The L'Extrait concentration is the closest one to the original formulation of La Petite Robe Noire, the one that Guerlain put into exclusive distribution before making the wise decision to transform it into a mainstream creation. The emphasis is put back into the cherry,almond and licorice instead of musk and patchouli (which made the current edp closest to other modern chypre fragrances). This way, La Petite Robe Noire returned to have that cherry tartelette aroma that made it so mouthwatering. Altough you can make the connection with Lolita Lempicka, i think that they stand appart from each other because on Lolita the licorice and violet aromas are much more noticeable than here. For an extrait, it has a good longevity on skin, while sillage seems moderate (but it was since the first LPRN too). Great cherry fragrance, one of my favorites. Too bad that it's only made in 7,5ml, i wanted a 30ml bottle!
