      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good quality every day perfume by a top brand for a good price.

      I bought this perfume for myself as I needed a new perfume for every day use. This one was on offer and from a brand I trust. It was the smallest bottle available. Though I am now considering buying a bigger bottle to replace the small one.

      ** The Product **
      The perfume is designed to be unisex and for every day/ casual wear. The price of the product means that I don't mind wearing it every day and the scent isn't too heavy so it is perfect for every day use. The smallest bottle is plastic with a push down top that functions as the lid. This is the one I have and is perfect for slipping into a bag to take with you on a day out if you want to freshen up. I also like to take it for weekends away as it is smaller and also costs less so not so much of an issue if I forget to bring it home.

      ** Scent **
      I find it hard to pick out the scents of the fragrance. It smells like a classic perfume to me. Regardless it is a nice scent and I'm happy to wear it. It is light enough to be worn during the day but strong enough that you can smell it.

      Top notes: pineapple, orange, papaya, bergamot, cardamom, lemon
      Centre notes: Nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose
      Base notes: Sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar, oak moss

      ** Lastability **
      I was quite impressed with how much the perfume lasted. Other perfumes I have bought for every day wear haven't lasted very long but I can smell this on my skin for quite a while after I first use it. If you want to keep the scent fresh you may need a top up during the day but I don't tend to bother. You can't really expect perfume to last - or at least not from my experience - but this one does the job it is supposed to.

      ** Price and Availability **
      The perfume is available on the high street in certain beauty stores (e.g. Boots) or it can be found online at various sites (e.g. Amazon). It is an established fragrance so finding it shouldn't be an issue. The bottle comes in four different sizes: 20ml, 50ml, 100ml, 200ml. I got the 20ml to test the perfume with and I loved it. The 20ml is usually around £10 and increases in price to £16, £17 and finally £26. For the quality of product I would say that this is a good price.

      ** Overall **
      It is a good quality perfume at a good price. It is marketed as being unisex and the scent does smell universal. But it is still a good scent that you can be happy to wear every day. Would definitely recommend giving this a go. You can test it in most Boots stores. Or be adventurous and buy the smallest bottle online to see how you like it.

      Calvin Klein's "ck one" for men and women.

      CK one is a fresh, citrus EDT by Calvin Klein which has been around since 1994 when it was created by Alberto Morillas and Harry Fremont.and is still very popular being designed as a scent for both men and women. This explains why I come to be frequently "borrowing" it from part of a mens' miniature collection which contains a small 15ml bottle of this versatile scent.

      In keeping with the Calvin Klein style, the bottle is simple and stylish being a scaled down version of it's bigger family members. The thin, flat bottle is made from frosted glass with "ck one"appearing on the front in thin silver lettering. At the bottom of the bottle appears the words Calvin Klein in simliar tiny lettering. The top is a simple screw on type made from a silver, metallic material and has small ridges around the top in order to make opening and closing easy. On the base of my bottle is a small transparent sticker giving the quantity of scent in the bottle. The bottle is simple and stylish in an understated style.

      I have been testing this scent frequently this week in order to write this review and not having a trained nose I shall tell you that having checked a few web sites these are the scents that you will find that make up the fresh and fruity "ck one"

      Top notes, pineapple, green notes, mandarin, orange, papaya, bergamot cardamon, lemon.

      Heart notes, nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose.

      Base notes, sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar, oak moss.

      As the bottle does not have a spray I find the best way is to dab a little on a finger and then rub the scent onto my wrists and neck. The first hit I get is definitely citrus and fruity and I find it quite refreshing giving my spirits a little energy boost. Soon the other more flowery notes appear and I can identify the rose, lily of the valley and jasmine. I am unsure what orris root smell like and the nutmeg is hiding from me as well. On to the base notes which settle down later as the last act in this play of three parts. These are the woody notes mixing with the musk and amber which linger on my skin.

      My Opinion.

      For me this is a daytime scent which I use to give myself a little boost. It is a summery, day scent which moves through citrus to flowers to wood scents and I find that if applied in the morning it is fading away by the afternoon. I do prefer the ctitrus first hit of this fragrance to the later notes but then I do enjoy citrus type scents as opposed to more flowery ones. It is indeed suitable for both men and women and I would think that it would make an acceptable gift for either. For myself I think that with so many other beautiful scents around I will be content with "stealing" a little from my other half occasionally.

      Price and availability.

