Sunny and juicy fruits
I have only been fortunate enough to sample this year's CK One Summer release and the previous 2009 release. In both cases, I find them to be more on the feminine side.
I'm not usually a citrusy or fruity person, however it is fragrances like this that I love. Lemon and orange really stand out as the most dominant notes to my nose, however they smell more like a sweetened and watered-down fruit drink rather than the actual fruit.
The scent has a very uplifting feel to it, what I'd describe as being bright and sunny. CK One Summer 2010 makes the perfect Summery-beach scent in my opinion.
Towards the drydown, the scent becomes increasingly soapy and fresh, which I don't mind at all. It thankfully doesn't become anything like the strong scent of a shampoo, just a softly scented bar of orange and lemon verbena soap.
The combination of patchouli, vetiver and cedar leaves a slightly masculine finish to this fragrance, however on my skin it still smells like something a woman could certainly wear.
Unfortunately CK One Summer 2010 doesn't last a particularly long time, just roughly four hours at the most. However when it comes to Summer fragrances, the lack of lasting strength and the need to re-apply often doesn't bother me. It can be incredibly refreshing, for me especially, to spritz on or re-apply a fragrance on an extremely hot day in the midst of Summer.
