Lancome Tresor Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Pleasant sensual scent, lasts well
The bottle for this Trésor fragrance is pretty and unique, designed to give the impression of a precious treasure. It is a square bottle that tapers down - rather like an upside-down pyramid. The full-size bottle is a more detailed version of my miniature. Inside the clear glass bottle you can see the pinky-brown liquid. The bottle is very sophisticated but it looks to me something like an older woman might have.
Trésor is a floral, fruity, powdery amber fragrance. The fragrance is described as 'luminous' and is meant to give a "refined and radiant" aura to the woman wearing it.
The top notes of the fragrance are rose petals and apricot blossom, settling into middle notes of peach tree flowers. The base notes are lily of the valley, vanilla, heliotrope and iris.
When I first smelled the fragrance I thought it was a sensual, sophisticated scent. I thought it was quite rich and could imagine an older woman wearing it (which didn't stop me giving it a go!).
I don't know what many of the ingredients in this perfume are supposed to smell like, however I could certainly detect the rose petals when I first applied the perfume. There was also a lighter hint of something else which I assume to be the apricot blossom. Later on the perfume settled into a fruity floral which I assumed to be the peach tree flowers. There was certainly a powdery undertone. I could detect the vanilla during this time which came out more strongly later on. I don't know what the other elements of the base notes are supposed to smell like but there was definitely some floral in there.
The perfume lasted around 6-7 hours on my skin. This is better than a lot of fragrances but not as good as some other expensive perfumes. On my clothes it lasted a bit longer - until the end of the day.
I didn't find that this perfume was overpowering or too strong, though I thought the scent could be quite sickly if it was too strong so this was just as well. I don't know if this is because I had a miniature dab bottle - a spray might be stronger as spray lands everywhere!
***Price and Availability***
Lancome Trésor is widely available at Boots and other department stores. It is quite pricey at £34 for a 30ml eau de toilette and £47 for 50ml. You'd probably be better off getting the eau de parfum at £36 for 30ml and £52 for 50ml as eau de parfum is the more highly concentrated version of the fragrance.
This isn't one of my favourite fragrances but it is a pleasant sensual scent. The combination of vanilla and unusual florals make this perfume stand out. I think it is one for slightly older women but younger people might like it too. I definitely think it is more of an evening perfume and would be suitable for all seasons.
