Though all the years and the Perfumes i've tried there is a few proper favourites out there. I would say that Ck One is 1 of my favourite ones, and that's what prompted me to try the Summer version of it. OFten i've found that limited edition special ones aren't as good as the original, but you get the original scent with a twist of something different through it.
I bought this out of Boots and got it for free! Well not exactly free. I don't use up my advantage card points up really and I had loads of them. Fair enough it took me years to get all the amount I used for this, but it was worth saving them up for something bigger I would say and not just wasting it on the odd Shower Gel or that.
After lookin online for this I see it's selling in Boots for just under £19 for the 100ml. I think I paid about £29 for it, but that was the other year.
The picture doesn't look like my bottle. It is the same shape but mines is an orangy colour and looks summery and zesty in my view. Weather mines is an old style of bottle and the Dooyoo one is newer or vice versa i'm not sure. The box is orangy as well. It's alright but a bit bright I would say.
So how does this smell? You can smell the light and distinct scent of the original CK scent through this, but this has notes of Green Tea, Cardamon, Pineapple, Jasmine, Violet and Amber. So it was a little bit heavier than I was first expecting. Due to the colouring of the bottle I was expecting this to be all citrus Fruits. So a nice surprise and perhaps a bit nicer than I was first expecting.
This lasts a good lenght of time as well. After spraying a couple of squirts on each point it does smell quite strong but once it dries then it dies down a bit. You can still smell it no problem, but it seems more natural and subtle but with a nice scent to it.
I've still got a bit of this left, as I only use this one now and again. It is nice, but I find that there is other PErfumes that I like more. I still prefer the original but this is a nice alternative and you get the scent with a bit of a twist.
I like to smell good and try many fragrances, I have ck one and ck one summer 2008. The first one is very boring and too light for me but the ck summer is very easy to wear and I think it offers a bit more for me to enjoy.
The bottle for ck one summer 2008 is again very plain as the shape of it has no real curves or texture and looks cheap. The colours on the bottle do make it stand out more than the ck one bottle does, making the summer version look a bit better.
I got this as a gift but I know it was in a sale then. I got a 100ml bottle of this and I have used it more than the ck one. The lid is a frosted silver and has a spray top for easy use. When I use this I only need a small spray at a time.
When I wear this I think of good times and warm days. I think it makes my skin feel alive and the freshness lasts for a short time. I wish it lasted longer on me and this is a fault with the range of ck one eau de toilettes I have.
Ck summer 2008 still has many of the things in it from ck one like bergamot, amber and cardamon but there is more to this than the ck one so I wear it more. It smells fuller and more complete for me.
When I want to wear this I also use the ck deo stick I have which goes well with it. I only spray once onto my neck each side and then it stays for a while on my skin. It does fade quickly over the day and needs topping up.
I have had good comments about this and people say they like how this smells on me. The lightness and citrus freshness is good, but short lived.
I know this was an edition for summer 2008 and I have had mine since just after that. You can till buy this online but it may be more difficult to buy in the shops now. If you ask around in some of the discount fragrance shops as they might have some.
I would recommend this for times when you want a light fresh smell with a hint of surprise to it. It is very light and fades quickly, but you can go spray a bit more on to top up if you want later in the day.
I've always liked the original CK One, which is a unisex fragrance launched way way back in the early 90's. However this fragrance is still popular today and is available in a limited edition summer version which varies slightly from year to year. Of the limited editions I've only had the pleasure of trying the Summer 2008 release.
The bottle is still the typical flask style of the original CK One, it comes with a screw on lid which I suppose is for the men (splash on) or a spray (I assume for women). I always prefer to use the spray as it is more efficient in applying the scent.
The fragrance is still CK One but with a lovely summer twist. I find it very fresh, and slightly fruity, but with a simple woodsy dry down. No matter how grey the day one sniff of this and you will feel transported to a sun drenched exotic location, it really is summer in a bottle.
