    Default Present I received

    A family member sent me a Calivin Klien Encounter gift set for Christmas, I promised not to open it till then. I have never smelled this fragrance. So I am asking for those who have smelt this opinion's on this fragrance...

    "Meh" in my opinion. This was only on paper though.

    Ooh sneaky. It is not Xmas yet! I haven't smelled it yet but many of the Calvin Klein fragrances have been very succesful, for good reason. They are very much of their time. See what you think! I hope that you enjoy your gift.

    It starts with fresh, crispy and boozy accords and settles to a nice scent which leaves an overall impression of something soapy. It's a little synthetic, but still a lot better than most of main stream scents that I recently tried. Good longevity and moderate projection.

    I read that it has Rum notes...I LOVE the smell of Rums.
