Watch the video for Guerlain’s new fragrance: trés trés chic

If you haven’t seen the video for Guerlain’s new fragrance, La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche you are in for a treat.

It is the magical work of Kuntzel + Deygas, the same visual artists who made the opening sequence for Steven Spielberg’s film, Catch Me if You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio. The fragrance itself is just as enchanting, inspired by the indispensable little black dress. Guerlain’s perfumer, Thierry Wasser, says: “In its way, a perfume is an invisible dress, playing on us dressing ourselves to reveal our personalities.”

Then is followed by roses, a Guerlain signature, and finishes with a surprising note of pistachio with a hint of bitter almond and tonka bean.

This is the fourth fragrance in the La Petit Robe collection and it’s definitely our favourite but what do you think?
