Citrus under a sweet start, is not strong; All their spices are too subtle, just as their floral notes are barely noticeable. There is nothing "wild", it is a safe and good bet but nothing spectacular, moderate stela and longevity.
Bold and masculine
by James on Aug 3, 2017
Bold and masculine yet fresh and a small hint of fruit.One of my go to scents.
by JASON on Jul 21, 2017
I am a middle aged traditional guy, so if you are more of a GQ reader with dozens of colognes around your sink, skip this! Sauvage smells good, but it isn't my favorite because it doesn't make me want to keep on smelling it. To me it just says "department store cologne". It is kind of spicy or oriental in my nose, which maybe isn't my preferred sensation; I prefer leather, wood, grass, outdoors, ocean, barbershop smells. My wife says it smells like the cologne counter and I think that's a good summary.

I can't seem to love it or hate it. All I know is the 3 ml sample hasn't finished and I've had it for a few months. It's just not something I reach for when there are countless others that I fully enjoy. Performance is average on me.
Best and worst of all worlds
by Justin on May 19, 2017
I can understand the hate for this one. Offensively strong opening, cools to something pretty unimpressive. It's like they took all the popular men's scents of the last 10 years and mixed them together to create a frankenscent monster
Loved by many for a reason
by Kyle on May 18, 2017
This is certainly not my favorite fragrance, but I definitely understand why so many people seem to love it. It smells really nice, very fresh and somewhat intoxicating. It will definitely get you compliments.
by Ando on May 18, 2017
This scent is very popular but frankly it's not one I'm very impressed with. It's a really clear mix of just ambroxan, bergamot, & pepper. Some folks will love that. Some are less interested. This scent is very peppery and on my skin it just stands out too much. Try it for sure but don't over-invest.
not the best for me
by JOSEPH on May 18, 2017
This fragrance seemed a bit harsh to me, I'm not sure but one note seemed more chemical than scent.
by Christian on Apr 21, 2017
This fragrance is one of my favorites. My girls friend and other girls love this scent. I get alot of compliments! Highly recommended
Oops wrong scent
by Robert on Apr 1, 2017
My previous review I got mixed up with Eau Savage. This one is just Savage. Eau Savage, an older scent, is nasty. Savage, the newer one, is really wonderful.
by Frank on Mar 22, 2017
Fresh, good smell. Maybe a bit for a younger crowd? Has some citrus that pulls through.
7.25 / 10 for me. Good one.
by Zachary on Mar 4, 2017
Has a synthetic smell but works with the ladies
by Ruebennase on Feb 20, 2017
This is a decent fresh spicy aromatic fragrance with lots of ambroxan, but nothing more than that. Very synthetic, very generic, pretty boring. Hard to hate, but also hard to love. I tried this one in an airport shop recently and found it smelled almost exactly like the air freshener in the airport restrooms.
by Tristan on Feb 16, 2017
This fragrance is pleasing at first, but the synthetic smell everyone complains about is evident. Smells similar to cheaper colognes, not the scent for me.
You will either love it or hate it...
by Angel on Feb 16, 2017
I see why this fragrance can be polarizing. I don't love it, but I also don't hate it. There is something synthethic about it, but that same element is what makes the fragrance stand out. The top notes are nice. The dry down reminds me of one of the Mont Blanc fragrances mixed with Aventus--maybe it's the pepper. I would wear this once in a while, but not everyday. Try it and form your own opinion.
One of my favorites - hands down.
by Preston on Feb 13, 2017
Sauvage is a very sharp scent. Very fresh and very sharp. It fills the room when you spray it. I get compliments on it every single time I wear it. I hugged my Step-mom once and she said she could smell hours after I was gone. I only sprayed my neck and both shoulders. I want full size of this soon.
by Sunny Side on Jan 20, 2017
Every scent deserves a 2nd chance right? Nope. Strong. Musky. Somehow generic. Smells like a pirate. Captain Jack Sparrow. Maybe that's why they had Johnny Depp promote it.
Initially a toned down Drakkar Noir
by Stephanie on Dec 19, 2016
When I was walking through the store and saw the sexy picture of Johnny Depp advertising this cologne I had to smell it, so I sprayed it on a spray card. When I smelled this initially, it made me think of Drakkar Noir - in a good way, because it is toned down and less "in your face". It's yummy - very masculine and dries down to a very clean, fresh scent.
