Evaporating
Posted by on
At first I thought maybe I was crazy - I returned the evaporting bottle of Euphoria perfume, I'm sure the sales clerk thought I was nuts, just thought maybe I had a bad bottle. But I received a new bottle and it is also evaporating. I love the perfume but can't pay a nice price to watch it evaporate.

This is bizarre but very TRUE!

You are not crazy. Evaporation is a reality.
Mmm... Perfume and cologne...Wielding the power to entice and soothe, and incite the senses depending on the type being worn (and who's wearing it). Is the cap able to be securely tightened? This sounds silly, but works - try sealing the bottle when not in use in a plastic baggy, not pretty I know, but serves the purpose of preserving fragrance. Another trick is to put vaseline or some other thick substance around the cap edges to seal any gaps - messy but works.

Not sure if you are aware of this OP, but you should never store your perfume on top of your dresser, or on bathroom vanities. The lighting will cause evaporation over time. It needs to be kept in the dark, like a dresser drawer, because they can and will evaoporate when not properly kept.

I've kept all my perfumes and body spray's in my dresser, and never ever had anything evaporate.

I have Euphoria and will check on it when I get home from work in the morning. I never really pay attention to the levels.

Calvin Klein Advertisement has taken it too far
Posted by on
NEW YORK, NY -- Picture this. Your daughter has reached the age in which she is listening more to music and likes her own artists. Who wouldn't want their daughter to like Taylor Swift. She sees Taylor Swift on the cover of Rolling Stone and very much wants the magazine. So you let her get that issue. Before you even start the car you hear from the back seat "Mom, look at this!" You turn to see the advertisement on the second page of Rolling Stone. Pornography! With the crease in the magazine the girl's shorts are hard to see so she looks totally nude, as she lay on two men, one tongue kissing her, the other man she is laying on has his hand going down her shorts while her naked chest is in front of his face. There is a third man laying next to them all holding the top of his jeans open. This is what, 3 guys 1 girl sex to sell jeans? I guess Calvin Klein wanted to see how far they can take it and I guess they can take it pretty far.
I am a very open minded woman and love the artistic way Calvin Klein ads show beauty and wonderful photography. Some of it is a bit racy and that is fine. However this to me has crossed the line. I will never buy from this company again and will encourage others to boycott them as well. What else can I do. When two women in my salon saw this one teared up and the other was enraged. It is not only me that views this as unacceptable.
Calvin Klein you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Well, the idea was to get your attention. I guess it did. There is so much nastiness going on out there anymore I don't know how anyone manages to raise decent, moral, sweet children. I don't condone censorship, but how about a little good taste, CK?
Venice09 on 2010-04-21:
I raised a daughter and wouldn't buy her a RS magazine regardless of who was on the cover unless I thought she was old enough and mature enough to see and understand what was inside.

I haven't seen the ad, and I don't know if it was produced specifically for RS where it might be appropriate for its readers. Maybe your complaint should be directed to Taylor Swift for appearing on the cover of a magazine with controversial ads. Or maybe it is Rolling Stone's fault for putting Taylor Swift on the cover of a magazine that is not appropriate for all ages. I don't know. But I do know that the buck stops with the parents. They are the ones responsible for doing the best they can to avoid exposing their children to what they deem inappropriate.

I agree that some ads are in bad taste, and Calvin Klein is no stranger to negative feedback, but that hasn't stopped them from pushing the envelope in the past. This strategy is obviously working for them.

Good taste disappeared in the 60's...
Anonymous on 2010-04-21:
Rolling Stone magazine has never been main stream, so I would expect them to have racier ads. My suggestion would be that next time you should screen the reading material before buying. There are probably plenty of "teen" magazines that would be more appropriate. They probably all have articles on Taylor Swift with no objectionable ads.

Appalling
Posted by on
I am a 28 year old male. I am appalled at your new ads. I don't even have kids, but I can't imagine my nieces seeing one of these ads! Your selling cloths, yet for some reason you think that everyone is going to respond well to an ad that obviously is trying to push the lines of morality. I can't even begin to think of how offended I would be if I were religious!

