I do love to talk about the feel of a fragrance (to be honest it’s mostly because there aren’t that many smell words to go around and I run out). Rêve d’Infini has the most beautiful silky, sensual feeling on the skin.
If it was a frock, it would surely sit in Carrie Bradshaw’s closet between the naked dress and that signature singlet/tulle affair. It’s feminine without being frivolous and with the right pair of shoes, could shut down a room. Opening with fresh lichi (a common pairing with rose to mixed effect IMO but here it’s perfect), perfumer Richard Ibanez adds sensual soft peach and warm cedar to the pale rose at the centre of this scent.
Its dry down is reminiscent of that classic powdery rose finish, but sometimes a touch of class is just what’s required.
Also, the rose gold detail on that beautiful Lalique flacon is heaven.
