Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria Review
Known as one of the most seductive and sensual perfumes in the fragrance world, Euphoria by Calvin Klein has a new sister called Deep Euphoria for Fall 2016. A stand-alone fragrance with a noticeably different scent profile that still promises to be equally sexy, Calvin Klein's Deep Euphoria ($119 CAD for 100ml) is on the chopping block today.......

The Bottle:
If there is such a thing as a seductive bottle, then Deep Euphoria certainly has one. With sloping and curving contours, the bottle is tinted with a translucent plum hue. The clear acrylic cap looks like one that belongs on a sleek lipstick, adding an even more intriguing look to the bottle. Unfortunately, the cap doesn't close very securely so it might fall off during handling and traveling.

The Scent:
The ever-so-iconic Calvin Klein Euphoria is not part of my collection so I really didn't know what to expect with this new Deep Euphoria. Just from the name, though, I would have expected a deep and sensual fragrance. Interestingly, though, Deep Euphoria is a very mild scent. With three to four spritz on the wrists, I was still not able to get a good grasp of the fragrance, which rarely happens unless I'm having a very unfortunate case of stuffy nose. With that said, I'll try my best to describe what I can smell.

Top Notes: Cascalone (aquatic note), mandarin leaf, and white pepper.
Heart Notes: Black rose, geranium, peony, and jasmine.
Base Notes: Musk, patchouli, and woody notes.
Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria Review
Opening with a soft citrus top note, Deep Euphoria quickly mellows out to a soft warm floral with an earthy undertone. The scent fades very quickly but not completely, so after just a few minutes all you get is a baseline of warm floral accentuated by a noticeable whiff of patchouli. Calvin Klein describes this as a sophisticated and seductive scent and although I don't completely disagree, I just feel that the fragrance is very muted, to the point that it doesn't make any discernible impression. Unless you douse yourself in this thing, a few spritz will only be noticeable if someone is very up-close and personal. Have you tried this fragrance? I'd be very interested in your thoughts so share with me in the comments below!
