Sauvage is an act of creation inspired by wide-open spaces. A powerfully fresh trail, raw and noble all at once.
A smell like a spell. A trail of warm sandalwood and mellow tonka bean lightened by the freshness of a spicy mandarin
“For this new Parfum, I imagined an intense freshness meeting the smoothness of an Oriental scent. I kept the powerful soul of Sauvage intact by giving it nocturnal accents, an animal attraction and some rounder facets.”
The juicy and spicy freshness of Sauvage exudes new sensual and enveloping facets of vanilla absolute.
The powerful freshness of Sauvage exudes new sensual and mysterious facets, amply renewing itself with the signature of an ingenious composition. Calabrian bergamot, as juicy and spirited as ever, invites new spicy notes to add fullness and sensuality, as the woody ambery trail of Ambroxan® is wrapped in the smoky accents of Papua New Guinean vanilla absolute for greater virility. François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, drew inspiration from the desert in the magical hour of twilight. Mixed with the coolness of the night, the burning desert air exudes profound fragrances. In the hour when the wolves come out and the sky is set ablaze, a new magic unfolds.
"I didn't create Eau de Parfum Sauvage by working on power. Its signature is already very identifiable. It was not a matter of exaggerating or saturating the composition. I was striving more to enrich each of the dominant notes to give it a new colour." François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator
Reggio Bergamot François Demachy likes his men's fragrances to open with a snap of citrus. For the house of Dior, he chose an exclusive bergamot that he shaped with local producers to obtain a "custom" signature. His bergamot is like a whirlwind of juicy freshness that sweeps everything up in its path. Drenched in the Calabrian sun, it is fruitier and develops unique, zesty facets with a tinge of pepper.
