This week’s Escentual post is a review of a fragrance that took me wholely by surprise – Dahlia Noir L’Eau by Givenchy. The original Dahlia Noir made next to no impression on me whatsover (very much in line with most Givenchy offerings) and I am, as you know, not a massive fan of anything remotely green – so it is with great surprise that I give a big thumbs up to Dahlia Noir L’Eau!

This week’s stop on my Escentual A-Z of Fragrance is the letter ‘G’ – and the only ‘G’ that could possibly count in the world of perfume is ‘Guerlain’. Like many fellow perfume nerds I have a major soft spot for this venerable French house and with this guide I aim to take you on a whirlwind tour of all that is Guerlain including the perfumers that have made the house the great institution that it is.

If you hadn’t guessed already, Monday is my Escentual post day and this week’s feature is a review of the newly relaunched Miss Dior Eau de Toilette. You know the one that used to be Miss Dior Cherie, but is now Miss Dior, not to be confused with the original Miss Dior which is now Miss Dior Original? Got that?
Despite the name-based confusion it is a very nice scent indeed, please click on the image above to see my review!
