Thread: Versace The Dreamer
it smells like baby powder on my skin!!!
some basenoters talked about the tobacco drydown, but i get this baby powder scent in the drydown and then it fades (after 1 / 2 hours).
I like it a lot. It does smell like tobacco to me and I get a very masculine floral!
Sometimes it smells like that too on my skin but I love it so much in the normal times

its tobacco flower, not straight tobacco, the two are not the same at all.

It smells beautiful.
I get indeed the same mentioned tobacco note and it usually outlasts 1 1/2 hours
I've tried my sample a few times now, and it's growing on me a bit. I still am not a big fan though. I dislike tobacco as a scent , and honestly, the opening of The Dreamer smells like a wet ashtray to me for the first few minutes.
I think this fragrance probably appeals most to smokers or fans of tobacco smells. As someone who doesn't like tobacco at all, I find it a hard one to enjoy. To me, the tobacco note is by far the most notable in the scent.
This is a beautiful scent, the powdery laundry smell it is unbelievable. I want to cuddle myself when I smell it. Lovely stuff.
I dont' get the burning cigarette/cigar association with The Dreamer.
To my nose, it smells like sweet, moist Tobacco leaves curing and fermenting in relative humidity in the production stables (pre-rolling) waiting to be processed. The dry down smells like clean laundry airing out on a clothesline. I get the same vibe with Pure Havane too. Both fantastic frags which deliver this experience.
Freshly rolled cigars/cigarettes
It also gets compared to Dolce & Gabanna pour Homme. Do they smell the same ? I really don't think so. But I think it is because :
a) They are both old school "clubbin" fragrances
b) Italian Designers
d) People think they both have tobacco.
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage), Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

The Dreamer was awfully reformulated one or two years ago. Boxes are different, so you can know which version you have, but if you do not smell tobacco you probably have the reformulated version.
The baby powder you're getting is the huge dose of coumarin in this scent, coupled with the clean clary sage note.
I think it's a fantasic scent. I have gotten nothing but compliments when wearing it, as a matter of fact I got one today (obviously The Dreamer is my SOTD).
Love it, it´s one my top compliment getters. It´s a lovely scent that distinguishes from so many other scents. There´s something mysterious about this scent that is hard to describe, kind of like the vibe I get when wearing Xeryus Rouge (another enigmatic scent).
The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?
Versace The Dreamer = Banana Republic Classic
I used to own this one but it was of late hour that I started to appreciate it, after I got rid of it, of course. Not that it grieves me much for not owning it, but it is quite a classic and unique scent that draws attention. I just might reconsider and have it as part of my collection again.
This is one of my favorites from my 60+ bottle collection and is definitely in the top 10 if not top 5. It is powdery but not baby powder like Versace Blue Jeans or Burberry Brit. It definitely has a tobacco note in it that reminds me of D&G pour homme and the powderyness reminds me of Le Male. A good combination. Very romantic and very VERY strong at first. It lasts over 12 hours easy.

It is indeed , very powdery . I do detect a hint of tobacco in the dry down but it is far from being a prominent note in the scent. And wow , the opening of the dreamer is very very harsh but the beautiful dry down alone makes this fragrance buy-worthy.
I get the smell of fresh linen scented fabric softener out of this more than anything.
i love it. very remniscent of the 90's...unique. a keeper.
Where can you sample the dreamer in the UK? Is it carried by any of the larger stores?
I've searched but to no avail as yet.
Debenhams website has it at £21 for 50ml (not that I'm tempting anyone into blind-buying ). So I expect they might have it in-store too.
He boiled for our sins.
I get Powdery Potpourri. I do detect a faint hint of tobacco initially.
The Dreamer is a scent I really do not wear enough. The drydown is really nice, but I sometimes wonder what the hell they were thinking, when they cooked up that messy opening. I do get some tobacco, especially in the beginning, but this one is about the sweetness with a soapy tinge, to me anyway. An aspect mentioned by previous posters, who have experienced a laundry/soap like scent
Didn't enjoy it, or D&G PH, or Cuba Gold. For me Le Male beats all of these by a country mile.
No baby powder for me.....none at all.....Gary
Vanilla, tobacco, florals, something semi smoky. Very, very, very nice in the right weather and sprayed in the right amounts. in my top 5 scent wise.
I think this scent is a masterpiece and a classic. I get a lot of tobacco and lily's and some vanilla this is one, if not my favourite cologne right now. For some it takes awhile to get to truly appreciate it but to each there own right. It might be discontinued so grab a bottle soon, which reminds me i gotta go get a backup bottle.
