After 9 years I'm finally running out of Dreamlife and I think I'm going to miss it. I used to hate this fragance back when I received it as a gift; it was too strong for a 16 year old. Years went by and I fell in love with the intoxicating iris, and the strong sandalwood underneath it, now it only brings back dear memories of cold afternoons by my boyfriend's side. He loves this one by the way. Definitely a dear and iconic perfume in my life.

This should work for me but I genuinely hate this perfume. The sandalwood ruins it for me. Big time. I can't enjoy the patchouli, iris or anything else because all that is overpowered by the sandalwood. One for the trash bin.

Sweet memories. I remember I just turned 15 when my mother offered me this fragrance. It was beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I wore it untill they discontinued. Now I want it back. I hope I find it like Goldpoint did.

It's coming ,it's coming in USA with C8.I was already able to order and receive my first bottles. Soo excited, so happy to have my favorite frag in my hands again, plus reminds me about my happy old times.
About the scent-I actually can't get any of the notes above. I mostly get those small early spring wild violets you can find in country meadows and fields. It's definitely a very heavy scent, and a little goes long way.
For those who like it, keep in mind, it's a limited edition and it's coming in a different bottle. For those, who didn't like it, please respect, it's enough that you already pressed dislike.
THANKS to AVON for bringing DREAMLIFE back. I honestly didn't believe they would ever do that!
THANK YOU,AVON!

Thank you for your response. This is how we learn. I love the complex fragrances of the past such as Interlude and Hope. I think as we develope, we branch out. And some years we revert back to the fragrance colours we wore.

I do appreciate the information and love the critiques on this web site. It helps us all stay true to quality.

I sell Avon/mark. in my Gallery in Boulder, CO. I can still acquire Dreamlife, only in a case though. Since I love the original Heaven Sent, I am tempted, if Dreamlife is indeed very similar to Heaven Sent of Rubemstein. There are no samples available.

If anyone else thinks it is like Helena Rubenstein's Heaven Sent, please let me know.

DreamLife interestingly enough was created by the same perfumer (Calice Becker) that created J'Adore, DKNY Energy and ELs Beyond Paradise. My mother gave me a set of DreamLife shower gel, lotion and the perfume for my birthday. At first I didn't like the perfume. The second time I tried it I got many compliments. I kept getting a whiff of a classic, relaxing mimosa scent and now I use this a lot. For me this is a spring scent. Actually this lasts a long time on my skin. Worth a try! To me this smells almost exactly like Kenzo's Summer. I guess because the mimosa and musk in both.

I have worn a similar fragrance for many, many years called "Heaven Sent." It too is getting more difficult to find, and if it disappears completely, I will just be heartbroken! My sweet husband bought me two bottles of it for Christmas! Not too flowery and sweet (which literally chokes me! I can't even be around someone wearing "White Shoulders" because it makes me deathly ill!) and has a soft, powdery scent. I just love it.

WOW! This perfume brings me nausea. A fellow worker used it as her signature fragrance; at first smelled kind of nice and then it was awful. Can't get the stinky odor out of my head. Sorry for all the fans of this fragrance. I guess that woman spoiled it for me. Discontinued....thank heaven.

Its really too bad this perfume has been discontinued.
I first bought it in 2004 out of the Avon Booklet because I loved the bottle LOL
I was really pleased with the scent once it arrived.
Just bought some more on Ebay and it arrived today :):)
I really missed that smell.Glad I can still find it on line :)

This smells fresh, powdery and earthy. It is a surprisingly classy fragrance for something quite inexpensive. However, it does fade considerably. Nonetheless, it is a nice scent without any distasteful artificial after notes and very pleasant while it lasts.

Don't like it. It's very floral and way too strong! Hits you right in the nostrils.. or at least that's what happened to me.

I got it in body powder several (more than 5) years ago. I liked it so much that I got 10. It still smells like heaven to me. I like to sprinkle on my sheets before going to bed - it's like aromatherapy to me. It's not strong and a little bit different than perfume. I like the powder much more than the fragrance.

THis and NIght magic r 2 of my husbands favs.And,he is very hard to please.FRom the most expensive to the lo down cheapest.IT is a warm woody floral(THAT IS HARD TO FIND),It smells of exotic florals and woods.IT last me all day.The scented sparkle body lotion is wonderful for the summer when u have tanned legs.Smell good and a lil sheen to them.Avon has some really great fumes now and I cant believe there r still sum perfume snobs who say,(yuck)just because it comes from Avon.If u put a lot of their scents into designer fume bottles they would b ooing and ahhhing.Come on,give them a FAIR chance.

I envy those who had pleasant experiences with this, because all I say is that this is a very cold, sharp, metallic scent and the florals seem frozen.

It's a very nice scent and I when I wore it I got many compliments. Unfortunately, I can no longer where it as it gives me headaches, so I stick with the Perfumed skin softener =)

It was one of my best selling products while I worked for Avon together with Little Black Dress. Bearing in mind the price Dreamlife lasts longer than you would normally expect.

I believe that Dreamlife could be considered a modern take on Chanel No 5. The aldehydes are there, though not listed as an offical note. It's soft and powdery, but not at all old-fashioned. MondeoGirl has it right when she says it smells like ''cold autumn sunshine''. This fragrance is VERY interesting in the way that it smells cold and crisp but still very bright (which is the goal of adding aldehydes to fragrances). I don't get any of the wood or vanilla notes others have mentioned. Just a nice crisp scent that will work in all seasons and in most situations, such as going to work, school, casual days, or special occasions. It is very versatile in that sense. I mainly wore this to work when I did wear it, a few summers ago. At the moment, it's sitting in the closet, waiting to be brought out again and put back into my rotation, which I think I will do right now. I don't know exactly why I stopped using it, maybe because it is very unremarkable and plain, but it's a very nice scent that will work for these dog days of summer coming up.

This smelled very acrid and metallic to me. I thought it was a very chemical scent. I guess I got a bad sample,or it didn't work with my chemistry.

Very interesting fragrance, because I can smell vanilla in it, but there isn't vanilla among the ingredients.
One of the best Avon fragrances.
