Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Collection Review

The Little Black Dress Edit, Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Collection Review

 

If you were to ask me what I think is the most joyful and exuberant feminine fragrance on the market today, I would answer with Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire, not allowing for a moment’s hesitation.  La Petite Robe Noire simply is a damn good perfume and in a world where the modus operandi is perfumes stuffed with sickly sweet fruit and vague flowers, it schools the competition as to how a proper fruity floral (or even a proper perfume, for that matter) should be done.

La Petite Robe Noire started its life as a Guerlain boutique-exclusive perfume, created by perfumer Delphine Jelk.  As its name suggests, the fragrance was designed to evoke the most iconic of fashions – the little black dress and used suitably dark and vivacious ingredients, such as black tea, liquorice and cherry, to capture the timeless essence of the LBD.

I remember sniffing it at the time of its launch (just before I quickly snapped up a bottle) and thinking that Guerlain had missed a trick by not launching it with wider distribution – “this stuff would sell like hot cakes”, I said to myself.  Well it turns out that’s exactly what the brand decided to do and what a wise decision it was.  Colour me psychic!

In 2012, having been re-orchestrated (read: slightly tweaked) by Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser, La Petite Robe Noire was dressed in a brand new bottle and launched to the unsuspecting masses.  It turns out that the world was very much ready for an expertly crafted perfume that comes served with a healthy dollop of French whimsy and humour.  It was unsurprisingly, a massive hit.

Guerlain’s walk-in closet is now filled with four different black dresses, each of which showcases a completely different style.  These different versions (the Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Extrait and Couture) are more than just varying concentrations, they are entirely unique garments expertly crafted by the most iconic of perfume houses.  There is a place for at least one in every perfumistas wardrobe.  The only question is – which one will it be?

 

 

La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum New

The Notes

Top: Bergamot, Black Cherry, Almond and Berries
Heart: Bulgarian Rose and Turkish Rose Absolute
Base: Liquorice, Patchouli and Black Lapsang Tea Leaves

 

How Does it Smell?

La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum is very similar to the exclusive version launched originally in 2009, in fact I would even say that it captures everything that the original has to offer but succeeds at being altogether more vibrant and fun.  It opens with a haze of flirtatious vivacity, floating about with notes of sparkling bergamot, tart raspberries and deliciously sweet cherry.  The top notes are wonderfully effervescent, fizzing around like the dancing hemline of a bubbly black dress, and it’s hard to sniff them without wanting to smile.

But La Petite Robe Noire isn’t all about fizz and fluff, in fact it is so much more.  Guerlain is well known for being the pastry chef of the fragrance world, using gourmand notes in unconventional ways to create beautifully wearable perfumes that are tasty but not sickly.  Their ode to the little black dress is no exception and the bright, diffusive character of the top notes is backed up by a plethora of tasty treats.  Sweet, nutty almond, dark anise, rose and raspberry come together to give the impression of a decadent macaron, straight from the glamorous patisseries of Paris.

In the base, La Petite Robe Noire becomes warmer and considerably more dense.  A measured dose of patchouli meets liquorice, vanilla and smoky lapsangsouchong tea to create a plush bed of delicious aromas that ensures that this perfume is not just a cloud of ditzy fizz, and to reaffirm that it’s an expertly crafted delicacy.

La Petite Robe Noire is a strong and distinct character.  She’s an ebullient fashionista with the talent, smarts and eye for beauty required to maintain one’s interest.  I’m just going to go ahead and say it – La Petite Robe Noire is a modern masterpiece.

 

 La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette

The Notes

Top: Rose, Jasmine and Orange Blossom
Heart: Cherry, Apple, Blackcurrant and Green Notes
Base: White Amber and Musk

 

How Does it Smell?

Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette isn’t just a lighter version of the Eau de Parfum, it’s a new interpretation of the little black dress signature, viewed from another angle.  This viewpoint is much fresher and zestier than the original, evoking the image of a short summer dress as opposed to something better suited to eveningwear.

