Amouage Sunshine Woman


The name on this Amouage perfume is Sunshine, and the color is bright yellow, but don't let that fool you; this is not your typical summer scent. There is no big citrus punch here (or even a small one). Instead, when you spray this you'll be enveloped in a pleasant blonde tobacco scent with a healthy touch of apricot jam. 


There is nothing fluffy in this scent, but it does not have the traditional dark or cherry tobacco most perfumes with the note have, and honestly, I don't usually like tobacco in a fragrance. The blonde (or white) tobacco is much lighter but still very rich and robust and I absolutely adore it. Every once in awhile I catch whiffs of it and almond, which makes me very happy. 


Like all Amouage fragrances, this scent lasts all day long. This is a brand that knows how to do luxe in the very best of ways. I sprayed Sunshine Woman on my arm about 12 hours ago and I can still smell it. It's not overpowering though, it's more of a scent that wafts. You catch whiffs of it every now and then. 

The notes here are:

Top Notes: Blackcurrant Liquor, Almond, Davana
Mid Notes: Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine, Vanilla, Magnolia
Base Notes: Cade, Patchouli, Blond Tobacco, Papyrus.

The almond peeks in every now and again, which makes me happy and the apricot (Osmanthus Absolute) is definitely easy to find for the first couple of hours. After that, it is primarily the tobacco that remains the most prominent.

This is an unusual scent that I am so happy to have in my collection. It's a little on the expensive side, but it's worth every single cent and more. Try it before you buy it (my mantra for all perfumes) and if you love it go ahead and indulge. This one is worth it.

  1. I honestly have no idea what this would smell like. I would think of citrus for summer but you said it doesn't have that. It's such an interesting blend of smells, I'd love to give it a whiff and see what it's all about.
