Guerlain have launched a new flanker to La Petite Robe Noire (Little Black Dress) introduced in 2009 (see review.) It is called La Petite Robe Noire 2. It was composed by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser who in the press materials is portrayed as a near-couturier,
"Make me a little black dress. A companion for special and simple occasions that will boost my confidence! Modern, simplified with fine, minimal lines… A straight cut that goes straight to the heart! This is how I want my fragrance!” This was the desire of the decidedly chic woman who sought Thierry’s designing abilities."...
The fragrance structure is compared to that of a "crinoline pyramid," a couture Frederick-Worth-like sensation one finds in the classically manufactured Guerlain fragrances even when they are new, as for instance for L'Instant Magic.
The Eau de Parfum opens on top notes of Calabrian bergamot, Italian lemon, Iranian galbanum followed by a heart of Tunisian orange blossom, Marshmallow and Italian iris. The base notes are leather and white musk.
A 50 ml bottle is priced at $135.
