Dahlia Noir By Givenchy

Givenchy unveils a fragrance inspired by black dahlia, a dark-hued and scentless imaginary flower. The mysterious and enigmatic name also echoes the title of James Ellroy’s detective story, which was made into a film. Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir possesses a floral-powdery-chypre signature that is redolent of ‘an addictive sensuality, the enigma of femininity.’ In its resolutely sleek pink-and-black bottle, Dahlia Noir expresses ‘a meeting of opposites’… the better to arouse desire, Givenchy explains.

This sweet, woodsy, powdery fragrance wasn’t composed around dahlia, as you might expect, but around three key notes: mimosa, iris and rose. Together, they help give the perfume its powdery, almost cottony character. The trail of patchouli, sandalwood and tonka bean grants the scent a more chypry character. Perfumer: Fran├žois Demachy.
