Calvin Klein manufactures lots of perfumes, Calvin Klein Truth being just one of them.
This perfume comes in a simple orangey - beige colour. Calvin Klein Truth is written down the side of the box near to the top in black writing.
The bottle itself is quite original, it is flat one side, and then rounded on the other side so it is quite different compared to other perfume bottles and certainly looks quite striking in my perfume collection. Truth Calvin Klein is written vertically on the bottle in grey writing. The lid is silver and has the same shape as the bottle, flat one side and rounded on the other.
For a 30ml bottle, it costs £23.50 and for a 50ml bottle, you would look to pay around £38 and for a 100ml bottle, you would pay around £54 so given these prices, it isn't the cheapest perfume on the market.
What Does It Smell Like?
This fragrance is odd because it is not light and floral but neither is it too heavy, they have the mixture just right with this perfume as it is feminine without being exceptionally girlie. According to the ingredients, this perfume has fragrance notes of
bamboo, patchouli, vetiver, wet woods, white peony, white clover and sapling as well as sensual notes of vanilla, white amber, silk tree flower, acacia flower, white sandalwood, woods and musk
This perfume is fairly light and fresh with subtle woody layers. This perfume would be suitable for women who don't like fragrances that are too light or too floral but still like to smell feminine.
Does The Smell Last?
This scent has excellent staying power. I spray 2-3 squirts on me in the morning and I can still easily smell it on myself at the end of the day. I tend to wear this perfume to work and it's definitely a hit with the blokes I work with as they always comment when I wear this one, which goes to show it does have good lasting power if they can still smell it after a busy 8 hour shift!
As I mentioned earlier, Calvin Klein produce many perfumes including the following Obsession, CK1, CK Be, Sheer Obsession, Obsession Night, Euphoria, Eternity Moment and Eternity.
This perfume definitely smells more sophisticated than some of the light and floral fragrances air. Calvin Klein state on their website that Truth is meant to evoke 'the lush freshness of nature and the warm sensuality of skin' so this perfume can smell very different on different people so I would advise you to test it on yourself before buying it
I'm not usually the sort of person who has a lot of interest in perfume but when a friend at work started wearing this i loved how fresh and vibrant it was. I ususally find that scents can often be too strong and heady but this is very light and uplifting. I was so impressed i asked her what it was and immediately put it on my christmas list. It has a lovely aroma and so easy to wear, perfect for during the day. Its not heavy or overpowering or overly floral and reminds me of fresh clean linen. I would describe it as freshly fruity with a warmer musky aroma. I have to say that now i wear this perfume every day and it gives me a confident positive feel because i know how good i smell. The packaging and the bottle are very simple which i think matches the product well and the name 'truth' fits it perfectly. i can honestly say this has got to be my all time favourite perfume and i can see myself wearing it for a long time to come.
Calvin Klein: Truth for Women
Positive: It smells lovely! No really it does. It is fresh, feminine, and simply irresistible. I wear this perfume EVERY day. It is lovely. Ok, so that sounds like a bit of a rant, but I really do like it.
I discovered this perfume a few years ago and have worn it every day since. It is ideal for the office, for shopping, for hot days, for cold, suits all weather and is not overpowering. I constantly get told that I smell nice and asked what it is that I am wearing. I wear it on an evening when going out, at work, on planes, and well everywhere. It is a perfume that people will like on you, that wont offend their noses, and that will make you feel good when you wear it.
The packaging? Well the box is simple, understated, and suits its purposes. The bottle is slim, elegant, and again quite understated. The reason? Well in my eyes it is because it doesn't need anything else.
If I were to give a tip, then that would be to shop around. You can pay £50+ for 100ml but you don't need to. On average I pay around £25 per 100ml, but honestly I would pay £50+ if I had to!
Negatives: There aren't any!!!!!
Overall: Buy it, try it, you wont be disappointed.
Mmmmm... where do I start?! I've always been a fan of Calvin Klein perfumes but I have to say this one is my favourite! It's in a tall, elegant glass bottle which looks lovely on your dressing table, but more importantly the smell is to die for! The note that sticks out for me is oranges - it smells juicy and summery, but without the cloying artificial note of some 'fruity' fragrances. There's something a bit deeper going on! It reminds me of being on holiday and wandering through orange groves in Spain or somewhere. It lasts for ages as well, and when I'm wearing it my boyfriend can't stop nuzzling in my neck. It's a really warm smell, and somehow manages to be subtle and invigorating at the same time. It's just the right balance of 'girlyness' and freshness so it never smells too strong or too overpowering. I would recommend this to anyone: in fact I do, whenever anyone asks me what I'm wearing!
