How many people do you know that wear Tresor? I don't even know that answer for myself, but the answer is a lot. The fruity floral is subtle, pretty and just beloved by millions of people. It's one of those "safe bets" for a holiday present.
Lancome is now releasing a new version of this classic fragrance, the new Midnight Rose. This is a deeper more sultry version of Tresor, though it is still sure to be a crowd pleaser. I've been wearing for the last week or so, and it was a big hit with a lot of my friends (especially Donna, who is a huge Tresor fan) and my hubby.
Top Notes: Raspberry, Jasmine, Peony, Blackcurrant bud absolute, Pink Pepper
Middle Notes: Rose Absolute
Base Notes: Vanilla, Musk, Viginia Cedar Essence
This scent is initially a bit heavy on the rose and Pink Pepper notes. Really, for the first 5 minutes there is a lot of pink pepper. Which I normally don't like, but it is short lived, and the rose seems to temper it down a tad. After the dry down, the Pink Pepper faded quite a bit, enough to still be present but not overwhelming, the rose definitely stuck around. I could pick up a little more of the raspberry, which comes in as a fresh and fruity note. The Musk is a bit stronger at this point as well, making it a bit sultry, warm, "come get closer to me" but without screaming sexy scent.
I think this scent overall is a bit strong, so I've been spraying it and then walking through rather than spraying it directly on myself. As well, the staying power is fantastic, it lasts throughout the day!
This is a great holiday gift. I keep seeing it in combination with Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara. Which seems much cooler than fragrance with... scented soap. Or a cosmetic bag that you won't use. Definitely worth checking out, especially for all of the Tresor lovers in your life!
