François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, drew inspiration from unspoiled expanses of wilderness beneath a blue-tinged night sky, as the intense aromas of a crackling fire rise into the air.
The fragrance of a new frontier: an interpretation with an enriched, heady trail that celebrates the magic of wide-open spaces. "Sauvage is an endless score. Its incredibly dense composition is shaped with subtle nuances to create unique flashes of light.
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." François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator The powerful aromatic freshness of Sauvage Parfum is illuminated by the sizzle of a plump, spicy Mandarin. Heady swirls of luscious Tonka Bean with leathery and bitter aromas are enlaced in a trail dominated by precious Sri Lanka Sandalwood.
Sourced from a Sri Lanka plantation that has worked with Dior for over 10 years, the Sandalwood in Sauvage Parfum boasts rich nuances and exceptional qualities derived from special farming practices.
A difficult plant to cultivate, it is supervised during the early stages of growth and then 'released' into a totally wild plantation where nature takes its course.
In this harsh, natural environment with no human intervention, each tree pursues its growth, battling to spread its branches and thrive, sometimes reaching 100 years of age and growing over 12 meters tall! This is what creates the unique olfactory qualities of the rare, powerful and rich Sandalwood essence of Sauvage.
