    'A dreamy passionate night'?

    Hi there,

    Would you please tell me if this really sounds natural at all? I mean could adjectives be used like that one after the other one? I seem to have forgotten the rules, and I'd really appreciate it if you could kindly introduce me some resources where I can read up on how adjectives come before a noun.

    We often use more than one adjective before a noun.

    big, strong man
    creamy, smooth skin

    There are many possibilities.

    Sometimes we separate adjectives with commas, as Tarheel did.
