Calvin Klein CK in2u Her Eau de Parfum Eau de Toilette
Advantages: reasonably priced, gorgeous scent, lasts
Disadvantages: more of an everyday perfume rather than a night/going-out perfume
The first time I smelt this perfume was on a close friend at a house gathering. I have no idea why but it reminded me of my childhood when my family and I went a walk in the country for a picnic. Strange.
But anyway, i loved the perfume and thought it was quite a sensual and relaxed scent, so I purchased the 150ml from ASDA for £28.00 a few months ago.
I haven't seen this perfume in ASDA recently but you can purchase a 50ml CKIN2U from Boots for £21.00.
The CKIN2U bottle is simply desinged with clear glass showing the golden coloured perfume, covered with a white plastic jacket with ckIN2U labelled across it. To spray the perfume, you just squeeze down on the top of the bottle. It's a simple yet cute little design, quite nifty for displaying on your dresser.
This fragrance not only comes in a fairly large bottle for quite a reasonable price, but the fragrance, once squirted, is one that will last all day without need of a top-up, meaning it should last for longer.
The scent itself is hard to place however, it's an absolutely gorgeous scent..
''It opens with a burst of pink grapefruit fizz, tart red currant leaves and zesty sicilian bergamot. The heart produces a surge of mouth watering sugar orchid that mingles with the hypnotic nectar of the white Cactus. The fragrance is lit from within as warm neon Amber floods throughout, while the base notes are flush with the seductive scents of luscious Vanilla soufflé and smoldering red Cedar.''
When heard like that, it doesn't sound like a very appealing scent, but you'd be surprised at how nice a combination is. At first sniff, the scent smells citrus-y, perhaps explained by the pink grapefruit, and you can definetely smell the Vanilla. I think the combined fragrance is just one which is relaxed, quite sensual, sexy and youthful.
Personally, I wear the CKIN2U daily. Although it's a goregous scent, I don't think it's a 'going-out' or 'party' perfume, it's more of an everyday, chilled perfume. But, of course, as with all perfumes , they smell different on one person as they do on another, so my everyday perfume may be someone elses' party perfume.
Not everyone will like this perfume.. My mum and sister aren't huge fans, as isn't my aunt. So it's probably best to test this before purchasing.
Yes! I would definetely recommend this perfume. I think it's youthful, sexy and a relaxed everyday scent that would be suited to anyone of any age. I think that it's a good price for a reasonable amount of perfume and I can vouch it lasting, as I have used mine everyday for the past few months and I still have a good amount left. I would definetely consider buying this perfume again.
If you're looking for a sensual, sexy and youthful perfume, for a reasonable price, then this is the perfume for you!
Summary: love this fragrance, would recommend!
