Lover in a Bottle

Dahlia Divin Givenchy Hereford Chave and Jackson Pharmacy
Dahlia Divin Eau De Toilette, a woody floral with staying power.

NotesJasmine, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and Mirabelle plum

I wandered into Chave & Jackson on Broad Street in the Hereford City Centre in search of a new ‘signature scent’. This genuinely can take a while, simply due to the fact that my fragrance palette never cooperates with my budget or moods. DAHLIA Divin by Givenchy has been on my mind since last year and since it isn’t available at Boots in Hereford, I wandered into our local independent chemists and beauty retailer hoping it would be in stock; they did not disappoint.

I discovered that the Perfume and Eau De Toilette vary greatly.  I haven’t come across such a contradiction among perfumes until now.  The reason I am even mentioning this scent is because the EDT (eau de toilette) is BEAUTIFUL! Warm and Spicy, rather sensual and reminiscent of a holiday in Brazil or Morocco with the hottest, tannest lover you have ever had. Get my point?  It also had staying power comparable to a perfume.

Basically, I am sold.  The Perfume, as opposed to the EDT, is a very personal choice so personally I do not recommend it as a gift.  One must spritz it on first and give it time to react with our chemistry.  It could work or fail.  On the other hand,the EDT is a marvellous Christmas Gift and at £53 for 50 ml, a standard price for scents these days.
