All about men fragrances / Christian Dior / Eau sauvage

Fragrance for men - Eau de toilette
House: Christian Dior
Designer: Edmond Roudnitska
Launched in: 1966
Olfactory group: Aromatic hespéridé

A now-legendary revolution, Eau Sauvage transcends time, infused with modernity. Refined and powerful, sophisticated and fresh, Eau Sauvage sharpens the nuances of a fascinating masculinity and enhances a solar signature.

The name of the fragrance is reputedly the result of a late arrival by Christian Dior's friend Percy Savage to Dior's home.

Dior had asked Savage to help find a name for a perfume for men. When Savage arrived, he was announced by Dior's butler as "Monsieur Sauvage"; the designer decided that "Oh, Sauvage" would be a fitting name, and the rest is history.

The notes

Since 2011, Eau Sauvage has basked in bergamot from San Carlo with a captivating and seductive subtle freshness.

Selected by François Demachy for its floral, fruity and zesty quality, it is the fruit of a partnership in Reggio Calabria, where it enjoys prolonged exposure to the sun and benefits from the warm Sirocco winds. Through this exclusive partnership with Dior, the entire production is devoted to forging the Eau Sauvage signature.
