Sauvage for Men is a fragrance by Christian Dior, launched in 2015. Created by perfumer François Demachy, even though its name originates from the fragrance Eau Sauvage from 1966, they have no obvious scent relation. This patchouli-amber mixture with herbal and metallic notes is inspired by hot deserts, open spaces and blue skies with rocky landscapes.
The first impression is of sharp citrus peels followed by Bergamot pepperiness, accented by elemi. The best part of Sauvage is the contrast between the bright aromatic top notes and the woody-ambery drydown. Radically fresh, raw and noble at the same time, this composition is reportedly prevalent with carefully selected natural ingredients.
