Strolling from store to store
Even from the outside, the bottle smells like a shop in India. I still know Indian shops from the early 80s and have already reported about them in the commentary on Karma by Lush.

From Dream of India I have a travel bottle for scooters and of course I don't reach the same intensity as spraying. The orange speaks relatively briefly to word ("Hello, it's me, the orange. I'll stay in the background.") then it smells quite spicy and bitter directly on the skin, especially after curry. It smells like Champaka, too. Champaka (Magnolia champaca) is a flower that Indian women like to stick individually in their hair. Champaka is also used in fragrance and massage oils and in the popular Nag Champa incense sticks. Since there was no curry at all in the Indian shops, it will probably be the Champaka, which is mainly responsible for the "Indian shop" impression.

Family tester Q confirms the "India Shop" fragrance of Dream of India. She was once in India. In India, however, it does not smell like in the 80s in the India shop but after "32 Venenum". Chai tea is listed as a fragrance in both fragrances, I don't notice anything of it at Dream of India, but maybe it can also be found in curry.

If there was no curry in it, or if the curry was much weaker, you could talk about it again. So Dream of India is too unfunny for me, bitter, earthy, dull, curryistic.

In Dream of India, what you use it for is totally obvious: If you were the owner of an Indian shop in the 80s, or if you have particularly sentimental memories of 80s Indian shops. If you have a spray bottle, you can also have an India party, a Bollywood movie night. To roll over the walls with the roller flacon, I imagine, however, rather laboriously. Maybe you can put it in the sauce.

I find it funny that Cuero de Mexico smells like a modern esoteric shop, but Dream of India smells like an 80s Indian shop. Travel through the decades of esotericism with Arts&Scents. Do they also have a Swedenborg scent (Läder från från Stockholm) or an Oracle scent (Hallucination of Delphi)? I remain in eager anticipation
