New Product Spotlight: Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum, 2.5 oz., $114, online only from Sephora. Also available in 1 oz. for $68 and 1.7 oz. for $94.


I love this scent. I originally owned Givenchy’s classic Dahlia Divin, but was on the fence. When I saw that this came out, I knew I had to try it and I am so glad I did. In fact, I purchased the 1 oz. bottle but exchanged it for the full size 2.5 oz.bottle. describes this fragrance as:

Notes: Mimosa, Sambac Jasmine, Rose, Tonka Bean.

Style: Fun. Bright. Happy.

I feel like the description does it no justice. Reading that, I would think “meh”, but this scent is far from “meh”. It’s warm and bright at the same time, a little sweet but still elegant, and floral but also deep. I highly recommend you give it a try, especially if you’ve tried the original. More people need to give Givenchy fragrance some love.

Beauty Award: Favorite Fragrances

All-Time Favorite Perfume: ‘Flowerbomb’ by Viktor & Rolf 3.4 fl oz, $165.

‘Flowerbomb’ has to be my all time favorite scent! It smells sooo good and pleasantly girly and slightly sweet but still sophisticated (it doesn’t smell like that teeny-bopper sweet stuff at all)! The official notes that are listed are: bergamot, tea, freesia, jasmine, orange blossom, orchid, rose, patchouli. It’s perfect for date night, special occasions and if it wasn’t so expensive I would wear it everyday. It really is my most coveted perfume I own.

Second Favorite Scent: ‘Fame’ by Lady Gaga.

Honestly, I don’t know what happened and why it can be barely found in stores anymore but I love this scent. I wear it almost everyday because it’s cost friendly enough to do so and smells incredible. I get compliments that I “always smells so good”. You can find it for about $25 for 3.4 fl oz online now. It’s great for everyday, date nights, etc… The official notes that are described are: a blend of belladonna, incense, apricot, honey drops, orchid, jasmin. I suggest you order it and try, and return it if it’s not your fav. But I think you’ll like it.

Favorite Scent of the Month: Joie “Folle de Joie” Eau de Parfum, 3.4 fl oz, $98.

This one just arrived in my November Birchbox but I love it already and considering purchasing the full size. It’s very pretty and flowery but classy and light and strong all at the same time. I highly suggest popping into your local Nordstrom and giving this a whiff if you don’t like ordering perfumes online. It’s notes are described as: sweet citrus, woodsy florals, cognac, jasmine, rose, spicy wood, leather.
