CK One for him and her // £19.99 each // Fragrance Direct*
Hello there! When Fragrance Direct got in touch asking if I would like to review a perfume for you guys, I jumped at the chance and immediately plumped for a Calvin Klein perfume, specifically CK One Shock Street Edition! I spotted this in my local Debenhams a few weeks before and loved it.
The scent is described as having top notes of mandarin orange, bergamot and plum with base notes of patchouli, sandalwood and musk. Now, as a non perfume buff I have to say this is a little lost in translation with me. But immediately I know why I love this scent so much....sandalwood. It is my favourite scent EVER. I like the majority of the female population have an obsession with scented candles and if they are sandalwood candles then I will buy five!
For me this perfume is still floral but not in a sickly sweet way. I absolutely adore it! It's great for both daytime and evening as it is strong...but not overpowering....if that makes sense! I have to admit I am not the best at describing scents!
The lovely folk over at Fragrance Direct also scent me (get it) the 'for him' version of this perfume which my other half loved me for! He is a CK One addict, he has worn it for years and getting him to wear anything else is pretty much impossible. So I just about managed to convince him to try this one as it's not too much of a departure! He now wears it everyday! In fact he might just like it a bit more than the original CK One!
The packaging on both is lovely, love the floral graffiti art style! The male and female versions marry perfectly and I will definitely be repurchasing this as will my other half! Plus if you are still looking for that perfect Fathers Day present then maybe this could be perfect! I would definitely recommend heading down to your nearest perfume counter to see if you like CK One Shock: Street Edition, I think you will!
You can currently get both of these from Fragrance Direct for the bargain price of £19.99 each, ladies click here and gents click here!
What do you think of the packaging? Will you be trying this out or have you already bought it! Please do let me know in the comments! I read every single one and am so grateful for them!!
