    Welcome to basenotes!

    It's a consistent compliment getter. Had three or for in one wearing this weekend.

    "amazing" and "delicious" we're two that stood out.

    Too sweet opening for me , love the dry down though.....so layer it with YSL Body Kouros and sometimes Jaipur Homme EDP.
    Great stuff for this purpose....

    Probably my most used cologne during high school... Loved the first bottle, but by the 2nd bottle I was growing out of it and was getting sick of very dark base notes. I remember my gf at the time hating the "walk of shame" smell of the dreamer.

    I was given this one as a gift by my girlfriend's sister. Not bad. Apparently it's one to get the girls with? Though I'm fussy when It comes to frag's and I'd never wear it over my favourite orientals like CK's Obsession for men or Drakkar Noir. I can appreciate why many people like it though.

    Hate it. Gave my bottle away. The shower gel is very nice though!

    Top note is synthetic and powdery, love the dry down though. However, by the time that happens, it doesn't seem to project anymore.

    It's one of my favorite fragrances, but oddly I don't wear it out very often because I don't find it very versatile. It's a bit too overpowering for daily wear, and it's too floral and romantic for going out to bars, so I have trouble finding a place for it. I still love it, though. Once you get past the synthetic notes it smells like heaven in a bottle.

    I have the Dreamer and it's in my top 10 fragrances of all time.

    The Dreamer is sweet, floral, and a little feminine. It's not masculine, so either a man or woman can wear this. If you are a Polo/Varvatos/Obsession/Aramis guy, you probably won't want this.

    Also, the biggest controversy on this scent is the opening. During the first 45 minutes, the scent is loud, harsh, synthetic, very ashy, and is often compared to bug spray. So the con about this cologne is that before going out to any event, you should apply this an hour beforehand. This is not something you should just spray on and go out with.

    But if you can ride out the opening, it is a very magical scent that gets better and better with each passing hour.

    Good- gourmand notes, complimented, a modern, trendy reinterpretation of classic tobacco notes
    Less good- may be considered generic by some, longevity may be average

    I agree about it being very synthetic. For that reason I only sampled and never went on to purchase the bottle. But, One man's garbage is another man's fortune.

    not bad, but won't buy it again, nice bottle though!

    I like the way it goes. Oriental tobacco.

    For me its a mix of Le Male and Dolce & Gabbana.

    I like sweet scents but The Dreamer doesn't do it for me (tried to like it). There's something off-putting about this scent. Very good longevity, though.

    Love "The Dreamer".

    If Body Kouros is too off the beaten path, but you love the drydown.....or if you like Bogart Pour Homme but find it too strong and too crude.......Dreamer is your scent. It's like a transparent, generic version of those two opaque scents.

    One of the first bottles I bought when beginning this hobby. I absolutely loved it for months, wore it all the time. After a while, the synthetic smell that others mentioned started to wear on me, as I sampled and bought other frags. I still have a lot of respect for this one, and it has a sweet tobacco/vanilla drydown that is really nice if you get that far. If I wear it now, I'll usually take the hair dryer and 'burn' off the opening and get right to the middle. Don't worry about killing the longevity- even after killing the top with forced hot air, I'll still get 9-12 hours longevity with this one, and certainly on clothes into the next day. For $30USD shipped or perhaps less, it's a keeper for me.

    hope I can help
    the good: fresh floral opening smells hip and sexy in the same way Le Male is
    the bad: strange synthetic tobacco middle smells a bit like plastic when mixed with the florals
    the good: great floral dry down after about 3 hours the tobacco has become less harsh and you're left with a gorgeous masculine floral that is fresh and soft

    Basically, think of Le Male + Lilies + Tobacco

    Welcome!
    Just got my bottle in from Fragrancenet last week.
    Definitely not a huge fan of the opening. It's a bit too strong for my taste.
    The drydown is great though. Sweet but spicy at the same time. Haven't had any compliments on it so far, but I've only worn it out once.

    It's nice. I feel it's more of a summer safe Le Male. It's like a lighter version with hints of tobacco and tea.

    If it's not tobacco, I think this a little feminine to me. IMO the Dreamer is safe.
