      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Pleasant fragrance

      Calvin Klein: CK in 2u for Him, Eau de Toilette (try saying that after a couple of drinks) was released in 2007 and is fragrance that contains notes of citron vert or Green Citrus, Gin Fizz, pomelo leaves, frosted tangelo, Cacao bean, Jamaican pepper, shiso leaves, white musk, white cedar and ultra-vetiver. You can get a 100 ml bottle of this for just over £20 and I think this is a good fragrance although one I got as a gift rather than bought for myself. It has lasted a long time and I consider this to be a pleasant fragrance that has worked out to be very good value for money.

      The bottle is very attractive too and the fragrance comes in a range of sizes, 50ml and 100ml and 150ml. The fragrance has a very unique and attractive smell that is very fresh and clean. It has a slight citrus tang and you can notice white musk and white cedar. You don't need to put very much on at all to still feel the effects for most of the day. Like many fragrances you should take care not to overdo this as it is very potent if you do.

      I don't like fragrances that smell too sweet and like this one because it smells clean and subtle. I don't feel like this fragrance announces itself loudly like some other fragrances. The smell is distinctive but settles down and becomes very light and pleasant. I'm not sure if this is my favourite fragrance out of the ones I've tried but I do like it and would consider buying this as part of a gift set if I saw it available at a good price.

      Calvin Klein: CK in 2u for Him is a very fresh, clean and pleasant fragrance that I've got good use out of so far. I would recommend this as a good purchase.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a good all day aroma

      My calvin klein ck in 2 u for men is very good. I got it cheap from boots with a £5 off coupon. It should have been £12.99 but I only paid £7.99. I was very pleased with this as I really like this for every day wear.

      The bottle it comes in is very attractive and has a white plastic top coating with the ck in 2 u detail out out of it. Its a clever bottle that looks interesting.

      You can see the eau de toilette at the bottom of the glass bottle . Mine came in a cardboard box which showed it was a calvin klein product. It looked smart and was well protected.


      When I want to use the ck in 2 u I just give it a light spray on each side of my neck. I only need to press lightly on the spray top to get enough of the ck in 2 u out of the bottle.

      When I wear this I also wear the matching ck in 2 u deo stick. This is good as I do not end up with my deo smelling of one thing and my eau de toilette being another. The two things match each other well.

      I can detect many things from this when I wear it and it has a lime or citrus scent that I smell easily when I first spray it. There are grapefruit leaves in this too and they blend well together with the lime to give a fresh hint.


      After I wear this for a while I can smell coffee beans and this adds a lot to the way the ck in u 2 makes me feel. It adds a deeper tone and goes well with the musk that lasts a long time on me. I feel confident wearing this.

      I like this for daily wear and it is an easy aroma that I get compliments about. You can buy this in many sizes from 50mls to 100ml and 150mls. Mine was the 50mls and should have been £19.99 but cost me so much less.

      I would recommend it as a day time aroma which lasts a long time.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Bland and a bit uninspiring

        This is another scent from the house of Calvin Klein, I purchased a 100ml bottle from Fragrances Direct for 18 pounds and it is similarly priced on amazon and a bit more expensive in boots.

        Appearance: The box it comes in is fairly funky a nice aquamarine blue with quite a nice modern logo, the bottle itself looks incredibly ugly to me, it has a blue glass base and a white plasticy exterior which leaves it open to looking like some horrible modern building.

        The insignia CKK in 2U is inscribed in large ugly letters on the side and it makes you feel this is the kind of product they should give away free as advertising as its ugly and a huge advert for the brand.

        Availability

        I´ve seen this in Sainsburys, Tescos, Boots and Superdrug and it is available online too, you can buy men´s or women´s versions and the price is generally between 15 to 20 pounds. It is available in 50ml or 100ml bottles.

        Smell

        I guess the smell is much more important than the appearance, and to be fair the smell is far superior to the look of the bottle, the smell is woody with a hint of lime citrus, it is a zesty smell which is good first thing in the morning, it doesn´t last though which I find frustrating and fizzles to a kind of washing up liquid smell which isn´t appealing to others or to smell all day.

