My Favorite Winter Perfume + Holiday Giveaway!

Hi Socialites! I’d like to start this post by thanking each and every one of my readers for sharing their thoughts and opinions on my Holiday Budget post! I’m glad that I was able to help some on their quest to keep their pockets semi-full this holiday season, and I myself will be using some of the tips that were shared in the comments!

My blog would be nothing without my readers, so…there is a little surprise for you at the end of this post! ? ? With that said, let’s get to it!

Let me just say that I loooove perfume, but my journey with scents was one that took a little while to mature! During college and early adulthood, I was content with getting my smellgoods from places like Victoria’s Secret (Hello 5 for $25!!!) or Bath & Body Works. I would leave my dorm room smelling like Love Spell, and return smelling like Love Fail, as after a mere hour of time, my fragrance had dissipated. ?

I got into perfumes after studying scents, how they work, and how to layer them for maximum effect! I discovered that I like lighter, fruity eau de toilettes for summer, like my Signature summer scents: Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, and La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme. For winter, I turn up the heat with musky or sexy scents, like my favorite holiday perfume: Tresor by Lancôme!

Tresor by Lancôme Tresor is one of the most popular perfumes in the world. The scent is a warm floral-oriental with notes of rose, heliotrope, apricot, and iris. I know that perfume aroma is subjective due to the unique body chemistries of each wearer, but I have never encountered anyone who didn’t smell good in Tresor! I purchase Tresor as a Eau de Parfum as opposed to Eau de Toilette, as I like a more concentrated scent in winter (it’s got to pass through layers of sweaters, scarves, and coats!)

Tresor So I’m sure you know what’s next, right? Since Tresor is my absolute favorite wintertime perfume, it’s only right that I give away a fabulous Tresor Gift Set, complete with a Full-Size 1 fl oz bottle of Tresor Eau de Parfum; Perfumed Body Lotion; a .34 fl oz Eau de Parfum Purse Spray, and a pretty and pink Travel Bag to stash your scents in!
