Calvin Klein bring out on of these fragrances every summer and the only thing that changes about them as far as I can tell is the bottles. This year the bottle is green - still the same size, still the same shape, but a different colour. I am pretty sure that the scent inside is the same too.
I like Summer fragrances but have only owned a couple of them and one of those is CK One Summer 2007 edition which I found with a gift set, I don't remember exactly how much I bought it for but It was under £20 and the bottle was a 100ml size. I had been looking for a nice Summery fragrance to wear during the Summer obviously and had heard good things about the CK One Summer range so gave it a spray in my local Boots and then decided to pick one up. I believe I had owned a couple of fragrances by Calvin Klein before so I was a fan of the brand so knew what to expect of this fragrance. There is a new CK One Summer fragrance every year but this is still available and of course you will be able to find some great deals on as stores will want to showcase the older fragrances and this is a fairly popular one which will attract more due to it's well established CK One name.
Like you would expect from the name, this fragrance is ideal for the Summer thanks to it's fruity fresh scent. For keen perfumers the fragrance was designed by Harry Fremont who was also responsible for four other Calvin Klein fragrances including three CK One varieties. I must say that CK One Summer is a unisex fragrance just like CK One so it's suitable for Men and Women and is popular with both sexes. So with that bit over lets talk about the fragrance and what it is like. Well we start with the fruity notes which instantly attract your nose and you notice a slight minty tone thanks to watre mint. The Top Notes last for about three hours give or take before blending into the middle notes which give the fragrance a stronger more sharp feel which lasts for another two to three hours before the Base Notes which give a nice contrast between subtle Vanilla and a sharp woody tone. The base notes tend to last around two hours before the scent fades.
Top notes are orange, mandarin orange, grapefruit, watermelon and watre mint;
Middle notes are ginger, orange blossom and marigold;
Base notes are vanilla, orris root, guaiac wood and vetiver.
This is an excellent fragrance which suits a lovely warm Summer's day just as much as a mugggy night out. There are some lovely notes in the fragrance, In particular I really like the Watermelon and Vanilla notes which open and close the fragrance. I would recommend the fragrance for younger men and women and It will attract questions about what fragrance it is you are wearing from people admiring the scent. As we've had some excellent weather recently it has started getting people ready and thinking about Summer. Well if you are looking for a summer fragrance then you could go much worse than to get a bottle of this fragrance. You can find it for under or around £20 and it's scent is strong enough to make the bottle last a little longer. This is an excellent fragrance that I might just buy again for this Summer. Finally although it is aimed as a Summer fragrance it is fairly suitable for all year round use.
I bought this perfume back in 2007 when I was looking for a new summer fragrance. Because of the time of year I wanted something light and fresh, a bit fruity, but not over powering. I wanted to be able to wear it for a night out or during the day.
I bought it in Boots for about £20 which I think is pretty good considering the bottle was 100ml! The bottle is green, orange and red and pretty simple but I liked how it looked. It reminded me of summer and seeing as I was looking for a summer perfume it was a hit.
I really like this fragrance ans it suited exactly what I was looking for. I have read some reviews saying it's for men which I wasn't aware of and I don't think it smells like it's for men! I have been complimented many times on this perfume by my female friends so I really don't think, even if it is for men, that it's an issue.
As far as I am aware you can't really get it any more as it was a special edition summer fragrance which is a shame because I would definitely buy it again.
I should imaging that this is a nice perfume for a girly girl who wants something floral for the summer. Not to my taste to be honest. I thought it was a bit run of the mill, much like the other flowery scents that are kicking around at the moment.
Having said that, if you want a subtle background scent that doesnt get you noticed at all then this is it.
The bottle is lovely, a gorgeous colour, a nice weight and nice brushed glass. Looks very classy standing on a shelf somewhere.
It's a reasonable price for the amount that you get and if i had have liked the scent i would have been pleased to pay the asking price since i think it is reasonable.
A nice scent for a day time in the park in summer perhaps but frankly lacking a little personality, it won't say anything about you.
I bought this for my 18year old brother who lives in a very sunny, hot country so I thought this would a very cool, beachy accessory. I was wrong. My brother was not much impressed- I think the bottle was not cool enough for him and the fragrance was not 'manly' enough. Oh well! On the plus side, on a recent visit to him I noticed he is still using it from time to time but only because he had run out of Hugo Boss!
CK One Summer is a good fragrance for everyday wear. It is not one of my favourites simply because I do not find it to be very original and in addition, it reminds me a lot of the original CK One.
I bought this fragrance from duty free at the airport whilst I was waiting to board my flight. I often pick up perfume at the aiport due the discount available and the fact that I enjoy wearing fragrances all year round.
I paid 22.98 for a 100 mL bottle; I was pleased with the cost. I selected it after spraying it on a piece of litmus paper and on my wrist and let the smell settle for around 10 min before deciding I would buy it. It has lots of citrus hints, which give it that summery feel, but combines it also with rather pleasant hints of musk, making the fragrance not only fresh and summery, but also rather sexy and therefore it is one of those perfumes that you can wear all day - in the morning and afternoon at work for example and during the evening if heading off to a party.
Whilst I like this scent to a certain extent, I probably wouldn't buy it again, or I would but only for ocassional wear.
I had first smelled CK One Summer used by my office mate, it smells so fresh. It has a scents of blend of citrus fruits and sexy musk makes this a "get close to me" fragrance. It's long-lasting, refreshing and affordable. Can be used as unisex. Worth the money in my opinion, but it is strictly a summer scent as the name suggests. Smells like a kind of pure citrus. I don't know why but the orange/green/yellow blended bottle is what the fragrance smells like and great thing about this is it's great for travelling. You can stick it in your purse, car and suitcase. You can leave it as gifts, tips, whatever and not feel like you've broken the bank. There is a scent for every mood. If you buy the gift sets you'll be amazed at how many perfumes, creams and showers gel you can fit in your make-up bag for travel.
This is by far my most favourite fragrance.
This is the second CK Summer Fragrance. Each year (since 2006) around April/ May time, CK bring out their new Summer fragrance. It is Unisex but I would class it as a male fragrance, that may be because I'm being slightly bias as I'm a guy, but the smell to me is more mane tha female.
I got the first one Summer Fragrance back in 2006 and was excited for the arrival of the 2007 Summer Fragrance.
It comes in a yellow/ orange/ red bottle and smells extremely fresh - and manly. The bottle also comes complete with a spray attachment and screw cap so that you can put the cap back on when putting it in a bag, to avoid leaks.
It's an ideal fragrance to wear both day and night and the smell continues to last a long time after application.
I was pleasantly surprised with the perfume that I got it on the plane, a few years before I had run out of CK One Summer and it turned out they were a special edition and had released another different colour bottle again for each year and I had finally managed to get hold of the latest version and loved this one too, it was slightly different to the previous version but still smelt wonderful.
CK One Summer is by Calvin Klein and it comes in an Eau de Toilette, it is a unisex perfume and is obviously a limited edition that they bring out every year, I have fortunately got 2 bottles on the plane for a great value so hopefully this will see me through till next year and the new release.
CK One SUMMER is a contemporary fragrance which is light and not over powering with its fruity fragrance with a hint of musk.
I got this perfume for £20 a bottle and I think that it is great value for many, I have many perfumes but some are quite expensive so I try not to use them for work and save them for special occasions so CK One summer is ideal. A lovely fragrance I suggest you try one soon before you miss out on the latest version and have to wait till 2009 as they run out fast unless you want to pay over the retail price.
