This year, Calvin Klein takes another masculine fragrance to the shelves with ck free. Perfumer Givaudan is the nose behind this fragrance and the notes are absinthe, jackfruit, star annis, juniper berries, suede, coffee, tobacco leaf, buchu, oak, patchouli, cedar and ironwood. Don’t be surprised if you tell yourself that the scent reminds you of something. It does, actually. This is a crisp aromatic fragrance similar to other CK perfumes launched in the past. You’ll get that fresh, green, woody notes from the opening to the dry down.
Nothing is really new with this fragrance. Suffice to say, it’s a rehash of previous CK masculine colognes.
If you’re a Calvin Klein fan, you may want to road test this supposed new scent for old time’s sake.
