Guerlain will launch a new flanker to La Petite Robe Noire after the eau de parfum, the eau de toilette, the eau de lingerie and the extrait. La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum aims to please women who value glamour and who wouldn't hesitate to strut on the red carpet - or apparently take on the Eiffel Tower in a feminized version and visual illustration by Kuntzel + Deygas of the famous word by Rastignac taking on Paris, "A nous deux maintenant!"...
The conquering new perfume for women, signed by Thierry Wasser of Guerlain, is reportedly even more chypré than the original to make it feel more dressed up, as the flacon now shows a slitted evening gown rather than a dress.
The upcoming scent tagged as a fruity-floral chypre is said to be lively, sparkling and a little eccentric while retaining part of the character of the original gourmand.
The composition opens on main top notes of bergamot and sparkling raspberry unveiling further a heart of powdery rose, a chypré accord and patchouli. In the base there are notes of vetiver and tonka bean.
Launch date is set for March 2014.
For a bit of background history on this composition, the fragrance was originally created by perfumer Delphine Jelk in 2009 and then reworked upon by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser starting with La Petite Robe Noire 2 in 2011. It was explicitly designed to capture the hearts of a new generation of "Guerlain women" or rather Guerlain girls.
