This is irresistible and it's name fits to perfection. It embodies the concept of the little black dress: flattering and easy to wear, a safe choice for when you are clueless of what to put on, but yet chic and daring.
La Petite Robe Noire is a delicious combination of sweet, sweet berries, delicate florals, and a spicy final touch. At first, it's a big punch of berry-burst and almond notes, followed by the romantic notes of roses, to unfold over the base of licorice, smoky black tea and patchouli.
It's dark and enigmatic, sexy and inviting. If casual, it's a smart-casual. I bought it only a few days ago and already wore it for three different events, formal evening, cocktail and daytime casual, and felt comfortable with the scent for it suited perfectly.
This one is pretty unique both in my wardrobe and within people around Buenos Aires. Guerlain is not much known and has not the same status it does elsewhere, so besides the fact that I adore the scent, I bought it for that uniqueness I wrote above. Plus, the bottle is gorgeous.
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.
LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE is a brilliant flirtatious charm, this head-turning perfume can be dressed up or down for evening,dancing and dining wear.when you go on a date were it,it will surely get his attention. perfect for a cute young lady in the Autumn/Winter.if you like LOLIT LEMPICKA fragrances,this is the perfume for you.a irresistible scent for men.
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?
