvage but hits some really sweet spots.loved this one. Though I ended up buying Sauvage since I did NOT want something generic. And this is the reason I feel years down the road this smell will bring back memories of 2016 summer. Because this is so different. It might have a certain generic vibe but the scent is unique.

And it lasts. Lasts 12 hours + on my skin.

Got a sample at Sephora, the woman working there said it was her favorite mens cologne. Women do love it. Opens up with a blast of Bergamot, settles into a semi sour, citrusy fresh dryer sheets. It's not the most creative fragrance but it does smell really pleasant in the heat. Very clean and modern. It reminds me of Bleu de Chanel but more playful. I dont understand the hate, not everything is a masterpiece like Dior Homme Intense, sometimes you just want to smell clean and fresh. 8/10

My most complimented fragrance. Everyone just loves this scent. This is my weekend scent whenever I go out with my friends. It just smells fresh and clean and what a man is suppose to smell like. However, you would not want to wear this on a date or whenever you go out with your girlfriend as it might be a little too strong. But if you just want to get compliments from women at the bar, the super market, or the mall Dior Sauvage is perfect for you.

When I smelled this for the first time from Sephora, I hated it. I smelled generic and unattractive. But, looking at the reviews, I decided to try this perfume out. So I bought this and tried this out. Trust me, until now, I don't like it at all. It gives out fresh spicy note in the beginning that makes your feel super fresh and super clean. When it dries, it gives amber note. But, I've received so much compliments from the ladies. I gained so much compliments in a day with Dior Sauvage alone. This really amazed me as people say I smelled fresh, sexy and calming to them. I usually use it as a high heat scent as it really projects and lasts on me. Lasts more than 12 hours on me and the silage too is pretty good for a fresh scent. This will be an all rounder scent as it can be worn day and night with any occasions and any seasons. Overall rating will be:

Scent : 7/10
Silage : 10/10
Longevity : 10/10
Versatility : 10/10
Packaging : 8/10

When I first smelled Sauvage in the store I was dissapointed as I also expected something very special. It seemed boring and smelt like something I have smelt many times before. After some weeks I decided to spray it on my hand while shopping. And this changed completely my opinion about it.

It is much more sophisticated then you would originally think. When wearing you feel the quality of it and immediately you start feeling fresh and sexy. It became one of my favorite fragrances. You can wear it in every season and on every occasion. It suits a business men as much as a sporty guy. Very well done!

Well, it all depends on what everyone is accustomed to smell and fragrances you know.
If for you, "Miss Dior", or "Versace Pour Homme" or "D&G The One" are perfume "top" I think it is normal "Sauvage" is a great fragrance.
I think you understand me.

My husband just got a bottle of this and all I can say is Wow! IMO This stuff is amazing! It's like cat nip for me. It makes my head spin!
I didn't know a man could smell that sexy! It's pricy but very worth it. This stuff is just ...Wow! I can't imagine it gets any better than that.

I'm not an expert with men's fragrances, and have tested very few (maybe around 30) in comparison to women's fragrances. But to me, this woman's perspective: it's definitely a LOVE! It may also have to do with body chemistry as to why this works so well on my husband.

Just got some samples and tried a few times. The scent is synthetic to me. When I put it on at the first time (3 sprays), I feel dizzy :( I suggest two sprays on the wrist are enough. The projection is great and it is long lasting (over 6 hours). My opinion is this is a polarized fragrance, you will either love it or hate it.

Sorry that this is not my cup of tea.

Another gorgeous male perfume which everybody seems to hate, meh. I can't get enough of these hated fragrances because there is a certain algorithm behind it.

I'm a perfume addict owning a decent collection of perfumes myself, and my husband has only Sauvage and Invictus (is anyone surprised?) simply because 1) I wouldn't like him to wear something so common that everybody smells like my husband (I want a certain olfactory memory strictly affiliated with him), 2) I can't describe my hatred towards "cologne" like classic male fragrances which are very well liked by people hating this or Invictus, 3) To me a perfume must have a character, and at least 95% of all male fragrances lack it - they all smell the same, trying to give the same 2 impressions: "I'm some rich guy, CEO or something, going to bed and waking up wearing a suit" or "I'm just a guy trying to smell nice, so either this or Axe spray, but this one is expensive so I chose this one.". No. I like neither of those pretentious characters, there needs to be a certain degree of complexity.

So, I love Sauvage because it is not pretentious or generically safe. It doesn't impose a certain role on you, it becomes a part of you. And it lasts LONG. Love it.

Dior makes some great fragrances. This is not one of them. It's harsh in the opening and smells like ass in the dry down. By ass I mean "cologne guy smell". This is basically the equivalent of Tommy Hilfiger for men back in the 90's.

In my opinion, this is right below beast mode. It has amazing performance. I guess I can understand some of the hate but the scent itself is awesome to me. This one is very sexy and a very good compliment getter. People are going to smell you. More than 4 sprays and you've definitely over done it. Regarding the atomizer? ITS A BEAST. It sprays out a strong mist and you can pretty much decide how much you want mid-spray. By the way, women love this stuff.

Scent: 10/10
Longevity: Going to have to go 10/10 (8-10 hours easy on MY skin) 12+ hours on clothing.
Projection: 9/10 (Project strongly 3-4 feet within your personal space for the first 3-4 hours, then gets closer to the skin)
Versatility: 10/10 Anywhere, Anytime. Very classy and fresh.
Overall: 10/10 Very pleased with my purchase, I don't care if people hate it ;)

Like the reviewer below, I appreciate the performance of this for a fresh fragrance. Its not super beast mode, but for a fresher type scent on today's market it has good performance. Smell wise I am not a huge fan, but its got its appeal and charm to it. Its a synthetic smell that probably could grab attention like many bargain bin fragrances out there. Smell wise I think I prefer BDC and ADG essenza/profumo.
Sauvage isn't exactly a totally fresh fragrance. It has an overtone to it that smells a little ambery or tobacco or something rough around the edges. I have a vintage bottle of bleu de chanel, and that one is just more of a smooth, clean and calming scent that smells good.. Sauvage is more of a synthetic attention grabber type scent.

Scent- 3.5 / 5
Performance- 4/5

This often gets compared to Bleu De Chanel and although I think they smell significantly different, they are in the same category. I like the smell of both but personally prefer the smell of BDC

I just ran out of my bottle of BDC so when it came time for repurchase I chose Sauvage specifically for performance reasons. Even though I prefer the smell of BDC, the performance is noticeably weaker than it used to be, while Sauvage has great projection and awesome longevity.

So if you like Sauvage, stock up on it now because it's only a matter of time before it's reformulated.

So, I don't really understand all of the hate for Sauvage. Yes, I get that it is not "niche," it is not "higher end." Who cares? One or two sprays of this and it lasts for hours (which is more than I can say for a LOT of niche fragrances I have encountered). The scent is clean and crisp, and has a nice sexy edge to it.

Is it the best Dior has to offer? No.

Is it the worst? Definitely not.

It is nice for a daily, casual work scent, or a night out for a martini. Very versatile.

I honestly get so many compliments from it.

Smells very warm and fresh. Eminently likable. Projects and leaves a scent trail like few other modern fragrances.

I find it difficult for the wearer to enjoy !! If you spray your wrist, any closer than a foot away and it smells harsh and difficult. It hits its stride about 3 feet out, and others will easily pick it up. I found I became acclimatized to the scent quickly, and really had no way to experience it the way someone around me could. Its truly something to wear for others to notice, but not so much for yourself. That is great for many I'm sure.

I don't need it for that: I need to be able to enjoy it first and foremost, so thats a dealbreaker for me no matter how good it smelled. . It has too much projection and sillage for me anyway. That's not a criticism of course, that's just me.

Anyway, there's nothing to hate here. They way it can be used seems a bit restrictive to me, but of course it's going to be great for a younger set for nights out etc., as intended I would guess.

What a strange smell. There is something during the opening that repulses me, but I cannot detect what it is. I found myself recoiling slightly. The dry-down phase is not much better.

Sauvage is like a fragrance consciously designed to be "neutral." But for me, it crosses the line from mere neutrality, to become borderline unpleasant.

I am honestly starting to think that Dior has inserted "Secret Ingredient X" into this cologne - a pheromone probably - that explains all the attention-getting and compliments it garners.

But the bottom-line is: we cannot wear fragrances just to please others, or get compliments, or even to help us get laid. Number one, we must enjoy it ourselves.

Me, I will stick to my Aventus if I want to feel sexy and get compliments.

All I can say is WOW. And it isn't because of the smell. It is because of the compliments I get everytime I wear it. My other compliment getters can go a few wears with no compliments. Sauvage gives me multiple compliments EVERY TIME I wear it. Crazy

The smell is decant and the longevity is ok. But I wear this when I want to impress others more than myself.

I smell Sauvage on so many people now. Just as I thought in the beginning, it's becoming a huge success. If people aren't wearing it they're talking about how much they love it/want it. when this first came out, I read something from a smug Basenotes member that said soon it will be in TJ Maxx and Marshalls across the country. Yeah?.. I don't think so pal. LOL
I actually like it more than I use to. It has this strong, airy quality to it like Fierce and Platinum Egoiste.
Also (to me), BdC and Sauvage don't smell anything alike and are both equally distinguishable.

Ce parfum est bon certe, mais pour une courte durée, a mon avis la marque Christian Dior peut faire beaucoup mieux surtout en longévité et en projection du parfum car ce dernier ne tient pas aussi longtemps que la pub de Johnny Depp elle même... a peine 1h et le parfum se volatilise... il et bon avec son coté épicé, frais, ambré...
pas assez fort pour moi

COLD AND SHARP MANLY SCENT WITH GREAT PERFORMANCE

I had a sample of Dior Sauvage purchased along with many others. It's like kid's play to me: I get a bunch of samples once in a while and sniff them all at first opportunity. A few stood out and Dior Sauvage was definitely one of them, but because there were so many I kept on postponing to actually wear it.

Then, with high hopes I tapped it on my wrists on a cold late-winter day and... it was different. Different than what it smells in the bottle.

And so I gave it another shot, but decided I didn't like it.

Fast forward, a few months later to near-present day and I've tried this in warmer weather and it seems different. But most importantly, this time I accidentally wore much more of the stuff. And the magic happened. This thing has VERY little in common with Bleu de Chanel, and the ones who say it reminds the KING of perfumes, Aventus, is a fool, period.

That aside, though, I understand why people compare it to Bleu de Chanel. Both radiate with a commanding yet unoffensive presence and both are manly, sharp scents that convey the message that you are dealing with someone clean, with a slight edge. Dior Sauvage is the one with the more sporty feel of the two, with Bleu being a bit more formal, sweeter. To me, Bleu de Chanel sits a bit better at night, while Dior Sauvage is more of a daytime smell.

Interestingly, Aventus does not radiate as strong as BdC and Dior Sauvage, it sits closer to the skin and is best kept for those moments when you can have closer contact with people (which may not be an office environment). Creed Aventus is a drug from up close, but Dior Sauvage and BdC are more noticeable from afar.

As far as complexity goes, Dior Sauvage is a sporty, modern, manly EdT.

This is quite nice.
When I first tried it I thought it was a simplistic fabric softener kind of smell.
It is I guess, but a really really fresh, crisp, seductive, happy, DRY, confident, laid-back yet not lazy kind of fabric softener.
The more I wear this the more I get hooked to the smell.

The bottle is simple yet very pretty.

EDIT: I just realized... if you're on a budget and want a similar vibe, try Lalique Encre Noire Sport ... I call it Poor Man's Dior Sauvage... they are not the same and don't smell identical, but they give off a very similar vibe.

My opinion:
- I don't like it up close, it is very harsh and unpleasant, but it's only when you smell it directly off the skin, it's not a scent where you can sit and enjoy all it's nuances and flavors. But from a slight distance, it smells amazing! It måles very good sense to me that this is a compliment getter!
Niche heads are proberbly not going to like this, but "normal" people who don't know a lot about fragrances and notes, will proberbly like it :)

Scent 10/10
Performance in general 8/10
Bottle (the Sprayer is amazing) 8/10

All in all. 9,5/10

If you are insecure about if you should buy Dior Sauvage or not, read this!

The objective opinion:
This will be divided in 2 sections since they are very different.
I try not to include my own opinion.

Smell right from the skin (what you smell)
- It smells synthetic and metallic, it has the same "cheap" vibe as Curve (they don't smell similar at all) It is headache inducing and really not pleasant. It also smells very generic with a "signature" note in the back.

Smell of the whiff
- Not synthetic, not metallic, but smells like a crowd pleaser, it smells quite fresh and inoffensive.

Verdict:
- If you like the scent, but the syntheticness puts you off, then try to smell it from a distance, it smells way more natural. I guess That's why it get both hate and love, the whiff and the smell up close are very different from each other.

In the store it dried down a lot better. I cannot get passed the pepper note though. I also hate to say it, but it reminds me of pine sol for some reason.

Love it, but not at first sniff, I have to come back to the mall and sniff it again within 2 weeks, because it missed me so much. This smell is something i cant describe very well. All the time i sniff it, it has the Same DNA, all the time i mean more then 12 hours of longetivity. even if i wash my hands, I still can smell it. It reminds me some sweaty man, hot damn cute man after sunny day at work, clean but sweaty. Sexy Fragrance but not for everyone. Personally i Like it very much, so fresh, so spicy and Projection Enormous :)))
Well done Fracois. I am looking forward to another gem you make :)

Dior Sauvage surprised me in a good way when I got a hold of a sample recently. There's a few big name Dior fragrances like DHI that did not click with me, so I approached Sauvage with no expectations.

Despite having floral and lavender notes, I feel like there is nothing feminine about this. It's a strong masculine scent. Amber blended well with fresh, warm spiciness and a touch of citrus. Not a complex scent by any means, nor is it ground breaking, but it can't be denied that this is great smelling scent.

After going thru my sample I immediately ordered a bottle from Dior and am so pleased to be adding Sauvage to my collection. This is such a well done fragrance, one I can see becoming more and more popular.

You don't need many sprays, I feel like two or three is more than enough. The sprayer on the bottle is perfect. You can control how much is being sprayed. It's has great sillage and longevity on my skin and although I haven't had a chance yet to wear it in every type of weather I can see this performing well in anything except for high heat in the summer.

Maybe you're a niche snob. Maybe you've been smelling fragrances for decades and would consider this not worth the time or money. But if you're someone that enjoys simple, safe fragrances that will garner compliments and leave you smelling great throughout the day this may be worth checking out!

I have to call b.s. on the vast majority of negative reviews here. This may not be a groundbreaking, risk-taking fragrance. It is not your typical niche-quality juice from the house of Dior. But I have worn this on numerous occasions to bars, clubs, and social gatherings, and let me tell you: I have witnessed, first-hand, what this stuff does to women. I am gay, and I have minimal chemistry with the opposite sex, but women could not keep their hands off me. I don't know what it is about this scent, but it works.

If you're looking for compliments or positive attention from women, look no further. This stuff is dynamite. 8/10

I have a few samples of this and I must say to this date I am undecided with this scent, some days I enjoy the fresh smokey bergamot opening, other days sauvage strikes me nothing more than burning straw to my nose which becomes quite annoying after a while.

