Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’eau EDT

Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir has captured a ray of sunlight and evolved into a brighter, lighter version!

Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’eau is clear, subtle and sensual without being overly seductive and is a perfect scent for summer!

The bottle is simple and is the same shape as the Eau de Parfum, except that the cap is white, which looks fresh and clean against the pale green tint of the fragrance.

I don’t think I’ve ever sniffed the original Givenchy Dahlia Noir, but boy-I DO enjoy this Eau de Toilette! It starts off very fresh and brightly green with citron and neroli. On me it’s quite green and not very citrusy at all which I like. It stays green as the heart notes of rose petals and peonies make their way, and they give sophistication to the scent yet a very modern and young edge at the same time. As the green notes fade, I can detect a faint hint of patchouli, that gives way to a faint spicy cedar and musk. Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’eau is a fresh and lovely rose fragrance that’s very clean smelling and perfect for warmer weather. If you love rose fragrances, then I highly recommend giving Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’eau a try! I like this so much better than Jo Malone’s Red Roses.

  • Hey Tracy, I got to sniff this a while ago and I do like it! I love roses so maybe that’s why! It’s also quite fresh too. Great for summer!

  • I got a sample and I like it a lot, not a scent I would go for but yay to perfume samples 😀 I think I will purchase this one, it’s such a nice scent for warmer months xxx

  • Eugenia

    Gotta love that Tiffany Blue sneaker photobombing the shot, lol! I usually prefer warmer vanilla/amber tones, but for summer I do like to change things up with something lighter. Think I’ll give this a sniff next time I’m at the Givenchy counter, Lil Sis!

  • Icaria

    Citrons? Roses? I will definitely try to sample this! Great summer combination.

  • ROSE? YES I am going to try this.

  • Elizabeth Clark

    Bvlgari Rose Essentielle is my favorite rose fragrance, but I will have to try this one!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Let me know what you think!

  • I think I overdosed on roses a while ago and now they make me kind of o_O. I’m gonna give it some time, lol. But I like how fresh this looks and sounds!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      It’s greener so not so “old” smelling. It’s nice for summer!

  • I thought I loved Jo Malone’s Red Roses but after a couple of hours it turns rancid on me!? Will check this out soon cause I’m on the hunt for the perfect rose fragrance!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Try this one! It’s more green and soft on the rose part but it’s there! Let me know what you think of it.

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    I hope you like it! Let me know what you think!

    I don’t know what the original Dhalia Noir smells like either, but it’s kind of funny that they took a dark name like that and watered it down literally to a “L’eau.” I might give it a sniff next time I see it though. When I first went on a hunt for a “signature fragrance” (which was an utter fail), I settled on Givenchy Very Irresistible, mostly because of Liv Tyler. That was the last time I was big on Givenchy.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I guess they just wanted fans of the fragrance to wear it in the summer too because the original must be a bit heavy for summer. That’s what I’m thinking.
      I used to have a signature fragrance, and even bought it again when it became available, but now it’s not floating my boat anymore. My nose has changed!

  • Ooh, this hasn’t reached our shores yet. I’ll have to tell my sister, as she wears Dahlia Noir.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yes! She might like this softer version for summer then.

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    It’s pretty!

  • Toya

    I’m such a one-note wonder when it comes to fragrance…give me something will vanilla and I’m all over it. Anything else – meh. I want to break out of that same old though Tracy – help meeeeeeeee! 😛

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha you need to start sniffing and see what else your nose likes!

  • I’m on a fragrance kick, I’ll definitely check this out.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I hope you like it! It’s really fresh!
