Sweet and Scentual: Your Little Black Dress Has a New Companion

When deciding on what to wear each morning, there are a few steps that one must take. First, you must decide on an outfit. Second, you must add accessories that complement said outfit and finally, you must add the most captivating accessory, perfume.Whether you are in the mood for a laugh, relaxation, love or something to add a little pep in your step, there is a scent for every mood, season and occasion. All you need to make an impact is a little spritz on your pulse points, the places on your body where blood vessels are closest to the skin and radiate heat which allows the fragrance to be the released into the air.

Nothing is more luxurious than a lovely smelling perfume. Ever since I was a young girl, I have been a lover of perfumes and sweet scents. One of my first fragrances was a set of rose-scented items that included lip balm, soap and body lotion from Crabtree and Evelyn. Whenever I applied my lip balm, lathered up my soap or moisturized my skin with my body lotion, I felt as if I was wrapped in a sweet, warm blanket of rose petals. As I got older, I started to wear "adult" scents and one of the first perfumes that I tried was the musky, smoky and sweet Angel by Thierry Mugler, which you can read more about here.

Although I understand the personal nature that a signature scent has for someone, it is sometimes nice to make a few adjustments and refresh your perfume collection. In comes Guerlain's newest scent, La Petite Robe Noire which translates into, "The Little Black Dress"and is the newest perfume that I have added to my batch of beloved scents. With notes of black cherry and Bulgarian rose, La Petite Robe Noire is a scent that is filled with coquettish flirtation and a little bit of mystery, the perfect combination that exudes warmth making it fitting for the cooler fall season. After wearing my go-to scents, Gucci Flora and Prada Candy for a few years now, it is nice to give a new scent a try and expand my "aroma wardrobe".

Speaking of wardrobe, it is hard not to think of the classic, the sexy and just a little bit of everything, little black dress when waxing poetic about Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire, which is honestly the most fitting companion for your little black dress so check out some of my favourite little black dress looks below (let's not forget my Va Voom Sha Bang Dress)!
