  5. Hi again, I tried Calvin this morning. I found more to appreciate in it. I don't know why I was so down on it. That review was more than a year ago, and I have learned a lot since then. I'll revise my review once the editing option is open again. I think the scent is similar to Polo Black, both have armoise which is a type of artemesia with tarragon/herbal/spicy character. I find that armoise gives a shimmering, silvery-cool tone. For a while I like it, then my nose gets tired of it. I think that Calvin is much, much better than Polo Black but I'm still not big on either of them.
    Knize Two is a powerful scent, it has a similar character in that it is clean and somewhat cool-piercing. As I remember, that is due to violet leaves. I'm not a big fan of that tone either, but I like it once in a while.
    So it is partly a question of personal taste.
    But I do find more to appreciate in Calvin on this go-round.
    Cheers,
  6. Hi Trebornala, thanks for this note. I looked back at my review and I certainly gave it quite a negative review! I have just tried a little on and I have to admit that it smells excellent! It is night where I am so my nose is tired. I'll try it in a fair and open-minded trial tomorrow. It may be that my nose was "off" then, I was new to the field of scent so I've maybe learned. It smells completely different to me now, vs. then. Now it smells fresh, ferny, quite delightful. Still a bit powdery but it is OK.
    Hah-hah! I may have to revisit Knize Two as well, I only sort of liked it.
    Cheers, I'll get back to you in a couple of days.

    I just read your review of Calvin for Men(1981) and wonder if we were trying the same fragrance. I agree in full with the other reviews that it is a powerful, masculine, magnetic fragrance. I have worn it since its' inception and constantly get great reviews from all. I also was involved in the letter writing campaign to Unilever that brought it back for the milennium. I would be interested in your reply and also what you think of the discontinued Knize 2 (the only fragrance I have smelled that I liked better than Calvin). I hope to hear from you. I think I have a great nose, but no real training and a limited number of frags that I have sampled.
