My mum always used to wear this perfume when I was younger and my sister recently bought me a bottle as a present. You can buy the Eau de Toilette for 30ml for £36, 50ml for £52 and 100ml for £72, so as you can see its not the cheapest
It is presented in a pyramid shaped bottle with a pull off lid and a vaporiser to dispense the Eau de Toilette, which works well and sprays a decent amount each time. The overall scent of Tresor is quite sweet and it can be a little over powering if you use too much. It has rose and apricot blossom top notes with peach, Lilly of the Valley, vanilla, heliotrope and iris, so some pretty hefty floral notes. The base notes of Tresor bring it down a bit by including sandalwood and musk, so overall you can see that Tresor can pack a punch in the scent department.
I tend to wear Tresor occasionally and it is a nice addition to my perfume collection, it is however, a little over powering for everyday use and I would recommend this as an evening perfume, as a little goes a long way. Overall I would recommend this perfume to those that like sweet, heavy floral perfumes. It is long lasting and a few sprays on your pulse points will last for hours.

This perfume, Tresor by Lancome Paris, is a brilliant, summery scent for women. It has a very pretty bottle and case which gives this perfume a very attractive appearance, in an upside-down pyramid shaped glass bottle, and a pink interior perfume showing through and a matching pink case.
The scent is also very admirable however; you could describe it's scent as being very fruity and light, without smelling cheap or too strong, although the scent is evidently there when you are wearing this perfume. This perfume also smells a bit like flowers that come out in summer. Summing up the scent is difficult although it probably smells most like peaches mixed with sweet smelling flowers. This scent is undeniably sweet but also sophisticated smelling which makes it classy as well as attractive. This scent is a great scent for young women as it is sophisticated and classy, but also suitable for women who are quite young too. The scent gives a very 'fresh' feeling when worn. This Tresor scent is a perfect scent for the summer as it has a light, airy, sweet, feminine and classy smell that is laidback.
****Lancôme: Trésor ****
The lancome counter in boots currently has 2 offers on-buy 3 products and get £10 back in boots and get a free gift when you buy any 2 products. I am a really bigperfume fan so i ended up buying three and this is one of the ones i got.
As i said in a previous review Lancome are a high quality brand that sell a range of products including perfume,makeup and hair care. They have been in business over 70 years!!!!
As far as i know there isn't anything else in this range(scent wise) but you can get body lotions,body powder,body crème and bath/shower wash.
The box is a nice pink/orange colour. I really like the shape of the bottle for this, it is quite unusual and pretty to look at. If i get through the perfume i will keep the bottle!!! The bottle is like an upside down pyramid with a black neck and the lid is a chunky square. The name of the perfume is written on the neck of the bottle and since it is see through you can see that the perfume is an orange colour. The overall look of the bottle is that it looks expensive and is of high quality.
My first impressions of this perfume is that it smells expensive/elegant. The first thing i could make out on this was the smell of roses and lilac. The smell does remain for quite sometime and it stays the same.
It does have a romantic/sensual smell to it so i would probably use it as an evening scent.
**Price/where to buy**
The price for the 100ml bottle from boots is £66.50. This is the most expensive item in the range but i think if you like this perfume it is worth it as it will last a long time.
I would say that this perfume is not for people who like girlie scents as it has a sophisticated smell to it.
I was first introduced to this lovely Eau de Parfum as a gift,
It was launched in 1990 and was baptised the "Hug-me" fragrance by its creator, Sophie Grossman,
Tresor is a sharp, floral, oriental fragrance with Low notes of amber and musk, blended with apricot and lilac.
I have had many positive comments from both sexes on its attractive fragrance,
The lovely sweet smell lingers all day and is suitable for day or evening and I would say for any age group too.
This is a lovely light floral fragrance which is not overpowering and comes in an attractive diamond shaped, clear glass, spray bottle containing the amber coloured perfume,
I am on my third bottle of this gorgeous fragrance and plan to replace it for as long as it sells!
I have seen Tresor selling in a variety of gift sets with moisturiser and body creams ect....
But for a 30ml bottle on its own it will cost from £24.00 to £30.00.
And comes in a lovely salmon pink marbled effect box.
This would make a lovely gift for any young lady/woman and is highly recommended.
