Modern Masculinity | Christian Dior’s Sauvage

Created by Dior perfumer François Demachy, Sauvage is one of the best selling fragrances in the world. Inspired by raw natural elements and wild spaces, the fragrance combines specially produced notes of spice, citrus and wood, to create a uniquely powerful and evocative masculine scent.

Describing Sauvage, François Demachy says, “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.”

Let’s take you through some of our favourite Dior’s Sauvage products.

Sauvage Parfum

The original Sauvage, Dior’s Sauvage Parfum combines notes of warm Sri Lankan sandalwood and spiced Mandarin to create a balance of fire and freshness. The sandalwood is sourced from a Sri Lankan plantation that uses special farming practices and its rich natural soil to produce the rich nuances found in the scent. Created as an ode to nature, Dior perfumer, François Demachy purposely draws upon the beauty of the fragrance’s raw materials.

For Sauvage Parfum, I imagined the impact when intense freshness meets the smooth depth of an oriental. I maintained the powerful soul of Sauvage by giving it nocturnal accents, an animal attraction and rounder facets,” Demachy explains.

With the highest scent intensity, Sauvage Parfum is the perfect Sauvage product for a special occasion.

Sauvage Eau de Parfum

The Eau de Parfum offers a slightly softer version of the beloved Sauvage Parfum scent. Drawing inspiration from the desert at twilight, the Eau de Parfum evokes the magical combination of coolness and heat that’s found in the desert air. Mixing notes of Bergamot, Indonesian nutmeg, Sichuan pepper and pink berries with the amber woody trail of Ambroxan and vanilla absolute, the fragrance offers a fresh and suave fragrance.

Demachy says, “When creating Sauvage Eau de Parfum, I didn’t focus on its power. Its signature is already quite identifiable. The goal was not to accentuate this or to saturate its composition,” and instead, Demachy focused on enriching the fragrance’s dominant notes to reveal new colours.

Sauvage Eau de Toilette

The Eau de Toilette is the gentlest scent in Dior’s Sauvage fragrance collection. Working with local Bergamot producers, Demachy was able to create his own custom Bergamot scent. Using his exclusive Reggio Bergamot, the fragrance offers a peppery citrus zest with a noticeably fresh composition. Combined with the raw sophistication of an ambery wood trail, Dior’s Sauvage Eau de Toilette is ideal to use as an invigorating everyday fragrance.
