Calvin Klein Summer 2016 CK One Summer Eau de Toilette: Review

Disclaimer: The product featured was provided for review.
Each year, Calvin Klein releases a limited edition update of its beloved unisex fragrance CK One Summer ($74 CAD for 100ml). For most of the previous editions, the fragrance teeters between a citrus blast and a cocktail mix but the 2016 version is definitely one-of-a-kind, balancing between more of a fresh citrus and a feminine floral.

CK One Summer 2016 Eau de Toilette
The 2016 CK One Summer comes in the classic flask-shaped glass bottle. This year, though, the bottle is tinted green, featuring blue embossings of palm leaves. The backside of the galss is even pressed with a palm leaf design. The bottle seriously screams summer; it's fun and colorful without being over-the-top.

The Scent:
Top Notes: Lime, mojito, ginger, apple, and lemon.
Heart Notes: Guava, tiare flower, and juniper.
Base Notes: Cedarwood, coconut milk, moss.

Opening with a refreshing splash of lime and ginger, CK One Summer mellows into a slightly more citrus floral that's a lot softer and more feminine compared to the past CK One Summer editions. Despite the mojito notes, this fragrance is not your typical cocktail blend. There's a surprising touch of warmth and sweetness from the cedar, moss, and coconut milk, making this a rather well-rounded summer scent. The wear is unfortunately not great, the smell fades within hours and the sillage is weak.

Calvin Klein Fragrance is available in stores at The Bay, Shoppers, London Drugs, and Sears.
