Calvin Klein CK One EdT 200ml
Well, ck One Platinum isn't a total train wreck, but coming from a house that seems complacent with tossing out mediocre releases to pad a catalog that is literally a seven nation army of flankers, I'm not the least bit surprised. What I am surprised with however, is the fact that such a listless release would fall under the usually exemplary ck One line of fragrances. Their biggest achievement in fragrance was the cK One line, which openly and ostentatiously denounced gender barriers by being a painstaking exercise in then cutting-edge synthetic perfumery that sought to imply no sexual identity one way or the other, and the controversy which ensued is the stuff of legend.
Love or hate the olfactive gray musk cloud that is cK One, we wouldn't have a proliferation of intentionally-unisex fragrance without it. Calvin Klein has been very mindful of this fact, and have almost treated the ck One line as a golden child, with arguably the house's most creative efforts coming out under it, while the main lines received an army of chemical Frankenstein's monsters that have been entertaining at best, or embarrassing at worst, with varying degrees of commercial success.

Unfortunately, that long streak of unmitigated success in the cK One line comes to an end with ck One Platinum. What we have here, is an extremely lazy and super-fruity re-purposing of the primary accord from ck One Gold , but without anything that made ck One Gold special. The fruit over ambroxan and guaiac wood returns with ck One Platinum, but none of the richness or herbal qualities make an appearance in ck One Platinum, as if Calvin Klein wanted to try redoing ck One Gold without any of the personality, following the most minimum of modern fruity fresh requirements.
We open with grapefruit, green apple and apricot here, very sweet fruity anything-at-the-Macy's-counter in design, that dusts off with a bit of cardamom and something called "modern aldehydes". Well, at least the "Kleinisms" are still in full effect, but while you go and figure out what a modern aldehyde is, I'll keep going with this review. Pink pepper, cinnamon, and lavender are supposedly here, but all I get is the white floral core borrowed from cK All but without the dustiness or citrus, and finally a base of vetiver over cashmeran synth woods aka that ambroxan and norlimbanol dream team with a dollop of soft amber, which is the only thing making this even remotely appealing to someone looking for a unisex fragrance.

Calvin Klein CK One Gold EDT

CK One is also very fresh and clean but instead utilizes the citrus, pineapple, and green floral notes to create a light yet quite attractive aroma. It depends on your tastes but I think One is the winner.
Neither one of these scents is a monster in terms of how it projects. These are light, casual fragrances, meant to be inoffensive and universally enjoyed.
Frequently bought together
That being said, CK One is the stronger scent of the two. Be can be a very light almost skin type of fragrance. CK Be has longevity issues.
