Following last year’s Dahlia Noir, in February this year, Givenchy has introduced a new essence, called Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette, in fact a flanker to last year’s edition, available this time as Eau de Parfum. With a slightly modified image (in order to be differentiated from the original perfume with this name by Givenchy) Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette exhibits a pale pink color scheme available in both the stopper and the hue of the juice, while the development team that worked on creating it was once more lead by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci.
And since more than 2 months ago I sampled (obviously assisted by my wife!) the original, arrived in the perfumery shops from my area with a major delay, a couple of weeks ago, I was testing this feminine and modern oriental floral. Luckily, my olfactory memory was not impeded by the reminiscences gathered since that day therefore I am happy to describe you my complete experience with respect to the new Givenchy perfume.
Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette opens with a dazzling and refreshing combination shaped from fruits and spices and embodied by the notes of peach (fighting for prominence at this phase!), with lemon and mandarin. Later, as the scent evolves into the mid development, the citrus-fruity facet turns floral and although I could not detect any of the employed accords (except the pepper note!) I looked later on the official listed notes and I noticed it was about floral notes (sic!) and pink pepper. This composition eventually dries down (within a couple of hours!) into a creamy and woody base, shaped from the notes of warm amber, sandalwood, cedar and sweet vanilla.
The video advertisement reprises the black and white setting from last year’s spot, having the Italian model Mariacarla Boscono as the feminine image of a perfume that’s captivating enough to deserve your attention. Overall, I’ll say that Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette will please the Givenchy fans in search of a modern oriental floral.