La Petite Robe Noire EdT starts with a blast of crisp and dewy notes.  Pink apple, bergamot and jasmine all jump into the foray to create an opening accord that is pretty, diffusive and joyfully sunny.  It’s lighter, yes, but that’s not to say that the spirit of the original has been ‘dumbed down’ or lost in this brightness.  Instead the effect is delightfully relaxed and breezy.

The key difference between the EdP and the EdT lies in their use of flowers.  Where the more intense Eau de Parfum utilised a gourmand rose note, the Eau de Toilette presents a sweet but transparent use of orange blossom, giving the impression of subtle floral prints.  This takes La Petite Robe Noire to dizzying heights where a playful spirit is a requirement and a love for fashion is a welcome bonus.

The dense pastry of the EdP’s base is replaced in the EdT with a glowing cocktail of white musks.  These musks add diffusion whilst tempering the perfume’s sweetness, to create a dry down filled with dry, hay-like florals and freshly cleaned linen.  It all simply works as a lighter, more casual approach to the La Petite Robe Noire signature without losing any of the high-fashion sensibility that makes wearing these perfumes such a joy.

 

La Petite Robe Noire Extrait

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Extait

The Notes

Cherry, Black Tea, Almond, Patchouli and Vanilla

 

How Does it Smell?

Those of you who are familiar with Guerlain’s Extraits, or any Extrait for that matter, will know that these precious concentrations are the most supreme editions of their fragrance.  La Petite Robe Noire is very much in keeping with this – it is to perfume what Chanel couture is to fashion, and it is easily the least frivolous and most sultry version of Guerlain’s little black dress.

Dabbed from the gorgeous heart stoppered bottle, La Petite Robe Noire Extrait is instantly richer, deeper and dare I say – smokier.  That’s right, this is the sexiest of the little black dresses and it’s the one that’s likely to ensnare unsuspecting gentlemen who simply cannot resist how darn delicious it is.  Sniffing it, one can’t help but imagine that there is a striking set of lingerie (in black, of course) hiding just beneath the surface.

La Petite Robe Noire’s gourmand facet is also intensified and in the Extrait this element is pure cherry pie, filled to the brim with sticky cherries & marzipan and topped with Guerlain’s thick and chewy pastry accord – a signature seen in the house’s classic oriental gourmand ‘L’Heure Bleue’.  Everything about it is delightfully sumptuous and unctuous, making for an enveloping experience that puts so many other fruity gourmands to shame.

Now all of this may make the Extrait sound thick, heavy and indigestible but the truth is far from it.  Thierry Wasser is a masterful perfumer and by the slight use of his hand and a masterful flourish of dark, smoky tea and spicy vanilla, he has managed to create an exceptional contrast to all of those edible notes.  The result is a warm, resinous base that feels both rough and smooth.

La Petite Robe Noire Extrait is a truly indulgent and luxurious perfume.  Like most Extraits it wears close to the skin, draping one’s skin in a silky veil of delectable scent that lasts for the longest time.  If you’re looking for the most complex, striking and exquisite little black dress to wear then this version really is a treat.

 

La Petite Robe Noire CoutureGuerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum Couture

The Notes

Top: Bergamot and Raspberry
Heart: Rose Essence and Rose Absolute
Base: Patchouli, Moss, Vetiver and Tonka Bean

 

How Does it Smell?

La Petite Robe Noire Couture is the newest dress in Guerlain’s wardrobe and it is definitely the most different of the garments hanging in the closets at no. 68 Champs-Élysées.  For this particular take on the LBD, Guerlain have taken the La Petite Robe Noire signature into the glamorous and standoffish world of the chypre.  Now the term ‘chypre’ should be used loosely here, this is no Mitsouko after all (Guerlain’s classic chypre) but it is a thoroughly good stab at bringing the most mossy and aloof genre bang up to date.

