What: A light, fresh Calvin Klein fragrance: CKIN2U.
Why: Although the moniker emphasizing hip, cool, text-messaging-ness turned us off (and the folks over at Valleywag as well), the salesperson at Macyâ€™s attacked us yesterday, brandishing the happy little scent card and a bright, perky smile.
“Do you want to try a new scent?” she asked, handing out one from her stack. Startled, we did what we usually do when people thrust things at us -â€“ we take them. Since she kept watching, we took a tentative sniff and had to admit it wasnâ€™t bad. Actually, we rather liked it, which means despite their lousy marketing message, the folks over CK got the new Calvin Klein CKIN2U Eau de Toilette just right.
The scent is designed to get your attention right away with a wild combination of sugar orchids, red cedar, vanilla and a host of other competing scents, like bergamot, grapefruit fizz and red currant leaves. While it might not leave you as breathless as the marketing people hope, it still catches your nose in a good way. I would definitely recommend it for those who like fruity or citrus florals.
