What is the Obsession with Calvin Klein? While the perfume of the same name is known worldwide and consumers have raved about its sensual scent and aromatic fragrance, Calvin Klein first began his illustrious career designing the now famous Calvin Klein Jeans.
Just as Vera Wang studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and made her home in New York City, so too Calvin Klein began as a self-taught artist whose sketches and sewing abilities led him to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. By 1968, this inspiring designer started a women’s sportswear line which eventually led to a revolutionary style of clothing that is known throughout the world today.
In 1982, the now famous Calvin Klein Underwear was born and from this point on there was no stopping this ingenius designer. He embarked on his Calvin Klein Perfume for both men and women which, by the way, is the first time any designer has accomplished this feat.
Perfumes such as Obsession, Eternity, Ck One, Escape, and Contradiction are some of the most popular perfumes available today. According to his biography which is available on askmen.com, “Klein has received many accolades for his work and contribution to fashion: he won the Coty Award in 1973, 1974 and 1975 (making him the youngest designer to win these awards), and was awarded the Council of Fashion Designers of America Award for design in women and menswear in 1982, 1983, and 1986 (making history as the first designer to receive both awards in the same year), as well as the CDFA in 1993 for both women and menswear, and the America’s Best Designer of 1993 Award.”
A designer for celebrities as well, Calvin Klein has been touted as an icon in the fashion industry in addition to his more infamous fragrances. Euphoria, another Calvin Klein Perfume, was introduced in 2005 and has become quite an enticing scent for women. The perfume has a fragrance with components such as pomegranate, persimmon, lotus blossom, and black orchid, as well as amber, violet, cream, and woods. It also won the Fifi award for the best in luxury fragrances.
Along with his sensual and suggestive names for his perfume line, Calvin Klein pulls no punches in his clothing line either. Known as a marketing genius, he pushes the envelope successfully to garner as much attention to his line of products better than any designer to date. His TV commercials are sexy and alluring, offering both men and women the opportunity to purchase his clothing, perfume, underwear, and accessories.
However, when it comes to Calvin Klein perfume, he has captured the essence of what many men and women vision as the perfect accompaniment to their personalities – an assortment of fragrances that would be accepted by even the most discerning among us.
