Dior Sauvage Eau De Toilette vs Eau De Parfum Review

Dior Sauvage Eau De Toilette vs Eau De Parfum Review

Dior Sauvage is definitely the fragrance that left the mark in the industry and it most certainly remains one of the best sellers today for men. In this article we will look at Dior Sauvage EDT and EDP. 

Imported Perfumes Philippines is one of the trusted perfumes store in the Philippines; you can be assured to find authentic perfumes from abroad in the Philippines.

What Does Dior Sauvage Smell Like?

Straight out of the bottle, Dior Sauvage smells like a fresh, adventurous, spicy, classic man fragrance, but at the same time, it’s not something you didn’t smell before, so don’t expect much in terms of uniqueness.
It does smell like a manly, wild, and sexy fragrance, but a lot of people get reminded of Bleu De Chanel, Versace Dylan Blue, and Prada Lunna Rosa Carbon.

However, Sauvage has its own uniqueness – it’s similar to others, but if you’re to be blindfolded and you get to smell these ones, you would easily figure out which one is Sauvage. If you can imagine classic men’s fragrance with a tiny bit of wilderness in it, that’s what Dior Sauvage smells like.

Notes used in the creation of this fragrance are commonly seen in men’s fragrances but a different blend in them gives Sauvage a recognizable scent. Those would be:
Top notes:

  • Pepper
  • Calabrian Bergamot
Heart notes:
  • Geranium
  • Lavander
  • Vetiver
  • Patchouli
  • Sichuan pepper
  • Pink pepper
  • Elemi
Base notes:
  • Labdanum
  • Cedar
  • Ambroxan

When you spray it you can immediately smell the pepper. It’s so strong, that I have a feeling that molecules of the pepper are just buzzing through the air in all directions like they are radioactive!

You can smell a little bit of bergamot, but there is no real bergamot in the notes — it’s aroma chemical manipulated to smell like bergamot.
That is perfectly fine since fragrance houses often use these because they are cheaper and can make the fragrance more affordable. Also, aroma chemicals are used when perfumers need a certain note to have different performances – in this case, real bergamot is a more soft citrusy note that’s not going to give you that smash through the air that the perfumer wants you to feel, so they replaced real bergamot with aroma chemical.

As it dries down, it becomes drier, where you start to feel pepper combined with lavender, but these notes were combined so well that you start smelling that there’s something sweet from the background combined with other notes even though in reality these notes are not sweet.

Right after the heart of the fragrances reaches its peak and starts slowly declining towards the base, Sauvage becomes dry, still pepper dominant, woody (with a bit of tobacco note I’d say) compliment getter that’s gonna last for hours on your skin.

How Long Does Dior Sauvage Last?

Dior Sauvage lasts for 10-12 hours, being ultra-potent and projecting for the first 4-6 hours, depending on your skin.

Sillage is also ultra-strong, and the scent will definitely stay in the air after you.
It’s an absolute beast in terms of longevity and it also has loads of projection, projection even 4-5 feet around you constantly. If you want everyone to smell your presence when you walk into the room, then you will make no mistake doing it with Dior Sauvage.

Longevity always played a huge role in making this fragrance best seller and it’s definitely one of the reasons why so many people like it. Saying that I’m pretty sure that Dior house won’t take anything away from Sauvage’s longevity in the future.

What’s The Difference Between Dior Sauvage EDT, EDP, Parfum, and Elixir?

In 2015 Dior released Sauvage which was EDT, meaning it had 10-20% of etheric oil and 80-90% of alcohol. 3 years later they released Eau De Parfum (EDP) version which also turned out to be an amazing fragrance, but nowhere near close to EDT. Year after that, in 2019, Dior released Sauvage Parfum, which I believe was a total miss.

The difference between Sauvage EDT, EDP, and Parfum is pretty big which changes the complete story about the fragrance.

In short, the main differences are that Dior Sauvage EDT, EDP, and Parfum don’t have the same notes, they don’t have the same performance, the price is different for all 3 of them, and some people who like EDT won’t like other versions and opposites. Those differences are big which changes the story entirely about the fragrance as they don’t smell or perform the same.
