lancome trésor eau de parfum

Lancôme's Trésor perfume has been my signature autumn/winter perfume for a very long time now. It has also been my night time/ date night perfume as it has such a romantic feel to it. I have been wearing this perfume for over 10 years now and there are so many memories attached to it that it will forever be in my collection. 

My sister gifted me a small bottle of Trésor when I was 14 years old and I fell in love with it instantly and have been wearing and loving it ever since. The scent lasts literally for days but it is not overbearing at all. It is such a distinctive, seductive/sensual scent and I always feel very grown-up and sexy and never short of compliments when I have this on. This is such a classic perfume to last you a life time and what a true treasure it is.

So every once in a while I do like to switch things up and the Tom Ford Black Orchid perfume had been on my wish list for quite a while. I had heard so many good things about this perfume and I was very intrigued to try it and so had to get it.

When I bought this perfume, I had no idea what it was going to smell like and considering the price tag, this was such a huge risk because if I had not liked the smell I wouldn't have been able to return it.

But, as soon as I opened this perfume, the scent immediately became so familiar that I knew exactly where and on who I had smelled it on before and I was in heaven. 

All I can say is, thank God for Unisex perfumes. 

This perfume is just; to quote a review I saw online; "sex in a bottle"!! It is such a dark, sensual, seductive, mysterious scent. As much as I love it on me, I most definitely prefer it even that much much more on a guy. There is absolutely nothing more sexier than a man who smells really good!!

This is the best purchase I have made all year and that is a very bold statement!! It is definitely worth the price. At whatever price tag, I would buy it; that's how strongly I feel about it!! This will forever be in my collection.