      Readily available in many shops and on line, 50ml costs around 19.00pounds, 100ml around 22.00pounds. If you want a really big bottle 200ml costs around 30.00pounds, the bigger the bottle the better the value.

      4 out of 5 stars from me.

      Thank you for reading my review which may also appear on Ciao under splishsplash.

        Disadvantages

        A lovely scent!

        CK One is a classic fragrance.
        I have the 100ml bottle of this fragrance. It is a unisex fragrance so both men and women can use it.


        ~ Price and availability ~
        This fragrance is available in 50ml, 100ml and 200ml bottles!
        The fragrance is available at Boots, Debenhams, John Lewis, House of Fraser, Selfridges as well as most other department stores.
        It is also available online at cheapsmells.com where:
        The 50ml bottle is available for £17.25 (RRP £23.00).
        The 100ml bottle is available for £25.45 (RRP £34.00).
        The 200ml bottle is available for £31.95 (RRP £48.00).
        I think this fragrance is very reasonably priced.


        ~ Bottle ~
        It comes in a rather plain frosted glass bottle with, 'CK One' on the front and 'Calvin Klein' in small grey lettering across the bottom of the bottle.
        The bottle is tall and flat with a silver metal spray nozzle and lid.


        ~ Scent ~
        CK One was first launched in 1994.
        I was recently comparing this to another fragrance I was reviewing and realised how much I like it.
        It is sweet and floral, yet fairly masculine as well.
        The top notes are pineapple, green notes, mandarin orange, papaya, bergamot, cardamom and lemon.
        The heart notes are nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose.
        The base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar and oakmoss.
        It is light and citrusy with sweet floral undertones, but the florals in this fragrance do not make it smell feminine.
        My other half wears this fragrance more than I do and I never think of it as feminine when I smell it on him. It is light, crisp and fresh.
        I really like this scent.
        My other half often wears it for nights out and I always find that I can still smell it on him when he returns from his night out hours later. I tend to choose this one as a day time scent and I have found that it lasts around 8 hours on my skin. It also has good sillage.
        I think it is quite a summery fragrance, but my fiancé doesn't care and will wear it all year round.


        ~ Conclusion ~
        I really like this fragrance. It reminds me of my fiance as it is one of the fragrances he has worn since I met him.
        It is crisp, fresh and clean and I find it reasonably priced.
        The bottle is fairly plain and simple to appeal to both sexes, but not the most boring I have ever seen.
        I would recommend that you buy this for your other half and then share it! It is a lovely scent and it is long lasting on your skin as well.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I like this but I do not wear it very often

        WHAT IS IT?

        CK One is a fragrance that can be worn by men or women.

        THE BOTTLE

        I like the CK One bottle very much. It is very plain and made out of opaque glass with a silver lid. It is a spray bottle and I like that the bottle does not spray out too much perfume in one go and gives me the right amount for every application.

        THE FRAGRANCE

        I think CK One is a very nice perfume and I think it would be ok for a man to wear it even though I think it is more like a womans perfume and my husband would not wear it. It is very fresh smelling because it has got a very citrus smell but it is woody as well and I think that is why men can wear it also.

        TOP NOTES: BERGAMOT, CARDAMOM, FRESH PINEAPPLE, PAPAYA, GREEN TREE ACCORD

        I think this is a good choice for the top notes because they are all so fresh and attractive together. I can not smell cardamom but I think it is the bergamot that makes it smell so strongly like citrus. I can smell pineapple in the fragrance as soon as I spray it.

        MIDDLE NOTES: JASMINE, VIOLET, ROSE, NUTMEG

        I do not think CK One smells very flowery so it is a surprise that there are so many flowers in the middle notes. I can smell jasmine all the way through the perfume but it is not very strong and I cannot smell roses or violet. I think nutmeg is in the fragrance but it is weak and does not make the perfume smell spicy.

        BASE NOTES: MUSK, AMBER, GREEN TREE ACCORD

        I think the smell of amber is quite strong in this perfume and it turns more musky when I have been wearing it for a while. The woody fragrance is stronger as a base note and I think that is why it is a fragrance that men can wear also.

        WHAT I THINK

        I like CK One but I do not wear it very often because it wears off quick and the bottle is too bulked to carry around with me. I think it is not feminine enough because it is not sweet at all and sometimes I think it smells strongly of aftershave.

        I like that it has got a citrus fragrance because I think that makes the perfume smell like summer but it is not a very bright citrus I don't think and that is a pity. It does not claim to have orange or citrus fruit so I cannot say that is a disadvantage and I think the bergamot does a very good job at making it smell so citrus and fresh.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        A 50ml bottle of CK One costs about £23 and I think that is value for a designer fragrance.

