Review: REVEAL by Calvin Klein

Reveal by Calvin Klein review #ad

Those of you who attended read my recent post, Remedial Blogging: So You Want to be a Blogger know that I’m still learning my way around this big blogging world and I’m trying new things. One of those new things I’ve been trying is Influenster. Influenster is a website where you register your social media accounts and answer several questions and submit small reviews on some products. If you have lots of social media and/or are active on their site, they send you various things in the mail to try. One of the most coveted items on the list: the monthly VoxBox, which appears to be a cornucopia of goodies.

My interest in obtaining a voxbox led me to Influenster. Within a few weeks of registering and answering loads of questions and writing reviews, I was selected to get a sample of Calvin Klein’s men’s collogne, Reveal. I’m not being paid for this review, but I did receive the sample and a small card holder for free in exchange for this post. My review though is honest.

When I first met my husband, I thought he was cute and charming (well, okay, maybe at first I thought he was annoying. But certainly, by the end of our first date, I thought he was cute and charming). I fell in love with everything about him. I loved the little stripey sweaters he would wear back then). And I loved the way his ears would turn red when I showed him interest. And when he got close, I loved the way he smelled….like, I really loved the way he smelled.

I learned later it was Obsession…Calvin Klein. It’s become the go-to birthday present. “I’m going to honor your birthday by getting you something you really like. He’s a new bottle of Obsession…again”. So, while “Men’s Cologne” is not a tag on this blog, when I saw the opportunity to try out a new men’s cologne from Calvin Klein, I thought it would be interesting, fun and relevant to my life.

So, for the first time in the 10 years we’ve been married, my husband donned a new cologne. I thought it would be weird. I thought I would hate a different smell on him….like that time he changed his deodorant and I told him he couldn’t come to bed until he washed it off. But it wasn’t.

Reveal is sort of bold and woodsy, but musky in a really gentle, unoffensive way. It’s not stupid. It doesn’t invoke images of commercials where the ultimate man needs adrenaline-pumping adventures. It just smells masculine and sweet. Kind of floral, but not girly floral. It’s romantic and I like it. I actually like the change.

So, in the end, I would say that Reveal is a bit stronger than Obsession, but not in a bad way at all. It’s a welcome change and I think long term, this one will be on my radar to mix up the go-to birthday gifts. Sometimes Mr. Domestically Challenged will get Obsession; sometimes he’ll get Reveal.

What is your favorite cologne and why do you like it?
