Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Guerlain in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Guerlain fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Guerlain perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Guerlain brand might see it.

La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette c2012

La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette by Guerlain: launched in 2012.

From Guerlain:
"I am absolutely essential and utterly irresistible. I am the chic and very glamorous perfumed creation by Guerlain. My fragrance is a fresh and swirling floral lace, embroidered with sparkling fruity notes. My glass showcase is the legendary "heart-shaped" bottle, which has been boldly reinterpreted with a modern touch. Its crystalline transparency, tinged with a delicate, powdery pink, reveals a silhouette of my sophisticated little strapless dress, ready to dance! 

Fragrance Composition: 

Fresh Floral.
Fresh, delicate, swirling. 
In the first wink, a bouquet of rose, jasmine and orange blossom takes flight to a delicate melody. The second twirl takes place as cherry, apple and blackcurrant enter the stage, refreshed by explosive green notes. Finally, white amber temptations are revealed and a cloud of white musks envelops the ensemble in a cosy halo. 
My Pygmalion, Thierry Wasser, is smitten, as if seeing me again for the first time. One year after our encounter, he asks me to dance in order to reveal more mischievous and carefree facet of my personality. In this more swirling orchestration with its "plunging neckline," he adorns me with fresh floral lace, embroidered with sparkling and fruity notes."

So what does the Eau de Toilette smell like? It is classified as a fruity floral fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: rose, green notes and jasmine
  • Middle notes: sour cherry, apple and orange blossom
  • Base notes: patchouli, white amber and white musk

In 2013,  a new limited edition bottle was released featuring a different image on the bottle by Kuntzel & Deygas. The illustrations show a modern Parisian Cinderella who, after midnight, sneaks back home (to her gorgeous glass bottle) on her tiptoes with stilettos in hand.

2014 brought us another limited edition bottle. K√ľntzel & Deygas have interpreted how a star is preparing for the red carpet in the new illustration.
