There was a huge amount of fuss earlier this year when Calvin Klein released a new, genderless fragrance, CK2. It's not their first unisex fragrance but it is my favourite one so far! Everything about it is so clean and classy!
Calvin Klein CK2 ($99.00 for 100ml)
The first thing you notice about this fragrance is the design of the bottle. It's clear, minimalist and designed to sit upside down in the lid. It's spicy enough to be masculine but fresh enough to be feminine and it's quickly become a favourite of mine.
According to Fragrantica, CK2 has top notes of "mandarin, wasabi and violet" with base notes of "sandalwood and incense". If you've been reading my blog for long, you'll know I'm fairly dismal at fragrance reviews. However, I can definitely detect the wasabi spice and the fresh citrus notes. CK2 lasts quite a long time, on me at least, and is versatile enough to be a day or a night perfume.
Most of the ladies I know love this fragrance but most of the guys I've asked still think it's a little "girly". I personally don't think so but I guess fragrance is a very personal thing and each to their own!
Have you tried the new CK2 fragrance yet?
