I love being a blogger for many reasons, most especially meeting new people, making new friends and enjoying new experiences. Another fun “perk” to being a blogger are the wonderful surprises that show up at my door.
Last week I received a package containing two bottles of Calvin Klein ETERNITY – one perfume for women and one cologne for men. I have heard of ETERNITY before, and I have seen commercials for the scent, but I have never actually smelled it before. I was excited to give it a try (the perfume) and have my husband try out the cologne.
These were more than just bottles of fragrances – these were special Anniversary Edition bottles of ETERNITY to celebrate the scent’s 25th Anniversary. It’s hard to tell from the above photo (one I shared on Instagram a week ago @SheScribes). The bottles are silver and almost look like mirrors. They are really pretty to look at.
The shape of the bottles are similar to the current shapes available, with the exception of the lovely silver-like look to them.
I can’t believe this intoxicating fragrance has been around for 25 years and this is the first time I am smelling it.
I really like the scent. I thought it would be strong and bold, but it’s not. It’s actually very “light” with a crisp, subtle scent to it. It’s strong when you first spray it on but then the scent becomes lighter and changes it’s “tones” and the scent is slightly different then when it’s first applied.
The women’s perfume has a sweet, floral-like scent to it. It’s a romantic scent.
You could easily wear this year round but in my opinion it seems best suited for the carefree days of Spring and Summer due to the light and airiness of the scent.
The same applies for the men’s cologne. It’s also light and airy, but it does have a touch of masculinity to it. It’s the ideal “every day” type of cologne. It it’s great for the office, running errands, doing projects around the house or hanging out with the guys.
I also think it smells sexy on my husband.
The scent works well with teenage boys too. My 14 1/2 year old has worn it a few times. The last thing he needs is an overpowering scent when he goes to school. ETERNITY for men provides him with just enough scent to smell good without overpowering him. I’m curious to know what the girls think of it? He won’t dare tell us that (he’s very shy).
Look for Calvin Klein’s ETERNITY 25th Annivesary Edition Bottles where ever fine perfumes and colognes are sold.
In addition, Calvin Klein has also launched the ENTERNITY Project – a new global philanthropic initiative.
The ETERNITY Project was created to foster the message of eternal love and commitment through the support of various charitable endeavors to help better individuals and communities.
The ETERNITY Project has currently teamed up with Every Mother Counts (EMC), a charity founded by the face of ETERNITY, Christy Turlington Burns, to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
As part of their partnership, until May 31st, all proceeds from the U.S. sales of these limited edition ETERNITY 25th Anniversary bottles will go towards Every Mother Counts – up to $30,000. I only wish I knew about this sooner so that I could have mentioned it to my readers. There are still a few days left.
If you are looking for a belated Mother’s Day gift, or a Father’s Day gift, these special ETERNITY bottles would make for a wonderful gift. The perfume or cologne would also make for a great Graduation gift – or even a “just because” gift for yourself. Knowing that the purchase will go towards a worthwhile charity makes it even better.
