The thrill of the chase. We can break it down, but we don’t need to. You know the feeling alright, it’s universal, that heady intoxication you get when you lay eyes on that significant someone, a free-falling sort of feeling because you just can’t seem to get that person out of your head, as if you want to breathe in every moment with him or her. It’s this reeling mix of idealism, fantasy and excitement that defines “the chase”, and funny enough, this thrill applies just as much when we’re talking about the ck2.
It’s a fresh gender-free scent that defies classification – now, where does it sit on the shelf if it’s neither a “his” or “her” scent? – but that’s precisely why we’re so smitten. Due to its anything-goes nature, it’s definitely a scent made for sharing too – could be your lover, best friend, buddy or sibling, as long as you both have it on, you’ll feel an immediate connection, invincible, and ready to take on the world.
Plus, no way will we be ditching this after we’re done; it just smells too good. Like any rock concert worth talking about, it opens with an unexpected act that makes you want to sit up and take notice, just that this time, it’s the thrilling beats of spicy wasabi, blended with mandarin and violet leaf. We then get to the powerful heart of the scent, a heart-thumping mix of fresh florals that bloom alongside urban elements of wet cobblestones and orris concrete, followed by lingering notes of vetiver, creamy sandalwood and sensual musks, basically, the kind of vibes you want to soak in all day long.
Along with the fragrance, Calvin Klein has also launched a #the2ofus campaign that sees regular people, influencers, and celebrities sharing stuff they’d do together as a pair, be it making music, travelling, lounging, or just doing things that appeal to that adventurous streak in all of us. All because of one particular bottle and its all-encompassing scent. Youthful thrill-seekers, you know where to get some.
