Pleasant, Safe Autumn/Winter Fragrance
New for Autumn 2020 is Bath & Body Works Dahlia a borderline floriental/gourmand. Notes include Crisp Pear, Dahlia Petals, and Praline.

Dahlia is a light, sweet fragrance that treads the line between floriental and gourmand pretty well. Ultimately, it turns reasonably gourmand, but there are enough floral notes to cause it to waft back and forth between those two categories. Ultimately, this is a safe, unisex fragrance appropriate to virtually any setting, and as such, it is also a pretty unremarkable fragrance. Although carnation is not a listed note, I think I detect a mild carnation note in it. Perhaps dahlia smells similar to carnation?

The presentation is very visually appealing as it is with most B&BW body sprays. Would I buy it again? Probably not because although it is nice, it is not compelling, and like another B&BW 2020 release, Golden Sunflowers, it smells too similar to some of the B&BW fragrances I already own and have yet to use up. However, I would consider buying it as a gift for someone who likes these notes. More and more, new B&BW fragrances smell like others from their back catalog which is not a good thing for the fragrance collector. B&BW seems to be recycling old fragrances by mildly tweaking the formulas, then renaming and repackaging them. They do not seem to create the kinds of fragrances now that are comparable with some of their truly great fragrances, e.g. Sensual Amber, Black Amethyst, Dark Kiss, Cashmere Glow, and Twilight Woods just to name my top five fragrances from their back catalog. Although, they have created some very nice florals recently including Fresh Gardenia, One in a Million, and a somewhat qualified Rose due to its deep dry down.

If you are looking for a nice, enjoyable fragrance for Autumn/Winter, though, Dahlia fits the bill. It is neither too sweet nor too gourmand. Performance is "okay." I think, however, if you used the body lotion or body creme with the body spray, it would be much more effective.