This couture edition of La Petite Robe Noire is notably different right from the outset.  For a start, it’s much crisper and filled with fresh, dewy notes up top, replacing the tartness of raspberry with a slightly sour dose of bergamot and pear.  This is a distinctly transluscent twist on the delectable signature so wonderfully defined by the Eau de Parfum and it takes La Petite Robe Noire into entirely more sophisticated and glamorous heights.

The gourmand facet unfurls at a much slower pace and to a lesser extent than any other of the little black dresses.  The bursting skins of sweet cherries found in both the EdP and Extrait are swapped for a delicate slug of cherry water, providing a much softer use of the note.  This cherry-soaked water surrounds a beautifully understated and jammy rose note that acts as a subtle nod to the macaron heart of the original.

But whilst this more chypre-like version of La Petite Robe Noire is decidedly less edible than its sisters, it doesn’t lose its sense of fun, it’s just that its idea of fun is entirely different.  You’re more likely to find this one possessing a seat on the front row of Paris fashion week than you are dancing the night away in New York’s trendiest clubs.

La Petite Robe Noire Couture is the most mature and grown-up perfume in the collection.  In the base particularly, where it uses the astringent qualities of patchouli and vetiver to create a discordant texture akin to rubbing one’s hand the wrong way across a piece of velvet.  It successfully merges the gourmand and the chypre to present a fragrance that is both contemporary and glamorous in an old-fashioned kind of way.  If the original La Petite Robe Noire was a black baby doll made out of chiffon and leather, this one is a silk gown with clean lines, straight edges and a bucket load of style.

    My favourite would definitely be Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum. I can wear it all the time – on a night out, in the university, on a date, even when I am just watching movies in my pyjamas! I’ve never read about the notes before, but I can see now that one of the main ones is Bulgarian Rose, and me, being a Bulgarian, always appreciate this smell. 🙂

    • marina

      Today I could feel spring was in the air and while the sun warmed up my inner and outerself I knew is was time to treat myself. So I went for my new spring perfume. When I left happy with my spring in a bottle, the lady of the store sprayed a new scent on me. Half way the street I was in love and it was not for my new perfume but for the scent that smells like not spring or summer but just the way i like to smell always. So I went back to the store and asked a sample of this amazing scent. It was LPRN couture. A total surprise because I own a bottle LPRN eau the parfum and I didn’t recognized it. I found it totally different and is smells oh la la so good!! So that’s why LPRN couture is gonna be my next scent.

  • While the Eau de Parfum is my scent, that is because the Couture version hasn’t been available until now. Fun and witty, with quite a few quips to bring to the table and a recognizable, charm that can only be the Guerlinade. A modern classic with a distinct femininity and freshness that makes me – and the LPRNs unique amongst the others.
    Will be adding the couture to my collection whether I should be one of the lucky winners or not, because it will be a welcome variation on my signature scent.

  • Rainbow

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de
    Parfum is the fragrances that best suits my personality.

    With my sweet,
    warm, bubbly personality. It would be the perfect addition to my perfume wardrobe.

  • clio

    Is there such a thing as having a fashion spirit animal? If so, mine would be Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette; sweet, stylish, feminine and let’s be honest; decadent! Fittingly, I have fallen head over (Louboutin) heels with Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum. If I could live on Ladurée macarons, fruit tarts and lapsang souchong tea, I would move into the Four Seasons George V aujourd’hui! Since that will probably remain a taffeta & sugar-spun fantasy, please grant me a bottle of this gourmand so I can feel like a Parisian queen every day!

  • The La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum sounds gorgeously sweet and interesting. I think it would suit my personality as I like sweet, classic fragrances with a twist.

  • Jo Chu

    La Petite Robe Noir Couture suits me best as I love anything to do with berries. I have a sweet personality with a sour edge and I love to dress up in style!

  • Georgina Jacobs

    La Petite Robe Noire Extrait is the one that I would choose because of it’s elegant and warming vanilla notes. Sounds very alluring.

  • Sabine G.

