There’s a new perfume in town, it’s beautifully packaged, it’s beautifully scented and I’m fairly sure it’s a future classic.
This is a young vibrant and beautiful scent and I have to say it’s fun. I’m seeing this becoming a firm favourite for teens with a sense of class about them!
It seems a bit of a departure for Guerlain from their usual kinds of scents which I am a fan of, but seem much older, not only in terms of who they suit, but also in the sense that they smell like they have been around for a long time, which of course many if not most of them have.
Although I wouldn’t class myself as anything like young any more (sob) this perfume is the kind of scent I absolutely adore. Overwhelmingly fruity, in particular black cherry but there are so many other scents in the mix. There’s tonka bean, there’s vanilla, iris and patchouli, there’s rose and touches of liquorice and black tea. Creating something beautiful. It won’t be for anyone, it won’t be for those who don’t like sweet perfumes. It really reminds me of Givenchy’s Hot Couture which I’m not even sure they still make but that I absolutely used to love.
Then there’s the beautiful bottle. There’s the beautiful scrolled bottle shape, ombre pink/black glass and of course, the little black dress. It is truly a beautiful bottle. Again, I feel it’s young, but at the ripe old age of 38 I’m still going to rock this one for all it’s worth. This has currently replaced all my Angel versions as my scent of choice.
I’m sure it’s going to be incredibly popular.
La Petite Robe Noire is £42 and available from Selfridges. Definitely one to check out.
