The fragrant pair represented by CK One Shock For Her and CK One Shock For Him was introduced in August last year, as flankers to 1994’s classic shared fragrance CK One. The feminine part of this duo is pegged in the oriental floral olfactory group, while a more accurate source from the official Calvin Klein website speaks about a “juicy floriental”.
The time when I got to sample this perfume was at the beginning of this year, after testing several other fragrances and my wife finally agreed to spray a few whiffs from the scent over her skin. We were in Sephora and the first aroma that I remember from the respective day was a strong blackberry note which felt incredible artificial, accompanied by the usual citrus opening. In spite of the fact that the blackberry is only listed in the heart notes, this was my first impression. Then, the fragrances advanced quickly into the mid development, which was fruity, followed in approximately one hour by a dry down embodied by a gourmand accord which was very elusive for me.
The listed notes for CK One Shock For Her, according to the official website, include passionflower, pink peony, jeweled poppy flower in the top notes; liquid chocolate accord, blackberry, narcissi and hypnotic jasmine in the heart; and vanillin, patchouli, magnetic ambers and second skin musk in the base notes.
The image of CK One Shock For Her preserves the iconic flask from the CK One, except this time the chosen color scheme is an opaque white, over which the word “Shock” is printed in bright pink. The video advertisement is very eclectic and employs images taken from various sources.