Does anybody get that burning sensation to their nose? Please let me know.

Let it be known that I am a huge Christian Dior fanboy. I went to the mall and sprayed this on my skin for the first time. I was wearing bleu de Chanel at the time. I sprayed it on and smelled my hand and I got a blast of the same fruity not you get in Aventus. The best way to describe this scent is a watered down Bleu de Chanel with a different citrus opening. Same dry down but with different citrus. Same metallic vibe and everything. To be honest, I prefer bleu de Chanel because it's fuller. Bleu de Chanel is generic, but Sausage make Bleu de Chanel look as complex as musc Ravegour. I don't know if generic is the right word. It's just basic. It's linear and metallic and synthetic. To a collector, it actually stinks because of how synthetic it is. To the average nose, it's a nasal orgasm. I hate wearing scents like Bleu de Chanel and allure Homme sport but it's what gets the compliments

Well this one certainly polarises opinion. I tried it when it first came out and, in line with some other reviews, found that it smelt like a cheap deodorant on my skin with quite a powdery vibe. Then, on a night out, my friend was wearing a wonderful smelling fragrance which turned out to be Sauvage. I was blown away by it. He gets more compliments from the ladies than any other fragrance he has worn. The performance was excellent too in terms of longevity and projection. A work colleague has started wearing it too and it smells just as good on him so I thought I would give it another try, but alas it still smelt the same as when I first tried it. So I think this one is very much dependent on the skin chemistry of the wearer as to whether it's a hit or miss. The moral of the story; don't be put off by negative reviews and make your own judgment. I only wished it worked so well on me!

I'll admit, when I first smelt Sauvage, it wasn't a particularly memorable experience. Although it had a nice sweet and fresh opening that had a mass appeal quality to it, I didn't (and still don't) consider it unique. So why did I end up buying it a few days later?

Sauvage opens with this metallically synthetic freshness that's reminiscent of the sweet pineapple note in the latest batches of Creed Aventus. While I get pineapple out of Aventus, Sauvage conjures up the image of peach rings. It's no Aventus, but I can certainly see why people make the comparison. While Aventus' sweetness smells succulent and natural, Sauvage's sweetness is derived from an abrasive synthetic note that's hard to pinpoint. But despite what you might think having read that last sentence, it smells remarkably good as it keeps drawing me back. You see, Sauvage is one of those scents that pulls off smelling synthetic but really good.

Thankfully the drydown introduces the note that really pulls this scent together. Ambroxan is a synthetic alternative to ambergris, but it manages to make Sauvage smell alluringly fizzy. It's no surprise it's been getting so many people compliments.

If you're considering purchasing this, take into consideration this is not a particularly unique scent in the way Fahrenheit and Dior Homme were. If you're adamantly against synthetic scents, maybe this is not for you, but remember that some of the best selling fragrances smell synthetic such as Acqua di Gio yet they're still revered within the fragrance community. Sauvage thankfully retains a lot of the Dior quality whilst creating a name for itself without any touch of Eau Sauvage or the rest of Dior's line. It's a captivating scent for the masses. Sometimes a scent needs to be appreciated on it's own merits, and I believe Sauvage does what it's intended to do very well.

As for performance, this is where this fragrance shines. 2 sprays is all you need (and all the people around you want). In fact, I'll probably scale back to one spray soon as this thing projects for hours on end. Two sprays gets me at least 6 hours of projection at arms length and a sillage trail that WILL fill a room. I would avoid wearing this scent for intimate occasions where your partner will be within arms reach of you as this can easily overpower her nose. It's synthetic nature might offend some especially when over applied.

I sorta' jumped on the bandwagen on this one. I smelled it when it first came out, and initially i did like the scent. However all the frag community was hating on it, so i passed on it. Then, i would take spritz of it every once in while, at sephora or dept stores...my 10yr old son even liked it, and he has a picky nose. Well, to make a long story short, i kept seeing how many positive reviews it was getting on utube, but negative reviews on fragantica, i was like, something is up. And DracDoc is one of my go-to guys in utube for certain decisions, and he gives it a thumbs up, so I went ahead and bought it. I wore it to work and already got 2 compliments on my first day! Its a clean safe scent, i totally get it, about it being kinda generic, or oldschool generic, its not groundbreaking at all, but its got something that just stands out, and the people around u will enjoy. If u do more than 4 sprays it will give u a major migraine, so go easy on the trigger! Also, this juice has major major lasting power, Typical of the Dior privee line, but in a non-niche status!!

I absolutely love this scent and don't really understand the amount of hate it gets. I personally think the scent is brilliant and really uplifting and bright, definitely doesn't smell like a 'synthetic mess' as people have labelled it. Longevity is pretty good at around 6 hours and people around you will love it. Really fresh but also has a lot of depth which sets it apart from the 'generic' fragrances for me. If you're not sure about it, go to a shop and try it, don't make a decision based on the reviews.

The top is just ok, and not a bad thing. However the dry down is ultra sophisticated and sexy to women. The heart of dusty pepper, lavender and patchouli give way to soft woods, and mostly a healthy dose of ambroxan and labdanum. The blend is incredible and the over all affect is one of pure genius. The slow oscillating pulse of pepper is being warmed and sweetened by labdanum and ambroxan. The natural scent of your skin mixes with this base, and is terrifyingly sexy to women. The pepper is at the perfect ratio to tickle a ladies fancy, and your likely to be eaten whole by your significant other wearing this juice. No joke... If you're wanting intimacy, this is the best new modern scent that you should go for. I would definitely say this is a everyday/romantic scent. The juice draws people closer, that's what it's supposed to do. It doesn't have any other purpose than to draw people closer. Simple as that, as babbs says.

It doesn't blow me away, but it does smell pretty good. It's very citrusy and fresh, perfect for the spring or summer. I don't care if it's synthetic or not, girls like it. That's all that matters in the end right? I also like how the bottle emulates Dior's private line bottles. Not as bad as people say it is. Give it a try! 7/10

I am not a snob - fantasy by britney is good to my nose as well as Tom
Fords private collection and many in between...

This was given as a birthday gift by someone who is not into scents. If I smelt it on someone else I would not be offended... It's nice. I've tried to like it I really have!

It's on my hand now and I can't tell you what it smells like...

I used to think wine snobs were pretentious idiots. As my love for scents have developed I begin to understand. Just like our muscles develop and strengthen through regular exercise so does our sense of smell.

This just doesn seem to have much depth or charatcter. It's easy to wear, office safe and suitable for all ages. The scent to buy the brother of uncle or dad...

There's nothing wrong with that!

But this isn't Farenheit, Poison or Dior Homme.

(Anyone in UK can have a 60ml bottle boxed with 59.5ml remaining - courtesy spray for the gifter - PM if interested)

I do not want to draw attention or be out of fragrances "mainstream". For me, and other users, just Sauvage is not pleasant.
How hard it is to understand?

I understand that the smell of "Sauvage" likes to other users, but it's not my case.
Metal and sweet notes,I find unpleasant. Very kind cheap"Axe".
Lasts longer than Bleu, longevity is good, in fact, but to my nose, it smells worse than Bleu and worse than some 20-30$ fragrances.
I do not want to smell like this, much less, that lasts "all day" ...

I am 56 years old but I never liked DIOR.
The Eau Sauvage line: Too harsh, too bitter.
The Fahrenheid line: Petroleum based. WTF. Repulsive!
The Dior man line: With Rouge as main note. That is feminine, not manly. Old ladys Feminine, like my mother or grandmother with their rouge mirror box, for their winter pale face.
Their stupid add with baby face Robert Pattinson, unshaved running on roof tops, in the middle of Summer with heavy metal music. Really? More like 65+ old lady dressed in black stepping out of limo in front of the Scala de Milano.
Dior Sauvage (2015) is an enhanced version of Bleu de Chanel EDT. Nothing more or nothing less.
A copycat but with far better longevity.
Since Bleu de Chanel EDT FOR ME (I only have over 60 fragrances) is by far the best Summer scence I have come across, Sauvage is what the EDP version of Bleu de Chanel should have been.
I bought it 2 weeks ago. My very first Dior and probably the last. It lasts all day.
But, as expect from DIOR fans, who do not really like parfums but only seaking attention by going extreme or out of mainstream, NOT their cup of tea.
I don't think it very dificcult to create a non mainstream fragrance. I suggest Dior to add a bit of Shaweca dogmeat to a fragrance I can guarantuee It is repulsive and will last all day with huge Sillage. And no one will smell like you.

Big fan. It's a refinement over scents that have been released that are similar over the years. It reminds me a lot of Joop! Homme Wild, Paco R. 1 Million, Spice Bomb, and Bleu De Channel. However, even though this juice is a bit generic like the scents I just mentioned, it holds back and is refined. It's like a grown up version that isn't too extreme or spicy. It's warm and fresh to me, not cooling. I get a warm pepper vibe from this, and a deep dark bergamot that I get in my bergamot beard oil. It's not as loud as the spicy club scents I just mentioned, it's a bit fresher and smoother. It's definitely a peppery scent, and it doesn't seem like many are mentioning that here. It's a pepper that's tamed by sublty sweet Ambroxan. This fragrance is very well blended and smooth. I do not get any metalic note that others have mentioned, I think they might be confusing that with the nose tickling peppers that give a dusty/earthy vibe.. also due from the small amount of vetiver and patchouli which are hiding in the back somewhere. Great stuff.

After my first negative reviewS, I finally bought a bottle. The more I wear it, the more similarities I see with Aventus and Bleu. The first times I wore it, I thought the pepper was harsh. But now, I'm not overwhelmed by pepper anymore, but by a gorgeous citrus. I love the pineapple in Aventus, but I think Sauvage's citrus is more versatile. And I also think that Sauvage is better than Bleu EDP because Bleu is a little too sweet. I'm sure it won't be my last bottle.

I don't understand the rage and dislike towards Sauvage. I can only guess it comes mostly from Dior fans who are trying to take vengeance on Dior By sending a message back for not producing a fragrance that knocks Dior Pour Homme and Fanrenheit fragrances out from their frag collections. But this has nothing to do with the smell of Sauvage per se. The dislike its more about protesting than Sauvage's true smell.

Yes, Sausage is not groundbreaking or unique, but it is a universally good and clean smelling frag that has Dior quality, one that you can wear at the office and for any day time use with confidence. People without background knowledge make comments that I smell clean, fresh, easy going, nice, and inoffensive, and very proper for an office environment, school, and daytime wear, and that my cologne does not smell cheap but the contrary. So mission accomplished because I think that is the positioning Dior was looking for with Sauvage, an everyday fragrance that appeals to the masses in a good way. Be angry at Dior if you will for not giving you the replacement of the Dior Privee line or the Pour Homme line, but smell closer and you will see this is not a dislakable fragrance at all.

I've joined the legion of lovers, the last time I reviewed Sauvage I was very cruel, months later, I've bought it and found a definite fondness for it, there's a complexity, quality and originality that I couldn't get initially. Now I'm hooked, it's the smooth Pepper notes I find addictive. 4/5

This is a new review after 3 months of trying it : the start is very pleasant and gives a real feeling of well-being but the rest of the evolution until the base notes is really too aggressive and synthetic smelling for me. I neither feel elegant nor confident wearing Sauvage. It evolves into some supermarket male shower gel scent that is not what I expect when wearing a cologne today in my mid-forties.

Disappointment. I cannot even end the bottle.

I have to change my review on this fragrance. I used to hate it with a passion and thought it smelled like armpit, but as I kept coming back to the fragrance department at the mall and kept smelling it I'm starting to enjoy it. So I tested it out yesterday and it performed well on my skin with 5 hours of strong projection and 3-4 hours of being a skin scent. The next day I bought a 3.4 oz. bottle.

The bottle is absolutely AMAZING with the slick design and classy look but the part that makes this bottle amazing is the sprayer. The sprayer allows you to control the spritz, and so if you only press the sprayer half way it is enough to last 8 hours. If you press it all the way it is equivalent to three spritz and can be cloying. So don't do more than one spray as this cologne is already strong. Now for the scent.

The scent is cold, metallic, fresh and fruity. I get a blueberry kind of smell that shifts to a watermelon with the metallic scent lurking in the background throughout.It is versatile, so it can be worn throughout all seasons. It is not complex and interesting like some people have said but it doesn't have to be. I have personalities that can make up for that.

Overall, I give this a 9/10. It's classy, dark, mysterious and yet playful. Long lasting scent with good performance. It is versatile in a way that can be worn throughout all seasons and occasions. You only have to spray ONCE. So test it on your skin first. You just might like it.

Just like in my review of Dolce & Gabbana's Intenso, I believe this is a very nice clean soapy scent.

It may not conjure images of exotic far off places or rare ingredients from such places but it makes you feel enveloped by a squeaky clean aroma.

People keep on mentioning citrus, I just don't get it, to me it's an ambery/ambroxan "hazy" smell, maybe with citrus in the background.

This is so nice and comforting and not cheap smelling.

Great when you're in great looking casual clothing.

Been a while since I wrote my last review. Reason being I haven't really smelled anything worth commenting over. I have been following this fragrance since its release. Sniffing it a couple time a month. From November until End of March I got multiple samples from Sephora. I wore this in warmer weather, to church, out about town, to work and even around the house cleaning up. I had been on a buying freeze for at least the last year or so.

However, I tried to ignore it I just kept coming back to it. Generic like a nice blue tie and blue suit. Unoriginal, like a good romantic comedy. Sharp, musky, spicy, soapy (deodorant maybe)? Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. However, it smells downright wonderful and everyone you encounter will most like think the same (well until it reaches Aqua Di Gio or La Male status).

Versatile, mature yet not too serious, universal without being bland, sexier than most but not trying too hard. It did what I never thought a designer could do. It knocked Bleu De out of first place in its category.

Since purchasing I have worn it everyday to really get a feel for it to really make sure I could make this bold statement....this is the best designer released in a long time. I would say ever but not going to do that in fear of being hyperbolic.

I own a bunch of stuff. This is what Aventus is without the price tag. Some will find this too bold others will find it to bland which hits a sweet spot in my collection. My two cents. Great Job Dior

Users really exaggerate the similarities between this and bleu de chanel. It's funny, because people critique BDC as being "generic" and yet can't refrain from making comparisons and copy accusations whenever something with a vaguely similar scent comes to the market. A bit of a testament to BDC's own sense of identity. BDC is a lot more soft than Sauvage, which is more sharp and rough. This has a lot to do with BDC having a smokey incense note while Sauvage has more a musky earthy/green note similar to A&F Fierce. The fresh sharp top-notes of the bergamot and pepper mixed with the dryness of the woody mid-notes also give Sauvage a sort of classy powdery scent not found in BDC. Sauvage has a similar vibe to BDC, but no more than Aqua di Gio profumo, or some Mont Blanc fragrances. Sauvage achieves the same versatility, but with more of a wild edge and a touch of class so that the scent becomes more youthful without becoming juvenile.

First of all: fantastic bottle! Popular take on the beautiful privée bottles with the best sprayer I've tried. Masculine.

