The head peels off, the here and now begins, enjoy the moment....
Sex and the Sea literally explodes at the beginning with a deafening (rather, nasal) barrage of impressions!
Primarily hits me first a heavy sweet fruity mixture of pineapple and coconut, already after a short time floral, but also spicy elements mix in...here so much happens at the same time and the senses go crazy! Almost like the act mentioned in the fragrance title, an ocean of impressions rushes through you and you limit yourself only to this one experience! This fragrance can't be compared to anything and is just beguilingly loud in its way! But after the climax, the excitement curve flattens steadily, sweet, soft parts like sandalwood or vanilla now create a rather cuddly, lying in each other's arms feeling, the head becomes more rational again. Nevertheless, even after many hours, a certain tension remains and small tingling sparks rise again and again. This fragrance has something magically attractive about it, it plays with repulsion and attraction at the same time, sparks curiosity, yes a constant desire for more! Oh how well this name fits...

Insane durability with extremely strong projection.

When is this fragrance just appropriately wearable?!

Breaking factor towards infinity
I was tempted by a review to sample. I was tempted by the animal notes. And they are not the problem here at all. This olfactory impression - I don't like to call it a fragrance - is not animalistic. That in front.

But if I had looked at the sheet music first! I don't like coconut. I don't like pineapple. That was my mistake, no question. However, these two ingredients are terribly synthetic, which increases the nausea factor infinitely. It gets a little better in drydown. No, I shouldn't say better. It's more tolerable. It retains an odor reminiscent of vitamin pills and peach tea. The association of sex and sea, on the other hand, is very far off

Mannered sexual intercourse after too much Pina Colada at Robinson Club Mallorca
The Robinson Club on Malle:

A middle-aged couple books the same holiday every year.
You have to go to the Robinson Club, yes, there you know what you have and you don't have to worry about anything.
They like to take part in the evening events, and the programme also has a lot to offer them during the day: Boat tours, hiking, exploring cities etc.
They already have a few years of being together on the hump and more are to follow, both of them are One evening, however, should the tenderly flickering flame of love rekindle, hach wie herrlich.
Actually, they were almost lying in their premium beds. He wanted to watch sports, they wanted to watch the sunset. That's when they noticed a lot of activity at the pool bar. A small celebration, usual for club vacationers, was in progress there. So both decided to neglect the tired bones and throw themselves into the turmoil, brave, or ?
Arriving downstairs both ordered a pina colada. That's been her couples' cocktail for years. For all those who do not know what this is, here is the list of ingredients:
6 cl white rum
10 cl pineapple juice
4 cl viscous coconut cream (Cream of Coconut)
2 cl whipped cream
3-4 ice cubes
1 pineapple slice, 2 -leaves and 1 cocktail cherry to decorate

But it should not remain with the one, there followed some more danch, because the atmosphere was so heated. And, after all, it was a holiday, you're allowed to do that! Suddenly something happened to them. She suddenly looked so enchantingly exhilarating again. And also His little beer belly didn't seem to bother her that much anymore. Wild snogging at the pool bar followed. Later both decided to go to the beach. There followed - as in the days of her first infatuation - a little outdoor love affair. Not quite as animalistic and wild as before, more demure, but still full of rediscovered passion. The next morning you woke up cuddled up close together and were greeted by the sun and the sound of the sea...

You could think of this story when you spray yourself "Sex and the Sea".

A fragrance that strongly reminds us of the above Pina Colada recipe, although we have to think of rum as a thing of the past. Therefore it does not smell alcoholic, but rather sweet, creamy and somehow it seems to be thick. The coconut is always in the centre and the pineapple is also noticeable. Unfortunately, the feeling remains that it looks very sticky and one thinks that one is creamed. Sun cream feeling for the skin or something like that. Overall, "Sex and the Sea" is more sea than sex. Pina Colada in at the pool bar of a posh hotel. Better one than two. Better be civilized than beating about the bush. Animal traits are therefore only subliminally recognizable. We are also dealing with a fragrance for the lady. It's hard to imagine on a man, he's too sweet. But the hangover lasts for half an eternity. It lasts about 8-10 hours and also radiates well, which is also usual for Bianchi fragrances. Nevertheless, he could not quite convince me, as the above points of criticism prove. I would have liked him wilder, more playful. A summery pendant to "A Lovers Tale" would have been nice. So it remains altogether quite arbitrarily tame.

Maybe the rum was missing in the end? ;)

Sex, beach, summer, piña colada
What a great summer scent i have found here! Probably my favourite one! It goes in the same línea than other fragances like intense tiare by montale, with a Big load of coconut and other tropical vibes (pinneaple in this case) over a sweet basement of oriental Resines and Woods. I have seen some revies talking about the excesive price for a summer coconut fragance, and It is true that here you find like a suncream coconut smell... But this is one of the good and expensive obes! For me are worse all these citric and oceanic fragances which last less than one Breathe and cost even more than this. Sex & the beach is not cheap but i think It worths the money if you like the smell. It lasts for hours with a good sillage. It doenst proyect very far but youbcan feel the creamy aura around you all the time. I feel the scent very natural and, yes, It is a bit like a piña colada smell,but is nice!! I find It unisex and... Very very sexy!!
