Calvin Klein Euphoria Eau de Toilette
Advantages: gorgeous, long lasting, for the women
Disadvantages: expensive...but worth every penny i think
Calvin Klein Euphoria. This is a perfume for women. It is my utter favorite. I discovered it in duty free at the airport on the way to my summer holiday. I was attracted to the purple bottle and now I am hooked! The blurb on the box boasts: "A stunning oriental fragrance that has a rich and attractive signature scent. Calvin Klein Euphoria, a blend of black violet, pomegranate, mahogany wood and lotus blossom make this an enchanting and seductive fragrance". It's a simply little 'explanation' and it needs to fanfare. Its truly heaven in a bowl (to quote friends!)
The Bottle and the Packaging:
I would not expect anything less from Calvin Klein. It is a very simple rectangle box with a powerful purple hue. The bottle is a lovely, sexy little shape, and, to me, looks womanly all by itself. It's a curvy, voluptuous shape, silver and clear. Much more transparent than your average women, but the hint of silver on the top makes it look expensive, mysterious and like it has hidden depths.
What can I say? It is a sensual summers day. Its light, but powerful, in a very non-overpowering sense. That is, you can smell it, and it leaves no doubt in anyone's mind that it is there, but it is not so 'heavy' that you can taste it every time you breathe in! It's aroma is personifyingly feminine. No man could wear this, so its distinctly exclusive, just for the girls! I think you can smell the lotus blossom, whether I would have said that if I did not know the ingredients is anyone's guess, but now I know its in there, I swear I can smell it! Have you ever stood in a woods surrounded by blossom trees? Well it smells like that but with a much richer, cleaner scent not mingled in with grass and random doggy gifts!
Does the scent last:
It really does. To me this is a precious elixir that I have intention of wasting in my little atomizer handbag-size perfume refiller. To me it's a luxury that I want to savor. I do not wear this through my days at work, its way too good for that! I apply a couple of squirts whilst getting ready for my night out and I can smell it through my evening. The lovely thing is that when you greet your friends, they give you a kiss and a hug and tell you that you smell divine - a definitive plus for the confidence factor on any social event! At the end of evening when you hold your wrist up to your nose you can still smell it.
As with any scent, if you are exposed to it for any length of time you become almost immune to i.e. and cannot smell it on yourself even though it is still there. Don't be tempted to reapply, you truly don't need to -ask someone else to smell it and they will confirm for you that its still there and that you smell gorgeous!
How it makes me feel:
Sexy and feminine and worth it!
Mine was £65 duty free. Its not cheap but its worth the spend - you get what you pay for.
My very best discovery of 2012, I will always keep a supply of this little baby!
