Too bad that this fragrance is no longer produced... J'aime cette robe pétales!
...because I think Ma Robe Pétales is very noble!

In my vivid imagination I see a dainty crystal doll with ivory skin, her hair braided into plaits... she is so filigree and delicate, her big blue eyes are on the Swedish cake standing on the old silver cake stand. Somehow Ma Robe Pétales reminds me of all this white Shabbychic style. The woman who uses this fragrance looks young and dreamy. These dotted blouses, exhibited bell skirts, all that goes with Ma Robe Pétales.

In the beginning, the gourmand pistachio pushes itself full of nobleness into the foreground. An absolute statement! The natural freshness of the green notes and the feminine orange blossom gently nestle into this creamy tenderness. Sprayed around midday, it will certainly smell for an entire afternoon, even if the pistachio gradually moves generously to the side and makes room for the green notes. In the evening (23.05) I still smell these wonderfully light, green notes! I'm just in love with this fragrance
from Romeo et Juliette:

"Aimer, c'est ce qu'il y a de plus beau
Aimer, c'est monter si haut
Et toucher les ailes des oiseaux
Aimer, c'est ce qu'il y a de plus beau..."

Sensational lightness
I also rate women's fragrances less for technical reasons. But this one I tested with my better half and was impressed.
This freshness and lightness goes only with roses, the citric and what I think, the apricot. All components that can only be found in a women's fragrance, therefore it also works pleasantly sweety.
Bringing apricots as a building block is a good idea and perfect for the summer.
The shelf life is long and the Sillage is not too dominant. In the car or while strolling this scent comes to me pleasantly from next door in appearance.

Fresh, powdery and suitable for every situation.

Pretty&light almond delight
I have to confess that I love the Petite Robe noire-bottles with their various little black dresses on them. When I first bought the scent in Paris, it was still an "exclusive" and only sold in Guerlain boutiques, but back then it already dawned on me that the basic structure of this fragrance would make a gorgeous mainstream topseller. Now, several flankers later, I've grown a bit tired of the trendy reinterpretations which hit the shelves every year, because they seem unnecessary in terms of the art of perfumery (but profitable for the company). Somewhere I read Wasser promised this would be his last flanker on the subject, but never trust a huge perfume house...

The new version marketed as an EAU FRAICHE is supposed to contain a "delicious pistachio note", but it is fairly fleeting and only noticable in the top notes. I get some petalled touches of freesia and jasmine, not much rose or genuine green notes in the heart. The fragrance is lighter and fresher than the EdP or EdT, but the base of white musk and almond coupled with tonka bean develops quite fast and determines the character of the fragrance. There is this milky softness of almond pudding all "La petite robe noire"-variants possess, helping to deliver a very feminine, delicious touch without any hard edges.
This could make a perfect fragrance for a young woman (wearing it myself, I got loads of compliments from childern). Nevertheless, the various flankers don't really differ that much from one another. The EAU FRAICHE has less staying-power than the others and seems to be the softest of them all.

Green in the marketing, not so much in the fragrance
SOTD La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche. Some marketing decisions end affecting user expectations about the product, creating an image that at the end it is not totally corresponded. In creating the latest member of La Petite Robe Noire family, the Guerlain decided to give it's bottle a green color and a second name to it, La Petite Robe Noire Ma Robe Petales, which makes you expect a LPRN version with a greem floral aura amid the almond gourmand signatura. This is not very clearly in the fragrance aura, even tough we have here and there some floral touches and a slightly green suggestion, but it's not enough to create in the aromatic identity what was suggested in the visual one.

Basically, from the little black dress gourmand, this is one that privileges lightness and fluidity and the one that seems more related to the La Petite Robe Noire which was originally launched as an exclusive. The excess patchouli removal and the tonning down of the sugary touch makes it lovely and the green tones, even that quite delicates, are very nice to be noticed. I see a green aroma, citrusy and floral, probably from the combination of orange flower (maybe petitgrain from the leaves) with the bergamot and rose. There is a sheer powdery and bitter part too, that i suppose is the almond flowers since i have already got something similar in other fragrances with that note. The almonds here seem less dense, with a texture that reminds me more of the cherry tartelette aroma that the first version had. The Base favors a more musky impression, with sweet nuances that i think are the tonka in the composition.

If you have high expectations with the pistacchio note, i would say this is a pistacchio that has already appeared in other fragrances, a milkier and sweeter aroma than green and one that ends getting lost between the other notes. The change is not huge here in relation with the original but maybe it's already enough to attract who doesn't like certain aspects of others LPRN but also who loves them and wants another variation in the collection.