The fragrance is masculine, just like the bottle, but it's more like a masculine 14 year old boy. This smells like the shower gel teenagers use after the gym, only with a bit better quality. Not that mutch better quality, tho. It IS synthetic, and it WILL give people headache! This rubbish is why most people I know are sceptical aboute perfumes. It is cheap, commercial bs!

Francois Demachy has given us Dior Homme Intense, Feve Delicieuse, Eau Sauvage Parfum, Oud Ispahan and Mitzah! This time someone must have had a knife to his balls, because this is a disgrace!

Sauvage is like the bastard son of 4 diferent fragrances, and like a son it shares some characteristics of his diferent fathers:

1. The cooling factor of Cool Water
2. The metallic, green vibe, muskiness, and performance of 212
3. The freshness and class of Bleu De Chanel
4. The fruity and masculine tone of Aventus

As you can see Sauvage is all over the place, and tries to do so many things that at the end it comes out as another generic fresh cologne.The weird thing is that even if it has a generic vibe, Sauvage has its own thing going on.

Now let's talk about compliments. Women loove this, every woman who has smelled this one loved it, and sincerely I don't get it. Yes is a nice scent but to me it doesn't do anything spectacular that would make me think it deserves that much attention.

Overall is a nice fresh/musky/citrusy/semi aquatic/green scent that women seem to love.

Dior has done again a Marvelous job at creating a very mystique and unique fragrance.
Not just a crowd pleaser, and also not an extension of other well-known fragrance lines.

Just something totally "we did not expect" fragrance.

Awesome and surprising. I love it.

Don't compare with Bleu de Chanel like many are doing, it's not the same. Not even close.

Test it at store if you don't believe me, test them together ofcourse.

To the rating

Scent 8.2/10

New, very spicy and sharp. Complex and a daring scent. Very noticeable and yes, it will trigger a lot of compliments. Mostly it's not recognized. It's surprisingly new.
Just a new modern scent.
The sharpness notes changes to a more sweet and present Woody trail. Makes it even more excited.

Longevity 8.6/10

Dior is well known for high performing fragrances, this one is no exception.
8+ hours easily.
Great concentration for an eau de toilette.

Projection/sillage 8.1/10

Noticeable because of the sharp top notes, coming closer gives the more rich flavors. Awesome intriguing scent that remains mysterious all the way.

Pricing 8.6/10

Great performance for the great price. It's new, it's being marketed everywhere now. Give it definitely a try. You might like it.
Sleek and modern looking bottle BTW.

Overall Rating 8.4/10

A very generic clean peppery scent. I see some people comparing this to Bleu de Chanel, and assuming these are somewhat similar, I'd say the major difference is that Dior is sharper, has a strong pepper note, is less versatile, is more generic, and is less pleasing to the masses.
I've been wearing this off and on for a week and I can definitely say it's strong. It's very generic and does not turn heads. The only redeeming factor is how they managed to create a scent that is both "clean" and "peppery" at the same time.
Definitely not on the same scale as Dior Homme line.
Not quite on the level of Bleu De Chanel.
Overall opinion: 5/10

I have a 10ml mini of this that I decanted into an atomizer. It smells very nice with one spray. Even with that single spray, it lasts all day and projects nicely. With two or more sprays it quickly becomes cloying and obnoxious with ambroxan overload.

Wearing Sauvage one spray a day would certainly make the bottle last a long time. So, although it isn't discounted yet, in my opinion it is still a good value for someone who is going to choose one fragrance and stick to it until the bottle is done.

On me, this smelled like dryer sheets. A very linear and bland clean smell from top to finish. I do not care for it. A few women that I had smell it did not care for it either. They said it was too plain. It also comes off as being quite chemically. The sort of fragrance that could possibly give you a headache. However, I'm a proponent that one should try fragrances for themselves because what one loves, someone else might hate. To each their own and happy smelling!

Did anyone test it side by side with Aventus? I did that today and these two scents are pretty much comparable, falling within the same category. Sauvage abandons the zesty fruity opening of Aventus to go straight into pepper, lavender, and geranium which I personally like. To my nose Aventus is sharp in the middle while Sauvage is rather rough which I prefer. Aventus is more sour as the birch dominates while Sauvage is more aromatic and amber-like. Both are better be worn in the summer although I find Sauvage to be a bit more forgiving in cooler weathers. It does not speak to a certain age range, and it pretty much works for any occasion. Just be careful not to over apply because this stuff is strong which I respect because I am tired of poor projection and longevity in many recent fragrance releases.

First impression review ---

So when I first sprayed this I didnt know what to expect as Ive heard a lot of good and bad things about this BUT the same was the case with Aventus and Bleu De Chanel so I was very curious !

When I first sprayed this I immediatly thought this smelled like a mix between Scent of Peace for Him and Bleu De Chanel. Even though I wasnt blown away I was excited because I was hoping Dior took what was good from Scent of Peace and made it better.

Unfortunatly this was not the case, because when this dried down it smelled EXACTLY like this lotion I had a while back that had a sporty smell. With that said, its not horrible and there are components of this that I like but to be honest I thought it smelled pretty cheap and for a Dior fragrance it was a disappointment.

But when my girlfriend came home I was hoping that this would be like Aventus in the way that I thought it was only ok at first but then she ended up loving it which changed my opinion about Aventus. HAHA,that was not the case with Dior however.

When she came home she gave me a hug and IMMEDIATELY said this is 1 of those colognes I DONT want you wearing. It smells ok but its too strong and is giving me a headache and it smells like cheap axe body spray.(With only 2 sprays mind you, and this was 2 hours into the fragrance)

Honestly though I do have to agree with her on this scent! Maybe this is my skin chemistry but on my skin it smelled like cheap,sporty lotion and was extremely potent !!!

With that said performance on this is BEAST !!!
It projects like a monster on my skin for 4 hours and lasts 8-12 hours total.

Overall rating 6.5 out of 10 ! Decent scent with beastly performance.

Not really worth the price in my opinion. I STRONGLY prefer Malibu by Playboy at $15 for a 3.4 than this juice.lol

A lot of controversy on this fragrance and after testing it out and thinking about whether to buy it for a few weeks i caved in and bought it! my first impression was honestly Wow i dig this smell and ive gotten many compliments with this one. Yea its a little stronger than most prefer but its a great compliment getter. I wouldnt say this fragrance is amazing but i feel it will be a very popular one in the years to come. I do love that i get 8+ hours when i spray this on. And honestly as long as you like it and it smells good to you that is all that matters. Cant please everyone. Always test it out for yourself because remember everyone's body chemistry is different.

I would advise all men who buy this to spritz only once even if it's in the back of your knee so that the fragrance wafts up or in a pulse point like your neck but that's it. This stuff can wake the dead. It's not a bad scent and I do enjoy smelling it as I walk next to the man that wears it. For me its too strong. There is a lot of pepper here. If it weren't for the ambroxan that dominates the scent the pepper would be doing it. There is aromatic lavender and sweet geranium, and of course patchouli. All these are heavy hitters by the way. No wonder they named this fragrance SAVAGE. It's a wild beast fragrance. Yeah it is sexy but it's not the kind of sexiness that I equate with sex. I prefer to smell softer scents to get close to a guy's skin. This is admirable but from a distance. Nothing unisex about it. Dior in my experience does a far better job of creating women's fragrances than it does for men. The only beautiful and amazing unisex scent Dior ever made was Poison.

"i ve made at least 20 plus ppl smell this stuff( mostly ladies) they rejected it with pleasure"

So over 20 people disliked it by a landslide? Sorry, but I don't buy that one bit. Not because I think this scent is perfect or can't be disliked, but because you're making an obvious exaggeration that insinuates that this scent is somehow objectively bad. That claim deviates from my own positive experiences with this scent, but that isn't the real problem.

"you just created another/this account to defend this stuff"

The problem here is that you make poor excuses and claims to justify your opinion, like trying to illegitimatize my posts by claiming I'm some sort of troll account. Just say you think the scent is awful, that's more commendable than acting like a sore loser who makes excuses to try to pass his opinion as an objective fact the whole world agrees with.

For anyone who wants the attention of girls buy this it's crazy how much they like it you'll get plenty of compliments and a lot of girls leaning in on you just to smell. Even if you tried and don't like I would suggest getting a sample and trying for a week. Lasts very long and great scent

First of all, it's nice to see the Fragrantica community still going strong after being away for almost a year and a half..... Really not sure who's opinion that was: But saying that this frag is like Aventus is a pretty wild assessment....... So, I just got my 100ml bottle delivered and my initial assessment after just a couple of days is Bleu De Chanel all the way..... The only downside for me is that despite its being an amped-up, very modern take on the Original Eau Sauvage....., it is still one of those frags that is so ubiquitous that you will literally walk through your local mall and notice that every few steps you take, you'll be thinking: "hmmmmm, that smells really familiar"!!! This is a step up from Bleu De Chanel tho; but I will say on par with the Bleu de Chanel EDP Version... It plays very well to the younger generation.... I can't see a guy 25 and under not having this in their regular rotation or even as a signature scent...... Stay tuned for a full review.... Right now though………?!?! A solid 7-7.5/10

Strangely (or not) enough I get in the base a musky accord similar to Narciso Rodriguez for Him, but with the latter being a sweaty-animalic whereas the Dior has an acidic edge. As for the rest of the scent, it is really forgettable.

I asked a neighbor to try it out for me when she went to Macy's, and I was able to smell it today on her wrist and on a card, which I'll keep to see if I get more complexity at some point. She said it smelled "fresh" for ten minutes or so but then "went bad," and she really disliked it. It certainly has a marine quality and I can see the ambergris idea here. There also seems to be at least a hint of a Brut type fougere peeking in from the background. I can't imagine being able to wear this, though, because it becomes irritating very quickly, about as quickly as any scent I can remember, and this is just sitting near the card that was sprayed. On the other hand, from a "safe distance," I can see how some might find it pleasant and interesting, though the "novelty" might not last that long. In some ways it's more of a niche idea, being so focused on one type of note, but it's the kind of niche I tend to avoid for that reason. I like this more than BdC, actually, from a conceptual perspective, but neither are wearable to me (though I'd choose BdC over this one because it's more complex and might just bore me rather than irritate me, so long as I didn't spray too much). I can't think of any scent that is all that similar. Legend by MB has a similar texture to it, at least for a while, but the smell itself doesn't seem all that close. If you enjoy it and get compliments, that's great, but to be honest, if you worked in a cubicle next to mine (if I worked at one), and sprayed more than once to the chest, I'd probably have to lodge a complaint if I thought you'd be wearing it every day.

Note that if I want a marine scent I reach for Horizon - to me, Sauvage is like a cross between the marine element in Horizon and the typical mall store musky smell.

This is not a bad fragrance nor a good one. It's just a regular scent. I don't understand the extreme hating comments nor the absolute great ones. Dior Sauvage is another fragrance from the pile... I think it's perfect for young guys, not teenagers, but on their 20's to feel more "mature". If you're looking for a super masculine scent, look into another direction.

To me it's more powdery, peppery, a bit sweet and a hint of aventus lurking in the background. The citrusy opening of which i like and then develops to powdery peppery gives me a bit headache. Sure a lot of people will adore this beauty, just not me.

There's an obvious current connecting the polarizing nature of this scent. And it has to do the psychology of the scent itself. It's a bright, fresh, catchy-as-fuck three chord pop song with an anthemic hook for the ages. A simple elegant fruity-sweet-bright-snappy-fresh major chord.

If I was 22 again. With the whole world ahead of me. To fuck and conquer. With little else on my mind. Except being the most palatable to the utmost many. Then this scent would be perfect.

But I ain't. And it ain't.

I'm 40 plus. With a wreck of a life. I can't wear the same scent that makes me smell like I imagine Justin Beiber smells. Nothing against that little handsome snatch slayer. In fact, mad respect. The same for this scent. I gets it. It's a delicious smelling crowd pleaser. And an allstar at that.

I have no hate for this scent. But regarding the psychology of scents. They have to match the wearer. There is a phenomenon in psychological research that has described the enhancing effect of the wearer of professional garb on the actual performance of the subjects.

I remain convinced that the same thing happens with scents....IF....IF...they actually amplify the vibe of the wearer. So, beyond the snobbery of nerd clubs like fragrantica this scent is a popular crowd pleaser that is unpopular with noses that like being challenged.

Whereas with me. i just can't communicate to the world what this scent has to offer. Which is mass appeal pop romance. I need something that says... don't fuck with me...if you want a Justin Beiber.

So I like this scent. But I sure as shit can't wear it. So....yeah. Highly enjoyable. For Beiber or his 40 something uncle who works in advertising. But not me.

Tried it twice now, first one on a tester strip, it was pleasant but not something that I felt I really needed at the time and bought some other fragrances.

Second time I tested it on my skin and for some reason it seems to react really bad to my skin and creates a unpleasant, harsh and weird smell. I don't know if this is where some of the hate comes from, but most of it seems to be that it's generic, which I cannot say it is on my skin, it's very unique and I would not expect anyone to smell like what it smells on me.

Well I'm going to scrap my plans to get one, I'm glad I tried it on my skin also, as it reacted so bad to it, so please test on your skin, it might rise up and be fantastic on you where it was generic on the test strip, or like me go the other way.

To me, Sauvage was immediately likeable. The opening is harsh and burning, but that soon settles to a brutish masculine active scent.

Projection and longevity are immense, and that's one of the reasons it gets so many compliments.

I don't find this elegant at all, but bold, loud, masculine and youthful all in a modern way. I can imagine sporty people or college guys wearing this, because it screams

"I'm here! I'm the Alpha! Let's go!"

- That's Sauvage.

I've held off a review from this one since it's initial release. I wanted to watch the hate come around like i assumed it would. Slowly but surely. It has.

Whats not to like?

Let's be honest. It's not ground breaking. Ok, true.

But it is a nice sophisticated manly scent in a simplistic way.. It smells like a man fresh out a shower who shaved and put on deodorant. It dries down to that same clean smell but has a faint sweet skin smell to it. Something reminiscent of the moment after giving someone a hug that smelled freshly showered.

It does get compliments. I rarely receive them but with this i have gotten a few.

I don't want to sound redundant and say the same thing that everyone else has said.

As for the notes.. The commercial has the true notes breakdown. (Balade sauvage by francois demachy)

Way more than the original three listed.


This is a great simple elegant mans fragrance. No frills nothing extra than a pleasant long lasting mens fragrance.


My new signature scent.

You know I might get some hate for this, but for all the hype Fahrenheit get's in these fragrance communities, it really is a huge hit or miss with people in real life. I do like Fahrenheit (but much prefer the Aqua flanker). However, it's gasoline and petroleum notes give Fahrenheit an abrasive scent that not everyone can appreciate among the general public. What I'm getting at is that Fahrenheit isn't a crowd pleaser out side of these fragrance communities.

Sauvage's scent does follow some common tropes in male perfumery, but it twists those tropes to form something unique in it's own right and done well. So while Sauvage does contain some familiar notes, it's in no way generic. Most calling it generic can't even compare it to other colognes, hence why the "this fragrance reminds me of" option is essentially empty. This is because while Sauvage's scent is mostly linear, it's also more abstract than a lot of other colognes. It's able to be a crowd pleaser, more so than Fahrenheit, and still maintain an abstract nature. That's something worth giving Sauvage some merit over.

