    La Petite Robe Noire 2012 by Guerlain

    I'm sorry but the Guerlinade is a far memory and i agree with rttoronto. Really an unpleasant fruity syrup not particularly dense but unbalanced, synthetical and overshadowed by a strong licorice/berries/patchouli kind of boozy-candied dominant chord. The latter is too much syrupy (in a fruity/chemical sweet way) to permit a refined floral vibe turning out with grace and subtle complexity. I detect the anisy/almondy touch in the final part of the olfactory development while the rosey character is overcasted and altered by a bombastic fruity (cherry/blackberry) patchouli. Nothing able to keep my interest.
