I never tried CK One when it first came out. I wasn't overly impressed with the marketing concept of a Unisex fragrance, and it seemed geared to a young crowd. That being said, I just sampled it some ten years after its introduction and it is really lovely! Very fresh and citrusy, not overly masculine and actually quite sporty. A great pick for daytime wear, particularly weekends. I think I would actually purchase a bottle of this. I've also tried the CK One Summer (2005) Ltd Ed, and like that one even better. Who said you can't teach an old dog new scents?

WOW! I got this product as a gift for my birthday, and at first I was wary of the unisex scent, but once I put it on I absoulutley love it! I wear this scent year round and to almost every occasion. In fact, my friends now identify me with this as my signiture scent! The packaging is great and simple but elegant, and the scent is very light and young. I got the biggest bottle, so I won't be running out anytime soon, but when I do I will run to the store to repurchase!

After many years of craving this fragrance, I've recently become a bit tired of the scent of CK One - it's been my primary fragrance since 1995. Of course I've used other fragrances depending on the time of day, season, occasion I'm attending - but CK One has, and still is currently, my basic gold standard fragrance of choice. It can be worn any time of day, and for pretty much any occasion. It's clean, brisk, and a nice soft combination of citrus and musk. Until a year or 2 ago, I found this product to be intoxicatingly wonderful - I couldn't get enough of this fragrance and no other perfume or cologne came close to it's effect on me. This must be an amazing fragrance if it took about 10 years for me to get a bit tired of it. I hope I can find another perfume or cologne that has the same effect on me.

this so reminds me of my high school extra preppy days! (now i'm more sexy preppy ;) i still get a whiff of this passing young ones in the mall and i smile but not for me. i would never wear a unisex fragrance now. i'm going through a I-AM-WOMAN-AND-EVERYTHING-I-DO-WILL-REFLECT-MY-FEMININITY phase right now.

When I was a teenager I wore this just because it was supposedly 'cool' to do so. Actually, I never really cared for it very much. A little too masculine for my tastes. Now, I wear what I like and CK One, I don't.

I lost my bottle of this and just found it a few weeks ago. Through some miracle, the scent hadn't changed (or not that I was able to notice), even though I got this probably over four years ago. I'm not as crazy about it now as I once was, but I think it's because I've grown to like lighter scents since my early adolescent years. Now it smells a bit too masculine for me, but I still wear it about once a week.

*sigh* I smell this and I'm back in, say, freshman year? I'm fourteen years old and know nothing except that the boy with the locker beside me smells amazing. Or is that the girl with the locker beside his? Who knew, but Calvin Klein created something so simple the entire world went out and bought it. To this day I can't recall another fragrance driving the masses to the department stores as hurriedly as this one. And yes, everyone wore it - the kids, the teachers, the aunts and uncles, the GAP sales associate. It's simply nostalgic for me, but just like I'd never wear my flat heeled, patent leather Mary Janes with the kneehigh socks to go with my purple and white high school uniform again, I don't think I'm spraying this on me again either. But it's so cute. And I'll never turn up my nose at it.

I won a CK One fragrance splash and body lotion set in a gift basket about ten years ago. Otherwise I would never have tried it as the trendy marketing concept just didn't particularly appeal to me. The fragrance seemed a bit too masculine at first (I usually prefer floral feminine fragrances) and it seemed rather bracing like aftershave. I wasn't used to that. But after the initial citrus dried down it smelled like hay and clover and sunshine on a meadow, slightly sweet and close to the skin. Quite delightful really. I enjoyed using the body lotion especially. It's a good quality emollient lotion. I subsequently moved on to other fragrances but funnily enough I'm really in the mood for this type of herbal androgynous fragrance now, ten years later. Guess I wasn't ready for this back then. I'm considering repurchasing this but might go with Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, or possibly one of Hermes' Jardins. Prescient of CK, though, to come out with this type of scent ten years ago, and now there are so many similar ones to choose from. I like this as a simple daytime scent, something I would use after my morning shower.

This fragrance strongly reminds me of junior high as well, but not because I wore it. I don't like smelling like everyone else, and I actually wish this fragrance wasn't as popular because then I might actually wear it. I still love this fragrance though. Clean and sweet, but not in a candyish way. It's fresh sweet. I don't think this is very masculine at all. I guess upon initial application it seems to be- but within a half hour, it sweetens dramatically. It almost develops a powdery edge on me. I first smelled it on one of my girl friends in junior high, and then my college boyfriend always wore it, but he was very "metrosexual" and I thought it was a borderline fragrance (ie. not very masculine) even when he wore it. This fragrance is familiar and soothing to me. I love it. And as I mentioned, I would wear it myself if I already didn't connect the fragrance to so many other people and times. The bottle is a bit masculine, but I like it for its simplicity.

I got this as a gift and it is just not me. Too sporty. Too uni-sex, plus I got a headache from it. I long ago gave it away.

This stuff reminds me of the movie Clueless. I bought this hair product by Rusk called "Shining" and it smells just like it. Brings back middle school memories.

Fresh clean scent I love it!

I received CK One as a gift in the mid-1990s and wore it quite a bit, like the rest of the US population. I then got weary of smelling it everywhere and gave my partially-empty bottle away. This is actually a pleasant, clean fragrance when applied with a light hand, and it has decent lasting power. The problem is that the person wearing it becomes desensitized to the fragrance and tends to overapply it and reapply it throughout the day because he/she thinks that it has worn off, thus offending those around him/her. With that said, it is still an artfully-blended EDT that I hope to enjoy again someday.

It smells so fresh, and lasts! I like that it isn't overpoweringly girly (there are plenty of other fragrances for that), and so it stands out. It stands out from my other perfumes in a wonderful way.

This was my signature scent when I was in college. I always got compliments when I wore it. I purchased some recently and it still smells really good on me. The initial scent is more masculine but wears down after about a half hour on me. The drydown smells great on me; just really goes great with my body chemistry. Also lasts almost all day on me. It is not a sexy scent but is nice for day time wear.

I really like this. It takes me straight back to gr. 9! So clean. Not over-powering but definitely there.

This scent is the definition of nostalgia for me. I still love it, it smells citrusy and clean. I know many feel that this smells to msculine but after applying, I asked many my father, brother and my guy friends what they thought and they all loved it and did not think it smelled manly at all! It does depend on body chemistry of course but I feel that when it dries down it does smell beautiful. I haven't actually worn it for quite some time, but still have a bottle on my dresser. In my opinion it is better suited for those in high school and college.

This isn't something to wear on a sexy night out but it does have a certain clean and subtle sexiness to it. It doen't last to well on me so I layer this.I must say that I'm not fond of most American fragrances but CK I have always liked. For the most part His scents are unique and lasting.

I used to date a guy who wore CK1 and it drove me CRAZY (in a good way:) It was so fresh and clean and I think smells better on a man than a woman. Might have to be the right man who is masculine enough to pull it off. Ahhh, good memories!!

A lot of people did wear this in the mid 90's, I really liked it then and I still do *like* it. I first smelled it on my friend Cassie and I loved it! It smelled very fresh and pleasant w/ the slightest hint of citrus. It works well w/ my body chemistry, too. It's a nice scent for work, as others have said. I have never owned a bottle of CK One, but then again, I've just began to really explore fragrances and I'm learning what scents I LOVE. I think I will purchase a small bottle of this soon for days when I need the comforting, fun memories this scent brings to my mind(and also for the days when I just wanna smell good:)
