Tresor is a perfume with a past, with a memory . You feel when you wear it that you can't be forgotten. (Isabella Rossellini)
The second Tresor was launched in 1990. It was created by the queen of roses, Sophia Grojsman. This scent mixes a spicy Otto rose with a heavy apricot note. The apricot is dense, rich, full of nectar and slightly musky. It is this note that makes the whole fragrance slightly naughty and fleshy. The middle notes are peach, jasmine, lilac, lily of the valley(greenish),iris & heliotrope(gives it a powdery vibe)and ends with a drydown of candyish vanilla, sandalwood, amber and musk.
Last year I discovered a Lancome history book at The Strand in NYC. It was written by Jacqueline Demornex. The pages revealed a slew of Lancome fragrances I have never experienced. There was a Tresor that was launched in 1952 and was described as "a fragrance that combined the magnificence of the orient combined with the taste of Paris".
Present day Tresor is very sultry yet ladylike to me. Like a bottled up Dita Von Teese. You can imagine a woman in a proper Dior suit with Agent Provocateur knickers underneath.
Tresor is available at your local Lancome counter worldwide. I recommend the EDP for it's strength and staying power. The EDT is lighter and less powdery.

These are pictures from the Lancome boutique in Paris. I fell in love with the Tresor light fixture. It shimmered and sparkled.
