April Aromatics Liquid Dreams is when spring meets summer. There’s delicate yellow spring florals mixing with refreshing citrus and sharp linden blossoms.
Liquid Dreams opens with a big blast of natural lemon. And then it reminds me of that “refreshing” spa water; an infusion of water with lemon, lime and cucumber slices. It’s refreshing and effervescent. The linden peeks through. It’s tart and more green when smelled from a distance. Up close, it’s more floral reminding me of linden mixing with pollen-y daffodils – a spring meadow. And that is what Liquid Dreams dries to – a spring meadow with green grass and sunny florals.
If you’re familiar with the line, Liquid Dreams is like Unter de Linden but more citrusy and with more “eau de cologne” elements.
Notes listed include Sicilian lemon, linden, narcissus, and osmanthus. Launch date 2012. PERFUMER – Tanja Boching
Give Liquid Dreams a try if you like refreshing citrus scents. Or if you like perfumes like April Aromatics Unter de Linden, Tauer Zeta, Annick Goutal Eau de Ciel, Parfums DelRae Debut and/or Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis. I consider Liquid Dreams as unisex. I think it’s a good choice for discrete day fragrance or something to wear in summer/warm climates.
Like all of the other April Aromatics perfumes that I’ve tried, Liquid Dreams has above average projection and longevity for an all-natural perfume.
The 1 oz bottle of Liquid Dreams retails for €169 at April Aromatics.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Linden “eau de cologne” – A refreshing citrus floral. It’s a good one to wear for “day” or in the summer. It’s difficult for me to “invest” in something at this price point that reads so “warm weather” to me when I live in a climate that is mild.

Oddly enough, Liquid Dreams and Unter den Linden were my least favorite perfumes of the line (and I say “oddly” since they seem to be the favorites of blogging friends), whereas pretty much everything else was a huge love for me. But maybe tomorrow I’ll re-try Liquid Dreams while revisiting your review. Your description makes me want to give it another shot!
Linden is not easy and I’m not a fan of citrus, so this one isn’t my favorite from the collection. However, I think for an all-natural citrus with linden that it is good and worth recommending to those that are looking for such a thing.
[…] Elvis H. Musk a try if you like osmanthus or radiant florals. Or perfumes like April Aromatics Liquid Dreams, Hermès Osmanthe Yunnan, The Different Company Osmanthus, LUSH 1000 Kisses and/or By Kilian Flower […]
