Ocean Dream is a fragrance offered by Giorgio Beverly Hills. It is marketed as being an eau de toilette and there is a matching body wash available to allow the wearer to layer the scent and increase the overall staying power.
Ocean Dream was released in 1996 and is still available to purchase today. The full size bottle has a very simple yet classic design. The bottle has a slight curve and is blue glass. A silver lid sits neatly on top of the bottle and a gem stone is wrapped around its neck. The bottle is presented in a simplistic white box with blue writing - very fresh in appearance. I feel the packaging is very basic yet pleasant enough to look at and use.
Ocean Dream doesn't offer a complicated range of fragrance notes and is simply designed to be a light fragrance which is floral and fresh. Giorgio claim that Ocean Dream contains a blend of water orange blossom, sea sandalwood, water flowers and pure ocean air.

Giorgio Beverly Hills isn't a brand I am overly familiar with to be honest. I received a 30ml bottle of Ocean Dream in a beauty lot I bought from eBay. I do love trying new fragrances - old and new and must admit that I have been quite pleased with this one. I can see why it is so cheap though as it isn't an amazing, high quality scent but it is pleasant to use and wears beautifully on my skin for the few hours that I can detect it.
A few sprays of this EDT are required to build up a decent level of scent on my skin. Oceam Dream is very refreshing from the moment I apply it. There is nothing complex about the scent - it is simply a bright scent which is perfect for wearing as a subtle fragrance during the warmer weather in my opinion. It doesn't have much character to it but with that being said, this allows it to be more versatile and I personally like to use it as a fragrant spray as opposed to a perfume.
The main feel I get from this scent is that it is ocean like and the name is very fitting for such a scent. It has a fragrant, watery feel and is very chilled out and relaxed. The delicate floral notes from the orange blossom and water flowers blend perfectly to offer a beautiful aroma which lifts the scent up and stops it from being a simple splash of water on my skin. It simply reminds me of a fresh ocean air - very pure with just a hint of sweetness.
I feel that Ocean Dream is a feminine, fresh and revitalising scent. It isn't the most favourable scent but it is nice enough given the price range it falls into. It doesn't last long on my skin and needs a top up after 3-4hours. It is affordable and would appeal to most woman as an everyday, refresher scent. It is a 'happy' scent and very uplifting but doesn't give me a confidence boost like other scents offer but does offer a calming feel.
