Leaking Sun Cream
Actually, I only wanted to buy the diptyque candle "Maquis" on Saturday, when my favourite perfumery "Guide me oh thou great redeemer" was drumming at me. All of a sudden I realized: I had gotten into the wedding of Meghan and Harry. The perfumery ladies had stopped working and stuck in front of an I-pad stuck between Sisley lipsticks.
Only one elderly lady I know turned to me: "I have often met Princesse Grace of Monaco in my life," she said, "that was a different league.
Since no one paid attention to us, she stuffed two handfuls of luxury samples with my candle, "for the summer," she said conspiratorially. And Sunshine Women was there several times.
I've always wanted to try that. Would it suit Grace or Meghan more?
And why does it trigger so many emotions?

First of all, Sunshine Woman is an outstandingly handcrafted composition, which first in the second cycle, then in longer, precisely calculated time intervals, always puts a new twist on the parquet. First harmlessly citric-mandelious, then currant-vanilla, then the tobacco crawls out, then the whole thing combines with jasmine, patchouli to an overall picture.
And what's that supposed to mean?

I think it has to do with the dreams of a carefree life and the idea of a holiday paradise. For the cocktail on the Caribbean beach wind in the hair on the cruise ship woman type Sunshine Woman is certainly a revelation. And conjures up exactly this lightness in everyday life.

Since my childhood I have spent the beach days at Cap Ferrat or in Villefranche. During the high season, bathers lubricate themselves with sunscreen so much that streaks often form on the sea water in the afternoon. The united Pampe from Monoi Tahiti oil over L´Oréal to Lancaster on all bodies in my periphery smells rise, which are congruent in the harmony with Sunshine Women - all the more if under the parasol still smokes. In short, Sunshine Woman triggers my beach legs on the spot.

When I wore it on the weekend in the crowded bus in Nice, surrounded by mostly English tourists, it almost made me sick. I thought everyone had to smell it, think about rancid, leaked sunscreen and feel disgusted.
It wasn't like that. It's all just an idea in your head. Like most perfumes. I guess Meghan would look better than Grace. Grace could have worn it on Jamaica in 1955. But who knows?

Yellow is not summer!
Oh, yeah. :-)
Once again I write an entry for an exclusive, who was allowed to move in with me thanks to Mrs. LiLaLinchen, in form of a very generous addition. :-)
Because of the great ratings I expected the sun out of the bottle, the love of life, the summer to spray.

What I did get...was currant liqueur under an old cedar-juniper branch; around it grow a few flowers, including strawflowers.
Later the vanilla also comes along, VERY much later (1-2 hours?!). It'll be nicer, but not really nice.
It remains quite herbaceous, kind of strawy. Sweet, too, but so... fermented?

Yeah, it smells a little bit like summer day, summer forest, fall, I don't know. But even when the vanilla chips away, it's still... strangely herbaceous that I never know here in which season drawer I can put it?
Does it get better in the spring? Hm. Well, it's nothing to me. Yesterday I had sprayed four fragrances, and in between I kept thinking "Yeeeeehhhh, which one smells so terrible?! Yes, the Amouage sunshine. But I think the bottles are so beautiful and somehow, for whatever reason, people are inclined to make the fragrances look good. But no, this one's not for me. If it was at least ala "Oh yes, nice, but try it with more heat", but it is not. He's not with me, I don't like to smell his wrist, we're not made for each other.

Sun for the soul
Aventus I approach myself by nature rather a little more cautiously - oriental fragrances are on the one hand not so my ride, on the other hand it becomes with this fragrance house very fast times somewhat more expensive. But when a bright yellow bottle shines at me, it has almost happened to me. It became dramatic quickly when I noticed that the ladies' bottle smiled so seductively at me. But since the Amouages always appear as couples, the search for their male counterpart turned into an almost two-year wait. But I was disappointed in the end, because the men's fragrance has hardly anything in common with the women's version, but above all nothing beautiful. Hopefully more of them soon at another place.

