Charlotte Tilbury Scent Of A Dream Review
I’ve always consistently loved a certain perfume (review on that one coming soon!) but last year I bought some products from Charlotte Tilbury and with it got a sample of her “Scent Of A Dream” perfume. I didn’t really think much about the sample at the time and it sat not being used for a while, until one day I came across it again and gave it a try.
I really loved the smell of this perfume and it lasted for AGES! At the time I was working long days in the salon and smelt of wet dog most of the time, I really felt like I needed a long lasting perfume. I certainly found it with this one. The Charlotte Tilbury site describes it as:
Darlings, I have created a one-of-a-kind ‘floral chypre’ perfume harmony that IGNITES a mind-altering fleurotic frequency. 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. It attracts LOVE, LIGHT, POWER, POSITIVITY and SEX to the wearer!
I’m not skilled with describing scents but it’s a rich scent, strong but not harsh. I can’t tell you what it smells like, it to me is a very safe smell. I feel like it might be similar to a perfume my grandma wore when I was young as it does remind me of her, not in the old person smell way but the nice, safe, warm way. See I’m really bad at this…..
When I wore it out for the first time I had a few people ask me what it was as they liked it, it’s strong enough for people to notice without being over powering.
Now what I will say is that this is fairly up there in price, at the time of posting this the price list is as follows:
30ml – £49
50ml – £68
100ml – £96
I had to sit for a while and decide which to buy, I’m always reluctant to spend a lot of money on perfume. When I buy a perfume I want it to smell good, last long and be noticed, for that price I want to not smell like me! I feel like this perfume ticks those boxes.
I paid slightly more so that I could get a few samples of other products, after all the perfume sample was what made me decide to buy this perfume in the first place. The down side to that is that the samples are very very small, which when I spent £100 in total on the site I’d have liked a bit more of product to sample.
The perfume arrived fast and in good condition, it was Free delivery.
The perfume arrives in a silk bag which is very pretty, although in my opinion I’d have liked a choice (silk bag or bigger samples…I’d have picked bigger samples!)
Inside the silk bag the perfume is boxed in a stylish box that is very much in the Charlotte Tilbury style.
Now the good stuff, the bottle is stunning. I may actually keep the bottle long after it’s empty as it’s too nice to throw out.
So here’s my final thoughts on this perfume, the bottle is beautiful, the box is stylish and the smell is divine. If you’re a perfume lover and want something that’ll get you noticed then this might be worth the purchase. If you’re not a big perfume wearer then it might be worth buying the smaller bottle or see if you can get to Charlotte Tilbury to try it out first.
I’ll certainly buy it again, although it won’t replace my all time favourite it will certainly be loved, used and is in my top 3!
