Contradiction by Calvin Klein is an “Eau de Parfum” for women, with floral and woody notes. This perfume is created from traditional smell, so we can consider it as an ode to classicism. Warm and sensual hues transport us to a world full of peace, black and white, pleasant, feminine and full of sensuality. This fragrance was created in 1998 by perfumer Ann Gottlieb. It would be reflected in this fragrance her love for flowers and so classic, because as we know “A classic never dies“ and so reflected in its creation. Delicious floral notes are combined to immerse ourselves in a romantic and seductive world in which we flew to our free will. Starts with fresh and citrus notes, directly with a floral bouquet, consisting of peony, lily, false jasmine, orchid, lily of the valley and rose, absolute femininity and addictive warmth invade our senses to make way for more intensive flowers like blackberry and jasmine. Finally, we appreciate a touch of subtle sensuality with sandalwood, tonka bean musk.

To prolong the scent longer, apply your fragrance to your wrists and behind the earlobe. These areas pulse having a temperature above the rest of the body, and this will help the fragrance to evaporate slower. Avoid spraying perfume onto your clothes as it can stain, damage and alter certain fabrics. To prolong the scent of the fragrance, we recommend using products from the same range as shower gel, body lotions or deodorants.
Protect your fragrance from direct sunlight and heat, otherwise it could alter the composition of the fragrance and escape.
