We women love nothing more than a man who smells just as delicious as he looks. And without a doubt, one of the most famous and widely-used brand of fragrances among men is Calvin Klein. If you are looking to gift your man a new, refreshing fragrance, before you walk into another perfume store, read this first, because Calvin Klein has just the scent for your man!
Calvin Klein Fragrances has introduced the all-new Calvin Klein Defy Eau de Parfum as the next installment of its men’s fragrance portfolio. Following the launch of Calvin Klein Defy Eau de Toilette, this new fragrance is a celebration as well as expansion of the journey of defiance.
This campaign continues with an award-winning actor, the stunning Richard Madden, in a series of vulnerable, self-reflecting and defying moments that build up to a moment of courage with a leap of faith – a symbolic metaphor for personal defiance and the fearlessness to take risks… the perfect way to describe an inner spirit of a MAN!
The accompanying visual features Madden at twilight, which beautifully expresses the powerful essence of the Calvin Klein campaign. Clothed in Calvin Klein’s iconic jeans and a timeless white t-shirt, Madden’s purposeful eyes meet the camera with a rebellious stare in the midst of an urban landscape which is seemingly blurred at a distance. A beautiful and powerful deep blue sky illustrates the gradient coloured style of the fragrance bottle.
Calvin Klein Defy Eau de Parfum continues to defy expectations with its distinctive scent – a seductive leather note that is contrasted with an uplifting freshness. While encompassing the same woody signature touch as the original Eau de Toilette, the Eau de Parfum is presented with an unexpected twist by incorporating much warmer and darker notes. If dark, woody and citrusy perfumes are your man’s go to, then you should totes get this bottle for him.
Refreshing and sexy woody/citrusy scents, like the Calvin Klein Defy Eau de Parfum, are the best fragrances on a man, that will surely make a room full of women turn their heads when he walks by. Or, even possibly, make a few vaginas wet! Just saying. A powerful and sexy fragrance on a man opens many pu$$ybilities to a woman’s nose and heart!
The fragrance opens up with a burst of citrus, infused along with tangy Mandarin Oil. The middle notes comprise addictive leather accord that adds modern masculinity, and builds extreme contrast to the rich Vetiver Oil at the base, evoking the ethos of the campaign. To highlight as well as reflect the fragrance’s modernity, Calvin Klein is proud to present that 80.6 per cent of the ingredients are naturally sourced. Housed in a luxurious premium bottle, the new lavish packaging pays homage to the edgy aesthetics of Calvin Klein’s design codes.
What makes the new fragrance more meaningful is the message of the campaign, which is carefully structured into the whole design of the bottle itself. The bottle symbolises the opposing forces that celebrate Madden’s two sides – a vulnerable yet courageous spirit (the curves of the bottle), and the sharp and powerful corners. The luxe, sophisticated weighted glass is coloured in an intense navy blue that fades off to a gradient – reminiscent of the campaign’s twilight moment. And finally, to finish off this beautiful flacon, it is topped off with a textured matte blue cap, inspired by Calvin Klein denim.
