Calvin Klein Makes Holiday Shopping Easy!

Perfectly suited for daytime wear, Beauty by Calvin Klein is a light and lovely blend of Jasmine (one of my favorite scents!), neo-lily and cedarwood. Beauty is a very feminine fragrance with a bit of sensuality to it without being over-bearing or in your face. This is a perfume I could see a woman in her 20s wearing as well as a woman in her 50s because it smells a unique on everyone. A perfect gift for anyone who likes a more floral fragrance.

3.4oz/100ml $85.00
1.7oz/50ml $65.00
1.0oz/30ml $50.00

The more I smells this fragrance, the more I fall in love. This has replaced every perfume in my "fragrance wardrobe" at the moment. Euphoria is an incredibly beautiful oriental fragrance that perfectly blends exotic fruits, florals and cream with notes like Pomegranate, Persimmon, Green Notes, Black Orchid, Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Liquid Amber, Mahogany Wood, Black Violet and Cream Accord. It's a gorgeous daytime or nighttime fragrance but it really is so fitting for a date night or evening out! Euphoria is super sensual and feminine and a great gift for any woman in your life!

What makes this an even more perfect gift? A complimentary box of chocolates with every Euphoria purchase when purchased at Macy's! (Go ahead and get yours soon because the offer only lasts until Dec. 31st and while supplies last!)

Don't forget the man in your life! The Euphoria for Men is a sexy and masculine fragrance. It's a wonderful mix rich, fresh and spicey notes like Black Basil, Sage, Brazilian Redwood and Chilled Sudachi.

3.4oz/100ml $78.00
1.7oz/50ml $60.00
1.0oz/30ml $45.00

These fragrances are available at fine department stores, the complimentary box of chocolates with a Euphoria purchase is available at Macys!

This product was sent to me for consideration to review. I was not paid for my review, nor am I affiliated with the company in anyway. This is my honest opinion based upon my personal experience!
