In my opinion, Truth is a really great fragrance, but I do feel it should be reserved for slightly more... charged situations. It's a perfume for dancing, romancing and generating some intimacy. It wears quite heavy and, also, seems to wear really very differently from person to person so is well worth trying out first to make sure it suits in a way you're happy with. There is a nice mixture of sweet and spice throughout the fragrance and quite an astringent base, this combination is one I have found to work as quite a seductive eau de toilette. It's potent, but attractive. It's smooth, but memorable. It also has to be said that the fragrance wears with pretty serious endurance, lasting quite literally all day. It comes, unsurprisingly in a stylish bottle as is Calvin's style so looks good in your collection as well as being good value for a designer fragrance.
Calvin Klein: Truth for Men
I find it very important to smell nice and it gives me more confident when I'm out and about. You want to be noticed and especially when going out, people always come near you while speaking and it's just nice when they notice you are wearing a nice fragrance. I like the Calvin Klein fragrances and almost every fragrance they bring out I like.
These days 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. The Calvin Klein: Truth for Men is now one of the many fragrances they have.
The Calvin Klein: Truth for Men comes in a very styly full and has an almost classic but still modern look. The bottle itself is see trough and has a silver cap on top where also the spray is located. The bottle has an angle of 90 degrees which gives it a more distinctive look and makes it less boring. The spray works good and it gives me the right amount which means I only spray myself 2 to 3 times around my neck.
The fragrance has a very distinctive scent and feels very fresh with a hint of mint but at the same time it's a bit spicy when it settles down. I think this really makes it more a male fragrance. It's not to strong and settles down perfectly and stays with you during the day.
You can buy this fragrance in two sizes from 50 and 100ml. The 100ml cost around 25 pounds which is not a bad price for a fragrance especially one that comes from Calvin Klein. I think the fragrance is definitely worth it.
I was going to say that this fragrance is more a evening scent but come to think about it, I wear this fragrance also during the day. Because it's not to heavy and strong, it's a perfect scent for day time and it gives a good confident feeling. I hate wearing a too strong scent when you see people having a disapproval look on their face.
It's a typical man fragrance with a fresh and little bit wood scent. It surely doesn't smell like flowers or anything. It's definitely one that i would buy again.
Calvin Klein Truth for Men is not quite as strong or heavy a scent as I am usually drawn to, as my favourites are more like Issey Miyake, or Hugo by Hugo Boss. However, there is definitely masculinity in its purest form evident from Truth.
I was first drawn to buying the men's version of truth by the women's version, which has got to be in my top ten female fragrances. I love the smell of it. The men's version is quite similar to the ladies, but there is a difference and it embodies the warmth of the skin and the masculine sexiness of nature together that make it more manly and less feminine that the female version.
Calvin Klein Truth for Men is an aromatic, sensual, woody fragrance. Its The initial smell that you get seems to me to combine a green, watery freshness with aromatic Basil - the Basil is really strong once you realise that that is what the smell is. The sensual woods in the lingering smell after the initial burst definitely radiates a masculine sexiness - at least so I have been told ;-)
I think that the male version of Truth has a warm sensual fragrance. According to the Calvin Klein website the signature fragrances are bamboo, vetiver (i do not even know what this is), white peony, white clover and sapling which are combined with vanilla, white amber, silk tree flower, acacia flower and musk. Now to me that sounds like a lot of smells. However it is quite nice all mixed together and I would be happy wearing this scent either during the day or at night. It is not as heavy as other fragrances I like and you may have to re-apply to keep a strong smell.
50ml costs range from £27.50 to £35.00. It is a little pricier than some others, but it is a nice treat.
----<C.K Truth (EDT)>----
I just conducted my own "how long does this stuff last?" test.
Two and a half hours ago a sprayed my fore arms with a few scooshes from my 100ml bottle of Truth.
Too begin with the smell is very fresh, revitalizing, with no sandalwood, unlike 212, it smells somewhere in that area, somewhere between 212 and CK One.
