What a lovely combination!sour cherry,red berries, licorice,anise and vanilla,all and all speaks of a delicious,sweet and mischievous fragrance that smells like one of those delicious fruity lolipops we consumed as children.it is not too cloying or heavy as some Oriental-Vanilla can be. Joyful,Modern, Enjoyable,Indulgent,Sweet,Charming,Yummy,Addictive and Downright pretty.
Introductory joyful and luscious notes of bergamot, coriander and sour cherry rest over a charming heart of rose,licorice and tea,blended with warm patchouli, anis,tonka bean and vanilla provide a sweet and sensual base that serve to mollify it enough to allow men to flirt with you shamelessly.the bottle is as adorable as the scent.

Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
A work friend is wearing this today... smells like Redskins.
Candy-like, very sweet and youthful but lacking character...
Review for the EDP version.
I have come to appreciate this for what it is - the perfume equivalent of exactly what it proclaims to be: a little black dress. Easy to wear, flattering to most (I have had a compliment when wearing it, and that NEVER happens) and the perfect thing to throw on when you're pushed for time and want something you know you won't regret later.
On my skin the predominant notes are black cherry, almond and vanilla, in good balance. Unlike many similar fragrances, the cherry doesn't fade completely after half an hour, leaving only a sweet gourmand base. In the case of LPRN it remains in the foreground adding lift to the composition, which never becomes cloying. And longevity is excellent - it remains a comforting, if quiet, presence throughout the day. Does it ask the questions and have the gravitas of the classic Guerlains? No, but that's not the point - it's just a well-crafted, well-balanced everyday perfume for a decent price, and sometimes that's what you want.
Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire
An embarrassing, far below average perfume from Guerlain of which I’m not sure of for whom it was made in mind - or why in the first place. I just cannot picture this being worn by a human being - more like a flavoring dress-up for tea or candies... Its a too crude, harsh, loud, overdone and overly too sweet perfume that smells awfully much like all the candies in the world stuffed in a very warm candy-store, creamy sugar-coated bitter almonds in liquid form, overripe black-cherries and/or like getting woke up early in the morning with a cotton-candy pushed into your face. It tries to imitate LL and Angel at the same time and fails by doing so; it tries to be trendy and hip, but in the end screams like a spoiled little kid that wants more candy but doesn’t get anymore. How can this wear the Guerlain-label?

For fans of black cherry
Every young woman could do with a little black dress in her wardrobe. It can be chic, it can be sexy, it's versatile. But a bittersweet-fruity licorice candy scent? I'm not so sure. I do not know how it compares to the original limited edition but the scent itself is not bad; it has this attractively constructed black cherry accord that I find alluring.
Pros: Young & playful vibe
Cons: Of limited appeal"
This smells like cherry cola and reminds me of Tommy Girl, but made with Guerlain-quality ingredients. If you are a fan of the classic Guerlains, this is likely to disappoint. It would work as an introduction to fine fragrance, perhaps for a teenager.
