Sillage and projection are pretty soft from the start but it lingers a good while.
A heart blooms with jasmine, rose, carnation, iris root, coriander, patchouli and sandalwood.
Base notes bring us oak moss, vetiver, musk and amber. This edition was refreshed with a new advertising campaign featuring world famous Alain Delon in 2009. Of the dozens of fragrances I've smelled (including most of the popular ones), Eau Sauvage EDT is as good as any, and better than most.
This phase smells like super smooth patchouli without any dustiness. Unfortunately, this journey lasts only 4 hours on a good day, with a very weak projection after half an hour, but the scent is so amazing that I'm willing to compromise.
It really is one of the most amazing scents ever, completely timeless and I would dare say gender-less.
Anyone can compare Eau Sauvage EDT Extreme in terms of scent?
I had tried 2 times but could not decide whether it can be the answer for longevity and sillage.If I could only own one fragrance (a "signature scent"), this would be it.I would describe it as a creamy lemon luxury soap that would be found in the shower of a distinguished professional gentleman.After all, it's been on the market for over 50 years, and not without a reason.In the opening it smells like you're cutting lemons and fresh rosemary.Pafume version is totally different, I m sure, and I dislike.
