The gift I was most excited about opening on Christmas morning is something I receive every year from my beautiful mum, a 50ml bottle of Eternity perfume by Calvin Klein. It's become almost a Christmas tradition and I love it because Eternity has been my favourite scent since I was about 14. I'd never been without a bottle until this year when I ran out quite a few months ago; I have other perfumes I like, but I certainly don't love them as much. There's something about this scent and my body chemistry that just works & whenever I wear it at least one person asks me what scent I have on.
The element I like most about this perfume is that it's very fresh, feminine & floral based without being too overpowering. When it comes to describing scents further than the absolute basics I'm the first to admit that it's not my forte at all. Thankfully Google has provided me with those snippets of information I need to know! Eternity was inspired by the ideas of intimacy, romance & lasting love and blends fresh notes of white lily, white florals, marigold and mandarin with slightly heavier notes of amber and sandalwood. I'm a total sucker for marketing spiel like that but I can see how they've taken that initial idea and developed a scent that reflects it perfectly. I don't know, I just think it's adorable!
To me Eternity is a very simple and classic perfume, from the packaging to how the scent develops on the skin throughout the day. I wear this all the time and I don't think there is an occasion it's not appropriate for. It seems to work as an every day scent as well as it does for special occasions. If they ever stop making this I think I might have to cry and I never want to be without a bottle ever again.
