~~CALVIN KLEIN EUPHORIA PERFUME (Eau de Parfum) for women ~~
I recently had one of those special days which come once a year when your loved ones help you shower you with presents. Amongst the presents I get are usually perfumes, and gift vouchers from various High Street shops. I am a bit particular about the perfumes I like as I usually like those with good scent and high staying power. One of the perfumes high on my preference list is the Calvin Klein Euphoria. Luckily my sister seems to have picked this hint somehow and she gave me this perfume as a present.
~~Background Information and Product Description~~
Clavin Klein Euphoria is a popular fragrance which was launched in 2005 and the Euphoria range from Calvin Klein now includes a range of other scents and toiletries, including luxurious body lotion, shower and bath cream.
Clavin Klein Euphoria perfume comes in unique boat shaped striking bottle with silver bottom and sides and transparent glass on the upper surface allowing you sight of the priceless purplish liquid inside. The lid also comes in silver and is long and narrow with the words Calvin Klein Euphoria printed on it. It comes packed in a purplish box matching the colour of the contents of the bottle.
~~Availability and Price~~
Clavin Klein Euphoria is available from most cosmetic outlets including Boots, Superdrug, Perfume outlets and department stores like Debenhams, House of Fraser and also online from at least 37 online shops.
The price depends on the volume but generally a bit expensive if you consider the unit price.
Prices as of December 2011:
30 ml: from £20 - £40
50 ml: from £40 - £45
100 ml: from £50 - £65
Once in a while the perfume also comes with a free bag.
The 30 ml and 50 ml are also available as gift sets which cost within the same range as the perfumes so the body lotion really comes as an added bonus.
Euphoria 30ml Eau de Parfum gift set contains Eau de Parfum 30ml & Body Lotion 100ml
Euphoria 50ml Eau de Parfum gift set contains Eau de Parfum 50ml & Body Lotion 200ml
~~Scent and Staying Power~~
Clavin Klein Euphoria has a soft floral scent and is not too overpowering for me. It has a great smell which draws compliments every time I use it. Can be strong for other people but I love it.
It is a popular fragrance amongst ladies who love prominent fragrances like me. Its scent lasts throughout the day and it is suitable for everyday wear, an evening out and even those special occasions. I tend to use mine for those special occasions as I do not feel it is a perfume for casual use. I have other perfumes I use for day to use but this one is too dear.
It lasts for a very long time, all day and lingers on even after I have removed the clothes. There is no need to keep the perfume with me at all times as there is really no need to do a few puffs of spray later after a few hours like with other perfumes. I therefore only need to use a bit so despite the high unit price, it does last longer so making it cheaper in the long run.
The body lotion in the gift set also smells equally good. I wouldn't use the lotion and the perfume together as the compounded effect of the scent can be overpowering. I tend to use the lotion for day to day use and the combination only for those very special occasions when I want to stand out from crowd.
~~Words of wisdom~~
Having done a bit of research, this information may be of help to someone out there.
--Do not be confused as there are a few Calvin Klein Euphoria perfumes. The one I have reviewed is the Calvin Klein Euphoria for women and in the women range there is also is the Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria and Calvin Klein Euphoria Blossom. I can't really say much on the other tow as I haven't yet given them a try.
--Fragrances generally come in various concentrations even of the same product so you have to be careful you know what you are buying.
~~~~Perfume Extract --Contains 20-40% of aromatic compounds and can last between 3-8 hours.
~~~~Eau de Parfum -- Contains 10-30% of aromatic compounds and can last between 4-6 hours.
~~~~Eau de Toilette -- Contains 5-20% of aromatic compounds and can last between 4-6 hours.
~~~~Eau de Cologne -- Contains 2-3% aromatic compounds and can last between 1-4 hours.
The aromatic compounds are the ones which give the perfume its scent so the higher the concentration, the stronger the scent and usually the better the staying power as well. The price is also directly related to the concentration, so the Eau de Parfum costs more that the Eau de Toilette.
Calvin Klein, Euphoria like other fragrances is available as Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette.
~~My overall opinion~~
Calvin Klein Euphoria is a unique perfume which does exactly what a perfume should do. Yes I have fallen in love with this one and I will certainly buy another one once this one is finished.
Yes I will recommend it to a friend provided they are prepared to part with the money.
My rating for this one is 5 stars as you would have guessed by now.
Of course you might have also guessed right, the special day was my birthday.
Thank you for reading and rating.
