Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum Couture: Review

Disclaimer: I received a sample of this perfume to review.
Good evening guys, I have a mini review of a new fragrance from Guerlain to share with y'all! Guerlain very recently released a new addition to their La Petite Robe Noire (The Little Black Dress) collection, and it's a very youthful and feminine scent.
Housed in an ornate glass bottle with a fading pink print, La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfume Couture is described as a woody floral scent.

Top Notes: Bergamot & Raspberry
Heart/Middle Notes: Rose Essence & Rose Absolute
Base Note: Vetiver, Moss, Tonka Bean, Patchouli

Upon the first whiff of the perfume, I definitely detected a very fruity berry citrus mixture that lasted about 20 to 30 minutes. After which the rose scent is definitely noticeable. The woody undertones of the fragrance are also prominent, even upon the first sniff. Overall I think the scent is more of a woody fruity fragrance than a woody floral fragrance because by the time the berry scent wears off, the woodiness of the perfume overpowers the rose.
So that's my mini review of the La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfume Couture, I personally really enjoyed it, I think it's perfect for someone looking for something fresh and youthful with a bit of a darker woody twist.

La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfume Couture ($74 for 30ml, $96 for 50ml, 130 for 100ml) is available in department stores and online.

So what do you guys think, is this a scent that you would wear? What is your favorite scent? Let me know in the comments below!
