Summary: Let's get this out of the way: I love this. So very much. It's one of the few fragrances that made me want more of it after the first try. Wearing this conjures images of young ladies in tulle twirling around. Gorgeous. Like some of the other reviewers, I agree that this isn't a perfume wholly reflecting mature womanhood. It's reminiscent of youth, sliding on the girly side; an embodiment of confident young ladies who have the world at their feet.
Summary: I was feeling bold enough to try something new whilst at the department store today, and sprayed myself with this generously. It could have gone horribly wrong, but I was pleasantly surprised seeing I have only gotten a few whiffs in passing of the EdP and EdT currently for sale. I can only make some general comparisons, but Couture is definitely, decidedly darker than either, and completely devoid of any ditziness usually associated with fruity florals and found in the...
Summary: Fruity, candy vanilla. A lovely bright zippy scent and still somehow formal. I like this one, and I'm not a fan of fruity florals. Can get very sweet on me (my skin amps sweet) so won't be a summer day scent.
Summary: Its price is very nice comparing to the store price. The smell is very special since my friend love it. But the plastic packing was not sealed it made some confusion if it was new or used. And it's also awkward when I brought it as a gift.
Summary: I've worn La Petite Robe Noire several times and i keep thinking of things to write a helpful review. After several wearings i think i can finally offer a good review. Since i first started wearing this the very first thing it reminds me of is tobacco leaves or just downright cigarette smoke. During this phase of the scent it is very masculine smelling. After a while, though, the smokey scent disappears and is replaced by fruits.
Summary: I very nearly passed this one by due to my fruity florals prejudice. I like fruit but in a bowl with ice cream, not behind my ears. Still I got a sample and although I dislike the black cherry topnote, I love the drydown which is spicy and warm. It has a lovely anise note combined with almond. The black tea note prevents it from venturing into sickly territory. All in all, very well worked out and balanced as I would expect from the house of Guerlain.
Summary: I can see why some have compared this one to Lolita Lempicka. Both have that fruity sweetness with a deeper amber type drydown. This Guerlain however replaces the anise note of Lolita for a cherry note that is fruity while not being overly sugary. I love the tea note in this, it is evident from beginning to end. This scent lasted over eight hours on me, so for lasting power and how smoothly the notes went from top to drydown, this fragrance is very well done.
Summary: Wow very unusual ! Smells like sweet incense...just beautiful. I had a tiny sample of this and the first time I wore it my boyfriend said he loved it and it made him think of a 'Maiden'. It's heady, sweet, musky and very sensual. Similar to Lolita. This makes me feel very sexy and is an evening perfume and prob most suited to winter months as it's so warm and cocooning.
Summary: I have not purchased this yet but have sampled it in store (often!) and am planning to purchase this fragrance at some point. I have never been able to wear Guerlain fragrances. As much as I love the history and mystery of some of the "classics" - Shalimar, Jicky (my first "high end" fragrance purchase when I was about 12!), L'Heure Bleu, Chant d'Aromes, etc.
