As the painter looked at the gracious and comely form he had so skilfully mirrored in his art, a smile of pleasure passed across his face, and seemed about to linger there. But he suddenly started up, and, closing his eyes, placed his fingers up upon the lids, as though he sought to imprison within his brain some curious dream from which he feared he might awake.
-From The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde.
Hallward’s Dream is built upon a base of sandalwood and musk with a bright and bitter bergamot flair. The citrusy top is complemented with a touch of basil and oakmoss to bring out the greener notes of the opening accord, while hints of violet and talc round out the scent and soften the blend. This luxurious fragrance is reminiscent of a slow afternoon at an Italian barbershop, with a darker base that cuts through the bright bergamot core.
