Guerlain, with the legacy of five generations of Perfumers who have succeeded one another, have again perpetuated another perfume to extend one of its most successful fragrance lines, La Petite Robe Noire.



La Petite Robe Noire, or The Little Black Dress, is back, with a new fragrance and a glamorous new outfit, embodying the very essence of Parisian glamour. Behold, La Petite Robe Noire Couture -- the third one to add to the existing Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum variants. 

Last week, the Guerlain PH team gathered beauty bloggers to experience La Petite Robe Noire with exciting activities. 



1st Activity: What's your La Petite Robe Noire Personality? 



We were each given questionnaires and sticker names for every A, B or C answers. Afterwhich, they revealed which personality we have. I ended up having answers of mostly C's. 



Here are the corresponding personalities: 

A: La Petite Robe Noire EDT : Mischievous and Cheerful

B: La Petite Robe Noire EDP : Elegant and Feminine


C: La Petite Robe Noire Couture: Fascinating and Glamorous



It’s quite interesting to know which of the variants would suit us, don’t you think? Take the test too and see which one is your personality and let the results of the test decide for you which one you should purchase! 

Before I head on to tell you about our next activity, let me just give a brief background about La Petite Robe Noire: 

La Petite Robe Noire is a cross between cabaret costume and Parisian revue with a touch of the catwalk chic. It was created with the idea in mind that it is an enchanted wardrobe, interpreted as an entire range of scents for all moods and times of day.



For the newest variant, Couture, Thierry Wasser, master perfumer, has reinterpreted the fragrance with new ingredients, bringing the skills of couture perfumery to the service of Haute Couture. This new variation evokes a full-length dress, embroidered with raspberry, stitched with fresh floral notes and embellished with highly refined woody notes. Bright raspberry, a shower of petals and notes of wood will make heads turn in an interpretation that will fulfill your wildest dreams. 

2nd Activity: Makeup Challenge 

We were all asked to draw from a fish bowl a makeup look to do: EDT, EDP and Couture. It’s up to us how we want to interpret the scent as a makeup look and were given 15 minutes to do it, with 3 mandatory Guerlain makeup products to use. We were also given random models. 

I drew the La Petite Robe Noire Couture, which was fortunate because I wanted to do something haute couture that day. This was the look that I created on my model Julia. 



I explained that the first thing that came to my mind when I hear couture is the runways. So I based my makeup look on the makeup that we usually see on the runways. I played on contouring, using highlighting and shading techniques to make Julia look more modelesque and high fashion. I maximized the use of the three limited products I was allowed to use: Terracotta Four Seasons, Rouge G in Geraldine and Cils D'enfer Maxi Lash Mascara. 

Out of the 12 looks, one winning look per category was chosen. Angela of lushangel.com won the EDT category for her fresh take; Martha of thebeautyjunkee.com won the EDP category for creating a look that can transition from day to night; and I happily won the Couture category for the runway look I created on Julia. 


Our winning looks are now immortalized on paper as we were asked to recreate them on Guerlain consultation sheets for their customers to use as guides whenever they visit their counters. It’s such an honor!


Thanks Guerlain for the prize and gifts!
