The Sauvage perfume is about an attractive severity. It is like a vast blue sky over rocky mountains. According to the creator, Sauvage Dior is a kind of man’s freedom manifesto.
In addition, the creator of the fragrance worked all his youth in perfumery. Therefore, Francois Demachy owns an incredible sensuality.
Actually, the composition of the fragrance is fascinating. At first, a fresh bergamot note appears. Then it transforms into notes of anise and Chinese pepper. Not surprisingly that all these notes create a bright tardness. Later, the sweet scents of lavender and nutmeg are revealed. At the end of the composition you can feel playful notes of vanilla and ambroxan.
According to the perfumer, he laid the basis for the composition of masculinity. “To create Sauvage, I used man as my starting point. A strong and unmistakable masculinity. Like the image of a man who transcends time and fashion.” Francois Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator
