It’s been 21 years since CK One was unleashed to the world as the first unisex fragrance from Calvin Klein. And now CK2—a fresh scent with mandarin, vetiver, incense, sandalwood, wasabi, and an accord called wet cobblestones—is defying the dictum that the sequel is never as good as the original. As much as we’re digging the fragrance, the bottle has us swooning: The clear tube sits right-side up or upside down in its stand. Get it? It goes both ways. Think of it as a clever design metaphor for a fragrance meant for men or women, gay or straight, transgender, pangender, or postgender. Or, to put it simply, anyone who answers to the label “human.”
Fresh. Warm. Electric. ck2 is a dual-faceted scent that balances two opposing forces: the strike of spicy electric freshness and the warmth of magnetic woods. a signature fragrance for an urban, alternative, new freshness. complex while cool and natural, two fragrance worlds merge together to create an exuberant, intimate and contrasted connection.
ck2 reinterprets minimalism and art by inviting you to look through the clear container and experience the scent before applying. An expression of ck2’s gender-free fragrance, the 2-part design unites male and female elements. a sleek rounded bulb of glass houses the juice and sits atop a solid square cap that also serves as a unit to maintain the bottle upside down. both the bottle and cap go beyond the classic fragrance bottle to create two pieces perfectly in-sync and connected to each other, much like the connection of two people. the bottle is a pure, transparent and futuristic design that is cool and gender-free.
