Calvin Klein Contradiction
Almost every well-respected designer has his or her own fragrance and Calvin Klein is certainly not an exception! Calvin Klein was founded in 1968 by Calvin Klein himself and is located at New York. Calvin Klein Contradiction is one of their more known fragrances and was introduced in 1998.
I do have to say I like the Calvin Klein fragrances, but I'm a little bit doubtful about their clothes. They always look nice, but not really my kind of clothes I would wear. The first Calvin Klein fragrances I got as a gift and since them I'm quiet liking them.
The bottle is these days almost as important as the scent it self. When I go in to a shop I notice the pretty looking bottles first and try them on, then the boring looking ones. I know it's a little bit weird, but it shouldn't matter how a fragrances looks like, but still you see yourself walking to the pretty shiny bottles. I like the bottle of this fragrance and it's quiet unique looking, with it large cap on top of it.
Calvin Klein Contradiction has a more oriental scent and it's a nice fresh, lemon kind of smell to it. When you spray this on yourself you will notice first a quiet strong alcohol scent, but it changes quickly to a more fresh and nicer smell. It does give me a good feeling knowing it smell nice. The fragrance contains coriander, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper, which make it really nice.
It's a typical man fragrance with it fresh and little bit strong lemon scent. It surely doesn't smell like flowers or anything. You do have a woman's version, but I never tried that one. You don't really need to lot when you spray this on, because it's quiet strong and I would say the bottle can last you almost half an year.
As a keen wearer of designer fragrances I have owned a few of the most popular fragrances and one of them being Crave by Calvin Klein. One of the more well known fragrances from Calvin Klein is Contradiction. This fragrance was released in 1998 and is one of the most cherised fragrances from this world famous brand that is Calvin Klein.
As you will be well aware Calvin Klein fragrances are amongst the most popular fragrances around with the likes of Eternity, Crave, CK One and Obsession acheiving superb sales over the years and many fragrances doing so well as soon as they come out like CKIn2U.
A bottle's look is almost as important as the actual fragrance itself. The consumer wants something that will also look good on their bedside cabinet or bathroom shelf. Contradiction is housed in a unique bottle style which has a large cap that only leaves the bottom of the glass bottle visible.
This fragrance is just one of a long line of Calvin Klein fragrances that are housed in attractive unique looking bottles. The look of a fragrance is also key when you are looking at the shelf and see various fragrances. Contradiction is a very eye catching bottle.
As you would expect from Calvin Klein this is a very fresh and clean smell, With sultry hints of orange and dark citrus notes and lighter, crisp marine notes combined with notes of sage and lavender, with cardamom, coriander, nutmeg and pepper this is a very popular fragrance especially with men in their twenties. It is great for everyday use and night use.
This fragrance is available in three sizes. 30ml, 50ml and 100ml and is priced between around £18-£45 depending on where you shop. Look around the internet and you will be able to get some great deals on this fragrance and it's accompanying shower gel, aftershave and deodorant which can all be found alongside the bottles of Contradiction eau de toilette.
I loved wearing Calvin Klein's Crave fragrance and Contradiction is also a very nice fragrance and is probably the most similar Calvin Klein fragrance to Crave which itself is very orangey and fresh but Contradiction has a slightly sharper fragrance. It is a superb smelling fragrance that is versatile and long lasting.
I would recommend this fragrance predominantly at men in their twenties but it also suits men in their thirties and fourties. A great fragrance that has been around for ten years and shows no signs of dissapearing from the shelves just yet.
Calvin Klein Contradiction for Men is a crisp, tangy blend of lime, tangerine, sage and lavender, colored with cardamom, coriander, nutmeg and pepper. Contrasting warmth follows as ebony, vetiver and sandalwood take over. Finally, musk and amber leave the skin with a delicately sensual trace.
