    Without a doubt, my favorite is the original Calvin. Original formulation Obsession is a distant second.

    Eternity is the best CK fragrance...but is not listed!!!

    I voted Obsession, but for me it's a tie with the missing Eternity. They're both great frags in my opinion.

    ck be is the best to me, with eternity and obsession close behind.

    Eternity is very popular with women and has not aged one bit.

    Why does everyone seem to like the original Calvin scent? I just don't get it...

    To me it smell like a awful hybrid version of Azzaro Pour Homm.

    Stumbled across this old thread - Obsession being the clear winner.

    Wonder what the answer would be now?

    Not smelled every CK mens frag but I'd guess the answer would be the pretty good CK One Shock.

    The first and original Calvin

    CK Euphoria Gold is just such an ace fragrance for pennies so it gets my vote. Blurb/notes:

    The version for men Euphoria Gold Men Limited Edition provides an oriental-fougere composition which opens with a fresh blend of ginger and lemon. The heart is dominated by honey, cinnamon and basil, resting on a deep, warm base of amber, patchouli and vanilla.

    For me this is a huge sweet dollop of spicy amber with a slightly powdery sheen that performs admirably and feels nice and "full" without being cloying. Had this came from another house bar CK I think folks on here would've talked about it but generally this one was written off by most apart from a few noses that certainly enjoyed it.

    I would have said Eternity, but not in today's reform. I'd go with Euphoria Intense I suppose.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Voted for other, since neither Eternity nor CK One Shock were listed

    Yes, another decent one.

    It's a shame CK fragrances are slated so much now in the community. They're not all bad.
    I do agree that newer reformulations of older fragrances are quite poor (Obsession, Eternity, Escape) compared to the originals
    but many recent releases are actually pretty good for the money.

    I still wear Eternity from time to time because it was such an important fragrance while I was growing up. It's true that it's a shadow of its former self but it's still fun every once in a while.

    Tried Eternity Intense recently and liked it very much, so that would be my vote.

    I manually entered it into the directory a month ago but it still hasn't made it in.

    Have to agree with this one. Whilst it didn't wow me at first, I get positive comments from this so others obviously rate it highly.

    Well,

    I will always love CK's Obsession for Men the most. However, a few months back I smelled CK's Liquid Gold Euphoria for Men and it was very, very, nice. I could easily spray that on most days and enjoy it immensely. It is signature worthy IMO. Moreso than Obsession for Men, which is admittedly 'dated' but will someday make a vintage comeback.

    IMO, Liquid Gold Euphoria for Men is currently the best fragrance from this house by a big margin. It smells like a nose-pleasing niche fragrance.

    Vintage Eternity & Obsession. Truth is a good green scent too. Just doesn't have very good performance.

    Seems to be the problem with most of their offerings.

    CK be is a great scent but makes 4711 look like an EDP.

    I voted for CK One since Eternity wasn't listed in the poll, but I'm not sure which I prefer. Both are great, though I'm leaning toward CK One.

    I still need to try CK Be!

    This. ^^^ In the late 80's, early 90's...I liked both of these quite a bit.

    Since then, I've only owned two Calvin Klein scents....Euphoria Intense, and Eternity Aqua....both of which I like. Those 4 are the only ones I'm real familiar with, even though I've put my nose on most if not damn near all of them. CK Shock was also nice, even though I never owned a bottle.

    Yes you do! That was my vote.

    That "Escape" one smelled really nice! But I'm going to have to cast my lot for "other" as Eternity was magical.
