The little black dress has already transcended its formal function and use: You can either dress up or dress down with it, wear it with heels or boots, pair it with a well tailored blazer or camo- printed jacket, or accentuate it with pearls or neon accessories. In short, you can wear your LBD whenever and however you want it. And when it comes to finding the fragrance that will go with your LBD, you can definitely experiment by veering away from opulent perfumes and choosing something light and refreshing like La Petite Robe Noire for an interesting touch of contrast to your overall ensemble.
LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE EDT IN DETAIL
La Petite Robe Noire is a chic, vibrant, and youthful sweet fruity floral. At first whiff, I am immediately reminded of bonbons and fresh fruits, but it's not the type that smells cheap and generic. Actually, it's the only fruity-floral that smells elegant in my opinion!
It claims that it is only made up of two notes: First one is the top note, which is a tart composition of black cherry, rose, and bergamot. Lastly, it has the base note, which is a warm amalgam of black tea and tonka bean. The perfume stays light all throughout, but with a dash of warmth. Staying power is very good for an EDT. It is uncomplicated, easy to wear, can go from day to night, and it's something that would definitely please everyone, especially the younger audience, although conservatives would deem this as "too mainstream for Guerlain." and "not apt to be worn with LBDs". As for me, I love it and that just goes to show that those conservatives are not its target market. :D
FAST FACT: La Petite Robe Noire's flacon reminisces the bottle of two of Guerlain's iconic fragrances, Mitsuoko (1919) and L'Heure Bleue (1912). Quite obviously, the shape is resonant of the perfume house of Guerlain.
Initially, just like the conservatives, I had observed a disconnect between the overall appeal of the fragrance and the nature of the little black dress but the longer I use it, the more it grows on me (and my little black dresses) and the more I understand its main message: Guerlain wants women to break away from tradition and make a statement with the LBD.
