Influenster gave me another opportunity to try out something I’ve always wanted to try. Well, actually it’s for my husband but it’s also for me 😉 A little over a month ago I was sent a questionnaire about colognes. What ones have I tried, what ones would I be interested in trying in exchange for my opinion, etc. I guess I answered the correct answers because shortly after that I was informed that I qualified for the Calvin Klein REVEAL for men Voxbox! Yay! Voxboxes come in all sizes, this one only held one sample but it was of a cologne that I have always wanted to smell. My husband has always been kind of a ‘put on whatever smells good at the time’ kinda guy while I am VERY scent orientated. ( One of the first gifts I bought for him when we first met was a bottle of Curve) I love putting on things that smell sweet and fruity (Juicy Couture is my absolute favorite) but I have a small collection of different choices if the mood hits me differently on any given day, and I do make sure I leave the house every morning smelling like one of them. It’s a ritual I suppose. For my husband, it’s always been Curve or Cool Water by Davidoff but sadly, he’s the complete opposite of me when it comes to fragrance swag. In our household I’M the cologne police when he has an important function at work that he has to dress up for and I make sure he leaves smelling just as nummy as he looks. Sometimes I can tell he just gets frustrated, rolls his eyes and walks away… but I’ll sneak in a spritz on his back while he’s walking away so I still win 🙂 He’ll thank me someday when someone compliments him.
I’m not sure exactly what it is in Curve/Cool Water that I really love to smell on a man, even if I’m out in public walking around I’ll catch a whiff of someone wearing it nearby. It’s strong and spicy but also clean smelling and exotically sweet. So, with all that said I was curious on how Calvin Klein would measure up to my favorites. I definitely wasn’t disappointed!
The package arrived with a little sample of Reveal in a pump spray bottle (never seen one so small before, so cute!) and a little leather card holder (upper right in the picture) A little extra ‘thank you’ from them for trying out their product. When I opened it I snuck a sniff and knew I was going to like it. It has all the components that makes up the scent that I LOVE. It’s like a mix of sweet and spice with a sandalwood overtone. The next day my husband had a meeting at work that he had to attend in suit and tie so I made sure he wore it. It absolutely smelled delicious on him, and it was just as yummy and fragrant after his long work day . He did say that he received a few comments (not harassingly of course) and he made sure to tell them it was Calvin Klein Reveal. As a whole, I love this and would definitely consider this as a future gift for him the next time I proudly don my scent police badge 🙂
Thank you again, Influenster for allowing me to test out another product. Doing this is so much fun!
