WOW! Instantly fell in love with CK Beauty! It is everything I have every wanted and needed in a perfume! Devine, sensual and feminine! It reminds ever so slightly of J'adore by Christian Dior! (which I have and love!)!
Beauty is a true gem, a classic that will stand the test of time. I only wear at night/special occasions! I am sad it has taken me so long to find Beauty - now that I have, I am never letting go! I will always have a bottle of CK Beauty on me!
I am a mature woman, classic, and sophisticated. I found this to be most appealing. It has become my go to perfume. It does not clutter the senses. Other women love it on me, "what is that scent" though some are exasperated that it is not the same when they try it. It is perfect for this tall slender gal given to white shirts, and flowing trousers.
I started to not write this review because of my age I was afraid it would turn away younger women which would be a mistake on their part. Its simplicity makes it universal.
This scent was a little too boring for me, its just a basic jasmine scent. I will not purchase.
I love Eternity, Escape, One, Euphoria... I used all of them and they are old time favorites. Beauty reminds me cheap regular perfumes, something you would buy from The Body Shop or Zara for 20$. I can't say it is boring or smelling bad. It is just too generic and there is nothing unique about Beauty. CK disappointed me for the first time.
Let me begin by saying that shopping for fragrances is one of the hardest things for me to do since I'm not willing to put something I'm not a 100% sure about on me. This perfume is simply perfect. I don't agree with the word 'boring' being in the same sentence with this product.
I think it gives you everything the advertisement promises: it smells elegant, feminine, warm with slight flowery undertones. The scent itself develops gradually during the entire day so you don't have to spray it every hour to make it last. With 1 spray you get a hint of the smell, with 2 (which is my amount) you get normal "opacity" and if you do 3 sprays you'll make your perfume the center piece of your look.
It is a perfume you can never go wrong with no matter the time of the day or the occasion. Perhaps one thing on the downside: I find it wearable all year long except for hot summers... From certain temperature point it get too musky for me. But I guess that's the price you pay for feeling warm during winter :D... As for packaging I like it very much (heavy glass, clean, elegant).
Overall, I haven't found anything like this product and it is my everyday go-to scent. I am sure I'll be repurchasing this again (and again and again)...
Elegant soft......classic lily and jasmine perfume. It's like Calvin Klein updated eternity...also reminds me of a softer amariage. A very clear scent. Wear any time any season.
I am so sad. I loved this when I first smelled it. My husband did too, but that weird chemistry thing happened and it just does not smell good to either of us anymore. I noticed the change after I had a sinus infection. After I was well, the perfume just smelled bad to me. Ugh, so frustrating. Wish I could figure this out. I still have a lot left.
Ok my very personal thoughts on Beauty:
Wow. What can I say, I've found MY fragrance! This is me. I fell in love with it from the very first moment. It reminded me of the scent my mother used when I was growing up, so there's a little bit of her in it too, which is nice because she passed a couple of years ago.Can't imagine I'll ever gonna change perfume. *Happy*
Stunning scent! It's that time of year when I have to start thinking about getting some lighter scents as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer. I'm an oriental/spicy kinda girl, and I'm also in the UK where winter seems to drag on forever, so I definitely possess considerably more heavy-ish scents than the fresh, sparkling, summery scents. Up until about a year ago, I relied on Escada to provide me with a cheap and cheerful summer scent but then along came Taj Sunset (monstrous scent) and I was completely turned off by them. I think this also coincided with me realising I am soon to turn 30 and perhaps Escada summer scents are just not sophisticated enough for me anymore. In the winter, I wear Chanel, Lancome, Gucci, etc. and I felt it was time to acquire an equally-sophisticated summer scent. I tried Daisy by MJ about a year ago after loving the smell of it on others but I could not stand the smell of it on myself. It wasn't warm enough and I was constantly detecting a sour note that completely put me off. I eventually sold it. I then tried Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel, which actually smells very similar to Daisy with a little more warmth and less sour notes, but I just didn't gel with it. That was sold as well. And by then it was almost winter and I settled back into my comfort zone of Coco Mademoiselle, Gucci Guilty and Lancome Miracle Intense. I decided this year that I would put a little more effort into finding a good summer scent and instead of buying scents that smell good on others, I would take the time to actually test them on myself and NOT buy right away either. I also tested scents on my actual skin and not those rubbish paper strips. The outcome was that I fell in love with two summer scents - Hugo Boss Orange Sunset and Beauty by Calvin Klein. And Beauty really is that - a beauty! It seems to attract very varied reviews - people seem to find it irresistible or completely boring. I can only imagine this is largely to do with skin chemistry and the way a scent smells on different people. Beauty smells amazing on me! It's a floral, yes. But it has a spiciness, an edge that sets it apart from the average white floral scent. This isn't too light and airy, which is where I was previously going wrong. It's a floral with considerable warmth. And I can't detect any fruity notes in it, which is why I adore it - unlike so many summer scents, this smells nothing like the tacky, sweet and sickly fruity-florals that flood the shelves of every perfume store in the lead-up to summer. How I managed to reek of those cheap Escada scents years ago I have no idea! And I don't smell this much either! Unlike DKNY Be Delicious, which everyone seems to wear these days. I wouldn't say this is too far away from Daisy either. This is how I WANTED Daisy to smell on me. The notes are apparently completely different to Daisy, but to me I can almost smell Daisy when I smell Beauty, only it's a deeper, warmer Daisy with zero sour notes and a beautiful dry-down. This scent is pretty expensive but I'm glad - it'll keep all the teenagers away, especially since the CK brand has previously been associated with the younger market...think CK One, CK Be... It's nice that they've finally released such a classy scent. I genuinely think this one will become timeless.
Pricey but timeless. I know there are some "perfume snobs" out there that say this fragrance isn't sophisticated enough for them, but sophisticated to some usually means cloying or too heady to me. I like gentle floral scents, and Beauty is perfect for me in that respect. I am one of those people that get headaches from spicier perfumes, and some fragrances on me seem to fade fast. Beauty lasts all day and smells lovely. It's light enough to be worn in every setting, in the daytime and at night.
