This summer's exotic fragrance cocktails
Sea salt, that dances refreshingly on the air on a long day at the beach under a glistening sun, while the invigorating effect of a freshly shredded coconut improves the wearer's mood from the inside out. The beneficial effects and healing powers of superfoods have been cited for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. The "natural gold" can enhance our mental and physical well-being and we can benefit from its positive effects both as an element of our diet, and also in cosmetics and fragrances. Thanks to their unique capacity to remind us of memorable moments, indulgent fragrances entice our body and soul into a moment of escapism. This year, the 4711 Acqua Colonia Limited Edition 2022 is all about real power and feel-good moments with an extra helping of summer vibes. Pomelo & Sea Salt and Coconut Water & Yuzu incorporate a surprising and stimulating combination of powerful superfoods and soothing ingredients, inspired by nature and with a novel freshness. The new limited edition will be available in stores from the end of May 2022.
Exclusive Limited Edition
The 4711 Acqua Colonia portfolio promises to invigorate, energise, stimulate and soothe the senses. Every year, the Acqua Colonia Limited Edition is created by interpreting current summer trends for the olfactory world, composing in two experimental fragrance creations. The two new limited-edition fragrances are sophisticated cologne creations that have a positive impact on our mood. This year, they arouse our senses – and awaken our memories – with their exotic nuances. They allow us to be transported back to the most beautiful holidays; every spray of seawater alive with memories of summer days, with unforgettable holiday moments coming alive again in our mind's eye. Two special, contrasting and surprising main ingredients, which are also combined in the limited edition, develop their individual effects on body and soul. Pomelo & Sea Salt links its wearers with the natural, soothing elements of the sea salt, while pomelo immediately stimulates the spirit and provides a citrusy burst of freshness. Coconut Water & Yuzu starts by reminding you of the refreshing taste of a freshly shredded coconut, and thanks to its Yuzu notes, then pampers you with a languorous, summer-holiday feeling. Two unique Colognes tantalise the senses with their experimental freshness and beckon us towards sunnier days with an indulgent summer sensation.
Pomelo & Sea Salt – stimulating
The 4711 Acqua Colonia Creation Pomelo & Sea Salt is richly contrasting and surprising. The pomelo's powerful aromatic freshness is accompanied by sea-salt notes, giving the soothing effect of a delicate ocean breeze. This effervescent and diverse blend has an invigorating effect on its wearers and immediately provides a real energy boost. A fragrance as stimulating and fulfilling as a long, sunny beach day with a refreshing sea breeze and fruity vitamin-C-packed cocktail.
- Pomelo – citrusy
The pomelo, which first appeared in Israel in 1970, was the product of crossing a grapefruit with a shaddock. The largest of the citrus fruits, it is very healthy due to its very high vitamin-C content which fortifies the immune system and has a positive effect on the entire body. Today, this tropical fruit is primarily cultivated in Israel, South Africa, Southeast Asia and China. It also has the advantage of a substantially milder taste than its bittersweet relatives.
- Sea Salt – mineral
Unlike cooking or table salt, sea salt is only obtained by long-term drying in the sun. This is why this type of salt retains valuable ingredients that can have a variety of positive effects on the body, mind and soul. With its high content of various minerals such as iodine and magnesium, it helps strengthen the immune system and has a curative and relaxing effect. Thus, sea salt is considered to be one of the most natural therapies and is now an indispensable part of skin and body care.
"This fragrance starts out with a large dose of the optimism evoked by sun-kissed pomelo notes, that instantly give the fragrance its summery zestiness. The fragrance ultimately draws its intense effect and surprising versatility from the balancing effect of sea salt minerals."

Coconut Water & Yuzu – soothing
Fruity, exotic, with an almost milky sweetness – the 4711 Acqua Colonia Creation Coconut Water & Yuzu immediately envelops its wearers in a cloud of mellow, fresh coconut aromas. Along with a splash of Yuzu notes bursting with energy, this creation immediately imparts a soothing, sensual feeling, ensuring well-being that lasts all day long. A fragrance as delightful as enjoying creamy coconut with that certain extra crispness that comes while watching an unforgettable sunset, ensconced in a hammock between two beachfront palm trees.
- Coconut water – fruity
Coconut water is a trendy drink that has long since made it into many supermarkets. It is not a water at all, but the fruit juice of the freshly shredded coconut. It should not be confused with coconut milk, which is extracted from the flesh of the coconut. This popular product brings a splash of holiday feeling to our everyday lives, and has multiple health benefits. Coconut water is full of nutritional and mineral substances and is also low in calories, making it ideal as a sports drink.
- Yuzu – citrusy
It looks extremely similar to its relative, the lemon, but the yuzu is an exotic fruit that has been grown in China for thousands of years. It was created by mixing or crossing a lemon with a mandarin. Still not very well-known in Europe, it enjoys great popularity in Asia. Yuzu oil is not only used in fine cuisine but also considered a wonderfully refreshing aromatic oil with a mood-brightening effect. It is perfect for reducing stress and fortifying the immune system.
"At the outset, the fruity, fresh coconut notes of this fragrance immediately remind its wearer of the taste of a freshly shredded coconut and the welcome cooling effect of coconut water. This summery holiday feeling is combined with spirited Yuzu notes, which enhance the soothing character of this combination."

4711 Acqua Colonia Pomelo & Sea Salt and Coconut Water & Yuzu also exude a summery natural feeling. The soft beige box depicts the powerful images of the hero ingredients and superfoods – pomelo and coconut – in a particularly opulent way. The boxes are sourced from responsible forestry, and are generally sourced from Germany on short delivery routes. The limited edition mark at the top of the packaging shows the exclusivity of these fragrances. This year's summer fragrances from 4711 Acqua Colonia also feature the vegan symbol* on the back of the box. Paired with the modern retro design from 4711 Acqua Colonia, the lush orange of Pomelo & Sea Salt and the soothing blue of Coconut Water & Yuzu exude elegance and cheerfulness. The powerful, nature-inspired design, in the iconic Molanus flacon with its relief finish, give any bathroom an elegant look.
