Over the past few years, I have owned several of the Calvin Klein perfumes and have had mixed experiences of them. I originally owned the Eternity Moment body lotion I really loved the scent so when browsing in my local Boots store last October (whilst Christmas shopping), I was happy to spot a 30ml of Eternity Moment EDP at a reduced price. It was in the clearance section and reduced to around £14.00 if I remember correctly. I also picked up a bottle for my Mum in law to put in with his Christmas.
Eternity Moment EDP is quite a light fragrance from the moment I spray it onto my wrists and neck. The scent opens up with a pleasant, fresh fruitiness which is light and airy. I can detect the guava and lychee - a fruity but not overly sweet blend which is simply nice and quite uplifting to ones spirits. The sweetness of the top notes starts to mingle with the floral heart of Eternity Moment soon after applying this perfume.
Whilst I am not crazy for flowery smells, if blended and balanced well, floral notes can be appealing to me personally. With Eternity Moment, the heart is beautifully soft and not overpowering in the slightest. I cannot say that my nose can detect the individual floral notes listed but the scent on my skin is pleasant - light floral notes with a crisp, clean feeling and slightly soapy undertone at times. It is a simple, refreshing scent but one which lacks complexity and depth in my opinion. It is beautifully feminine and delicate.
The dry down of Eternity Moment sits quite close to my skin but is still noticeable for a short while. I love the way the scent develops here even though the combination is far from being unique. The main focus is on a musky sweetness which comes across as being rather creamy and mild. A wave of warm fruitiness flows through the scent but isn't always detectable. Unfortuantely, the scent of Eternity Moment is no more than a whisper on my skin after 4-5 hours. This is most disappointing given that this is an EDP. The body lotion actually offers a longer lasting scent so both combined together provides my skin with a longer lasting scent.
Eternity Moment EDP is a rather simple scent and is likely to appeal to women of any age in my opinion. It is an ideal scent for wearing as a day to day perfume and its lightness makes it ideal for wearing during warmer months as it won't come across as being heavy or cloying. My Mum in law (who is in her mid 50s) likes it and it suits her as an everyday scent. I personally favour wearing this when I am just going out and about as I hate not wearing any perfume as I feel naked!
I must admit, I did prefer the body lotion over the EDP mainly due to longevity. Eternity Moment is a lovely perfume but it isn't breathtakingly special or outstanding. It is more of an everyday perfume than one which I would opt for to wear on a special occasion. It smells lovely on my skin but doesn't envoke romantic emotions. It may be fair to say that the scent is perhaps too light and the short staying power it offers doesn't allow it enough time to develop and impress me as much as it should.
I am happy with the low price that I paid for this EDP but wouldn't rush to buy it again as I prefer a perfume with a bit more character. If you want a fresh, soft floral scent, then I can highly recommend Eternity Moment to you.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: lacks character but is pleasant to wear