POOR TAIST!!!

P.S. It is sad to me that I will have to get rid of so much of my wardrobe, but I simply can't support a company that I think is promoting such a disgusting immoral message to the public!

Anyone seen the ad the Op is talking about? I assume it is worse than the stuff CK has been doing for years??
Anonymous on 2010-03-15:
I have not a clue, Raven. Can't be any worse than the other crap CK puts out there, commercial wise.
Crown Jules on 2010-03-15:
I Googled "new Calvin Klein ads" and this is what I came up with:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/11/eva-mendes-new-calvin-kle_n_419006.html

http://www.stylelist.com/2010/02/03/kellan-lutz-vamps-in-new-calvin-klein-x-underwear-ad-campaign/

Sorry, I don't know how to make them clickable.

Anyway, CK has been doing this kind of stuff for years and they haven't gone out of business yet and I don't think it's going to happen any time soon. Morality is subjective and while you have the right to be offended they have the right to try to draw consumers who have a different perspective.

Sex sells. It always has.
Anonymous on 2010-03-16:
I remember way back when, when Brook Shields did an ad when she was very young (I'm not sure if she was even a teenager). They have been using these types of ads forever. A good policy is if you don't like someone's ads, then don't buy whatever it is their selling. That's the only power you have over it.
Anonymous on 2010-03-20:
"Sex sells" - I assume you're talking about the world's "oldest profession?"
Anonymous on 2010-03-30:
Calvin Klein ads have always been geared toward adults. I find their ads no worse than a half naked woman in a bikini advertising a car or a Harley.

Pornography
Posted by on
I had the most unfortunate luck to view one of your ads. I am firmly committed to never purchase any product with the Calvin Kline label ever again.
You have become utterly depraved. How dare you show 3 young men and a woman in such a composition.
I am asking you what will you do next to sell some denim clothes. On the road to hell will you next include younger children etc. There really is obviously no bottom to your judgment. No wonder so many of our teens are depressed.
Good luck, you need it, the road to hell is wide and you are on it.

Do you know what pornography is?
PepperElf on 2009-06-24:
by that mentality Maxim magazine would also be xxx
but since there's no genitalia being shown, and sex is only hinted at its not porn.

take all the models' clothes off and put them into actual sexual positions... then there'd be a case to call it porn

right now it's just suggestive.
goduke on 2009-06-24:
Some might call it art.

or advertising.
MRM on 2009-06-24:
Yes, this is a display of art, not pornography.
PepperElf on 2009-06-24:
actually ... art sometimes shows even more nakedness.

Look at the statue of David - Michelangelo didn't leave any detail out, right down to a bit of hair above David's genitals.

Or Vigeland Park in Oslo - every single statue there is nude.

Nudity and art have been together for centuries.
Mario The Great on 2009-06-24:
I think the OP was born sometime around the 1850's. Showing any sign of skin is punishable by a stint in the brothel. It's the closed mentality of not being able to accept change that drives me nuts. Perhaps the OP should ummmmmmmm, look away. Maybe not. It is rather difficult to stop looking at it and being envious of such a lucid display. These people remind me of the mother in "Waterboy."
PepperElf on 2009-06-24:
Back in the days when showing some ankle was scandalous
BokiBean on 2009-06-24:
True goduke.

Its a big of a strech to call this art. Its just a bunch of teenagers with their clothes half off grinding on each other. That's my take.

The statue of David is art...this, sells jeans.
MRM on 2009-06-24:
Ms Bean, I hope you had a nice beauty rest last night and I hope that you will have a fine Wednesday morning!
BokiBean on 2009-06-24:
You are a peach of a person and I'm feeling very chipper and refreshed! Hope you have a glorious Wed. as well! And don't get too hot out there.
BokiBean on 2009-06-24:
Hahaha edited by me, because I misread Mario's post to read 1950's instead of 1850's. :D

Boy he got an earful..and now I'm erasing it.

