This is a real beauty by Avon - woody-fruity and long lasting, without the strong vanilla note. Some of my friends actually hated this, but it's their problem;) On me it smells just amazing and I wish they brought it back! So unlike its horrific coconut follower - Far Away Exotic...

I have almost all of the far away series (dont have the newest 'Gold' one yet) and this is the only one I cant wear. The fruit, coconut? is a greenish note and greens turn very sour on my acidic skin. Otherwise it is a very nice light warm fruity floral on me.

Silage is just above skin, about 3 or 4 inches. Lasts a decent time, about 3+ hours.

Good daytime scent just not for me personally.

Warm creamy vanilla scent with fruity undertones. Lasts a long time but is a skin scent. Comforting charming and non threatening. Suitable for everyday wear. Very relaxing, cozy scent. It's one of those scents that are very well blended.

For me, this was love at first spritz! It has remnants of Far Away Exotic but with way more tropical notes. It has great longevity on my skin. It was a blind buy that I am extremely happy about. I love it!

Ouch!

So this is mainly my "out of the shower and in to bed" fragrance.
And NOT just because it is called far away dreams.

This has a very cozy, light...sweet and gentle "coconut fluff" feel to it. Yes it is tropical but in a very understated way. It feels more like tropical fruits have been covered in a veil of fluffy musk and very subtle florals. It smells fuzzy and a tinge woodsy. I'm gonna take a guess and say the florals in here are violet, some kind of jasmine or tuberose and then something tropical like frangipani.

This is very aptly named, as I said..I wear it to bed. It's comforting and WAY not as loud as the original.

I was so pleasantly surprised by it when I first smelled it. I wish I had gotten more tbh! I may do in the future.

This is the epitome of "innofensive" yes..it's very safe...yes it's simple...but sometimes simple is beautiful..and I would call this perfume beautiful...especially for the price.

Smells like an exotic tropical holiday. I liked it, but didn't finish the bottle. I gave it away to a sister- in- law. I would not find myself reaching for this often. But it is a lovely fragrance. I would consider repurchasing it.

I disagree with moongirl. This is nothing like Far Away Exoticc at all. Exotic is deep, sweet and sexy and more like the first one. This one is softer, more floral and powdery. It is nice in the beginning, but the drydown leaves a lot to be desired. I gave this one away to my aunt who is older and has more of an appreciation for it. I kept the original and Exotic which are far more enjoyable to me. This one lacked the intensity and depth the other two have. It's good if you like softer, more floral fragrances.

I'm sure this has been re-badged as Far Away Exotic. I absolutely love it and the big bonus is that the new purple packaging is perfect for my bedroom colour scheme!

This is just the right mix of fruits, and flowers.
I smell hibiscus, and pinapple at the start, and then the sandalwood, and amber show up after a few minutes. I also get passionfruit in there as well.
This is a nice fragrance, and not too expensive.
I recommend this for daytime, and early evening casual dates.
I also think it would make a nice young lady's first perfume.

The Far Away-line is very close to my heart...not because they are popular in Europe and in the USA( not even in North-Europe, like Sweden), or wallet-friendly, but because they have really good smell and they are really nice fragrances!
..Ok, I'm a little biased, becuse the original Far Away was in the first fragrances I ever felt but nevertheless I really like them..without exception.:)

All perfume from the Far Away range has a powdery softness, which is covers you in a warm and sensual cloud. You'll find this kind of softness in this perfume as well.

Far Away Dream is exotic milky and furry at the same time.Thick and rich mixture of the luscious tropical fruits(peach, mango, coconut, pineapple)and shy florals like gardenia and hiding rose grounded by sweet amber and sensual sandalwood, spiced with a hint of vanilla.Well-blended,creamy, powdery and smooth composition with languid,peaceful aura.

This perfume conjures up the sun-drenched tropical landscapes but I couldn't imagine myself to wear this fragrance in the summer.

Far Away Dream like a fluffy fur coat-just warms me up and transports me to the sunny beach on those frosty Swedish winter mornings.:)

The bottle looks really cheap and the fragrance is just ok. It's juicy, sweet and powdery, all in the same time. I get the tropical fruits, floral notes, sandalwood and amber, but vanilla is also there with her sweetness. Reminds me a bit of D&G The One, I think they are in the same category(The One is much better, of course). Far Away (the original) smells much better than this, also.

It smells like peach and sandalwood on my skin. My husband always tells me I'm not old enough to use it.
I like it but can't feel anything 'plus' in this EDP. As longlasting as original Far Away but not so intensive like that. Not bad. (:

Far Away was a staple for women in my town back when I was a 90s kid. I had figured I would like it as an adult based on the raving reviews scattered online, but I bought a purse spray and immediately disliked it. The longevity was incredible, but the scent would hit me like a strong wave over and over. I had to give it away.

