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.

A perfume suitable for the gym,before sleep,a "safe" choice for teenagers.
The perfume I avoided buying because I had linked it to the boys in high school ... (all the boys were wearing it, the girls preferred the tommy girl and me the red jeans)

A perfume suitable for the gym,before sleep,a "safe" choice for teenagers.

Intense lemon at the beginning that along the way you smell as if you have been washed with a jasmine soap.

Unfortunately, its longevity is not long, which justifies the moments when I prefer to wear it - at gym - but this lack is overcome by its freshness.

ps:I almost take an oath that it reminds me of a perfume from the beauty shop, with a similar packaging. I broke my head to remember it but nothing. It was in 1998.

It brings back memories...
Maybe one or the other of you still knows the perfume chain Yaska. I think it was bought up by Douglas at some point. But back then, when I was still a teenager and spent hours in this perfumery with my friends in the city, it was always associated with special excitement for us 'chicks'. Observed by the shop assistants partly with suspicion, partly with amusement, we always tried out a lot.... And when we came home we smelled like everything (and bought bath balls like crazy, but that's a completely different memory...) But I was particularly taken with this scent at the time. And I was mighty proud when I had him also at some point my own bottle.

Recently, he was brought by a sample sent along a perfumery again in my presence. Hardly sprayed, the past was there again: fresh, citrusy, clean and a fragrance to feel good but not to stand out big. Absolutely unisex for me.

I think he is also to blame for the fact that I still have an unbroken preference for unisex fragrances. I would buy him in the meantime no longer, for me the durability is too bad. But the sample was a nice trip back to the youth....

Great citrus scent
For me a constant companion in my perfume collection. I always strike when it is to be had times favorably.

Super refreshing citrus scent!

I like to use it in the summer or after sports.
If CK would manage to make the fragrance more durable, it would probably be the summer fragrance par excellence.

Everyday fragrance
CK One was one of my first fragrances, it is a super basic fragrance that you can recommend to everyone. Whether at work, on a first date or at Hasue, you can't go wrong! In itself you can always wear it.

I personally like to wear this scent most when doing sports, because it is absolutely in order from the price-performance ratio and the lasting length for about 3 hours. Even with a training session you have the feeling of smelling good, even if you have to spray it from time to time, it doesn't matter that much compared to other fragrances.

With its fresh lightness and at the same time a light heaviness, CK One is a good basic fragrance for him and her.

on you and you with love and life
Top note tangerine, papaya, bergamot, lemon - Heart note green tea, nutmeg, violet, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose - Base note amber, musk, if you say so, I believe it! All the happiness on earth is united in this intergalactic stroke of luck. Okay, CK has a little pathos, but it's not a lie. You wouldn't need any other things... if there weren't so many other beautiful scents, Smile.

The quiet revolution
Oh, yeah, the '90s. As a child of the time when I made some of the most important experiences of my life, finally graduated from high school and just started studying, this decade has shaped me immensely. A few years ago I read an article that described the 90s as the first decade that started to imitate things from other eras. At the same time, he praised the 90s as the last decade that really produced its own great achievements - let's think of mobile phones, the internet, to name just two of them.

Changes also took place in the social sphere, especially in lifestyle and culture, and quickly determined everyday life in the 90s, certain window dressings and advertising campaigns. With the recoding of gender roles and lean models, a different understanding of roles suddenly came to the fore: Heroin chic was born, as expressed by models like Kate Moss. Gender boundaries were given a diffuse blur, words like androgyny and metrosexuality became the focus of attention, and culture broke existing taboos with new depictions of celebrated bisexuality - and thus boundaries.

During this time CK One fell. Unisex, now a word as established as uni-colour, was then as fresh as this fragrance when first sprayed on. Yes, Calvin Klein was the first to bring the new definition of gender to flacons. So it is entirely appropriate to celebrate it as an olfactory revolution.

