Just blind bought a bottle of CK Be recently (the price was good). Upon spraying I got pretty much a pure alcohol scent at first. I thought maybe I acquired a stale bottle, but my brother (who is my identical twin by the way) didn't smell any alcohol at all and thought it smelled pretty good. I gave it a rest and tried a little bit later on. It sprays on almost like pure alcohol but dries down in a minute or two to a clean aroma that is extremely light. Even after spraying on both clothes and skin I have to put my nose right up against it in order to smell it. If it is a good bottle, it is by far the lightest fragrance I have (and I own CK Free, which is incredibly light).
Meanwhile, my brother agrees that it is a very light scent but he could still smell it standing a few feet away from me and said the room smelled of it after I had left. I found it kind of odd that someone who is my genetic duplicate would have a different sense of smell than me. Am I just anosmic to some of the main notes in the fragrance, or maybe I'm just trying too hard to smell it and fatiguing my nose in the process?
