My First "Robe"
Smells just like I expected, knowing Guerlain's style: sweet blueberry vanilla opening with a white musk finish. The cotton candy is divine, not sugary. The vanilla is smooth and mellow, tying the whole thing together with a bow. The drydown is some kind of soft wood and musk but is not harsh in the least, nor medicinal. There is a nod to the original LPRN but the licorice is gone and the cherry is transformed into blueberry, fitting in with the bottle color. This smells a lot more refined than the usual flankers. Those who did not like the tea/licorice/raspberry of the original will not have to worry with this edition. It reminds me a little of Angel (in a good, much more refined way) as well as Guerlain's own Mon Exclusif.
