Eau De P.O.S.: A new hybrid fragrance by Calvin Klein

Banking on the not-so-recent popularity of digital audio, opportunist Calvin Klein is kicking off his latest "We Are One" campaign with a commemorative bottle of its classic CK1 fragrance that features a removable speaker at its base.

Banking on the not-so-recent popularity of digital audio, opportunist Calvin Klein is kicking off his latest "We Are One" campaign with a commemorative bottle of the classic CK1 fragrance that features a removable speaker at its base.

Calvin Klein's been a fashion staple since 1968, but we're not sure how much experience the company has with high-end audio. If I had to guess, I'd put my paycheck on "absolutely none whatsoever," and if I'm right, the audio quality of the speaker is probably about as good as a front door intercom.

The 100mL bottle sells here for $50 and includes the removable speaker base as well, but no word yet on how it'll attach to your device. Again, if pressed to guess, I'd go with "awkwardly dangling 1/8" plug." Don't get me wrong, I love the smell of CK1 (I wore it all throughout fifth grade--event had a T-shirt) but it's hard to feel classy while your bottle of cologne is screeching "Single Ladies" at you.

Smells like the future.
