Spicy green
The opening of Liquid Dreams is peculiar to say the least: boldly spicy yet sweetish with also citrus notes, something floral-balsamic, on a woody-vanillic base. Basically a “clash” between sweet-lactonic notes, sharp-zesty notes and something balmy, warm, a bit “leafy” and woody, which I guess may be the narcissus-osmanthus accord. I thought I knew both notes fairly well, but here I had quite a hard time in detecting them – which may be considered as a good thing, as it means they’re really well conceived (or that this doesn’t contain any, but I’ll keep my good faith). Undoubtedly a nice opening phase, intriguing and positively “messy”, albeit a bit heavy and with some loud (perhaps too loud) contrasts; then it progressively becomes warmer and finds its “balance” once it, say, “tunes in” with your skin. The blend becomes then more refined, more harmonic, more focused on a quite pleasant and fairly realistic earthy floral accord with “dirty” and almost indolic nuances on one end, and citrusy-lactonic on the other. Basically it loses a bit of the initial sweetishness and overall power. Now, what I don’t like personally is a persistent, and increasingly dominant harsh spicy note or accord, halfway nutmeg and cloves, which is really haunting and kind of cloying, messing with what I consider really nice here instead – all the floral-earthy side. That, and some metallic whiffs and hints which come and go. Overall it’s not a bad scent, a bit 1980’s inspired (that sort of tacky loudness), but surely uncommon, far from trends and fashion and creative, with an enjoyable realistic natural feel. It would just need a couple of fixes in my opinion.

Fresh and green
This is my first April Aromatics fragrance and it's really nice. Completely natural and that is noticeable.

Liquid Dreams opens with a fresh blast of lemon peel and linden blossom, the lemon peel recedes a little bit (but is never completely gone) to make room for the flowers to shine. Although the narcissus and osmanthus are present, the linden blossom stays very obvious throughout the lifespan. You have got to love linden blossom and lemon to like this fragrance, but if you do you are in for a treat.

The ingredients that are used in Liquid Dreams are absolutely top quality. Liquid Dreams is somewhat linear, equally suitable for women and men and has a longevity of more than 3 hours on my fragrance eating skin. The price is steep (€ 169,- for a 30 ml bottle), but well worth it and if you are looking for an all natural high quality fragrance April Aromatics is a very good choice. I'm very curious to try the rest of her fragrances, next is Calling all Angels (which is just rewarded best in Artisan category of The Art and Olfaction Awards 2014).

Liquid Dreams will be perfect for the very warm days in spring and summer.
