In Review…

I was recently asked how many perfumes I owned and I cringed a little because I didn’t want to admit that I probably have as many perfumes as Carrie Bradshaw has shoes. What can I say, I’m a perfume geek! Everything about them gets me excited. From the inspirational stories from which they were created, to the beautiful bottle they are housed in. I love that first spritz feel and the way they make me feel throughout the day. If I’m wearing a yucky perfume, I feel insecure walking into a meeting, similarly I can feel fabulous in joggers and a hoody if the perfume is good enough! It’s just the way it is!

The latest addition to my collection make me feel like a Parisian hipster! Well, kind of! It’s Guerlain Black Perfecto which is part of the La Petite Robe Noire collection. This collection tends to be quite girly, flirty and feminine, lots of pretty fruity florals with an elegant French twist. Black Perfecto is a little different; it’s moodier, darker and a little edgier. The pretty fresh fruits have been replaced with notes of almond and leather and the floral heart is rich with a melody of roses and rosewater, in all it’s different forms and concentrates. As for the base, it’s dark and spirited with notes of musk, patchouli, leather and black tea. The girl who sips tea and eats macaroons in Laduree by day, is the same girl who rides around the city on a Vesper by night, meeting up with friends in a dark bars in The Marais. She’s still floral, beautiful and chic, but this time, she’s a little edgier, sassier and having a lot more fun! Oh how I love Guerlain!

Guerlain Black Perfecto is out now and available from Harrods, John Lewis and Selfridges.
