My opinion:

This is definitely not a ‘light sunny escada perfume’. This one has character and style. It was created back in 1989 and although normally I hate vintage / ‘old’ perfumes, this one is a true chefs d’oeuvre.
Do you know how your skin starts smelling ‘burned’ after some time spent under the sun? The smell of sea water and sand, mixed with sunscreen. The only thing’ missing? Jil sander sun! It opens up best when your skin is hot. I hate it on the winter time as much as I love it during the summer! So intense, sexy, sophisticated…it’s not screamy and yet you can feel it. I love it!

Where to buy:

Your local perfumery (although this fragrance is pretty hard to find nowadays) or online: fragranceexpert, Amazon.
