Calvin Klein To Release CK Free Blue

CK Free BlueReleased in 2009, the original CK Free was a woody aromatic centered around suede leather, patchouli and tobacco leaf and proved to be quite popular, even gaining a nomination in the 2010 FiFi Awards. With fresh green notes, spearmint and ozone, CK Free Blue aims to be a fresh, clean and masculine take on the original.

“ckfree blue embodies masculine freshness with its clean and airy quality – perfect for the cool, modern man. a bright, atmospheric feeling emerges from the scent, as its energetic ozone heart is balanced against a backdrop of warm, pure sensuality.”

Other notes include lavender, mandarin, cardamom, nutmeg, amber, leather and musk. Expect to see this latest release in stores this November, available as a 50ml and 100ml eau de toilette.

Some Youthful Fragrance Releases

L'Homme Libre and Forbidden EuphoriaBack in April we mentioned the forthcoming launch of Diesel Fuel for Life Denim Collection, a new take on the original, aimed at a more youthful market. Well it seems young is still the hot ticket for fragrance designers as we hear news of two new youthfully inspired fragrances from Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein.

First up it’s Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Libre, the third installment in the range which started in 2006 with L’Homme and was followed in 2009 by La Nuit De L’Homme. This latest version was created to be “fresh and youthful, but masculine at the same time” and will contain notes of bergamot, pink pepper and patchouli.

Next up is new take take on an old classic, the ever popular Calvin Klein Euphoria for women. We’ve already had a few variations of this fragrance over the years, Euphoria Blossom and Euphoria Spring Temptation but this latest release, Forbidden Euphoria, is supposedly, sexier and easier to wear than the original, and is aimed at women aged 17 to 20 (or those of an older persuasion who would like to feel young again).

This fruity oriental scent will contain notes of mandarin, peach blossom, raspberry, pink peony, tiger orchid, jasmine, cashmere woods, patchouli and musk and will be available as a 30ml, 50ml and 100ml eau de parfum from September.
