The only blue worth buying
Oh, this is nice. It starts off in a similar way to other blue scents, but then veers off into leathery territory and stays there for the rest of its life. Some leather fragrances come up smelling of nothing but leather on me, but this doesn't. It's kind of peppery, but also kind of citrusy. I like it! I really like that Calvin Klein scents have a pretty common thread of freshness for the most part.

This is the best variation of Defy in my opinion - the EDT is just chemically citrusy blech, and the Parfum, while also very nice, doesn't do much more than a prominent cacao note. Like the Parfum, I really appreciate that Calvin Klein have done something different to other blue scents with this. I don't think it's going to put a spotlight back on them, but it's much better than the stuff they were putting out just a few years ago.

As with all Calvin Kleins, this is pretty good value - you can get 100mL of it for 90 AUD, or 200mL for just $20 more. So, if you like it enough, getting a lot of it won't set you back too much.

Is this going to be the blue fragrance I end up buying?? We shall see.

A blue scent worth a try
I just got this after smelling it at my local discount pharmacy.
This one has suprised me as I was not a fan of the edt that one opened nice and fresh but the dry down I didn't like.

The edp opens to my nose with a candided orange sweetness not too much just the right amount along with some slight spice from I would say the black pepper after 15-20 minutes a smooth leather creeps in with some underlined slight smokey nuance then about 30-45 minutes further in it becomes more woody and smokey as the vetiver in the base comes through more.

After another 15-20 minutes you are left with a slight spice candided orange and smokey leather dry down that smells really good.

This is nothing new or unique but it is very mass appealing my wife complimented it after my first testing and commented that it's as good as ysl y edp and dior sauvage edp as far as mass appealing the scent is.

In regards to performance it's quite good also longevity is a good 7-8 hours on my skin and on clothes 9-10 and to be expected for an edp it sits closer to the skin but has a good push for an hour to an hour and a half.
All in all I'm happy with my purchase and the price proposition makes it also a very appealing.

The thing that impressed me the most with this one is the scent is well blended and its not overly synthetic smelling

Is this another blue scent yes it is but it's a nice twist on the DNA in my opinion and possibly one of Calvin Klein's best current offerings so if you get a chance get your nose it parfumo family
