The people want a scent that screams individuality and originality. This is because the people cannot stand smelling the very same scent over and over again. They are naturally drawn to various fragrances; otherwise, their curiosity would not be piqued.
With the new scent from Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein Man, men do not have to worry about perfume-related problems. The scent is very nice. But even if a whole village’s worth of people wore it, it still would not give away its true identity. This makes this scent very interesting, unlike other perfumes. Basically, Calvin Klein Man fits just right into the kinds of fragrance that men truly want.
This new fantastic-smelling concoction is a combination of incense, mandarin, rosemary, spearmint, bay, cypress wood and nutmeg. Additionally, the somewhat overused notes of violet leaf, sandalwood, bergamot, amber wood, guiac wood and musk are included.
Upon first smelling Calvin Klein Man, the first fragrances introduced to the nostrils are the cypress, bergamot and a little bit of bay with tinges of violet leaf.
The nose gets bored real quickly. But after a few seconds, the fragrance turns into a freshening appeal because of the presence of spearmint and mentholated rosemary. These middle notes are best for those who live minty scents. But for those who do not, then the middle part of Calvin Klein Man is not something they would most certainly appreciate.
The minty fragrance combines with the aroma that goes with unburned incense. This minty effect is believed to be the heart of this perfume.
After the minty smell calms down, nutmeg stands out. Nutmeg somehow signals the beginning of the perfume’s coming back to being conventional. It is finished with guiac wood with sandalwood, rose, musk and amber wood.
Calvin Klein Man is actually included in the trio that enlists the three new mainstream fragrances for men for both winter and fall seasons.
However, some critics are very blatant about the tameness of Calvin Klein Man. They say that it is far too smooth for its own good when it comes to being a masculine fragrance. They also say that its aroma is too laundered or well-pressed. These only mean that the masculinity of the scent was turned into something more feminine, or something that is less masculine than Calvin Klein Man should be.
The critics try to imagine what the scent would have been if only some changes were made to the concoction. For instance, they wonder what it would smell like if the notes of rosemary and spearmint were further added, what if the guiac wood was mixed with some medicinal herbs, and what if the unburned incense which was used was burned. Simple questions, but would have changed the whole world of Calvin Klein Man.
But still, however, many love the spicy and fresh scent of this perfume. But still, it seems to be a bit on the safe side as it does not even try to cross any lines. It just stays being generic-smelling.
For some critics, the scent is weird because they think that the fragrances are not combined properly. They even wonder if the key fragrances were even supposed to be mixed at all. Moreover, some say that Calvin Klein Man is one big muddled mess with a scent that is sweet, heavy and clumpy.
They say that the top notes are like as if they do not exist. For the middle notes, there is a vague spice. Actually, being vague is all that can be said about it. And for the base notes, this perfume has some vague woods.