        I find the smell a bit boring and overall I prefer CKOne and other brands of fragrance, such as the Givenchy scents, this is woody and being honest a bit boring and I have to admit doesn´t suit me particularly well, or as well as other scents, so its not something i´ll be returning to in the future.

        Calvin Klein Ck In2U

        ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Calvin Klein Ck In2U, The Fragrance that makes you happy!
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Calvin Klein Ck In2U is a fragrance by Calvin Klein and is based on just being happy! The bottle does look like a wine bottle, but I don't know if a smell can really make me happy.

        Since every well respected designer has his own fragrance. Calvin Klein certainly couldn't stay behind and has introduced quiet a lot of fragrances for his and hers. Calvin Klein was founded in 1968 by Calvin Klein himself and is located at New York.

        I'm not sure if I actually like the bottle, but it has a funny shape like wine bottle, which I don't really think makes a nice bottle for a fragrance. It does make the bottle stand out. The bottle is practical and easy to use and that's the most important part. The bottle is white and the bottom is transparent. Overall the bottle does have a feminine look and I like a stronger looking bottle.

        I think the Calvin Klein Ck In2U has a nice smell, but it's not overly manly. It has more a modern exotic scent and really sweet, but not too sweet. It's a very distinctive smell with a mix of lime, tangelo leaves, gin fizz, white cedar and white musk. It's not really a strong fresh scent, but more a sweet happy scent. Which is ok and it does smell nice, but it's not my favourite one.

        Calvin Klein Ck In2U is a really nice lovely fresh but sweet smell and maybe perfect for like the summer when you don't want to wear a heavy fragrance. It's not one of my favourites but I wouldn't mind to get this one as a present! I do love the Calvin Klein fragrances and think I have tried them almost all. Suppose I just love to smell nice.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not bad. But often is too much.

        I purchased this fragrance a while ago, as I thought it smelt really nice.It has a nice manly, summery smell - it isn't musty at all. I have noticed since however, that the smell is rather overpowering and can be very strong - even one spray from the bottle is far too much - I prefer to spray a bit on my finger and then dab it on, and even then (to me at least) it still smells very obvious. This is probably a mixed blessing, because whilst it is very strong, it at least means that your 1 bottle will go really far.

        I have since stopped using it, because it is just too overpowering for me, I prefer subtle smells. I agree with the guys on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, who said that you should only be able to smell someone when you are a foot or closer to them. And although I do the actual scent of CK in2u is OK, when you are wearing it you really are inhaling it with every breath, and it feels as if you are walking around in a cloud of it.

        It is an OK fragrance, and it probably smells lovely on others, but you really get sick of it when walking around in a big fug of it. You could do a lot worse than CK in2u, at least it is strong but light and summery, rather than strong and musty and heavy. But there are lot better fragrances out there in my opinion - I would only recommend getting it in a small bottle - rather than the big one I got!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great smell & well packaged

        CKIN2U is made up of fresh tegelo, lime gin fizz, Pomelo leave, rush of pimiento, shiso leaves, cacao, palissander wood, vetiver & a combination of cool musks.

        CKIN2U doesn't sound great on paper, but it gives you a smell that makes you go 'Mmmm!'. If you're a male you won't be able to stop yourself from... well... smelling yourself & if you're a female you won't be able to help yourself to a sneaky smell when he isn't looking, or if he is a partner, you will just want to cuddle up to the warm smell CKIN2U gives off. Another good point is that this scent isn't overpowering & is perfect whatever the occasion, if it be hard at work or out having a good time, the fragrance doesn't smell out of place. The fragrance is bottled up into a very nice looking bottle, it gives a decent spray & it won't leak if you want to take the bottle with you. On top of all that this is very well priced for what it gives you. I highly recommend you get out there & give it a smell, you won't be disappointed.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Very nice aftershave at an even nicer price!

