Calvin Klein perfumes are just as curious in their scent, as mystical as they are. You could just almost react in any ways, and you would not be mistaken for being out-of-this-world. Calvin Klein perfume just does that to you, sweeping you off your feet. I did the cardinal sin of challenging the ‘powers’ of Calvin Klein perfume, and I was made to pay by – Buying three bottles of Obsession perfume.
Some time has to be spent on finding out more on Calvin Klein, the brains behind this line of perfumes that has taken the world by storm for the last couple of decades or so.
About Calvin Klein
$10,000 – That’s all Calvin Klein required to set up the brand Calvin Klein in 1968. Obviously, those days that kind of money was considered huge by all stretch of imagination. What people do not know that the first client of Calvin Klein, Inc wanted to buy coats from Calvin Klein! And in fact, for some more years to come, this was Calvin Klein’s rise to stardom – With coats for men and women.
It was not until 1981 that the world could see a CK fragrance in the market. The CK revolution indeed took off from here, and about 27 years down the line, we are looking at a line of about 30-35 brands, all captivating and enchanting in their own sense. Some popular CK perfumes launched in subsequent years were Eternity (For men and women), Contradiction (For men and women), Obsession and Euphoria.
In fact, the Euphoria perfume, the Eternity perfume and the obsession perfume have been the pillars of Calvin Klein’s popularity in recent years. It will be worthwhile for us to know a bit more about them in detail.
Let your mood sway to the scent of exotic fruits and lush floral – at least that seemed to be the thought behind the Euphoria series of CK perfumes. The Euphoria perfume had been launched in 2005, for use by women. The Euphoria perfume was made of Lotus Blossom, Champaca flower, Liquid Amber, Black Violet and Mahogany wood – All special fragrances in their own right.
The starting line of Euphoria for women had a 1.7 oz EDP spray. For long after the perfume was released, the bottle of the perfume took people by awe. Never before did any perfume have a stylish bottle as the Euphoria leading a lot of people to believe that this indeed was once-in-a-lifetime collection for most of them.
The Euphoria perfume had one very recent addition to its collection. CK introduced the stylish looking and equally stylish smelling, 3.4 oz Eau de parfum in 2007. With Swarovski crystals embossing the bottle, and floral etches adoring the covering, the bottle, if not the scent was something to have in your bedrooms. Of course, you could wear this Eau de Parfum almost anytime of the year.
Launched in the springs of 1985, the Obsession perfume of CK was one of its kinds then. Trust it had so many things that none of the other perfumes then had in them, which is why a lot of people absolutely adored the Obsession perfume series. Trust you would not have been faulted for getting obsessed with something after wearing this perfume – Such was the sensuality of the perfume.
Mandarin, Bergamot and peach provide the sensual feel to this perfume. Touches of lemon, jasmine and oakmoss provide the complimentary style, overall packaging it into one perfume that was a must-have then. I must say that 20 years after its release, this perfume is still something people wish to have in their rooms.
Available in sizes of 3.40 and 1.70 oz, you could wear Obsession perfume the best during evenings. A combination with either body talc or a deodorant, is the final touch to using the Obsession perfume – Dare I say, something that would get your near ones closer and more obsessed with you!
Ask any CK fan on the CK perfume that he would ever remember for a long, long time, and you would get the reply “Eternity Perfume”! I am not sure why CK named this perfume series Eternity, but at least after wearing it myself I could tell you – Possibly, the name is inspired by the long lasting memory of the scent on our minds.
As a contrast, I found out later that Eternity symbolizes happiness, sensuality, and love. Well, you could gift a bottle of Eternity to your spouse on marriage day, and trust she would cherish this for time immemorial. The main elements of the Eternity perfume were light fruit notes, sandalwood, demure musk, and a thorough array of flowers.
These elements were mixed with sage, lily, apricot and freesia grass to form a scent that would just keep you asking for more. This mixture was good enough to provide a power packed, long lasting scent when you wear the Eternity Perfume.
CK 1 or CK One
CK One or CK1 as is popularly known by a lot of people, is one of those perfumes that you could lavishly use on your body. Even if the bottle gets done with, you would not mind getting a new one. Ever since its release CK One has been making waves on it being one of the most refreshingly relaxing perfumes. It is just due to this that makes CK 1 a top choice for casual use by people.
That’s correct – You could wear CK 1 much the same way you would have worn talc on your body! Mandarin, Ginger, Amberwood, Musk and Patchouli make up this fun-looking and casual use perfume. Packed in 1.70 oz bottles and weighing 0.30 lbs, you are sure to enjoy every pound of CK 1 that comes through the nozzle.
