Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire

Have you ever desired to purchase a perfume based on the design of the bottle alone? Please say yes. It will make me feel better. HaHaHa

Well, I haven't purchased it yet, but that is the way I feel about Guerlain's new version of La Petite Robe Noire (the little black dress) perfume and bottle. I fell in love the first time I saw the pink & black design. I even love the design of the box it comes in and samples. I love perfume bottles. I love perfume bottles more than perfume. HaHaHa I want to collect all of the exquisite ones and put them on a mirrored tray or cake stand... yes, I said cake stand. HaHaHa

How does the new version of Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire perfume smell? I don't know. HaHaHa I haven't sampled it. But Guerlain states the PINK NOTES are of black cherry, bergamot & rose and the BLACK NOTES are of patchouli, black tea & tonka bean. Has anyone tried it? Is it a buy or pass? Thoughts?

Not only is the bottle cool, but they also came out with a super-illustrative, finger-poppin, whimsical Christmas winter ad campaign.To view how they made the video and for more details regarding the notes of the perfume click HERE. Tell me your thoughts on Guerlain perfume and/or this ad campaign! Wishing everyone a SCENT-sational weekend :)

It looks great, but I haven't tried it yet either. I have had some nasty surprises though with perfumes where the bottle looked great and the stuff inside smelled absolutely hideous! Careful! ;-) Have a great weekend xo

Natalia | Look-A-Porter said...

If you do buy it, please post a review. :) You know if it was up to me, I'd have a whole collection of perfumes just for the bottles... :) I think they add a charming touch to the interior and some are so so so pretty! For example, I don't like the smell of Chanel No 5, but I adore the bottle...

Happy weekend sweet Kim,

I tell you, I'm obsessed with perfume bottles, I'll go straight over to one just for the bottle, so you are not alone!! And I went to this one because of the bottle too..hahahah!! It smells lovely to me, but it was a while since I smelled it and I usually have to smell a perfume a few times to make sure I like it fully as I know scents can change. But, first smell of it, I liked it :))) The bottle is dreamy...I may go back and smell it again after this post to make sure it smells as good as the first time!! The bottle is precious, I could have a perfumery, I tell ya!! I love it!! You decorated here for Christmas, hahaha!! I love it!! Too precious!! Have a wonderful Friday darling girl!! <3 <3

Project Curve said...

of course we all do that kim!i even have a relative who won't buy a perfume if they don't like the bottle..buy this and post a review?

Outside Looking In said...

I love to look and smell at department stores at Chrismastime! I haven't seen this one or smelled it! I'll be waiting for your review lol! Have a great weekend!

Mica said...

This is such a lovely bottle! I haven't seen this one yet to have a smell in store - I will need to keep my eyes open!

The last perfume I bought a lady sprayed on me as I was shopping and I loved it, but was so sad the bottle looked so plain! haha. I bought it anyway for the smell.


Style Journey said...

Ooh! The bottle is really pretty. You know what they say, "It's all in the packaging." If it looks pretty you might want to try it

MaysaAndSunshine said...

No wonder why you want the bottle Kim. It sure is whimsical and lovely. I am a sucker for packaging at times. Dont we all make that mistake?...Ha. The combo of fruit and flowers soubd good, wonder if it really smells good. I havent bought perfume in years but i think i will add one to my Christmas list.

Have a great weekend Kim.

Megan said...

Ah yes, the power of packaging! I've definitely bought perfume (and makeup for that matter) solely based on cute packaging :D GUILTY!

TheTinyHeart said...

The bottle is really cute with the dress on it! I don't really wear perfume unless it's a fancy occasion but I have bought things based on packaging alone!Have a great weekend, Kim!

I'm not really a perfume person. But I do love the pretty bottles. I've always wanted to get some just to put on display on the dresser!

The bottle is just lovely! I can see why you're so enamored by it Kim :) The description of the fragrance does sound nice though. I'm often attracted to the pretty bottles that scents come in as well and if I just went by that I'd have a dresser filled with pretty bottles haha!

Thanks for all your support! It's amazing that a week ago we were all bundled up in front of a space heater and now we're in shorts and t-shirts.

Have a fab weekend sweets!

KIM! I LOVE this Guerlain campaign, SO FABULOUS and right up my alley, you know, with the illustration and fantasy! Adored it so much, had to watch the video twice (and will be doing it more, I guarantee you!). Thanks for sharing it with us, as I hadn't seen it yet and it's too good to miss!!! (and yes, I DO buy things for the way the packaging looks! lol but only if the item is just as good as the packaging!) Adore! Have a great weekend, sweet and thanks for stopping by this week! ~xoSandy

Mighty B said...

This is the cutest bottle! And yes, I'd say the looks of the product definitely are a deciding factor in me buying a bottle. I'm in need of some more and department stores can be so overwhelming.


Diva In Me said...

Yes, I definitely know how you feel. I can remember buying Giorgio Armani Code Femme for the bottle. Eventually I kind of like the scent too =D


Oh to Be a Muse said...

