Little Black Dress
I have a new signature scent, and it’s all thanks to my mom! Christmas came a month early when she gave me Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noir on Thanksgiving. I first smelled this deliciously beautiful fragrance in a Sephora catalog (where else?) and instantly fell head over heels in love. I’m quite certain I suffer from a smell and color-related form of synesthesia, and when I tried this perfume, my first thought was, “Black,” like the night sky.
The scent is very heavy, perfectly suited for colder months, and includes black cherries, red berries, licorice, and smoked black tea. This combination results in a wonderful, sweet and smoky fragrance that lasts all day long.
I’ve always been a fan of Guerlain, and wore their now discontinued scent, Meteorites, as well as their cosmetics, on my wedding day. And Insolence and My Insolence are among my most favorite perfumes.
But La Petite Robe Noir surpasses all three in quality and scent, and I am so thrilled with my new little black dress.
