Coffee To wake up, enjoy and... possibly do a bigger business! :D
Coffee... yes... Coffee is probably one of mankind's greatest luxury foods. Hardly anyone can do without him any more. If you are too dependent on coffee, some even call this drink a drug! But mostly coffee is not about just waking up, nor is it drunk to be able to quickly do his bigger business in the bathroom in the morning, although some people drink coffee for that very reason. Like a friend on vacation who used to brew coffee every morning from cheap hotel coffee powder, especially in Thailand, where there wasn't a coffee shop in every corner.

I'm like, "Ah, you making coffee?"
She said, "Yeah, I gotta take a shit!"
I: "... ah yes... you could have said that like a lady! :D"
She said, "Uh, I gotta take a real shit?"
I'm like, "sigh... take a shit, man!" :DD

Hmm... well, that's nice vacation memories, isn't it? Hey hey.
Be that as it may, my point was that coffee is mostly drunk simply because of its great taste, just for enjoyment. Didn't I? I've got it that way. I mean, after a while it's like you're getting used to coffee anyway, so you're not wide awake with a normal cup, right? And then you hardly get really strong coffee down :D What do you do then in this case? Right, one could reach for tea, whose active ingredients unfold more slowly, but keep you awake longer. Stupid only if you are also a notorious tea-drinker and the tea hardly shows its effect here either...

But anyway, I've got the ultimate pick-me-up anyway! I'll tell you more about it right away, but first of all I'll describe the scent for a scent with a delicious coffee taste,... um... coffee scent, I meant of course :D

The fragrance:
The scent begins sweet and soft, the sweetness reminds a little of tonka beans. The great coffee scent comes over quickly. Of course the coffee smells a little different here than if you put your nose in a bag of coffee or if you smelled freshly made coffee, because the coffee smells together with a powdery sweetness (and therefore "smells more perfumed"), but nevertheless you recognize that it is coffee, and everyone who likes this scent will like it here as well. Anyway, I like this scent :)
Gradually you can smell the vetiver. It doesn't smell too earthy or grassy yet, but this fragrance is still recognizable. I myself hope that the vetiver will not become even stronger, but we will see. I have nothing against vetiver, but only find it suitable in a few scents. And to a sweetly soft coffee smell I would find it rather inappropriate... but well, as I said, you'll see how it becomes later.
The fragrance remains soft and sweet and powdery for as long as you like. And of course it still smells of great coffee.
And somehow it stays that way. Even after a few hours the Vetiver fortunately remains weak, so that it doesn't get annoying in the end. The sweetish scent becomes a little stronger and smells like a mix of the tonka bean and vanilla mentioned with a hint of slightly tart coffee. Yes, I like the scent very much!

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite good for a 4711 Colonia, but goes down after a few hours. But the shelf life is really good, because the scent lasted more than ten hours.

The bottle:
The bottle has the shape of the typical 4711 Molanus bottles, but this one is cylindrical and has patterned glass, which makes it look like antique or old-fashioned bottles. It looks nice, even if the label isn't so special.

Hmmm... you know, the scent reminded me a little of Valentino Uomo (EDT) at the beginning, who also has a coffee scent, which is even softer than the 4711 here. The 4711 also becomes softer and softer, but it takes a tick longer to do so, as the coffee smells like coffee a little longer before it blends too much with the soft and sweet notes. In any case, Coffee Bean & Vetyver is a very simple, but very nice coffee scent for cool days, which you could occasionally spray on during the day, at work and so on, because it won't bother anyone (on the contrary, as I said it smells good, but most people won't notice it from a long distance anyway because of the quickly decreasing sillage). Too weak to go out, but otherwise quite nice, especially at the low price. Yes, if you like coffee in scented form, you should sniff in here!

So, and now quickly to my ultimate wake-up call, of which I spoke earlier in the introduction and which shows its effect especially in the cold winter: Every morning at 5 o'clock I have to get up one way or the other, that's how it is with me, no matter if during the week or at the weekend. What do you mean? Because every morning at 5 a.m. (but sometimes also at 6 p.m.) in the morning a certain furry guy thinks that he has wandered around enough in the night and it is time to return to the apartment. And in winter it's particularly bad, especially since he often waits at least two more three minutes in front of the window, while the freezing winter transforms the entire apartment into an ice sculpture in this short time. Yes, it ALWAYS wakes you up :DD
