Last weekend I finally had the chance to test the most recent addition brought by Calvin Klein to its CK One line, namely CK One Shock For Him. The fragrance was introduced in 2011, belongs to the oriental spicy olfactory group and was developed by perfumer Ann Gottlieb.
Insofar that I’m not a traditional CK One fan, however a passionate of the classics from Calvin Klein (I’m talking about Obsession, Escape, Contradiction, Eternity), I was pleasantly surprised to notice that this time, instead of a shared scent, Calvin Klein delivered two dedicated perfumes: CK One Shock For Her and CK One Shock For Him.
The first thing that caught my attention was the bottle. Colored in opaque black, the classic shape of CK One looks very attractive and the “shock” logo painted with green in graffiti style intensifies the eye-catching look. Afterward, upon testing the fragrance on my skin, I felt captivated by the refreshing aroma of sparkling Clementine, in a mixture with cucumber and purple lavender. After approximately 30 minutes, the spicy character of black basil included in the heart note made a good combination with osmanthus absolute, black pepper and cardamom. Finally, in the dry down, the masculine touch of the mixture tobacco absolute-musk is excellent contrasted by the blend of ambreine, cashmeran and patchouli.
The video advertisement looks very confusing, probably to accentuate the stimulating sentiment. Overall, CK One Shock For Him is a sexy and spicy fragrance, dedicated to the rebellious characters.