I bought this blindly online, and I am much more pleased with this version. It's a bit lighter on my skin than the original Far Away. The box describes the notes as "a joyful dream of sunny peach, tropical mango, and lush florals unfolding to the soft sensuality of amber and creamy sandalwood". Amber and sandalwood in a perfume are a new concept to me (if you see my perfume list, you'll understand). So when I smelled both, I was like "what is this? smells pretty good!" and they transition well in the dry-down from the top fruity notes.

The dry-down DOES remind me of shampoo or deodorant. But there's nothing wrong with that; it's a clean smell and I find it very pleasant.

My "other" first blind buy from Avon (bought with Rare Pearls) so I didn't know what to expect. It wasn't until I tried Far Away Dreams that I understood the cruel irony of finding a perfume you're not crazy about... but which really works with your chemistry! Gah! I don't know what it is about this perfume, but it really works on me, and the only reason I don't like it is because I don't like fruity scents. However, I can recognize that it's a nice fruity scent, if that makes sense. It has good sillage on me, and stays true to the original scent, but it's just not something I want to smell like. But I wouldn't mind it on someone else.

I love this just as I love the original n_n I am not sure whether it wears off too quickly or whether my nose just gets used to it but I love it. I find it very comforting and not too overpowering. I would buy again and probably would try any other Far Away fragrances that I haven't tried already :)

If Crystal Noir had a little sister, could be this perfume. It's brighter, less sweet and easy to wear. The intense sugary coconut in other gives place to a more gentle interpretation of the white flowers. They're creamy, but more in a milky way, blending with a smooth amber and fruit salad slightly sweet. For me this is delightful and light, great for everyday wear. Not the same as CNoir but for me, somewhere they have some similarities.

I see that I am not the only one who find Far Away Dreams similar to Crystal Noir which I like. This scent is also tropical with its strong gardenia plus amber ( the coconut smell) and sandalwood notes. However FAD is much more for every day use. It is lighter and happier, less sexy, with delicious peachy notes. And this is absolutely not a copy, it has its own character and quality.I love it, one of my favourites! I hope they will not discontinue it. I agree that it could be compared as well to Noa, not in notes but in mood - a clean, refreshing, slightly powdery fragrance with personality. The lasting power on my skin is excellent, I can feel the beautiful smell all around me the whole day and even next morning in my hair! In my opinion it also combines very well wih Avon Thailand Lotus Flower products, because they create the same exotic, coconutty, relaxing ambience. The bottle is nice, too.

My mom just got this yesterday...and SHE cannot stand "Far Away" and gave away her Far Away Paradise after one wearing. With this one, however, she bought the EDP, the perfumed skin softener AND the deodorant roll-on!!

From the back of her box:

"A joyful dream of sunny peach, tropical mango and lush florals unfolds to the soft sensuality of amber and creamy sandalwood."

I, myself, preferred the discontinued (all too soon) Far Away Sensual Embrace to any of the other Far Aways but it IS a very nice perfume...fruity (but not too) with drier flowers and a subtle oriental dry down.

Review to follow upon wearing it!

I really wanted to like this. I love the bottle, I love the name of it but could not find a thing in this parfume that I liked. I smelled my wrist for the whole day each 30 min to give a heart ad buttom notes a try. But didn`t work. I can imagine this parfume could be liked by very rigid, serious type of women - for a strict school teacher or scientist. A little bit philistine like and reminds the soviet time parfumes. Also, it did not evoke any emotions and memories. Too rigid, serious and boring for me.

In my opinion, while Far away paradise is similar to the original, this is completely different; I would rather describe it as a airy, lighter version of Versace Crystal noire: on my skin, I can smell the gardenia and coconut notes very well, and than it turns in a sweet and a little bit powdery fragrance. Beautiful, but the lasting power is very poor for me :(

Sé que depende de cada piel, pero yo no le siemto casi lo floral, yo le siento el mango y el durazno, que son las notas de salida que dice la caja del perfume. La verdad es que es un olor muy cremoso, tambien se siente el coco todo el tiempo. Dura bastante, es de buena calidad, y me costo 15 dolares, o 200 pesos mexicanos, asi es que es super económica. estoy muy emocionada con este perfume, creo que es el ideal para usarse con algun vestido blanco, es muy elegante, se los recomiendo!!

This perfume is sooo delicate...i thought it was a horrible scent just because on my mom, it didn't smell that good...but on me...fabulous! I expected something very different...like sikening coconut, because of the color of the bottle, but it is not coconuty at all! It is kinda' peachy and this is the reason i love it so much! Avon is still impressing me with this beautful fragrances! Great job, AVON!

