I was talking the other day with my wife with respect to Avon fragrances, a discussion in which both she and I agreed that these perfumes, in spite of their employed ingredients and the perfumer responsible with the process of creation, exhibit in the majority of cases an aroma that says Avon from the beginning until the end.
The reason we had this discussion was Treselle, a scent received by my wife as a gift two months ago, and finally tested at the end of this July. Sadly, although it came highly recommended, Treselle belongs to the category mentioned at the beginning of this post.
Arrived on the market in 2003 and presented as a feminine floral fragrance, Treselle was developed by two perfumers: Ilias Ermenidis and Alberto Morillas and as much as I wanted to come up with a different conclusion (I’m sorry Señor Morillas!), I just have to tell you that the scent is dull. The notes of licorice and pepper found in the heart are totally subdued by an over-sweet and over-floral aroma that makes perceivable its presence from the initial accords till the final ones. As for the persistence, this perfume is close to what an average is supposed to be, however does not quite deliver it.
The listed top notes of Treselle are tuberose, lotus and rose (the first and second are very prominent); its heart is made of black pepper and licorice; and its base notes are represented by musk, iris and Tiger lily.
The flacon that holds Treselle is made from transparent glass and exhibits nice feminine curves, but the point of attraction is represented by the stopper and the decorated bottle’s neck, both coming in golden.
