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.
I read somewhere that this is in the top 3 best selling perfumes in the U.S. ! I know a couple of friends of mine wore this in high school but I had no idea so popular. I do believe it is a strong ( a bit too strong) somewhat good smelling granny scent. Not for me as it smells too perfumy.
EDIT: I have no idea what i was doing but i reached for a bottle on a vanity tray while chatting with a friend at a store and by accident picked this up and big spray...right on me! It is so so so strong (and generic...on me at least) i felt ill the whole shopping trip. And i usually prefer stronger spicier fragrances!!!
I love the new advertising for this. Kate Winslet in the soft, dewy light so happy to be in love. So I thought this fragrance would be pretty, a little spicy but mostly soft and delicate. It even has rose and lilac notes (which to me are pretty!). But it is LOUD! Nothing about this, to me, is pretty or feminine. It doesn't even seem to exude confidence! It is cloying, and if I ever smelled this on somebody I wouldn't be able to run away fast enough. I will say that the bottle is gorgeous. But it always seems the pretty bottles are an attempt to make up for a terrible juice inside.
This fragrance reminds me of my mom, who passed away when I was 17. It always makes me think of her, so I have a good association with this fragrance. My mom liked heavier perfumes (this, Tabu by Dana, Youth Dew by Estee Lauder) and this is definitely heavy.
I am not much for woodsy scented perfumes, but I have always liked this scent. If you are looking for a light floral, don't buy this! I find this is a very classic, mature perfume - and happy for me, it smells as good on me as it did my mom. I think it just smells so elegant and moments after I sprayed some on (after treating myself to a bottle of it the day before after not wearing it for years), a woman in the market came up to me and asked me what I was wearing because "I just smelled so good!" It also has great staying power and lasts throughout the day. Just keep in mind that because it is so strong, you don't want to spray too much.
The only gripe I have is the bottle. Lancome says on their site that "the bottle is an inverted pyramid, opening up like a rose petal. It is round on the corners, showing the softness and femininity of a woman, and was crafted to be cradled in the palm of her hand." But I find it's a pain in the butt to hold it in the palm of my hand to spray it, but it's too bulky to really hold it another way. I always end up missing and squirting where I don't want it . A slimmer bottle would be easier to manage.
I am glad I picked this up because it instantly brings me back to high school and my mom. I will continue to wear it. :)
Very sharp and headache inducing on me. Not pleasant at all.
I love this fragrance - and it's not really the type of fragrance I go for. Normally, I like warmer, spicier (orientals, pretty much) fragrances, but this one is special to me. This seems to be a love or hate fragrance - either it works with your chemistry or it doesn't. And some days, it doesn't work with mine, but other days (for some reason, usually in cooler weather) it seems to melt into my skin. I usually get the apricot / woody notes, not so much of the floral notes - it is a very woodsy fragrance on me, a bit dry at times. The end notes fluctuate on me - they are either woodsy/floral /musky or a really sweet, soft, vanilla musk. Tresor is a fragrance I will probably always have around.
Tresor has been my signature scent for years. Over the past few months I've been looking for a new scent and I've tried everything. I now have a huge mini collection and I'm constantly trying new fragrances as them come on the market. However, I always go back to Tresor, it is not just perfume - Tresor it melts into my skin, People constantly compliment me on this scent and I forget I'm even wearing it, because it's such a part of me. I can even smell the slightest hint of fragrance on my clothes after I've worn them. It's never overpowering it just seems right for me.
The smell is too strong for me. Won't buy it again. The only good thing about it is that it lasts a long time.
this to me is very strong and overpowering smell,
I had a mini of this back in the early 90's when absolutely everyone was wearing this perfume. I loved it then, but I never re-purchased as I was side-tracked by other scents :-) I recently was able to purchase a huge bottle of the edp very cheaply, so snapped it up. This is a fantastic fragrance and I get masses of roses with apricots, on a warm and musky base. A little of this goes a long way, so it's best not to drown yourself in it (and overpower everyone else!). I actually had the choice of buying ether the edt or edp for the same fantastic price, but the edt was not how I remembered Tresor from the 90's (I obviously had the edp then as well), and is missing those gorgeous apricot notes that I love in the edp.
