Guerlain‘s Little Black Dress dares to wear the Perfecto

After having seen the light of day in 2009 at the hands of Delphine Jelk, La Petite Robe Noire was reinterpreted in 2012 by the famous Thierry Wasser, official perfumer of the Guerlain house. From then on, this already cult perfume became known worldwide. Currently, La Petite Robe Noire is the undisputed bestseller of the Guerlain brand. Riding on this trend, the brand continues to reinterpret its scent and transform it according to trends and seasons. La Petite Robe Noire has thus become a lipstick but also a varnish called La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto. This time, it is the turn of a perfume to take the same name …

La Petite Robe Noire, a cult fragrance

La Petite Robe Noire is a world famous fragrance that clearly benefited from a colossal communication campaign when it was released. However, unlike almost all perfumes today, this one has no muse. The Little Black Dress is represented by a small figurine drawn in Indian ink. This literally floods the streets of Paris and our TV screens since its release in 2012. It must be said that its universe is absolutely irresistible! Marking the Champs-Élysées and then the entire planet, La Petite Robe Noire quickly became an icon. Her dancing gait leaves no one indifferent and her clicks of heels echoing on the streets of Paris make women around the world dream. So what about her new rebellious look?

The reinterpretation of the Guerlain bottle

First, let’s start by highlighting the reinterpretation of the visual of La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto. Indeed, the clarity of its bottle of yesteryear has now given way to a fully opaque black lacquer. It is a question of making a nod to the perfecto, leather jacket emblematic of the feminine wardrobe. However, the general shape of the La Petite Robe Noire bottle has not been changed. Directly inspired by the bottles of L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko perfumes from the beginning of the last century, this container has many feminine and romantic attributes. Her sensual comma-shaped shoulders are reminiscent of a woman’s. Its stopper, meanwhile, takes the shape of an inverted heart. The whole is an invitation to come together while having a little cheeky side.

The new recipe of La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto

The recipe for La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto, for its part, owes its existence to the official perfumer of the Guerlain house, Thierry Wasser. Here he has chosen to bet everything on gluttony. Thus, La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto sets off on a blend of juicy cherry and velvety almond. This start is nevertheless embellished with impertinence thanks to the presence of black tea. Then, La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto highlights all its gourmet femininity in a blend of rose and liquorice. Finally, sensuality takes over. The Little Black Dress Black Perfecto ends with a duo of leather and very animal black musk. The patchouli also brings more elegance to the whole recipe while the tonka bean comes to coat it all.
