CK Free is a modern, masculine fragrance for men, which arrives on the market in August 2009. Top notes incorporate absynth, jackfruit, star annis and juniper berries. A heart adds a union of suede, coffee, tobacco leaf and buchu (Agathosma betulina), while a base offers oak, patchouli, cedar and ironwood. CK Free was created by Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Ellen Molner.

Mediocre fresh scent which is best suited for the summer.

I bought this as I have quite a few of the CK fragrances and am unashamed to say I like them. Escape is great in a 90s kinda vibe, Obsession can be rocked in the winter and Contradiction was excellent too.

This is a huge let down though for the main reason that it doesn't even last 1 hr before it dries down to nothing. I didn't want to believe the reviews so bought it for around £20 for a 100ml bottle on eBay with a matching deo stick roll-on. Even for that price it wasn't worth it.

It does smell quite nice but basically is just like spritzing your neck with Sprite or 7-Up. Sweet and bit citrus with a hint of tame patchouli. I'm not joking when I say you may as well splash a little bit of Sprite into the palm of your hand and dab it on your neck.

Me encanta esta, es varonil, fresca, moderna, nunca podría usarla un viejo anticuado, esta es una jovial disfrutable. A la mayoría de las mujeres que conozco les gustó, lo ÚNICO MALO fue que a la media hora (30 minutos) desaparecía por completo, triste y decepcionante... pero muy buen aroma jajaja

I have had a bottle of this stuff since November 2009, and I honestly really like it. It's a great daytime scent, and when I am looking for that I don't want a cologne that projects for a really long time. I don't want to annoy the people at the office, so having a scent that stays close to the skin after the first 3 hours is actually perfect for me.

It does its job. That's the bottom line.

This is probably the most non-offensive cologne ever created. This has "teenage little brother" written all over this. Perfect go to fragrance when you're heading to your local gym or playing with your kids in the back yard. This is something to wear for the sake of wearing something.

This stuff smells great! Very clean and fresh and pleasing. Smells like a fresh ocean breeze sort of. The longevity sucks though. After about 1 hour it will become weak and then within the next hour it's gone. Disappointing as I think it really smells good. Oh and the weak drydown is a bit toothpasty..? Good for teenagers and men in there 20's.

Got this as a gift and I like the smell. It was a small 30ml bottle so I keep it in my gym bag - and that's what it's perfect for - after the gym. It isn't that much of a special fragrance, it is just a splash of nice smell to throw on.

CK Free is a fragrance that promises so much, yet delivers so little. The notes in the pyramid look absolutely amazing; however the scent in the bottle bears little to no resemblance to those notes. That said it's not actually a bad fragrance. It's clean, light and fresh. Unfortunately it's also very generic and very run-of-the-mill.

Ck Free is one of the newest scents for the CK house. I got the 1.7 oz from TJ Maxx for 20 bucks which is a good bargain bin price for Calvin Klein's fragrances. This a perfect for casual laid back use. Doesnt last that long but the presentaion is nice. CK's fragrances usually arent strong and overpowering and this a perfect example

Received this as a gift rather soon after it came out (sometime in 2010). I tried it initially (a few times), and felt it was a rather good, but mainstream CK offering with some decent notes (albeit somewhat synthetic)...but not off-putting in any way. I found it to be a nice green, aromatic woody scent - a bit nondescript, but something entirely wearable. Was I hoping for more? Not sure - I actually was a bit embarrassed as I had acquired some Vintage fragrances just prior to receiving this. I am not sure my sense of gratefulness came across. You see, I tend to have disdain for current CK fragrances and formulations - but something is going on here. I put on a fake smile at the time and tried it...later and alone.

It got put into a box I have for Spring/Summer scents (as it was cooler weather then) and I pulled it out twice last year - actually, surprisingly liking it even a bit more. It was moved into the bottom of a drawer that I keep - for scents that I "remind myself to revisit". It is a totally inoffensive casual scent that one sprays on liberally - initially, I saw it as a warm-weather scent (but cooler weather works just as well actually, including rain which K1 picked up on...but not cold). This is something to wear to the store, out to visit with friends, weekends, and just around the house (as I'm typing this).

Why would I take the time to write a review on CK Free? I am oddly compelled to do so. Mainly, because of what my friend, K1, wrote below. He transcended notes, scent pyramids and the typical mundane review and instead, evoked excellent imagery with a rather cheap Calvin Klein offering. Excellent!

