Givenchy Dahlia Noir Fragrance - An Imaginary Flower fragrance I ♥

There is one fragrance I ♥ from Givenchy, one of the leading purveyors of contemporary luxury, Dahlia Noir. I like its floral powdery scents. Dahlia Noir is the first fragrance developed under the creative direction of Riccardo Tisci. 
This fragrance embodies a mysterious and atypical woman. Not only that, Dahlia Noir resonates with a fragile strength, a confluence of opposing forces, to better express the tough softness of the woman who wears it.
I have abottle of Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum that engraved with my name. I just fall in ♥ with this “Black Dalia", a powdery fragrance of dusty chypre -floral. ^-^
The Concept of Dahlia Noir
Dahlia Noir is the quintessence of the Givenchy style. Its fragrance is a new classic. Its woman is a new icon. Dahlia Noir is meant to become a new legend.
The Fragrance......
The dahlia is a scentless flower, giving free rein to the imagination and creation. Dahlia Noir by Givenchy is thus a mysterious dream, a fantasized and seductive flower.
Like the blossom that it embodies, the Dahlia Noir fragrance is both feminine and sensual thanks to its floral and fruity aspect, but also captivating thanks to its woody aspect.
A flower plucked from a dream, an irresistibly tempting flower. 

The fragrance is a creation by François Demachy, the official perfumer of LVMH, developed in collaboration with Riccardo Tisci.
The Dahlia Noir EDP is a floral powdery chypre whereas the Dahlia Noir EDT is a radiant fruity floral.
The Bottle......
With its spare architectural lines and perfectly balanced proportions, the bottle seems timeless. Solid yet delicate, elegant yet pared-down, at once powerful and yielding, it is a synthesis of opposites, like the fragrance it contains, like the Dahlia Noir woman herself.

The Packaging......
The spare elegance of the case, and the black lettering against a black-trimmed pink background for the EDP (or against a silver-trimmed beige pink background for the EDT), express the deliberately contradictory concept of minimalist opulence. The nude pink recalls the powdery softness of the scent. 

The Scent......
1.) Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum 
The Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum, “Black Dalia", is a floral powdery chypre fragrance. This fragrance evokes a powdery seduction. The powdery softness of a bouquet of roses, iris and mimosa. The bewitching potency of patchouli and tonka bean.  

2.) Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette
The Dahlia Noir Eau de Toilette is a radiant fruity floral fragrance. This fragrance expresses a more luminous, fruitier vision. A burst of citrus softened by a transparent peach. The elegance of an unforgettable sensual rose.
 The Givenchy Dahlia Noir price list:
EDP 30ml - RM 234
EDP 50ml - RM 333
EDP 75ml - RM 396
EDT 30ml - RM 190
EDT 50ml - RM 267
EDT 75ml - RM 324
Body Milk 200ml  - RM 175
Shower Gel 200ml - RM167

Givenchy Dahlia Noir is available at most of the leading departmental stores Isetan , Jusco, Parkson, Robinsons, Sephora and Sogo KL.
  Happy Wednesday from JustNorahs!

I have been using the REDKEN Time Reset Shampoo and Conditioner for about a month and they works well on my fine hair.

The REDKEN Time Reset Shampoo comes in size of 300ml. This shampoo is enriched with lipids. It actually provides a rich, and abundant lather when I massage on my wet hair. REDKEN Time Reset Shampoo gently cleanses to remove impurities and at the same time smoothing the cuticle to help porous, age-weakened hair. It also delivering nourishing lipids to help restore the hair’s natural barrier of protection during hair wash. 

