The Calvin Klein fragrances for both men and women top all kinds of charts for their modern, vigorous and bold nature. From the classic Eternity, which is one of the most universal perfumes ever created, to Euphoria, which is one of the total hits in the market, each and every one of the creations of the luxury designer brand is totally hip and unique. The history of the brand is as intriguing as its products.
The brand was founded in 1968 by designer Calvin Klein and bears his name to this day. What started as a small shop for coats in New York City soon became a huge fashion empire. In the early 1970's the brand became known for its sportswear, blazers and lingerie. Klein received his first Coty Award in 1973. By 1977, the company was making not only apparel and underwear, but also shoes, belts, scarves, sunglasses and even bed sheets.
In the 1980's, Calvin Klein became one of the top brands making designer jeans. Their underwear collections were a total hit. In the 1990's the underpants of the brand advertised by Mark Wahlberg became so popular that they became known as Calvins. The 90's were not the greatest time for the brand, financially though. However, it managed to regain its position and was sold to PVH in 2002 for $400 million in case, $30 million in stock and royalties based on revenue for the following 15 years.
The firs fragrance of the luxury designer brand called Calvin for Men was introduced in 1981, after the company had made an unsuccessful attempt to enter the cosmetic industry in the 1970's. Calvin was not a big success, but the next fragrance of the brand Obsession for Women launched in 1985 became a mega hit. The perfume was mysterious, sensual and provocative with its spicy, floral and woody notes. Obsession for Men came out the following year.
The next big hit by Calvin Klein was Eternity. The women's fragrance was launched in 1988 while the men's perfume was introduced to the market one year later. Both designs are popular for their fresh and energising nature. They are considered the ultimate universal perfumes which can be worn at the office, on weekends and in the evening. Eternity Rose Blush, Eternity Purple Orchid and Eternity Moment for women were all launched after 2000. Eternity Summer for men and Eternity Summer women are among the best fragrances for the warm months.
One of the top perfumes ever created is CK One. Launched in 1994, this was the first unisex perfume enjoying mass popularity. The TV commercial with naked Kate Moss was a massive hit as well.
Euphoria for Women, which debuted back in 2005, is one of the latest best selling fragrances of Calvin Klein. It won the Fifi Award for best luxe fragrance that year. This perfume is sensual, voluptuous, exquisite and sweet. Euphoria for Men came out in 2006. Even though it became popular with guys, Obsession Night for Men, introduced in 2005, grabbed their hearts. This is one of the most recommended perfumes for dates and evenings out.
