Calvin Clein initiated the CK One phenomenon in 1994. It was one of the first unisex fragrances that reached instant popularity among the customers and since 2004, the story is re-invented each year with the summer version of this clean and simple fragrance. This way, everybody is happy: the clients because they enjoy every year their favorite fragrance in limited edition and the fashion house, because it maintains alive the brand awareness (and the banking accounts as well).
Presented in March 2008, CK One Summer 2008 is the summer flanker of the original CK One, a shared woody aquatic fragrance developed by perfumer Harry Fremont, from Firmenich. The fact that is a limited edition makes it scarce; however you might find this fragrance on stock on a couple of retailers. For this new perfume, Harry Fremont, (who is, incidentally, the same that authored CK One) employed some of the initial notes in his first creation and took all to another level, since the fragrance was intended as a shot of freshness for the hot summer days. It seems that the perfumes developed for the most torrid period of the year (in the northern hemisphere, at least!) benefited from an increased appreciation over the years, hence the companies were getting ready to supply this demand.
CK One Summer 2008 is built with entirely fresh and intoxicating notes of spicy cardamom and mint, blended in fruity accords of watermelon and cucumber and in the final all wrapped up in elegant woody notes and white musk. The pleasant smell that develops on your skin subsequent to the application of CK One Summer 2008 requires a lavishly spray from time to time.
The bottle of CK One Summer 2008 keeps featuring the ingenious structure of spray or splash, except this time the sea like hue was employed for the liquid’s color, revealed through the transparent glass. Overall, CK One Summer 2008 proves to be a fresh limited edition fragrance, designed to spend your summer with.
