Christian Dior Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir

“Wild Water Fresh Leather”

This review is tough for me.
I realize the Eau Sauvage lineage is filled with much history, but I think sometimes history is best left in the past.

This scent opens up with a ripe, musty lemon note. I dont see oakmoss in this note breakdown but I certainly smell its musty presence.
To me this smells like an old lemon, warm, thats been sitting in a trash can for about a week. Moldy.
The amber note peaks through with an odd softness to go with the ripe, sharp lemon note. Very odd. Disjointed.
The leather is there, similar to Bel Ami Vetiver’s but its very faint and hard to distinguish behind the amber layering.
Dry, sandy leather, but its not the highlight note as promised.

I dont get a cedar or woody note in this at all.

The best way I can describe this one is “Nursing Home Bathroom”.
Someone hasnt bathed in a long time, they wore a stinky leather jacket with wet velvet jumpsuit underneath and they covered it up with moldy lemon.

Ripe and weird at the same time.

Im going to keep this review a short one. This scent taught me a lesson on blind buying.
Dont do it unless you’re absolutely sure you know what you’re getting into.
I saw a lot of love for this one on Fragrantica, and im not sure why.

A waste. Even at the $62 I paid for 3.4oz, I cant see this being worth even 1/4 of that.
AARP card required. Who wants to smell like this?

Some fragrances shouldnt leave the lab, this one of them. Luckily its over before you know it.
What was Demachy thinking?