I found this is a scent, that when you heat up, it becomes more potent.
Not one for the late teens but more a mid twenties - early thirties. (I'd be saying forties if I was in my early forties), It is a man's aftershave by that I mean it wouldn't smell right on a nineteen yr old.
---->What's In It?<----
Core of canopy greens accented by basil and cardamom, so this will give it a minty fragrance.Cardamom is from the ginger family, and is quite evident in Truth after the initial fragrance dies down, if you like mint or ginger, you will enjoy wearing this.
----<How Long Does It Last>----
I've had this on for nearly 3 hours, and when administering, I made a point of putting a minimal amount on**, and it is still fragrant, even though my nose has adapted/gotten used to the smell, I'm guessing it has a few hours left in it, enough to see you through the best part of your working day, or a night out.
**(one of the reasons men bathe themselves in some aftershaves, is, they get used to the smell, and think they need more than they would normally apply).
100mls of Truth (EDT) is anywhere from GBP19.99 for 100mls to 25.99 for 50mls (The Fragrance Shop), I would suggest "The Perfume Shop", I have just read that theirs is GBP19.99 per 100mls.
----<Putting It On>----
Be quick in putting it on as you can smell the fragrance evaporating, if you have bought the EDT don't spray it into your hands then put it onto your face, spray around your jawline and go quickly from there if you want to get the best from it. This helps capture the essentials from wasting into thin air.
---->Occasions To Wear?<----
I wouldn't say I'd wear it as an every day lotion, maybe once to twice a week at work/meetings with a light spray round the bottom of your neck, and definitely at night, going out, it does react as your body heats up
Again I would say to any young guys thinking of getting it, to maybe go with something a bit less exotic.
I would be glad if someone told me this about Kouros when I was 18, this is a similar piece of advice, except Kouros, this isn't.
And go easy as it needs two fingers to spray, it can come out like a car wash jet spray .
I personally do not like the idea of having to use two fingers to spray the bottle, a one digit spray is good enough, or as they say "if it isn't broke, don't fix it".
The bottle sits at an angle just south of 90 degrees, when I first got it, I was wondering what on earth was going on, that same thing you do trying to put the key in the keyhole when you're drunk, if you have it you'll know what I mean.
You could drop this bottle from a 3-4ft set of drawers and not worry about it breaking, it is a solid bit of glass.
A while back I was in need of a new aftershave and my ex kindly bought me a gift of Calvin Klein Truth Eau De Toilette. I had not been expecting the gift so was obviously greatly pleased to have received it, and having never heard of it before was intrigued as to what the scent of the fragrance would be. I knew that I would not be disappointed, and having sprayed myself for the first time with it was greatly impressed with its smell. Calvin Klein fragrances never fail to impress me and Truth is no exception to this rule, it is a fantastic fragrance and is one that I have used most days for the last few months. Although I had not previously heard of it, Truth has actually been in production since 2002 for the male market.
The bottle I was bought is of the 50ml size, it is contained within an interestingly shaped sloped bottle; glass at the bottom and silver to the top. The design is something that greatly appeals to me, it is slick and stylish and looks perfect sitting there on the shelf. The back of the bottle contains a curve, but at the front it slopes straight up. Often I find that the bottle is actually more appealing than the fragrance itself, however that is certainly not the case here as Truth is without doubt one of the finest scented eau de toilette's that I have ever had the pleasure of using.
Fragrance scents are one of the hardest things to describe I feel, there is so much you feel you could say about them and yet when you come to putting words on a page they just don't seem to flow. What I would say of Truth is that it has a fresh smell, it sits well on your body and is an extremely pleasant odour. It is an extremely sensual scent, woody undertones can definitely be smelt here. There are notes of cedar, patchouli, and basil; this combination makes for a phenomenally fresh smelling scent indeed, one that would be suitable for all occasions. It's a light scent, so won't get up the nose of those such as myself who have a weak smell threshold. Some fragrances can have me in coughing fits, my chest tightens and I struggle to breathe; this certainly isn't the case here, Truth is an incredibly light scent and is one that will not cause offence. The beauty of it is that not much is needed either, whilst the scent is light; even the slightest of sprays will be more than enough to keep you smelling fresh and feisty for the rest of the day ahead.
