Eau Sauvage Review

Eau Sauvage is the classic masculine Dior fragrance. Created back in 1966 and still on shelves today, for good reason. Eau Sauvage is famous for including a high dose of Hedione in the formula, to give a luminous, lightly floral character. It, or one of it’s many similar spinoffs, deserves a place in any man’s wardrobe.

eausauvage1Eau Sauvage opens with an interesting play on textures, dry and dusty, with a somehow wet and soapy Lemon note, similar to DKNY Woman. But sharper, crisp, and clean, with a sherberty quality to it.
Moving on to a green, leafy floral heart, still maintaining it’s soapy clean quality. Clear and bright, feeling masculine with the wet grean leaves and it’s dusty feel is persistent. It reminds me at this point of Caron’s Troisiemme Homme.
The powdery, woody feeling base is thick, not soft and bright like many modern masculines. It also has a musky, leathery feel, which reminds me of Aramis, but cleaned up, and a green note from the oakmoss.
Base point for hundreds of copy-cats, Eau Sauvage is the king of clean, soapy masculines.
