Fresh and yet ambery warm, a unique creation at the time. Was a little overworn in the 90s. I liked it back then, wouldn't wear it today.

It's a really pleasant, inoffensive fragrance. I feel like this would smell nice on anyone. It doesn't "wow" me, but I definitely enjoy the scent. Would be a good everyday fragrance.
Classic Citrus Splash
by Rick on Feb 15, 2017
This one seemed very progressive when it was first introduced. Nice classic citrus scent. It's a very nostalgic smell now for me. I still like it just as much as I did when it was new.
good citrus scent

leans a little bit towards the cologne side for me instead of unisex, deff a classic fresh citrus smell. fairly common though so nothing special, good SAFE summer spring scent

Smells a little too much like cologne for me for it to be unisex
by Amber on Jun 10, 2016
This perfume iis very aquatic and safe. This is truly unisex also.

Nice citrus smell that stays for the whole day on my skin. Easy to use on the go for those make-up free days when you just put on jeans and a sweatshirt to be ready.
An Old School Favorite
by Nathan on May 20, 2016
It smells great. Projects great. Longevity is good. The only problem is that it was so popular when it was released that everone knows the scent and got sick of it. Because everyone knows the scent, it's not good for every day, but it's every now and then, it's a good blast from the past.
All Time Favorite

Yep, Middle school and I still don't like it. lol
by Jennifer on Dec 31, 2015
Every time I smell this, it takes me back to my middle school days when everyone wore this.
I can't really complain, but it's not for me

This seems like it would be a safe and easy to wear fragrance in the warm weather. It's unisex, but I think it may suit women a little bit better in my opinion.
NICE & NONDESCRIPT
by GRGeep on Nov 9, 2015
This is a good starter, staple cologne for guys who want to smell clean and nice without attracting attention or leaving a trail. It is very light, so it will all but leave you within a few hours, but anyone who gets close enough will love it on you.

I wore this in my late teens and early twenties. It would be interesting to see what emotions I take on if I were to wear this fragrance today. I remember at the time I wore it, it gave me an energetic boost. I would spray myself down and then head off to the gym.
Looking at the notes, I should love this still. But now I much rather prefer natural smelling ingredients, and this I remember smelling distinctly synthetic. In time, I grew sick of it, but for a few years, spraying this on gave me a mental and emotional boost that helped me conquer things physical as well.
I am going to purchase a sample for old times' sake. I do recommend this fragrance to anyone who likes clean, fresh scents or sporty fragrances, and to those who want something understated and inoffensive. If looking for the latter, just don't be as lavish with the nozzle as I used to be! Because it will project quite a bit if you keep spraying. ;)

Jasmine is the note that sticks out. It's also a note that you will grow to love with wear. Yes unisex but it leans just a bit more towards the feminine side in my opinion. Good for any age under 45 in men and any age for women..
it's okay enough...
by Moomoos on Apr 19, 2015
this one doesn't really work if you're older than 23 or so.
it's an introduction to perfume...
that said, it's still pretty good...
by Moomoos on Apr 19, 2015
this one is amazing. i prefer this to the male version. whilst it's a mainstream scent, it certainly has a cult following for a reason. nowadays, i regard it as a 'gateway' scent. a good intro for teenagers and the like...
Pleasant, but unexciting

CK One has been delivering excellent value since its introduction. A breakthrough unisex scent, it led the way in breaking down gender barriers in fragrance, especially in the citrus/aquatic segment. CK One perfectly captures Calvin Klein's unique ability to scrub off all of the rough edges of each note to produce a perfectly smooth and happy, if somewhat uninspired, experience to users.
CK One opens with a riot of citrus notes, all polished to a smooth sheen. Green notes counterweight the citrus notes to create a balance between thie sweet/tangy citrus and the drier green notes. CK one officially has a pineapple note, something very hard to do well. I ever really found this note in evidence though the smoothing of notes makes individual fruits hard to place.
The fragrance sweetens with the arrival of floral notes, especially lily-of-the-valley. This, I suspect, is a concession to the unisex branding of the fragrance, though these florals are soon overwhelmed by violet. Like the citrus, the florals too are polished to the sheen, and never cloying.
In not too much time we arrive at the base notes of the fragrance. This consists of clean notes, amber, sandalwood, and musk (but a transparent rather than a musky musk. This is clean and smooth and a little soapy. There is a light, sparkly aspect to the dry down. Even after time elapses, the woods and amber provide a fresh quality.
This is a well-made fragrance, precisely calibrated to capture its core audience of young people for whom daring fragrances offer no interest, by and large. CK One is never daring, nor does it smell anything other than synthetic, but is extremely pleasant it minds it's own business as well, sillage is very low so someone really close to you gets time sense that you smell clean, but you do not advertise that you are wearing any fragrance at all across the room. I can imagine many situations, lIke the office, where these qualities play well. But it is too polished and synthetic for my taste. It is a corporate creation rather than a work of art. I'm left wanting more than this.
can't go wrong with this one
by Stephanie on Nov 14, 2014
This is one of my everyday scents. I turn to it when I just want to smell clean and fresh, and not overpower anyone's senses. Yes, it's an oldie, but it's a goodie.
by Mario on Apr 6, 2014
a nice, clean, fresh scent. can't go wrong with this one...

My sister used this parfume in the 90´s. I smelled it again today and was thrown back. It smells nice, mostly because I get a strong reminder of the past, but a bit boring. It smells fresh in a sporty way. So, it´s not a bad scent, just kind of belongs in the past for me.
