Swanky's Review of Escape for Men by Calvin Klein

Undoubtedly, CK's Escape has been an influential product. It helped usher in the trend in masculine fragrances toward fresh, aquatic scents. It is not watery like many of its brethren. I agree with Shamu that it is not sweet, but the citrus is indeed prominent and while I detect the spice, I can't say that it is "super spicy" at all. Ultimately, this is not my kind of scent.

It was a bit more daring at the time it came out, but today it is run-of-the-mill and somewhat dull. I find it linear and, after a few hours, grating.

I don't have a particular axe to grind with Calvin Klein. I simply am not impressed by this offering.
