Contradiction: I like and dislike it really. Review with images

AdvantagesUnique and quite long lasting fragrance.

DisadvantagesNone!

"'''Reason For Using Contradiction By Calvin Klein:''' I was bought the Contradiction Eau de Parfume 30ml Spray as a Birthday gift from my Mum just over one year ago. I have always liked the Calvin Klein range of perfumes especially the CK ones, but never had used or even tried this particular make before, so was quite pleased to have received it as a gift at the time and quite anxious to try it out really. '''The Gift Box:''' Well my first impressions ..." Read review

Not Special Enough For Me... Review with images

Advantagesvery cheap, bottle, okay scent, staying power

Disadvantagesnot particularly special or memorable, lacks Oriental notes

"===Contradiction=== Contradiction is part of the Calvin Klein line up of fragrances and is available in a male and female version. The female version is an eau de parfum and was launched in 1998. Contradiction falls into the 'floral oriental' fragrance family and CK state that this fragrance is for an 'active, urban woman'. As with other fragrances, Contradicition has been put together using three sets of fragrance notes. The notes develop on the ..." Read review

Calvin Klein Contradiciotn - For Her

AdvantagesA lovely all round perfume

DisadvantagesNone for me

"Calvin Klein Contradiction was first bought for me on Christmas, I love trying different perfumes and had never tried any from the Contradiction range before, that was several years ago and now every Christmas it has got to be a bit of a tradition that there is always a bottle of Calvin Klein Contradiction under the tree for me. Packaging and Appearance Calvin Klein Contradiction comes in a long thin slightly frosted bottle allowing you to see ..." Read review

Makes me so HORNY that I TEAR my CLOTHES OFF

AdvantagesIts fantastic

DisadvantagesNone

"...it smell truly exquisite. Other Calvin Klein fragrances pale into the background when compared to Contradiction. I am partial to Eternity though and use it when I fancy a change. The bottle costs £33.99 for a 50ml bottle from Argos. Other places can charge between £35 to £45 but that’s the cheapest I’ve found it in a reputable shop. The bottle shown in the Ciao picture is misleading. It looks quite sleek and modern really- I took my own ..." Read review

Am I Contradicting myself?

AdvantagesPerfect for the girl who can't decide....

DisadvantagesAbsolutely none (Unless you decide you don't like the smell of course!)

"...and long-lasting. Contradiction was created by Calvin Klein in 1997 as a recommended day-wear perfume. (Personally I think it’s perfectly adequate for any occasion after all it is a contradiction). It is very feminine and posses a blend of pure pepper, rose, satin wood and sandalwood. The top notes are rose, bergamot and jasmine. Middle notes (or heart notes) are vanilla, cedar and moss and base notes are sandalwood, musk and oakmoss. To ..." Read review

The perfume with a multitude of uses

AdvantagesIt smells bloody gorgeous

DisadvantagesThe price.

"Don't be put off this eau de toilette by ciao's picture: Fortunately or sadly, it isn't an unusually long silver plated vibrator for the woman who has everything. Nay, it's a tres cool smell for the gal with tattoo's. The last time I bought perfume was in the Body Shop's heyday and like every teen with delusions of grandeur, I drenched myself in White Musk. A couple of years ago I decided that I needed a 'smell', one that wasn't baby puke. I wanted ..." Read review

There's no Contradiction for me Review with images

AdvantagesGorgeous long lasting smell

DisadvantagesBottle design is quite poor

"I adore Contradiction by Calvin Klein. My rather plain looking glass bottle with silver top cost me just over £40 for the 100ml sized bottle but as this is an EDP rather than an EDT, it is really quite a powerful smell and it lasts for ages once I’ve sprayed only a tiny bit onto my skin. This perfume was originally launched in 1998 and on and off over the years I still keep on going back to it as it’s a really gorgeous fragrance which keeps pulling ..." Read review

Smell good?