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum is my favourite of the collection. It is such a lovely scent being created by the great perfumer Thierry Wasser who also created another of my favourite Guerlain scents (Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial). I also really like the combination of fruitiness and floral notes which make the fragrance fresh and fun.
    I generally really love Guerlain scents. They do not just smell amazingly but also seem to tell a story as the notes are constantly changing. I always keep sniffing my wrists if I wear any Guerlain scent as the fragrances always surprise you in one way or another. Can’t get enough of Guerlain perfumes!

  • Lisa Conway

    I love La Petite Robe Noir eau de parfum, as like me it’s mature and classy, but not stand-offish; it’s captivating and delicious; elegant and individual

  • Alityke

    I’m on a rose kick at the moment and chypre is my favoured style. Guess what I cannot wait to try? LPRN Couture notes read like it may have been made just for me!

  • Lily B

    Best match for me would be the Eau de Toilette: an optimistic casual style & full of fun!

  • Robert

    La petite robe noire est would be my favourite because I like roses and hate cherries for some reason

  • catherine corr

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum sounds fab+ the bottle looks classy

  • SapientOoze

    Undoubtedly my one would (unfortunately) be the Extrait one, as not only am I a sucker for smokey notes (& the deeper the better), but to put it over the edge I’ve a ‘sweet-tooth’ for pastry too. 🙂 … BUT failing that, I can easily see myself sufficiently content with the equally gorgeous sounding Eau de Parfum – I could never resist smokey-vanilla – YUM ! 🙂
    – And of course THANX for the fab give-away !

  • JonnaH.

    They all lovely, but Couture is my favorite. Soft and womanly.

  • Christina Loome

    Well the Extrait is my thing with tbe smokiness…yes…thanks for the chance to win.
    Christina

  • La Petite Robe Noire, love the sounds of sophisicated and fun different fragrance. Im both contemporary and glamorous and this sounds a perfect match for me.

  • Marthe Charlotte Berlin

    Thanks for the chance to win, I absolutely love the combination of jasmine, cherry and white musk, would love to test it on my skin.

  • I would dearly love to experience the Extrait, but Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette notes are more me. The way you described it it’s sophisticated but approachable. Classic but warm. I’d like to think that is me. And hey, isn’t that a large part of why we wear perfume, or choose one? To express to the world who we are, or want to be? 🙂

  • Isabella Wu

    I haven’t tried any of these fragrances yet. But from the review above I’m pretty sure the couture version suits me best. Described as both contemporary and glamorous in an old-fashioned kind of way… so me! I like classics with a twist.

  • Stel

    Mmm, Cherries and almond with a smokey base – just my cup of afternoon tea :0)

  • Jo Reed

    La Petit a Robe Noire a Eau De Toilette would suit me best as I’m all about the ‘casual approach’ 😉

  • Tea N Crumpets

    Definitely La Petite Robe Noire Extrait! The only one not included in the gift package! But with those others for free, how could I resist forking out for the Extrait if the others turned out to be great? x

  • kate webster

    Got to be Noir Couture for me, i adore raspberries and pears and much prefer tartness to sickly sweet, both in perfumes and in fruit i eat. They provide a much more mature scent unlike a lot of perfumes available

  • Lauren Girard

    You make these sound tempting. I’d love to try any of them. The extrait sounds particularly good to me. I love to dab and the richer the better. After that, I’d love to try either the edp or the edt. Thanks for the draw! (I’m in the US)

  • burntsiennna

    You make these sound amazing. I would love to try any of them. The extrait sounds most tempting. I am always a sucker for a Guerlain extrait. After that I’d love to try either the EDP or the EDT. Thank you for the draw! (I am in the US)

  • Etomidac

    I actually put on La Petite Robe Noire EdP today! I think this suits me the best because it is modern, part fun, part poised and not over the top. The gourmand, juicy cherry and dark tea combination really won me over!
    I like the EdT too but when it comes to perfume I prefer something with more “body” and less fleeting.
    I recently tried Niore Couture but need a revisit!

  • Liam Doherty

    Hmm, slight sour notes and a discordant texture? Well that sounds just like me. I’d have to go for the Couture version.

