I love perfume. It’s an addiction and I just can’t get enough of it – there’s no such thing as too many bottles of perfume! So, naturally, whenever my birthday or Christmas comes around, everyone who knows me well enough always gets me at least one bottle of perfume. Right now, I have 11 full-sized bottles and 6 miniature bottles and I feel like I could really do with some more …
Anyway, I recently received a new bottle of perfume as a gift for my birthday and I’ve fallen completely in love with it. It’s definitely a contender for my all-time favourite. And as you will have seen from the title of this blog post, it’s called Trésor in Love by Lancome.
I’ve never really bought anything from Lancome – not that I can remember anyway. To me, it always seemed like the kind of beauty store that my mum would shop in, but more recently I’ve noticed that they’re shifting their focus slightly to appeal to younger consumers, which is great. So I wouldn’t have chosen this perfume for myself, but that’s the best part of getting gifts, right?
The scent of this perfume is perfect for summer. It’s really light, fruity and floral, making it incredibly feminine. Lancome market it as youthful, modern and flirty and I can definitely agree with this – except from the flirty part … purely because I’m always left confused at how a perfume can be “flirty” or “sexy” and I hate how over-sexualised perfume adverts and marketing is. But that’s enough of that rant.
The final aspect of this perfume that I love is the bottle. The design is very simple, yet elegant and it comes with a cute little bow in the shape of a rose around the neck of the bottle. I do have the smallest bottle, at only 30ml but for me, this just makes the bottle cuter.
I’ve already used around one quarter of the bottle and I would definitely buy more of it. But for now, I think I’ll be reserving this for fancy restaurants and special occasions.