And, then, second is because the nose behind this, Rodrigo Flores-Roux. He has created some amazing compositions that reign superior and I have been enamored by his creative use of unique ingredients, harmonious bottling and his ability to make a flacon's (whether it be simple or stylized) purpose to be the juice inside. Too much is stylized today. His bottles for Tom Ford are exquisite and top-shelf in quality (and price!) - but it is his work with John Varvatos' line that brought me to him. The person who bought this for me later admitted knowing this was a bottle produced by the same nose of John Varvatos' creations - of which I had been wearing for a while (JV for Men and Vintage with the excellent After Shave balms for layering) and just fell in love with Artisan (the gorgeous fragrance it is to me)!! Rodrigo Flores-Roux was someone I was now watching and soon picked up Artisan Black, which is in my rotation as well.

Here is the key to Rodrigo Flores-Roux's creations - it doesn't take a trained nose to appreciate them as they are wonderful and fragrant, but it does take a trained nose and palate to "understand" them. Less so here - as this is the only CK bottle he has ever made. I have to say...it is a solid bottle of fragrance. My only complaint with the John Varvatos line is longevity. That is the only drawback here.

I like how this goes on. Nice, aromatic and slightly "green" notes and fruit on top (wormwood, a touch of star anise, and a light fruit note in the top listed as jackfruit, and the fragrant juniper berry)...a very nice opening. Inviting.

The middle is mostly suede - both in "feeling" (smooth) and scent with nice blended nuances of coffee and tobacco leaf, neither being loud at all. I actually pick up the patchouli (which is nice here - not a dark and deep patchouli at all, but a much greener one that is a touch earthy but more herbaceous). Very nice. Patchouli (actually from the mint family) is a very commonly used note in fragrance, but has a broad range of smell - from nearly clean and lifted to deep, dark and smoky. It depends on when it is harvested and how the essential oil is extracted through fermentation and distillation. The wood notes are well-integrated here with cedar and oak blended well.

In typical Flores-Roux style, interesting and unique notes are brought into the composition (jackfruit and wormwood in the top, buchu is listed in the heart and ironwood is listed in the base). I cannot lend an olfactory perspective to those notes, but then again, even if it is a small quantity, they were included because they sound exotic and possibly create a subtle touch that perhaps alters the notes we commonly know - like cedar and oak.

My final thought is this...while it doesn't have good longevity on my skin, this is about pure enjoyment of scent. There are no fixatives here that extend the life (just a couple hours or so for me in a full wearing). If this had a strong vanilla or amber base, it would stay for hours longer. I'm glad it doesn't. I have several woody aromatics that cost more than this, but offer about the same in both projection and longevity - I am fine with that. A layered application helps (spray liberally and then 15-20 minutes later, reapply more to the same spots and so it saturates) plus wear on clothing to project more. Not a loud scent - but I like that. Intimate. Confident. Masculine & inviting.

Rodrigo Flores-Roux is a top perfumer and highly-regarded. Calvin Klein was very lucky to have him produce a bottle for their line. The more I wear this, the more I like it. It actually has less of a synthesized feel than before. In my opinion, a scent that I kept in "that" drawer for a reason - this needed to be revisited! It will definitely be worn more this summer and fall - for pure enjoyment...sometimes out and, more often, around the house. A better release than virtually everything from CK - period. The only one I prefer to this (in current production) is Escape for Men, but in an entirely different way. The Original Vintage Calvin by Calvin Klein (1981) is still the greatest from this house...of all time.

Very decent bottle of scent here and one that stands head & shoulders above the rest currently out there with a CK on the label, in my humble opinion.

Scent - 7.5+/10; Projection - 6/10; Longevity - 5/10.

This a woody, spicy, fresh scent and I think you can pull it off for any season. It's longevity really isn't THAT bad... It lasts about 6-7 hours, and Calvin Klein as well as lots of other designers have had much shorter-lasting fragrances. It is my signature cologne for Spring and Summer and I would recommend it for all ages.

This one really surprised me. My brother got it for Christmas and I sprayed some on the back of my hand and I've been getting compliments all day!
It opens very fruity, I don't know if this is the juniper berries, but it has an apple-like quality. There is a slight spicy bite also, not anise, maybe the wormwood, I'm not familiar with how this smells. The patchouli note makes this a little bit dry and crisp. As it wears the cedar note becomes prominent, as does the suede which makes this very woody and smooth and very enjoyable.
In the bottle this smelled like just another boring men's scent; aquatic, aromatic, but on the skin this really shines. Worth a try. Longevity decent, I'm on 6 hours now.

For me the longevity is not the issue, but the sillage/ projection and how "loud" it ISN'T. I can smell the the suede and patchouli. I get a powdery suede pouch filled with patchouli, but a very small one - only about 2 inches in diameter.


