Clone Formula: Dior Eau Sauvage

First off, to be clear, this is not the modern Sauvage from Dior featuring Johnny Depp. This is the original 1966 Edmond Roudnitska masterpiece cologne: the first mass market fragrance to use the glorious power of hedione, newly discovered and captive by Firmenich at the time.

I have it in the L’origan formula and it works really well!
The only thing i worry about with this formula here is the cuminic aldehyde.

Hey everyone, I gave this formula a couple of shots and wanted to provide my notes for what I did, hope it helps! (Jamie let me know if this is too revealing of the formula and I can cut this down a bit) I initially expressed concerns to Jamie about sensitization due to the amount of bergamot oil used, as I didn’t want to give my friends something that would cause them to get rashes in the summertime. During my second attempt I said “screw it” and just used full bergamot oil. But it in the first, I created my… Read more »