          On a recent trip up north, I found myself in TJ Hughes in Birkenhead and noticed that this shop was sales central, and almost in the doorway stood a table with a job-lot of reduced fragrances, surrounded by the world and his wife, all sniffing, spraying and smelling!

          I had a look, sprayed myself with a couple and decided that all the ones with sprays I did not like and all the ones which were not spray-on, I did like! To be honest, non-spray fragrances are not ideal, I clearly haven't got the technique and when applying them seem to tip half of it on the floor! Behind the table however, was a fragrance counter and I noticed a number of these more high-end aftershaves were on special too.

          I worked my way through a couple but when I came across CK IN 2 U for men, as cheesy as it sounds, I was sold! I paid a derisory £15 for a 100ml bottle, which I thought was superb value, especially for such a great smelling aftershave!

          The bottle itself is nothing out of the ordinary, it just has a bit of a funny bottom, while the packaging is blue and shiny. The scent itself is great, fairly fruity but still a very manly smell. It has a strong odour, that seems very sweet at first but kind of morphs as time progresses to something I can only explain as 'classy.' Whilst some aftershaves smell too much like alcohol or far too sweet, this Calvin Klein number strikes a perfect balance. Additionally, it is long-lasting as I wore it to work yesterday, applying in the morning and I could still smell it on my drive home! Atleast it means I can wear it on a night out without having to give into the 'freshen up man' (toilet attendent)!

          To be honest, while describing a smell is very challenging indeed, you can't go wrong with this aftershave; it's not the best I've ever smelt but considering the price, it's certainly up there!

          Disadvantages

          A good buy if it can actually work.

          When mothers day came up i was certain that this year would be a great one; i'd give her lots of presents, a relaxing day, breakfast in bed and clear out the house from her. So when i saw this product advertised i went down the perfume shop and asked for a tester.
          It did smell very nice; pure and not overpowering with flowers and fruity scents like alot of perfumes do. I loved it so much so decided to ask how much it was. I was very suprised when the lady told me that it was only £11 or so for a small bottle of 30ml. I thought mum would love it- bearing in mind this was the woman version.
          It's appearance was really cool with a twist to the side bottle and the spray top came out. It was calm, neutrel colours which made it look simple and not over done.
          The only part that really disappointed me was the twist bottle broke and it was vertually impossible to get the perfume out. It was already like this before we even used it!
          Great product- not overly great style proceeduer though.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Nice presentation with a matching scent.

          CK in 2 U comes in a stunning packaging: A white glass bottle with a thick bottom and a lid - more useful than other Eau de Toilettes with no lids, as they can sometimes open in bags etc.

          The smell itself is very masculine, yet fresh. Making this eau de toilette suitable for all uses, day time and going out at night time. The scent is strong, so can be smelt without having to really concentrate, but not overpowering, (not a room stinker!)

          It has a few underlying tones of citrus, but it is also woody and when you spray it, it doesn't smell too strong of a kind of alcohol, which some can. The scent also lasts a long time, so reapplication throughout the day is not necessary, which is handy if you have the big bottle, as it is quite bulky and cannot be carried around easily.

          At between £20 - £30 it is very good value for money, even better so for the quality of the scent. I would high recommend it to any man who is looking for an all-rounded scent.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great for the hot summer days

          I was given a large bottle of 100ml quantity of In 2 U for my birthday back in April, and when I opened it, I had not heard of it before, which is a bit of a surprise, as I have used CK1 / CKBe for years, and tend to be up to speed with most aftershaves, also after mentioning it to friends, as they had all heard of it, and some of them had tried it already. I have always been a big fan of the Calvin Klein range of fragrances, and can only assume that CK have not advertised this product very well, in the places I would normally hear of it.

