Dolce & Gabbana's latest fragrance film for its Dolce Rosa Excelsa perfume…
Christian Dior’s Eau Sauvage cologne is, for fragrance lovers, as iconic as the fashion master’s wasp-waisted New Look.
Ever since the scent was first mixed by perfumer Edmond Roudnitska in 1966, the toilette has embodied elegant simplicity. Fresh citrus and vetiver, a hit of jasmine, and oakmoss for warmth, are its hallmarks.
Take a moment to watch the legendary flick of that era, “La Piscine” by Jacques Deray, and you see the essence of the sun-drenched chic evoked by the masculine toilette.
Sauvage is also rumoured to have enjoyed a significant celebrity fan base, ranging from the iconic Steve McQueen to today’s supermodel Claudia Schiffer.
This season, 46 years later, the brand offers a new interpretation of the classic for the next generation. And it is a modern interpretation. Eau Sauvage perfume is a moodier spritz than its predecessor, combining myrrh, vetiver and a particular Calabrian bergamot grown exclusively for the brand.
It is darker and sexier yes, yet still a classic, appealing to those men (and women too) who have long loved the Eau Sauvage original but are keen to mix it up.
The original Eau Sauvage EDT retails for $88CAD (100 ml), www.dior.com.
