Calvin Klein Euphoria

21 Feb

If I were to rename this fragrance, I would call it Powder Bomb. Euphoria by CK opens with a berry-scented powder which seems to be the impressionistic representation of pomegranate in a lot of fragrances, only this is berry powder + sugar.

The sweetness in Euphoria reminds me of the hard white candy stick used for dipping into flavored powders in a candy called Fun Dip. I attribute the short lived freshness to the lotus note, though I don’t detect a true pomegranate or lotus coming through at any point.

This fragrance is extremely linear and two-dimensional. If you already own and enjoy anything remotely similar, it is definitely not worth owning this in addition.

As Euphoria continues to open on the skin, it is quite sweet, but instead of going in the direction of gourmand, it keeps tangy synthetic fruits and CGI florals hovering just above the rolling cloud of POWDER and warm musk.

It seems to me like the scent of Spring in a CGI garden. Get ready for your avatar to have the botanical stroll of a lifetime, or at least, one fine morning.

Euphoria is inoffensive and unremarkable, It doesn’t smell at all natural, but it also doesn’t seat me downwind from the exhaust vent at a plastic factory, so lackluster as it is, it succeeds in that it is not an abomination.

In the dry down, the florals disappear altogether and I am left with a slightly fruity VERY powdery musk, reminiscent of a cube-shaped strawberry flavored marshmallow.

Euphoria is a pretty (not gorgeous), successful and girly type of woman, just going through the motions in Second Life. She may have awesome hair, a sweet house and makes good money, but she doesn’t breathe air.
