Fragrance Review - Versace The Dreamer

Way back when it was initially released in 1994, I was a big fan of Versace Blue Jeans, and I still have a bottle of it on my shelf. Two years later, Versace released it’s follow up fragrance, The Dreamer, and until recently, I never even knew it existed!

I tried this on a tester at the airport before a trip a few months ago and liked it, but ultimately decided to buy Dior Fahrenheit at the time. When I saw it on Amazon for a bargain price, I figured I should probably grab it while I can!

Fragrance Review - Versace Versense

 I bought this whilst on my Heathrow Duty Free fragrance exploration, after picking up my bottle of Atelier Cologne Clementine California. With that being a niche fragrance and a little more expensive, I wanted something similar, but at a lower price point.

To compensate, photographers use all manner of tricks to capture either the look and feel of real life, or to create a fantasy world. Either way, it's all an illusion.

Technology moves on

There's no doubt that modern digital cameras are advancing quicker and faster than film ever did, and amateur and novice camera users are able to generate stunning imagery with the tools available to them. All this gives rise to a question I keep getting asked over and over again... am I worried that some guy a few yards away can take amazing and technically perfect photographs with his phone? I mean this guy can just click a button and he's got 12+ Megapixels of the latest digital technology at his disposal. That's gotta be seriously worrying to a professional photographer right?