Also, a common complaint is that there's nothing "sauvage" about this scent. Fair enough, but is there anything "sauvage" about the original Eau Sauvage either? It's primarily a sophisticated, airy, and citrus scent, nothing wild or dark about it. At least the 2015 Sauvage has a darker and more wild nature to it's scent and bottle design compared to the original. So those who try to discredit this cologne though it's name look like hypocrites doing so.

I'm smelling this quite a lot recently and I've got to say it's great! A lot more depth and character than its closest rival Bleu which to my nose smells boring. Longevity is good, will last 8-10 hours and projection is also good. You wont really smell it on yourself but it has great sillage and will definitely leave a trail. Sprayer on the 100ml is great, 60ml not so great. Just a shame it's so common now.

Funny how a lot of the reviews mentioned the supposed "generic" nature of the scent...
Yet there are not a lot of "this fragrance reminds me of" options...
I have not smelled this before, hence my reading of the "supposed" reviews...
If it is indeed so generic, does someone have the balls to say what it "supposedly" smells like?

Some notes will obviously be shared with other fragrances, as they can obviously not make a scent that smells like cat paws in the opening and dries down to something resembling dusty printer paper enveloped in a sour milk accord...

So, what other fragrances does it smell like? All those who say it is generic...?
Generic means: common, broad, non-specific, having no particular distinctive quality...

Really?
Anyone?

Awesome Cologne. My girlfriends dad got it first and used to get many compliments from girls that would smell him in front of his wife. Says a lot if girls are complimenting you in such a manner in front of your wife. Very synthetic but girls love it trust me. I got it for myself and whenever I'm near or a girl or helping them with some problems ( in school) they always comment how good I smell when I wear this. Definitely an essential in my collection. Always wear this bad boy when I wear outfits that give an edgy vibe.

Quick thing to note is my skin is very resistant to cologne so this is one of the few I had to buy as it last a good 4-6 hours. I'm also a 23 year old student if that helps any of you.

Opening:
The initial spray can sometimes smell like rubbing alcohol to me, or vodka. The citrus is obvious. There is a fleeting sugary cotton candy vibe that has a hint of rum, that I don't hear anyone mentioning. (Rum Diaries anyone?)

Dry down:
I do catch a lot of the notes mentioned here: lavender, oak moss, and vetiver. I also smell things that nobody else is smelling like: rosewood, leather, and burning rubber. The Ambroxan is very natural smelling even though it is synthetic. (Another Amber Heard reference?)

Skin:
I detect burnt orange peel occasionally, woody cedar Sometimes rosewood, cork, grape or wine comes to mind. There is definitely lavender here, and the other floral notes are hard to identify but they appear to be there.

Projection:
Misleading... it does project and lasts quite a long time, it just causes olfactory fatigue almost immediately for me, so I can't smell it projecting like the wife can. The sprayer is very good on the 100ml bottle. I have over-sprayed it as much as 9 times not knowing how strong it was, and I have 20+ years of fragrance experience. So it sneaks up on you and be very careful with it.

One air spray walk into it, one on each wrist and rub on the sides of the neck will do. Yes that’s a total of 3 sprays, and that works, you won’t barely smell it though. It lasts longer on clothes than on skin, so an air spray walking into it with clothes on will help with longevity.

Hype:
I ignored the hype and went with my nose and got a couple testers. I then got it for Christmas and have lived with it for a while. This fragrance is very well balanced and that is why everyone thinks it smells like everything else, It’s actually a challenging scent to define and I think that was intended.

Compliments:
Not many but they come from the important ones. It does seem to have a weird effect on people at first they either immediately hate it or love it, but they always seem to wander back and try to smell you again either way.

Summary:
In short, Sauvage is a well-balanced-dangerous-chameleon-ninja panther. This is a scent that evolves and fools the senses immediately, yet at times can completely disappear only to reappear again in beast mode. Not the best scent for a suit or office unless you thrive for danger of losing your job. This is a nice dinner date scent, also interesting for shopping and clubbing, or if you’re feeling really wild, going through a romp through the jungle. Sauvage is not safe for anything but a wild fragrance adventure.

I like the opening of the scent. It is very fresh and clean smelling. This is a very safe scent. It begins to smell synthetic as it dries down. Still, it is not the worse scent in the mainstream market. If I was looking for a mainstream clubbing scent and had a choice between this, Versace Eros, and Paco Rabanne Invictus, I would pick Sauvage.
On me the sillage was strong and it lasted well into the next day. I don't love this scent but I do like it. If I received a free bottle, I would add it to my rotation but I will probably not spend money on this. This is nowhere as good as Eau Sauvage or Eau Sauvage Parfum, but it is younger smelling than those two scents.

Scent by committee.

It's an uninspired cologne that has the same scent as myriad other cheap colognes. I'm not a fan of Demachy, but he has done a few winners (e.g., Patchouli Imperial). I can't believe he would attach his name to this piece of marketing fluff.

This one, however, smells as if it were designed by committee to sell as many bottles to as many different types of people as possible. I would not be surprised if they came up with the marketing campaign before they even began the fragrance.

Scent development at its most cynical.

In full disclosure I have a penchant for peppery fragrances. Having Bleu de Chanel and Sauvage in my collection, I find Sauvage smells like a peppery version of Bleu. Which again since I enjoy peppery is right down my alley. I go to Bleu de Chanel when I'm with my wife and I go to Sauvage when I'm by myself. If you like pepper layered on top of flowers you will love this one. If you don't then absolutely pass.

Sauvage is absolutely not that bad and does not deserve the way its been received, definitely not near as great as Dior's other releases but the thing really seems weird to me is its more or less the same fragrance as Bleu De Chanel in terms of structure, overall impact and target market( better than BDC to me), may be its Dior's repo! People were not expecting it from Francois Demachy (if he was allowed to do what he wanted to)

A very Generic composition sometimes I feel a replica of Aventus( watered down Pineapple note) and Blue de Channel mixed with some popular detergent.

Dior Sauvage is a jack-of-all-trades, but master of none.

There are 3 big takeaways from my wearing of this:

#1: It opens as a mix between Curve for men and Montblanc Legend. This is the best thing it has going for it.

#2: It lasts an exceptionally long time on my skin. It lasted through a shower and a nights sleep, and that was on my wrist. It's easily over 12+ hours now, although it's very close to the skin.

#3: This extremely long drydown phase definitely reminds me of Creed Aventus. Except it's a bitter, noxious version of it.

So in the end, I enjoy the opening and first hour. After that I can't stand the smell of the stuff.

To sum things up, this is in no way a memorable scent. It's not something unique or even very interesting. Is it a bad perfume? Not really. Is it good for all occasions? I guess. But in my opinion, there are much better options for your signature, every-day scent.

The Dior Johnny Depp commercial NAILS the essence of this perfume. It's extremely confused and doesn't know where it's going.

Hmmm. I got to sample sauvage before I read the review on fragrantica. Its a diir for sure with that powdery touch. I love the sharp begamot opening which is like aventus. A lovely subtle sweet drydown with the warm amber a shift from a french perfume to a semi oriental. It's a dior. Very common. Very generic. This will become very popular. Girls will love this soapy bubblegum.

So, im just back from the department store where I received a sample of this fragrance. I read a great deal of negativity here and on Base notes about this fragrance and I usually am in agreement with the majority about fragrances whether reported good or bad. This time im in disagreement. Yea upon first spray it didnt blow me away but the magic came about 30 mins later when boooom an unexpected powdery, soft and animalistic scent blessed my olfactory senses. Its amazing and I will purchase a 100ml bottle later today. I really did not expect much with the poor reviews but I guess this is a fragrance that works with my skin and ticks all the right boxes from an accord point of view. I guess the lesson learned today is always judge for your self and not what the majority like or dislike,that is if you dont already ☺

The very controversial Dior Sauvage. In this case I must say I'm a part of the "haters". If I'd pick my most disliked perfumes it'd probably be #1. And I enjoy some easy, generic fragrances so it's not for that reason, which many ones use to bash it. But to my nose it smells like a fake, synthetic Christmas tree. The little hushed green ones some people hang to their rear-view mirror in their car.

To give a more technical description now: Sauvage is mostly built around an abrasive, chemical bergamot and an aromatic, semi-fresh amber-y note. Then you add some light pepper and a cleaner musk on top of it. To compare Sauvage, the closest I can think of is a mix of some parts of Mont Blanc Legend and another Dior fragrance: Dior Homme Eau. Sauvage is stronger, heavier than both though. Finally if you enjoy sharp fragrances, like L'Eau Dissey from Issey Miyake for example (They don't smell the same at all), you have more chances of liking this one as well.

Many ask about the common comparison to Bleu de Chanel. They have NO similarity to me in their smell. Most who compare them are talking about both being versatile, every season/occasion safe fragrances. It's in their style, while being from higher priced popular designer houses, that they are similar and not in their scent. I personally much prefer Bleu EDT (Without loving it either). But in its defense I'll say that if you do enjoy it, Sauvage can indeed be that "swiss-knife" fragrance and it's a big crowd pleaser. So especially if you value those points give it a try and make your own opinion, no matter how much it divides people online.

I really don't understand why there are so many haters... This is a very good fragrance! The opening has some similarities with Aventus, I mean the feeling that I get is like the feeling that i've while wearing Aventus. Of course it's a complete different scent , but I love the opening. I love also its development. It's sexy and addictive. I agree that this is not a masterpiece but who cares , it's absolutely good and attention grabbing. Perfect for business and perfect for a Friday night too! This is not a niche scent and this is not a unique smell either but... Who cares?this is not the point. My advice is to get a sample and try a full wear of it. It's a lovely fragrance. Good silage, good longevity, good scent, compliments galore...! Very nice ;).

Marketing and fragrance are practically two words that sit together comfortably. No one seems to notice either. Yet, along comes a product such as Sauvage, controversial with its recycled name (Eau Sauvage anyone?), but marketed by none other than Capt'n Jack Sparrow and the bottles sell like hot cakes.
Sauvage has been very smartly put together by François Demachy to represent the sun (fresh bergamot opening), earth (patchouli and lavender dry-down) and "blue open spaces" (somehow represented by black pepper and ambroxan). The fresh yet peppery mix of the opening certainly meets Demachy's objective of the citrus fresh opening. Perfect for a scorching hot day. After a while, the scent gradually progresses - this is a slow progression for an Eau de Toilette. It takes quite a while to morph into the pepper/amber base. The freshness is all but gone but a fern-like sweetness remains, leaving a trail resembling a slightly sweetened familiarity of masculinity. Lavender is definitely there too in vast quantities dare I say.

The opening is indeed quite a contrast to the dry down, yet the pepper works really well in the transition process. It's hard to pinpoint the note at times but it is well put together and works well with the lavender. As for the dry down, if you can be bothered to wait for it, it is not designed to be sniffed up close. This one is best experienced from a distance.

All in all, definitely a 'try before you buy' scent. Some may find the opening a bit harsh or synthetic, others may not see the dry down as anything special. To me, this is a definite Caron Pour un Homme variation with a slightly sweeter base and much more lavender!

I don't think Demachy was trying to create something that pushed boundaries when he had Sauvage's concept in mind. I think he was aiming for creating a modern smelling cologne that was versatile enough for any occasion, season and temperature. Of course you can't make something very versatile without it also being "safe" to some extent. However, Sauvage still manages to retain it's own sense of character and identity that stands out with a theme of being "raw and noble". I don't need every single cologne I wear to be extremely unique and groundbreaking, I'm not trying to accommodate for a lack of personality. If I like how it smells, and I feel it reflects who I am well, then it's worth a buy in my book.

What obsession has some people by the reactions of others. Is incredible.
There are whole reviews in which not even the smell is described and what is even more incredible, no one's opinion is given, and everything is based on what others have said. Anyway...

In this particular case, I am sure that if you don't put the word "Dior" in the box and the bottle, most of which they praise this perfume, treat him as one of the bunch. Did also happen otherwise?, What some criticize it for being one of Dior ?. Surely yes.

In my opinion, well ... A crowd-pleaser, pretty shoddy in terms of quality, totally artificial and with a scent that is not espcially nice.

See, if you're used to smell, are things like "Versacce pour Homme", "YSL L'Homme", "CK Ethernity" and "Hugo Boss", etc .. (I think you understand me), ok, this can be very good ... or not...

If you're used to smell, are things like "Nautica Blue", "Joop Nightflight", etc .. ok, this can also be good or bad. It's a bit the same... ;)

With regard to the fragrance, it also seems very exaggerated some comments on performance, but here is the same as before. If you are used to YSL L'Homme, Versacce, etc .., this may seem very good.

Longevity is decent, but the sillage is very moderate, after the first 30 minutes. Well, there are people who write reviews and analyzes fragrances (as Jeremy), after the first 2 minutes of smell. In this case, yes, this have a good sillage...

Ok... Even with all the hate, I finally broke down and got me a bottle. Im tickled with this one even though I see why it may be hated. It's kinda in your face the first few hours or for me it is and it screams here i am let me do my job. That it will do and then some. I've seen some compare it to bleu. I kinda get that in a way, a more amped up more peppery clean kinda zesty to me. It comes across to me as just a real clean fresh scent basically. I think the hate is from Dior is known for knocking your socks off with unique amazing scents that really just make you think ... Dam how did they come up with this?!? Well unfortunately this is nothing like that. Some are just better than others and can't be touched no matter what plain and simple. People are let down when it seems a house takes a step back in there eyes. It's all about sales and marketing these days and its hard for some to realize that. We know what Dior is capable of and we're all looking for something better than what's been before... More potent, better smelling, fills a room before you walk in, 40bucks a bottle etc... Well unfortunately its the game they play with us these days.

Today was my first day wearing this, two shots to the chest one to the back of the neck. Drove 30 mins to work... Walked in and was hanging my coat up and a lady i work with was standing im gonna say 15ft away atleast said Omg! What do you have on today??? I looked at her like... Oh hell the hates already started... She's known for criticizing me sometimes on what i wear... I kinda laughed and said you mean you smell that??? She said ohhhh yeah i just caught a wiff of it... It smells dam good! She said That may be my favorite so far! I was like damm she's had her nose on some top notch shit over the last few years and this is her favorite on just a wiff!??? I told her what it was because she said her husband was getting some if he liked it or not, Hahahaha. Then i proceeded up front .. 2mins later im speaking with another coworker.. She's in the middle of telling me something that happened before i got there and she stopped in the middle of it and Her words was.. Don't have a clue what your wearing but im glad im working the same shift as you today, you smell fantastic! Then she finished her story. 2 compliments in less than 3mins and no im not the boss or in payroll. Hahaha. All joking aside this gets attention from people, smiles and sniffs all day. I applied at 1030am and i could still smell it at midnight.

