I try: Guerlain's new scent La Petite Robe Noire



Guerlain’s newest – and sweetest! - fragrance creation is La Petite Robe Noire, a nod to the ideals behind finding that ultimate wardrobe holy grail: the Little Black Dress. 
The concept of finding the fragrance equivalent of fashion’s most essential item isn’t all that unusual when you consider how fragrance is used to both rock out some confidence and uplift the spirit, polish your appearance, and suitably reflect your particular sensibilities.  Just like fashion, it can leave a lasting impression – and hopefully a good one at that!
A sparkling, light eau de parfum, “as crisp and tender as a rose and cherry macaroon”, La Petite Robe Noire is a totally modern fragrance that is unashamedly girlish. There are sweet notes in there of Tonka bean, vanilla, iris and patchouli, but they never overpower and make this scent ridiculously easy to wear (and love). It is super fresh and a perfect new fragrance choice if you want to amp up your girlish side and have a bit of fun with your perfume, which is what it’s all about huh?
Illustrators have always accompanied the history of Guerlain, and for La Petite Robe Noire the house gave free rein to the legendary Kuntzel+Deygas, who created some gorgeous images to accompany the fragrance. They are famous for creating lovable “creatures”, which have claimed a place in all modes of creation: objects, cinema, advertising campaigns and exhibitions all over the world.
For Guerlain they have given birth to what they have described as “the sleek figure of a mischievous, endearing and refined Parisian woman moving through a unique showcase on the borders of fragrance and fashion”, as seen above. And isn’t she gorgeous?
