    Wink Blind buy Versace the Dreamer

    Hi guys,

    Im curious about Versace the Dreamer by reading a lot of reviews.
    I cant get my hands on any sample in stores so Im gonna blind order a 50 ml bottle from the net.
    Is this a good idea?

    Fragrances that I like: woody, oriental fragrances, but also fresh fragrances,
    Le Male, D&G, Fleur du Male, Fahrenheit 32, Kenzo Tokyo, Jill Sander sun, Dsquared Potion, Ed Hardy, Boss Bottled Night, Boss Orange, Hugo Energise, Jordan by Michael

    Basenoters with the same taste as me who know the Dreamer: what do you say?

    I think you'll like it. It's relatively cheap so if you can't sample it it's worth blind buying in my opinion. A great fragrance. A lot of people hate the opening but I love it.

    Although I like many of the same types of fragrances as you, and speaking only for myself, this is one I did not care for at all when I tried it. Didn't like the smell. Hoping your experience is different.

    I don't like the first 30 minutes, but then it really starts to shine on me.
    I don't get much of the tobacco some get, but I get a very cosy and calming frag........definitely worth a blind buy for that price.

    After the 30min-1 hour mark, you'll love it.

    Some that you have I like, but some I do not like. Jordan by MJ I actually hate.. That said.. I love The Dreamer, but many others do not. It's not a very safe blind buy.

    The opening is bad IMO, but if you like Le Male you have a better chance of liking this. Both have a synthetic vibe I don't care for.

    I didn't care for it, but the people who like it generally love it.

    Damn, I am thinking of Blind buying it too. Can't go wrong with $30 for a big bottle I guess. Can always sell it for same price or even more, if I don't like it.

    You'll like it if you like Le Male. They have a similar sweet, powdery vibe but The Dreamer is better IMHO. I blind bought The Dreamer and was not disappointed. It's on my Top 10.

    Some people dislike the opening but this passes after about 30 min

    Gets much better after that

    I bought this blind in the 30 ml size some time ago. A clean and pleasant scent with a very mild tobacco, if only a bit synthetic smelling.

    Dries down to comfortable and clean. ( I adore the bottle!)

    Not a safe blind buy. Buy some samples of it from the perfumed court or a basenoter.

    As others have said, the opening is a blast of synthetics that can be harsh. After that, it settles into a nice fresh-linen scent (to me), and finally into a smooth light tobacco with some sweetness. I actually had a co-worker ask if I had just smoked a cigarette one morning (I quit over a year ago) while wearing this. It definitely has a synthetic vibe until the very base, but that's not always necessarily a bad thing. Some compare the sweetness to Le Male, but I think they are different enough to own both (I do!). I quite like this one as a budget fragrance, and for the longevity you get (10+ hours on skin, into the next day on clothes), it's definitely not a bad blind buy. It was my first fragrance I got coming out of the Claibornes and Celebrity frags that I used in highschool, and I will always have a bottle in my wardrobe.

    Amazon has the 100ml bottle for $32 with free shipping (sold and shipped by Amazon). Worst case scenario, you sell the bottle for pretty much what you paid if you don't care for it.

    Must be what that synthetic note is because I can handle CK Eternity no problem, but not this one.

    Im scammed several times buying fake counterfeit knockoff fragrances from eBay.
    Is Amazon a reliable website?
    I know strawberrynet.com sells genuine products.

    Liking Le Male doesn't necessarily mean one enjoys The Stinker.

    Amazon should be fine. I'd think it's a bit too cheap for anybody to bother to fake this one.

    Amazon.com is a reliable website, as long as in the description, it says "ships from and sold by Amazon.com."

    I love it. But I would definitely try to get a sample first. I blind bought a couple things from recommendations on here and it didn't quite fit with my style.