*Addition/Edit* - 7/24/2011:
I really do enjoy this fragrance, IMMENSELY! I didn't pick up on a few of the notes (ie. juniper berries) until recently. I had to apply at least double the amount to get moderate projection. However, I think that is the idea here!! IMO this is NOT supposed to be a "Hey look at me" fragrance, but more of an intimate and purposely close-to-the-body smell. See... at first I was disappointed that it doesn't project how I would like, but EVERY (and i mean every) single woman that has smelled this on me, has absolutley loved it. It's called free for a reason. We don't ALWAYS have to "smelled" by everyone; but for those who want to venture just a little closer, will be in for a nice surprise. :D

P.S. - I get 10+ hours out of it each time.
P.P.S. - This smells absolutely NOTHING like Nautica Voyage. Not even close, and not evena little bit. I am sorry, but you definitely need a new nose if you think that. :D

This is one of the few CK fragrances that doesn't give me the funky CK note that all seem to turn into on me. On my skin, they all turn sour, except for this fun and sporty cologne. Lasting power is decent, originality is a flop, but it's a very pleasant scent. This, CK One (and One Summer), and Obsession Night are the only CK's that don't turn sour on me. This is nice, if you see it discounted, go for it!

Yet another emasculated fragrance release from those folks at cK.

According to the notes listed above, it contains 'buchu'....What on earth is that?...Ah yes of course, that's 'Agathosma betulina'...and I'm left none the wiser....

Anyway, it's thoroughly boring in my opinion and hardly worth reviewing. However two points are worth a comment. Firstly the longevity is shockingly pathetic for a designer fragrance as you'll being doing really well to get more than 2 hours presence from it even after spraying heavily. Secondly, sadly like too many modern fragrances, the cool bottle design is about the only interesting thing here.

That's what I figured Baldessarini Del Mar should smell. Taking the idea I had from Baldessarini, and knowing Ambré, the light and at same time conservative CK Free looks like if had came from a family were Ambré is the grandfather (not in a bad way). Not meaning they share notes, drydown. It's just the feeling. Not in love with, but it's not a bad scent.

This scent is special, fresh, and clean. Makes me feel like after a nice warm shower. It somehow gives me a peppermint and dried orange kind a smell. Somehow, i still like this. This scent would be perfect for a 2 hour movie in cinema because the scent is totally gone after 2 hours.

Longevity? Very poor on my skin

Bottle? Classic

Projection? Good

I would love to recommend this juice if CK could improve its longevity..

CK Free is free of drama and excitement. The overall scent is pretty nice. It starts out a little dry, then it's warm up into a sweeter scent. I get a subtle hint of coffee; a little creamy, a little sweet. It gets slightly clean powdery as it moves toward the end. The rest is just hard to describe, but I don't get anything that's screaming woodsy here. Again, this is nice. I'd put in the goof-proof category.

You know what? I wasnt overly impressed with this because I didn't expect much from CK. My prejudice, yet loyal, attitude to him is because i know his scents always grow on me, which it did.
Patchouli, coffee, tobacco, suede, absinthe, juniper obviously go really well together.
It could be the perfect casual scent that would make for a nice weekend smell if not for the poorer than usual projection and longevity. Trying on my hand was great but wearing on my body was a nice smell that ended in dissapointment when I could barely smell it within the 4 hour mark. Its very close to the wearers nose, I can smell it well on my wrist, a light, green musk of patchouli and tobacco, but you ten to wonder if anyone else can smell it, because we all know inside there's not alot of point wearing a fume if noone can smell it.

If you like this scent I strongly suggest you try Hilfiger Loud. The patchouli and tobacco is strongly reminiscent between the two fragrance, but Loud also has a sweetening rose note on top that I personally think is a very nice touch.
Aslo the cedar and the suede match up pretty closely to Davidoff Echo, but without the aquatic misconception.

IMO, it is a stronger and longer lasting version of Gucci by Cucci por homme !!!! if i have to chose between both i would go for ck free for those reasons ..... both are very ordinary and dont worth much but not that bad at the same time ....

A woody EDT but fresh, something that took me by surprise. It has notes of fresh and spicy entry. The middle notes evoke a very cool green wood, too, I think the woods are better in cold climates, this is perfect for warm weather. Letters slightly spicy, green, and wood very young. Its base notes are little appreciated because it does not seem to reach that stage, before the scent fades.

It has a preferred age range of young, really is nothing romantic, just is fresh and different, a fresh wood for summer. It is a very clean and original scent. Use for friendly gatherings, can also be used in the office because it's nothing offensive, but has a unique character that is better spent in fun events. Duration in my skin about 6 hours.

ok im back. i smelt it on my skin. its ok. nothing special but not bad. dry down was nice. Its a 'nice' fragrance. Another light, fresh frag that has just a little much sweet in it without a hard edge that makes you wonder is it a unisex fragrance

so far on paper it smells really good
imna try it and seee how i like it. i can beleve it wont last too long but its not so expensice that you cant layer a bit on. It is another 'fresh young' type scent that has been marketed soo much but it isnt all citrusy or aquatic or woody. From what i smelt on the paper I will give it a try, smells sweet in a non fruity tutti way imo

I'm a little shocked by looking at the notes listed here. CK Free doesn't smell as unique as its composition.

