Dahlia Noir launched around two years ago and I liked it but it wasn’t very long-lasting, Dahlia Noir L’Eau is part of the same range but is more spicy than Dehlia Noir (it was quite sweet).
The top notes are citron and neroli, the heart note is rose and the base note is patchouli, cedar and musk. Its designed to be feminine with the rose but fruity and spicy, therefore more grown-up and mature.
When it first sprayed, the citron is the only component, I could smell. On me that’s the most I can get, it fades within an hour but it can be different on other people. It didn’t last long for it to settle but I don’t think it smells particularly unique and distinctive but maybe it would, if it lasted longer, I found it quite disappointing.
Overall, have a smell and see what you think, it might be more long lasting on other people.
