Looking for a last minute present for your wife, girlfriend, mum, nan? Givenchy have released this 'sophisticated' scent that changes and develops as you wear it which would make a lovely gift.
With notes of plum, jasmine and sandlewood, Dahlia Divin a very elegant and spicy scent. Of the main groups i.e. sweet, spicy, floral, fruity etc, I'd class it as floral, with spicy undertones. It's definitely more of an evening scent as it's quite powerful, but it's very elegant with it. The longer you wear it, the more it develops and changes and it's quite as over-powering. I know describing it as a 'warm' scent might sound strange, but it's the kind of scent I could imagine wearing to an elegant Christmas or New Years party, drinking red wine and standing by an open fire while someone walks around with canape's - that's a very specific scenario I know :)
The packaging for this is beautiful, it comes in a rectangular glass bottle, with a rectangular lid that has a soft yellowy-gold edge. The perfume itself is a sort of amber colour. When I first smelled this, my first thought was that it was a bit of a mumsy scent, however after spraying it and wearing it my mind was changed, it's not mumsy, it's 'sophisticated' and 'elegant' - I think anyone could pull this off.
It's also available in a gift set with 50ml of perfume, and a 12.5ml travel spray, all for the same price as the stand alone 50ml bottle :) You can pick it up here.
