La Nuit Tresor comes in an amethyst, diamond-shaped bottle that catches the light beautifully. Inside, the scent is sexy, evening-ready, and intoxicating.

Tresor was extremely popular in the 1990s and is known for its moderately-strong sillage and great longevity.
The definitive notes are peach and apricot for a fruity-meets-floral sweetness. Rose and lily of the valley are feminine and slightly powdery, while sandalwood and musk bring mysterious depth.
Tresor is the Lancome perfume for anyone looking for a mature, sophisticated scent to last.
If you were consuming media in 2000, you’ll remember this simple bottle and pink liquid as the “Uma Thurman” perfume.
Miracle is a definitively fresh, crisp scent with complex layers adding a little spice and sweetness. At the top, freesia, lychee, and pink peppercorn sparkle. Peony, rose, magnolia come through with a deeper bouquet. The base brings a deeper tone with musk, patchouli, and amber.
This is the perfume for you if you want a scent that is uplifting, clean, fresh, and perfect for morning-to-night wear. It’s a great summer and spring scent but would brighten up a fall or winter day, too.
Poeme is a rich, deep, creamy, and warm perfume best-known for being a firm favorite in the 1990s. The small, simple bottle with golden elixir houses a fragrance that has an incredibly strong sillage and ultra long-lasting performance.
The top and heart notes (the first aromas you will smell), are orange, lychee, and jasmine for a sweet, floral, and fruity fusion. The base notes come forth with deep, warm vanilla and sexy desert datura for nighttime appeal.
This is the perfume for you if you want something that truly makes an impact with long-lasting and complex notes.
The curvaceous Hypnose bottle serves clean, sensuous lines and gives away the scent within: feminine, mysterious, sexy, and night-centric.
Passion flower and jasmine start the experience off with a sweet, floral fusion that is quite heady. Inky vetiver and vanilla are warm, deep, and ideal for evening wear.
You’ll love Hypose if you seek woody florals and gourmand notes with touches of sweet white florals.
Lancome Idole was crafted by three powerful women, and the result is a feminine and bold fragrance in a simple-yet-stunning blush bottle. Rose, jasmine, and white chypre create a floral scent that is, above all, clean.
This is a perfect scent for you if you’re seeking something with a rose base that isn’t too sweet, powdery, or overpowering. It’s the kind of perfume you can spritz on all year round and enjoy a light haze of fresh rose.
Next, we have Magie Noire, an old-school Lancome fragrance that has been around since the late 70s. It has stuck around for good reason: the deep, intense Oriental notes of sandalwood and patchouli.
To balance these strong Oriental notes, rose and blackcurrant add a little sweetness, floral, and fruit. Magie Noire is incredibly long-lasting on the skin, staying with you from morning to night, when it really comes alive.
Magie Noire is the spritz for you if you’re looking for a deep, powerful fragrance with mature notes that last and last.
Our top pick is the rich and beautifully layered Tresor Midnight Rose. This is perfect for anyone who loves floral scents but likes a hit of sweetness and musk. Imagine feminine rose, raspberry, and jasmine, with the depth of vanilla and cedar for sexiness.
This is the scent for you if you’re looking for a feminine fragrance that makes you feel sexy, bright, sweet, and slightly mysterious. Plus, the amethyst-tone bottle looks great on your dresser.
