Summary: The scent wears off after 5 minutes! I had smelled this scent at a duty free overseas and sprayed some on myself before leaving the duty free to smell it later , 24 hours later still on me! Because of this I loved and ordered it only to find the one I bought did not have same potency.
Summary: For Guerlain, I'm very disappointed in this perfume. To me, it smells a little too mature and not very sophisticated. Honestly, I thought it just smelled really cheap and heavy (read: powdery, amber-y, and cloying). As another reviewer mentioned, this is very strong and could definitely be "headache inducing for some.
Summary: I was shocked by this perfume...in a bad way. I have loved most of Guelain's perfumes. Sure I may not choose to wear some of them but I can appreciate them. This...nope no sell. It felt I had strayed into the "celebrity fragrance" section of the fragrance department. Sweet, fruity, blackcurrant...just no from me on this one.
Summary: Wow, Guerlain, WHAT HAPPENED?!! I did not expect this from YOU! The scent is overpowering. Way too much going on! The notes don't blend well, including the picture on the bottle, the name...everything! It doesn't smell like high-end perfume. This is something you could see in drugstores. The scent is cloying. There's no way you can wear this on a date night or black-tie event because people around you will get away.
Summary: Wow! I did not expect THIS from such a great perfume house. To me it's a cheap drugstore perfume scent with the typical artificial chemical note that makes me avoid drug store scents. I can't stand it!
Summary: The venerable house of Guerlain is going down the tubes. La Petite Robe Noire is a dupe of Lolita Lempicka, a truly terrible gourmand. I mean, it's an exact copy. Why in the world would Guerlain go down this road? I made the mistake of spraying it on my wrist in Sephora without even smelling it on a blotter or anything. I couldn't wash it off fast enough.
Excerpt: This perfume is not to my taste at all. It is very very strong smelling, in fact quite overpowering, so much so it gave me a headache. A positive note is that it is long lasting but if it is not to your this is not really a positive. It is extremely floral and in my view would be something that an elderly lady would wear - although others may like it, this is not my style at all and definitely not one I would recommend!
Excerpt: You know when you were 10, and you bought your mum a perfume from a car boot sale thinking it was grown up, but actually it was just awful? That's what this reminds me of. The scent description sounds so promising but it just wasn't for me. Even my toddler said yuck. The bottle is small and feels cheap, and even the name I find unpleasant. I have liked other Guerlain fragrances in the past but this one is plain disappointing.
