The I-know-what-not-what-you-carry-should-be-scented
Who among us doesn't know that? In the morning you stand helplessly and helplessly in front of the wardrobe and have no idea what to wear.
After a lot of searching and putting aside, a favourite piece is finally chosen, which then proves to be the right decision and gets you through the day well.
This can be transferred just as well to fragrances. Sometimes you stand in front of your selection and think about it, take a bottle out, sniff, put it back and look around for another one, until you decide on one of your favourites and feel really good about it.

Whenever I feel like it, I always reach for CK One again and again in the end, because its friendly, refreshing and unobtrusive nature makes many a busy and stressful day easier for me or accompanies me cheerfully and relaxed on leisure activities.

At first, cheerful floral-citric-fresh notes jump out at me and really cheer me up. Then a very nice, pleasant and light soapiness develops, through which a touch of tea shines through again and again. Whereby tea with soap is not necessarily so tasty... But on the skin and on the clothes it looks very good.
The floral and citric notes are still there, until the fragrance finishes with a nice round, I would say "clean" note, which is still underlined by floral notes.

The whole thing does not have such a great endurance, one is perceived for about 4 hours, then the scent withdraws to a level close to the skin. Then it is already time to spray. But with the quite favorable prices this is not so bad The fact that CK One does not have such a long veil of scent makes it primarily suitable for office use. I myself work very closely with customers, so a not so obtrusive scent is appropriate anyway.
But he also cuts a good figure in his free time.

I've known CK One since its release in 1994, 24 years ago now. Even after all these years the fragrance has lost nothing of its friendly, refreshing charisma for me.
Surely, in the meantime one has not only tinkered with it once, taken ingredients from it, thinned it out and probably even watered it down, I am sure it used to be a bit stronger and tarter and has also lasted longer. Nevertheless I like the current formulation very much and especially now in summer it is often used.
The flacon is simple and as unagitated as the fragrance, I can still remember the more distinctive writing.

And I also think CK One is equally good for him and her, and its pleasant friendly unobtrusiveness makes it a beautiful and unexcited companion. Furthermore, CK One doesn't seem like an outdated product to me, but still up-to-date and fitting for today's world. But I'm sure you all already know that
Anyway, I am very glad that he made it into the 21st century. In my opinion rightly a classic and so well known.

I know, I'm certainly not telling anything new, but I wanted to dedicate my first comment here to a beautiful favorite fragrance.

I wish everyone a happy sniff :-)

Why classical fragrances never lose their value...
is very easy to explain. It takes a lot of work and skill to create a fragrance at the right time, which everyone wants to have in the here and now and which makes such wide waves that you still want to wear it in 20 years. I think CK One is such a fragrance. I also wore it for the first time when I was 15 (that was in 2001, when I could afford it), when Levi's, Wrangler, CK etc. were the jeans brands and everyone wanted "blue washed". I was one of them. Right now, I feel like I'm back in that time. Especially the youth is into this style right now, high waist jeans, classic sneakers from Reebok or Adidas, bumper jacket and as fragrance CK One. For me, it's a feel-good fragrance with which you don't do anything wrong, always smell well-groomed, without appearing too clean or soapy.

10 points because...
...I find the current 6.9 points really unjustified. The fragrance is clear, light, and quite unique. I just got a little bottle for Christmas. It smells like when you wore Doc Martens, Palestinian scarf and bomber jackets.
It still smells good and somehow fascinating.

PS: The Plateau-Buffalos are back on the market. LOL

Very pleasant, fresh and floral at the same time
Have CK One discovered very late for me and ask myself in retrospect, why. Did not expect much and since the fragrance is also an all-rounder and bestseller for many years, I wanted to have him actually only in my collection, without wanting to spray him now great often.

After several weeks "standing around" then times tested and what can I say? Am absolutely positively surprised. Fresh, fruity and floral at the same time. While comparable fragrances can often be assigned to only one category, CK One goes somehow in the width and reaches thereby incredibly pleasant. And even if you've smelled this fragrance several times over the years, it still surprises me every time. In my opinion, a timeless classic, which does not get boring and can also be worn gladly still in the future.

Durability average, sillage slightly above average. Only the flacon says to me not so, because I find it not particularly appealing when the spray head has no cap.

Unisex? Absolutely.
Calvin Klein One, an ingenious fragrance.
Purchased about 4 years ago as a change for the summer months. A bargain, 100ml for 25,90,-.

But let's start with the description of the fragrance.
At first it starts quite citric and intense, with a light sweetness.
After about 10 minutes the fragrance appears "tropical" to me. I always think of mango, but this one's not in here at all. It's the papaya. The mandarin slumbers a little behind the bergamot. But the top note isn't bad at all. Better, becomes One in the heart note, then, when this freshness at all possible correctly dominates. Such a great interaction, really tasty. The bergamot is pushed into the background, the "tropical" one remains.
The fragrance slowly increases in sweetness until the base note unfolds. And that's exactly the part I don't like, the scent seems a little spongy to me. One could have kept the certain "tropical" one still. But still the head and heart note is a dream. Good freshness with a slight sweetness.
The sweetness in the fragrance was necessary, because that is exactly what makes it so unisex.

However, the durability is really ridiculous, only 4 hours it lasts. The Sillage is pretty good for that, at least in the top note. In the heart note, it decays a little.

The frosted glass bottle has a great recognition value in any case. Simply designed and lies well in the hand. The spray head does its job.

Conclusion: Tropical, sweet fragrance. Inexpensive, recognizable, but with a mediocre durability.
For me the companion when I don't know what to wear:)

Have a nice Sunday afternoon all of you!

It's a nostalgic scent which reminds me of the holidays during my adolescence in the south of Portugal. Fresh, citrusy, floral, aquatic.

One of the most versatile colognes ever created. Excellent composition with cheap ingredients and poor performance.

A floral/fresh classic from the 1990s. Perfect for after a workout or running errands on a summer day. Not so much for a long event.
