Way popular, sweet, can be cloying when over-sprayed and women/girls tend to do that quite more than often. Now if it could be sprayed just a tad bit, I'd find it sexy. Floral in essence, sillage is great, can be felt meters and meters around, easily noticeable just like Dior Hypnotic Poison.
Euphoria by Calvin Klein, 2005
Ordinary stuff. Very department store. Hmm...About a week later. Yes, perhaps something common about it, but something alluring as well. More complex than I first gave it credit for. Neither my husband nor I liked it initially - And both of us have changed our minds. I don't have to own it, but I like wearing it.
My wife once got a tester of Euphoria by CK and I found it really sexy on her. Normally I don't care so much about perfumes, but with this one I took note of the name and bought her a bottle for her birthday. Unlike some other perfumes, this one does not generate an overpowering scent cloud that takes over the whole room (To the female readers: one puff of a good perfume is really enough for people around you to notice. Don't overdo it). Whenever she wears it, I can't stop myself from kissing her in the neck!
The first time I tried this I wasn't too thrilled. The next time, a sales associate gave me a sample and I must say I really like this fragrance. I get a combination of berries and then the cream accord, which does not go sweet on me or get too foody. This is one fragrance that is hard to put in a category.
An incredibly sexy scent. Used to date a girl who bathed in this stuff, but all school-yard memories aside this is a potent and mysterious scent that deserves the praise it gets. Opens up with a citrus blast and then goes to work with the floral and vanilla that amp up taking this into the stratosphere with it's projection. The drydown is a smooth almost masculine presentation of woods and silky cream with a touch of amber. This stuff will LAST. This is one of the few scents that can make me weak at the knees. Depending on the weather this can get VERY cloying and the fact that it projects like a banshee can sometimes induce a headache in hot weather. Let it be known, this is a very common fragrance but the fact it smells so good easily redeems that minor gripe. If only Ck put this much effort into their Male scents.
In the too populated category of sweet florals, Euphoria smells different and more complex, thanks - I think - to a creamy note right after the beginning, and a metallic one at a more advanced stage. The dry down is sweeter in a more conventional way, but all in all Euphoria has more personality than the rest in the same category.
OMG!!!! I thought I didn't like this but I LOVE IT!! I smelled it on someone else and I thought it was revolting. I keep reading on Fragrantica how you all love it and find it sexy so I decided to give it another chance. I went to the shop today to get a card strip sample, got talking to the lady who said its her favourite so I asked if she would spray my wrist to check it was good on my skin. Its GREAT on my skin! I've been walking around in a delicious cloud all day. Euphoria, I'm sorry I was mean to you, but I will make it up to you by purchasing a large bottle as soon as I have the money.xxx
Love it! I bought this as a gift for my wife and I wanna hold her really close and not let go whenever she wears it! Incredibly sexy and sensual!
I sprayed CK Euphoria, and after hearing so many raves about it being so good and stuff like that, I was terribly underwhelmed. There IS definitely, that smoky vanilla spiciness on it, but after 10 minutes it dries down into burning plastic with a dust of vanilla. Disgusting on MY skin, it is, maybe your favorite.
This is a fragrance with a somewhat woody base that actually works well on my skin, thank goodness! The mahogany note in this perfume doesn't dominate everything else, and nothing comes across as harsh or out of place. Everything seems very nicely balanced and well blended actually, and the overall scent comes across as very pleasant. It reminds me a lot of some expensive black orchid scented candles that I own, so I suspect that the black orchid note comes out a lot on me. It also smells a lot like roses to me, even though rose is not a note that is listed here. At least one other website I found online had rose hips listed as a note in this fragrance, and I suspect they are right because I really think I can detect the rose scent. When I first spray this perfume on myself it predominantly smells like flowers (the black orchid and honestly, I think, the rose hips.) As it dries down I can also smell something that seems a little more sweet and "sugary" which may be the fruit notes but could also possibly be the cream accord in the base mixing with everything else. The scent doesn't really change a lot on me though, and it doesn't evolve into anything weird or unexpected which I find sometimes happens with perfumes that have very "juxtaposed" notes (wood, flowers and fruit especially.) This one was done very well, and smells really nice on me. I'm actually thinking I should buy a bottle of this and maybe make it my new signature scent. :) I definitely recommend this to everyone who is a fan of black orchid fragrances and anyone who likes somewhat woody-oriental-florals in general. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
