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.

The original scent of the early 90s!
My taste in fragrance has changed since my school days but after seeing a 200ml bottle in duty free for £26, I thought this might take me back and be a nice fresh alternative fragrance for my holiday. Yes, I still like it. Clean citrus, very fresh. The lasting power on me is just not there though. Perhaps if I layer it over the body lotion, but not sure if I want to make that investment. The bottle is an all time classic, a gorg simple design based on a rum bottle! 200 ml is far too big to fit in my bag though....I may try a blag a sample size from the counter for on the go top ups!

We all used to love this in the early ninties but now it smells so generic and common. I would never wear this and today the smeel of this reminds me of Tone-Loc and swap meets mixed with cheap hair gel. The only thin I care for now is the bottle desin which is beautiful and minimal.

So CLASSIC!<3 Both my parents use this perfume/cologn. Some people might think it's freaky to have the same scent as their parents, but I don't! All of us have a huge collections of perfumes/cologns, that it wouldnt even matter if we had the same thing. Besides, I barely wear this. I think it's a good fragrance to put on after a sweaty workout or on summer days, b/c it's so fresh and citrus-y. I thought it was too masculine at first, but ever since I started wearing CK One, I've been really into men's fragrances. Men's cologn also has the sexiest, coolest looking bottles! Currently, I am looking into John Varvato's Artisan cologn! It's not too masculine, therefore I think women can wear it too. ANYWAYS, I really love CK ONE! It comes in a generous size and probably wouldnt have to purchase it for a long time

This is meant to be a unisex fragrance, but as the other reviewer pointed out, its really too sweet for men but its ok for women. Its a light, slightly sweet citrusy scent, perfect for summer wear, where you want a fresh fragrance rather than a light heavy scent.
The bottle is a bit bulky and plain IMO, but I guess thats how it can be marketed towards both sexes.
I've marked this as a possible repurchase, as I love fresh fragrances but I wouldnt purposely buy this in shops and would like a cheapo alternative

I remember being 13 and everyone had a bottle of CK One. I would always use a spritz from my friend's bottle. I forgot about this fragrance... until recently on a trip to Sephora I rediscovered CK One. I am now 25, and was searching for a light, fresh scent. I purchased a bottle of CK One and have been using it every day. I love the scent. It is not too masculine for women to wear, and not heavy or musky at all. It makes me think of fresh citrus, like a pretty summer day. Love it.

This has been advertised as a unisex fragrance, but I think it's too masculine for girls and way too sweet for men. I remember when it first came out.... Everyone scrambled to get their hands on this, and everyone has a bottle of this, but I wouldn't categorize this as a "classic" fragrance. Very nostalgic yes... but not classic. Just my 2 cents.

While in college I wasn't into smelling or dressing to girly girl, and the marketing of this fragrance caught my attention. I wore this daily back then. I guess it was before it became all the rave. I liked the non-floral clean but not soapy quality to this fragrance.
A few years ago I bumped into a guy I knew from college who remarked on my current perfume, adding "didn't you used to always wear CK One?" He almost seemed disappointed I wasn't wearing it!
It was a phase and the scent no longer appeals to me like it did. Back to my girly girl ways I guess. But, when I am in the mood for the clean fresh scent, I discovered Banana Republic's Classic which is much cheaper when purchased at the outlets.

I bought this on sale and said, what the hell? I'll give it a shot. I have mixed feelings about this perfume. It smells nice, but I always worry that people are going to say, "Girl smells like a man." Not only that, but the scent fades really fast. I notice myself reapplying, but sometimes you get so used to the smell that you just don't notice it anymore, which makes me believe that people can smell me from afar. I will not be buying this again. I've seriously only worn this perfume about 5 times and I bought it around the time that the commercials were still still airing which was a while ago.

This is the perfect daytime scent. This was one of the first fragances I ever bought. I think this is a great fragance for girls. It doesn't smell too sweet, like most fragances for girls. This fragance smells clean and fresh.
