I guess this week its my "perfume stage". The perfume Im going to post today is; Guerlain 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 story of La Petite Robe Noire began in 2009, when the house of Guerlain launched an exclusive and limited edition fragrance which was only available to a very selective clientele, followed by La Petite Robe Noire 2 last year.
Left: The first La Petite Robe Noire. Right: The new one.
This fall, Guerlain will offer this very chic scent to broad market. Fresher, more radiant and passionate, in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser has modified his big love, La Petite Robe Noire slightly.
Personally speaking, I have started using the new launched perfume and Im loving it but waiting for the sun to go down it suits my skin beter.
The playful and sparkling aromas of black cherry, bergamot, red berries and almond. Bulgarian and Turkish roses rule the heart along with licorice and smoked black tea. Aniseed, tonka bean, vanilla, iris and patchouli form the base.
Modern fragrance that is unashamedly girlish, but they never overpower and make this scent ridiculously easy to wear (and love).
Top notes: Red berries, black cherries, almond and bergamot
Middle notes: Licorice, Bulgarian and Turkish roses and smoked black tea
Base notes: Anise and the famous Guerlinade (A mix of the Guerlain’s beloved ingredients: Tonka bean, vanilla, iris and patchouli)
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. 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?
The ‘heart-shaped’ bottles of the La Petite Robe Noir collection are inspired by the legendary vials of the house, such as L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko. The dress illustration has been altered every time so that each of the three fragrances shows a different shape of this clothing. The animated ad campaign was created by French artists Olivier Kuntzel and Florence Deygas.
And, the best part…the Nancy Sinatra song on the video.
"These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you"
