Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh: The Review

Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh Eau de Parfum review

Eternity is one of the most iconic fragrance collections released by Calvin Klein. Designed as a tribute to Calvin Klein’s eternal love for his wife and family, Eternity tells the story of love shared over a lifetime. A message represented by the face of Eternity, real-life forever couple Christy Turlington and Edwards Burns who modelled the first fragrance in 1988 and again in 2020. These Fragrances have stood the test of time, and are proven best sellers with countless incredible flankers, which includes their latest addition, Eau Fresh.

Everything you love from the original is back for Eau Fresh, but with a lighter, more sparkling feel. Whereas Eternity is a classic scent that doesn’t necessarily appeal to a younger audience, Eau Fresh does. It still feels romantic, and elegant to wear, but the original notes of musks and jasmine are a lot dewier here because Klein introduces sweet fruits rather than sharp citruses.


The Smell:

Soft, sophisticated and subtle are three words that instantly come to mind when describing this fragrance. The first impression as you spritz is a short burst of sweet pear, blackcurrant and citrusy bergamot. The refreshing opening fades almost instantly and you’re left with a floral heart of peony, rose and jasmine, which instantly reminds us of fresh morning dew left on flowers. As you wear the fragrance the sweetness dies down leaving you with a sophisticated base of patchouli, musk and amber.

From start to finish, the Eau de Parfum feels classy and innately feminine, and although it’s not overpowering, it has enough character to stand out from average floral Eau de Parfum.


The Notes:

Fragrance family: fruity-floral.

Top Notes: Pear, Blackcurrant, Bergamot.
Heart Notes: Peony, Rose Absolute, Jasmine Absolute.
Base Notes: Patchouli Coeur, Sensual Skin Musk, Amber.

Is Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh Unisex?

Eau Fresh is marketed at women, but if you like sweet fragrances we believe this can be worn by anyone. If you’re looking for something more masculine, or you want to coordinate with your partner, there’s a Cologne for men in the collection.


How Long Does Eternity Eau Fresh Last?

Eternity Eau Fresh is one of those fragrances that when you smell its sweet presence, you think, wow that’s elegant, but never bold or brash. If you avoid ‘in your face’ fragrances but want the smell to last, this is the one for you as it lasts around four hours before needing a top-up.


The Bottle:

If you’re a fan of the Eternity collection you’ll recognise the bottle instantly. The flacon is a testament to the original Eternity fragrance with the same silver design but has a pale pink liquid instead of green to match the fresh fruity-floral scent.


What Our Team Thought of Eau Fresh:

Name: Sean
Age: 29

If you had to describe it in three words it would be:
“Sweet, fresh and summery.”

Describe Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh in more detail:

Where would you wear it?
“I wouldn’t wear it but I think this fragrance smells quite youthful; I can imagine a girl in her 20s wearing this going out for a cocktail in the sun.”

What do you think it smells similar to?
“It reminds me of a fresh bouquet that I would buy for my wife.”


Name: Beth

If you had to describe it in three words it would be: “Feminine, fresh and floral.”

Describe Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh in more detail:
“I think it smells really girly and reminds me of spring – it’s something I’d wear in the warmer months! I normally opt for alternative fragrances but if it was given to me as a gift I would definitely use and enjoy it.”

Where would you wear it?
“I can imagine myself wearing this to a friends garden party in a floaty summer dress (paired with my Doc Martens, of course!) with a G&T in my hand.”

What do you think it smells similar to?
“Fresh flowers, when I walk past the florist.”


Our Predictions For Calvin Klein Eternity Eau Fresh:

Eternity fragrance collection has been around for four years and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. While the original Eternity editions were favoured by more mature women, this addition has a more playful and pretty side that we predict will be the favourite amongst a younger generation.