Great Men's Fragrance
by Bhaskar on Dec 15, 2016
A wonderful long lasting cologne. Highly recommend it.
by Jarrod on Nov 3, 2016
beastly perfomance, sillage 5-6 hours before sitting close, longevity 18-24 hrs. smells very synthetic but alluring at the same time. great compliment getter, can be harsh if smelled directly on sprayed location
by Adrian on Oct 13, 2016
Nobody liked this one. Too strong. Drakkarish.
Great dry down
by Dana on Sep 6, 2016
Starts out a little harsh, but dries down very wonderfully. Liked this a lot more than I thought I would.
so so at best
by Greg on Aug 26, 2016
a little too much like fabric softner
SO much YES!!!
by LaVonne on Aug 24, 2016
This is the most beautiful smell on the right man. Seriously, it drives me absolutely wild. My face blushes the second i catch it in the air!
Too Strong For Me
by RC on Aug 22, 2016
This scent seems to be a love or hate type of deal. I fall in the middle somewhere. On my skin it's way too overpowering and strong to the point of giving me a headache. But I don't dislike it because of the smell overall.
There seems to be too much of something in this for my liking. Pepper maybe. But whatever it is it's just beast mode on my skin and I just can't take it. If it wasn't quite so strong on me I'd enjoy it more.
WOMEN LOVE THIS
by Colin on Jul 23, 2016
This is one of my most complimented fragrances. Some people will complain because they expected it to be a new groundbreaking fragrance. Ignore the detractors and give this a try.
by Amber on Jul 12, 2016
I go crazy when I smell this. It is very manly and I wish my husband would love it as much as I do.
by Michael on Jun 27, 2016
Tried this on at the counter and couldn't stop sniffing my wrist. Very likable scent.
by Mikheil on Jun 24, 2016
Sauvage has nice scent indeed, and it does not smell cheap at all. But I think its smell is somehow generic.
If you want to wear a safe and pleasant fragrance, you should try it
by Daniel on Jun 10, 2016
This fragrance lasts ages on my skin, a linear smell, the dry down is very similar to the opening which is fantastic!
Old school speed stick deodorant smell
by Jessica on Jun 9, 2016
Yikes. Bought this as a sample for my husband. Neither of us like it. You know how smell is a powerful way to trigger memories? This one reminded me of my dads speed stick deodorant from when I was a kid. Didn't smell good then either
Waste Of Money
by RB on Jun 9, 2016
This has to be the worst, most pungent, stinky mess of a fragrance that I have ever encountered. It smells like a men's room soap and is a synthetic mess. I got this based on all of the hype. I tried it several times and once, my wife even walked into the room and said "What stinks in here!" Enough said!
by Robert on Jun 7, 2016
I see the good reviews for this, but I can't agree. Worst smelling Dior scent ever!! Buy a small sample first before a bigger bottle if you need to try it.
by Alishia on May 9, 2016
Bought this for my bf and it is very nice! Last long and very sexy. I'm a sucker for bergamot though
by Brandon on Apr 7, 2016
Strong slightly citrusy fragrance;careful not to over do though,two or three sprays is plenty;very long lasting too
nice soft scent
by Barrington on Mar 5, 2016
This is a safe blind buy.I'm enjoying this gem from start to finish will certainly buy again,a must hv in one's collection.
by Carolyn on Jan 20, 2016
The smell is not overpowering, sort of soft but manly. Glad that I got this sample before going out to get a bigger bottle of it.
by Derek on Jan 14, 2016
Wow. Definitely polarizing. Love the slightly woody dry down. Almost reminded me of adidas moves. Compared the two and they are different. Just had slightly similar top notes. Im on the fence if I want more. Might wear it again in the summer to see if season and temperature makes a difference. It is an odd thing to smell in the cold weather.
by Gregory on Jan 11, 2016
Definitely the hot scent of the moment, and no joke, everyone complimented on it. It lasted from one morning to the next!
by Christopher on Dec 16, 2015
It has great longevity and my wife thinks the scent is very sexy and masculine. It has a soft citrus and woodsy smell with just a hint of the pepper underneath. Very well done.
by Michelle on Dec 6, 2015
When I first smelled it I was underwhelmed. It had many similarities to other designer fragrances. There is a strong top fruity note that I appreciated, it's the note that sets it aside from all the others. The dry down was soft and pleasing. It's versatile. Lasts over 6 hours. I see people of all ages wearing it, more likely 25 and over.
Great fresh scent
by Jason on Nov 9, 2015
This is a very polarizing fragrance to most fragrance enthusiasts. I really enjoy this one, I don't get the pepper just a lot of bergamot and ambergris. A simple, sweet, fresh scent that just lasts all day. This is a great people pleaser that won't offend. A rather safe blind buy, but I suggest sampling any fragrance before purchasing.
