The first time I smelled it was at the bay, I love the bottle and felt attracted to that dark, chic, feminine design. They had spray the fragrance in a bowl so you could smell inside the bowl. Like this, in the air, I thought it smelled amazing. I loved how it was a sweet perfume but with some edge.
The litchi brought something different maybe, the berries too. Darker, mysterious, but accessible, feminine. Then I sprayed it on a piece of paper and brought it home. I left it on my table at home and it was still going strong Now it smelled only like patchouli and berries.
I had to throw it away. Though I still had not tried it on me. I had too much of it and so I did not come back to try it on me yet. A couple of weeks later I am at work and I notice someone is wearing it.
It's way too strong. Again, that patchouli and berries. Not work appropriate in my opinion. It's loud, not as elegant as the first time I smelled it. But it stays in my mind I go back a while later to read the notes on fragrantica It seems so good. I WANT to like this.
I want it in my bedroom. I just love the whole marketing behind it. So I go back and now I try it on me. First hour pass and I think I'm back to love Maybe it suits me afterall. Only a light spray maybe that's the trick. I am sitting in the car and I can smell it.
The whole day passes and it's still there, every once in a while I get a smell of it, still strong. At the end of the day though, I can't stand it anymore. The at first cozy scent becomes syrupy, sickling sweet berries. It's strong, in your face. I think someone wearing this during the day is too much. It's not elegant, it's not delicate. It's bold, very sweet, and when you stop thinking about the marketing, you have to be honest with yourself and see that it just smells like very strong, sweet, caramel berries.
It's not a bad thing. But you have to like this. IMO, I was more attracted to it in the air, diluted, than on skin or paper. Jan Britts This is a complicated fragrance for me. Complicated in that I love certain notes praline, caramel, vanilla within it and hate others the patchouli mainly. Nope, can't do it. If you love sweet fruitchoulis I think you will enjoy La Nuit Tresor, test it first but unfortunately this did not work with my body chemistry. It's all about application for me. When I spray very lightly i.
ONE spray , I feel perfectly lovely in this. The perfume is a comfortable, comforting, sweet praline, fruit, and caramel cloud that feels like a warm embrace that follows me throughout the day.
When I spray just a little more heavily, it becomes a bit too much. The first time I wore it, which was about two years ago, I did my usual 3-spray routine, and La Nuit Tresor felt like a weight - it was just too much for me and I did not like it.
Now that I know exactly what works best for me, I can finally make this beauty a regular part of my rotation. I simply adore how it transitions from the sweet-tart top notes to the warm and smoky base. It is a perfect winter warm up. There are so many notes and so much to experience with La Nuit Tresor that I can't look at it with anything but adoration now.
It is a dream. Aaaand I must try Caresse now!
