Francis Kurkdjian had nothing to do with Sauvage Elixir, I believe his first day at work for Dior was last Monday.Good 'WOW'

Hunted down two bottles immediately.
I'm assuming since MFK is creative director at Dior now, it's no wonder Elixir has traits of Masculin Pluriel. To me, Elixir is a cross of Sauvage Parfum and Masculin Pluriel.
Montecristo by Masque Milano
WOW, this smells like shit.
Yeah, that's what they tell us. But it smells like Masculin Pluriel in the dry down. Wonder why.Francis Kurkdjian had nothing to do with Sauvage Elixir, I believe his first day at work for Dior was last Monday.
Funny I felt the same way about Montecristo for a long time, but now I own & love it!
Couldn't have said it better myself. You really do get the smell of an orange rotting in the mud after rain. Yet, it's still a clean smell. To me, the EDT and the Parfum are very similar, but I prefer the Parfum because it's woodiness give it a more mature vibe that makes it a little more versatile for evening/cooler weather wear. It's really a special scent and probably my favorite citrus ever.Terre d Hermes - One regret I have had is selling the Edt version and buying the Parfum version. Now I like both but the edt has that uplifting citrus, orange cedar thing going on that I like. This is what I get from the Edt:
"Imagine a orange grove in Tuscany full of tilled earth and greenery. As you look up into the sky you notice a storm is gathering. The winds pick up and clouds roll in and the smell is a sweet, pungent zing in your nostrils. That's the sharp, fresh aroma of ozone."
It has a certain magic to my nose which I don't get in the Parfum version which intensifies the orange and grapefruit accord. It's as if terre d hermes edt has grown up and lost it's wonderlust and settled down into the Parfum version.
I had a old sample of the Edt which I used again and it's made me buy a bottle of the Edt. So its a wow and love for the Edt and a like for the parfum version.
I've been meaning to try this one. Bloomingdales should have it available. I think I'll stop by and check today.Bulgari Le Gemme Empyr is the latest I've tried. I was lucky enough to snag a free sample. I love the sandalwood in this. Now I'm on the hunt for more sandalwood fragrances if anyone can provide any!