When I first spray this I can detect light fruity and crisp aromas of citrus, watermelon and cucumber which are just light enough not to be overly feminine, remembering that this is a unisex scent. There is also a very subtle mint smell, which is more of a fleeting scent than one which lasts till dry down. The citrus aromas do continue to the full dry down, albeit very faint.
Dry down is typical CK One, although the citrus does hang around, it is definitely slightly more masculine, but in no way should this put you off, it is still a delicious scent. It has notes of musk, cardamon and blonde wood and has great staying power. It typically lasts for around 4 hours on my skin.
To get a man's perspective on this, I asked my partner would he wear it considering it is unisex, and he's admitted that he often does have a sneaky spray when I'm not around. I may just have to buy him his own bottle.
When I spray this it makes me feel quite invigorated and puts a little spring in my step. This is a fragrance sutiable for everyday wear, it gives a 'just out the shower' feel every time I smell this. I don't consider this to be an evening fragrance, it is more suitable for day time due to the fresh fruity notes. I prefer my evening scents to be more sensual and exotic.
Would I recommend this fragrance? In a word yes, espcially for the summer months when the sun seems to be evading everyone, this is definitely summer in a bottle!
I like this scent so much that I'm on the look out for other summer versions of CK One.
This was bought as a gift so I'm unsure of the price paid, however it can be bought on line from various retailers at around £25.
CK One summer 2008 is the 3rd edition of the summer range CK brings out every year. However, I was able to purchase this last year at the duty free on my trip to the Canary Islands. It was just what the doctor ordered! I was looking for something that smelt summery and not to overpowering for my holiday away and this looked like just the thing. It's contents were blue which I associate with being a cool, calm like kind of colour.
It's in a 100ml glass bottled toilette spray. Mine came in a box so I couldn't smell it before I actually bought it but I can't remember the box it came in as it was a year ago. You do not get a top to go on the spray dispenser but you can feel assured the contents won't leak out if you feel like popping it in your bag. The bottle is clear so you can see the contents of the perfume is a gorgeous bright blue colour.
It is said to feature notes of notes of watermelon, watermint, hedione, cucumber, cardamom, moss, blonde woods and musk.
The scent is very exotic and unique. The scent will litterally blow your mind, it's hard to describe as everyone will smell something different. It's very fruity and citrusy and the smell of watermelon and cucumber are very apparent but not in a gross way, in a subtle refreshing way. The scent is sure to remind you of hot summer days abroad on the beach with sand and palm trees, in a completely different atmosphere from times in dull britain. It doesn't smell too girly, parts of it are quite masculine so it's aimed at men too as it's a unisex fragrance. Its very cool, light and refreshing to wear.
The scent is not really strong and overpowering but is very noticable still and makes it's statement.. the exotic scents are enough to send your brain into a craze and it's hard not to fall in love with. If I'm wearing this around friends I always get asked what I'm wearing but I have been asked why I'm wearing a mans perfume as to me it's quite musky and more masculin. I find I only need a few sprays of this and the scent lasts around 3 hours which is pretty good.
Overall I adore this scent, the notes in it are just crazy and it's such a shame it's limited addition and not a permenant fixture. In my opinion it's not suitable for winter as it's far too exotic and fruity for that, it's obvious it was made for summer and summer only. It's quite long lasting at approximately 3 hours and I don't mind applying as I only use it for summer. The scent is only suitable if you're looking for something new, fresh and experimental as it's not really your everyday wear and very different from other subtle perfumes. It's just an all round gorgeous spray for men and women.
Although it's limited addition you can purchase from fragrances shops online such as fragrance direct. The price range could be anything from £20-30.
I bought this perfume in Cyprus un July last year!!! I am a fanatic about perfume, basically I spray as if it goes out of fashion, it has a lovely fresh scent good for everyday. and because the size of the bottle it lasts forever still got half a bottle left.