  • Liam Doherty

    Slight sour notes? A discordant texture? That sounds like me. Definitely the Couture version.

  • D J F reeman

    La Petit a Robe Noire a Eau De Toilette

  • I think that the La Petite Robe Noire EdT would be most suited to me because it sounds like it smells like summer and as a June baby that appeals to me greatly. Also the top notes of the perfume along with the cherry are the scents that I would love to smell like all seasons through!

  • Nafia Guljar

    I would think I’m a mix of both the EdP and EdT, girly, playful, a bit quirky and effervescent! Not too keen on fruity perfumes but La Petite Robe Noire ticks all the boxes for me, wearable yet not too sickly. I would LOVE to try the Couture!

  • Eirp

    I currently have the Petite Robe Noir edp and it is gorgeous! Girly, playful, long-lasting with great sillage, perfect for winter and autumn. I really want to try the edt too, I think I would love it for the spring!

  • Bastet

    I have never smelled a Guerlain I didn’t love or at least like, and am especially fond of the classics. I haven’t yet had a chance to try any of the variations of LPRN. I think the Couture version would suit me best, as it sounds a bit more grown-up and sophisticated, maybe a little less sweet.

  • Annamaria0

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum would be my top choice as I am a foodie and therefore I am drawn to gourmand scents.

  • marina

    Today I feel spring was in the air and while the sun warmed up my inner and outerself I knew it was time to treat myself. So I went for my new spring perfume. When I left happy with my ‘spring in a bottle’ the lady of the store sprayed a new scent on me. Half way the street I was in love and it was not for my new perfume but for the new scent that smells not like spring or summer but just like the way i like to smell always. So I went back to the store and asked a sample of this amazing scent. It was LPRN couture a total surprise because I have LPRN eau de toilette and I didn’t recognized it. I found it totally different and it smells oh la la so good! So that’s why LPRN couture is gonna be my next perfume

  • Sarunas Baranauskas

    Petite Robe Noir eau de parfum, because the cherry note in this one is mouthwatering!

  • Olga

    I own the EDT and every time I wear it I fall in love with it again and again. For me personally it is a unique scent combining freshness and fruitiness ,especially CHERRY ,my favourite ,with a lovely musky dry down. It is definetelly my signature scent and an all time favourite.

  • Yukyung Jung

    La Petite Robe Noire Couture would be my pick, if I had to only pick one 🙂 I would love to try all of them, though!

  • sandian31

    Guerlain La Petit Robe Noire EDP would be my top choice as I like to think I am always Rosy, and just love Orange Blossom.

  • Lorna Kennedy

    The description “patchouli meets liquorice” sounds heavenly to me – patchouli takes me back to the seventies as it was all I wore as a teen, and I eat liquorice at any given opportunity. Job done!

  • Charley Foulds

    love EdT x Lovely smell!

  • Verity

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette best suits me because it’s sweet, breezy and joyful! 🙂

  • Pixie MseComper Wolfe

    I have never tried any of your perfumes, so I cannot really decide which ones matches my personality. I would want to try GUERLAIN La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml as it looks delicate and I love the picture and the shape of the bottle <3

  • Anna

    I can be a little intense so need a light scent to lighten me up and remind me not to take everything so seriously – I think ‘La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette’ will do the job nicely!

  • Madeline Connolly

    love the smell

  • Sharon Kitson

    AS THIS IS TOTALLY ME IN BOTTLED!!! 😉 GUERLAIN LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE EDP… I LOVE LITTLE BLACK DRESSES. MERCI XXX

  • AliThorpe

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture. I like the description of the somehow discordant scent and it sounds less sweet and, as you say, more grown up, which appeals to me xxx

  • Kirsten Stewart

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture would be my choice as I like a fragrance that is a bit more sophisticated and grown up. And if it gets me on the front row of a fashion show then that’s an added benefit 😉

  • stephney rae higham

    Love, love, love La Petite Robe Noire Extrait!

