While he waits to hear if he's been picked to helm Dior, Givenchy's head designer Riccardo Tisci has been busy with other projects. One which is quickly garnering attention is his debut scent for the label, titled Dahlia Noir. Embodying all the dark romance that Tisci channels in his garments, the fragrance is being described as, "haunting and sensual, a “fatal flower” for mysterious and fascinating women."
The potion is reportedly concocted with top notes of mandarin peppercorn, mimosa and rose. The core is arranged with notes of rose, iris and patchouli. The fund is organized with notes of sandalwood, vanilla and tonka bean. When released, the collection will include Eau de Parfum Spray, Eau de Toilette, moisturizing milk and shower gel.
Tisci picked one of his regular muses, Mariacarla Boscono, to be the face of the scent and star in the Dahlia Noir ad campaign. Dressed in lacy and bondage-like Givenchy, Boscono seems to represent the dichotomy between good and evil. Bottomline: we can't wait to try it. Though we, like the rest of the world, will have to wait until Dahlia Noir's worldwide debut in August.
