Tonight, I'm writing again about Sun by Jil Sander. I delete my previously written article, which I liked very much by the way, and try
to once again show this fragrance my enthusiasm and honor. I've known Sun since the 90s, again and again the "familiar" scent dipped into my nose.
Whether it was a class trip by train, eating ice cream, I often smelled the scent. A classmate smelled so delicious and sweet that I kissed her on the forehead. The fragrance
i was literally drawn to her. Today, I know (with 100% certainty) it was Sun from Jil Sander. Also my teachers wore this "sweet, fruity powdery"
Fragrance. It was like a feeling, as a scent, like something that belonged to them. The scent also radiated its sun rays in winter, but more about that later...
For years I smelled this scent, but I paid little attention to it. Maybe it's because I never asked what smelled so good. But scents forget
we never will. Even decades later you can remember a fragrance when you have it back in your nose. In my nose I had Sun 2006: At that time I sprayed
the scent offered in a set at Douglas. It smelled delicious and pleasant. But again, I ignored the scent. And so it took another year
before I bought it. Not least by the many positive customer reviews from the Internet driven and with the feeling: "He was not so bad nevertheless".
2007, on a hot summer day in August I bought it in the 75 ml version from Müller and was happy: From then on I wore the fragrance for weeks if
not even for months. The sweet, fruity, vanilla, balsamic powdery scent inspired my soul. It was like a saviour, like a comforter full of warmth. I
became obsessed with Sun. Whether falling asleep, going for a walk, etc., the scent was always on my side. It was like "happiness hormone" therapy. Sun accompanied me
on vacation, suitable everywhere. Conscience songs I listen to, I associate with Sun.
At the end of 2007, when it began to get colder, the days shorter and snowy, Sun was my light and my warmth. With this scent I defied the cold.
To walk to work, this fragrance accompanied me on my 30 minute walk, like a shield in the dark. In front of me lay snow, the wind
i saw the windows of the houses and who was awake and who wasn't. At some windows there was light to see, I heard someone showering and
out of a window just ran the morning news.
Then I thought: Would be nice to be nestled in my bed with Sun in this cold weather. Sun is a real cuddly scent. Warm, comforting, versatile:
I am describing my vintage version (bottle 1998) and the 2007 version, which is from the year 2005 (according to batchcode).
The fruity top note is special and distinctive, very different from today's version. At that time there was a special note in it, which I did not use in words
but which has definitely been missing for a decade. Also the heart note is different has a different course and has become more tame much.
The base note is similar for both, I as a connoisseur would even claim that the current Sun consists only of this note. The current Sun I have umpteen times
tried in the drugstore or perfumery.
When spraying on comes a hunch of the Sun fragrance. Lasts then 3-4 hours and is then gone. This 3-4 hours was Sun (Vintage) after a wearing time of 12 hours then
at the end. And even then it smelled much more multi-faceted. Richer and more intense. Today, the fragrance smells like a dupe, like a shallow memory of a wonderful

reappears and warms us with its rays.
My rating refers to the vintage version !
