Another Year with nothing to do
If you look at the lyrics from 1969, you might get the impression that it was a long, hot summer (similar to the one that started now) - one that contained beautiful memories (those were the best days of my life) or one that brought with it a certain emptiness and helplessness, the beginnings of punk (another year with nothing to do). But also Woodstock, the moon landing, freedom, boundlessness, rebellion. For Johan Bergelin, the founder of the brand 19-69, an era of freedom, tolerance and counterculture.

"Capri" from the series of these quite different scent journeys conveys here the picture of the summer, in the text sheet enclosed perfume a journey is described by flowering orange groves, more exactly even by the environment of the villa Malaparte on Capri, an estate on a small, projecting rock in the sea, which is considered as the most beautiful house of the world and as scene of the film "The contempt" of Jean-Luc Godard functioned. The small text also refers to the convertible scene of the film, to Brigitte Bardot and the wind in her hair, out in the sea lies the yacht of the Onassis, on which idleness is indulged and cool drinks are served.

The fragrance corresponds to this image, although it comes across as light and joyful, the heaviness, which also shows itself in the tensions of the couple in the film, as well as the bitterness, which is also a feature of this impressive house, are only subtly hinted at in the bitter orange aromas.

A beautiful beginning with orange blossoms and a hint of almond, well unisex balanced, I think, and underpinned by dry herbs as I imagine them to smell in such a rocky area by the sea, aromatic and heated by the sun. The scent radiates lightness, a feeling like a flying scarf in the wind, when the convertible bends around the curve, blowing hair, brightness, shimmering sun. A really beautiful summer scent, light and a little soothing, connected to the earth and the sky.

The only disadvantage for me is the durability - at the current temperatures at and around 30 degrees it would be ideal, but my skin also seems to be thirsty and eats up the beautiful, bright, citric scents in no time, there is only a very small breath left, and that's too little for me
The bottle, on the other hand, I like, it is beautifully simple and lies well in the hand - the colour of the fragrance is beautifully hit, a deep, rich yellow-orange of ripe oranges and setting sun.

Now I am curious about the other scents of this eventful year!