If one acquires an Amouage perfume, the scent in a solid brick of a cardboard receives one, here in a very appealing light blue, which reminds by its grain of broken smallest waves on the beach or in the pool, on it a playful golden sun. A wonderful contrast is the glittering yellow of the bottle - puts it in the sunlight and the grip on the Ray Ban becomes imperative. I don't have to mention the fact that the bottle lies in the hand like a glove. And although I am not necessarily a fan of oriental ornamentation, I am always pleased to see that the bottle's design is not completed by a showy and at the same time harmonious lid and logo. Less is like so often more and here it is perfectly balanced.

From the beginning I was fascinated by the smell of the omnipresent and voluminous Cassis chord. I like this taste in lemonade, I love blackcurrants in cocktails. Here the same sound is reproduced optimally. I am glad that this note lasts long and clearly in the fragrance and does not fly away as a top note after the first sniffers. "Sunshine Woman" is a fragrance for aroma therapy. You have to soak him up and let him in. Here, one gradually discovers some very soft, slightly powdery, almost balsamic floral notes, which never surpass the Cassis chord, but rather underline it. At some point you'll notice some slightly woody and spicy notes, in which the fruit gently rises at the end.

I find no words, how relieved I am that no oriental notes and certainly no oud mix with it. Thus it remains an international fragrance with summery Mediterranean hints. With its very soft, fruity and flowery accents, "Sunshine Woman" is clearly a feminine fragrance that I like to wear as a man. Not so much in public, but rather as a fragrance to feel good at home, if you want to get some of the smells and feelings of summer and the sun into your house during the dreary and dark season of the year.

Despite its soft facets and subtle chords, the fragrance is surprisingly stable with eight to ten hours. His presence unfortunately doesn't go beyond arm length, which is a pity on the one hand, but on the other hand I'm sure that here, too, one would be almost too much.

I always argue with myself why Amouage didn't release an adequate men's version of "Sunshine Woman" for me. On the other hand, I am also happy to help, because I had to struggle my way through sometime and buy this sinfully expensive women's fragrance and so I got the ideal for me feel-good fragrance home. Sun for the soul ...

Hot dance
Amouage...Amouage, Amooouaaaaaaage.
That word alone puts me into the Thousand and One Nights.
Scheherazade with her stories. yes...
Be that as it may.
It is evening and my husband has invited me to dinner. The rascal always does that when he has done something wrong and has to bend it straight again. Hmm... yes, I like to eat well. And he knows it
Chic upscale restaurant with evening music, also dancing if you like it. I am not so much the dancer, then rather disco, where the dance arts are not so relevant. But that's not the issue now.
There are 8 courses, beautifully fine with decorated biscuits on the plate. Between the corridors one may swing the dance leg. We eat, talk and observe. Cultivate our marriage, so to speak.
An older couple has taken a seat at the neighboring table. She - very well-groomed, blonde. He is tall, visibly aged, well sprung, Mediterranean appearance. When we already came to our table, the Lord winked at me in greeting. "Nice," I thought. Again and again there was a little conversation. The gentleman made charming compliments and constantly winked in my direction. Sometime between aisle 4 or 5 he rose, visibly anxious and steered in our direction.
"May I ask the lady for the dance?" bathei he looked at my husband "I'd love to." My husband winks at me. Until I can even understand with whom the gentleman wants to dance, the good guy pulls my hand and I have no choice but to follow him onto the dance floor. The gentleman puts both hands around my talie, a rollator handle like this, and off we go. We rock back and forth like this. I look embarrassed at my husband, who is visibly enjoying himself, talking to his wife.
The Lord at my side comes so close to me that he breathes down my throat most of the time.
"O... You're rich... They smell like my summer home."
"Really? Where is it?"
"Caucasus, you know where that is?"
Well, I was good at geography. I nod and try to describe to him roughly the geographical location of the area.
"When I was a little boy, there was an apricot tree in our yard. Which was so huge that we could play under it when we were kids. He gave beautiful, cool shadows. The tree bore so many fruits that nobody was able to pick them. That's how they fell to the ground. But the sun was burning. You know, in summer it was up to 50 degrees Celsius, so these apricots dried on dusty ground. There we had, boys, until autumn always something to eat on the street. You pick those up, dust them off, and hmmm... I haven't done so well in Germany. They reach for these apricots and the hot Caucasian sun."
Whoa...That was a compliment...

