First there was La Petite Robe Noire EDP. The “little black dress”… translated as a sparkling fragrance by ‘nose alchemist’ Thierry Wasser for Guerlain. Imbued with a radiant breeze of tonka bean, vanilla, iris and patchouli, its first wink revealed an armful of fresh roses, jasmine and orange blossoms. This was followed by juicy cherry, apple and blackcurrant taking centrestage, further refreshed by a shower of explosive, sparkling green notes. Finally, tender musks enveloped you in their silky embrace – eternal and versatile, just like the little black dress.
Then came La Petite Robe Noire EDT – the sprightly little sister to the original EDP. With fresh, green floral notes and white amber, she waltzed with her lover over the Pont des Arts, where romantic trysts are kept safely under lock and key. She went dancing along the bank of the Seine, then swung beneath the Arc de Triomphe, putting every one she passed under her spell. Both sultry and feminine, sweet and light… the scent to wear with a little black dress, jeans or nothing at all.
And now, Thierry Wasser, creator of these delicious perfumes has invited her to go dancing, so that she could reveal a more mischievous, carefree side of her personality. Luckily for us, visual artists Kuntzel+Deygays are at hand to record their serenade across the alternating beats and moods – in a succession of cheeky illustrations that are so frame-worthy. Ooh la la… let the show begin!
