Christian Dior, creators of the undisputed blue king, are giving customers a chance to customize newly purchased bottles of Sauvage with eco-friendly parts. Like it or hate, Dior Sauvage is the pinnacle of blue fragrances at the moment. It has seen many iterations, with Elixir being the houses’ most recent take.
Now, customers and Sauvage fans have been bestowed the same treatment that one may receive at a niche brick-and-mortar or when purchasing any private line fragrance. Caps can be engraved with many different sayings, phrases, or abbreviations, with Dior hoping that fans will leave a “personal mark on a timeless object.”
Mentioned above was that the bottles are now available with eco-friendly parts. Specifically, customers can now select from one of two African woods to sit atop their atomizers.
Congolese Ebony is renowned for its slow growth and resistance. It is a complex medium to work with, although the results are outstanding. The wood is also reputed for being the darkest natural wood in existence.
Cameroonian Wenge is a scarce precious wood with attractive characteristics to boot. Its dark traits are enhanced by a tinge of red, encapsulating Sauvage’s intensity.
Each of these caps is added as a “crowning touch to the iconic bottle.” They both bear the house’s emblematic signature utilizing sculpted gadroons and silver metal initials that have been placed by hand.
The trend of eco-friendly perfumery has been up and up in recent times. Houses have been attempting to produce fragrances in ways that are more suited to preserving our earth and towards a healthier future.
Issey Miyake has done a similar remodelling of a fan favourite by bottling the scent in repurposed glass. Polo Ralph Lauren has done a comparable duty with their latest release of Polo Blue Parfum. The fragrance featured an Oakwood note which was “upcycled.”
Christian Dior offers a point of sale map on their official website. On this map, viewers can find locations near them that offer the bottle in its new packaging. It appears that many local boutiques will be receiving the new Sauvage treatment.
