Bath & Body Works Dahlia Fine Fragrance Mist Review: Hey guys, let’s talk about a relatively new fragrance by Bath & Body Works – Dahlia. This was first released in the United States around 2020 and its still gaining popularity everywhere. If you have read some of my previous blogs, you probably know I am not much of a floral person. I got this because I was purchasing a bunch of gift items for family members.
Obviously, I decided to keep it for myself after smelling it for the very first time. Let me tell you all about it below.

In Detail Bath & Body Works Dahlia Fine Fragrance Mist Review and My Experience
The Dahlia mist by Bath & Body Works comes in a transparent bottle, pretty standard packaging for Bath & Body Works fine fragrance mists. The liquid inside has this absolutely gorgeous golden hue which matches the golden label and top. BBW nailed it with the packaging theme on this one.
I am someone who’s never into floral scents. This one is literally named after a flower. So the only reason I actually got it was for someone else to begin with. But then, that person ended up with something else. When I first smelled it, I was totally mesmerised. I mean, this is supposed to be everything I do not like – I was thinking this would be floral, sweet, fruity!
Bath and Body Works describes the scent as A beautiful blend of dahlia petals, crisp pear & praline. When I first spray it on, I get this absolutely beautiful sweet smell. Its still fruity sweet but in a very sophisticated, lady like way. Its nothing like the cheap sweet smelling fragrances. The sweetness here is actually very feminine with a touch of nuttiness. I never imagined, a sweet fruity smelling fragrance can smell this could.
Another unique thing about the smell is the fact that is doesn’t change much over the period of wear time. Like you know how most scents evolve little by little when you wear them, and sometimes they may or may not turn out to be a better version of themselves? Well you can somewhat avoid that confusion with this one.
This one starts off as a really sweet floral scent, and then the nutty praline takes the centre stage. The sweetness lingers on but never seems overpowering. The essence of the scent stays the same throughout.
Well if you are into florals, and sweet scents, there are full chances that you’d be into this one. But if you’re not into such scents, trust me, this one can turn out to be an exception like it did to me. I feel like for me this is a perfect “wear to work” kind of a smell. Its not overpowering, its present and makes you smell great but never seems strong. Even if you have people that don’t like florals, trust me, they wouldn’t mind this one.
It has a decent staying power. It stays for around 3-4 hours which is pretty good for a fragrance mist. Of course as you wear it, it mellows down significantly, but never really loses its charm for sure.
I feel this is a fresh new additional to the floral scents by Bath & Body Works which I feel like would be loved by most fragrance enthusiasts. If you have tried it on, please do not forget to tell me about your experience with it in the comments below.
