Calvin Klein Euphoria Women Eau de Parfum
Date: 17/04/13, updated on 17/04/13 (29 review reads)
Advantages: Smells expensive
Disadvantages: none really except I find the bottle is a little awkward
My mum always brings back perfume from her holiday, she does it out of habit as the stuff she brings back from the duty free is often dearer than can be found else where. One of her latest offerings was Euphoria by Calvin Klein (I hadn't even noticed it was by CK until doing this review).
Looking on line I see this perfume is quite expensive- around £30 for 30ml going up to over £50 for 100ml. The bottle I've just finished is 50ml which seems to be the size I always receive. There is an EDT available but doesn't seem much cheaper.
The bottle is awkwardly shaped like a glass banana with a tall silver lid. The spray nozzle is good quality and gives a decent blast of perfume. The dark pink box is simple with the Euphoria written in small letters.
I've looked online for the 'notes' as I wouldn't have a clue by just smelling the perfume:
Pomegranate, Persimmon, "Lush Green Accord"
Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Black Orchid
Liquid Amber, Black Violet, Cream Accord, Mahogany Wood
These 'notes' always surprise me as I can't pick many of the fragrances out as they all blend together, there's a couple of scents that over ride the others- in this case blossom and orchid for me. The perfume is sweet and has a feminine exotic feel to it. Euphoria smells expensive, it doesn't have a cheap scent to it at all. It reminds me of an older version of my daughters Britney Spears Fantasy perfume which I also like as that too has a sweet fragrance (and is a lot cheaper). I think Euphoria would be too heavy for my daughter though even at night.
The perfume starts out very strong and I always put too much on, fortunately it dies down. Unlike other strong perfumes I get used to this one after a couple of hours and can hardly detect it on myself however other people can smell it on me. I do get compliments whilst using this particular perfume and it does get recognised. My sister wears Euphoria and I can smell it on her hours after she's applied it and I know she doesn't top up during the day so it does have longevity- I just can't smell it on myself as much, but she probably squirts more on than me.
I do like this perfume and wear it most days, unlike other strong perfumes it isn't too overpowering and sickly- well maybe a bit when it first goes on if you spray too much. Unusually for me I use the whole bottle, my Obsession EDP is still half full and will most likely stay that way.
I would recommend it and give it 4 Stars because it can be initially overpowering if I use too much which is easily done because of the spray.
Summary: A classy perfume for most ages
