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

This is a strong fragrance, very masculine but it also kind of reminds me of and old man cologne, that's why I don't love it. I gave this sample to my boyfriend (27 years old) and he didn't love it either. Overall I think is a nice scent but there's better alternatives.
earthy and heart warming
crystalwyn from undisclosed
I am very picky with the type of cologne my boyfriend wears. Being together for almost 7 years, I literally have hated all his cologne choices except for one. I am happy to add this on the very short list of approved colognes. It's not over powering in any way and smells earthy, which is my preference. It's not as long lasting, but I don't mind that at all.

This new Savage Elixir by Dior was launched in 2021. Top notes are Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Grapefruit; middle note is Lavender; base notes are Sandlewood, and Amber. Overall this is a very masculine scent. The perfect gift for your significant other!
Love this on my man!

I had my hubby try Dior Sauvage Elixir complimentary from @Dior & @Influenster in exchange for our honest review. I loved the manly, yet fresh scent of the elixir with the key notes being citrus, wood, and spice; which is perfect for fall! He likes it as well so we both are enjoying it and will probably get another bottle when this one runs out! So glad we were able to try it! #Dior #DiorSauvageElixir #Influenster #complimentary #NewScent #Elixir #Fragrance #FragranceForMen #Sephora #DiorVoxBox #InfluensterVoxBox #VoxBox

I gave this to my boyfriend to try and yes it smells ok but not our cup of tea. Don't get me wrong it's a really nice fragrance I just felt like it was missing something but I couldn't put my finger in it. This will not be a future purchase.

Dior can do no wrong with colognes! Sauvage Elixir has a great formula - not overpowering but long lasting. The notes of wood citrus and spice are spot on and mesh well together. Overall it's great and I highly recommend it!
hint of fragrance
jmb621 from undisclosed
I gave this to my husband to try. He never wears cologne and is therefore really picky. I loved Miss Dior and was anxious to hear his thoughts. And he thought it was great! A very subtle scent. Not overpowering. If he needed cologne for an occasion this is one he's happily wear.
Addicting to smell
catheeyn from undisclosed
It smells so expensive. Really good and not too overpowering. The first whiff, you can smell the woody musk. The more you smell it, you get hints of vanilla or something much sweeter almost which stops it from being TOO much. This is great for an event or date!
bellav11 from undisclosed
My bf liked it he also already had the original. Smells similar. It gives me a headache easily though. Disappointed that they didn't do anything really new.
wow wow wow
shaiannes from undisclosed
Wow wow wow! This is my boyfriends new favorite cologne, he never wants to use anything else. Everyone at his job was also very impressed with his cologne and would always ask, "are you wearing your Johnny Depp juice today?" And tell other people to smell him. We're beyond impressed and have already purchased a bottle! Thank you Influenster and Dior for such a great product to try!

I can definitely say this is my husband's new favorite. He is a perfume snob but is soon as I gave him this one, she put it as top one in his collection.￼ And I really love it on him. He smells incredibly sexy and the perfume lasts all day. I'm definitely ordering a bigger bottle.￼
Super Long Lasting
jewelr1 from undisclosed
I had my fiancé try this out. It goes on strong, but I like that it's a warm yet surprisingly fresh scent. With its notes of Bergamot, Amberwood, and Pepper, it is slightly musky, so keep this in mind. What's crazy is he sprayed it on a shirt on a Tuesday and it still smelled good on Saturday (noticed when doing laundry). He said, "Bump this up on the list." There you go!
Love the smell
christinaa61 from undisclosed
My husband got the sample of this and let me tell you, you smells so good!! It is long lasting and has a very discreet scent. He wore it mostly for evening time when we go out on dates. Since it was travel size he took it for our trip and a little went a long way.
Masculine and intoxicating
jencz from undisclosed
I gave this cologne for my husband to try. The notes of citrus, wood and spice blend together amazingly, giving off a very masculine and sexy scent that is absolutely intoxicating.
Not our style
michaelah2 from undisclosed
My hubby is very picky with his colognes and there is not so many out there he likes. There is nothing wrong with this cologne, it is just about our personal preferences. This fragrance is very heavy and strong. I don't see this fragrance as daily more like for special occasions. Definitely not summer/hot days choice. It is very manly and full of spices/wood. It lasts all day long. When I was smelling my husband's wrist I touched it with my nose and let me tell you, it ain't going nowhere. To me, as a woman, it is not a cologne I'd love on my man, like Carolina Herrera 212 or Hermes, but I can tell it is an expensive cologne. My hubby simply didn't like it at all, he found it to be "annoying" and that's all he said. #dior

This cologne has a distinct smell that makes your man stand out in a good way. I felt that it was a fresh scent and it lasted awhile. It had darker notes to it. I enjoyed it.
smells amazing on my boyfriend
allien1 from undisclosed
Honestly, I would wear this because I love it so much. But it smells even better on my boyfriend and he really enjoyed it! It lasts a long time, and you only need a little for a big impact! I would recommend this for men!
cessinag from undisclosed
I loved this fragrance ! My Boyfriend loves it. It's masculine but also has a hint of softness to it. A great everyday fragrance ! I can't stop smiling him! I highly recommend this !! You'll love it!
sexy and masculine scent
itslenatiime from undisclosed
It was a very sexy and masculine scent. Long lasting and it wasn't too over powering
Miss T from Columbus OH
The scent is wonderful. Purchased as a bday gift for a man who is so picky. However, he loved this! The scent lasts all day, exposing new scent notes throughout the day. Very nice.
Very Sexy Cologne
kimberlyaj from undisclosed
This is probably the sexiest smelling cologne I have ever smelled! It's super expensive but definitely worth the price. You only need a small amount and it lasts all day without needing to reapply. My guy has now purchased the full size bottle.
dalr1 from undisclosed
This is a solid cologne, a good smell but didn't blow my or my boyfriend's mind. Especially as he's currently using Dior's Homme - he thinks Homme has much better scent and staying power.
Great gift for bf/partner!
tammanas from undisclosed
My husband loves this scent, it's long lasting. I find the scent sexy, it's fresh and intense at the same time.
Going to have to get a full size!
ashlis418b from undisclosed
My husband tested this out and we both loved it! He smelled so good the notes all played well with each other the wood, citrus and spices just blended into this wonderful masculine scent that wasn't over powering or too light.
jessicap466 from undisclosed
My husband doesn't seem to care much about cologne, so wasn't very excited when I gave him this. That changed when he tried it on and smelled it! This won him over! He says it makes him feel confident and he loves the smell. I like the scent too!
