    It definitely comes on strong, but Dreamer is unique - and in terms of what really matters, my fiancee likes it very much, particularly in romantic situations.
    All three are definitely ambery orientals, which puts them in the same category and explains why people find them similar.

    That said, there is nothing anywhere like the amazing opening in Dreamer. I found it addictive, but it is so overwhelming that I can also understand if someone says it gave them a headache.

    I thoroughly enjoy all phases of The Dreamer. Those who find the opening too weird and strong, should take a good whiff of Mazzolari Lui .
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    I know where it is coming from mate when you say 'How can anyone like Dreamer?'
    That was exactly what I said to myself when I tested this almost a year ago. The source of inspiration to try it came from nowhere else but the 'basenotes board'. I just couldnt believe it that why would anyone want to pay money to smell like sh**.

    However I revisited this a few months ago......Actually bought it online thinking that I must be crazy back then to think that this thing sucks, considering this has a huge fan following here....and boy do I like it now......whoa........the top notes are putting off...without any doubt....you need to muster courage to go past the top notes but the drydown is mindblowing.......The conditions have to be just right to actually fall in love with 'Dreamer'

    The weather should be cool and you should have an 'open' mind......and then you give it a go.....beware....dont sniff your hand too close just when you have sprayed it.....you'd hate it if you do that......wait for an hour and THEN sniff your hand.......this stuff rocks....

    This could have been such a nice fragrance, but something goes terribly wrong.

    I really enjoy the iris and tobacco (fragrancenet.com also lists "linen" in this fragrance.), but the opening is so sickeningly sweet that it just becomes a train-wreck on my skin.

    I love the drydown, but I need PeptoBismol chewables to help me get there...

    Consequently, I rarely use The Dreamer.
    Snarky is as snarky does.

    If it wasn't for the part that you claim is wrong and sickenly sweet, I wouldn't have bothered buying it.
    Still, I think yours is probably the majority view, given the highly discounted status of Dreamer around the place.

    Some people leak Kouros.

    Dreamer to me is OK, but it's a bit thin and smells a tad cheap. The same synthetic thinness that I find in something like Lagerfeld's Jako. Nobody should pay more than about US$30.00 per 100ml for either.

    I'm curious about your perspective.
    If Dreamer and Jako are "thin", what do you consider to be typical decent "thick" scents?

    In my collection the following are examples of 'thick' or 'rich', multi-dimensional:
    Black Orchid Tom Ford
    Boucheron pour Homme
    Santos Cartier
    Angel Thierry M.

    To me The Dreamer has anorexic tobacco, with a bit of iris on crutches as an auxiliary. That's about all.

    I nevertheless wear it with some enjoyment say once a semester.

    I definitely agree with the original post. I recently bought a small sample of The Dreamer to see what all the hype was about, and it's disgusting. First off, I really dislike tobacco notes for the most part, and when I sprayed this, I swear, it smelled like a wet ashtray full of cigarette butts. Trust me, if you dislike tobacco/cigarettes, stay far far away from this one (especially the opening).

    I've seen this compared to scents like Le Male and Body Kouros and I swear these people must be smoking something. I find nothing in common (at least in the topnotes, which is all I could bear

    I also have a difficult time getting this one. Maybe I need to test it more in cold weather. I don't know, maybe we're just not meant to be.

    I certainly used to like this one much more than I do now. I have about 10ml left of a 100ml bottle that I'm sure I'll get through with the colder weather approaching, but have no plans to re-buy it. Ironically, my brother felt the same way and grew tired of it once the novelty wore off. Ironically, I did just smell this on a woman the other day while I was at Starbucks.

    I hated it the first time I wore it, but fell in love with it after about 5 minutes. Excellent fragrance, clean tobacco with a certain sweetness, good longevity and siliage, ultimately versatile.
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
    Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."

    At first I thought "Oh good, this can replace Cuba Gold, which I'm not too keen on", but when using it again a strong urge to wash it off came over me.

    I expected very harsh and disgusting top notes from Dreamer but to my nose it is very clean, almost relaxing smell from start till end.

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire

    Part of the cotton candy generation. Not bad, but cheap, and tedious, very tedious. Love the detergent note.

    I know a girl that claims to love it, but my bottle's long gone. :-)

    it's curious that you guys are talking about it, as i've made a thread about a 50 ml i was about to blind buy, and i did. in fact im using it right now, one spray in each wrist and one on the adams apple. is it just me or it smells like a toned down jean paul gaultier le male?

    seriously i'm sniffing this on my wrist and i think Le Male

    ok i was expecting the terrible opening that it's not that terrible to begin with and the pleasant drydown all i can smell is something that reminds of a watered down Le Male that has no projection or longevity on my skin. the bottle, box all seems legit.

    Versace Dreamer is one of the most unique scents created. Gets Hella Complements from Women! Bang for your buck, and beats majority of niche for uniqueness. Sexy Stuff.. Cool day coming up on Friday, let me spray it on now.

    It´s probably one of the most alluring and enticing scents of my collection. Luckily, not very popular in my country which usually spark questions from the opposite sex on " what are you wearing that smells sooooooooooooo good"
    The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?