        3 Dooyoo Stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        My everyday perfume for YEARS!

        ---Intro---
        According to my searches on the Internet, CK One perfume was launched in 1994. I think that I've been wearing it on the majority of days since 1998. In some respects I'm not brand loyal, tending to get whatever shampoo, washing up liquid and detergent that's on special offer. In other respects I'm very much a creature of habit...I have been using the same toothpaste (Ultrabrite) since the moment I had teeth (the very early 1980s), and perfume is one of those things that it seems I stick with. Perhaps things are changing slightly since I have discovered DKNY's Be Delicious perfume (already reviewed) which is now currently my favourite perfume, but CK One is what I still tend to wear on a day-to-day basis, especially since I found an almost full 200ml (HUGE!) bottle on top of the cabinet in my boyfriend's bathroom! I was so excited by the discovery since I've only ever been able to afford 50ml bottles! I informed him that I would have to use it. Although it is a Unisex scent, I don't think it's one that he wears particularly, so don't think he minds too much! In fact CK One was Calvin Klein's first unisex scent (for those who are interested!)

        ---The bottle---
        CK One comes in a very simple tinted glass bottle. It says on it 'ck one' and 'Calvin Klein', and that is it! When you buy the perfume (which comes in a plain brown card box which includes a list of ingredients in the product) the bottle has a screw on cap, but you can remove this and replace with the spray piece which is included in the box. I think that if you tried to apply the perfume without this then you'd get through it a lot more quickly, but it's nice to have the option.

        ---Wearing the perfume---
        I tend to spray this quite liberally (especially since I now have my boyfriend's bottle) on my wrists and neck - it doesn't matter if you go a bit overboard as it's not overpowering at all. The spray nozzle is very good, and I have never had any wastage.

        Perhaps I have become so used to the CK One scent that really now it is nothing special to me. I do remember that when I was first wearing it all those years ago I did absolutely LOVE it. To be honest I feel it has blended in so well now that it's almost a part of me. I've never had any comments from people saying that I smell nice whilst wearing CK One (which I have had wearing my DKNY perfume), but then I feel that the scent is so subtle that it's unlikely to attract attention, and this isn't a bad thing for an everyday perfume. I'd say that it's definitely a day-to-day perfume, rather than for something special to wear in evenings - in fact my Internet research informs me that it is meant to be used lavishly!

        ---The scent---
        It's very difficult to describe the scent of CK One, but I think it's lovely. According to the experts (I know nothing of these 'notes' of which they speak) the top notes are pineapple, green notes, mandarin orange, papaya, bergamot, cardamom and lemon; middle notes are nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose and base notes are of sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar and oak moss.

        Personally I think that there is a vague undertone of floral scents, and now I'm looking out for it, perhaps I can detect the pineapple and lemon in particular. But for me the perfume just smells simply of CK One! If you've never come across it before then you really do need to try it when you're next out shopping in a department store with perfumes on display!

        I find that the scent doesn't last as well as some perfumes, possibly because it's not so strong in the first place (although everyone is different, so it might last better on other people). At the end of the day if I sniff my wrist, I can detect a very slight hint of perfume, but a very slight hint is all it is!

        ---Price and other info---
        You can currently get a 50ml bottle for £17.25, a 100ml bottle for £22.66, or a 200ml bottle for £37.99 - these are Amazon prices. It can also be found on Boots where you'll get Advantage points, and I'm sure for less in discount perfume outlets and in the Duty Free. Mind you, I think that this costs less (when taking into consideration inflation) than it used to, and really this is a very good value perfume.

        There are other varieties of CK One (such as 'Summer' and 'Shock' ), which have the same overall smell with a hint of something extra. There are also matching CK One products such as deodorant and shower gel, but I have never bought them.

        ---Final thoughts---
        Although I don't think that CK One is the best perfume for lasting well over the course of the day, it is still my favourite overall perfume, and one which I will continue to wear for many years. It's a good value but still classy scent. It also has the advantage that it's Unisex, so could be used by both of you in a couple! If this one doesn't suit you (we all suit different scents), then perhaps try another CK perfume!

