CK2 BY CALVIN KLEIN
Released in 1994, Calvin Klein’s CK One is a true classic. It was one of the most popular fragrances of the ’90s and it remains a favorite scent for men to this day. But this is a new year and this year, you have me to guide you out of the sameness that every man that hasn’t found this article is almost certain to face. You don’t have to get rid of CK One. Feel free to keep that one in your fragrance wardrobe for those times you feel like reminiscing on the past. Those days, however, should be few and far between. For now, try Calvin Klein’s 2016 release: The gender-free scent CK2. The fruity, fresh citrus smell of the classic remains but this time, the woodiness is amped up to create an even sexier masculine accord. The opening of wasabi, orange, and violet really kicks things up a notch. CK2 then transitions into an olfactive mix of wet cobblestone, orrisroot, and rose before awakening with woody notes, a light incense, and a powerful vetiver note -creating a fragrance that is bound to become a new classic for Calvin Klein.
Boys to men. When it comes to perfumes, there is a common sentiment that real men go for colognes while boys cling on to eau de toilettes. What separates between the two, in brief, is that colognes are more concentrated and, thus, last way longer. If you are a rookie in the world of colognes, try the new Colonia Intensa Acqua di Parma. This Italian choice is unexpectedly rich and, despite its citrusy opening note, it has an intriguingly masculine smell that wonderfully develops over time and lasts for quite a while. Yes, it is priced rather steeply compared to most eau de toilettes; however, once you go with colognes, it is rather unlikely that you’ll go back to what the boys use. Acqua di Parma is available at Glow Living Beauty, Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta.