I was looking for something different when I came across this fragrance.It`s unique and it can be used for both genders-male and female.This is great because it might become a couple`s favorite fragrance.It smells different and I has been asked about one hundred times what this perfume is since I bought it.It`s refereshing to wear something different for me and if there are people who feel like they need attention or a change-this fragrance is a must - owned - thing.The smell is lovely and you can buy it for your beloved once for St. Valenstine`s day.The grat thing about this perfume is also that it lasts really long and it smells the same when you go under the shower 15 minutes,3 hours or even more after using it once . It`s not very expensive and this makes it one of the best St. Valentine`s day presents or a present for any occasion,for anyone.
I bought this product because I was looking for a new smell. I was actually smelling different type of fragrances available in the store and when I came across this heavenly stuff, I just felt this smell's amazing! I bought it and started using it the next day in the office. It's very unique and my colleagues around me asked what perfume was I wearing so that they can buy it for their loved one. The great part about this perfume is that it is not a very expensive stuff and it lasts for a long time. It smells great and easy to put on. For me, it is a very good product.
This scent is lovely, one that can be used for both male and females which is great. I think this fragrance is refreshing and smells lovely. The price for this is also very reasonable for the amount you get and last for ages. Even the colour os this fragranze just shouts out summer time, it is a feel good spray and looks like a lovely carribean sea...very dreamy. I went of Calvin Klein for a while but think they have had a lot of brilliant fragrances recently and this is definately one of my favourites at the moment. It would also make a good present for anyone and everyone, if you don't know what to buy I think it is a smell that everyone will love and make them think of the summer. The downside is the bottle shape is a bit boring I would love them just to think of something different and a bit more eye catching to compliment to the colour
This is my favourite scent and it is great because it lasts for a summer and autumn and then as winter fades you can look forward to the next launch of the One Summer perfume as for the last 3 years it has been released in March time.
If you imagine lying on a tropical island with sand like icing sugar between your toes then this is the smell you can imagine. I also think it reminds me of childhood days making daisy chains in fields of meadow flowers in Gloucester with my gran. It is a light fragrance so you can spray it liberally and it lasts all day. Light and fresh it gives that just showered smell.
It is unisex and my husband likes it although he prefers other more masculine Calvin Klein perfumes.
The bottle is beautiful. I have been collecting them for the last three years and each year the packaging makes the item look so appealing. Last year it was a sunset, this year a blue ocean coloured bottle. The addition of a screw top makes travelling easy, and the great thing is it is 100mls so just fits into the allowance for going through security at airports in your hand luggage.
The perfumes from the previous 2 years can also be bought online and are often cheaper so if you want to try them it is a good idea, though they are slightly different from year to year.
I have found the fragrance to be a personal favourite so I hope you will try it.
CK Summer 2008 is the third edition of the Summer Unisex Fragrances from Calvin Klein. It was launched in MArch 2008, and like its predecessors, has been a hit.
It is said to contain smells of mint, cucumber, watermelon, cardamom, hedione-extract of jasmine blossom, musk and woodsy accords.
In my opinion, the smell is cool and fresh, but not as fresh as the 2007 edition. Although this is unisex, I would recommend this to guys as I think it is more manly than unisex.
It has a fantastic staying power as the scent can last for hours on the skin.
It comes in an electric blue glass bottle with a screw top and attachable spray. The screw top makes it convienient to transport when going on a journey as it stops leaks and spillages.
Pricing ranges from 20 - 30 pounds.
This is a limited edition fragrance as Ck Summer changes each year. So I would reccomend getting this before it runs out.
I'm looking forward to what CK Summer 2009 will be.
cK One is a naturally clean, pure, and contemporary fragrance with a refreshingly new point of view / This light, relaxed scent is meant to be used lavishly / cK One Eau de Toilette can literally be splashed all over the body / It is an intimate fragrance, one that you need to be near to smell /
