The timeless chic of a great men's fragrance classic.
The Eau Sauvage saga
Born from a desire for renewal, Eau Sauvage burst onto the scene in 1966, shifting everything in its wake. Unexpected and unprecedented, Eau Sauvage mirrors the changes the young were living at the time. Young people bubbling with life, seeking a new truth.
Since then, Eau Sauvage has gained an enviable status as a great classic. Its boldness has turned into an absolute reference. It has held its appeal from generation to generation, with impressive consistency. Today it wants to go further still. To surprise the youth of today in their fast-paced race to reinvent themselves
Alain Delon, cheeky and charming
An irresistible hipster before his time, Alain Delon’s wild beauty strikes again. It is 1966 and Robert Enrico is shooting The Last Adventure. Unsurprisingly, the very same year Eau Sauvage shifts the standards of male fragrances.
Alain Delon fills the screen to music by Black Strobe. A timeless legend with cheeky charm, he grabs and hypnotises the frame.
Alain Delon and Eau Sauvage, the saga of a modernity that thrives on eternity.
With Eau Sauvage Cologne I tried to keep the apparent simplicity of this construction. A clarity that actually hides nuances and details, darkness and light.
François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator
EAU SAUVAGE BY François DEMACHY
The creation of Eau Sauvage shook the world of perfumery with a radical new signature: for the first time, a floral note, Hedion, was given a masculine interpretation. A bold choice that would soon become the mark of Dior men's fragrances.
Since 2011, Eau Sauvage has basked in Bergamot from San Carlo with a captivating and seductive subtle freshness. This early Bergamot of a remarkable quality is cultivated exclusively for Eau Sauvage in a garden in Calabria where it enjoys prolonged exposure to the sun and benefits from the warm Sirocco winds. Traditional methods are used to harvest the fruit, and its extraction also requires special expertise.
To describe Eau Sauvage, I would quite simply give Mr. Dior's definition of elegance, which was "a balance of simplicity, attention, natural and distinction."
The bottle designed by Pierre Camin in 1966 has not changed since its creation—something unheard of in the perfume world. The bottle is inspired by a flask, the men's accessory par excellence, a timeless luxury item. As the fragrance of a couturier, the cap takes the shape of Mr. Dior’s thimble, while the folds of glass recall the lines of draped fabric.
