A sensual and magnetic amber citrus
For 2012, François Demachy has created Eau Sauvage Parfum, the new chapter in this legendary story. With the same timeless chic, and same degree of evidence, this great classic has, for the first time, dared to appear in the noblest of concentrations: Eau de Parfum, for black tie charm. This new composition emerges as a nocturnal signature fragrance with a pronounced citrus, woody and amber scent. Mysterious and sensual Myrrh combines with the virile potency of Haitian Vetiver to clothe the emblematic accord of Eau Sauvage.
It has new intensity, both deep and magnetic. The height of masculine sophistication.
CALABRIAN BERGAMOT ESSENCE
Harvested in Southern Italy, bergamot essence is extracted by cold-pressing the peel of the fruit. It gives fragrances a distinct, sweet freshness, and adds particular vibrancy to citrus notes.
Native to India and Indonesia, but also found in Haiti and Reunion, vetiver is a perennial plant whose fragrant substances are contained in its roots. The essential oil is obtained through steam distillation. The lingering scent of vetiver is used in woody, chypre and oriental compositions. Vetiver offers its refined boldness as the base note of Dior Homme.
SOMALIAN MYRRH ESSENCE
The history of Somalian myrrh is as ancient as that of frankincense, and dates back over 3,700 years. Gathered from the Myrrh tree, from which it is naturally released, this resinous gum is then distilled into a thick, orange-coloured essential oil. Similar to opoponax, it is often used in oriental fragrances, to which it adds a sweet, slightly woody and balsamic note.
