Calvin Klein Eternity Summer 2013
Summer can't be too far off if the Calvin Klein Summer editions are here.
Eternity Summer is as always a new scent, and this year is very different from last year. Eternity Summer 2013 is a light, soft floral that dries down to a scent that stays somewhat close to the skin . There are no dewy notes here, which to me, is a very good thing. Nor any overdose of musk, which is there but with a light hand.
Instead it's sunny wisteria tinged with a hint of bergamot in the beginning and a little of the osmanthus note . The drydown stays fairly close to the middle section with a hint of the white amber note to ground it.
It feels more spring than summer, but nice in either season for the warmer temps when you might want something that won't overpower and feels airy on.
Calvin Klein talks of it having a "seabreeze freshness" and while I don't smell the sea here I agree with the breezy part.
Full note list:
Top: seabreeze, aquatic accord, sparkling bergamot
Mid: wisteria, living cotton flower, osmanthus
Dry: musk, white amber, sandalwood
Eternity Summer eau de parfum spray is $ 58 for 3.4 oz/100ml and is available now at Macys and other department stores.
