Hiya. It's time to test another totally mainstream fragrance. CK One Summer 2019 by ... well, by CK just! :D
I'm testing CK's summer scents more by chance if I should think about it (I missed it in 2017, for example). This time, however, I was quickly attracted to this fragrance when I saw it standing on the shelf. Yeah, check out the bottle. The way Summer says it, he totally reminds me of comics, doesn't he? Yeah, it looks like you're reading a Batman comic, for example, and the masked avenger is beating up some opponents, and that's Zack! Noise! Bäm! are to be read as visualized sound effects, which, by the way, also existed in the funny Batman series of the 60s (you know, this series with Batmaaaaan. Batmaaaaan. Batmaaaaaan. Batmaaaaan. Batman. ... Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, Batmannnnnnn!.. uh, you must know the song of the show!! :D).
As I said, I found the bottle interesting, so my curiosity was aroused. But I would have tried the fragrance one way or the other, because I think that the CK Summer fragrances are never something special, but they don't necessarily smell bad either, on the contrary, I even think that you could use such a fragrance with a good offer even a summer!
The fragrance begins fresh with fruity-sweet scents. Yes, there is something about maritime notes in the top note, but I find that they only really take effect after a little while, and the fragrance therefore smells more fresh and fruity at the beginning. I'm sensing a berry-like note, which is nice. Soon, however, this berry mixes to a rather general fruity note, i.e. rather with indeterminable fruits, where one simply knows that it is fruity without being able to name exactly one fruit. The Matcha tea, which smells a little bit like tea, a little bit like green notes and a little bit like diluted scents, is also quite nice and refreshing, but also a bit weak. By the way, this time the sweetness of the fragrance is rather low. Apart from the top note, the fragrance later only smells maritime, i.e. aquatic with salty notes on a slightly woody background and sometimes looks like a nice, fresh shower gel.
I must also mention the synthetic notes, without which these fragrances would certainly come across much more beautifully, but which here at this fragrance series have never really disturbed me. I also had the feeling that the synthetics of this fragrance were a little less than those of some other CK summer fragrances.
And so the fragrance remains, mainly fresh-salty-aquatic and a little woody at the end.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is mediocre, but due to the maritime notes it is slightly better than the scents of the last years of this series. Nearby, it should be reasonably odorable for a while. For a summer fragrance, the shelf life is quite good with over six to seven hours.
The bottle has the same shape as all CK One fragrances. So it is rounded, rectangular, flat and looks like a small bottle. It is transparent and clear and has this comic-like label printed on the front with the name of the fragrance on it. This looks nice and interesting, but I found the older flacons with the beautiful color gradients much better, because they also fit the theme (holiday/summer fragrance) better.
Soo, the new CK One Summer 2019 is pretty good for a CK One Summer fragrance, for me it's even one of the best CK One's I've tested lately. It is noticeable that there is a certain kind of sweetness this time, namely this sweetish note, which often came across me like an ice cream waffle, which is tasty, but also quite synthetically scented. Also this fragrance is synthetic, but smells different again and brings a little variety to the CK One Summer series, which often came with lime and cucumber.
Because this one here smells like the sea this time, because it has a salty aura and could please everyone who likes this salty scent. Even if the salty note is not free of synthetic, it smells nice and reminds of the humid and salty air near a holiday resort, where you can't wait to run to the beach and... go into the water of course (yes, yes, i know for a fact that you all expected me to write something like "Watch hot bathing beauties in sexy bikinis" now, tsss... I should really think about my reputation here... it's shocking what you think about me... *sigh* ... hey ..:D And I can't help it if bathing beauties look so great, aaaargh! D
Hmm... I don't think I need to mention that CK One Summer 2019 is a... summer scent? :DD
Anyway, it's especially good during the day, especially on hot days, but be careful not to buy it blind, because salty notes are not everyone's cup of tea, because they can sometimes come across quite stuffy. Just give it a try, especially on a hot day, to see how you like this fragrance. I wouldn't spend 40 Euro on it now, but I also think that you couldn't do much wrong with such a fragrance for a summer, especially with a good offer!
Well, that's it again, and I wish you all a nice evening :)
