I seem to be on a whirlwind mini course of Givenchy’s wonderful world of fragrances lately. And truth be told, I can’t seem to get enough. The last couple of days had brought us quite a bit of rain and dropping the temperature by a couple of notches, so I found myself welcoming a change to warmer scents. It was perfect timing as the latest Givenchy fragrance to launch feels like the perfect transitional scent… Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau de Toilette.
I had first become intrigued by Givenchy Dahlia Divin when my friend Sunny introduced the original EDP in her blogpost last year, and since then I’ve found myself moving away towards lighter-hearted scents. And now, I’m grateful to have encountered Givenchy Dahlia Divin EDT, because it is the perfect embodiment of a woody floral that appeals to my darker nature while still retaining a light-hearted ease.
The EDT makes use of luscious fruits such as blood orange and vineyard peach to give the fragrance a lift, without taking the commoner route of citrus for the instant zing. Instead, there is a sweet ripe fragrance that blends in with the smooth pink jasmine and rose in the heart. Sandalwood returns in this flanker, to keep the sensual woody character of Dahlia Divin. But instead of the more oriental patchouli, the EDT makes use of musky vanilla to smoothen the brew.
And in keeping with the more luminous scent, Dahlia Divin EDT is adorned with a clear crystal cap and the neck is adorned with precious rose gold threads, reflecting the rose-colored juice contained within.
I found Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau de Toilette to be a wonderfully sensual fragrance that has an elegant warm-woody base while retaining an airy ease, making this the perfect transitional scent for this Fall season. Though light-hearted in spirit, Dahlia Divin EDT has an impressive longevity, lasting 6-8 hours on me, fading uniformly throughout. It is available in 30ml, 50ml, and 75ml; and is available in stores now.
