Totally unisex imo and much more interesting than the male version. Ok, it's a sweet vanilla floral, but for me, it has some bite and character in the base with an almond, patch and tobacco mixture pushing through and lifting the whole fragrance to a new level.

It costs not far south of £300, which is ridiculous, but it sure smells good to me.

A perfectly balanced, delicate vanillic floral...

I really love this one. It's a wonderful fragrance which shows a very different and transparent side from Amouage. Usually the house is famous for it's heavy laden, seductive and decadent oriental spices, with emphasis on frankincense and resinous woods. This one is different. Sunshine Woman is a beautifully soft, elegant floral which has osmanthus flower, jasmine, magnolia and tobacco blossom. But not only that, it also has almond, blackberry and vanilla. The white flowers and vanilla work beautifully together, along with the almond. I love it!

I think it is basically unisex, and inoffensive... but it would smell absolutely fantastic on a woman. In fact, I can see this one being a wonderful wedding day perfume, as it is so happy and transparent. Amouage have once again created something very beautiful and delicate here, a great perfume in my opinion, and very well balanced. It's one to try for women in the spring and summer. Really lovely!

Cream of Barbie Plastic may have been a better name but it ainít got quite the same cheery ring as Sunshine. Of all the things this perfume is not, it certainly is not chrome yellow. Nope, itís a chunky vanilla brown with a tottering tower of foam balancing on top.
At its centre is a cookie dough vanilla paired with sweet cured tobacco Ė itís a dense, somewhat airless and light-deprived accord and it sure is dominant. Around it swirl sympathetic notes handled in a manner that make them seem a touch overblended Ė giving them that foamy, indistinct quality. Thereís a milky almond, osmanthus given the scented eraser treatment, berry-like fruity notes (blackcurrant, davana if the notes list is to be believed) which are dulled rather than bright, the aching molar variant, and traces of what smells like acetone. What they all eventually achieve is cream of Barbie plastic.
I actually found it quite more-ish during the first few hours, thinking this stuff would be worth a punt at 20 bucks max. But that wore off when confronted by its unrelenting monotony over the course of the day.

The fruity blackcurrant opening has a nut-like undertone and is quite pleasant, but the subsequent drydown is disappointing: a generic white-flowery core mixed with jasmine; the base adds a light patchouli note. Overall this is fairly generic in nature and lacks convincing expression of more characteristic notes of depth.

Now Amouage has always been great in creating complex, rich and spicy scent, but in its early days it has been able to produce sunnier fragrances; Arcus being a good example. Sunshine, however, is hardly a mediocre product at best. I get moderate sillage, good projection and about seven hours of longevity. 1.5/5.

Although I donít think itís as nightmarish as Luca claimed in his 1-star review, Sunshine is grim ó especially since itís from Amouage, who appear now to have completed their transformation into a Western cliche.

Sunshine opens with a fruity-floral puree thatís not that far removed from a celebuscent ó a bit less teeny-bopper perhaps. But whatís most surprising about Sunshine is that itís not a sunny, beachy scent at all ó itís a tobacco perfume, and quite a strong one at that. The tobacco is blonde without a touch of smoke to it, similar to the tobacco used in Or du Serail and it definitely conjures up images of a pipe or a humidor more so than that of a beach. It's all strung over a syrupy vanilla and patchouli combination thatís quite sickly. The fruits and flowers form a sort of creamy heliotropin effect with a touch of citric herbs thrown in as a last-gasp gesture at ventilation. Itís a cacophony, really ó a loud, syrupy sweet scent and lacking all of the taste, refinement, and articulation of the feminines that Amouage have released in the past. It's almost like Amouage have shacked up with Bond No. 9 or Montale or something. Sunshine isnít sunny or uplifting in any capacity, but it achieves a reasonable pipe tobacco effect. The sugary, fruity florals are a killer though. Itís as if someone took a decent fragrance and then sprayed the entire Britney Spears line over the top of it. Toxic indeed, and the price is a joke. My guess is that it'll be at the discounters within six months.
