I have a love/hate relationship with Sauvage. The opening is sparkling bright with the citrus and ambroxan, but this barely lasts an hour. After that the drydown is so heavy on the ambroxan that it smells really generic and acidic on my skin.
This perfume surely does smell better on clothes than on my skin. The longevity and projection are far above average.
I've received no major compliments as yet, in that department Bleu de Chanel does wonders.
Here's my verdict:
Smell: Opening 10/10, Drydown 4/10
This one was love at first sniff! I was on a sniffing spree at Paris Gallery in UAE, and this was newly launched at that time. I had heard the love , hate reviews and I decided to try this one. Wow, This has very beautiful citrus opening with burst of freshness and Dior Class. This is definitely my go to scent when I want to smell fresh and classy. I am yet to find someone who had smelled this on me and didn't like it. Its suitable for casual evenings, Office, parties and pretty much everything. Very versatile scent and good performance too. Stays for about 8 plus hours on skin and may be for 24 hours plus on fabric. Projects for first 1.5 to 2 hours and then starts staying close to your skin. Overall rating 9/10.
The first time i sniffed this really liked this,and after using it for 2 weeks or so i have no regrets whatsoever it has done me wonders and so far it has really got me a lot of compliments and also a quite a few notices
Longevity: 8 to10 hours which is great of a freshy
Projection: on my skin it was for 3 maybe 4 hours
Compliments: 10/10 Amazing
All in all i think this is a great fragrance
