I’ve always been fascinated by the sea. Mystery and tranquility are tucked away like precious gems in a music box. The ocean remains one of the few places I feel undeniably “myself”. From the moment my bare feet wriggle in the sand, I’m hooked. I’ve always called it “lyrical meditation” – an imperceptible harmony of water, land and air.
Recently, Davidoff Cool Water challenged me to interpret what #LoveTheOcean means to me. Personally, the ocean has always been a place I call home – whether on a boat, seaside condo or under a beach umbrella. It’s always served as a destination for me; it’s the fantastic prize at the end of a journey. I chose to interpret #LoveTheOcean as a weekend getaway. My stylish essentials include nautical favorites and of course Davidoff Cool Water’s cool new cologne, Night Dive.
In its third consecutive year, Davidoff Cool Water has partnered with the National Geographic Society’s Pristine Seas program, which aims to explore and protect the ocean. Through the support of this partnership, the National Geographic Society has been able to explore and develop more extensive plans providing protection to the fragile balance that governs Earth’s oceans.
Under her alias Isak Denisen, Danish author Karen Blixen wrote, “The cure for anything is salt water; tears, sweat, or the sea.” I’ve always focused my charitable efforts on the environment and my hope is that future generations enjoy the same beautiful relationship I have with the ocean. I encourage you to support this wonderful partnership by either purchasing Davidoff Cool Water or posting an image tagged with #LoveTheOcean on Instagram. Each option helps protect a piece of the ocean (100,000 square feet and 50,000 square feet, respectively).
