Cologne meets island paradise
In the 4711 flagship store on Glockengasse in Cologne, it is always worth exploring new creations. And so I looked around there again more intensively last week. The brand launches the Intense series Kölnisch Wasser, which has a significantly longer shelf life and sillage than the classics of the house, which had to be constantly dabbed.
Sunny Seaside of Zanzibar lives up to his name. Coconut, watermelon, anise, and some exaggerated sweetness from frangipani and vanilla remind of cocktails served on the white beach of the islands off Tanzania under palm trees. Full sun, palm trees, sun oil and lightness. From the water of the Indian Ocean you can smell nothing.
Although I wouldn't object to a good cocktail at a beach bar. My choice would not fall on the creamy, sweet drinks created with coconut liqueur, especially not at high temperatures.
And it's the same with this fragrance. A strong creamy coconut tropical sweetness comes through, which is little masculine and comes along without any harsh accent.
There will be lovers of exactly these cocktails, there are sun worshippers who reach exactly for sun oil with coconut scent, exactly these should test Zanzibar.
And there are people like me who can't take much pleasure in either.
The fragrance evaporates quite quickly, is not too intrusive and retains the lightness of Acqua Colonia. Nevertheless, he remains present for a long time.
I really like the bottles of the series. They are reminiscent of crystal cut with colours depending on the mood of the modern Kölnisch Wasser.
The brand has succeeded in staying in conversation with new creations at prices that are honest without appearing cheap.

Lonely journey
Pieper gave me a sample with a handwritten cover.
Sunny seasick.
Sunny seasickness ?

While I'm still wondering a crossing from Ostend to Dover goes through my mind.

It was April, stormy - and the ship rolled powerfully.
My Anne and I staggered into the great dining room, but there was yawning emptiness.
However, four chefs dressed in white welcomed us joyfully.
They offered us delicious food, but we wanted chips with mayo and cola.
While eating we held our plates, the furniture was fortunately screwed down.
It was a strange feeling to sit so alone in this great hall.
Somehow spooky - but also somehow exclusive.

But then my bladder reported - the Coke had arrived.
We swayed to the toilets - but they were overflowing with passengers.
From one deck to another - the same picture everywhere.
Finally I called in my distress : I just need to pee !
A pale lady left her box and gave me a short admission.
I was grateful to her.

Anne and I then went to the outer deck in the seaman's corridor, watching the mighty breakers and the horizon moving up and down.

This memory makes me smile - and in the meantime I have also deciphered that it is sunny seaside instead of sunny seasick.

Sunny is the scent already - the coconut and the watermelon convey this - but I don't feel near the lake with this sweet scent.
I would have expected more aquatic.
But vanilla and woodiness lend silk a density close to the land.
Vetiver ground additionally.

A nice friendly fragrance - not annoying but also no must-have.
But for a shore leave in everyday life quite suitable.
