    Cool Alternative to Lancome's Tresor

    [This is also posted under the "Just Starting Out" forum, but I thought this might be a good question to pose here.]

    Hi, all. I have a quick question. I'm a frequent user of Lancome's Tresor, which I find smells very light on my skin. I'm looking for an alternative scent that won't offend in a small and professional work space. I like floral-earthy scents, with little to no powder scent. Are there any other fans of Tresor that have some suggestions for me? Almost everything else I've tried with similar ingredients are either very strong or very powdery. I also sometimes work in hot conditions, and perfumes can easily become cloying.

    I'm thinking about trying these following scents. Is there anyone that has used one of these before under similar circumstances with good results? Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    Peachy Rose? Nahema by Guerlain. I like it more than Tresor. Also try Givenchy L'Interdit

    Chanel Coco in the EDT form, or possibly Coco Mademoiselle which has a more "watery" feel to it.

    I am a Tresor fan, as well as a fan of Sophia Grosjman, the nose behind the juice. I would definitely recommend seeking out her creations, and there are plenty! Off the top of my head, I would immediately recommend YSL's Paris and Bvlgari's Pour Femme. Seriously, you will find many wearable beauties that bear her "signature" - please post back and let us know what you find...happy sniffing!

    I recommend you try Lancome Poeme. Poeme is dominated by cassis but I find the character, feel, sillage is very similar to Tresor. May be it is a chemistry thing but I actually prefer Poeme when craving that type of scent.

    Others worth trying:

    Lentheric Baroque
    Coty L'Aimant PdT
    Crabtree & Evelyn Nadira
    Cerruti 1881 pour Elle Eau D'Ete 2004
    Penhaligons Elizabethan Rose
    Crown Perfumery Marechale
    Favourite (Winter) Crazy Combos

    Tabu + Orange Blossom * Hermes Rouge + Bellodgia* Voleur du Roses+ Rose Ispahan * Rasa Extreme + Paris * Wood Coffee + Cafe Noir *

    I think you might really like Tocade. And the price is really good!

    I wear Soir de Lune all the time to work! It's got good personality and smells great. It's a very distinctive woody rose scent. Gres Cabaret is a very respectable, and far more affordable, alternative.

    I find that the modern incarnation of Soir de Paris has a lot of Tresor about it
