Dior Sauvage Elixir Review

Men are very choosy when it comes to picking up a perfume for a date night or for their regular use. Every one of them has their choices to be fresh all day. That said, Sauvage is always known for the perfumes that keep you fresh all day and the latest one in the list is Dior Sauvage Elixir.

Cooling down all the hype, it was released on mid-2021. This perfume is surely leaps and bounds ahead of the other Sauvage perfumes based on the user reviews. If compared with EDT, you won’t find much of a difference in terms of scent but the base notes are stronger as compared to the Sauvage EDT. Let’s talk about Dior Sauvage Elixir in detail now. 


The opening of this perfume leaves a fresh spicy note on you while giving you the best feel of Dior Sauvage Elixir. Of course, the opening is not too long but it’s enough for a casual use if you’re not the one who loves long opening kind of scent. A lot of users also felt that the opening was a little stronger as compared to EDT and will prefer to spray less the next time they use Elixir. 


When you compare Elixir with EDT from Sauvage, the projection of the former is little less or you can say it’s almost none. Of course, the fact that it lasts longer doesn’t mean that the projection is more; it is way lesser than what the users expected, to be honest! However, if you spray more than needed (only if you love to), the perfume leaves a good smell to the people around you. 


While the longevity should depend on how much you spray, it usually lasts for 9 to 10 hours on average considering that it’s a darker scent as compared to the previous perfumes by Sauvage such as EDT. The heavy licorice helps the Elixir to last longer! On the skin it lasts for 8-9 hours and if sprayed on clothes, it even lasts longer, for around 13-20* hours approximately!


The versatility of Dior Sauvage Elixir can be rated as 8/10 depending on what users have experienced after spraying at least 10-15 times after purchasing it. The perfume can be definitely used in either cold or hot weather which makes it versatile besides lasting long. 

Overall Scent

It keeps you fresh while the overall scent vibrates with the notes of spices, rich woods, lavender, and grapefruit. Wondering what are the top notes, middle, and the base notes? Let’s uncover them. 

The top notes are of Grapefruit, Cardamom, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon; all give you a fresh feel when you open the perfume bottle to spray on you. The middle notes are of organic lavender adding another element to freshness and improving the overall aroma of the scent. The base notes include Licorice, Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli and Haitian Vetiver.

Overall, the scent makes you feel fresh and lasts long as compared to other brands’ perfumes that are available. 

Value for the Money!

When compared with other Sauvage perfumes and the similar perfumes of other brands, Dior Sauvage Elixir is affordable as compared to the other ones. It’s worth every penny you spend but if you’re below the age of 20, you might not like these kinds of perfumes as it’s specifically suitable for men above 25+ years of age.  It might seem like a bad suggestion, but the truth is, at every age, our senses related to perfume changes and if you are spending a few bucks on Dior Sauvage Elixir, it must be worth if you’re above the age of 25! 

Dior Sauvage Elixir sample

If you still have any doubts to clear, it’s always better to go with the sample of Dior Sauvage Elixir. It gives you a chance to analyze whether the overall scent is made for you or not. Also, it’s relatively cheaper as compared to the bigger bottles that you purchase and leave it unused if you don’t like it. So it’s always recommended to get a sample first to see if it suits your style and sense of smell and then go for the bigger one if you loved it! 

Pro Tip:

Spray the perfume on the clothes rather than skin, it will surely last longer as compared to the later! 


Based on the user ratings on various perfume related website, we would rate Dior Sauvage Elixir 8/10 for overall scent, longevity, versatility, projection, and most importantly opening. If you ask me, I loved the spicy freshness of this perfume which later settles down as the top notes come into play.
