Reggio bergamot, Sichuan pepper, ambroxan
ABOUT THE FRAGRANCE:
A radically fresh composition, dictated by a name that has the ring of a manifesto. That was the way François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, wanted it: raw and noble all at once. Natural ingredients, selected with care, prevail in excessive doses. Radiant top notes burst with the juicy freshness of Reggio di Calabria Bergamot. Ambroxan, derived from precious ambergris, unleashes a powerfully woody trail. Sauvage is an act of creation inspired by wide-open spaces. A blue sky sprawled above a rocky landscape, white-hot beneath the desert sun.
TOP NOTE: Reggio Bergamot
For the House of Dior, François Demachy chose an exclusive Bergamot that he shaped with local producers to obtain a "custom" signature. His Bergamot is like a whirlwind of juicy freshness that sweeps everything up in its path. Drenched in the Calabrian sun, it is fruitier and develops unique, zesty facets with a tinge of pepper.
MIDDLE NOTE: Sichuan Pepper
Sichuan Pepper is the finest in the world, releasing a spicy vibration with lemony and slightly camphoric accents.
BASE NOTE: Ambroxan
An ingredient of natural origin derived from the very precious ambergris, it unfurls its marine woody notes, as vivifying as the ocean spray. With the subtle attraction of sun-bleached driftwood, it plays and lingers, like tobacco-imbued background music that never fades. And leaves a distinguished trail.
