Rated 4.61 out of 5 stars
If you doubt the olfactory prowess of any of the Sauvage scents I will tell you what to do. I purchased the EDP first and while it's my favorite of the Sauvage line now. When I received my bottle I was like oh no this isn't strong enough. I even reached out to support about it. They were like ummmm… NO !! So I was like ok I'll order the Sauvage Elixir because it's supposed to be so strong and smell incredible. So I get my order of elixir and I do a spray test and yes it's much more potent but it is a scent all of its own. If you are used to EDT and move up to Elixir it's going to smell like an entirely different scent!!! I feel that the EDT has the most "grapefruit" or "citrus" top notes going on. The elixir however has a much more "mature" presence in my opinion. It's very very powerful. And back to my story of how I realized that it was me and NOT Dior Sauvage that wasn't right. This is what you do to really experience what your Sauvage purchase and other colognes in your stable smell like to other people when you wear them. So I have a 9 year old son, I'm a single father and him and I are thick as thieves lol. I love my son more then life itself. So of course I keep him looking fly 3rd grader or not!! He tells me he wants me to hit him with some cologne on his way out the door for school. So I'm like ok buddy. He says he wants to wear the one I'm always wearing. I have 5-6 different scents but the Sauvage is my current favorite. It bumped off Carolina Herrara CH men for the top spot. The OG version of that CH men was my go to for years. I loved the way it smelled on me!! Anyway so my son starts wearing Sauvage EDP to school daily. Just a couple sprays. I asked him did anyone comment that he smelled good ? He said yes Ms McCarthy ( his 3rd grade teacher and a certified smoke show hot for teacher babe also lol ). And now she has this kid smelling like what she wished he man smelled like lol. ANYWAY. I started to smell the Sauvage on my son when he got home or if we went out somewhere on the weekend. Then I stopped wearing it on myself and still putting it on him and BOOM !! It was a total epiphany!! That Sauvage smells awesome on my kid !!! He was long past smelling it on himself anymore (nose blind). But it was still going strong to other people who where in smell distance of him. This was when I realized that we go noseblind to our scents so so quickly !!! And why that one guy smells like he bathed in Versace Eros lol. And smell straight straight offensive lol. So yes I was not truly able to appreciate how the Sauvage EDP smelled until I was smelling it on someone else WITHOUT spraying it on myself. The ultimate test for the Elixir was when one day I sprayed him up w it and we were just chilling at home playing on the PS5. After an hour or so after the scent had its dry down / cool down period, I really got to experience the full scent profile of Elixir and how gauge just how much is the perfect amount to spray and where in the body. It's any incredible scent but as my Pitbull will attest to. If you spray to much that stuff will be way to strong and unpleasant!! But applied properly and responsibly people can't help but want to catch another whiff of that mysterious scent your wearing !! Elixir is something I like to wear when I go out (exceedingly rare that happens lol) or when I go to run errands especially to the market !! The single moms always comment on it. But I get just as many guys asking me what cologne I am wearing cause they know that it smells delicious !!! The EDP is better suited for workplace or being indoors. It still has that opening with the grapefruit and still smells like "Sauvage". I've also experimented with spraying the elixir on my skin after I'm dry from the shower with a non scented lotion on my skin before I get dressed. Then after that's dried I will dress and then finish with the EDP sprays on my clothes. I think it ends up bringing out the best of both worlds. I dunno, I hope my speedball fueled ramblings have helped you to understand how to better understand the scents you wear !! And remember being noseblind to a scent is a real thing and can happen quicker then you think. My last piece of advice I'll leave you with is this. If you really love to smell your fav scent on yourself. Save your cologne and spare the people around you and simply put a spray on the back of your hand!!! You can go back to it and get the full effect any time amd as many times as you like. When I do this with the elixir, I can wash my hands after it's been in there a few hours and I can STILL smell the elixir on there after drying my hands!! Do I need to wash my hands better ? No not at all. The Sauvage Elixir is really just that good!! So yeah def go get you some!!!

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

Lasts 12 hours at least on skin, and holds forever on clothing. Smooth, addictive and sexy.

The smell was overwhelming. I personally didnt like the smell at all. Made me feel sick. In fact my entire house was like whoa!! The positive thing is if you like this scent it will last for days. Even after the clothes are washed.
Zac from Ohio
This young guy sat at the bar and he smelled sooo good! I asked what he was wearing amd he said Dior Sauvage. He must have thought I was a creepy old lady since i kept sniffing him!
Jacob from wyoming
For everyone leaving negative reviews, Dior Sauvage Elixir is a great fragrance, it is extremely strong though, and should not applied more than twice, the first time I smelled it, it had a very strong alcohol opening, but beware it is a very lovely spicy and wood fragrance.
Smells sooooooo goood, definitely my favorite for him

Oh, Dior Sauvage Elixir is a game-changer! This fragrance is intense, bold, and seductive. It has a unique blend of spicy and woody notes that create a captivating scent. It's perfect for those who want to make a statement and leave a lasting impression. Definitely a must-have in any fragrance collection! Quite expensive but highly worth it. Projects like crazy, also very strong.

By far the best performance out of any fragrances I own. This is my most recent pickup and it's tied up for first place! Beautiful atomizer, and a very fun magnetic cap. It's slightly spicy off the bat and is definitely an aggressive opener that smooths out into a very smooth masculine scent. Checks off all the basics. Spicy. Woody. Sweet. Great. The bottle is a lot more expensive than the average fragrance, but if you can afford it, it's absolutely worth it!

Dior Sauvage Elixir is a captivating fragrance that builds upon the success of the original Sauvage. The elixir presents a richer and more intense interpretation, making a strong statement. The opening notes are often described as fresh and spicy, with a burst of bergamot and Sichuan pepper, creating an invigorating first impression.
As the fragrance evolves, the heart notes come into play, featuring lavender and elemi. This blend adds a layer of sophistication, balancing the initial intensity with a touch of aromatic warmth. The base notes, dominated by vanilla, tonka bean, and ambroxan, contribute to the fragrance's longevity and create a lingering, alluring trail.
One notable aspect of Sauvage Elixir is its versatility. It can be worn on various occasions, from formal events to casual outings, making it a versatile choice for those who appreciate a fragrance that seamlessly transitions throughout the day.
The performance of Sauvage Elixir is often praised, with users noting its long-lasting nature and sillage. However, as with any fragrance, individual preferences play a crucial role, and it's recommended to sample the elixir on your skin before committing to a full bottle.
In summary, Dior Sauvage Elixir is a bold and sophisticated fragrance that takes the iconic Sauvage to new heights. Its well-crafted blend of notes, versatility, and impressive performance make it a standout choice for those seeking a distinctive and long-lasting scent.

dilonap1 from undisclosed
This was meant as a gift for my boyfriend but I ended up wearing it everytime I forgot to bring my fragrances with me. It lasts up to 8months and this is not fake marketing I swear. My winter coats smelled like this even when I opened them up this winter. The ingredients are amazing an make it smell so sweet and manly at the same time.
First buy from Forth worth
I never really owned cologne, but dior changed that after i smelled the sauvage one and ots worth the price. Gonna keep buying from them in the future.
sindely from undisclosed
