It’s been a while since Calvin Klein launched a major men’s fragrance and I was eager to try it out when I heard about it.

The ENCOUNTER Calvin Klein campaign comes in a 2-min short film starring Alexander Skarsgård and Lara Stone. It’s modern take on classic film noir – the dark and mysterious creative unfolds through a complex game in which the man ultimately remains in control of his desires, leaving the story open to infinite possibilities. Watch the video below before I go on about the scent.

The Scent

ENCOUNTER Calvin Klein did not disappoint as an addictive cocktail of crisp spice, warm cognac and sensual woods. Extremely masculine and mystery to smell, I think it will get a good following. It opens with a gasp of rum and orange moving on to hints of egyptian jasmine and patchouli, and finally settling down in a sexy musk at the end.

Calvin Klein encounter will be available from November 2012 in Singapore, but I am fortunate to be the lucky few to get to try it first. [Smirk on the face]
