Description

On Tilbury's part, Moss proved the perfect choice due to the hypnotic, beguiling qualities that have underpinned her modelling success. It has a soapy quality, in the far dry down - not on me, bc I scrubbed it - which is something I rarely do, but I only managed to withstand 1 hour - but, on others, it does, in the far, drydown. Although, I can’t retell the story of this scent as beautifully as I first heard it, if you watch the video (starring long term friend and collaborator Kate Moss)- you’ll get a pretty accurate idea of a genuine story of one of this perfume’s initial wears- which I think is pretty special indeed- I told you Charlotte was magic. Starts off like slightly lemony hairspray then goes woody floral with some powdery amber and surprisingly restrained patchouli. It reminds me of something, but I cannot be sure, (unusually,) there's an echo of Bamboo Glacé by Weil) - which also had an 80'd Givenchy vibe, but in a different way - cannot think what it reminds me of.

Honestly with many perfume ingredients being constructed synthetic molecules, I almost prefer to not know what the ad copy wants me to think the perfume smells like. I think sometimes we can be very critical of mass marketed fragrances, but I still regard this as somewhat of a ‘high street niche’ - like an Hermes or a Narciso Rodriguez. While getting ready for a lunch date with my husband, I sprayed some on and delighted in the lemony-peachy top notes mixed with black pepper. Based on the (rather silly) marketing, I expected a super luxe boho chic fragrance, spicy and rich, meant to make a stranger at least give a second look.From reading the notes, especially the top notes (which by the way are my favorites)I thought that I was going to love it. OCTYLDODECANOL, POLYBUTENE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, ETHYLENE/PROPYLENE COPOLYMER, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, VP/HEXADECENE COPOLYMER, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, DICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, SILICA, HYDROGENATED STYRENE/METHYL STYRENE/INDENE COPOLYMER, MICA, OZOKERITE, STEARALKONIUM BENTONITE, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE, CRAMBE ABYSSINICA SEED OIL, ETHYL VANILLIN, BIXA ORELLANA SEED EXTRACT, TIN OXIDE, [+/- TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), RED 6 (CI 15850), RED 7 (CI 15850), RED 7 LAKE (CI 15850), RED 28 LAKE (CI 45410), RED 30 LAKE (CI 73360), YELLOW 5 LAKE (CI 19140), YELLOW 6 LAKE (CI 15985), BLUE 1 LAKE (CI 42090)]. Featuring a blend of JOY top notes including Lemon, Peach and Black Pepper, ‘FLEUROTIC’ heart notes of Jasmine, Frankincense, Tuberose and Violet, plus MAGIC MOLECULE base notes of Fire Tree, Iso E Super, Patchouli and Ambroxan.

This is a bit of a shocker upon first spray and I will admit that I was initially turned off by this fragrance as it is quite harsh and synthetic with a cheap lavender-ish aromatherapy type smell upon first sniff. No, I can't think of any logical reason why it should work, either, but the next day I could just about smell something.The top notes are certainly happy and uplifting, and I smell the crisp citrus and bergamot right off the top, made interesting and fun with pepper and saffron. I had to wash it off after around an hour of testing but it WOULD NOT COME OFF in the shower, so a plus would be that it is long lasting. Scent Of A Dream suffuses its wearer in hypnotic, alluring and sensual positivity for a spritz of power right to your pulse points. The scent is described as a “first-of-its-kind ‘floral chypre’ perfume harmony that features a blend of confidence boosting Joy top notes, intoxicating Fleurotic heart notes and pheromone base notes. This is not a delicate fragrance at all, this is a strong powerhouse, that is essentially everlasting.

Not only that but the fragrance literally stuck to the woollen jumper and coat I was wearing for daaaaaaays so that I had to wash the jumper and air the coat to get rid of it. But cause of the bottle shape etc it wpnt come out like usyal /correctly ,, wont spray correct or almost anymore at all now even tho there is some left but only has been if I had the bottle perfectly flat and then it would come out but now there is less and it's almsot like the straw is just to short of not this short and bottle shape it qouks, come out normal still .I shower in the mornings unless I've been out to the gym, outside working, or other reasons, this morning (WED) I smelled my wrist to smell a faint distant memory still there. However, the other day, said daughter was wafting something gorgeous and when she told me it was her Kate Moss perfume I couldn't believe it! Free,sample from them in the mail and for it for a Christmas gift to myself, and it didn't last that long .
