    Default The best Calvin Klein Men's fragrance is...

    So I've been revisiting a ck sampler set I bought a while ago. My conclusions: cK One is like crack. I can't get enough of it. It's especially good for hangovers and running. I like Obsession. I think I like Eternity, though I wish it were a little less sweet. Euphoria should be renamed "Generia," and the less said about ck In 2U the better. So, which is your favorite?

    And, for sh*ts & giggles, tell us what your least favorite is, and why it sucks so bad.

    EDIT: And yes, Eternity isn't listed because I screwed up and can't figure out how to change the poll - so stop bitching about it and vote other!

    Eternity wasn't listed

    I went with Obsession just because it is the tried and true and I really haven't been too in to any of the others or tried them.

    I picked 'Something Else':

    Calvin - the original from 1981.

    It is discontinued but still available on places like eBay

    Is it possible to change the poll? Or do I need to start over again?

    cK be. Not all that deep, not all that interesting: a clean, soapy, 'easy' scent with fruits and florals playing harmony to a light, close musk that blends perfectly with the skin. I really like it.

    Obsession will have a large following here. Nice enough, but too 'old' for me to wear comfortably (shock horror).

    Truth's kinda nice.. Although until I finish my mugler cologne bottles I can't justify buying it. TBH, I'm not all that impressed by Calvin Klein frags. My missus' does go crazy for the undies though... Or it could just be me

    I have to agree with several previous posters.

    You left off the best one, the original Calvin.

    How was I to know that all of you old fogies like some long-discontinued frag? Should I have included Crave as well?

    IMO, after the original Calvin, Mr. Klein was the leader of modern, mainstream men's fragrances great decline. The exception being Obsession Night for Women, which works great on a guy.

    I love CK be, it's one of my all time favorite fragrances. However, as for the "best"...I voted Obsession.

    I would have to say that ETERNITY is my all time favorite. I have been wearing a lot of TRUTH lately and enjoying that. OBSESSION is always a favorite in the cooler months when I want a change. I do like OBSESSION NIGHT quite a bit as well as ESCAPE. Original CALVIN will always be my favorite "power-fragrance".

    Default Re: The best Calvin Klein Men's fragrance is...

    1981's Calvin for Men is my all-time favorite CK scent. Obsession and CKbe are great and I like 'em. Yes, you did forget to list Eternity (I have no qualms against it...it's good). A lot of Mr' Klein's recent offerings are "just O.K.", but I think Crave is horrible.


    Just my take on it.

    As others have said, Calvin (the original) is still the best. Why was it not included?

    Obsession was and is the best from Calvin Klein. Both the women's and men's are classic and each one is a version of its counterpart. I have yet to see another fragrance solitify a master brand as this fragrance does.

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

    Default Re: The best Calvin Klein Men's fragrance is...

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

    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.
