Lieu de Rêves, or place of dreams, is a pillowy feminine scent that combines soft floral notes of violet, rose, muguet, and jasmine with a base of heliotrope, tonka, amber, vanilla, cedar, and musk. Gentle aldehydes add elegance to this modern take on the classic powdery floral theme.

Perfumer's Comments: I wanted to use violet, rose, and heliotrope in a powdery scent with a gourmand touch but with some soft woodsy notes and less vanilla than most scents of this genre. The heliotrope, rose, violet, and cedar make nice companions. Like most rose and violet combinations, this scent feels a bit romantic to me, but the drydown is quiet and reflective rather than being a full-blown floral.
