My chemistry is a mean, disagreeable beast, because it can't seem to get along with the fragrances I've been trying lately.
On me, Tresor smells like a fruit salad in a tupperware bowl (plastic-y undernotes) left out in the sun too long. The bottle is lovely and looks elegant on my dresser--that's the best thing I can say about it.
Love it! Dont ever discontinue. Prettiest fragrance. Dont know why people say its strong - its delicate and lovely!
I go back and forth with this scent (depending on my mood, I guess). This scent is more "mature" then others that I use and it is very strong when first sprayed. I like this scent best after about 2 hours when it has faded and I get a subtle "whif" of it throughout the day. So, I guess it is a good thing that Tresor does have staying power, unlike many other scents that tend to fade to quickly. Once you get past the initial "shock" of the strong scent, it is a very nice fragrance- not my all time favorite, but I use it to change things up every now and then.
I think it is a beautiful scent but my goodness is it strong. I get a huge blast of juicy peach and apricot underpinned by lots of roses, no suprises there! It is quite intoxicating but therein lies the problem. Even when I only use one potent spritz it keeps coming at me all day long saying 'remember me? remember me? remember me?' and robbing me of all the fresh air in the vicinity. Now I love stong long lasting perfume (Fracas anyone???) and I love scents with a noticable amount of rose but I think this one is just too much for me. Such a pity! BTW I couldn't decide whether I should give it a 3 or a 4 but I decided with 4 simply because Tresor isn't the problem, I am .........*sniff*........
I love this fragrance. I had worn it off and on for the past 10 years or so. I couldn't afford it while I was in college, so I collected the tiny bottles that came in free gifts, and used them sparingly. My husband bought me a gift set for X-mas and I'm so glad, because I had completely forgotten about Tresor! I get compliments whenever I wear it. As described, it's a "romantic," fragrance that can be heavy if over spritzed. On me it smells like a flowery vanilla. This is a woman's perfume, so like another reviewer stated, if you like fruity candy smells, you're not going to like Tresor.
I'm a bit gutted about this perfume as I used to have a friend who wore it and it smelled beautiful on her. A few years later I saw it on offer so bought a bottle and it smells awful on me so gave it away (must be the skin chemistry thing).
I hate it when that happens!
This is a very warm and sophisticated romantic fragrance. It has rose and other floral notes without being over-the-top, heavy, or old ladyish. This fragrances goes with the new commercial (starring Kate Winslet) perfectly. Will try again. Update: This started out as a wonderfully feminine and sophisticated rose scent but had a very "grandma" powdery effect on me on the drydown. It just didn;t work with my body chemistry, which is sad, however, it is definately worth sampling because it has the potential to be lovely for some. The color of the perfume and the bottle are both gorgeous, though.
I don't know whatever took me so long to try this! I must have pre-judged it at some point and wrote it off as a chypre. God knows why--when I finally sniffed it I discovered it couldn't be further off. Very sweet, yet subdued, I actually find this a soft yet sexy fragrance. Something in it reminds me of sweet cherry vanilla tobacco. I now realize that I knew a woman who always wore the most intoxicating fragrance and I never knew what it was. As soon as I sampled Tresor the light-bulb went off--it was this! I enjoy this on myself, but on her it was magical. The only con for me is that I'm not always in the mood for something this sweet, but when I am, this is just beautiful. Feminine, and just a touch mysterious.
Being an american woman, I often take a step back and really look at our popular fragrances compared to other countries. It's not pretty either, mostly fruit fizz concoctions and fruity florals that just make us look bad, or have no elegance...One thing I don't love is those perfumes have become the staple for american women. Instead of branching out, and trying something new. There are millions of perfumes! Pick something else, and tresor is a classic. Not old lady...I'm 25. I appreciate it, even if I don't wear it every day.
I think anything not "pink sugar" is considered old lady by too many women here. It's sickening, and strange when you don't want to wear anything else than candy, and your past 14 years old.
i was reading the reviews and its funny that a lot of people are saying their moms use it. my mom uses it and it smells so good on her. everytime i hug her i smell it and its comforting. its a mature scent and i tried it on once and it just didn't feel right. i think if you're looking into getting your mom a christmas present this would be a good one.
