Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette – Photos and Review

Everything about Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette, from the box, to the bottle, to the juice inside, is pretty and girly. The white box is outlined in pink ribbon detail with the little strapless black dress with pink ribbon prominently displayed, and the delightfully feminine font. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire1

I absolutely adore this bottle. The cap in a modern take on an inverted heart. Around the base of the cap is a Guerlain ribbon detail. The cap closes very securely onto the bottle. The bottle itself is clear glass revealing the soft pink scent inside. La petite Robe noire is on the front of the bottle in black script and the black strapless dress is actually on the back of the bottle. It is a gorgeous presentation.

The scent opens as a fresh floral with notes of jasmine, rose, and orange blossom. This is probably my favourite part of the experience. Mind you I was delighted to discover this scent hangs on to it’s floral nature for the majority of it’s wear on my skin. The fruity middle notes of cherry, apple, and blackcurrent are then revealed. I shy from fruity scents as they tend to get sickly sweet on my skin but La Petite Robe Noire develops beautifully on me and is balanced by a healthy dose of green notes. The dry down continues to warm the scent on my skin with white amber, white musk, and patchouli making it feel even cuddlier. I love smelling this on the neck of my sweater throughout the day. This scent is very long lasting on me and has good sillage.

All told I am loving this very feminine eau de toilette. Guerlain scents and packaging always hold a special place in my heart. I am still devastated they discontinued one of my favourite scents, Vetiver Pour Elle.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette is available now in 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml sizes for $60, $76, and $106 CAD respectively. You can find it at Sephora and The Bay online as well as Guerlain counters.

Guerlain Holiday 2013 Crazy Paris Collection


I am always a sucker for Guerlain but the packaging and presentation, (and the products of course!), that are part of the Guerlain Holiday 2013 collection have really captured my attention. I love the theme of Crazy Paris. Elegance with a Hint of Insolence is a notion that speaks to my heart. Not that anyone who knows me would ever describe me as elegant…possibly insolent. The lacquered black with flashes of pink and orange are just so hot! I am dying to see what the Ultra Violet Tip Coat looks like. Please enjoy the following eye candy, and, if you’re like me, start saving your spare change and making your Christamas wishlist! Only the Rouge Automatiques will be available outside of Guerlain counters. I do miss the days that SDM carried the LE Guerlain. What will I save my Optimum points for now?!

Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in Madame Batifole for Fall 2013 – Photos, Swatches, Review


While I don’t have the exquisite packaging of the Rouge G de Guerlain in Madame Batifole ($51 CAD) to show you from the Guerlain Violette de Madame Collection for Fall 2013, (I’m reviewing a tester version), I can share with you information on the shade and formula of this exceptional lipstick.

In the tube Madame Batifole looks like a deep berry with very subtle violet shimmer. Swatched, and on the lips, it transforms to a truly stunning deep fuchsia that positively glows on the lips. It will certainly have you turning heads.



The formula is exceptional. My lips were quite dry and tight when I went to apply it and I was kicking myself for not prepping my lips first. Turns out it wasn’t necessary anyways as the Rouge G de Guerlain in Madame Batifole simply melted any dryness and tightness away and I was left with lips that felt hydrated and comfortable. While I did experience some transferring this lipstick lasted for well over  four  hours and that was through 2 cups of coffee, snacking, brushing my teeth, and kissing my son. I was really quite impressed at how well this lipstick lasted even though it felt so creamy, silky, and hydrating. I think my favourite thing about Madame Batifole is how my lips looked like they were glowing without any noticeable shimmer or frost. It’s a gorgeous and youthful effect. Even though the Rouge G lipsticks are probably one of the most expensive lipsticks ($49.50 US/$51 CAD) you will come across the are worth the indulgence.
