The Dreamer by Versace
I suppose the thing I noticed most about Versace's The Dreamer is its inherent thickness. By that, I mean there's a dense, tight quality like that of Tiffany for Men. I only refer to the "feel" and not the smell between these two. They smell nothing alike, but they do share this quirk on my skin. It gives both a substantial aspect, albeit it is less pronounced in The Dreamer than the Tiffany. I also admit to liking The Dreamer more each wearing and am happy to have procured a bottle for my work rotation.
I do not know how the original release compares to the current one that I'm reviewing. There was a time that I would track down vintages to compare, but no more. There's simply too many creations that are here today and gone tomorrow and to pursue the "originals" these days is too expensive. Besides, I like this "current" version as it is, so it's a mute point.
Versace's The Dreamer is a Tobacco fragrance that, once dried down, reveals a slightly sweet and earthy woody tabac. It's a rather simple composition, but linear is sometimes good. Sillage is average and longevity is approximately 5 hours on me with moderate sprays. Thumbs up from Aromi for The Dreamer by Versace and as always, a sample wear is recommended.
