Classico che stona
Eternity for man è un classico per eccellenza degli anni 90, che poi si è trascinato fino ai giorni nostri forte della notorietà e dei richiami pubblicitari che CK sa fare molto bene. Calvin Klein ha ottime fragranze nel suo arsenale, ma a mio parere Eternity for man non è una di quelle. Green, smoky and sinthetic notes, in cui si nota una dissonanza palese che fa storcere il naso; adatta solamente in primavera, poichè nei giorni caldi diventa pesante.
Average longevity and moderate sillage.

Let's get lost
CK/Eternity for Men smells like Bruce Weber's film about jazz legend Chet Baker "Let's Get Lost": Late, gritty 80s black and white aesthetic. Palm trees in the wind. Beach and laughter. Kisses and champagne. Washed-out jeans, white T-shirt, black leather jacket. Retro 50s in 80s design. An "American" fragrance in the best sense of the word

What happened to this guy?!?
It was fantastic in the 90’s (when it had no sprayer), with an epic projection radius and fantastic sillage. This current version seems “watered down with alcohol” and isn’t even a shadow of its former self. I remember wearing this with pride, but the newer version doesn’t quite feel the same. It has the scent of the original, it’s just WAY softer and weaker. The new version barely reaches a 2ft radius for MAYBE an hour; and the sillage trail is faint at best.

It’s one of those “nostalgic memories” that isn’t quite as good as you remembered. Like going back home after 10 years and excitedly ordering that awesome local hamburger, and being utterly disappointed in the sandwich you get.

I loved it back then, but the new product doesn’t do it like it used to, and I’m almost heartbroken.

Terrible
Desperately bad on every level. Basically a musky citrus-lavender fragrance smelling like a fizzy warm burp after drinking cheap Limoncello. Deadly everlasting persistence. Gross and discomforting.

90's feelings
It's a well blended composition of lavender, some florals and some woods basically.

A must try for everyone that likes fragrances. But looks like it had been reformulated lately, which turned in to a very weak version if compared to the 90's version.

Opens with a lot of lavender and some citrus, then joins the green/herbal notes in the middle.

Dries down to a light woody base.

I Can't Believe This Turkey Was Made By The Same Creator Of Original Polo...
One of my least favorite scents. This was ridiculously popular when I was in my teens (I am showing my age a bit here) and I did not like it back then even though I, like everyone else had a bottle (gotten as a gift). Now many, many years later I still find myself cringing at even the thought of smelling this scent again as it was so loud, popular and over applied by most everyone I came in contact with. There certainly are worse scents out there to be sure, but this one just has horrible memories for me associated with it, so I give it an easy "avoid" recommendation. Polo Green was my other staple back then and I still like that one. 1 out of 5 stars for this turkey.

Great memories
It was very difficult for me to smell this fragrance again. Eternity was once a scent that made me comfortable, happy, dizzy and head over heels in love. However, smelling this fragrance now only makes me sad and nostalgic.

My first love wore Eternity every day. For almost four years and most of my teenage years, Eternity was more than just a cologne.

This cologne is citrusy, fresh, clean and masculine. It's not outright sexy, it's more of a subtle sexy scent. A man that wears Eternity is a man that is kind and someone you can trust.

The blend of citruses with the herbs and flowers are beautiful and comforting. I could spend hours just cuddling up to a man wearing this scent without getting a headache or feeling nauseous.

Many men may be discouraged from buying this because it's so popular, yet I don't think it's popularity should deter them. I don't know of any woman that dislikes this cologne, so it is guaranteed to please.

It's a shame that this fragrance has too many memories connected to it. I would love to be able to enjoy this scent for what it is and not be reminded of the past. But I guess that's the beauty of scent recognition.

Fresh but seductive with Geranium and amber. I loved it in high school in 90s, it was a step from fresh CKOne and ADG but not too mature.

Not bad per se, but excruciatingly bland and boring.
