It was 1994. Kate had met Johnny, Nirvana was Unplugged and a certain Mrs Mia Wallace – black-bobbed and rocking Chanel Rouge Noir – had hit the dance floor at Jack Rabbit Slims. This was the backdrop to my mid-teens and it was right then, bang in the middle of those formative years, that CK One – Calvin Klein’s unisex fragrance – hit the scene. It remains, to this day, my most vivid scent memory. It was seminal. I don’t wear it now – it’s too much of the time for me. But I think it will remain my most treasured scent moment forever.