Guys put all the hate aside for a min and give this one a shot. I guarantee when you're showered with compliments from the ladies you'll be glad you purchased this. I've worn Creeds, Amouages, and Tom Fords that don't get the attention like this did today no joke. Well worth the 70bucks. Job well done Francois

Unfortunately, I think the reviews here are almost all exaggerated. It smells somewhat synthetic (I think intentionally), but it still smells mostly natural. Few people will dislike this scent, but most people who have smelled many things will find this somewhat generic, though somewhat pleasant and extremely versatile. There are some similarities to Bleu and, less so, to Aventus, but the similarities are short-lived and somewhat distant. The silage is enough that 2-3 spray is noticeable, but not extreme. The longevity is good, I get around 10 hours, not extremely short or extremely long. Pricewise, it's actually a little cheaper than Dior Homme, when the size of the bottle is factored in.

One thing that hasn't been brought up (or at least that I've seen), is the sprayers: they're very easy to press down, and immediately give off an extremely fine mist. I definitely give props to Dior for paying attention to the details by not getting a run-of-the-mill sprayer, even on a scent that isn't a game changer.

Dior Sauvage starts very similiar to Creed Aventus, not the perfume notes but the hidden ambroxan. Seems that both are using similar chemicals. But then Sauvage gets very sharp citrusy while Creed develops with a pineapple smell.
So my coclusion is:
Creed Aventus for slightly sweet, fresh smell.
Dior Sauvage for all fans of Aventus who are looking for a cheaper alternative.

I smelled this On my skin just about 2 weeks ago... It's Bloody Awesome! I knew, JUST KNEW All this Hatred towards the fragrance was unfounded and Snarky and just pure old Arrogance and Snobbery! This is in NO WAY like Bleu De Chanel, Bleu is Gingery, in the utmost, and Fresh, Sleek, Sparkling... Sauvage is Deep, Resonant and Earthy with a Shimmering Metallic/Woody line to it. it's yes, Quite Synthetic Smelling, That I will TOTALLY Agree to, but that isn't a bad thing here, Somehow, Ambroxan always hits me like a Ice Pick to the Temple and it does here too, but it mellows as the frgrance develops and dries, and the Syntheticness also wears away to leave a Sexy, Intimate Skin scent in it's wake where the Ambroxan takes on an Oud like Feeling to my nose. This is a Very Well done and Characteristic fragrance. It's not like everything else out there and It may have been made to appeal to the masses, and unlike most Stuck-Up Snobby Perfumnista's, it probably does just that, but that in no way disqualifies it as being a Great Scent... Which, IT IS!

I love the perfumes of Dior. They are refined, typical French, classy, not offensive. They are original and recognizable. But I don't think this project is very original.This is a try to create a commercial fragrance in a style that I don,t find to be very Dior, at the same time to be Dior. The bottle is beautiful. The freshness is modern but quite synthetic. At this stage is very similar to Bleu de Chanel, but the latter smells more natural and cosy. The dry down is beautiful with this sexy amber note- somehow borrowed from Oud Ispahan.But generally this is a try to have everything in one.

Just had a chance to wear this fragrance for a few days and I have to say it is a clean and refreshing take on Amber. Calabria bergamot taking the top note of freshness and Amber as the base being spiced up with the Sichuan Pepper... Simple yet pleasing!

I'm not sure why people don't like this fragrance. I understand that it is a Designer Scent to please the masses... Not complex... But one might forget that this is made from three main notes. The simplicity works for this fragrance.

Is it ground breaking? NO... Is it what I expected from DIOR? NO... I do wish the AMBER was a little more heavier with more depth. For what it is... a fresh scent maybe for the warmer months this fragrance might be one to have. I think a EDP might be what people were expecting bringing more depth to what is expected form Dior... But for a EDT I think it does the job!

I would disagree this is similar to BdC besides they are both fresh scents. They go to two different directions.

BdC EDT is metallic, citrusy, projection of a strong man
Dior Savage is clean, soapy, a bright man in my opinion

Overall, this is a good scent, the freshy that I don't find in other fragrances, soapy all day long. Compose yourself with this fragrance will give you a huge amount of complements. Girls just want to stay nearby you because you look so bright, you smell so clean. Don't over spray, it might give people around a synthetic soapy smell.

I was hoping for something better. Something has gone awry here. This is should be a good perfume but it isn't. I don't care that it flew off the shelves this Christmas - you can fool some of the people all the time, after all! Something about the balance is wrong and the effect is twofold, First of all, it smells better with distance and that's no good at all! If I'm wearing a perfume I want it to smell best close up, not downwind! It gets more ordinary and non-descript the closer you get. I cannot abide non-descript perfumes because they are committing the worse sin of all - they lack courage, creativity, imagination, distinction and ambition.

This is perfume for people who don't like perfume. It's cologne for the couldn't-care-less. I think it is a masterpiece of marketing! It will continue to fly off the shelves and find it's way into the wardrobes of men who have one cologne bought for them by their girlfriend who likes Johnny Depp. I see it being very popular with the teenagers and students - not a dig at their age but just the fact that most of them won't have had their fragrance noses developed yet. If this didn't have the name 'Dior' on the bottle and Johnny Depp marketing it (how big was the truckload of money they dumped outside your house to get you to flog this, Johnny?) it would vanish.

The opening is non-descript citrus of a 'chemical' kind (the whole universe is made of chemicals but you know what I mean) instead of a natural one (like you find in a Guerlain). The sandalwood that follows doesn't feel like a proper sandalwood. The pepper feels like it was left out in the sun for weeks before being put in the pot. It's an Asda own brand when Dior should be a Harrods exclusive.

It's not as good as the classic Eau Sauvage and there are better light/fresher perfumes out there such as Chanel's Platinum Egoiste (if you like carnation in citrus), Hermes's Eau D'Orange Verte (if you like an orange note), and Guerlain's Eau De Fleurs De Cedrat (if you like a citron note), or The Calabrian Bergamottes Blu Med from Acqua di Parma (if you like Bergamottes) to name but a few, depending which notes you prefer.

Sauvage is a misnomer. It should have been called "toothless" instead.

I'd like to be bothered to write about the smell and the sillage but if Dior can't be arsed be to put the effort in, I'm damned if I'm going to. It seems the appropriate response.

Thank God there are still many options for those with good taste!

The first time I smelled it, it was on a magazine tester strip. I immediately thought that it was a very "macho" type scent and therefore wasn't for me. A few weeks later, I was in at Sephora testing some other fragrances, one being Bleu de Chanel EDP (which I was planning on buying). I decided to give Sauvage a proper test and it surprised me.

To me, most scents smell very similar on my skin as they do on tester strips. This was not the case. On paper, it is somewhat generic and is mainly just the three listed notes. On my skin, however, it really opened up. There were many "déja vu" moments at different points, but I think it was more the combination of a few notes than the scent overall. It made me think of winter air in a city. Sharp, clean, a little something synthetic, and some warmth coming from a building (I also get occasion whiffs of smoke coming from a fireplace).

One of the main parts that got me intrigued was the fact that this is intended to be synthetic. If you look up "Balade Sauvage," it clearly lists many of the molecules used, not just the notes that they are intended to resemble. There is a strange effect that these have, its familiar but also new. Definitely worth a test, but if you smell it from a distance the intricacies are not as apparent.

I think this fragrance is ideologically very different from the Homme line–it went for classiness and beauty. This is not really something to wear with a tuxedo, but it is very focused and refined. I wonder if there is significance with this fragrance heading in a new direction right as Raf Simmons decides not be at the helm of Dior (although I'm guessing that there isn't that much connection between the couture and beauty sides of Dior.

This is one of those fragrances that smell better from a distance than up close, and maybe that's why many people dislike it so?

A woman at work smelled my neck directly where I applied it and she didn't like it. When she walked beside me down the hall she thought it smelled really good. She thought it smelled sexy.

So keep that in mind if you test this, people around you will notice a different (much better smell) than the one you're getting by sniffing your wrist.

Longevity is 12+ hours with moderate projection throughout.

It's a nice fragrance.

This is a good fragrance. Nothing spetacular but still a good one. It's safe, so it's one of those you'd wear to impress somebody out of the fragrance community. It has excellent longevity and sillage. The scent to my nose is a blend of amber and citrus, a combination that may smell a bit synthetic (not in a bad way).

In my opinion most of the negative opinions about this one seem to be unfair. People say it's generic (Bleu de Chanel too, and everybody loves it), people say it's air freshener-like (Versace Pour Homme too, and everybody loves it), people say it's deodorant-like (Egoïste Platinum too, and everybody loves it), so I really don't understand most of these comments.

Also, we must admit this: there are people who don't consider a niche perfume smelling like cat urine a masterpiece. I believe that wearing a fragrance has a lot to do with communication. François Demachy himself once said: "A perfume only exists on somebody's skin. It needs people" and I think this phylosophy fits perfectly in Sauvage's concept. It's one of those easy and safe fragrances that you just want to smell good for the general public.

I do like most male fragrances from Maison Dior and was intrigued by the way Sauvage has been on a love-hate relationship with the general public ... So when i saw a 100ml bottle at a very reasonable price I went blind, yes, yet again. So,

So, I don't see Sauvage as a mature scent, quite the opposite. Also, I don't really think there meant to be any connection with Eau Sauvage whatsoever. It's fresh, aromatic, clean, acquatic-ish, modern and metalic, I even think of Platinum Egoiste when I smell Sauvage. I like it, and see nothing wrong with Sauvage. Generic? OUD scents are getting very generic, meaning every major producer has something to offer, everybody has at least one bottle, etc... which is not a bad thing per se. From time to time everybody is doing the same thing as the rest of us, anyway. So, who's to blame?

It took me quite some time but I finally remember what it does smell like to me, a more versatil and tone down version of jaguar Vision, that once was said to be close to Aventus. And somebody bellow said that Sauvage was the new Aventus. Full circle? back to the starting point? There is a version of everything for everyone for every budget. I think that's not a bad thing.

Synthetic, metallic and musky is what i get, sort of reminds me of a toned down azzaro chrome with the metallic vibe but for some reason very pleasant and one of the best performers that i own. i can get 8 hrs off this stuff which is unheard of on my very dry skin. Sillage is also crazy people can smell me 5 or 6 feet away with out being intrusive or offending so for those two reasons i love it.

A very nice scent wrapped in a handsome bottle containing an excellent performing fragrance. I found Sauvage to be a solid scent when I tested it on paper...a hint of that old-school Eau Sauvage vibe enveloped in a modern, updated, attractive aura. This fragrance also lasted a solid 7-hours on my skin (better than I had anticipated) but, alas, projection was heavy the first 30-minutes and moderate thereafter.

When Sauvage first hit-the-streets, my initial impression was that it was a decent designer fragrance--very pleasant, and safe, and with people pleasing tones--but nothing to go crazy over; much like how most fragrance hobbyists and aficionados perceive Bleu de Chanel. I found it to be a nice scent and didn't appreciate the ignorant haters blindly disliking it without ever smelling it. Regardless, it was a pleasant fragrance but nothing I wanted to own since I have a lot of nice fragrances.

I retained a dozen or so samples that I wore over the following two months. Surprisingly, Sauvage turned-out to be a real hit with the ladies. In fact, several ladies (as in dozens) told me that it smells heavenly on my omnipotent skin. So, Sauvage is a hit with the ladies and I haven't found one female who doesn't like or love this scent.

Although I didn't plan to own a bottle, I fell in love with it and picked-up a bottle back in November. Sauvage probably would have been better received by the fragrance community if only the folks at Dior had given it a better name. Sauvage? What were they thinking? In the end, it will go on to be a best-seller and, perhaps, overtake Bleu de Chanel in popularity. We shall see.

Difficult one... The top notes are great, but it ends there... The mid and dry down remind me of the smell of the armpit of my shirt after a stressful day, the faded deodorant smell.. And because the performance is so strong it gets really annoying and headache inducing. Because the top notes are so great I m still undecided whether I like this one or not. Also one other major downside: if you walk in the city you smell it everywhere, mostly on a more mature person

a disappoinment from Dior
looks like a lab person use incorrect amount of Iso E super and calls it Sauvage. It is extremely unlikeable. Encre Noire is a better frag using Iso E, it turns Iso E into evoking a feeling of a walk in a wooden forest thus minimal the unlikable effect of Iso E, while Sauvage smells so chemical and cheap. I spray one spray and now I am having a headache. Don't make the same mistake as I did.

Most of the hate Dior Sauvage gets from these online fragrance communities usually stems from the fact that it's scent deviates from what most of these people expect from Dior, some may even argue that the scent is "accessible". Well, I don't view these as credible reasons to discredit Sauvage and it's merits. Not Every Dior cologne is going to be a bold innovative icon, so quit the pretentious snobbery.

Anyway, I received this as a gift from a partner who loved the scent of this cologne, and I like it just as much. Sauvage's first note is a cold and crisp scent coupled with hints of citrus. Following after is a very musky scent, that can be described to something similar to the smell of woodsy rain, and is accompanied with metallic hints. Finally, a mixture of different fruits are blended to leave a sweet scent at the end that balances it all out. The end result is a scent that is refreshing, modern, masculine, and sexy. This is the scent of a clean confident man. I have received multiple compliments from women about my cologne while wearing Sauvage. The scent is accessible in that you can wear it in pretty much any season, winter or summer, and is suitable for multiple occasions. For a casual day in jeans and a shirt? Sure, Sauvage works with that. For a night out in the town? Go for it, Sauvage works there too. Yes, Sauvage works in an office environment as well.

More suitable for the younger male demographic, but in no way "immature" or "poppy". Sauvage is for the guy who doesn't want to spend money on multiple colognes for multiple occasions. It's scent is safe and accessible enough for almost anything but still able to retain it's own sense of character. Sauvage has been my "safe go to for anything" cologne since I received it and has become one of my favorites amongst my collection.

Good scent, long lasting, and moderate sillage.

I received it as a christmas gift, and was sooo disappointed, right after the first smell. Cologne-y, old, yuck. I gave it to my boyfriend and I LOVE how it smells on him - apparently I get only the deeper notes, without the horrible coologny opening. And the rest of the projection is very nice, strong and decadent. However, due to this fucked-up beginning I am not able to wear it and probably never will. I also don`t really see the resemblance to Chanel Bleu because that one I loved from the beginning and I come back to it from time to time.

I purchased this for my husband who is in his sixties, purely on the smell. I like my man to smell like a man, and this fits that profile.

All the SA had to say is "Had I seen the TV ad featuring Johnny Depp?" As this would make me instantly swoon and buy it.

Actually we don't have TV and I think it would have put me off the cologne entirely as it is the perfume, not the ad or celebrity that it features, that makes it attractive. I love my husband and have no intention of making him an erotic fantasy of someone else. (May be I am in the minority here!!)

As to the perfume, strong, sensual, and masculine are words it invokes.

Wonderful stuff in a world where perfume is often generic. Has a feel of the eighties, powerful, out there, and not afraid to make its presence known. The bottle is beautiful too.

Thank you Dior for a wonderful scent, but you can keep Johnny.

3rd review, now the utter truth.

This scent is wonderful! dirty yet fruity! metallic yet sweet! Similar to Bleu de chanel, but some space apart, this has it's own identity.

A cheeky, fun man wears this, yet slightly savage in personality, a modern man.

Given Diors line of flankers, I would assume this scent to receive an EDP version and some sort of flanker, an EDP version of this would be divine!

I am upset at my former self, who was caught up in the bad feedback talked about here, which led me to think I disliked this scent, how wrong I was!

