It took me very long to recognize this as a rose scent. I generally have difficulty picking up rose as rose in perfumes, but this one was more like a dusty powdery scent with discernible pepper. Pretty close to the old lipstick smell that some reviews mention.

It wasn't bad, and I don't mind powdery scents, it's just that this felt like an abandoned, cluttered, dusty and …

First off: I don't think this is a scent for summer, warm weather or a warm climate - it's quite a powdery, warm scent, which I think smells cloying is such an environment. Also, I don't think this develops well in warm weather - it smells quite boring then. For me, this is definitely an autumn-scent. I would describe this as a powdery scent with a flowery-fruity base. I can't …Read more

I got this as a gift for my birthday in 2013 and I instantly fell in love with it! This is my absolute favorite perfume ever.

I would describe it as dark with a little touch of powdery sweet in it. It is strong and distinctive, but not invasive (like Kenzo Jungle) it has persistence and it evolves very nice on my skin.

Although I am deeply in love with, I find it a bit too …

To me, this has the smell of expensive make up... I love it :-)... it is a little bit of a powdery smell, but I think that makes it fresh. I love :-)

I generally like Givenchy fragrances and have been wearing them for quite some time. I don't particularly like this one, but don't hate it either. The issue was more it isn't my style. This is more of a classic, old-Hollywood, feminine, rose-y scent. Think Chanel No 5, except this fragrance is much newer. The packaging is very nice, but the product itself is a bit expensive …Read more

Why anybody would want to smell like baby powder for the price of this is beyond me. I love the packaging, the name, the colour, longevity, basically everything but the smell. Weirdly enough the baby powder smell wasnt as obvious in store but that may be due to smelling other fragrances. Supposed to be a powdery rose smell, my mum has tried every rose smell under the sun but the powdery smell …Read more

Givenchy Dahlia Noir EDP has somewhat startled me. Thrown me back into the past. A friend of mine gave me a few of her samples (as she doesn't care for powdery scents) and I've used it twice - I just ordered a large bottle.

For some reason, this scent reminds me of when I was a 10 year old little girl and my very wealthy aunt would pick me up in her brand new BMW for a day of …

Has a really old-school vibe, and I'm having flashes of Old Hollywood actresses -- esp Audrey Hepburn, because of the L'Interdit which was made for her and was quite powdery (I had it once) -- and it was also made by Givenchy.

Yes, this does have a baby powder quality in the drydown, as so many have said -- but the scent itself -- at first -- smells to me almost like black …

I have been wearing Burberry Brit Sheer exclusively for 10 years. My husband got me Dahlia Noir for xmas and I was really surprised by how much I loved it. It's strong yet mellow at the same time. I wonder if it comes in a rollerball so I can throw one in my car...

I really wanted to like this perfume. I read about this in Vogue Paris a long time ago and it really sounded like it would be a "different" and "cutting-edge" perfume. I have been on the hunt for a unique perfume for the longest time, you see. Well, it fell short in real life. It was a dusty pale rose scent which had a very powdery texture to it. It's not bad but …Read more
