    Default why the hate on Calvin Klein Euphoria

    So I have read so many bad reviews about Calvin Klein Euphoria men, this was after I purchased it. I was getting kinda of mad that I had spent 60 bucks for a bad fragrance. However, on me, it last all day, and projects up to a foot or two away.

    Why so much hate for it?

    I personally just don't like how it smells. Not hate, just my experience.

    There's a lot of hate out there for the brand Calvin Klein. Just don't pay $60 for it again when it's out there for $25.

    Exactly the way I feel.

    Never was a fan of the scent.

    Don't worry about it - if it works for you just wear it with confidence.

    Because it is bland and has poor longevity.

    I think I smelled this once, but it obviously didn't make much of an impression. That being said, never feel bad about the scents you like. Next time, though, shop at TJ Maxx or Marshalls and you might find it for less!

    I like the intense version way better. I think it's one of the most underrated designer scents out there. I'm not with you on the original but if it works for you, then that's all that matters.

    It gives me a terrible headache whenever I used to wear it. There is some weird metallic chemical in it that I just cannot tolerate. I ended up giving my bottle away.

    It's only the longevity of the original that lets it down. The intense version corrects this and is a very pleasant scent

    I don't think Calvin Klein care about their fragrances any more. They come out with more than 2 a year and they are just way too mainstream for me...
    I thought "Man" was pretty good but that's about it.
    They had one really good scent contradiction
    But i think it's been discontinued.

    IMO, anyone who makes the "hate" claim should have to provide at least three examples of clearly hateful remarks about the scent in question, and those should be from long-standing members (not people who joined a month ago and have 2 posts to their name). Otherwise, i'd like to see the mods delete the posts so that we don't witness yet another thread with a whole bunch of nasty comments going back and forth.

    No hate from me, really. I just find it to be unremarkable and extremely short lived on my skin.

    But hey, if it works for you then go for it. To each his own.

    I thought this as well, but Shock was a great release and BIG surprise IMO.(dark obsession was pretty good too) But I've heard CK has went backwards with Encounter:/

    Amen

    No hate here and haven't smelled Euprhoria but quality wise I would currently put CK fragrances on par with Guess, Nautica, and Liz Clairborne. I know Obssession, Eternity, and CKOne had their place, but like many designers CK are able to rest on their laurels at this point and not create innovative and/or quality fragrances. CK Free, CK Man and CK Encounter are one's I've sampled recently and it's just an uninspired house at this point IMO. Regardless, because of the name and branding they'll still sell plenty of product.