It was not a loud revolution, that is the concept. What seems weak today and no longer pulls anybody away from their seats, moved things quite a bit back then. And even if the sillage and durability are unfortunately rather moderate, the idea behind it was more than a fleeting fluid. CK One is pure zeitgeist. You can't blame it for its edgelessness without seeing it in the context of the time it was created. It was there precisely to throw edges overboard and to reconcile the new role identity under which both sexes could see themselves.

He did it in an impressively cool way, because it was so incomprehensibly wearable at the time. And precisely because it was so edgelessly wearable, it helped establish something that had just been created. It is therefore wrong to see this fragrance through the glasses of our time alone.

Everything else, of course, is a matter of individual taste, if you don't like the general scent character, you don't like it. Period. I like it, I find it pleasant and fresh, it is for me a very harmoniously beautiful, round scent. It is a fragrance that is easy to wear at any time, especially and primarily a pleasant summer scent. It arouses all kinds of memories. Unfortunately I lack durability and endurance, so I don't really let it consciously wander on my skin. But I would wear it and could do it at any time. It is a classic, a reminder of the spirit of the times and - associated with it - of a revolution. And not every revolution has to be loud, not every head has to roll for it.

If only it would last
I've been here for almost a year now in this super community and now for the first time I dare to write a comment on a fragrance.
CK One was one of my first fragrances, as probably many people do. Since I only had one or two fragrances at that time, the 50ml bottle was empty pretty quickly. After that I bought other perfumes from time to time and this one fell into oblivion.

Recently I got a sample of it and was happy to smell it again. So I sprayed a test strip and smelled it full of anticipation: "Wow" was my first thought. And as many people describe here, I immediately felt transported back to my youth. So beautifully fresh, citric, clean and just a fragrance to feel good in. There probably won't be many people who don't like it. Again and again I had to hold my nose to the stripes, wallowed in memories and enjoyed the beautiful smell.

Since I only use test strips to get a first impression of the fragrance, I thought, now you have to spray it on your skin. No sooner said than done. At certain intervals I smelled it over and over again to see how he was doing. But what is this?! With every sniff, the smell became weaker and weaker. After only two hours it was almost unnoticeable. For comparison I smelled the test strip again and there it was still present and clear. It's just a pity that it doesn't last that long on the skin.

So now I'm going to think about getting a bottle of CK One again. But at this price, spraying doesn't necessarily hurt either.

Memories of youth
CK One was my first great love. My first perfume, which I wore at the time, while others my age still used deodorant sprays, was an absolute ladykiller.
As far as I remember, the fragrance was not a unisex scent in the past, but was marketed as a men's perfume. That's why I still don't associate the scent as feminine.
Even today I still find this special freshness very pleasant and I still like to smell CK One.
But I wouldn't wear it anymore, because apart from the fact that I associate my youth with the perfume and now prefer more adult fragrances, CK One has (unfortunately) also been abused inflationarily.
Fragrances, like Boss Bottled or Invictus, can be smelled at every corner. Even though I can't say anything bad about the essence itself, except that it has lost a lot of performance compared to back then, you should think carefully about whether it's nice to have a silage around when 80% of the people know the scent.
Isn't it much nicer to be asked: "Wow, you smell good! What is it?"

Light in a bottle!
I had no idea that Thierry Wasser was also a part of the team that created cK One. But it shows, to be honest. The citric notes are on point: you can feel a bit of this freshness in Habit Rouge l'Eau, imo.

A lot of opinions on cK One have been made. But I'll tell you: without this, there would be no Grey Vetiver (EdT or EdP), my friends. The ever so slightly powdery, soapy, bright vibe that they have in common is remarkable. I am astonished that this resemblance is hardly ever mentioned.
A landmark of perfumery! I feel sorry for those who can't appreciate this!

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

As a marketing stand point an amazing job. As a fragrance itself it's a simple citrusy refreshing scent. Good for casual warm weather use.

Fresh and not just soapy fresh. It's ok to keep spraying it on it won't get cloying. Face of 90s as a reaction to the heavy scents of 80s

It's a naturally clean, pure, and modern perfume with a refreshingly new viewpoint. This light, relaxed scent is meant to be used profusely.