        I would highly recommend!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A classic fragrance

          CK one is now quite a classic fragrance in the Calvin Klein range. It has been styled to be suitable for both men and women. As with a lot of fragrance houses, if you like other fragrances in their collection, you are likely to also like this one.
          The packaging
          Simple packaging to appeal to both mean and women alike, with a smooth contoured bottle in a matt finish. You attach the pump yourself after opening the bottle, and this works very well, does not appear to clog etc.
          The fragrance
          Light, as you can imagine not a flowery fragrance but fresh. Would be very suitable as an everyday fragrance for men or women for example in the office as it is very pleasant without being overpowering, but I don't think it's special enough for an evening fragrance for either men or women. It does have a very classic type of smell to it and could not at all be described as cheap- which I'm sure is what everyone wants. Would suit younger rather than older people though I think

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I love it.

          One of my favourite fragrances is Calvin Klein CK One Eau de Toilette and I've been using it for at least the last ten years. A 100 ml bottle of Calvin Klein CK One Eau de Toilette currently costs £22.66 from Boots - which, compared to many Eau de Toilette brands is actually a very good price and one that I am very willing to pay. It is worth shopping around because this fragrance does seem to vary quite a lot from shop to shop, but I do find that usually Boots is one of the better ones in terms of price.

          Calvin Klein CK One Eau de Toilette comes is a very plain bottle that is nothing to write home about, but having said that I actually quite like it's zero frills and simplicity. It has CK One written on the front of the bottle, but other than that the bottle is undecorated. It is transparent and made of frosted glass and so you're able to see how much there is left in the bottle. The eau de toilette is delivered via a traditional spray nozzle - and I generally find about two squirts of the nozzle are enough to deliver enough perfume per application.

          One of the things I like about this perfume is that it is actually unisex and that it really does succeed in this because I can honestly say that this is not girly or masculine but kind of melds perfectly in the middle. It is quite citrusy and zesty and this gives a tangy fragrance that is refreshing and quite summery. I love the lightness of this fragrance which is quite fun, and despite the lightness of the fragrance, it also has really good staying power and only needs to be reapplied after about 10 hours or so.

          Overall, I really like this fragrance and would recommend it for anyone who is just looking for a fresh everyday fragrance.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I think it is aimed more at women that me

          I have been using CK one as one of my regular perfumes for a number of years and I love it so much.

          Packaging and Prices

          The CK one perfume comes is beautiful white matt glass bottle. It can be purchased from all perfume shops and pharmacies such as Boots, and Superdrug. It comes in 3 sizes of bottle all with the same bottle design) a 50ml (£22), 100ml (£35) and 200ml. I tend to purchase the 200ml as it seems better value for money at around £45. As it is such a popular fragrance I find it is often on offer somewhere so its worth shopping around a little. I think the price is very reasonable for the bottle sizes.

          The Perfume

          The fragrence is has a Citrus aroma which makes it light and refreshing. It is said to have Bergamot, Pinapple notes, with a hint of Musk. You can easily pick up on the hue of Musk but I find it difficult to distinguish between the other notes. As mentioned the fragrance is refreshing and light so makes it the ideal perfume for day and night. A few spray to the neck and wrists and you can smell it all day. People always seem to comment on the fragrance when I am wearing it as it is quite distinctive.

          The fragrance is promoted as Unisex, but I feel it is more of a feminine Eau de Toilette, whereas the CK Be (also Unisex) seems more masculine. I know quite a few guys who wear the CK One though and love it!

          I find that generally if i like one fragrance in a range I like the others too and since starting to use CK One I have also liked the CKIN2U and CKShock.

          Well worth trying the small bottle at £22!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Nice fragrance, can be used by both sexes, the bottles last a long time as no need to keep spraying

          Having been bought this as a gift a few years ago by a family member I was surprised..and intrigued to see that it was a unisex fragrance. I sprayed some of it on myself and I really liked it but was worried that people would think I was wearing aftershave! After using it for some time I could see why this is classed as a unisex fragrance as it smells a bit like some of the aftershaves that my boyfriend wears such as Hugo Boss but is slightly less masculine.

          I love the smell of mens aftershave anyway and I am always buying new aftershaves for my boyfriend if I smell a nice one, so this is perfect for me as I am not a fan of really fruity/sweet or girlie perfumes. This fragrance also lasts a good length of time and you can still smell it on yourself after a few hours which I love as I find it frustrating when you are unable to smell your nice new fragrance on yourself!

