Calvin Klein 'Encounter' Eau de Toilette Spray
Just got a sample of this with my Tom Ford Noir purchase, and I gotta say its the best thing CK has made since One. Love this stuff. Its not too powdery smelling, not too woodsy, not too citrusy....its just right. I spray my sheets in the morning with it so my bed smells awesome at night! Is that weird?
I love this it smells fresh light
I have asthma and this does not bother me.
Nice, but Nothing Special...A Little Boring
Calvin Klein's new offering, Encounter is a nice fragrance but nothing like their older, more creative fragrances such as Obsession and Eternity. Encounter is a very marine fragrance with just a little woodiness to give it a little bit of warmth; and I do mean a little. The marine note stays throughout the fragrance from beginning to end. You can definitely smell a family resemblance, there is the Calvin Klein DNA in this one as well.
This is an average fragrance and has done it's job in trying to please everyone, trying to play to the whole range of demographic instead of producing something extraordinary or creative. It is better, warmer and a little more pleasing than Free by the same brand.
This fragrance is very wearable year round and is very much a "wear into the office" cologne; very inoffensive yet, boring.
I ordered this after "sniffing" a sample in Detail Magazine - it's even better than the sample. I love the way it dries down and the scent is long lasting.
