Now I have decided to write a comment in addition to the statement, because the scent flashed me just like that.
Let me start by saying that in the 90s, as a schoolgirl, I was a fan of the first hour of SUN EdT, the iconic sun fragrance in the white bottle. Sun cream, summer bath, Italy, sunscreen, soft ice cream and good mood. I had never smelled anything so good before, I wore it all the time, the old one was very powerful, I didn't have much pocket money and so my little 30 ml bottle lasted forever. I also liked to use the deodorant, just as intensive and simply comfortable.
Fast forward to the 2000s: SUN is still there, very often smelled, on many people and often overdosed. I still like it, but I don't have a bottle anymore, it's just often "too much" for me, maybe also because of the helioptrop, which I like but which can be a bit suffocating.
Now I read here the very first good reviews for the new EdP, go to the perfumery in the afternoon after work, actually to test the limited summer 2020 SUN, which, by the way, is the best summer flanker for SUN so far, coconut water and the feeling you have on your skin after a day at the beach, fresh and very light, but at this price you can spray more often, very good for sultry hot days and reminds me strongly of "Miami Glow" by J Lo. But that's just by the way - so I'm testing the Summer2020, take the bottle with me and check the new EdP. I imagine that it has to be even harder than the EdT and I'm sceptical, but you can test it.
The first impression is orange, I think well, I don't need pure orange now, and then there it is: the broom! In the notes it is called "Pfrienginster Absolue" (Spartium junceum), also called rush broom or Spanish broom. He brings it for me! Do you know this fragrance that is in the dunes by the sea in summer? It is exactly this smell that he captures for me here.
Other notes that I find dominant: Amyris (sandalwood-like), orange blossom, of course, which cannot be missing in SUN, as it is responsible for the perceived/associated "sun cream chord", benzoin and a peppery spicy note. What is surprising after a while is that something mineral appears, not salty, not "stony" like in Terre, more like the mineral note in "Arizona". This note is rather fresh, but lasts for a long time and is still clearly visible the next morning. Are these the carrot seeds?
What's not there: Heliotrope, the benzoin is enough to create a lovely sweetness, the jasmine certainly contributes to it.
All in all I must admit, this is the most beautiful SUN I have ever smelled. Price-performance ratio very good and I am positively surprised, this SUN is a real innovation and I believe that it will be a great success.
Whoever loves the sweet heaviness of EdT will find a refreshing counterpart here, which remains true to the original character, whoever cannot (no longer) smell exactly this, will find an alternative, which is not only a flanker, but a real development. 10/10.
