Reviews of Ocean Dream

To be honest, I cannot recall the smell of this. I bought a bottle in middle school with my allowance money because I was ob-SESSED with the ocean. My grandmother lived in Monterey Bay and I just knew I was going to move in with her, go to college in Santa Cruz, and become a marine biologist. I pounced on anything ocean- or beach-related, from scented candles to trinkets wrapped in rope at Hobby Lobby to cassette tapes of whale sounds to this magical sea juice.

I imagine it smelled lovely, but I hesitate to smell it again. Sometimes reality just doesn't stack up.

This review is based in a bottle originally purchased in Japan in or around 1998, a couple of years after its original release by the house of Giorgio Beverly Hills.

This fragrance develops in two distinct phases.

In the opening blast - and a blast it is - I get a nosefull of the sea. Fresh, ozonic and salty - this is a cluster of seas notes, fesh, sunny, heliotropic and convincing.

After first thirty minutes the second phase commences. White florals, mainly orange blossom and a touch of vetiver with magnolia, blend with a delightful water lily, and the latter sees added sweetness added by a rich yet discreet tonka impression. This discretely sweet combination is quite elegant and never cloying or intrusive.

Later on a very gentle white musk with a woodsy undertone are mixed in towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and ten hours of longevity on my skin.

A true summery ocean beginning, and a brightly floral-tonka drydown. Lovely, but a tad too linear towards the end, although the quality of the ingredients is very good. 3.5/5.

Very best quality ocean scented fabric softener smell; then comes fresh and smooth flowers. Longevity poor. stays close to skin and that would be good for perfume- timid ones. It is nice but not striking.

My review is for the original by Giorgio Beverly Hills.

A light watery type with florals (ylang-ylang?). You have to get close to get any scent at all. Good for the summer due to its lightness.
