Most Helpful Positive Review New Generation of Male Fragrance
I received this product for free from Influenster and Dior in exchange for my honest review. Sauvage elixir does not smell like the original, but it does have some of its DNA. It is an aromatic fragrance. The opening of it to me smells like every other masculine perfume, just linear, but once it dries down, it turns into something special. The citrus (grapefruit) that it has makes it smell somewhat bitter. The cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamon create this beautiful sweetness and spice. In my skin, it turns a bit into spicy maple syrup because those notes are part of the group of spices. Which I really enjoy! The vetiver and lavender allow the fragrance to have still a fresh, clean scent that will enable it to be very versatile. The main accords you will get in this fragrance are warm spicy, and woody. The patchouli is not dirty or the star of Sauvage Elixir. It just allows the overall scent to be tamed. The longevity is easily 8 hours and with a good projection. I love that Elixer is different from other male fragrances. It makes it stand out. I would gift this to my father as he also really enjoy it. He believes everything I just stated. I feel that the scent isn't mature, but it is not young either it is in the middle.

Undertone(s): Alcohol & Aftershave
Comments: Overall, I ADORED Dior's new take on their class Dior Sauvage Elixir. The major downside, there are slight undertones of alcohol and aftershave that override some of the fragrance notes. However, it is not enough to overwhelm and this has become one of my boyfriends' go-to everyday colognes as a result. I will NOT, nor will my boyfriend be purchasing this product though. The name is insensitive, so was the marketing campaign. Appropriating native culture is just wrong. Respecting those cultures would only gain more purchasers versus losing one like me. We both enjoyed this parfum, but between Johnny Depp and poor marketing, this is a miss for us. Unfortunately, because my boyfriend cannot get enough of this cologne. Essentially, this perfume has been a big hit and I would recommend this perfume for those looking for an affordable everyday luxury perfume, but not for our household. Dior Sauvage Elixir

My husband and I love the scent of this perfume, the fragrance lasted a long time and didn't wear off just in the first couple of hours.

I did like the scent of this￼. I put it all on a Saturday morning while cleaning the house just to see how long it would last. It maintained and held up through all of my daily chores and then running errands. Would definitely use again
scent was okay

I gave this to my boyfriend to test out. He said he didn't like the scent. I tested it out and the scent was not bad. The scent was familiar to me like I have smelled that before.
Not a favorite

My husband was excited to try out this scent but unfortunately we were both somewhat disappointed. There is nothing wrong with the scent, it's alright but we just didn't take too much of a liking to it. Too musky for our taste, but if you like that kind of scent Dior Sauvage Elixir is for you.

This is my husband's favorite scent, and he wears it every day. It is a lovely mix of spice and musk but it isn't too heavy or overwhelming.
raradelamarre from undisclosed
My husband was given a free sample through influencer. This is one of my favorite scent my husband wears now. It has a soft and not overpowering woody, fresh, and soapy scent. It also lasts for a full day without needing touchups. We will definitely be purchasing a bottle soon.
Not our favorite.

My husband didn't love the scent nor did he transform into Johnny Depp having a midlife crisis in the desert. It's not bad, just not for us.
caitlinf47 from undisclosed
This scent is reminiscent of many masculine perfumes: woodsy and spicy. However the lingering zesty, citrus notes underlain by rich pine makes the perfume mysterious and unique. It is long lasting but subtle when worn, which is my preference. I can't stop smelling it! The value is great for the size and quality of ingredients.

This is a great smelling cologne, my boyfriend really liked it and I liked the way it smelled it on him. It's a very rich scent, and while it has some spice notes it doesn't overpower the overall scent. In fact, i feel that it grows as a scent, if that makes sense. You smell it initially then 15 mins later you're like "wow this is a sexy scent" I will say that it is very strong. I sprayed it just to get a feel for it's scent. It lingered in my room for a whole day.
yuck! this one I feel terrible reviewing it..

Guys, I couldn't stand the smell of this. It's very old smell that just doesn't smell good at all. And it's very strong. I'm sorry it's not a good review but honestly I don't recommend this at all. It just smells disgusting. I had my husband try it out but he also said the smell is so strong it stinks. Not a fan of this one. I did receive it complimentary
intense but also intoxicating
samanthas470 from undisclosed
This has a bit of musky but sexy smell. Warning is that is is quite strong, so a little goes a long way. I feel like this scent also lasts a while which is nice since most scents tend to fade quickly. I guess that's one of the perks of the scent being so intense. The musky isn't gross or anything, I'd just say it's more of a night time wintery scent.
All of my favorite scents wrapped up into one.

I loved the key notes in this fragrance. I received it in exchange for my honest review, and I gave it to my boyfriend to test it out. It was very masculine, woodsy , musky. I love crisp fresh colognes and this one met my expectations. Dior Sauvage Eau de parfum Spray

I recently received Dior Sauvage Elixir For free an exchange for my honest review as it is a perfume geared for men I gifted it to my brother who is a working professional. He loved the overall smell, & when it came to how long it lasted it was for an all day wear
beautybydee19 from undisclosed
This cologne smells AHH-MAZING! I received a sample of this cologne in my Miss Dior Influenster box and my fiancé and I are both obsessed. I love how light this cologne is. A little bit goes a long way and lasts ALL day! My fiancé sprays some behind his ears in the morning and I can still smell it by the end of the night. I'm so happy to have received this because I was debating on what cologne to gift him for the holidays, now I know! This will make a perfect stocking stuffer!
yunya from undisclosed
It is a very spicy and mannered perfume, I liked its smell on my husband, it smells very good and lasts on skin until the next day and on clothes much longer.
jignapatel09 from undisclosed
My husband loved this product, let me just say, that was very surprising! He's usually very picky about his fragrances, but this one was a keeper! I loved the smell as well and it wasn't overbearing like all the other men colognes. He said the fragrance lasted a long time and didn't wear off just in the first couple of hours. I think it's definitely going to be a future Fran fan either purchase for us!
Not for me…or my partner
jewliew from undisclosed
I know traditionally men's scents are just more powerful and strong, but I wish this was more subtle. It was way too over powering for me or my partner and it didn't have any unique notes that would make it worth the price tag in my opinion.
loved this scent
paolap17 from undisclosed
I gave this sample to my brother and I really liked how it smelled. It's very long lasting and wonderfully masculine. A little goes a long way. I might buy a full size as a Christmas gift for him. He really enjoyed it.

My husband is very picky with cologne and he absolutely loved this sample. I loved it as well. So much I might wear it myself! The scent is long lasting too. I'm thinking of buying him the full size soon! Dior Sauvage Eau de parfum Spray

I like the smell but I that it would have a more strong smell. But other than that it's great and my boyfriend will probably wear it out for date nights! Dior Sauvage Elixir

My boyfriend loved the smell of this cologne , even I loved it , I was kind hoping it was a huge bottle but it was only a sample but that sample made me realize that I need to purchase my boyfriend the big bottle for sure !
Not my favorite, but not at all bad
jzmosa from undisclosed
Boyfriend's review mixed with my own - He (as the wearer) didn't like this scent as much as his usual scent choice. It actually smells like what I imagine Johnny Depp smells like, which might not be what 20-somethings might enjoy. I think it'd be great for a silver fox, but it wasn't our cup of tea.
jessicawinderschambe from undisclosed
This smells great. My husband also really liked the smell. It has a fresh scent with hints of musk and is not too over powering. I think it would be appropriate for all ages and would recommend it.
