Ever since Mariah Carey released her twelfth (yes, twelfth!) fragrance "Dreams" nearly a month ago, I couldn't stop thinking about it. The American Idol judge/all-around diva described the scent as a mix of vanilla, honeysuckle, and salted caramel apple, which represented her transition "from childhood to performing on the world's stage, to being in love, to feeling loved." Needless to say, I was intrigued—intrigued enough, in fact, to actually take this scent for a spin. Like, IRL. The bottle came in a purple box complete with her Category 5 wind-blown campaign photo (above) and inside lay the oh-so-fitting butterfly-adorned fragrance. Much to the avail of my nearby co-workers, I doused myself in the stinky stuff and took to the streets, er, cubicles to find out what others thought about her new scent. The catch? I didn't give them any hints as to who made it/where it came from, and this is what they said.
