About this deal

Launched in 1985, Calvin Klein Obsession is a lasting and powerful oriental fragrance that is as appealing today as it was at launch. Total duration is longer than I initially expected, no less than 5-6 hours with only a moderate application (3-4 sprays total, neck and wrists).

Overall I get liberal sillage for the first few minutes only, followed by what I'd consider to be arm's length for maybe 2-3 hours, drawing back to about 12" after that. It seems that after some risky things (Encounter, Reveal) Calvin Klein finally got their bestseller.

To my way of thinking, the last decent thing CK offered was "Truth," in 2002, and even it has fallen by the wayside. Because whenever I've been obsessed with someone, or something, intensity of feeling, of concentration, of desire, is paramount. I smelled this in Cosmo August issue, and I really like it, like others have said it does have similarities to CK BE, I also see this as unisex.

An intoxicating blends of florals and spices with an earthly, warm base; haunting, intensely feminine and lasting. With the exception of Obsession Sheer, which is a total gem, the flankers seem to have little relationship to the original. They work nicely with my body chemistry, while “female” sweet fragrances usually turn intolerably, cloyingly sweet.The most noticeable opening to dry-down changes in this fragrance is the very fruity and citrusy opening, these notes are at the top closely followed by the spices; as the fragrance dries down, these fruity notes significantly dissipate, and in their place, the fragrance brings the sweet resinous touches of the labdanum and cinnamon, projected by the leather, vanilla, and ambroxan. By the time I had gone back to my car, Obsessed had caught in the back of my throat and I quickly got nauseas. The leather that initially was a whiff starts developing, nothing bold, but projecting and aromatic; similarly, the cedar and labdanum join with fragrance with fresh woody and sweet, ambery accords respectively; the ambroxan also joins the blend with its ambery and powdery projecting note but not as strong as the vanilla; the cinnamon joins the vanilla with a sweet-spicy touch. I've never met a CK scent that I absolutely hated, plus I probably needed at least one sweet scent in my arsenal (now that my Cool Water Intense is gone). Many products with the Premium Beauty badge are also used by professionals in salons and spas but are designed and available for home use.