This shampoo helps with my frizz hair problem. As we know, one of the factor for frizz hair is due to the high porosity hair (holes in cuticle). After using this shampoo and its conditioner, my long hair become less frizz and shiner. This shampoo does provide enough moisture to my hair and my hair become softer too! The only thing I don't like about this shampoo is, it's scent. It doesn't has a nice scent like other shampoo.
The Vital 5 Complex in REDKEN Time Reset haircare:
1.) Intra-Cylane® - Evens porosity and improves strand resilience

2.) Peptides & Ceramide - Repair and resurface

3.) Green Tea - Neutralizes free radicals with antioxidant support

As usual, this conditioner is used after shampooing, apply and distribute through mid-lengths to ends of hair. Leave on for about 30 seconds and rinse out. My long hair looks smooth and shiner. The REDKEN Time Reset Conditioner has floral scents and this scents is better than the shampoo.

We all love Ferrari sport cars but not all of us can afford to own a Ferrari sport car. :( However, we can own the latest Scuderia Ferrari Black Limited Edition 2013 fragrance!

As for the design, it is a collector version of the legendary bottle. This collector edition embodies a modern and refined new interpretation of the mythical BLACK matte bottle. Directly inspired by the Formula 1 heritage, the bottle acquires strength and power through an exquisite printed glossy flag. The contrast between the matte black paint and the brilliance of the racing flag in motion awards a touch of dynamism and masculine elegance. The black velvet softness and iconic yellow racing shield pay tribute to the original bottle. 

The fragrance......The famous scent of the original Black. This Limited Edition preserves the mythical fragrance of the original Black. 
The top accord releases an exciting and fusing strength: 
the harmony of Citrus notes, Lime and Bergamot, blended with bright-fruity touches, Apple and Plum.

The heart accord diffuses a deep mystery: 
warm spices, Cardamom and Cinnamon rounded by a precious floral accord of Jasmine and Rose. 
The base notes reveal an intense and masculine sensuality: elegant woody notes of Cedarwood and Amyris Wood, softened by Vanilla and intense Crystals Musk.

Important: Discontinuation of products containing Rhododenol 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol

Recently I read about an announcement on Kanebo Malaysia FB about the discontinuation of products containing the quasi-drug ingredient Rhododenol 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol! What caught my attention was, one of the product that I'm using - Kanebo BLANCHIR SUPERIOR White Deep Milky Conditioner contain this ingredient! :O Luckily, the bottle that I'm using is not silver cap version.  
I just thought of sharing the announcement with my readers in case you guys didn't know about this and also if you are having one of this items. Visit the Kanebo counter where you purchased your products and their beauty consultants will be able to assist you with your queries regarding the discontinuation.

Discontinuation of products containing the quasi-drug ingredient Rhododenol 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol.

We, Kanebo Cosmetics Malaysia, have imported and sold skincare and cosmetics products manufactured by Kanebo Cosmetics Inc.

Kanebo Cosmetics Inc. has sold us the brightening products containing the quasi-drug ingredient Rhododenol 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol. Since 2008, approximately 4 over million bottles was sold in Japan. It has been confirmed that there are 39 consumers in Japan who used these brightening products who have reported the appearance of white blotches on their skin.

Rhododenol is an active quasi-drug ingredient approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in accordance with the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act after passing extensive safety tests. However, as long as there is the possibility of a connection between Rhododenol and the symptoms mentioned above, Kanebo Cosmetics Malaysia has decided to discontinue all of the products containing the ingredient with immediate effect.

As far as we know, the cases stated above have yet to be confirmed to date in our country. Nevertheless, we will still discontinue the products as we would give the safety and security of Kanebo user as a top priority.

Should you need any additional information & assistance, please contact your Kanebo Beauty Consultant.

Discontinued products:

Kanebo BLANCHIR SUPERIOR (Launched from 2011 April):
- White Deep Clear Conditioner
- White Deep Milky Conditioner
- White Deep Night Conditioner
- White Deep Mask
- White Deep UV Day Protector

*Items with silver cap version

- White Lotion
- White Emulsion
- White Fit Mask 3D

- Lotion

Note: In our earlier announcement, we stated “Since 2011 April, approximately 4 over million bottles of brightening products containing the quasi-drug ingredient Rhododenol 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol have been sold.” The actual time frame should have been “since the year 2008,” we apologise for the error and inconvenience caused.