AdvantagesBeautifully fresh smell

DisadvantagesBit pricey

"I first experienced Contradiction when on holiday in the Dominican Republic. My Dad was very sly and bought my mum a 50ml bottle from the duty free on the plane and gave it to my mum on Christmas day (yes the Carribean at Christmas, amazing!) She loved it so much that now I cannot help but assoicate the smell with the gorgeous holiday. Having recently been bought the perfume by my loved one I love it just as much as she does. Clavin Klein, the ..." Read review

Gorgeous and Sexy

AdvantagesIt suits any occasion and has the most gorgeous scent

DisadvantagesNone

"I was brought this perfume by my fiancé a couple of Christmas’s ago and I love it so does he, it’s such a gorgeous fragrance and it makes you feel good about yourself and kind of sexy. This fragrance is fresh and light and lasts a very long time maybe not all day but the best part of a day. I would say this perfume is for any occasion. This perfume can be quite expensive like for a 50ml you’d expect to pay £35, although I have ..." Read review

Calvin Klein Contradiction - Excellent for her

AdvantagesA refreshing introduction from Calvin Klein

DisadvantagesNot for sale in smaller retail shops

"...was because it is from Calvin Klein a well known brand. I had never heard of this perfume before this point. ***The smell*** This perfume is delicate and feminine. As one of many perfumes introduced by Calvin Klein it is a subtle change from the usual fragrances introduced over the years. The smell is exhilarating, fresh and vibrant. The perfume can be described as possessing a blend of pure pepper, rose, satin wood and sandalwood. ***Availability*** Contradiction ..." Read review

Warm, sexy, and VERY grown-up

AdvantagesSexy, crowd-pleaser. Lingering scent

DisadvantagesNone

"Contradiction is a strong, warm, sexy fragrance but manages to avoid being overpowering. I was given a bottle by my boyfriend because he liked it (always a good sign…). The bottle is really unusual as, when it is closed, you can only see a very small amount of the perfume itself. The silver cylindrical cover gives it a decadent minimalist appearance and has a function in protecting the perfume from sunlight and heat degeneration so hopefully it ..." Read review

Something smells good...

Advantages

Disadvantages

"I actually orginally bought this perfume for my mum for her birthday,..she has been raving about it for some time and had begged us to get her some. As it turns out my twin brother and I both got her excatly the same giftset! mind you, she wasn't complaining! When I went in to buy Contradiction you got a free mans and womens tester capsule (you know one of those awkward little pipe things that you can never get the top off without spilling the perfume ..."

Longer lasting popularity

AdvantagesLasts long

DisadvantagesNone really, thought I'd be conforming to the masses, but it's still a little well hidden!

"...That could be beccause Calvin Klein started circulating samples of Contradiction about 4 months before it got to the shelves, making me instantly buy a bottle as soon as I saw it - clever marketing ploy methinks. Anyway, after I got over the price (which is actually no worse than any of the other "designer" names, I just usually don't splash out!) I found that it is a very long lasting fragrance which, on summer days I thought suited day use as well ..." Read review

Contradiction is the appropriate word here

AdvantagesIf you like wasting your money on expensive fragances that won't last then this is the one for you!!

DisadvantagesFragance does not last - Costly fragance.

"...I thought I would give Calvin Klein yet more of my wage as I tried the new 'Contradiction' but was disappointed yet again and after having read the other opinions here I find mine to be the 'Contradiction' of terms because I don't find the smell to last at all. Maybe it is just me but I can't see it happening with every CK fragance I buy! A disappointing buy on my behalf I think and a costly mistake at that. The look of the bottle is excellent ..."

Love it!

AdvantagesExcelent scent for special occasions or evenings

Disadvantagesnone really

"I originally bought this perfume as a present for my mums birthday but loved it so much I ended up buying it for myself! I have tons of perfumes at home but this one really stands out as my favorite, its so different to anything else available at the moment and although fairly expensive you are not only paying for the label but also for a quality product which has good staying power. The bottles are extremely attractive and also are very sturdy ..." Read review
