Calvin Klein’s men’s scent Encounter opens with notes of mandarin orange, cardamom and rum. The heart pairs pepper, Egyptian jasmine and patchouli with a heady cognac accord. The trail blends agarwood (a.k.a. oud wood), Atlas cedar and white musks. Perfumers: Pierre Negrin and Honorine Blanc, Firmenich.

At a glance

A mysterious and sensual woody scent


Calvin Klein’s Encounter is a seductive and enigmatic scent for men. It offers a contrast between warmth and cool. Together, these opposites express an unapologetic sense of masculinity… the kind possessed by a ‘determined man who is sure of himself, (…) who stays in control of his insatiable desire’.


Eau de Toilette 1, 1.7 and 3.4 oz.


The rectangular and slightly asymmetrical bottle is garbed in an ‘intense blue’ hue.

    Big surprise: A man who works on oil rigs wears this and he actually got compliments from the other men on the rig. He says he sprays it everywhere - he uses it like an aftershave & loves how great it still smells after hours of use & abuse.

    Mysterious it is. My son just came home wearing this and it is a great scent for a man. It drives his girlfriend crazy. It demonstrates just how difficult it is to judge a perfume based on bottle, raw ingredients and ads. This does have a mild wood smell. It is totally masculine, but you can definitely smell an aquatic accord in it that is spellbinding. Wow. I love it. This is for my man.

    Le flacon me plait beaucoup. Il ne me reste plus qu'à tester le parfum dont la composition associe des ingrédients qui révèlent un goût certain pour le risque. Quel en sera le résultat olfactif ?

    Encounter is a woody and mysterious fragrance for men. First, I was surprised by the ad in which you can see the actor Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). For me, this fragrance is something to wear at night or for special occasions. In the same trend, I would advise Bang by Marc Jacobs that is more peppery. If you like the mysterious side of Encounter, try M7 Oud by YSL. If you like the earthy facets of Encounter, you can also try Terre d’Hermès.
