Since I started working in beauty I’ve been paying more attention to smells. Now everything I touch I have to smell first. Every perfume, every makeup product, every skin cream has to be approved by my nose, a nose with high standards.
Back in December when I shot some photos for Elle Magazine I had the opportunity to get a whiff of La Petite Robe Noire eau de parfum. It was all right. Nothing too special, but decent enough. I guess it was more a Joseph Gordon Levitt than a Ryan Gosling, if you know what I mean. But then last week somebody introduced me to La Petite Robe Noire eau de toilette de Guerlain. And hello, it turns out Joseph Gordon Levitt has a hot brother who looks just like Ryan Gosling! I know I’ve told you before that my favorite perfumes are Elie Saab eau de parfum and eau de toilette, but now I think they have to move to the couch and make room for the new guy. They are still good, but now I will probably only use them when La Robe Noire eau de toilette is out of town.
I’m not gonna tell which notes the perfume has, because, honestly, who cares? All you need to know that it was approved by my nose.
Thanks, Guerlain, for engraving my name on the bottle. Now do it on Ryan Gosling!