Love it

This is one of best new fragrances I've smelled this year. I am going to be buying it though it's for men. In my opinion it could also be a unisex fragrance. Beautiful fragrance

I have to say, half of these comments absolutely baffle me. This scent is lovely, not to mention the longevity, I spray twice and it lasts all day long.
I've had Eau Sauvage before, which for a young guy can not compete with Sauvage. Eau Sauvage is a classic and has a really unique scent but it reeks of old man, while Sauvage really does the name "sauvage", meaning wild, justice. I have gotten compliments by people sitting two chairs away or just walking by, so projection is pretty good too.
If you're on the brink of buying this edT, at least give it a chance for a couple of days by ordering a sample. The hate this thing gets here was completely uncalled for.

Right on Josh839!

By the way, for anyone who wants to discover all the notes of Sauvage, search Youtube for: "Balade Sauvage".

The video is made by Dior and narrated by who i suspect is the voice of Francois Demachy, explaining the making of Sauvage. Great video.

I purchased this because of all the hype, and the fact that I am a fan of the Dior fragrances. Personally, I like the smell because it is the same as my all time favorite scent which is Fuel For Life Homme by Diesel. This cologne has no longevity at all. It lasted maybe no more than an hour on me if even that. Had I knew it was going to smell like Fuel For Life I wouldn't have purchased it to begin with since I don't need two scents that smell exactly the same, also if I knew it wouldn't last on me at all. Either than that, I do think it's a pretty nice cologne just needs to be fixed to last longer and smell stronger.

Keep an open mind with this. Will it appeal to fragheads that have smelled everything from Perry Ellis to Roja Dove? Probably not. Is it a good smelling fragrance that the average customer will like? Of course! I have a few samples and every time I have worn it I have gotten compliments. Everything does not need to be complex and groundbreaking to be a success. Chanel and Armani have proved that in the past and now Dior has it's chance.

If name Dior wasn't specified anywhere on the bottle, i would say that this is not a Dior, for sure.
I don't know why is such hate for this perfume and why people are not liking this one. I do like it very much, had the chance to test this and i really like the base notes and the smell after like 1-2 hours.

On my skin:
- Longevity - 6 H
- sillage - An arm length
- Smell: All around perfume i would say.

I do like this perfume and i am planning to buy this alonside with Chanel Bleu.
I bought an CH Men Prive but i am disappointed because of the longevity. This one is way better.

Blind buy as I have some versions of the magnificent Dior Homme, I'm very open-minded, but I did not expect the name of Dior on this one. If I would have smelled it blindly, I would have put it more in the direction of a Montblanc.

I recently got this fragrance. It starts off resembling Creed Aventus and Bleu de Chanel, then develops into a pleasant peppery fragrance. The best descriptions of the dry down is fresh, metallic, peppery. I don't find it very generic, but it does resemble a cologny feel. Although this may be true, it is done extremely well. The performance is seriously beastly. Easily lasts over 12 hours and projects like crazy. People told me they could smell me in the other room. I only used 3 sprays that day. Now I use 2. While this is a versatile fragrance, I don't wear it to work since I work in a hospital.

Try this out yourself, and wait for the drydown. It's is masculine, pleasing and long-lasting. There is no possible way that someone dislikes this fragrance, unless you over-spray. Sure it isn't revolutionary, but who cares if you can smell amazing? And if this doesn't convince you, women love this stuff. They wont care if you wear Sauvage or some niche brand. Most people prefer Sauvage for the reasons mentioned above.

Dior Sauvage smells very good : simple, fresh, manly and a little bit metalic.
It's a quality scent (i don't feel it's cheap or generic). It's unique.
I see no similirarities, but Boss Bottled, Creed Aventus and Dior Sauvage are my most complimented fragrances.
Dior Sauvage is safe and versatile scent and a crowd pleaser (wow factor !).
Longevity and sillage are good.
Good job !

It seems, or rather, it's very clear that people are not trying describing the scent but attest either it is a pleasant fragrance or not, either you get compleiments or not. But, really, what about the scent? I just tested once in a shop and it seemed to me very close of what I remember Paco Rabbane XS in the early days. Masculine and metalic, which makes me think also of Platinum Egoiste, and for extension, Creed Himalaya, or evem GIT. Am I wrong? The ones who have wornt more than testing, could you please, say more about the scent? Thanks a lot, cheers

I am not big on this fragrance, however it isn’t always about us.

I wear fragrances to attract hot guys and to be complimented, its as much for me as everyone around me. That is why I have to say, though I don’t like how this smells I received 3 compliments from women while wearing this fragrance (not my intended audience but a win is a win). Once again, I feel this scent smells artificial but I couldn’t argue with the results.

A technical issue I have is that the sprayer is pretty weak, I spray it on and I don’t know if I got any of it on me. I don’t feel anything. I don’t expect it to shot out like a Windex bottle but this could be better.

Scent: 7/10 (nothing ground breaking, just a ok smell.)

Longevity: 7.5/10

As I frequently visit perfumeshops recently, I have smelled this fragrance many times. I actually wanted to like it, because, just as Blue the Chanel, i couldn't really bother the scent too much but there seems to be something good about it. I didn't hate it, but after smelling other fragrances it didn't jump out for me.

After reading loads of reviews I discovered that many shared my opinion but that it DID get enormous amounts of compliments. So i thought maybe it doesn't smell that good from closeby and that it could be that the trail/projection smells really good. Then I had a conversation with a female perfume fanatic at the perfume shop who owned over a 100 fragrances herself, and we talked about 'Sauvage'by Dior. She told me that whenever a female smelled 'Sauvage', that they would almost always convince their man to get it, because the females seem to LOVE it. The men didn't seem to care all too much.

So I suddenly thought about Pheromones, as it was so obvious that there was something with this fragrance that woman obsolutely LOVE. So I googled about pheromones and Dior. And there were a few articles about the old ''Eau sauvage'' by Dior. THe articles were recently published and said that Dior used Hedoine as a pheromonereceptor-activator. This made me realise that there could very well be some added pheromones in this fragrance, as the scent isn't great, but a HUGE compliment getter. I wonder what you guys think.

My actual review : scent 7/10
projection:8/10
Longevity : 8/10

I absolutely love this scent. Compliments coming from everywhere and everyone. I don't really care if I get compliments cause I wear what I like but they are nice to hear. I tried Bleu Channel, I just couldn't see myself wearing it, the test I put on in store lasted only about an hour and it was gone, nadda, smell disappeared, then I tried this ,Sauvage, still was on me 6 hrs later. I went back next day and bought it. Each to their own, I know what I like.

People who will tell you you smell nice will say the same thing about the new Hugo boss scent , I got most compliments from a scent that cat me 9 dollars at K,-mart ,being a crowd pleaser doesn't mean it's a good scent , for me sauvage smell like an AXE I used to wear in Europe ,I think charging 90 dollar that smells like an AXE that cost 3 Euro is not worth the buy

Endymion,

no mate, I was referring to the people who were losing their minds and spewing venom at this fragrance. It's a little overboard. I don't care if anyone dislikes this, but some of the stuff I've been reading it's as if Dior forced some of these people to watch their family members get sexually assaulted.

You're right, and this is a weird hobby, I'm sure I could sell my collection, buy 2 or 3 Axe sprays and people would still be saying "u smell good, m8".

Perhaps this is a hobby for maniacs, and the response to Dior Sauvage is a reflection of that.

Spend years and god knows how much money on collecting wonderful perfumes, build up your "nose" and all that crap, and then have a company like Dior who has been rocking it with the Collection Prive release a safe mainstream scent I'm sure would be jarring to some people.

It's pretty easy to not buy a bottle if you hate it, though.

@racket
Mate, so you say that people here who have actually tried this perfume and are on the intellectual level to conceive their thoughs about it are only children if they have a negative opinion? Really? A mature grown up person can have only a positive opinion about Dior Sauvage?...

1 more thing: "The majority of people in the real world...only care about what smells "good"". Yes, you are right, the majority of the people care about if you smell good, even if it's an Axe deo or just a strong smelling shower gel. So if you pay 100x more for a perfume than for an Axe deo but you get just the same feedback from those people in the real world that "you smell good", why the heck spend a bunch of money for the same effect?...

The more I wear this, the more I like it. This is becoming a pretty solid work scent for me, I've yet to hear a single negative comment about it. In fact, I've probably experienced the most unsolicited positive comments from this than any other fragrance.

You can bitch and moan and throw a temper tantrum and type out your rage on your keyboard about how this fragrance is a disgrace and how you just can't imagine that Dior would release a mainstream fragrance like this...

But guess what? The majority of people in the real world (the people who don't spend their time browsing fragrance websites) don't give a crap about what you think. They don't give a crap about how much you spent on your bottle of Aventus, they don't give a crap about the note breakdowns of your latest Amouage bottle, they don't give a crap about the sweet deal you just got on a split, they don't give a crap about what your favorite niche brands are.... They only care about what smells "good".

This is a wonderful work scent, and everyone around you will like this (assuming you don't over-spray).

Just don't pay attention to the temper tantrums of the children on here. Give it a sample, give it a try, see for yourself if it's for you.

i only tried sauvage thinking due to its name it would be a flanker of eau sauvage, whcih happens to be an old time classic favourite of mine especially for the summer as the citrus works best in the hot Mediterranean summers...

i didn't like it sorry. maybe it's because the name got me thinking of the orginal eau sauvage. it's a crowd pleaser, a commercial scent. if people like it that's fine with me. i wouldn't buy it at all.

that unimpressed i was... i don't even remember it. if one buys it and wears it i won't even recognise it. i have a very good nose and much into perfumes. it's too commercial for me yet companies need successful fragrances so that they can produce their less favourite perfumes for us still raving about their other creations. maybe my nose is not into crowd pleasing fragrances. someone wrote about bleu de chanel, l'homme ideal. guess what? i don't like them either.

i would pay more attention if the company went for a different name as not to make me have an expectation... dear LVMH please let your companies create, not just create for the sake of success. perfumery is an art. no need to kill it...

everytime this bottle appears under the perfumes review section i do have to take a sneek peek, questioning myself what has been written this time again by one of the haters.
It seems like there,s a whole bunch of them haters.
In my view these haters are sheep, blindly following the hateshepherd instead of being critical.
My advantage is that i had zero expectations on this one since i was never really a fan of the dior homme and sauvage saga on which many of the haters expectations were based.
I admit, the name is wrong and their marketing claim of natural expensive ingredients is totally wrong.
Besides that i don,t think this is a bad fragrance. I wore it a couple of times out of curiousity and it did not disturb me wearing this. It lasts a good time and you get noticed. This is a people pleaser.
What,s wrong with dior wanting to create this? Nothing wrong in my eyes. It,s their choice. Let them experiment. Keep in mind dior is at heart a designer. This is a nice, average, designer release. Nothing more, nothing less.


Edit: calling this straight-up garbage is pure arrogance. Especially when i see in the haters wardrobes that they are one million boys..

Bla bla "generic", bla bla "a shame for Dior to be releasing something as uncreative as this" bla bla.. "boring" bla bla bla.. bla bla "Axe body spray comparasions" bla bla ... You get the point.

Think of it almost as Diors take on the hugely popular Bleu de Chanel, but with a more fuzzier and warmer character instead of Bleu's sharper one. I myself quite do like this fragrance as the scent is not offensive and the fragrance itself is very versatile. Its actually a great compliment getter, especially coming from the opposite sex.

The only downside is its price tag which might put some people off with buying it and its projection and longevity which is a good average. Still, Sauvage is a great fragrance worth trying out by maybe giving it a wear once or twice, if you come across a sample.

@rykter & @Fogwalker
I basically can't call myself "hater" just because i marketed this scent as a pass.
people differ with their opinions so you can't call everyone who write negative review a "hater".
for me i tried it out recently and all i can say that it is very synthetic (and that is a fact), you can't compare it to the L'Occitane en Provence for example, which smells very natural, plus there is the price tag, it sold for 80+$ with the fact that it has to sell for much much less for such a performance.
Take CK one shock for example, it smells more natural and it sold for cheap price (almost 30$ for 100ml).
And no need to say that the ingredients are of high quality because they aren't, they are few, and the prominent note is Ambroxan which smells like a blast of chemicals.
Again there is a comparison: Lalique's Encre noir, it is all about Iso-E-Super, and it sold for much less and it performs much better.

Conclusion :
It should be sold for what it deserves.

I like this scent personally, but it's not for everyone. It's not your typical fresh, pleasant, complement-getting smell. It's a little more on the unique,deep,and daring side. Definitely for someone who appears more mature. I personally can't pull this off, because people just don't expect me to smell like that when they approach me. But I do find myself going back to smell the sample from time to time and find it quite enjoyable. To put it simply, just look who they chose to be the face of this cologne! Would you expect Johnny Depp to smell sweet and fruity?!? Conclusion: It's simple, masculine, and bold.

Everyone was saying give this a second chance. Lady killer, pleasing, good smelling etc blah blah....so I did. My results with multiple days of wearing on my skin. Even worse then I expected. The initial blast is still strong fruity alcohol synthetic mess. It changes into a strange peppery watery vibe. Lastly I get a weak synthetic amber woody mess.
What bothers me most about this cologne is the fact that they designed it to be generic. I own generic fragrances but at least they were trying for something else. People think Bleu is generic, wait till they try this. Basically throughout the short lived life of this cologne I basically smell the air surrounding the cologne counter at a department store like Macy's. Not even the rich smell as you stand immediately next to it, rather the smell from a couple of meters away where there is a thin cloud of generic manly smells.
Scent is subjective but it saddens me that so many renowned fragrances lovers in the community can give this such high praise. Without even comparing this to actual good scents, I truly see no merit to owning this scent. It is basically an Axe scent dressed up in a nice glass bottle (Which is amazing) and has a $80 price tag slapped on it. In fact I asked multiple people if this smells good, they mostly just wrinkle their noses and say "Not really", or "what is that? I don't smell anything" or "is that air freshener?" No 'panty dropper' here, so where are people coming up with these claims??

Most advanced noses don't care for this scent and initially I didn't either but decided to give it a second chance and oh boy I'm glad that I did.

Ladies really like this scent and it generates compliments if worn correctly. Take a shower, groom well, throw on a button shirt and jeans and people will be drawn and want to know what is that cologne you're wearing.

I will not give my rating for this review bc i feel one needs to form his/her own opinion of this fragrance without being under the high influences of other peoples opinions.

