Calvin Klein Down Town Review
Down Town is a fragrance by Calvin Klein that was released over the summer (hi, can you say 'lazy blogger'?)
I think Down Town is one of Calvin Klein's more feminine fragrances, but in true CK tradition, it's still got a very independent feel to it. I think Rooney Mara was the perfect choice to front the campaign, she has that tough-girl chic thing down.
This perfume comes in a clear bottle (all the better to see the delicate pink perfume!) with a metallic lid that has bright fuchsia inside. I've read some reviews that weren't crazy about the bottle, but I actually think it's really pretty. It's got that Calvin Klein simplicity, and the pink is a little bit of a surprise.
Down Town's top notes are Italian cedrate, bergamot, Tunisian neroli, green pear and watery plum. It's middle notes are pink peppercorn, violet leaf and gardenia petals, while the bottom notes are Texan cedarwood, incense, vetiver and velvet musks.My nose definitely picks up the neroli, gardenia and vetiver and that mix seems to work really well for me!
I would probably wear this perfume to a concert or art gallery. It's the kind of perfume that is just really cool. It's kind of like the leather jacket of feminine perfumes haha