  • Alana Walker

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette because I love the smell of orange blossom and blackcurrantm it sounds divine!

  • Ane S

    La Petite Robe Noire Extrait best suits my personality as it has vanilla and i’m a sweet person and also love anything sweet! And, its the best little black dress!

  • Caroline H

    I think I’d be best suited to the La Petite Robe Noire Extrait. Cherry and almond are two of my favourite scents and it sounds like a combination of strong scents with sweet undertones, which is like me on a good day!

  • Michelle

    LA Petite Robe Noire EDP – flirtatious and energetic with a penchant for designer classics.

  • Katy Peterson

    I’d be La Petire Robe Noire Couture, somewhere in between a child and a gown up. I tend towards sweeter, youthful perfumes that smell edible – the bergamot in this makes it more grown-up and takes away some of the childishness of the fruit scent, making it perfect for more sophisticated occasions.

  • Louise Comb

    I genuinely don’t know, but I would love to find out. My gut feeling would be to choose:
    GUERLAIN La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum Spray. Mainly because it looks so chic and feminine 🙂

  • Jessica Wilde

    The Extrait would be my favourite – the smokiness of the black tea with the cherry and almond, then the sweet hint of vanilla. Just s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g!

  • Sharon Brett

    I would choose La Petite Robe Noire Couture as this is as classic as a little black dress;a timeless classic like myself

  • Sharon Cross

    I think the Parfum Extract would suit me best, refined and exclusive LOL! 😉

  • Nina Motylinski-Davies

    The toilette because I love the musky powdery notes!

  • lyn

    Not having tried any of these perfumes yet, I am unsure as to which I would like best . They all have elements which I am sure I would love , but I think that Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette sounds amazing. It is described as pretty, diffusive and joyfully sunny, and with summer on the way, honest, it sounds just right for me.

  • kimberleyjohnson

    La Petite Robe Noire Extrait, l am not a girly girl, the notes in this perfume are smells l like

  • catherine warburton

    I love the La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfume, the moment I wore it, I was taken into the world of heroism and knights on white steeds, it’s powerful message was one of glamour and style, thats my kind of pefume.

    La Petite Robe Noire Couture EDP would be my first choice as it is classy and elegant but not too overpowering. Subtle and distinctive but wearable day and night.

    La petit robe noire extrait sounds like it would be my favourite as it sounds more serious and less frivolous.

  • Nat

    looks devine ! <3

  • Lean S

    Thank you so much for this chance! I have tried the La Petite Robe Noire EDP, and I love it. However, I am now very interested in Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture, because I believe it will fit my mood lately since I have been trying for more charm and glamour :D.

    it’s fruity just like my gorgeous wife

  • Sonnistarr

    An image of the sophistication of slinky 1930s evening dresses, comes to mind in the description of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture – I think of vintage Hollywood and as I am a lover of this era, this would be my choice to wear as not sweet but a perfume of elegance to be worn with that satin slinky black dress, those long black gloves and not forgetting the long cigarette holder and smokey eyes…this is the vamp in me!

  • Debby Brown

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDP would suit my classic but mildly nutty personality, though I also have a soft spot for the sultry sexiness of La Petite Robe Noire Extrait. Along with all the other entrants, I will be keeping my fingers crossed hoping for some sweet-smelling luck to come my way.

  • Julieann Jefford

    I would like to try the La Petite Robe Couture perfume to experience the more elegant and challenging scent, just like I try to challenge and intrigue my husband. The first time I tried La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Partum was from a sample given to me by a lovely lady in John Lewis’ . From the moment saw the beautiful iconic bottle, inhaled the delightful cherry/ rose/ liquorice scent I was hooked. It made me feel glamorous and sophisticated and I wore it with panache hoping I could channel a smattering of Audrey Hepburn. The Couture scent will be more of a Isabella Rossellini in Blue Velvet, glamorous, unnerving but extremely sensual.

  • Julie Hayes

    La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum would suit me best. Mature, grown up and classy.