Far Away Dreams is a bit similar to the original Far Away. They both have dominant amber and sandalwood notes. But as Far Away has vanilla and this one hasn't it is not as sugar-sweet as the original one. Far Away Dreams has the peach note in it which is very noticeable on the top of the scent. It's not a juicy luscious peach but a bit soapy one. But the flowery notes (gardenia) make it a bit softer.
Overall it's mature a bit soapy sweet oriental scent in a gorgeous bottle. I thought it was a round shape bottle (like Britney's Fantasy) but this on is even better to hold in the hand when spraying. And the thing around it's neck makes it a bit more special.

I haven't really fallen in love with a perfume like I have with Far Away Dreams
To me it dosn't smell cheap nor like deodorant. To me it smells comforting sexy , clean sensual.,juicy, tropical & expensive. I wear it to sleep to go out I wear it for any occasion I have stack up with 3 bottles + the one I'm using. And I bought the 2 of each the perfume skin softener , the talc & the deodorant. I am doing this because Avon has the habit of discontinuing fragrances. And I dont want to be without it..

i bought this perfume for my cousin's and i had no idea what it smelled like and i wondered more when she thanked me a lot for it because she is very picky on perfume and she said it was perfect for her. one day we were at her house and we were about to go out with some of the girls and i asked to borrow some and then i knew why she liked it so much and ever since it has been her signature scent.

This is a nice toned down version of Far Away. Regular Far Away can get too intense and is a good lighter Oriental floral from Avon. It does have the usual Avon powder after dry down. I can smell coconut and just a pinch of spice. It could pass for a dusting powder scent and might be good for occasions where strong perfume is out.
I compared it side by side with Estee at the mall since it was supposed to be similar. Estee is much greener and stronger, not the same.
Far Away Dreams might be a nice gift for someone who wears a soft perfume now and then. Not too expensive either.

Gentle tropic scent with musk- it is all season scent.
It's a bit similar to its mama Far away(I adore it) but is has no of its character and power.
Ideal scent for late vacation.
It fades away in two- three hours.

If you like Estee by Estee Lauder you'll love this at a fraction of the cost. I'd have to describe them about the same at first. This one has a nice faint coconut scent, so faint you have to be looking for it. It's nice and clean, and yes, it's like some fresh deoderant also but it's a very quality scent. I like it so much, it may be a favorite in my top 10? This can offend no one because they'd just think it's your deoderant and won't bother to complain!

This is a very nice, not too strong exotic scent. It smells creamy, clean, slightly musky on me.
This is indeed a very wearable scent for every day and it smells expensive. I just totally agree with KellyCrisp that this is a warm, comforting scent, I think this is suitable for all seasons. The mango/musk combination is very unique.
I like this more than the original Far Away, which is too sweet.
Will definately recommend this!! Affordable and quality stuff!!!

Another winner from Avon. Slight family resemblance to the original Far Away in the warmth of the base, but this little sister has a beauty all her own - gorgeous sweet creamy aura, gentle and more subtle than the original, lovely hints of tropical fruit. A real pleasure to wear, as I've been doing most days since I bought it.

To me this perfume smells just like a woman's underarm deodorant! It's not unpleasant, just powdery and generic deodorant like. Contrary to what KellyChrisp has said in her review, I think because of the deodorant like smell this perfume smells quite cheap and if I want to smell of deodorant I'd buy one and not a bottle of perfume! The bottle is very nice though but it's a pity the perfume doesn't quite match up to that.

I was very disappointed that Far Away Dreams didn't live up to my expectations and the positive reviews on here so I'm going to be returning my bottle.

Im really impressed with this perfume it is very beautiful, very long lasting good silage. The sandalwood and amber really make this perfume balanced with the slight sweet notes with hints of coconut on the first day I tried it. and smells expensive and warm. I feel like Im on a good holiday or brings me back to memories of holidays on islands. It is quite a comforting smell. Really good value for money.

Hooray! I've waited weeks for this to come up on the list! I love this fragrance: Delicate florals, lots of mango and fruits, some coconut too - but this is cleverly different from other tropical sents because it hasn't been fused with aquatic, cool notes. Instead it has a definite warmth which means it's great for year-round wear. It makes me think of far away islands under a warm but lazy sun nowhere near the sea (because it omits the aquatic notes) mmmm... Not as sweet as the original Far Away, this is quite different but there's certainly a "family resemblance" in the cosy feeling radiated by the vanilla, amber and sandalwood. This isn't up-class or special enough for a romantic night out or an important social occassion but is great for day wear or cosy nights in.
