Well, poop! I did not expect to be the first to review this. 

 

My bottle arrived Friday, so it's been resting just over 3 days. 

 

In the bottle: Amber and beeswax dominate, but having just acquired an amber and beeswax Yule, I can say that there is some additional busy-ness going on in The Sun Rising's background. 

 

On my skin:

 

Wet, it's mostly amber and beeswax at first, but threads of myrrh smoke soon put in a whispered appearance. As it dries, I can just pick out hints beyond the amber and beeswax. Myrrh smoke continues, interspersed with tinkles of jasmine, peppercorn, and neroli. They're each identifiable, but just for an instant. Amber and beeswax remain constant. 

 

It never does quite settle down for me. All the stages are very pretty, but I have a feeling this one's not yet in its final form. 

 

Edit 3/19 -- Tried this again just after a shower. There's something in it that makes my skin prick and redden in this circumstance. I'd bet the peppercorn. It's not enough to be bothersome, but I thought I'd note it for others.

Definitely getting that jasmine.  It's sweet and creamy, and similar to the one in "Women Copulating."  It's set against the pepper and amber, which give this a dusty undertone.  The neroli adds to the floral sweetness and adds a hint of candied orange.  The beeswax stays in the background for me, though I can tell it's in there.  

 

This reminds me of Alma Venus, though I think it's a bit sweeter and gentler.  It doesn't have those husky cedar undertones.  It's a lovely white floral, and I'm not getting anything harsh or soapy.  Very pretty.

 

As it wears, this is just becoming beautiful, creamy-sweet jasmine.  Really gorgeous.

Beeswax, jasmine, and amber. With a hint of peppercorn. This one is a complex beeswax with jasmine and hints of other things. It's definitely a sexy beeswax. Good throw and wear length.