  • Ann Mcgivney

    I have all 3 perfumes and a real guerlain fan. I have every perfume that has been created by the house of Guerlain and am planning to visit the shop located in Paris again this year.
    Each of the perfumes are very sensuous but couture is by far my favourite. Very grown and sassy.

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum – I have loved Guerlain fragrances since being introduced to them in the 1970’s, Chamade was my first one, followed by Jicky and L’Heure Bleu and then the iconic Shalimar and Mitsouko – which still finds a home with me..

  • Amanda McConville

    Definitely the Eau de Toilette as I’m a chilled out summer person

  • Ruby Scarlett

    Parfum Extract, cherry, almond AND tea in one scent? Perfect.

  • Monika

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture – because I love fresh and refreshing fragrances

  • kirsty edgcumbe

    i think La petite robe noire extrait would suit me as it sounds very classy and thats how i see myself lol! xx

  • Calli

    I might prefer the lightness of the Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette.

  • peppermoon

    I’d like to enter for the regular EDP version, because it seems to have the strongest macaron note. French macarons are my favorite dessert, so I’m sure it would be a delight to smell like them.

  • Rey

    I like the La Petite Robe Noire Extrait as I prefer deeper scents

  • Katie Kingsbury

    La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum as it is the more grown-up of the fragrances. Being as it’s my birthday on Saturday, I suppose it’s about time I grew up (never gonna happen but worth a try!) 😉 .

  • Suslynne

    Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfumerie would best suit my personality, the bubbly freshness of Bergamot, maturing to ROSE for a rose loving tea drinking woman such as I with a lovely twist of liquorice with lblack lapsang I’m salivating now .

    Thanks for the chance to win x x x

  • Ruth Harwood

    Classic fragrance without a hint of the commonly popular smell of bubblegum! Delicious and feminine, that’s what I feel like wearing Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum.

  • Pip Judge

    I had a tester of this and oh my word it’s something out of this world so feminine x

  • For me it has to be Noire Couture, like the idea of it being fun but different, sophisticated and glamorous. Would love to have this in my life.

  • Anna Nemerova

    La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette, certainly. But I do not hear blackcurrant notes there. Hubby says I smell like a sweet muffin.

  • sandra henderson

    I am loving La Petite Robe Noire Extrait because its smoky,sultry reminds me of sexy,late night dancing in clubs and just suits my darker deeper personality.

  • Ray Ray Cartucci

    La Petite Robe Noire Couture is something I would love……I need it

  • La Petite Robe Noire Couture was sent to me as a tester and I hoped it would smell as great on me as it did in the tester. Most perfumes end up smelling like cats wee on me, for some reason, something to do with skin type!!! How ever I sprayed it on my wrists to start with and waited for the usual waft of cats wee………….. NOT this time, I smell AWESOME, FABULOUS, WONDERFUL and my husband noticed!!!!!!! This perfume is soft and delicate, yet fresh with a gentle headiness of a summers Rose garden and I’m in love with it. The headiness complements the rush I feel when I complete a piece of jewellery and the gentle delicateness complements the rising smile of my customers face when they are introduced to their bespoke piece of jewellery for the first time.
    I want to wear this every day X:-xX

  • Beverley Black

    It has to be La Petite Robe Noire Couture because anything with such beautiful feminine fruit/floral top and heart notes combined with the manly base of Patchouli, Moss, Vetiver and Tonka Bean is a contradiction – a little like me, girly but with a powerhouse lurking 😉

    Guerlain is my perfume house if choice.I would love to try the extrait because I have and love L’heure bleue and vol de nuit. Both perfumes are dark and sexy- the opposite to me- and have a scent which lasts long on the skin and on the senses. I am drawn to sophisticated perfumes even though I’m not sophisticated and the scents of Guerlain give me confidence which I am otherwise lacking. Nothing lifts the spirits more when someone tells you how good you smell. Guerlsin perfumes let you be the person you dream of being.

  • Lauren

    Le petit robe de noire eu de toilette because I am petite and love floral scents!
