Obsession by Calvin Klein is a Oriental Spicy fragrance for women. I have had people stop me in malls and various other stores asking me what perfume I am wearing. Spicy, sweet,warm,inviting, sensual and cosy scent. This could easily be the scent hor holidays and christmas! I haven't owned a bottle in years and recently picked one up. The opening is green and mossy and then the spices and smokiness start to develop. Plus 1 EDP and the Other Two SUPER Vintage "Cologne Spray" bottles with the Built In Sprayer... All The Way To EVE herself In The Garden of EDEN scented in the Fruit, Flowers, Incense and Spices of EDEN! Top notes are green notes, mandarin orange, vanilla, peach, basil, bergamot and lemon; middle notes are spices, coriander, sandalwood, orange blossom, jasmine, oakmoss, cedar and rose; base notes are amber, musk, civet, vanilla, vetiver and incense. i think it can be a good introduction into spicy perfumes. My grandmother wore Opium,red door and this perfume when I was a kid and still kinda does. Interesting reading the reviews saying people wore this in high school and college; hard to imagine the 16-22 year old set rocking this nowadays, to be honest. I have been wearing it since the 90's and it works great with my body chemistry. Just smooooth sweet incense/syrup/vanilla/spices/cinnamon. I also smell something woody and slightly musky, but the vanilla dominates. Amazing for holidays, relaxing at home, winter nights out, dates, and sensual enough for personal moments :) Obsession was the first designer perfume I ever bought for myself. I currently have Four Vintage Bottles of Obsession, 1 being a .25oz of the Pure PARFUM in the Iconic "kidney bean" shaped bottle!! Almost from a Different Time, Like something CLEOPATRA would have bathed in to Seduce All her subjects or Even Further Back in Time...When I was about 11 or 12--tall for my age, and able to wear my mother's tan trench coat in what was probably a hilarious display of attempted sophistication--I strolled into my local mall's department store, making a bee line towards the perfume counter.
The contemporary version is a bit lighter and greener in the opening, the central stage of developent is a little less dark, the smoke is less thick and dense (but it is still very much here), and deep ambery-vanilla drydown is as strikingly beautiful as in the vintage version, maybe just a little more descrete. but nowadays it is civetone and other synthetic compounds, so enjoy Obsession. However, it grew on me, though not sure yet if I will re-buy it once my current bottle runs out. If you buy vintage, probably it will be poor civet's musk (the animal had to be killed for the manufacture). When I first sprayed it, I thought I would not like it- the first sniff was a strong, powdery hit that I thought would turn into what I thought of as a "Bank of England" smell (edit: when I first wrote this review I didn't know about the conversations surrounding labeling fragrances that way).I found that in small amounts, it blooms into a really nice, powdery vanilla amber that is not at all the monster I turned it into that day. This is Calvin Klein's darling muse, his oriental masterpiece which rubs shoulders with Habinata, Coco, Opium and Ambre Fetiche and is a queen in her own right.
Thankyou Obessession for the most blissfull olfactory experience.
I am so happy that I decided to purchase the fragrances I wore in my youth.
