Introducing La Nuit Trésor by Lancôme

An Iconic Heritage
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.
Over the 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, to envelop wearers in the sensual, addictive mystique of night.

The New Story
Starting with a crystalline rose—the essence of Trésor—Marie and Raynaud envisioned a new 21st century love potion. Adding a heady dose of luxurious vanilla leather, they created the world’s first gourmand aphrodisiac. The result, like love itself, is an addictive universal experience designed for women of all ages. With a 24-hour hold, designed for the most sublime diffusion, La Nuit Trésor can be worn from day into night.

Inspired by the original Trésor, new La Nuit Trésor captures the essence of a black crystal rose swathed in black vanilla. 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.

The Notes
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 enticingly sensual scent represents a delicious yet refined masterpiece of mouth-watering desire.
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.

3.Once secured, Rod generously back-combed underneath the start of the ponytail to create fullness.
4.Holding the ponytail high in the air, he then brushed the back of it and used the T3 BodyWaver 1.75” Styling Iron to create a slight bend in the ponytail.

1.Starting with damp hair, Creighton used the T3 Featherweight Luxe2i Dryer and a blowout spray to rough dry the hair1.Expert tip: If you have straight to wavy hair, and want your curls to last through the night, rough dry it instead of blowing out with round brush. This will ensure the cuticle stays intact, and the curlswill last longer!

Starting with hair at the back/bottom of the head, Creighton took 1’’ horizontal sections and curled using the T3 BodyWaver1.75”Styling Iron all in the same direction. After each curl, he pinned with a bobby pin to hold in place.

New! Illamasqua Gel Sculpt

illmasqua gel sculpt

Nothing changes a girls life like the day she learns about contouring. Such a simple way to bring out the best in your face and help accentuate bone structure. I have used quite a few powder highlighting and contouring products but the Illamasqua Gel Sculpt was my first time trying a gel product.

When you first pop it open the color is very dark, a little frightening for a fair skin girl like myself.  I applied under my cheek bone and the color on my skin was much tamer than I expected. The gel was easy to work with and I blended upward creating a nice contrast to bring out my cheekbones.

After I did my cheeks I ran the gel stick lightly along the very edge of my face from my ear down along my jaw and across to the other ear. Just a light rub to blend it in. And instantly my jawline has definition and looks slimmer.

Sadly the pictures don’t do this amazing product justice. The color is so easy to work with and creates great definition. And the best part it lasts all day and into the evening. Unlike powder formulas that dissipate throughout the day Gel Sculpt looked just as great at the end of the day as it did when I applied it. Such an amazing beauty tool to bring out the best in your face. This will definitely be a staple in my beauty routine.
