As a new flanker to the classic 1990’s edition Tresor (the original perfume with this name being launched in 1952!), Tresor Midnight Rose is a fragrance that, as portrayed in the official website embodies “mischievous femininity: its rose becomes playful, driven by delicious tangy raspberry notes, wooden shimmers and voluptuous vanilla notes”.
Associated with the image of English actress Emma Watson, Tresor Midnight Rose is reportedly aiming to encapsulate the aroma of a night spent in what is generally considered the most romantic city in the world, Paris. Introduced in September 2011 and developed by perfumer Anne Flipo, this scent belongs to the floral woody musk olfactory group and from the olfactory pint of view is an edition with enhanced gourmand accents, compared to the original. The video commercial features Emma Watson walking around the streets of Paris and introduces the tagline “It’s not the end”.
Given that both my wife and I labeled Tresor as an interesting fragrance, I thought she might give it a try to this new edition. As a result, subsequent to spraying only 2 whiffs on her wrist, the note of black currant was obvious, offset by the spicy accord of pink pepper, a hint of jasmine and peony. Then, after the disappearance of top notes, Tresor Midnight Rose made way for a heart imbued with a deep and intense accord of rose absolute, juxtaposed to raspberry note. The final phase was reserved to the warm accord obtained from the essence of Virginia cedar, combined with vanilla and sensual musk, in order to obtain an interesting perfume.
The flacon that contains Tresor Midnight Rose is a replica of the flask from the previous flanker, Tresor in Love, except the fact that on this occasion the color scheme was modified and is purple. Overall, this perfume is more appropriate for a young woman, more in Emma Watson group of age, who will feel more comfortable with this essence. For the rest, there’s always the original.
