    a brighter and fresher ‘noir’ seems to be the trend now. Don’t bother putting ‘noir’ in it. Just stoooopid! I want a real noir!!!!!!!! Names are getting so stupid these days, just like movies.

    • Robin says:

      All true!!

    • Lys says:

      Yes, the L’Eau cancels out the Noir.

      Where L’Eau = – (Noir),
      Dahlia Noir + L’Eau = Just Dahlia,

    I rather liked Dahlia Noir, but can’t imagine why a “lighter, fresher” version would be needed.

  3. Lys says:

    How could they make a lighter, fresher version of Dahlia Noir? It would have to dissipate on contact and they’d have to include with it with a bottle of Febreze or something?

  4. Omega says:

    Lol, guess I am cranky today! Haha. But ya, the EDT is(underline is) the fresh version. Just call it Givenchy Eau eau fraiche is still popular as well.

    To be fair, and I don’t particularly want to be, there are black dahlias out there. Then again, dahlias don’t usually have a smell. Just talked myself back into the “dumb name for a perfume” camp…

    • ChocolatEyes613 says:

      Dahlia Noir is not a dumb perfume name, it is an offensive perfume name. The Black Dahlia is a gruesome, unsolved murder case.

      • Celestia says:

        In defence of the name, the Black Dahlia Murder case occurred in 1947 and it’s probable that it may not have been as well known in France at that time. The fragrance is named after a black flower in FRENCH and does not refer to the murder. When does the statute of limitations run out on a phrase in the public domain so that it can once again be used to convey its original meaning?

    Waiting for the Dahlia Blanc!