I'm not a girly-girl; I only wear make-up when I have to and I'm not concerned about the latest fashions, however I do have a bit of an obsession with smelling good!!! My latest favourite is Truth by Calvin Klein, which I discovered in Duty Free this September. The fragrance: This is a fragrance for women, it's difficult to describe a smell, but I'll do my best. To me, the fragrance is divine - floral with 'woody' undertones which stop it from being 'sickly sweet'. I tend to wear it all the time and I think it's suitable for any occasion. This fragrance is very feminine and romantic, as well as being fresh at the same time - my husband thinks it smells fab too (which is just as well really!). The packaging: Similar to other Calvin Klein products, the box is simple, neat and sophisticated. The bottle is tall and slim in design (and therefore fits easily into my handbag, one side of the bottle is curved and the glass is matt/frosted. The bottle I have is pale pink with a darker pink lid, though the clear versions seem to be the most common. The packaging itself gives the product style and a classy look. Disadvantages: I don't think that the fragrance lasts as long as it should and I do reapply quite often. Being quite a delicate fragrance, there is more of a hint on the skin than a strong smell, I'd go for something heavier if you like to waft the smell around after yourself! The cost: I bought a 50ml Eau de Toilette which set me back around £27 at Schipol Airport. The RRP of this product in UK shops is about £32. Where can I buy it? Cheaply, like me, at Duty Free shops or at any perfume stores, large pharmacies or online. Ingredients: (these mean nothing to me, but just in case you're interested...) The Eau de Toilette contains - Alcohol Denat, Fragrance (Parfum), Water (Aqua), Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ci
tric Acid, Denatonium Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Red 33 (Cl 17200), Yellow 5 (Cl 19140) Complementary Products: This fragrance is available in Eau de Toilette form in 30ml, 50ml or 100ml. Since I liked this perfume so much, my husband bought me a little set of Truth oil essences to complement I have a set of 5 oils which are different versions of Truth: Lavender, Bamboo, Citrus, Vanilla & Sapling. These oils smell very similar to the eau de toilette, but with heavier undertones of the specified fragrance. They can be applied to your pulse points or added to a running bath so that you can soak in the lovely smell!! You can also buy votive candles, body soap, body lotion and incense with the Truth fragrance. To conclude: I love this scent; I think it's good value for money and makes me smell gorgeous - I love it - what more can I say!
My mother had exactly the same problem. Our skin chemistry reacts to one particular ingredient in some perfumes and, within hours, even the most expensive ends up smelling like cats wee! Hence, while I always wear perfume of some sort (well you do when you work in milking parlours, surrounded by the not so sweet smell of cows), I have, in the past, found myself limited to certain brands. My favourites to date have been Anais Anais by Cacharel, Jicky by Guerlain and CK1 by Calvin Klein. I don't like anything too overpowering and I adore the smell of lemons, so anything with a citrus tang is likely to become a favourite. Back in September of last year, I was shopping for a birthday present for a friend when the assistant in the chemists' shop sprayed my wrist with a healthy squirt of "Truth" by Calvin Klein. As I usually do, I went off for an hour or so to allow the perfume to settle before deciding I liked it a lot and going back to buy some. (Sadly, when I was told the price, I decided that she was not that good a friend after all and slipped next door to the hand-made chocolate shop.) Fast forward three months to Christmas shopping. At the beginning of December, I wore for the first time since, the same jacket that I had been wearing for the birthday shopping expedition three months earlier. In the car, my husband commented favourably on my "new" perfume - I wasn't wearing any. After a little random sniffing, we traced the gorgeous smell to the cuff of the jacket where I had been liberally dosed with "Truth" precisely three months earlier. By the end of the day, my wrist smelled as though I had just applied the perfume and I was so impressed, I treated myself there and then. The packaging of the "Truth" range is, as is usual for Klein, very innovative and very different from that of his other fragrances. CK1, for example, comes in a plain, frosted glass bottle while Ckbe c
omes in a similarly shaped black bottle. According to the Cosmetic and Personal Care Packaging website, Calvin Kleins success in fragrance production comes from his "ability to read the buying habits of consumers". The intended theme behind "Truth" is modern simplicity and sensuality in everyday life. (Goodness! My cows won't know what's hit them!) Thus the packaging is simplicity itself. A tall, very thin bottle of highly polished glass that has one flat and one curved side and stands slightly tilted. A silver cap, identical in shape, completes the elegant, sophisticated and very expensive look. The outer packaging is equally smart - a slightly pearlised creamy- beige box that would look good on any dressing table. This fragrance looks expensive. It actually looks as though someone might have spent an awful lot of money on buying it for you. Men, take note - it is impressive! Never mind the packaging, how does it smell? (How on earth can anyone describe a smell over the internet anyway? I'll try my best...) It's a woody smell, fresh and quite light with overtones of flowers and undertones of citrus. Exactly which flowers it has overtones of provoked quite a heated argument between some friends and I last weekend. One friend thought lily of the valley, another violets, while I plumped for lilac. As it turns out, I was probably the closest, since the floral ingredients are listed as white clover, accacia, white peony and lilac. I managed to discover that on searching the internet, since our weekend discussion eventually grew so heated that we began placing bets. However, all bets have since been declared null and void, since the ingredients of "Truth" seem to vary considerably according to which website is consulted. Possible ingredients include bamboo, sapling, white amber, silk tree flower, citrus, vanilla, musk - and vetiver, whatever that might be. (Also in the ingredients list is
