EAU SAUVAGE BY François DEMACHY
Upon its creation in 1966, Eau Sauvage overturned the codes with its breakaway signature. For the first time, a floral note, that of Hedione, was used in a masculine scent. This bold choice was to become the signature stamp of Dior men's perfumes.
Since 2011, Eau Sauvage has used Bergamot from San Carlo for its captivating and seductive subtle freshness. This exceptional quality early Bergamot is cultivated exclusively for Eau Sauvage in a garden in Calabria. There it enjoys prolonged exposure to the sun, and benefits from the warm wind of the Sirocco. Harvested using traditional know-how, its extraction technique also requires special know-how.
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.
Eau Sauvage Parfum is ennobled by the deep and daring color of the fragrance – a powerful, mysterious green. The bottle also displays a black, finely carved belt, whose elegance recalls that of a tuxedo.