Armand Petitjean, a French perfumer and cosmetician, launched Lancôme in 1935 with five fragrances. Although none of the original five are still sold by the company they continue to create new perfumes and cosmetics based around the ideal of the rose that so fascinated Petitjean, and is now the company's logo. Lancôme appear to strongly associate particular models or actresses with the launch of perfumes. In 1990 Isabella Rosselini helped to launch Trésor, meaning 'treasure' - apparently attempting to merge the ideas of intelligence, action and audacity with this particular fragrance. The perfume comes in a warm peach/amber box that contains an upside down pyramid shaped clear glass bottle with a black ring around its neck and a chunky square see-through lid. (Or slight variations on this design). Through the glass a slightly darker peachy-amber liquid can be seen. Across one corner of the bottle Trésor is printed in the same flowing script as appears on the outer packaging. Presumably attempting to evoke the idea of the perfume being a jewel or the 'treasure' of its name. Lancôme make many claims about the perfume being closely associated with its logo saying 'It's a round bouquet in which the rose prevails', describing it as having 'flowery, fruity and powdery amber notes'. My description would be slightly different. It is a warm, sweet fragrance that is especially suited to the Winter months. Although despite this the freshness that remains in the scent stops it being too overpowering to prevent it being worn during the Summer too. A light muskiness permeates giving depth to the smell and helping it linger throughout the day. I would however, agree with the manufacturers that there is a rounded flowery smell and that the richness of amber does apply. The range of layers displayed make it suitable for use throughout the day as well as during the evening. After a full da
y of wear the scent does tend to fade, becoming almost unrecognisable from the wrists; with only the scent on the body remaining. This can be quickly refreshed with a squirt rubbed onto both wrists and possibly one to the neck, reviving the squirts applied to chest, neck and wrists first thing in the morning. This year I decided to be adventurous and try Kenzo's "L'eau par Kenzo". Despite this having a lovely light aroma, returning to Trésor with the disappearance of warm weather was wonderful, and truly reminded me of why this has consistently been my favourite scent. Trésor may be flowery but it is not a perfume for girly girls. There is something self assured and no nonsense about the smell. It is a perfume that is for women who are assured and confident enough about their femininity that they do not need to spend hours in front of a mirror to look and feel attractive. _______________________________________________________________ Trésor is available as eau de parfum, shower gel, body cream, body milk, soap, deodorant mist and skin mist. It is often possible to see the perfume sold in special gift packs including body milk and/or shower gel. My skin is sensitive and has never reacted with this product. Tresor normally retails at £30-£35 for a 30ml bottle.
My Boyfriend bought me a bottle of this; a couple of Christmas’s ago, it was actually in a gift set, with a body cream, which was gorgeous and smelt exactly the same as the perfume itself. Since then I have had about three bottles of the perfume itself, I like this perfume as it is not a strong overpowering perfume, as I have never been a lover of strong perfumes, so this was ideal for me. Tresor, is a sweet floral fragrance with a hint of lilacs, and is suitable for either a nice romantic night in, with you boyfriend, as well as everyday use, as it really is a sweet smelling fragrance, and I also think it is really suitable for any age group. The bottle design itself is quite pretty and looks nice sitting on your dressing table; I believe Tresor, was originally out in the 1950’s when it was created by a lady called Sophie Grosjman and was brought back out in the 1990’s due to high demand. The cost of Tresor varies from shop to shop, but the cheapest I have ever seen it was £23.00 for a 30ml bottle in Index Stores and I have also seen the 50ml bottle for £28.00 in Asda Superstores. I would like to add, if you can get your hands on the gift set, with the body cream in it, get it as you’ll love it, the last time I seen this set in the shops, it was selling at about £40. I would like to add that any guys out there wanting to buy their girlfriends a bottle of perfume for a gift buy this, as she’ll love it.
Nostril assault should be made a criminal offence, punishable by death...or at least something quite nasty. I recently had my nostrils assaulted when my Aunt (who works in a perfume department) gave me some free samples of this perfume by Lancome. I spritzed a little on my neck and wrists, only to find I was sneezing and coughing from the hugely overpowering stench of, what I can only describe as, rotting rose petals. You know when you have a vase of flowers and after a few days the water goes a bit nasty if you forget to change it...and the flowers themselves are a bit too 'ripe' smelling? Well, now imagine a bowl of peaches left on a sunny window ledge for weeks. Mix up the flowers and peaches in a big bucket and take a whiff...this is 'Tresor'! It's *so* cloying and, I think, old fashioned smelling. It's like nothing I've ever smelt before. I would imagine Bette Davis in the film 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?' film wearing this perfume. It's fake and chemical-ish and made me sneeze as if I had hayfever. I jumped straight in the shower and scrubbed myself clean! Now, the really weird thing is, I have smelt other people wearing this and it's lovely on them! It only goes to show you can never judge a perfume by how it smells on a friend or one of those 'scratch and sniff' panels in magazines. You really have to wait and see how it reacts with your skin, according to the acidity levels and so on. So thanks, Auntie Sandra, but I'm very glad I didn't actually buy a bottle to find out I hated it! Maybe you will be one of the people it smells lovely on... I know I'm not!