          I would recommend for both men and women as my boyfriend has used some of mine before and it smelt lovely on him too! It does seem to have got slightly more pricey recently, however, it is still relatively cheap in comparison to some of CK's other perfumes.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Definitely recommend it to both sexes

          The Calvin Klein Eau de Toilette 'One' was a real experiment for me when I bought it. I looked at the description and upon seeing it was unisex was quite intrigued. The price was average and the bottle was simple but effective so I bought it without a second thought.
          When I first used it I received many compliments from my friends asking which fragrance I was using and I can see why! The scent is definitely understated but I find the mild smell is part of its charm and how it lends itself to both sexes. Not before long were my male friends asking for a quick spray before running out the door and coming back with grins on their faces telling me how they'd been complimented.
          Whilst it may be a mild musky smell it is definitely distinct and catches people's attention as you walk past.
          The bottle comes in reasonable sizes and has a simple shape so can be stored or packed and definitely held easily.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great Fragrance

            CK one, or Calvin Klein One, however you want to call it is an uni sex fragrance by Calvin Klein, The CK One range is actually a fairly priced one, I think I got my most recent bottle for around £20 - £25 which i thought for a large size bottle of aftershave/ eau de toilette was not too bad.


            Is it really uni sex? The first thing that you think when you see uni sex is "is it really though?" which this i believe really is, both my girlfriend and I have worn this, at different occasions, to which i found that it suited us both. I would not say it's a feminine fragrance or perfumey however it is not like a cologne, it is a very neutral yet appealing smell. It's an aroma that i have not come across anyone who has disliked it as of yet.


            Value for money? I think the CK One original is very good value for money, the bottle is quite sizable in comparison to others making it last much longer, the bottle also comes with a useful spray top which some don't come with allowing you to disperse it easily wherever you want and you can measure how many sprays you use. It can be shared, you and your partner can alternate who uses it meaning buying only one bottle of fragrance where previously two may have been purchased.


            I genuinally do think this is a fragrance that anyone could wear, it's not unappealing, its not strong but a mellow it's there in the background sort of smell that attracts anyone. Very good value for money for a lovely fragrance

            Well worth it for the cost

            I brought a bottle of this a few months ago from boots and it will only £25 which quite frankly is a bargain. I usually buy hugo boss but felt like a change and it was a good choice on my part seeing as its over £10 cheaper and smells just as good if not better.

            The smell is unique as it has top notes of bergamot, cardamom, pineapple and papaya; middle notes of hedione high cis, (a special formulation derived from jasmine) violet, rose and nutmeg and base notes of musk and amber (copied from above to save typing) and it last well throughout the day so you dont need to use very much obviously increasing the bottle life a lot therefore saving money.

            Ckone is definatly a spray i would use anywhere work and going out but seeing as i work as a roofer its not really the environment to be wasting it on but for people in offices and working closer with the public it makes perfect sense. Ckone has been around for ages and is sometime regarded as old hat but it smells nice others seam to like it too. I had tried Ckone before when out clubbing you always get the toilet attendant selling a variety and i had tried it before and thought it smelt nice but the only thing that stopped me buying it was a tendancy to forget through being hungover or dying in bed due to said hangover and going out to "find that aftershave" was as appealing as falling face first onto barbwire just for a laugh.

            I will definatly be buying this again when it runs out as for the price it can be brought for is too good to pass up really.

            Reliable, elegant and sleek - the Jaguar of perfumes

            I really enjoy perfumes; I own a pretty extensive collection, and like to flit between them and vary things about. But of all the ones I've worn regularly, CK One is definitely the fragrance which has earnt me the most compliments - people notice it, and remark on how nice it is, more often than with any other scent I wear. And that's one of the reasons why it's possibly my favourite perfume of all. I mean, who doesn't like being told they smell nice?

            Reading some of the reviews here, I get the impression many people think CK One is rather old-hat and past it. Oh dear! I've never been very good at staying in touch with what's chic and avoiding the passe. Your choice of perfume is indeed a conscious fashion statement: you're putting a scent in front of people and saying - smell this, I've chosen this to represent me. Which is why I prefer to think of CK One as classic, not hackneyed.

            For me, it all comes down to the smell, and I adore how clean, bright, and reviving this fragrance is. I usually prefer fresh smells, and this is really light and subtle, distinctive but unpretentious. What I particularly like about CK One is how versatile it is. Because it's unobtrusive, fresh and delicate, I can wear it in the office or in a low-key situation, and still know I smell nice without being showy or over the top. But for a more glitzy occasion, you might prefer something richer and more seductive.

            Although it's famously a unisex fragrance, it's not androgynous - and to my nose it smells absolutely feminine on me. If it's me noticing it on someone else, it smells just as nice on both men and women.

