Description

An absolutely essential and utterly irresistible perfumed creation. The legendary 'heart-shaped' bottle has been boldly reinterpreted with a modern touch. Its crystalline transparency, fading from black to powdery pink, reveals the silhouette of the little black dress. The fragrances simple signature enhances and romances several exceptional materials in a bold overdose. Black cherry blinks the first wink. It is illustrated by a clever blend that extends exquisite almond and delicious berries. The second wink takes place as rose enters the stage. Finally, the shadowy temptations of licorice and smoky black tea reveal more of me and lead to irresistible seduction. For the ultimate temptation, the entire creation is wrapped in Guerlinade. Fresh, enigmatic and exhilarating Mischievous and captivating I am the warm spark beneath the sweetness. I am absolutely essential and utterly irresistible. I am the chic and very seductive, perfumed creation by Guerlain.

Directions

- Top Notes: Bergamot, Black Cherry, Almond, Berries

A spring/summer vibrant, very womanly fragrance that will mostly suit a party girl or a business lady (if applied by just a drop) but the end syrupy notes didn't sit well with me

Summary
La Petite Robe fragrance is best described by the protagonist of the Dinner at Tiffany's, if you are the type, then the perfume is definitely yours. Cherry blossom note at the beginning is slightly sweet and saucy, it is a scent of a confident woman who is both still quite young and yet mature enough. The fragrance lasts long, and for 4 hours it is a really pleasant tempting chick one, emboldening you a bit. The bottle is super cool and may be considered a work of art by itself at your make-up shelf at home. This fragrance is quite popular thus if you suddenly run out of it, you may easily find it in the nearest beauty store.
However the final notes of the fragrance are too sweet and powdery for my liking. One time I even had a headache after "wearing" this scent for a whole day. I bet the patchouli note at the end was responsible for that condition of mine since I do not like its smell and the like and tend to have fresh or woody perfumes. However, my husband found La Petite Robe a very lady-like one and complimented me each time I used it. Men are mystery for me indeed :)

Strongest points
Lovely Scent.
Long lasting.
Perfect for Spring/Summer.
Clean soft fragrance.
Hints of Rose, Orange blossom, White amber.
Pretty boutique bottle.
Not a overpowering scent.
Weakest points
Too expensive.
Summary
It really is a perfect spring time fragrance, it's fruity fresh and uplifts the spirits, yet has a slightly musky undertone to it which mellows it out and makes it not too sweet smelling. It's a perfect everyday daytime fragrance.

Delicious fragrance, but not long lasting.

User Reviews

Strongest points
Very distinctive, exotic fragrance. Widely available.
Weakest points
Overpowering to begin, wears away very quickly. Expensive product.
Summary
The first impression of this product is that it is overpowering and exceedingly sweet. However, it is very distinctive and would make a good summer fragrance. The patchouli and slightly smoky hints make this fragrance sultry and delicious. Unfortunately it is quite expensive and the fragrance wears away very quickly, which is disappointing. I dislike the gimmicky packaging intensely.

the reminder of a bakery product might put some buyers off.
Summary
I was surprised when I found I liked this. It does smell of sweet cherries, but for me it works.

I found this sickly sweet. Reminds me of a Cherry Bakewell.
I think the fragrance wore away very quickly which defeats the object. If you wanted to smell of it continuously then you would end up paying a lot of money replacing the bottles.
This isn't one for me, and I definitely wouldn't pay the price they are asking.
