Perfume: Ghost Dream

ghost dream perfume review

Ghost Dream* was launched earlier this year with the aim of inspiring young women to embrace their femininity and independence. What that means in terms of scent is the most delicious oriental floral fragrance that even those who would normally shy away from florals will most certainly enjoy. As a newcomer to Ghost I didn't know what to expect, but from the mermaid-esque pink and blue bottle to the perfume inside, this is something quite special.

In fact, the moment I smelt this musky, sensual perfume, I was immediately reminded of my well-loved Charlotte Tilbury Scent of A Dream perfume. Not only are their names similar, but they share a lot of the same heart and base notes. Ghost Dream has top notes of rose essential and aquaflora, heart middle notes of violet, heliotrope, Moroccan orange flower, Egyptian jasmine, and base notes of ambroxan, musk and patchouli. We all know how much I gravitate to rose so from the start I knew this was going to become a new firm favourite of mine.

Ghost Dream is the most intriguing fragrance, in that it is most definitely a floral, but a very delicate one at that, with a touch of freshness which I would attribute to aquaflora. It's musky and warm, yet not in anyway powdery or overpowering. Dream is such a modern floral; its very sensual, yet uplifting and fresh. It's the perfume I reach for on days I have a lot of things to get done as it makes me feel my best, like an awesome fitting LBD or your favourite red lipstick. That extra get up and go that I sometimes need.

The lasting power of this perfume is very good. I hate needing to reapply fragrance throughout the day, although I would feel quite smug pulling this gorgeous geometric, faceted bottle out of my bag on the go! Its so stunning.

For under £30 this is quite an exceptional perfume. If you were debating whether to check out Charlotte Tilbury's offering, I would recommend giving Ghost Dream a chance first. As my first foray into Ghost fragrances I am very pleasantly surprised. This could be the start of a new obsession...
