We may only be a few weeks into Spring but the sun is shining this morning, so the new CK One Summer 2021 fragrance is all we can think about.
It’s April 12th, all of our stores have reopened this morning in England and Wales, and life is feeling deliciously hopeful again. We’re never ones to rush through the seasons but the sunshine has us daydreaming of the warm heat and sea breeze of tropical summer holidays once again.
While we don’t know when we’ll have our next getaway, we do know Calvin Klein gives us a summer to remember every single year – and 2021 is no different. The legendary brand first launched CK One Summer in 2004 to celebrate a decade of its game-changing unisex fragrance CK One. Unlike the original, CK One Summer has been reimagined every single year to give each summer its own distinct, unforgettable scent.
Now in its 18th iteration, the new CK One Summer 2021 has arrived. What vibe is it capturing this time around? Is there still something new? Will it make us feel fresh AF?
In short: CK One Summer 2021 is a tropical dream. The bright blue and light green hues of the bottle are representative of its beach-y essence and long-lasting, cool freshness.
The new CK One Summer is an aquatic-citrus scent featuring a delicious mix of fruity notes from top to base. Top notes of Meyer Lemon and Grapefruit are paired with a fresh water accord, making it sparkle like rays on ocean water.
Base notes of Blond Woods and Ambrox are sweetened by Peach Skin, which soaks up the fruity, natural heart of Watermelon, Rhubarb and Eucalyptus. The woodiness underlining this ultra-fresh summer scent helps it linger, saving it from being an Eau De Toilette that gives a quick burst of freshness only to dry up quickly.
The new CK One Summer 2021 is the kind of fragrance that makes us wish there was another word for fresh because it cannot be overstated. This is fresh, fresh, fresh. With this summer being another where getting to a beach abroad seems unlikely, this unisex fragrance can take us all there every day and uplift us with its gorgeous and breezy scent.
If you’re looking to compare unisex fragrances of the summer, the new Tom Ford Costa Azzurra Eau De Parfum has a similar Mediterranean essence of aquatic notes but is a woody hybrid where this is citrus.
