Aka the little black dress

If you know me, you know that I have a thing for perfumes which aren’t commonly known amongst my friends and family. I think this is also reflected in the blog, as perfume reviews are of those which not many of your will be aware of and I hope that after reading such reviews you get sniffing next time you’re out shopping (just make sure you don’t do it next to strangers). Currently exclusively to Selfridges is Guerlain’s new fragrance La Petit Robe Noire* and this is a fragrance which you will love.
It’s a given fact that every woman needs a LBD in their wardrobe and Guerlain have captured this essence and bottled it up into a fragrance with Tonka bean, vanilla, iris and patchouli, this perfume is sweet, yet not over powering but still knows how to make an impact. Personally I love “strong” lasting scents for nights out, and this scent lasted a good 3 hours before I felt the need to reapply, which I think for a more lighter fragrance is very good going. I also tested this out at work and only reapplied at lunchtime on 1 of the 4 days purely as I was going to a meeting. From applying this at 7am you could still smell it on my skin at 3pm which is very long lasting for a perfume. This received quite a few compliments from the women in my office as they described the scent as nothing which they had smelt before- which for a perfume is definitely a compliment.
As you can see the bottle I received is your standard perfume sample, however do not be fooled by the size of the bottle- I’ve had this for 2 weeks now, worn it 4 days for work (including a lunch time refresh) and for a night out and I’ve still got a third of the bottle yet. It’s also worth noting that the shape of the sample bottle is a smaller version of the full sized bottle- how chic would this look sat on your dressing room table?
La Petit Robe Noire costs from £42 for 30ml and is currently exclusive to Selfridges both instore  and online
