I think it smells like plastic and has the most synthetic opening I've ever smelled. Can't stand it for the first 30 to 45 minutes and then once it settles down it's pretty nice. Not nice enough to get the hype it does.
to me the Dreamer smells "plasticky." not the worst smell ever, but annoys a bit. don't really get cough syrup out of it....you want cough syrup smell M7 cause that's what the one that reminds me of cough syrup.
