A scentless flower garbed in dark colours. In nature, this botanical rarity develops downy petals in a dark, nearly black shade of red. In the imagination of Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of Givenchy since 2005, this naturally scentless blossom becomes ink black, onyx black, recalling black velvet or black chiffon.
The first fragrance developed under the creative direction of Riccardo Tisci, Dahlia Noir embodies a mysterious and atypical woman. There is nothing antithetical in this tension between light and shadow, between danger and delicacy, the sacred and the profane. Here it takes on a mesmerising olfactory identity, intense and powdery, floral and woody. Dahlia Noir fans the flames of desire...
Like Riccardo Tisci’s Couture creations, Dahlia Noir resonates with a fragile strength, a confluence of opposing forces, to better express the tough softness of the woman who wears it.
A Couture fragrance all in pure lines, a neo-classic whose extreme sensuality arises from a surprising twist of the imagination, a return to supreme luxury. The quintessence of the Givenchy style.
Givenchy Dahlia Noir Eau De Toilette:
Composed by François Demachy, who also created the Eau de Parfum, the Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette expresses a more luminous, fruitier vision.
Still intriguing and mysterious, yet more open, the Eau de Toilette’s trail instantly releases zesty notes of mandarin, lemon and peach. While the Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum evokes a powdery seduction, the Eau de Toilette reveals a sweet and voluptuous olfactory texture from the outset, like a fruit glistening with morning dew.
A symbol of femininity and romanticism, the rose heart remains, interlaced with woody accents. But this time, it is the rose “petal” and its freshness which are highlighted and combined with the bursting spirit of spicy pink pepper.
Lastly, carnal amber, sweet vanilla and almost mystical sandalwood enshroud the composition with skin-caressing sensuality.
In composing this Eau de Toilette, François Demachy translated the blossoming of a fleur fatale in full light. On the skin, this flower engages an intimate dialogue, like a caress infused with lightness.
