Middle School scent... I never owend. I however did not need to own it b/c everyone in school Girl or Boy over applied it after or during every period. I soon loathed the smell and still do.

CK One rather reminds me of 4711. It's a pleasant unisex citrus based scent. It's sporty and clean. Great for casual wear, something I'd wear with jeans and a t-shirt. Unoffensive, great for work.
When I first spritz this I get citrus, all the way...mandarin orange and lemon, maybe just a touch of pineapple. I don't really pick up on the floral middle notes. I don't detect the lily of the valley or rose. Beyond the citrusy top notes I go straight to the nice clean woody base notes but just a touch of citrus still hanging in there.

Overall this is a nice unoffensive scent which can be worn to work. Just apply lightly though or this can knock others out when the woody notes hit. Just a spritz or a dab will do.

I have a strange reaction to perfumes, most of them give me a raging headache so I'm not one to change it up to often. I've been wearing this since HS and then took a long break from wear any perfume. I've always received compliments when I wore this years ago and now that I started wearing it again I started getting compliments again. I'll continue to Rocking It Old School, until it's no longer available.

Like many other reviewers this scent was popular when I was in school - it was THE scent to have. Everyone I knew had a bottle or a knock off. Eventually I got tired of this because it was everywhere. It was sprayed on in the hallways, bathrooms, locker rooms...everywhere. But I picked up a bottle the other day and after I got past the nostalgia I found it really is pleasant. It isn't overly feminine as it is unisex, which I like. It is somewhat strong at first, but it has a quick dry down. For me this is a nice everyday scent. Whenever I wear this people compliment it. Glad I rediscovered this!

The opening was a stabby sort of lemon-lime, like 7-Up or Sprite turned into a fragrance. The pale-wood drydown was pleasant enough, but I don't want to fight my way past those top notes to get to it.

I've been using this for years, it's one of my main staples I have to have in my fragrance collection. I get compliments anytime I wear it!

Okay, I have read the reviews about how this brings on the 90's flashbacks, but on me, this smells amazing! I cannot do a strong perfume, and this is light and fresh. I hate floral perfumes, as well as anything that makes me smell like food, so here is where I wound up. Fits right in with my jeans and tee. If you are looking for an everyday staple, this is something I would suggest.

A great casual, unisex smell. It is something tame enough for when you just want to walk around in without any make up and in your favorite blue jeans.
I like how it's a uncomplicated clean smell, not something overly "feminine" or musky.

Two words: water and lemon juice. This is all I get from this fragrance. It used to be considered very hip when I was 15, so naturally I did wear this. Nothing to be ashamed of, as it's totally clean and inoffensive, but so is the smell of clean clothes anyway and it's much cheaper. And if I remember correctly it's unisex too, so there's nothing even remotely feminine about this.
Bottom line, you don't really need this. You can do better with practically anything.
The fragrance equivalent of a rack thin, browless, androgynous model in 1995.

Yeah, I know-- this is an over-marketed, over-played relic from the early '90s and it used to waft down high-school hallways until people choked. But now that it is less ubiquitous, I actually like it on its own merits.

CK One is a light, refreshing citrus musk with a hint of nutmeg that just makes me feel clean and relaxed. It's never overpowering and is sexy in a freshly-showered way. Great combined with patchouli or leather-based scents. It is very much in the same vein as Acqua di Parma or 4711-- meant to be used somewhat liberally, and by both genders. I love the frosted faux-industrial bottle. I reach for this one a lot during the work week because it's easy to use and hard to over-use. You can get a big 6.7 ounce bottle on eBay for $30-- don't even bother with drugstore or department store prices.
