Gracing our dressing tables just in time for the sunshine, the latest scent from Van Cleef & Arpels is a ‘sunnier’ take on the ever-ethereal Rêve.
The imaginary, dream-like story behind the fragrance just makes it all the more appealing, with talk of a magical garden of lilies and a summer night’s dream – who wouldn’t want to add it to their scented summer line-up…?
‘Nose’ Nathalie Feisthauer’s feminine composition embodies a floral, fruity bouquet of pear, neroli and peach blossom at the top, followed by a rather exotic heart of frangipani, osmanthus, iris and lily. The base is warmed with notes of amber, sandalwood and cedar.
