    Each to his own, I reckon -- I for one find it to be a very pleasant iris and tobacco frag.
    It gets me tons of compliments and has great longevity and sillage.

    But then, I despise A*men while so many others here on the board are ga-ga for it.

    I'm with you on that - I can't bloody stand A*Men either, it's revolting.

    Was tossing up between this and D & G pH. Glad I ended up going with the D & G. Versace was a little bit too quirky for me. I definately got some sort of caramel ice-cream vibe on my skin! I still liek'd it, but not enough to buy it over D&G.

    It's easy to get quite intoxicated with Versace Dreamer - the opening blast is an overwhelming work of art (at least it seems that way after a few times).

    But I only wear Dreamer in cooler weather. You're in Abu Dhabi where I don't think there is such a thing as cool weather. I don't think I'd be wearing it much over there either. You would probably be better off with orientals that are fresher than average, like Gucci Envy, Very Valentino or Cerruti Si, to name a few.

    One reason...because everyone is different. There are a lot of fragrances that I like that others do not and juices that others adore that I can't bear. And just because Turin, Burr and others think something is Fragrance Royalty does not mean that I will warm up to it either.

    Best,

    Are we talking about Kouros or Kouros+Dreamer? No matter, I suppose it applies to both.

    If I were to rate it on drydown only I would give it 5 stars, without hesitation.

    Unfortunately it takes some time to get there. And to make things worse, it takes in fact longer than most other fragrances to get there...

    Like others said, in cold weather thats somewhat bearable, but summer is a real no no.

    I like it. It is much better thad DG PH. The initial gourmand smell is identical to the way a tootsie roll smells. After the tootsie roll burns off, you are left with the initial burst of DG PH which is good. I don't detect any tobacco in Dreamer but this is where DG PH goes south. I can't stand that annoying, rancid tobacco note that dominates and seems to go on forever.

    One of my ex's wore Dreamer, and it smelt absolutely incredible on him. Very arousing, and erotic.

    I think you're overreacting a bit. I personally like it quite a bit.. I do agree that it's a bit overpowering for most of its life and the opening is a bit much. I think it's super synthetic and shares many of the synthetic qualities with Le Male, but for some reason I really like the drydown. I think I've worn it out twice, but got compliments on both occasions (granted one was from a girl i was dating at the time). That's a lot of faults I find in something I like, but I must like it enough to keep a bottle in the collection amongst the big dogs!

    Anywho, any haters should give it a 'spray' test with good distance from the skin and let it develop. Purty good I think

    I got The Dreamer recently and your description above is 100% right imo,
    I don't liek it much(!)

    It's strong but I like it. It is very Winter/Fall to me and the tobacco smell is great. It can be too strong and I haven't worn it in a bit but the original post is a little harsh.

    It's so similar to Le Male that I wonder does anyone who lieks Le Male also lieks The Dreamer?

    Yea, that crap reeks of tar and aspartame. Can't stand the stuff.

    The Dreamer on other hand is interesting, but really loud and may come off as obnoxious at first but if you wait around and get to know it you love it quite a bit. It's kind of like me, especially when intoxicated!

    Dreamer doesn't smell like these two at all, so I guess I don't know what you mean either.

    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.

    I love Dreamer but I found the mandatory 30 minute airing out period to get past the strong reak of the top notes unacceptable.

    Mr. Burr says...

    "After all those goddamn, tired out, hairy chested, cliché macho, standardized masculine fragrances you find out there, you have to wonder: Who the hell at Versace was the genius who came up with The Dreamer? First, this is so utterly not your father's aftershave that it smells like it fell to earth from the strange, powdery stellar globulous pictured on its box. Like Angel, The Dreamer startles you. Smell Eau Sauvage, and you think, "Oh, men's cologne." (Ho hum.) You smell this thing, and not only do you not think men's cologne (because you can't possibly), you think "My God!..." and then "What the hell is it?!" "It" is, first, absolutely mouthwatering. It is walking through a French pastry shop next to a spice market in southern Thailand. Then there's ice cream, gun powder, fruit candy, hot cocoa, marshmallows, blood orange peel, and probably some DDT. It is the most mesmeric fragrance I know."

    Stolen from, "Chandler Burr | Five Favorite Scents | August 2004"

    For what its worth.
    I leik it. But it took me a couple wearings to appreciate it. I still don't reach for it very often, but when I do, I really enjoy it. Once I get past the DDT.
