Calvin Klein

CK One, 1994.

CK One

Is it for boys? Is it for girls? Is it for both?
CK One marks the emerging of a new type of perfumery: androgenous fragrances. Calvin Klein seeks almost desperately to create the perfect fragrance that fits both men and women in the same manner. Is it possible?
CK One is, perhaps, the most visible expression of a fragrance that combines floral and fruity elements with some woods and some other "heavier" elements like Amber or OakMoss.

    Though I fight and believe that women should be addressed equally to men, in all aspects of life, I cannot argue that men and women are the same; for me it is a dead-end discussion. There are some perfumes that can be seen as much male as female and, in LOVERS Portugal, we strive to erase the expressions "male fragrances" and "female fragrance". Nonetheless this is the case of a "wanna be" perfume that is popular not by the message, or the leading concept, but by the fragrance itself, which is not that good, honestly.
