Charlotte Tilbury’s First Fragrance: Scent of a Dream

Sunday, July 31st 2016 0

Old Hollywood Glamour

This August, my favourite Charlotte Tilbury will unveil her first fragrance.

Celebrated with Kate Moss as the face, Scent of a Dream is fragrance that falls into both the floral and chypre categories. Charlotte promises that this “attracts love, light, power, positivity and sex to all who wear it”.

The bottle is beautiful, a vintage inspired glass jar with a large and elaborate head.

Where the magic really comes in is in the spray. Despite looking like a classic gold spritz, this head gently expands to slowly burst the fragrance in the same way that an old fashioned squeezer would have done. Both the bottle and the scent itself are very classic; think of the kind of fragrance you would expect an old Hollywood starlet to wear and display on her dresser.

When I first heard about Scent of a Dream, my prediction was something strong like Dior’s Poison or YSL’s Opium. I have to say that I was right. Scent of a Dream is a heady and womanly concoction.

Top notes: lemon, peach, mandarin, bergamot, saffron

Heart notes: tuberose, violet, jasmin, patchouli, incense

Base notes: ambroxan, hedione, fire tree

Love it or hate it, this fragrance is definitely a head-turner. I think this is going to be one of the most sought after gifts this Christmas.
