Why Do People Buy And Wear Those Things? Calvin Klein Truth Perfume.

Calvin Klein Truth.

Calvin Klein Truth.

Reminds me more of a unisex Eau de Parfum.  A sweet/sour blast hits upon initial application.  It’s like walking into the forest after the winter thaw and upturning logs, discovering soggy leaves that are underneath and moldy with dirt.  It’s musty.  I realize this works for many, but just not for me.
Is it green as others have said? Most definitely.  But Calvin Klein Truth reminds me of dark moss growing on old buildings in damp dark places that haven’t been inhabited in years.  Stone buildings that are cold, damp and centuries old, overgrown with lichen.  And not in a gothic, romantic way.  More like in an asylum that has been an abandoned movie set.
The bottle is tall and thin, very unwieldy and easy to knock over, although simplistic in its design.  Drys down to a woodsy, dirty patchouli that wears for hours.
Top Notes: Vetiver, Patchouli, Bamboo, Bergamot, Lemon, Clover.
Middle Notes: Sandalwood, Peony, Lily, Mimose, Blackberry, Silkwood Blossom.
BaseNotes: Musk, Amber, Vanilla.

Quick…how many Calvin Klein perfumes can you name?  Although there are currently 30 in stock on his site, there are approximately 98 perfumes that he has created.  Truth was created in the year 2000 and is available on the secondary market.

He also is famous for his jeans, watches and jewelry.  You can see more at http://www.calvinklein.com/shop/en/ck/fragrances.
