My little lucky messenger - holiday memories
- I admit it: I have often been tempted to buy blind. In the big mail order business with the smiling packages, fragrances such as "Sun Delight" are often available for relatively little money. Well well - the "late summer holiday" was just around the corner. It should go to the Baltic Sea, in best September weather. I had to place an order anyway and rummaged again in the category : Beauty. Whenever I travel, I try, if possible, not to pack an expensive scent in my bag or suitcase. Too big is the fear that something will break. Some times I have dared to do so and it always went well, but you don't want to test your luck. While rummaging I stumbled over "Sun Delight". At that time I had no idea how the original "Sun" smells. The bottle, however, looked very summery and the price was more than ok - so I rummaged through the comments here and got fixed. "Sun Delight" was added to the shopping cart in a 30ml bottle and I hoped to have found a suitable holiday scent. When the package arrived 2/3 days later, it was opened immediately. Hach, ordering scents blind is quite an exciting thing. I just wanted to test it as soon as possible.
The small bottle with the gentle colour gradient was quickly freed from the cardboard and the fragrant essence was sprayed onto the back of the hand. First impression: mmm, but it smells pleasant. Like freshly showered skin, which was then pampered with a beautiful body lotion. Clean, creamy, slightly sweet, woody and a knife point of fruit on top. The Fragipani gives it a slightly exotic touch, while the chocolate, in combination with the vanilla, provides a very creamy and pleasant sweetness. With time, the initial discreet fruitiness fades away, but the "freshly showered and creamed with a nice smelling lotion" feeling remains. "Sun Delight" seems rather warm overall, but at no time does it seem pompous. This makes it really suitable for the summer. Especially for mild summer evenings. If you are not a fan of the typical summer scents (i.e. aquatas, citric or fruity-fresh scents in general, delicate floral scents, the typical over-sweetened "punch" scents), you will be delighted with this fragrance. It is wonderfully creamy, cuddly, slightly exotic, subtly woody and pleasantly sweet. Neither fresh, nor excessively heavy - you feel well-groomed. You don't draw a cloud of scent behind you, but it is noticeable - the durability is also ok. After 5/6 hours a delicate creamy touch remains on the skin. Really beautiful. "Sun Delight" was my companion on our Baltic Sea journey at that time. I had no other fragrance in my luggage, only him. So I connect the scent with our holiday at that time and whenever I use it, I feel as if I am standing on the Baltic Sea beach at a tepid 23 degrees again and listening to the sound of the sea, while the fresh breeze lets me perceive a delicate touch of "Sun Delight" every now and then, which I wear on my clothes and skin. A true feel-good fragrance, not only for the summer. Yes, at 35 degrees I prefer to use fragrances like "L'Impératrice" by D&G or "Daisy ESF" by Marc Jacobs. But on more pleasant days "Sun Delight" is often the fragrance of choice and one of my favourite summer scents. If the Corona crisis doesn't throw the travel plans overboard, then this September we'll be heading back to the Baltic Sea and there, too, this fragrance will once again be the first choice for the trip. I look forward to creating even more memories with him
