ETERNITY summer 2010
Eternity by Calvin Klein has gone through many different versions since the original was introduced in 1998. The original is a blend of spice, flowers and exotic fruits, combined with patchouli and amber.
But Summer is the time to lighten up. Calvin Klein ETERNITY Summer 2010 re-imagines the spicy scent as a light, watery floral that still has that signature hint of spice and “spunk.”
ETERNITY Summer opens with tangy notes of grapefruit, ginger and passion flower, but the floral, mid notes are almost immediately apparent: a beautiful bouquet of water florals with pink peony, freesia and muguet. Nicely blended into this light blend are a subtle mix of musks, white amber and driftwood. Eventually, the scent becomes more fruity floral again, but it has staying power, handled with a light touch. It’s pleasing, luxurious, and perfect for daytime. For women who like their scent to stick around but want to effect to be subtle, this new, limited edition, will be a perfect, warm weather fragrance choice.
The ETERNITY Summer signature flacon with “T” shaped all-in-one top and spray diffuser, feel substantial and nice in your hand. The outer packaging has been re-imagined for Summer with a backdrop featuring a scene of pink and lavender ocean waves, lightly enveloping the sand. The soft pink and lavender color palette is supposed to mimic the light at sunrise. The same display, on the bottle, makes for a pretty display on your dressing table.
This is the time to get your limited edition, which just launched in March 2010. It makes a lovely Mother’s Day gift, or a nice choice for a bridal fragrance. The Eau de parfum spray 3.4 fl oz/100ml is $54..00 and you can find it at fine fragrance counters, or for more information visit http://www.calvinkleinfragrances.com/
