Tommy Hilfiger Dreaming

Fragrance Review: Dreaming by Tommy Hilfiger

As I hinted a few months ago, Tommy Hilfiger's new fragrance, Dreaming, is an attempt to appeal to a slightly more mature audience than its teenage base. It is supposed to emulate "the sensation of falling in love," and supposed to make women feel "seductive, tempting, and inviting."

Based on the description, I was hoping for something a little more complex. Dreaming is floral at first, and then it dries down to a pleasant but unremarkable peach scent. It smells good, but it isn't very exciting — which, coincidentally, is how I've usually felt about Hilfiger's clothing. Both are built for a mass, mainstream audience that wants to be fashionable, but isn't comfortable with big risks.

When I feel so-so about a fragrance, I ask other Sugars for their opinions. (Fragrance is often a subjective thing.) Giggle thought the florals were dangerously close to cloying-old-lady territory, and sadly, she wasn't alone. Nobody hated it, but nobody loved it, either. And I think that's where I sit, too: It's a nice enough fragrance, but at the end of the day, I would rather be memorable than nice.

To jackie blain, who are you to put down someone's body chemistry? You don't know the above people to comment on their chemistry. I'm sure they're all valid on their disdain for that fragrance.

I'm so sorry that you all feel this way about this fragrance! I absolutly loved it! Finally i have found my sent the one that compliments me best. I love the fact that it is a light airy playful sent and not an overbearing musk that you have to hold your breath around. Maybe you guys just don't have the right body chemistry to pull it off.

I just bought D&G's The One. Now that's a nice fragrance. This doesn't sound like something I'd like. I try to stay away from too flowery fragrances.

I've never been a fan of his fragrances. I'd have to check it out.

I thought the exact same thing - It smells ok, but didn't exactly knock my socks off. I'll pass on this one!