Forget all the reviews and judge for yourself because there are way too many misleading reviews here. This juice smells great - compared this to several Parfums De Marly scents and the handful of young females preferred this scent over such scents as Herod, Habdan and Galloway. This is not unique or groundbreaking enough for the majority of us fragsnobs on here - it just smells very very good. This reminds me too much of bleu de chanel - maybe a mix of Drakkar and Bleu de Chanel though. This reminds you of something you may have smelt before and for a 'new' fragrance with such a name, it crushes many peoples' raised hopes. I prefer this to Bleu de Chanel but because I already have the latter...and many others new frags, I will hold off.
Great scent, great sillage and longevity and medium projection.
UPDATE: Aside from Creed, a cologne with Ive managed to draw rave reviews from select beautiful women, THIS cologne (SAUVAGE) has given me so many compliments - more than all the dozens and maybe even hundreds of scents Ive applied to myself in the past. It is very likeable but it is sexy at the same time - its not so complex that it makes someones nose work to understand it - it is simply smooth, pleasant, fresh and masculine. At first it bothered me how similar it seemed to some other frags but now that Ive had time to appreciate the nuances and garner all of these compliments, I love this stuff. Ive been referred to as a 'walking public service' as I wear this stuff in the office...and through this shopping season through almost every clothing store, Ive had dozens of cashiers and other passers-by give me their praise. A girl told me that she loved what I was wearing and that someone before me had something nice on but that it quickly gave her a headache which is why she really had to tell me how much she liked it. Most people asked what it was...teling them 'Sauvage' was fairly interesting. I think I cultured quite a few locals lol. From my own experience though, I appreciate and understand the girl had to say - I can wear this stuff all day and have Never gotten get sick of it or felt I had applied too much. Additionally, I have found this has moderate performance. The sprayer is a little weak but I spray several sprays. Im actually hoping less wear this so it maintains a sense of exclusivity. This might be the first bottle I finish in a long time, and THEE first bottle (1.7) I finish in less than 3 months. Its nuts.

I havent finished a bottle since the first time I got into fragrance when Kenneth Cole came out with Reaction when I was a High Schooler. This is only the second bottle I finished but whats more amazing is how quickly I finished this despite having such a large collection. I can tell this is one of my favorites. Definitely garners compliments all around and makes me feel good.

Haters gonna hate.

This is a very masculine scent that generates a lot of compliments. It lasts long, has moderate to great sillage and isn't really generic. No matter what people say, you can clearly distinguish Sauvage when someone is wearing it.

Sure, it's a bit synthetic. Yes, it's a bit linear. Mmmkay, there is no real innovation for that matter. Yes, the marketing is a bit tacky...

But if you're not a fragrance purist, why care? If you wear fragrances to please yourself and others and you're looking for something sexy, a bit fresh and masculine you have a winner here. No mystical and magical fragrance god is going to strike you down for enjoying a mass appealing fragrance. I'll bet you that in 2 years people will be recommending this all over the place.

Glad I bought it, great office scent. No wimpy scent yet very acceptable. Great balance in this one.

Compliments? Easy my friends. Girls from all age groups will like this, men will notice your presence and wonder why you seem so alpha today.

Evolution? Starts with a 'zinnnggg' of freshness but quickly evolves to a woody ambery base, very punchy, very present. Doesn't evolve too much any more but that's ok, all the good stuff is in this punchy scent trail. Guess the punch comes from the peppers.

I know there's alot of controversy concerning this fragrance...but to me there's 2 kinds of fragrance people. Those who are connoisseurs who research, know alot of details, backgrounds and facts on alot of fragrances and are hardcore collectors with alot of bottles. The other is people who don't go that deep and just wanna smell good and it's fun to sample lots of scents and don't really delve that deep into it all and take it too seriously. I fall into the latter category. I buy lots of decants and it's just a casual fun hobby for me. I don't have a lot of money to throw at it. That being said.....

Just got a decant of this today. I haven't cared for the Dior fragrances I've tried. Just don't work on my skin very well it seems. Smell okay on a test strip but not on my skin.

But to me this is a totally fine scent. I get a little Aventus in the opening. And as has been said a million times...reminds me a little of BDC. But I had no big expectations going into this as Dior hasn't been a friend of mine, so I'm not comparing it against past offerings as most here have because I've never really worn or spent any time with any of them.

I probably won't wear it much just because I prefer sweeter fragrances and it's much too strong, but to me there's nothing wrong with it. I think they wanted a mass appeal scent and thats what they got with this even tho it's getting alot of negative feedback.

@Josh839: I don't think the "niche snobs" were the ones who didn't like this scent, generally-speaking. It was those who liked Eau Sauvage, Dior Homme, etc. who were very disappointed. Then there are people like me, who don't want to walk around breathing in ambroxan all day (from what I've heard), but who already own a ton of "cheapos" that we enjoy, and spending $80 or so on a 100 ml bottle of this strikes us as close to financial insanity. If it works for you, that's great, and I'm sure it will be a big success for Dior. But on the other hand, do you really expect someone with a few hundred bottles, most of them less expensive than Sauvage (by a wide margin) to think it's something we should buy?

First we all hated Bleu de Chanel. Then we all hated Guerlain L'homme Ideal. Now we all hate Dior Sauvage. Guess what? None of these are bad fragrances. In fact, I really like L'homme Ideal, Bleu is good, and this one, to be honest, I've only sampled, but guess what? I get a feeling it's pretty good too!! What's with all the hate?

Dead common dreck.

And that's perhaps the best thing I could speak of this. I wanted to see if the hype surrounding this was warranted. Plot spoiler: It's not.

From the outset, it smells like almost every other popular men's fragrance on the market of late, and the department stores in the US will probably promote this relentlessly through the Holiday season. It's another Bleu de Chanel.

What you smell is linear. First spray through to the bitter end, it's the same very sharp 'citrus/pepper' notes we've come to expect because...well, it's accessible, and if Bleu worked, just tweak the formula and Voila! I'm clearly not a fan, so if you jumped the Bleu bandwagon and like that, the best I could say is that you'd likely tolerate this. Otherwise, it's cheap and nondescript and therefore a perfect gift for someone who doesn't mind smelling cheap and nondescript.

I'm confused about this one!

I know that Francois Demachy supposedly created this one, but
it doesn't come across as one of his gems.

I get peppery, bergamot, soapy characteristics...and yes, that ambroxan.
The dry down is all ambroxan for me.

For me, not one of Dior's finest hours.

You'd think Dior took a crap inside a perfume bottle the way people are frothing at the mouth in rage over this stuff.

It's nothing special, but it's by no means a horrible scent. If you want a safe, people-pleasing scent, then try a sample and see if it's right for you.

Bleu De Chanel was met with similar vitriolic hatred when it was released, and it's now one of the most popular men's fragrances around today. In a few months I think the opinion of this one will radically change once people start to calm down.

Taking into account that Mr. Demachy created olfactory pieces of art such as Fahrenheit absolute, Eau Sauvage Parfum, and Fahrenheit le Parfum, Sauvage is light years away from being an artwork; it's just a good fragrance, but nothing trascendental. That said, I can't deny this is a perfume I might get to buy sometime as it is quite enjoyable.

No.

Cheap-smelling blast of synthetic 'bergamot' and a violent, nose-piercing woody amber. I'd write more but there is no more. Creatively, it's right up there with Light Blue (men's version). Dreck.

Unworthy of being in the Dior lineup.

(The bottle is top notch...but you can't wear the bottle.)

I mean, it's not a bad fragrance. It's just forgettable. On my skin it starts good and warm, but after about 1 hour I can only smell citrus. Definitely not for me, and definitely not a winter fragrance

I like Sauvage and i'm actually buying a bottle.

There's something "abstract" about this composition that is extremely interesting, minimalistic and addicting.

The scent shifts from a colorful juicy/fruity cedrat opening into a grey metallic marine accord with subtle hints of slightly sweet smoke (more like a match smoke) peeking in and out.

I detect labdanum, smoke and some edible spices. But the most dominant accord for me is the ambroxan with its addicting marine metallic smell.

A modern abstract complex scent that smells mainstream. I'll take that.

I can't say that i was disappointed when i smelled it! i actually know that this has hate gauge popularity and after trying it i can understand why.
first of all it is not horrid, but cheap smelling (i mean the quality) and there is no way that someone will notice anyone wearing this because it is:
*weak in performance
*very generic
*hugely synthetic
*no development
*it lacks character, with no unique note to remember
*if the notes used are few they should make impact with nice blending and fitting together which is not the case here.

All in all not recommended as a blind buy.

I've been lurking for two years without joining and have nearly always found the overall thrust of the reviews to be useful and fun.
But man, this one finally goaded me to sign up so I could toss my two cents into the pot.

This IS a relatively generic, office-safe 'manly-smelling' fragrance. But it's a great example of that genre, and I just fail to see why that is a problem.
The House of Dior is in the business of art, expressed through fashion and fragrance and whatnot. But that's just it. It is a BUSINESS. A business must bring in what is called 'money' in order to keep its doors open. So there is a place for the high and the less high, and to demand otherwise is to be a) snobby and b) ignorant of economic reality.

Those of you crabbing about the sin of discontinuing Fahrenheit Absolute fail to understand that if it were moving enough units, it would still be around. Not bloody many companies are going to axe a product that sells a unit every five minutes globally. So if you like something you must buy it and tell other people about it, and accept that if not enough people do, you're going to lose it.
I mean, that's why Kim Kardashian has a career. Everyone claims to loathe her, but her show gets eyeballs and her tweets get followed and her product sells, so we are stuck with her. Sorry, but the cancellation of scents we love is our own fault.

And everyone is aware that talented actors, directors, screenwriters, etc occasionally take good paying 'commercial/lowbrow' work in order to be able to afford to take a low salary on the artsy stuff they really like, or to get the trust from the studio to finance their highbrow niche work. Such is the world.
If this fragrance brings people who would otherwise be buying Axe into real fragrance, like a gateway drug, that's great. And I'm sorry, but some things you do for yourself and some for those around you. The clothes I wear to work are not the clothes I wear elsewhere. The fragrances I wear sometimes follow the same logic. Not everyone in your office is going to like having to analyze the face punch they just got from Leather Oud. They shouldn't be forced to. If you ONLY wear fragrance for your own private purposes, do not buy this. If you even NOW AND THEN wear fragrance to be office-appropriate/get women to hang out with you/etc, this is your juice.
It's well-done for what it is . It smells good and safe. That's fine. My only problem with it was that FOR what it is, it is too expensive, and the name does not in my opinion fit the scent. I also feel people would have had less spitting outrage had the name not been 'Sauvage'. Fail on those two points; everything else is fine by me.

Original post: Wore this today for the first time after snagging a Sephora sample. I tried to come at this with an open mind, but have to agree with many others. To me, it is a synthetic, lightweight, mainstream fragrance. Nothing too complicated nor offensive. It really does have a fresh, out of the shower vibe... could have easily been a Dlish flanker to Clean Man/Clean Shower Fresh for Men. Smells fine, but for the price and disappointing performance, I will pass.

Edit: Time to eat crow? So ok, after receiving this as a gift, I made myself wear it for several days in a row. Not only did the compliments come rolling in like crazy (even 4 hours after spraying when I thought the scent was gone), but I actually developed an appreciation for the ambroxan overload. My review has been changed to a "like" and I look forward to wearing it more often in the future. Sorry for my snap judgment Dior.

At last I've had the chance to try this widely-criticized perfume!

When I smelled it, I didn't think it was something special, spectacular, or innovative. However, it does smell really nice, though a bit synthetic and detergenty at the beginning. The pepper and citrus are the most noticeable ingredients, and they remind me of some hair gel that used to be sold at department stores in my country.

As a whole, Dior Sauvage is nothing wonderful, but it isn't anything really crappy, either. If I would buy it? Maybe, but I wouldn't pay almost $100 for such a product when you can find cheaper and more interesting fragrances out there.

All the bad reviews! Before I tried it today I honestly thought I would be smelling crap in a moment.. but no I find sauvage pretry nice and decent actually, i dont find any reason to hate it. I believe all the bad reviews are due to the high expectations everyone had for this frag I mean JOHNY DEPP advertised for this! Anyway I do like it, but for that pricetag, I think im gonna pass too. But its nice

My wife chose this scent for me. I mention that to draw a distinction between women's and men's reaction to the fragrance. There is considerable dislike for this fragrance but I urge you to consider the source before allowing reviews to sway you. For me it draws daily compliments. I literally find women leaning in to sniff. The initial scent hits with a tremendous blast of something resembling Aventus which I presume to be the bergamot. That fades in 20-30 minutes and you are riding a spicy ambroxan train for hours... I feel that it stays linear from that point. Its fresh and clean. Not in the least bit cloying or overpowering. It radiates within arms length and if there is a slight breeze will travel a bit further. Get a sample and give it a chance.

I received a miniature of this fragrance on my last trip to the beauty store. (I have not seen the ads so I am unbiased by it) at first I wasnt sure but still gave it to my man to try (he has a very acidic body chemistry so a lot of fragrances turn on him) and I have to say that it is a keeper, Nothing of a game changer by all means but makes me want to smell him all the time it is fresh without being watery spicy without being too warm.. it is just nice.

Sampled it last month at the Hong Kong Airport(Duty Free), Sprayed a couple of shots on my wrist and also on the paper,As mentioned already not anything out of the world, but a very good casual scent to wear and enjoy, (My entire flight journey,was sniffing it and didn't get anything harsh, which I really liked)lasted almost/more than 6 hrs and then turned out to be a cool skin scent.. Overall a very decant fragrance..

Just got my first sample. At first I didn't want to like it because of all the hype, but then I wanted to smell it again, and again. I feel like a "Sauvage" lion that can't stop sniffing something unidentifiable, like the video with Johnny Depp, searching... for something...

First spray smells of citrus, pineapple and calabrian bergamot. Drydown smells of lavender and amber with fleeting fresh and green. Leaves a very clean smelling skin scent for hours after that reminds me strongly of Montblanc Legend and Skulls and Roses.

Makes me feel like Jack Sparrow, ready to pillage and plunder with my undead pirate army.

First I'll start by saying yes, this scent isn't a game changer and it isn't too unique. Sauvage is a safe, non-offensive scent which has already got me a lot of compliments. But this shouldn't qualify it as a bad one like many are saying. I tried it with a sample at 1pm, on my skin, expecting to be disappointed. It lasted lasted all the way up till next morning though not very noticeable but I still could smell it. That's a long lasting cologne especially compared to most these days. During my time with the sample I saw no comparison to bleu de Chanel, the scent is similar to mont blanc legend though sauvage is more dimensional and stronger. And I will say, I am no master at picking out what smells like what and particular ingredients in colognes so don't hate if you disagree with the comparison. So after smelling it on my wrist in the morning I to buy it because longevity is one of the main things I look for in a cologne second to scent, which this one is great. It is definitely something you could wear everyday for most occasions. It is a very musky smell which almost smells like B.O. but in a good way. I don't see where all the hate is coming from, but I do recommend and hope this helps. Especially just at least a sample to see if you like or not.

After all the fuss and commentaries about the last -and, seems, one of the most pollemical- release for the (former) prestigious Maison Dior, I had to test it for myself and see if all the terrible things that they were saying about this perfume, were true.

Is Sauvage such a bad scent? Well, it smells pleasant, and it's long lasting and with a good projection...but some expensive men shower gel smell also fine, and costs less. Because that was what this perfume made me to think about: an expensive shower gel for men, very expensive...but shower gel after all. Not so bad, but unworth of the name of Dior, the association with the legendary Eau Savage and last, but not less, the price tag.

The adv with Jonnhy Depp (who looks like everything but chic or classy -as a matter of fact, he looks in this adv like if he hadn't go to sleep or to take a shower in several days- just compare him with Gerard Butler in the Hugo Boss adv, they have both side by side in the place in which I tested this) will be remmembered as the worst perfume adv since that nonsensical Chanel commercial with Brad Pitt.

