Ode to femininity
If violet were a fragrance... here the color of the bottle and the fragrance fit together incredibly well. It smells feminine-soft, fresh and a little floral, but not too much. The green notes and the woods catch it very well.

A fragrance that is calming and aphrodisiac at the same time. It has something mysterious and mystical. Garnished by a pinch of melancholy.

I wear the fragrance when I want to express an extra dose of self-confidence and individuality. And yet a creative, sensitive and intuitive aura clings to him.

A shame that he is no longer produced or at least in D is no longer available.

Almost, Eternity Purple... almost!
There's something about Calvin Klein fragrances that have never agreed with me. There's an alcoholic quality that seems to singe my nose hairs a bit, no matter how pleasing the notes accompanying the mixture tend to be. On the bright side, this is an upbeat almost citrusy, fresh smelling floral. When I go in to smell it, I think, "Well, that's not so bad!" And then comes the aforementioned alcoholic 'aftersmell' that dries the back of my throat, and gives it a soapy masculine bite that just doesn't agree with me.

Not A Flanker
A purple darling and a wonderful flanker that actually smells very little like the original Eternity - which is a good thing since having the same perfume re-created over and over again is a bit pointless.

When applied it bursts out in green notes and lots of florals, not in an overly floral way but in a warm, sensual way. I guess its due to the woodsy and musk note that almost immediately join the "purple" bouquet of flowers that unfolds.

Halfway before the dry-down I smell something light and breezy (water lily?) and a hint of fruit that compliments this elegant, and fresh fragrance very well.

A sensual and somewhat heavier formulation than the original Eternity. More suitable for evening wear. Elegant and sexy in a sophisticated way.

Silage is: "elegant warm florals are all around me" - Longevity is great: 7+ hours of purple flower haze. If you can still find it try it. It's an Eternity reminiscent scent with a darker, warmer and sexier twist.

Extraordinary fragrance which should have stuck around
Eternity Purple Orchid is really nothing like the original Eternity. This flanker is not so clean and flowery, in some ways it seems darker and more unique.

I was initially struck by how sweet and plummy the scent was. It was somehow rich and dramatic, yet light and airy at times. I enjoyed it because it had this interesting sensual and fruity soapiness, which was rather difficult to describe.

The fruit notes, like the peach and plum are quite candied and jam-like, so when blended with the soft, soapy floral accords, Eternity Purple Orchid smells like a watered-down, flowery gourmand. If that is even possible. I guess the almond and vanilla notes towards the drydown further my opinion.

Despite being a confusing fragrance to my nose, it was one that I quite liked. For the first few hours I couldn't stop smelling it. At times it can be a little chemical smelling and bland, but when compared to other Eternity flankers, this fragrance fares quite well.

The packaging itself, with its eye-catching purple bottle, is quite alluring. It's hard to walk past such an interesting looking fragrance. I think in a weird kind of a way, Eternity Purple Orchid, while not an orchid based scent, is very 'purple' in its approach. What I'm trying to say is that the colour suits the scent's personality.

Unfortunately the longevity is not all that impressive. I would have liked the fragrance to last just that little bit longer. But all in all, I'm happy to have found this fragrance before it disappears altogether as it was an experience in itself.
