Rêve from Van Cleef & Arpels
Fragrance Family: Fruity Floral
In Three Words: Beautiful, Complicated, Lillies
My Experience: (I tested the fragrance on a cardboard strip before reading about it, and this is what the scent made me think of)
To me the scent of this fragrance paints the perfect picture of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. I see her in a soft pink dress with bouncy, curly hair. Sweet, stylish and innocent. She curls-up in soft pink satin sheets at night. She is wonderfully complicated!
The perfumers describe this fragrance as a dream world where the flowers, trees and plants exude a mottled white, delicately tinged with powdery pinks, soft greens and iridescent ivory. Butterflies incrusted in diamonds. An incredible garden where one is immediately captivated by the floral, musky, fruity scents. A fragrance, clear and refined. An ode to Femininity
The Mid-notes reveal lively, almost honeyed, osmanthus, combined with majestic lily. The Top notes consists of pear and neroli. Warm tones of sandalwood and amber punctuate the fragrance, and to round it all off pink peony and rose petals form the base of this fragrance.
