Givenchy Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette : Perfume Reviews
Bois de Jasmin

Excerpt: Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum turns out to be a chypre based on rose, iris, and patchouli. With a big citrus opening, it isn’t terribly dark, though. Instead, it is intensely powdery, with the powder intended to describe the “femme fatale” allure of the marketing copy. To me though, the drydown of iris and vanilla is too strong on baby-powder. In its heightened use of this iris and vanilla, Dahlia Noir is somewhat similar to Guerlain L’Instant Magic .
