However, let me admit that even if I am holding the fake Box in my hand I won’t be able to label it as fake unless I have the pictorial reference for knowing the differences. The only advice here is that once you hold the box and you have the slightest of the doubt then do not buy it.

Inside the Dior’s Box

Weight of fake Dior Sauvage is 302 grams vs the real one which is 320 grams

The weight of an original Sauvage Elixir with the box packaging is 322 g whereas the fake is 302 g. Whereas, the weight of the perfume bottle without the box packaging is 221 g for the original and 210 g for the fake. The weight of the bottle’s cap is 32 g of original and 25 g of fake.

Sauvage Elixir Bottle Differences

Moreover, the finishing on Real Bottle is very premium and there are no flaws, however, the fake bottle finishing is easier to spot as refinements are missing. Give a close look at the side bumps which are not very refined in the case of fake Dior Sauvage Elixir vs the original.

Also, the writing on the real bottle is very crisp and a little small.

Cap Differences of Real vs Fake Dior Sauvage Elixir

The most prominent difference between the fake and real Dior Sauvage Elixir is the cap of the perfume.

Firstly the size of the fake cap is bigger than the real one. Not only in height but also in diameter. Secondly, the snugness of the real bottle is more and holds the weight of the bottle even if you give slight jerks while holding the cap.

The logo on the cap in case of authenticated bottle of Sauvage Elixir is aligned with the writings on the bottle front

Then the CD logo on the cap aligns perfectly with the Sauvage logo on the bottle. The half-magnetic snugness on the cap and bottle ensures that the writings and logo would align no matter how you put the cap back onto the bottle. This is not the case with fake Dior Sauvage Elixir.
