I’m Holding on to Calvin Klein Beauty Eau de Parfum

Published in: Fragrance

This is probably gonna sound strange (what else is new?), but I like to just hold this bottle of Calvin Klein’s new Beauty ($65 for a 1.7-oz. spray) in my hands while I go about my day. It’s oddly comforting, in a gigantic glass talisman or Magic 8 Ball sort of way.

Beauty’s a warm, spicy floral with notes of lily, jasmine, ambrette (a musky plant from India) and cedar. I think the lily gives it a crisp, invigorating edge that keeps the spicier cedar and musk from taking the scent straight to the boudoir.

It’s a scent I’d wear to work in an office — girly yet professional — and because it’s a full-fledged eau de parfum, it also lingers like a good fragrance should. Available now at Sephora stores and online.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Goodness, you make me laugh. Straight to the boudoir? No, I guess not…. darn hint of lily. :)

    Calvin Klein always reminds me of a friend of mine who wore Escape. He was walking down the stairs and passed another guy friend who stopped in his tracks, whipped around and said “Man, what are you wearing? You smell like a little slice of heaven! Can I borrow some?”. Boys. :)
