The first magazine advertisement has been found for Calvin Klein’s men’s fragrance Encounter featuring Alexander Skarsgård. And the first magazine is….the September 2012 issue of Details Magazine! (Jake Gyllenhaal is on the cover.) You can find the ad on pages 155 and 156 of the magazine.*
The ad is a full photo on front and a full photo with a chance to smell the fragrance on the back. Encounter is described as “Masculine. Intriguing. Seductive. An addictive blend of freshness, warm cognac and sensual woods.” (My thoughts? I thought it smelled clean, and then it made my mouth water. Yum.)
We will keep updating this post as we find other magazines that contain the ads. If you spot one before we do, contact Jenna@AlexSkarsgard.net. Tack!
You can order Calvin Klein’s Encounter here.

*UPDATE!! These ads may or may not be on these pages as they seem to differ between store purchased mags and subscriptions…they may only be in the September subscription magazines for now, but since the fragrance comes out in September, the ads should be running in the October magazines that start hitting the shelves in September. Please be sure you check before you buy!
