    Default Sunshine Man Hate

    Hi Everyone

    Itís me again and as I know Nothing about these things being the Rookie
    that I am I would like to ask why does this particular Scent get a lot of
    Negative reactions from people?
    Is it something in the actual composition and ingredients that some people
    dont like or get on with?
    Have many of you owned this scent and if so what is your personal opinion
    after wearing it please?
    An Enquiring mind wants to know. 🤔 😉 😊

    Andrew.

    I don't own it but have tried it and thought it was just OK.

    I don't think it gets negative reactions from the general public. It got a lot of negative talk about BN and Fragrantica types especially early on, but I've noticed a lot less recently. The main complaint seemed to be it was overly sweet. Personally, I love it because to my nose it's primarily an immortelle fragrance and I love immortelle. It's very strong though, so I recommend taking care to avoid overspraying. BTW, it's quite similar to Dior's Eau Noire which receives tons of adoration.

    There is not much talk about it. I don't think it is hate just it is one of amouage's lesser known fragrances.

    Ok, it shares a few notes but I just don't get the similarity at all.in wearing

    For me it's a comparison between a dark, elegant, curried gourmand masterpiece and a Popsicle

    Different noses.... They're both primarily about immortelle to me. I can't imagine a popsicle smelling (tasting?) like that! They do bring about different feelings though. The Dior is dark as you say, but the Amouage is bright.

    That's the thing though re the Popsicle analogy -- I don't get any long lasting curry or immortelle smell with Sunshine Man but in Eau Noire it's very prominent throughout

    as you say, no-one is right with these issues

    Loved SM from the first sniff. The vanilla/tonka/slightly boozy sweetness in the base does make it a slight conundrum in terms of when it's best to wear- it's a bit heavy for mid-summer daytime wear which is odd for a scent called "Sunshine".
