As you may know by now, I’m a sucker for a good perfume and this one by Calvin Klein definitely makes it on to my favourites list.
My first impression of perfume always comes from the shape of the bottle which in this case is simple but elegant, especially given the rounded square lid that it has, giving it a slight Chanel-esque feel. The print on it is also very simple yet bold and is placed on clear glass which allows for the beautiful light pink liquid to be seen in all its glory. I actually think that the clear bottle with no strange bumps or lines lets the feminine colour be shown properly and looks really beautiful which I love.
The scent of the perfume is very light and summery, with its top note being lychee, base note of musk and heart note of Chinese Pink Peony. The scent is fairly strong which is great as you don’t have to apply too much and lasts for a good few hours before beginning to dull a little bit.
As the bottle is quite big, it’s not one that I would carry around with me in my handbag to reapply but given that the bottle feels like it’s made of fairly resistant glass, if I had a bigger handbag or less stuff to carry around, I would feel confident in carrying it around without it breaking or the lid coming off.
It is a perfume that I usually only use during the day due to its light feminine nature, however I think that the musk notes in the scent make it suitable for an evening out too so I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to use it for this kind of occasion.
It’s a perfume that I am incredibly happy to have received as a gift and I would definitely repurchase it once I eventually start running out!
