    Exclamation New Fragrance: CK One Red

    Just saw this on Fragrantica.
    http://www.fragrantica.com/news/Calv...tion-4882.html

    New variants of the CK One fragrance from Calvin Klein, which leads amongst urban youth fragrances for over ten years now, are called CK One Red Edition. CK One Red Edition for Her and CK One Red Edition for Him are available from January of 2014.



    CK One Red Edition for Him begins with pear and aldehydes. Its heart of suede, black pepper and ginger is laid on the base of vetiver, tonka bean and musk.

    The fragrances are available in bottles of 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

    Notes seem interesting.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    I thought the whole point of One is that it was unisex. Why are they now bringing out flankers for both genders?

    Thanks for the info but I'll give this one a pass.

    Will sample this one when released. More than likely, Macys will have it.

    The notes do sound interesting and I love CK Shock.....but with those notes it also sounds similair to a couple I already have.(Obsession Night and Christian Audgier for him) But will definitely try it when I come across it!

    What I liked about the original was it's screeching linearity.

    If they pull off that same compositional trick with the notes cited, then it might be worth a whiff, but the pear better be subtle & not too fruity.

    If this just turns out to be an oriental version of One... meh.

    I guess it worked with the "Shock" flankers. Clearly nothing is sacred in the art and science of selling juice!!!

    LOL! Soooo true!

    "Disposable" fragrances. It seems that CK's new business model is to keep some old classics as stakes in the ground, a few new ones like the Euphoria franchise that seem to sell well, and then pound everything with ephemeral flankers to fluff them up.

    I will bet that you're totally right about that. I'll bet CK got wind of Polo Red during development and decided to jump the "red" bandwagon.

    Has anybody heard how Polo Red is doing? Clearly it's not very popular here (I love it, and it seems I'm the only one).

    They were going in the right direction with shock because it was quite a bit darker than most of their fragrances. Since then they just put out fresh, fresh/sweet, fresh/spicy fragrances. At least a full on gourmand would be something worth trying. This crap isn't even worth wasting a test strip on.

    I was surprised by Shock. They really threw us a bone with that one!

    They had me with the opening but stopped me at the "black pepper."

    Yuck.

    I wil give it a try for curiosity's sake but I don't expect much out of it. In my book, I warranty everybody and everything the benefit of the doubt.

    Maybe fragrance snobbery, but believe me, I seriously tried liking recent releases to no avail: during my last trip overseas I spent two hours analyzing all recent releases and I did not find a single one to my liking.

    I'd rather stick to most reformulated versions of classics. Some I think are worth discontinuing.

    Tried the men's today. Very summery, and nothing "red" about it. Not getting any pepper, vetiver, or suede as per the note list, just a generic floral musk. Smells like something I've smelled before, but can't put my finger on it. Don't get your hopes up, this ones totally unoriginal.

    I do like the new Red. It has nothing common with Shock edition and closer to the regular one. It smells like a modern version of Azzaro Chrome: take the base of Chrome and add fruity notes with some sourness. The result is attractive for those who appreciate this type of scents.

    After testing at my local drugstore, it has the same linearity & composition as the original, but with a fruity pear/ginger accord, instead of the original dry jasmine.

    Too fruity unfortunately IMHO. This fruitiness leads to the fact that ironically, they should have marketed this one as unisex.

    The main accord is aldehydic; what does this smell like??

    Aldehydes have less of a smell, but more of a fuzzy/sparkling musk effect.