something called "wet woods" which conjures up images of mushrooms, leaf mould and damp dogs for me, although I'm sure that wasn't what Calvin Klein intended.) "Truth" is said to react to individual skin chemistry, producing a slightly different and thus unique fragrance for every wearer. I eventually did relent and buy my friend some for Christmas, and the perfume really does smell very different on her than it does on me. The one thing we have both noticed about it is its longevity. If I use it at night, the fragrance is still strong in the morning and needs no repeated application. If I put on a sweater or jacket that I have worn, but not washed, the smell has lingered - for up to three months - and, even after washing my clothes, a hint of scent still remains above the washing powder / fabric conditioner smells. My advice would be to test it before buyng and leave it for at least a couple of hours to settle since, if you don't like it, or if it reacts adversely to your skin, you're going to be stuck with it for an awful long time. However, even though it is quite expensive, I have found that I use a great deal less than I would do of a comparable fragrance such as CK 1 so it is actually very economical. A little goes a long, long way. "Truth" is available in a variety of products listed below. You should be aware that the prices given are approximate - for example, I paid £34.00 for the 50ml spray from Boots although it is available from other firms for £32.50. 30 ml spray - £19.50 50 ml spray - £34.00 100ml spray - £45.00 Oil Essence Kit - £21.50 Body Lotion - £22.00 Body Oil Spray - £18.00 Shower Gel - £17.50 Unlike CK1 and Ckbe, this is definitely not a unisex fragrance but one for the ladies. (That's not to say that men can't buy it - in fact I'm currently trying to persuade my husband that he could quite easily buy it if he happen
ed to know of anyone special with a birthday coming up in March!) Oh, and the only other thing to note about this particular fragrance is that in the past five weeks I have received more compliments than I ever have before - and not just from the cows. I've even had complete strangers stop me in the street and ask what perfume I'm wearing. It is refreshing, sensuous and ideal both as a daytime and an evening fragrance. Mr Nikkisly take note - I LOVE it! (And you're going to hear that an awful lot between now and the end of March.) This year, it really does have to be "Truth" - or face the consequences!
The only word I can say is..wow..this fragrance is to die for. It smells absolutely divine, and it's fairly reasonable price-wise. Although, it being expensive is expected due to it being in the Calvin Klein range. If you want a fragrance to show your feminine side, thats fruity, sweet and oh-so-gorgeous, I definitely recommend this perfume. Wearing this perfume certainly turns heads..towards you! Unlike the other fragrances by Calvin Klein, this one isn't quite so heavy, and still lingers throughout the whole day. The refreshing scent will make sure you feel completely refreshed and smelling wonderful all day, and it's impossible to become sick of the smell. It's suitable for absolutely any occasion, because it's a light, fruity and sensual fragrance. I would recommend this to anyone that can appreciate how absolutely gorgeous it is. It's a priviledge to wear Truth, because it attracts anyones attention, and you'll certainly get that cute guy you've wanted to ask you out for ages coming over to you just to ask you out because of this perfume. OK, so it's a big step, but we can dream, can't we girls??? The prices are £19.50 for 30ml, £32.50 for 50ml, and £45 for 100ml, which is quite reasonable for Calvin Klein products.
Calvin Klein has at last brought out a NEW fragrance; Truth, that is exclusively for women! This new fragrance has a rich deep woody smell with white amber, vanilla and a musky blend giving it that sensual feel to it that lingers on and on. I normally was not attracted to Calvin Klein’s fragrance for women (preferring the men’s fragrances such as Eternity) or the Parisian perfumes, as opposed to american designer fragrances. But I have to say in this case I have made an exception and really do like the CK Truth, maybe at last the Truth is out and Calvin Klein may start making serious perfumes for women and men, instead of mainly unisex, who knows! The good news is that it comes as eau de parfum (EDP) only (which is more concentrated than the eau de toilette) and therefore has more staying power. The best thing to do next time you are in a department store is to test this fragrance on your wrist and leave it, and see what the aroma is like afterwards, see how it reacts with you own body chemistry. It smells fine for me but as with all fragrances one should test personally. There are 3 sizes to choose from; 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. Prices are around £19.50 for 30ml, 50ml is £32.50 and 100mL is £45. Both the 30mL and 50mL work out at 65p per mL but the 100mL is better value at 45p per 100mL. So there is no benefit in terms of price/quantity in buying 50mL - as it costs the same as the 30mL per mL of perfume. Best bet is to try the 30mL and if your really like it a lot and are going to use it go for the 100mL size which offers the best value for money (per ml) – if you love this fragrance then this will be the one go for if you can afford the initial price, otherwise best one will be the 30mL at £19.50 (or less*). The bottle is clean and simple with a softly curved back. It is available in all large departmental stores such as Debenhams, House of Fraser etc etc, and probably a lot cheaper at your duty fr
ee (incase you are flying!!) *Another point to mention is, you may be able to pick this up pretty cheap upto 50% off if you wait till after Christmas when the stores reduce the price of the Gift Sets (only suggestions for yoo dooyooers to save a few more pennies!!) I thought it was great with a hint of masculinity with the woody smell that’s commonly associated with a lot of Calvin Klein fragrances and a touch of feminism too. Truly Sensual!!
