I love perfume. You only need to look at my dressing table to know that. I have far too many bottles, many which are just to pretty to use.
I mean, is it acceptable to keep empty bottles - or am I on the road to ending up on one of those TV programmes about desperate hoarders? Let's hope not.
This little beauty from Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire, Little Black Dress - is another beautifully packaged gem.
The fragrance inside? Not really my cup of tea, if I'm honest. It's quite overpowering, a little too heavy for me.
As far as fragrance notes go, here's what Guerlain say:
"Sexy, and light as a champagne bubble, the scent features melt-in-your-mouth macaroon, the tang of the Sicilian lemon, a tender almond kiss, and a touch of licorice. An armful of roses adds elegance, while smoked tea and patchouli give it character. And for a soft velvety touch, a caress of Musk and Vanilla. "
Melt in your mouth macaroon, eh? Sounds fancy schmancy - and it certainly looks it.
Have you tried this fragrance? I can certainly recommend Guerlain's Insolence (smells just like parma violets), but unfortunately, this one's not for me.
If you like it, it's available from Selfridges now.
