* The name is accurate as CK One Shock is unlike anything else in their fragrance line.

* An initial blast of cucumber, red bull, and clementine will wake you up.

* Imagine a more mature version of Joop with the same amount of spunk and you get the idea of Shock..

* Peppery spices and cardamom are in the heart and last for several hours – though the fruit stays present throughout.

* Stick with the male version as the female version is a complete bore.

* A very clean patchouli is in the base but it’s the amber and musk that really stand out.

* As an aromatic oriental, this is easily wearable for anyone from teenage to middle age. So if you have a young friend who is wearing Axe, this would be a great gift.

Summary:  When I first heard about the red bull note, I was instantly excited for this frag.  On first sniff I was enamored and wearing it made me fall in love.  It reminds me of both my college workhorse (Joop) and one of my favorite Creeds (Original Santal.)  CK One Shock for men is a very good fragrance that will work for anyone.

** Question:  What was your favorite fragrance in college (or high school)?  Do you still wear it today?


One Response to Mainstream Monday – Calvin Klein CK One Shock Fragrance Review

  1. I was surprised I liked this one!

    In high school I wore aged patchouli oil and attars from Kurdish shops. I still like this stuff but prefer things in alcohol bases.

    In college, I went through a dewy floral stage and wore Chanel Gardenia and Une Fleure de Chanel. Would I ever wear these again? No way. What was I thinking?
