Wow! To be honest I wasnt expecting to love this fragrance mostly because I read it had lavender and all I could think was granny perfume but how wrong I was. As a huge guerlain addict I wasnt sure what to expect after their last pillar launch La Petite Robe Noire which I still like but find alittle heavy for everyday wear but I have to say I know this will be my new signature scent. The lavender is definately there at the start but in a soft complimentary way to the vanilla, then the fragrance softens beautifully and sits on the skin for hours! Well done Theirry Wasser (the perfumer).
