Reviews of The Dreamer

Nice bottle. The predominant Iris made this a bit feminine to my nose. Then mix the iris with the tobacco and it became very cloying. I wanted this to work but it just didn't with my chemistry. Still a neutral as I can understand this will work well for others especially if you like floral and tobacco notes.

horrible stuff. ghastly - and you can't get it off. I changed shirts twice, washed my chest 3 times (once with dawn dish soap), and finally showered with hand soap containing rock salt. and I can still smell it. I've read the scent pyramid and I still can't tell you what I'm smelling, only that it's overwhelmingly sweet and hits my migraine spot dead on

The opening blast is characterised by a fresh blast - juniper with whiffs of bergamot initially, which is complimented by an impression of lilies soon after the start. a slightly powdery green iris note, which is on the darker side on me. It is not very boozy in character. I find the juniper a bit underwhelming, with a lily and the iris being a bit on the bland side, but a bit more convincing overall.

in the base a soft note of fresh, slightly ambery and sweetly fruit-vanilla flavoured pipe tobacco, with a touch of tarragon

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection, and eight hours of longevity on my skin.

This is a pleasant, soft and sweet scent for spring evenings, which is quite simple, but works out quite well in the combination of notes. A bit generic at times, but performing solidly. 2.75/5

I got this one in 1998 or so to break my Acqua di Gio habit. I was sick of it.

For 15 years, this was my go-to special occasion fragrance. I love it. I'll always have a bottle. It's easily the fragrance I have been wearing the longest that I still wear on occasion.

I wish I were better with my notes so I could say more than "it smells good, with a tobacco/amber close."

As I've even seen it in drugstores, it's easily found at a good price point. It's not exactly a great beginner fragrance but it is close.

The Dreamer is a good fragrance, however nowadays I find it too sweet and sometimes cloying. A decent performer in projection and longevity. The scent takes me back to the nightclubs in the late 1990s; the smell of The Dreamer would be present in the atmosphere inside the club. I will wear this fragrance rarely as I do like it but it's too 1996-1999 nightclub vibe and I don't think that kind of scent works today. I'd say The Dreamer is for the collector who will spritz it occasionally to reminisce the old days.

Get a citrusy-lemony impression for about the first minute...for the rest of the ride , its pretty much a bouquet of flowers and " green " tobacco leaves...does strike me as D & G Pour Hommes kid brother...Looking up to big brother and trying to be like him...still , a pleasant all purpose fragrance...but nothing to get really excited about , hence , my only reason that made this a neutral...
