Twenty five years ago, Lancôme introduced Trésor, a beloved fragrance inspired by the enduring power of love. Translated as “treasure,”Trésor was created to embody life’s most precious moments. Grounded in the rose, the enduring symbol of love, beauty, and femininity, this unmistakable floral experience has become a priceless member of the maison Lancôme family of fragrances.
Over the intervening years, the Trésor fragrance family evolved with new additions—Trésor Midnight Rose, Trésor in Love, and most recently, Trésor Lumineuse. Now, in honor of the scent’s quarter century anniversary, celebrated perfumers Amandine Marie and Christophe Raynaud have re-imagined the legendary fragrance as a modern aphrodisiac, La Nuit Trésor, formulated to envelop wearers in the sensual, addictive mystique of night. Inspired by the original Trésor, new La Nuit Trésor captures the essence of a black crystal rose swathed in black vanilla.
Starting with a crystalline rose—the essence of Trésor—the perfumers has envisioned a new 21st century love potion. Adding a heady dose of luxurious vanilla leather, the result, much like love itself, is an addictive universal experience designed for women of all ages. A mysterious adornment whose power grows petal by petal, its creators treated the rose like a diamond set in a case of wild vanilla leather. Like a gem, they refined each of the flower’s fragrance facets to create sparkling contrasts and bright edges, elevating the composition to set smooth sensual notes against sharp green facets reminiscent of a rose’s thorns. With a 24-hour hold, designed for the most sublime diffusion, La Nuit Trésor can be worn from day into night.
In this all new interpretation of the enduring beauty of Trésor, La Nuit Trésor takes the classically recognizable composition and gives it a unique new signature. Irresistible and precious, this irresistibly sensual scent represents a delicious yet refined masterpiece of mouth-watering desire and include:
- Rose Oxide: The queen of flowers and symbol of absolute love, the rose beats at the heart of every Trésor creation. This newest composition is full of glittering vibrancy reminiscent of a starry night sky.
- Vanilla Tahitensis Orchid: Perfumery’s own black gold. Prized as the most luxurious of all vanillas, this bewitching, noble ingredient brings the reinvented classic scent into the heady realm of night.
- Praline: Intensified to perfumery’s highest dose, this addictive element creates mouth-watering gourmand appeal.
- Natural Incense: Often used in the most luxurious niche perfumes, this sensual note creates a halo of mystery to add to the intoxicating nigh-time effect.
- Lychee Accord: Perfectly blended to deliver an effusively luminous, refreshingly zesty note.
- Chypre Blend: Created from Papyrus—a little known ingredient that evokes the Trésor original classic leather facet—alongside Patchouli to deliver a refined, modern, new signature element.
- Sandalwood Accord: A vibrant wooded accord articulated with musk and rich, modern wood notes like derambren, cedramber, and boisambrene.
Inspired by luxury glass-making and high-end jewelry, the Trésor bottle has evolved with time while still retaining its essential structure. With La Nuit Trésor, Lancôme has heightened the traditional pyramid shape to a fine point, leaving the gleaming bottle and its luminous violet contents to rest alluringly to one side.