I must agree, this campaign is totally adorable and I have thought about purchasing a perfume simply based on the cute bottle design alone.

Jacqueline said...

You are not alone! I always wanted Miss Dior Cherie because of the pretty bottle, but I don't like the way it smells! Oh well...



Lena L said...

i sampled it briefly and so wanted to love it because of the adorable campagne..but it did not work for me.
i wanna try it again when the full winter is here..hoping for it to work for me then.. ;)

LiveLaughDecorate said...

bottle look amazing. But I'm super sensitive about perfumes so it'll definitely be smell over looks for me mama. TGIF! and have a fab weekend.

Hi Kim, this is such a pretty bottle! Have a great long weekend!

Actually I have often (read: more than twice) purchased a perfume based on the design of the bottle. However it turned out to be horrifying 2 out of 3 times. :P

Gosh, pink and black have this magical effect know? That looks very tempting. :P To buy..I can see where you are coming from.

I have seen it been promoted in at least 10 countries... tried it about 4 times and even though the packaging is cute and i love the colors and its so girlie, the smell is no tfor me.

littlemissandrea said...

I'm totally always tempted to buy things just because of the way they look! Take Sephora's Hello Kitty line for example - gets me everytime LOL

Sam said...

You're right he bottle is gorgeous and the elements of the perfume sound really intriguing and decadent. Heres hope for an early Xmas present! P.S Super cute new profile pic!

The Hipster Owl's Bookshelf said...

Oh my!! I love it! :)

I too have this thing for looking at perfume bottles!! Dreamyness!!

And yes, the black themed plus Paris background in this one made me go wild! :) So cute! !

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

What a fun bottle - and who can go wrong with pink and black and a scent with cherry in it?!

Unknown said...

Wow, I love the design!! I'm pretty particular about smells, so I never really buy based on the bottle alone, but it can definitely tip the scale for me!

Love the video and campaign. I have been tempted to buy a scent from the bottle design, but due to allergies I must, try it and smell it first, haha! It does sound like it will be a good one though! Have a lovely weekend Kim! xx

PAPS said...

It is gorgeous but I do like to know the smell to buy it.

Coco said...

Kim please post the picture of the cake stand with the perfume bottles and thank you for this sweet idea!I haven't tried it but your enthusiasm is contagious.Have a great weekend honey.hug hug hug Coco

S said...

Just like you , I have a habit of buying some products just by looking at the design -I buy perfumes, soaps, sometimes lotions and also tea leaves based on the bottle/packet design !
You know , sometimes, I do not even throw away the packet/bottle even after they are empty and there is nothing left inside !
Although I have never used Guerlain, i have this fascination for French products, design and packaging. I loved the Miss Dior ad on T.V. -it used to be aired long time back . I also love another French product by the name " L'Occitane". I have used their hand cream and lotion and these products are great !
Thank you for your lovely feedback in my blog. Our festive season was going on , so I was bit busy. But this Thursday, we celebrated our final festival -so no more festival are there now. Hopefully, I will get some time to devote myself to blogging now !
Wishing you a lovely weekend !

Everything about this perfume is fabulous! I got a sample a while back and I love it as does my hubby. It's very feminine and sophisticated with a dark side, it's perfect for both day or night. It makes me think of Paris, the ad reflects the scent very well. Another fantastic post Kim :)

Unknown said...

This design looks soo great! Love the sketch with the tour eifel :)
Hope the parfume is as good as its design :)

Kim, wah, these pictures are amazing. The design concept that they went with is so sweet and organic - gotta love how the woman is made of brush strokes. So elegant. And hahah, I always let my eyes judge first (which can be a bad thing, I admit!). If it's visually appealing, I almost instantly wanna buy it.

I usually don't buy perfumes without trying them (some scents make me sneeze) BUT I'm as tempted as you just by looking at this beautiful perfume bottle and their campaign!

Jo said...

You are definitely not alone, Kim. I really dig perfume bottles. In fact I used to collect miniature perfume bottles. I don't care how unpleasant the perfume smell after many years, I just continued displaying the bottles. However after shifting into my in-laws place, I left the bottles at my family place.

I dif this Guerlain bottle too. Love the illustration and the ad! Good marketing! Now I wonder how it smells.

LyddieGal said...

a perfume bottle can be a fixture in your room for years, why not buy the pretties bottle you can find?
even if it doesn't get used... haha.

Gurlean is one company that has fabulous packaging. The Shalimar bottle is a classic for collectors. Avon was popular at one time for it's exquisite packaging. About Avon's fragrances though--overall, meh--they were okay though didn't live up to their bottling . . . .

Yes, I have definitely considered purchasing perfume because I liked the bottle! It's always nice to have something pretty sitting atop your vanity!

miss b said...

I love the images you have chosen, Kim. I've seen this perfume advertised in a few magazines and was immediately struck by the very cute bottle and the name too. I must try it in our local department store. I have my favourite
perfumes but it's good to try something new too.

Yes! The look and shape of the bottle definitely factors into my purchasing decision. It's a definite art piece on my dresser :)