          Having used it regularly for the last 6 weeks, (and almost used it all up!), I can honestly say that I really like it, even more so than CK1 / CKBe. It is in my opinion fairly priced at approx £25 - £30 for a 100 ml bottle, and in my opinion the fragrance is very fresh, full of life, long lasting, and great for the warm summer days. My 100ml bottle comes complete with a push down sprayer, which is certainly a benefit to the older style bottles where you had to pour the fragrance into your hands, then apply to your face, thus leaving your hands smelling strongly all day.

          I consider it to be a fragrance that tends to suit younger men best due to its lively nature, but being no spring chicken myself, the older guys can get away with it too, and it perhaps give them a younger feel about themselves.
          I would definitely recommend giving it a try if like me you had not already done so.

          good average priced fragrance

          CK in 2 u has a very good smell to it. i swore by ck1 for may a year until there new realease CK in 2u came on the shelves. i first bought it for my father a couple of christmas's ago and he absolutley loved it unsual for him as they usually get put on the shelf and i myself get to use them when he forgets about them. Its reasonably priced around the 3o pounds mark. but obviously can be found cheap in the aiports and on the ferries. With calvin klein a big competitor in the fragrance market they need to be on the ball all of the time and they have truly done them selves well with this fragrance... I reccomended this to my cousin who also went and bought a bottle and since the reccomendation CKin2u has spread like wild fire. Again even the guys who spray you in the bars and the clubs love using this spray as it is popular with all

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Definatly one to try the scent is quite brilliant.

          I find that this had a great lasting power, my girlfriend noticed it all night; dont always get a fragrance as good as this. It also has a really fresh scent.

          A good scent for daily use, work, hitting the town etc; a good "all-rounder".

          The female version is good too and does match/compliment the mans fragrance too.
          Great scent. Starts crisp and then mellows to a warm, musky scent.

          CK IN2U for Him by Calvin Klein was introduced in 2007. The people behind this fragrance are Carlos Benaim, Bruno Jovanovic, Loc Dong and Jean-Marc Chaillan.

          Well i hope this has provided some insight, i really like to smell nice and do have a thing for the designer brands such as calvin klein, but sometimes you get your hopes up and get let down but with this there wasn't that problem.

          I would definatly suggest trying it, and if you are a female looking at this review the female version also has a very nice smell thats worth a buy.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Nice, but not nice enough

          I received this as a Christmas gift, packaged as a set with the shower gel. Immediately I took a shine to the box which had a metallic grid over it, Calvin Klein clearly want you to believe that this perfume is so hardcore it needs to be kept behind bars. I was convinced.
          Anyway, next thing to spark my interest was the bottle. Its sleek matt white finish somehow reminded me of an Ipod, and that's not a bad thing. I like that the CK letters are cut out of it. Its modern, its not trying too hard, so thumbs up.
          Now to the scent itself, and here I have a confession to make.. I have an extremely bad sense of smell. This makes me an ideal fragrance reviewer because for me to like something it has to be very distinctive. CKin2U falls over at the first hurdle here, because quite honestly even though I have sprayed it on me a million times I still have no mental image of the smell, I couldn't recall it when I just tried to. Whereas if I try to recall my other perfumes such as Gucci Rush or Ralph Lauren Polo Sport I have a clear 'fragrance image' in my head.
          Saying that, I have just taken a trek to the bathroom to smell it, and it is a nice scent, it just won't knock your socks off. I won't be buying it again after the bottle has run out.

          CK with yet another great aftershave

          Got this as a gift for christmas and it was a very good gift, it has a great fragrance and i use it all the time.

          It has a very cool image as you would expect with CK and a reasonable price (between £20 and £30) as CK are one of the market leaders for mens fragrance, when i buy aftershave i would only really buy CK or Boss and i have to say this is probably the best aftershave i have, it is all i wear when i am heading out at night at the moment.

          The stylish white 50ml bottle is awesome and the white goes well with the black and silver writing, this is probably the best looking aftershave bottle in my collection.

          I recommend this aftershave to any of you guys, just get a test and try the smell and i'm sure you will like it, if you are a girl i would also recommend this product as a great gift for your special one.
