New and Notable at Shoppers Drug Mart - Fragrances from Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Baby Phat!

Very Irrésistible Givenchy L'Intense - 50ml EDP $93, 100ml EDP $107 - top note of purple plum; heart note of intense rose; and base notes of patchouli and intense musk.  The first thing I did when I got in the store was head straight for this display and sprayed some on.  I knew I would like it at first because of the plum but I was curious to see how it would smell after it settled as rose is not my thing at all.  Verdict: while it was floralish, the musk helped balance it out and it was very sultry on me.  Husband's verdict: Wow! I also love the advertising campaign with Liv Tyler - I think Liv looks so striking in it!

CK One Summer - 100ml EDT $58 - with top notes of citruses, tangerine, melon and aquatic ferns; heart notes of lemon, ocean accord, blue freesia, verbena and rhubarb; and a base of incense, cedar, musk and peach. This is one fragrance that I always look forward too and the years I like best are the ones that have a lot of citrus so this one does not disappoint me!

Calvin Klein Eternity Summer For Women - 100ml EDP $72  - with top notes of lily of the valley, violet and coriander; a heart of gardenia, jasmine and lotus; and a base of musk, mimosa and fig tree. - Eternity Summer For Men 100ml EDT $72 - the top notes include a citrus mix, mint, coriander, watermelon and ocean air accord; a heart of Star anise, galbanum, and lily of the valley; and a base of cedar, patchouli and amber. I was out of wrists so I didn't actually spray this one on me, I did spray it on a tester card and it was light and floral - if anyone's had it on their person, let us know what you think of it!
And if you pick one of the Calvin Klein fragrances up, don't forget to score the GWP, they had one on display and it is super cute, this is one of those GWP's that I would buy the product just to get it!

Baby Phat Love Me by Kimora Lee Simmons - 30ml EDT $35 - with notes of tangerine, jasmine petals, vanilla blossom and sandalwood. Again, I was out of skin to spray this on but on the card, I quite liked it!