I'm in agreeance with the other reviewers here, CK Free is very bland and boring. It's missing something that makes it stand out from the rest of the male scents on the market.

CK Free is not unpleasant, I find it very wearable, however it has a very citrusy and fresh edge that is starting to become a little overdone in the fragrance industry. I don't see citrus listed here in the notes, but I swear I can smell some bergamot and lemon with an almost aquatic type note.

The woods are not very prominent. In fact, the oak and cedar are so subtle that they could be easily dismissed. More in the way of the juniper berries, coffee and patchouli would have given this fragrance an interesting touch and would have made this fragrance far more complex than it is.

All in all, CK Free is a pleasant Summer scent that just hasn't managed to reach the mark with me.

i'm so skeptical with people that say they really smells the jackfruit out of this frag. I live in a tropical country where jackfruits r widely available n i have eaten it so many times not to mention smelt it so many times too but i swear i didnt smell any jackfruits when i tested this frag at the department store the other day. It smelt too generic fresh n sporty. An ok one but nothing special.Perhaps the bottle is the only thing that's attractive.

What people in general forget that,

the whole CK line, from Ck One, Ck Be, Ckin2U for him and her is all about being young, free, fresh, crisp, clean, independent and sexy.
They are never ment to be overpowering, or long lasting.
Rather sprayed generously all over the body, and to be refreshed during the day with some more.

Ck-free is a fresh, aromatic woody.

I love the mixture of the freshness from juniper berries with star anise, it gives a fresh and soft mysterious feeling to the warmth of the coffee at the heart note,
and the balance with the suede from the heart note with the woody and earthy base lends a sunny, warm, happy and a generous modern man.

I too am really disappointed with this one. It's not special at all. All I smell is mint. Smells like a minty chewing-gum. Not a fan. However... the guy in the advertisement... PHHHOOOAAARRR!!! At least they did well choosing him... ;)

A new fragrance by Calvin Klein is a reason to go out to the shops and have a go. This time, it's a disappointment. It's not bad, no, that's not the problem...

Generally there's nothing wrong with producing scents that some people don't like. CK in particular has a number of scents that I'm not fond of, and a couple of scents that I really love. But more alarmingly, I can't spot anything unique about this one.

Even those CK scents that I don't like that much are still recognisable. This one is not. And that's exactly why it's the first true disappointment by Calvin Klein.

Happy New Year to you all :)

For me, Ck free is rather light as pointed by other folks with nice and unique jackfruit smell. But to add a dimension on Ck free from what my nose keeps telling me, it is a jackfruit that stands out on top notes and survive a drying down process. I cannot smell tobacco but I can smell patchoulli and it is really nice and light in here.

All in all, easy-wearing and pleasant fragrance in a well-designed bottle. 9/10 Thank you for reading :)

I tested this and I was quite dissapointed to be honest. On me it did not last more than an hour. I was expecting something more appropriate for the fall/autumn. This is more like a summer fragrance 5/10

well, i cant say a negative view.. to me is just a nice fruity-aromatic fragance. the last olfative base is very comfortable, powdery with a synthetic floral end..i agree is nothing new here but is not bad at all... on my skin was very permanent for hrs and sillage more than ok... so finally, you can choose others.

Oh no CK! I wanted to love this but to me it just smells like all his othe fragrances.

It has the same crisp opening you expect from a CK fragrance then it all goes downhill from there.

I used to have love for CK fragrances (apart from the CKOne Summer Editions, I'm never disappointed with them) but they are extremely boring and generic.

Come on make me love you again!!

I saw this in Dillard's today so of course I had to try it out! It's an ok scent. It's nice and & light, Free is a great name for it.

The initial spray of it smelt so damn good OMG. Initial sprays are sooo tricky though, NEVER base a cologne unless you wear it first... and thank god I did.

Now that it's dried down it seriously just smells like a pack of gum, spearmint to be exact. Longevity isn't the greatest either. When I said light, I really did mean it. It fades quickly and I have to hold my wrist up my nose to smell it.

Don't get me wrong, it's an ok youthful, inexpensive fragrance but that's literally all it is.

I smell it from a magazine stripe, it is very fresh, green and aromatic with woody base note. Very ordinary I can say and typical CK style. I think is appear to be a very casual fragrance for younger generation. Hints: It somehow remind me DIESEL - Only The Brave (80% smell a-like). I like CK simplistic bottle design, CK free's bottle design is one of my favorite!

Update: I've tried this perfume on my skin couple of time since it's launching, it last less than 2 hours on me, be warned that it is very watery and very light. The scent is very casual and not special, think twice if you want something new, special and creative. I will give this 4/10.