            In terms of the ingredients and different notes, I sometimes struggle with any fragance to identify exactly which is which! With CK One, I can definitely smell the musk in the base, and the lovely jasmine in the middle. The bergamot and papya at the top are harder to distinguish.

            Importantly, CK One lasts well. Most often, I wear it to work - and the fragrance is still going strong after lunch, although it's one of those smells I seemingly get addicted to and re-apply anyway, just so I can sniff it again!

            As for price, I got my current bottle - the design of which is pleasingly understated - as a present. At time of writing, most sites list the 50ml bottle at around £16, and the 100ml at £24.

              A classic fresh fragrance from Calvin Klein

              I remember this fragrance coming out when I was at school, and there was a big hoohaa about it, as it was from trendy fashion house Calvin Klein, and it was wonderously both perfect for men and women - a unisex perfume, which was either very uncommon or not actually done before in those days.

              The specific bottle I am reviewing is the miniature version as I got a Calvin Klein fragrance set as a gift, and am working my way through them! I believe this bottle is very close in type to the large size bottle, the only difference being the larger one is a spray bottle, whereas this is not.

              The bottle is very minimalistic, just like a lot of other things in Calvin Klein's ranges including clothes, and for this reason, is perfectly acceptable for both men and women to have on their beauty counter. It has a silver screw top style lid, and the bottle itself is an opaque misty white colour, with the CK logo displayed clearly on the front.

              Top notes of this perfume are bergamot, cardamom, pineapple and papaya; middle notes: jasmine, violet, rose and nutmeg; base is musk and amber, with a green tea accord. The result is a fresh, modern fragrance which would suits many people and those of either gender. It's a lovely day to day fragrance, and really perks you up when you apply it. I actually found myself surprised that I still liked it, even though it has been around forever.

              Lasting power is good on this, as with any good quality Calvin Klein fragrance and I could still smell this on my skin after a number of hours...

              Those ladies who don't like too girly a smell, such as floral, would really appreciate this fragrance, and if you are part of a couple, you could easily share it (though do me a favour and please don't both of you wear it on the same day if you're spending it together!).

              You can find this perfume in various stores online and offline, and costs approx £23 for a 50ml bottle and £34 for a 100ml bottle - quite reasonable I would say.

              As its not really a new fragrance, and there isn't much novelty with it with so many other fragrances out there, I wouldn't be sure this is the best buy at the moment, but if you can find it at a good price on sale, its worth checking out, as I think Calvin Klein fragrances tend to pass the test of time and are deemed to be classics in their own right, with many other fragrances such as Eternity etc still being firm favourites.

                Disadvantages

                If you want to live the past its perfect

                I read a book recently which the premise was how to start dating women and chat women up in bars. Alot of the things in the book were common sense but he did claim that any man can be with any women. One of his many key points was that guys need to dress and present themselves in a way that would make them harder for women to resist.

                The point to this introduction therefore is that one of tne of the ways you can look and feel good is to wear a suitable fragrance. However for me this is now outdated and many other scents have gone way past it. If you are trying to present yourself in an attractive way to women then this is not one you should be looking to spend your hard earned cash on.

                It was very popular and that is one of its down falls. It is a multi sex fragrance used by both men and women and because of that does nothing to impress me. It is neither one or the other and I just feel it falls bang in between. There is no kick or smell that suggests to others I am here. There are far better products on the market.

                On the plus side it is made by a well known brand and at least you therefore have a bit of status to say what you are wearing at that dinner party. I am sure some people will be impressed. The smell itself is quite minty and fresh. There is a type of citrus scent too that gives it a lift however it is just a bit early 00 or late 90s. It is just not an exotic bottle that you are going to think that is money well spent. It does not give you enough of a surprise in the scent that you would think this is lovely. Although it is a bit cheaper than other brands. You will be paying anything from 20-£25 but really the added extra that you spend on something else will worth it.

                To some up this review the book I read suggests something called peacocking. Dressing a little different to other men. So in other words ditching that checked shirt everybody in the bar will have and putting on a shirt and tie or jacket with jeans. Therefore if you want to be the same as everyone else buy this. It is ordinary and common and if you want to appear outdated then this will be great for you. I know that sounds slightly arrogant and snobish however if you want to be noticed and smell really good then I would steer clear of this. The fragrance just does not live upto the brand anymore. It has had its place in the market and was an excellent fragrance just not in these modern times.
