Wooded depths for a large wild citrus!

With notes as fresh as its original fragrance , Eau Sauvage Extrême goes further by plunging us into a forest of Virginia cedars.

Extreme Wild Water, La Piscine and Alain Delon …

Eau Sauvage has, since its first appearance in 1966, been worn and carried away by the most emblematic male faces of its time. Appeared for decades in the guise of prints by René Gruau, the true idols of young people have ended up posing for the cult Eau Sauvage, an original fragrance that breaks with classic male standards.

Since 2009, a young Alain Delon has been chosen as a model for Eau Sauvage. The peculiarity and originality of the advertising concept hit the mark and clearly reboost the sale of Eau Sauvage thanks to this beautiful Apollon, standard of beauty and glamor of the 60s.

A subtle blend of modernity and retro trends, Alain Delon will once again seduce his audience in 2010 thanks to an advertisement featuring the historical images of his famous film La Piscine where he appears totally charming and totally manly to better offer us the new pretty version Eau Sauvage Extreme. Dior, just like with J’adore and Marilyn Monroe, no longer hesitates to play with iconic images of this bygone period to offer its timelessly elegant perfumes.

Eau Sauvage Extrême: one fragrance for two interpretations

Relatively rare fact Eau Sauvage Extrême had already existed since 1984, then built by Edmond Roudnitska, the creator of the original perfume in 1966. However, under the aegis of perfumer François Demachy, Eau Sauvage Extrême was reformulated to be sold again . in 2010. The design of the traditional Eau Sauvage bottle remains unchanged, except that for this explosive version, the square glass bottle takes on a black color to better highlight the label and the metallic and shiny cap. Once again Eau Sauvage Extrême retains its heritage while offering itself up to modernity.

Regarding the juice, Eau Sauvage Extrême retains the same freshness as its ancestor while being given a touch of powerful masculinity thanks to the woody notes which now make it switch from the olfactory family.

In top notes, Sicilian lemon offers its fresh and invigorating notes while being delicately scented. Then the heart notes will exhale lavender from Vaucluse highlighting facets rich in floral and aromatic notes but also scents of coumarin and wood. The essence of Virginia cedar will allow you to persist in a woody and deep trail while delivering a full-bodied and powerful energy that will marry wonderfully with the notes initially proposed in Eau Sauvage.

With Eau Sauvage Extrême, the beautiful aromatic citrus turns to the woody side of its strength. The cedar provided in base notes “to carry the original accord to excess and enriches it with a noble wood with enveloping accents, with a modern and assertive character, which exacerbates its masculinity. »According to Dior.

The story of “Water Sauvage ”began in 1966. At that time, it was Edmond Roudtniska who produced this fragrance, which was radically in line with current trends. With “Eau Sauvage”, men finally have the impression of having a fragrance of their own. Timeless and always acclaimed, “Wild Water” has been a magnificent success which allows it to offer variations, including “Extreme Wild Water”. Released in 2010, “Eau Sauvage Extrême” is an intense composition by François Demachy.

François Demachy, the official perfumer of Dior

Born in 1949 in Cannes, François Demachy began studying dentist and then physiotherapist. After entering a perfume school, he was hired in 1972 by Henri Robert to work for Chanel perfumes. He spent almost 30 years at the house of Chanel alongside Jacques Polge, before taking up the post of Director of olfactory development for the LVMH group. In 2006, François Demachy will become the official perfumer of the Christian Dior house. Since then, he has embodied Dior’s expertise and great creativity while respecting its core values. With a rich palette of more than six hundred raw materials, François Demachy defines himself as the director of the rare quality of the ingredients he works. In 2010, he revisited the star masculine fragrance of the Dior house with “Eau Sauvage Extrême”…

< h2> Eau Sauvage Extrême fragrance, the power of ingredients

< p> With “Extreme Wild Water”, everything is more powerful, but also deeper and fresher. Here, François Demachy wanted to bring the original ingredients to their climax and the result is dazzling… “Extreme Wild Water” begins with ultra fresh and striking notes such as Sicilian lemon and bergamot associated with aromatic notes of lavender and basil, all combined with patchouli and some fruity notes. Basil is an aromatic herb native to India. Widely used in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, basil is known to complement many culinary preparations. In perfumery, basil releases herbal, anise, spicy and slightly vinegar tones. The heart of “Extreme Wild Water” is ultra powerful and presents floral scents such as jasmine, which combines wonderfully with aromatic tones such as bay leaf, rosemary, all enhanced by coriander. The base is both full-bodied and virile and combines patchouli, Virginia cedar, musks and oak moss. The precious nectar is of course contained in the iconic and ultra elegant bottle of “Wild Water”.

< p> In 2010, François Demachy presented the variation of one of the most legendary fragrances of the Dior house, namely “ Wild Water”. “Intense Wild Water” takes the ingredients of its elder, but offers them to us in a more intense and manly way. The choice of raw materials is particularly successful and the result a joy for fans of “Wild Water”.
