Aimee’s Picks is a weekly beauty column that features Aimee’s favourite beauty loot – from lipsticks to lotions and everything in between – specifically for gals in their 20’s.
So can I start off by saying I have loved CK perfumes and colognes since I learned about its ads featuring controversially over-sexed and underfed boys and girls in the 90s? I was only, like, five at the time, but as my thirst for all things beauty eventually led me to discover CK’s pioneering of advertising in this way, I was instantly in love.
When I found out the iconic Kate Moss was one of those naughty girls, I was elated – Queen Kate rules my fashion and beauty world. So although I have a mighty big roster of rotating fragrances to satisfy my immeasurable beauty obsession, CK perfumes (and colognes!) have always had a spot in my heart… and on my neck.
Next month, CK One gives us a Red edition, one for him and one for her. The perfume, “uniquely energizing, yet daring and intense – features juicy watermelon, invigorating florals and velvety musks,” while the cologne “opens with a burst of the succulent juiciness of asian pear for a luscious top spiked with the energetic aldehydes, and also features rich suede and sensual vetiver.” And since I’ve now met the love of my life, I can enjoy both his and her’s scents, although I still sometimes share his.