It's a nice scent. Not ground breaking but definitely nice. Probably gets all the hate because of Dior raising the bar so high with previous releases and this one isn't "unique" enough?
Number one thing that got me is the sprayer is INCREDIBLE! Why wont more companies put decent sprayers on their bottles.
The fragrance starts off very fresh, not ordinary, but not strange.
What I don't like is the drydown stage. It smells so much like I just washed my hands with a bar soap that I can't quite recall. Ivory? Maybe Fa?
Anyways I know its smells like a bar of soap I've used before so it's nothing I would buy.
10/10 for the sprayer
5/10 for the scent

How can we trust the love, like, dislike grid up top when it shows 758 people have voted but only 222 have it and 26 had it? Oh that's right bc everyone votes before it even came out and the others just put dislike bc everyone else is doing it or smelled it at the counter on the way out of Macy's . . Always sample buys. I'm glad I did with this one bc now I have a full bottle . This fragrance is amazing and gets soooooo many complements from the ladies so it's got a special place in my designer portion of my collection. Now if compliments don't matter and you buy fragrances based on popular reviewers opinions and what they have in their collection then you will probably dislike and pass, which is fine. I just wish there were more real people out there that get in this hobby bc they like it and don't care what others think or say.

This scent has some sort of socery going on or something. I tested this on a strip and it smelled like Montblanc Legend. I went ahead and bought a bottle and sprayed some on my skin and it smells like a fruiter version of Creed Aventus. Might need to test this more. Overall to me it's not as bad as some people make it out to be.


Update- Got a compliment after office hours, sprayed this on at 8am and was complimented on how good I smell at 7pm. Give this scent a chance and you might find yourself liking it just like me

The past sunday i smelled it at Nordstrom on the test paper, reminded me of invictus by Paco. Bought it on a whim and wore it to the library that night (im a college student)...got 2 or 3 compliments immediately. To me it smelled WEIRD on my skin...i repeat WEIRD...

the next day i wore it one last time before I took it back to Nordstrom..when i got back to campus, i got a compliment from a girl i hugged...and 2 other ladies at my job 3 hours later!!..im so confused...this juice HAS to have pheromones or something in it because to me i smell almost like BO, and raw fish out of salt water but the women LOVE this stuff...i may buy it again for the sole purpose of it being a female magnet

A very enticing, sensual, raw scent. But the advertising is ridiculous. They could have just used mating sperm whales or something along those lines. (Ambergris, the rare natural version of ambroxin is a sperm whale secretion in case you wondered) I dropped a fragrance card in my purse, carried it a few days, threw it out, and weeks later still catch whiffs of this. Ambroxin is nearly molecularly identical to natural ambergris, or so I've heard, so synthetic in the case of Sauvage is not an issue. Now I just need to buy some for my man.

I dont get all the hate for this one. its not a masterpiece, but considering the recent designer products, its a nice scent. Zeasty, peppery, soapy even mossy fragance like the oakmoss on aventus. Projection and longevity is amazing!! In the past few years only roadster, zegna forte, and la nuit can give you this. Niche lovers, stick to niche, this is a good designer fragance, that is not bad at all.

DIor Sauvage is MASCULINE/UNIQUE / ADDICTING / YOUNG AND SEXY.


this cologne is more for a young man in a suite. target age is 25-35. I got a lot of compliments wearing this. it projects very well and longevity is also good. i am just wondering if it got compliments because it smells good or because it projects well?

likes. young and sexy. its dior's signature savage sent for the new young generation.

dislikes. dior did not want to take a risk. its a unique well done fragrance but nothing special. missing that wow factor.

8/10 scent
8/10 projection
8/10 longevity

overall 8/10

Besides all the negative reviews, here's my review. So i smelled this fragrance today and i gotta say it's simple. No complex smells but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. If you're looking for a simple/casual fragrance that isn't overwhelming than this is it. Is it the best casual fragnance? No, certainly not but it also isn't the worse. If u looking for something simple i would say, give it a smell.

Scent 7-7,5 / 10

A lot of people compare this one to Bleu de Chanel, and because of this, I wanted to check it out. I went to Nordstrom, and to be honest it smells nothing like BDC. Perhaps the comparison is in the vision/goal of the company, with wanting to create a mainstream yet interesting scent, but I really don't think it smells anything like BDC.

That being said, BDC is my signature scent, and while I respect (but disagree with) the opinion that it's boring and generic, at the very least most people agree that it's a pleasant scent. However, I wouldn't even call Dior Sauvage a pleasant scent. I really can't describe this scent at all except that it just does not smell good. Hard to find a redeeming quality in this one.

If you're on the hunt for a new signature scent, and have not tried BDC, I would recommend it to anyone 100%. I don't think I'd ever point anyone towards Dior Sauvage, though.

EDIT: Put this one aside for awhile, and gave it another shot. Wore it out to a few bars tonight, and a bunch of people asked me what I was wearing. I also liked it much better once an appropriate amount was on me and I let it develop. What a change in opinion I've had on this one. If you didn't like it at first, definitely give it another chance!

If Sauvage was released as Dior Homme Ambre I would have smelled it, got exactly what I expected, said "Nice bottle." and put it back on the shelf. I might even have picked up a bottle for myself when Dior Homme Ambre Intense rolled out for Christmas 2016. Instead, they named this nullity Sauvage. When it was first released, I described it as fantastically tedious. But it isn't merely tedious, it's offensive and, in this IFRA benighted age, it's adding insult to injury.

This isn't a matter of taste or subjective opinion, this is an objectively disrespectful treatment of Dior's heritage and the integrity of their brand. This release bears no relationship to Eau Sauvage, perhaps the greatest men's fragrance ever released and one of a tiny handful of fragrances of any family, concentration, or era whose influence and technical accomplishment rival Chanel No. 5, its trail blazing use of hedione arguably unique as a direct analogy to Ernest Beaux's mastery of aldehydes. These facts, not opinions, were used calculatedly to create expectation and did so despite enlisting Johnny Depp as the face of the campaign. In retrospect, he was the right choice. Sexy once upon a time, a teen heart throb turned daring art house actor, now settled into middle age and settling for middle of the road, inoffensive movie roles, raking in the billions and giving the men without chests some sense of destiny as they roll out of their minivans and across the parking lot of the soul to the nearest Olive Garden.

I don't blame Dior for shaking the money maker any more than I do Guerlain for Homme Ideale or Chanel for Bleu de Chanel. Dior Ambre Homme would have signalled a release for young men with office jobs and limited imagination. Depressing, even dispiriting, but accurate. Instead, Dior used the name Sauvage, evoked its history, called down the spirits of Edmond Roudnitska and Alain Delon. They did this to get our hopes up, to generate buzz and stretch their SEO pre-release, and never mind the disappointment of the tiny minority with an education and standards, and to hell with us as the cash rolls in from a bovine mass drenched in ambrox for dollars on the penny.

After all, even here in this gnostic sanctuary, this nothing of cologne will find its defenders. It's all relative, right? No, it isn't. Facts are stubborn things, words have meaning, and Dior marketing knows this or the word Sauvage has no meaning.

And now, of course, it doesn't. And, if this is how they intend to carry on, neither does the name Dior.

This gets better with each wearing. I cannot help but continue to defend sauvage. Absolutely a quality fragrance that I find something new to enjoy with each wearing. I own dior homme intense and Fahrenheit and I love all 3 in their own right. Quickly becoming a signature scent for warmer weather. If your budget is designer and not niche, Dior and chanel are almost always worth the investment.

I am with Scottyvizz below. Guys - calm down. Sauvage is not a work of art. I sure as hell would not give this an A or 10 out of 10. It is OK, it smells fresh and people around me seem to like it. I do not get too excited about it, and I actually bought a bottle. I will admit, when I first sniffed Sauvage, my automatic thought was 'this is a Dior fragrance??'

I am not going to surround Dior headquarters with a pitchfork demanding that they remove Sauvage from their roster of fragrances. It is what it is. I have smelled Dune and Higher Energy too. Nothing special for me. I do not like Fahrenheit. I love/own Dior Homme, DHI, DHP, DHE and DHS...and also own Bois D Argent, Ambre Nuit and Feve Delicieuse. I get that Dior makes amazing and unique fragrances. So they decided to offer something they thought would be more universally appealing? Life goes on.

This community has become very jaded. It's as if Dior has never come out with an ordinary fragrance before (Higher Energy anyone?).
The scent isn't terrible, in fact it's relatively pleasant. I certainly wouldn't buy it, but I'm not going to kick and scream accusing Dior of cheating its consumers. It's a pleasant smell and lasts a good 8 hours. Very crowd pleasing, in the crossfire of Fierce and L'Homme Libre.
I think this community needs to calm down. This isn't the beginning of the end for the Dior house. Not every release is going to be a masterpiece. Cool your jets people. Dior still has a wide range of beautiful creations that are available in most department stores and online retailers.

Having seen the adverts for the fragrance with Johnny Depp, I was wondering what to expect. Was this going to be slightly quirky or an eccentric metrosexual expression of the perfumer’s art.

After all, just think of some of the characters Depp’s played; the Sweeny Todd - Demon Barber, Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, Edward Scissorhands and the Lone Ranger. Was this going to be something for all seasons and occasions, or something outlandishly quirky?

Or did have it wrong? The bottle was hardly eccentric or quirky! Was this going to be a daring modern youthful interpretation of Eau Sauvage?

One spray and once the peppery, slightly musky bergamot spray clears, to my nose all I was left with was bergamot and more bergamot with hints of pepper and ambroxan. Personally, I think the peppery note works well with bergamot. However, IMO the ambroxan by contrast just doesn’t work. It’s insipid and too soft, with no character or strength to hold its own in this composition. Then again, it’s a bit ambivalent like Jack Sparrow! It needs something strong to harmonise and elevate the composition. Sadly, it has none of the Eau Sauvage “DNA”either!

When can you wear it? Good question! On my skin, it lasted for about 1/2hr, before becoming a light skin scent and completely vanished within 1hr. Not even a vague hint or trace. Strangely though, inspite of my misgivings, several people I asked thought it wasn’t bad – while it lasted.

To me, the fragrance seems to be reminiscent of the “Lone Ranger” rather than the swashbuckling “Pirates”.

Poor Edmond Roudnitska is turning around in his grave. Even to use part of the name of his legendary Eau Sauvage for this absolutely boring, generic, clone Nr. 5895347, lower-middle category frag is sacrilage. I have smelled 5 € body sprays that are more pleasant.
I think Dior should spend more on the formula and ingredients and less on Mr. Depp in that ridiculously cheesy and idiotic ad.
Dior is always surprising me. When I would think that they cannot fall lower any more, they still manage.

So far this fragrance has received bad or average reviews. My take on it I've actually likened to it. The more I put this fragrance on, the more I like it. It grows on you. The scent isn't anything like other fragrances. It has a unique, fresh and breezy smell to it. Reminds me of a Mediterranean country where there are fig trees, and lemon. Don't let the negative reviews put you off. Give it a try. You may like it.
It lasts a long time. I get a about 7+ hours on my skin.

This smells almost exactly like Mont Blanc Legend, which you can buy for much less.

I have no problem adding this to my 100+ bottle collection. I think it's a great scent and will do very well. It's a clean and fresh smelling scent for the average person, does it stand against any of my niche frags? No. But there's a time and place for everything. This stuff seems to last long too. 8 hrs on me easy. Don't jump on the bashing train, stay open minded and smell this first, if you like it like I did and don't care what people think like me as well, you may end up with a full bottle like me too. That plus the girl that was working at saks was drop dead gorgeous and sold it to me ....

With the enormous budget Dior has, I cannot believe this is the shit they came out with after 10 years as a pillar fragrance. There is probably 10 cents worth of aromachemicals in this bottle, which is beautiful btw. In terms quality its very similar to celebuscents available at your local CVS or Walgreens.This scent seems destined for TJ Maxx. It is pleasant and boring and very one dimensional. With so many better options on the market, Dior Sauvage is a joke which will fade within a year or so. This does not hold a candle to Bleu de Chanel, which is an infinitely better buy and cheaper too.

Dior wanted to make a very VERY simple innofensive fragrance, it´s ok, probaly is going to sell a lot indeed. BUT name it "Sauvage" is really a VERY STUPID marketing, ´cause it´s just like LYING to your consumers, sorry Dior. There is absolutly NOTHING about "Sauvageness" in it... and it´s not a matter of "my opinion", just see the general comments here... The proper name for this should be "Inoffensive"... Shame on you...

The marketing campaign seems to allude to a "bad-ass fragrance" fit for a rocker. I was expecting something sweaty and leathery akin to Eau d'Hermes or Bandit...?

Sadly,it smells like a Coty rehash - something from the David Beckham line to be exact. But selling it at Dior's ridiculous prices in such an unimaginative bottle is highway robbery at best.

Having said that, it will probably become Dior's runaway success ala Bleue de Chanel. It will appeal to the clueless masses. Praise follows success. Then, everybody suddenly goes from accusing it for being generic to calling it a masterpiece! I've seen this happening on here before with Bleue. And it will most definitely happen again.

Sauvage it ain't. I would rename it SoBlah.

Today, I had a chance to try it. I think this doesn't worth its price. The smell is good, I have no problem with that but the longevity was only 3-4 hours on my skin. Also Dior could make a far better fragrance than this in terms of smell. As I said, smell is good but not classy. There can be many fragrances smells similar but way cheaper than this. I would buy it if the price is much lower, but now stay away from it.

I was lucky enough to get a half a spray out of the completely diminished tester at Macy's today.

To be honest I really need the full spray to give an honest review but what I did smell wasn't bad. It reminded me a little bit of Gucci by Gucci for men. It has that pleasant unoffensive magazine insert/mall smell that is enjoyed by everyone.

I don't think this is a failure at all. Nor do I think the performance is awful...SURPRISE. From what I can smell it is a well done generic that will pay Dior dividends on their investment. I have smelled a lot worse.

I will definitely sample again with a full spray.

I found it pity to see all those negative reviews about this adorable perfume , at the end it is an art creation not to be compared to others , from my side i find a real fresh long lasting with great silage perfumes which raised my mood , it is a simple combination of unusual material creating a nice end result , this perfume can be casual and can be occasionally , day and night .
nice perfume , even the price is affordable , the only thing i can comment negatively is the monotonie and steadiness or this perfume .

I sprayed it on a test strip today, and didn't like it at all. Right from the opening, the first thing it reminded me of was (don't hate me) "generic" men's deodorant. Which isn't bad, but this was sharp and dark, with some smokiness to it that gave me a headache. I couldn't detect any strong citrus notes, as the pepper and ambroxan felt really strong.
I put the test strip in my pocket, and smelled it again hours later. Okay, there's some faint fruitiness to it, but the main scent is very similar to what I smelled at the department store. Projection seems low. This could be a nice scent for a masculine deodorant/body wash/shaving cream, as it does smell clean and fresh. It's not something I find attractive, though. I'm going to have to test it again, but so far, that's my first impression.

As for comparisons with Bleu de Chanel, I suppose it's only about the "generic" vibe, but here's the thing: I find BdC to be a very pleasant and less harsh "generic" scent. I