There are so many fragrances out there on the market that to be noticed, you really need to make a good first impression. With the innovative shape of the Truth bottle, it certainly makes itself known and is one that I would definitely notice first if out aftershave shopping in a store. Although I did not personally purchase this eau de toilette, it is one that I will most certainly be buying again in the future. I tend not to stick with any one brand or fragrance, but in Truth I feel that I have finally found my scent. It suits me perfectly and with a smell so fresh, I could never feel anything but clean. On consulting my partner I discovered that she actually paid a price of £30 for the 50ml bottle from Boots, and in purchasing it here also received a free gift of a green Calvin Klein bath towel. If you delve deep into the depths of the internet and take a trip to Fragrancenet.com however, the 50ml bottle can be bought at a price of £16.36 whilst the 100ml bottle will set you back £22.46. If wishing to purchase this fragrance in the conventional fashion on the high street then you will find that at current, Boots actually have it on special offer and the 50ml bottle as I have can be bought for £19.99. Truth is a fragrance that I personally can't recommend enough, it's so fresh and funky; the perfect fragrance for any night out, or in fact any night in for that matter.
As you would expect from a leading fragrance manufacturer Calvin Klein has a wide variety of popular perfumes for both men and woman with many having different styles of the same fragrance line for men and women. The shape of the bottle is often slightly different for each sex and Calvin Klein's Truth fragrance is no different.
With so many different fragrances on the market Truth has done well throught it's time on the market as One of the most popular fragrances from Calvin Klein in recent years Truth was launched in 2003 and continues to sell well five years on in 2008.
Now onto the smell of the fragrance and you won't be dissapointed with it as you get a really fresh scent with hints of canopy greens accented by basil and there's also a hint of cardamon. The fragrance also has a slightly woody tone which gives a nice balance. It makes a really sensual fragrance.
It is great for many different situations. You can use it for everyday whether you are working, playing or just being casual. When I go out to the local pubs or clubs I often notice people wearing this fragrance and it lasts very well and doesnt lose it's smell for hours after spraying it.
The good thing about quality fragrances like Truth is that you don't need to cake yourself in it to bring the fragrance out. All you need is just a couple of sprays to the front of the neck and a little around your chest as usual.
Generally I have been very impressed with the look of the bottles from Cavin Klein fragrance and Truth is no different, as you can see, Truth comes in a fancy looking glass bottle with a simple button for spraying the fragrance and as the bottle is seethrough you can see how much of the fragrance you have got left in the bottle.
You can buy a variety of sizes of Truth Eau De Toilette, they come in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles and there are also two other products in shower gel and after shave. You can expect to pay around about £30-£40 for a 100ml bottle of tghe fragrance but there are always some great deals on the internet to look out for.
Where does it rank
There are some nicer fragrances out there that will appeal to a wider range but this is one of the most popular and well known fragrances from Calvin Klein so It definetly has it's value. A fine fragrance that will appeal to a lot of people and it is one of the top fragrances that women buy for their partners.
This is a fine fragrance that is reasonably priced compared to other fine fragrances out there and it has a lot of appeal in many different areas. Smell, Style, Look all seem to be covered here. If you are looking for a new fragrance and are a fan of Calvin Klein fragrances then try the truth and even if you have had this before try it again.
Calvin Klein Truth for Men is a scent drawn from nature. This aromatic, sensual, woody fragrance is centered around a clean, watery, green freshness that is accented by aromatic basil and fresh cardamom. Truth cologne by Calvin Klein is recommended for evening wear.