Poor Quality Return
Posted by on
Bought a few items for my wife and this shirt was of extremely poor quality. Returned with their free prepaid return label. Was expecting my refund of $14 and instead got less than $7 returned. No where on the paperwork for the return does it state that they are going to charge me for shipping back. Very unhappy, I could have shipped it back for half of what they are charging me. Contacted customer service and was told sorry but to bad. I think it is funny that in this economic times that any company would not strive at 100% satisfaction to keep a customer.

If they won't satisfy me then they will lose me forever as a customer and I will have no choice but to contest with my credit card.

katie kaboom on 2009-04-09:
I don't know, that is kind of a ripoff that they take $8 off the refund just to ship it. I may actually be leaning towards agreeing with the OP, and I almost never do that.
goduke on 2009-04-09:
It's disclosed. Can't be a ripoff if it's disclosed before you even buy the product. I'm pretty sure that the OP checked that box that says "I agree with the terms and conditions". If they didn't take time to actually read the terms and conditions, whose fault is that?
Anonymous on 2009-04-09:
Nice reply goduke! The $8 charge is well explained. On a $14 item it may make more sense to sell the item in a yard sale or donate it than to give up over half of the purchase price to send it back.
Slimjim on 2009-04-09:
Agree with Doc, For $6 more, you could have kept the shirt and as Goduke noted, the terms are spelled out. You must have seen them in order to get the info to return it to start with. Not a valid complaint here at all.

Socks that sucks
Posted by on
Purchased a pack of three black pair of socks at Century XXI, in New York. Next day I used them. By night I took a flight back to Miami. When I took off my shoes on the plain the socks were already broken !!!

Since they are not cheap and only last for a few hours, should be the most expensive socks in the whole world.

I never thought such a famous brand could make something this bad, with such a poor quality !!!! Unbelievable.

I still have two pairs.

I think more and more companies have been moving to cheaper production lines in the last few years. My wife used to buy most of her clothes from Old Navy, it was affordable and decent quality. But lately the quality has taken a turn for the worse. Most of her garments are shot after a few washes. So now she doesn't shop there much any more... unless it is for baby clothes since that only gets a few months usage anyway before our daughter outgrows it....
BEJ on 2010-03-30:
How do socks break? Was the elastic shot and they no longer stay up? Were the toes or heels worn out already after one wearing?
Anonymous on 2010-03-30:
Expensive might not always be better. I've bought socks at Target and Walmart... and they've lasted a long time.
Sparticus on 2010-03-30:
I actually get my socks from Target as well, and they have lasted me quite a long time...
i_am_canadian on 2010-03-30:
This is interesting to know because Calvin Klein socks were, at one point the only socks I would buy since they lasted the longest. They were a bit expensive at about 4 dollars a pair at Pantorama, but they were worth it. Now like so many other brands, it sounds like they're nothing but garbage. But still at a premium price of course.
Venice09 on 2010-03-30:
Hanes makes good socks at a reasonable price. I buy them for my son, and they last a long time.

Complaint
Posted by on
You ads are repulsing. I will never buy another Calvin Klein product. The recent billboard in NY has put your company over the top. Why should people who have morales be subjected to the likes of your companies ads. They have always been a little over the top, but you have really put it over the top with this shameful ad.

Clean up your company...Do you think this life style is good for our young people today?

4-Way Ad
Posted by on
What in the world is wrong with you? Who are you marketing to? I suppose you were probably shocked at Sarah Palin's pregnant teenage daughter. What exactly is it you are trying to sell? Oh and not to mention that every comment on this page so far refers to your product as "poor Quality". I guess you have to reach as low as you do in order to get a sale. Very sad.

good post. thanks for sharing your opinion.

Why should I take a stance over something that doesn't bother me?

Unless you'd like to go back to the media-standards of the old days? the 50s, or perhaps the standards of the 1800s?