Music has died down and we went to our places. I still had to prop the Lord up when I left... But in my head, for the whole evening... The Arabian Nights. Chess Avenue. Caucasus. Amouaaaaage.

What smells so yummy in my room? Fucking leaked! Sunshine that was you?
Actually, I was planning to dedicate a different kind of review to this beautiful fragrance. I wanted to go especially on the fact that he reminds me of a fictional character from a certain film. But only later more.

I had already started writing the review yesterday evening, to be more specific. Like probably everyone who writes a review I sprayed the fragrance and then started typing to really have the scent in front of my eyes again. Sunshine I've had for a while ie I would have said until this evening that was more than enough time to get to know it.
The sample I have then probably forgotten in the evening in my bed. Well, what can happen there?
(After spraying I aired again!)

When I woke up in the morning, I also did not notice anything special. Not until I left my room, got some fresh air, and then came back in.
Oh my god, why does it smell like the delicious apple cookies my mom always bakes?
They are always in a half moon shape and filled with apples and cinnamon, dusted with powdered sugar to boot.

The glorious idea that something could have leaked, I did not come. I've never been such a thing but another fragrance sprayed I had this morning also not yet.
Until I then found my beloved sample of Amouage Sunshine on my bed. The cap including the upper part was off and the contents (4 ml) completely empty.
That explains it now at least.
I have to say that even though I've been testing the fragrance for months, I didn't even have that association.

Whether I should test fragrances more often like this? One perceives them suddenly differently. ;)

So right now, as I type these lines, I am sitting on my Amouage Sunshine fragrance bed.

To me, it smelled more like a peach dessert with tobacco beforehand, to say the least.

Then when my brother came in and we talked briefly I said, "wait tell me what you smell" without also giving any more hints.

The first thing he said, "perfume"

Yeah great thanks for the help haha

But then: "Hey it smells like the cookies that mom always makes."
So there it was confirmed again.
How could I not smell that out before!

The one that sticks out for my nose is, especially since something gourmand which goes in the direction of peach or as described above apparently mom's cookies. Of course I do not know all the notes which then means googling! Lo and behold osmanthus which is in Sunshine is supposed to smell like peach! This is joined by the bright tobacco note.
These are really the two notes that stand out for me the most.
On the skin you can smell the tobacco strongly out, in the air I have honestly almost not noticed it at all.

In the beginning, I also did not quite know whether it is with Sunshine and me something, because the tobacco is really present and also maybe a little pungent at the beginning. But the more I tested it, the more I liked it. Perhaps it must also be said that I'm not a smoker and actually hate the smell of it.

Sunshine fits, as a name well somehow the fragrance makes me happy and I schnupperTE ;( like to her, even if I have worn another fragrance.
The durability is top! It lasts and lasts. The sillage is accordingly also super.
Sunshine is really a fragrance that has needed something but now belongs to my absolute favorites :) and I imagine him on late summer evenings beautiful :)!

If you are interested the fragrance I could imagine well on Malèna from the movie: "The magic of Malèna"

The movie is set in the 40s and is about the beautiful Malèna, whose husband had to leave her because of the war.
In the small town they gossip about her and worse as lust is aroused in the men and bitter jealousy in the women. Short and sweet she just wants to be left alone and has a hard time.

There is a very famous scene from the film:
Malèna is walking towards a small café in high heels, wearing a tight black dress. She has cut off her long black hair. They are now red and short. Her lips are also red. She sits down on a chair, puts her cigarette in her mouth and all the men gather around the beautiful Malena and offer her their lighters.

Maybe one or the other knows at least this scene :)
There you have it the scent reminds me of an elegant woman from the 40's smoking and smelling of delicious peach and apple pie.
Thanks for reading!

Love

Lara :)
