Thread: Sunshine in a bottle
It is a listed note on the bottle (and scent pyramid)!!!
Several scents that deliver this "effect" or bring sunshine into a room for me (even if it is nighttime or overcast outside):
Capucci Pour Homme
YSL Pour Homme
Guerlain EdC Imperiale
Faconnable for Men
There are others...but these come to mind quickly!
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
One more to add...
Annick Goutal Eau du Sud!

+ 1 Eau du Sud
Sisley Eau de Campagne
Guerlain Apres L'ondee ("after the rain")....a cheery floral that *supposedly* men can pull off
MFK Cologne Pour le Matin. I haven't tried the Absolu but my goodness, the citrus in the cologne is rendered so blindingly white, it's like looking into the sun. It's sharp and crisp, yet not too transparent. It actually has a bit of weight to it which is interesting considering its high pitched brightness.
I've never smelled it before, but a good friend of mine recently purchased Lacoste Blanc. He literally said "I feel like that smiley of the Sun wearing sunglasses".
+1 ADP Colonia
I don't claim to have a great nose for scent, and my suggestion might meet with some ridicule, but having lived in Sydney my whole life, I find that the summer mixture of surf, sand, sea breeze, sunscreen lotion etc. is captured to some extent by Paco Rabanne XS. No joke.
Dolce & Gabbana Masculine
Snarky is as snarky does.
Insense by Givenchy
Profumum Roma Acqua Viva...natural lemon in all of its nose-filling, spirit-lifting glory.

Sunshine... on my shoulders makes me happy!!!!!!
Hanae Mori HM
Tom Ford Extreme
Terre d'Hermes Parfum
Gucci Pour Homme II
Typically bright orange/tangerine scents evoke "sunshine" to me. That said, Clinique Happy, or Nautica Sunset Voyage would do the trick.
My Ultimate Top 5:
Burberry London (2006)
Eau des Baux (2006)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
Uomo Moschino. After all it does have sunlight accord as a note. Can't beat that!
Acqua di Parma Colonia
MFK APOM homme
Aramis Bermuda Tonic
