About this deal

Essential Cookies are required to make this site work, without them your browsing experience would not be as good as we want you to have. Instead of a laundry soap lavender, Obsessed has a true, biting lavender note that is softened by sage. As the legendary campaign with Kate Moss and Mario Sorrenti approaches its 25th anniversary, OBSESSED utilizes never-before-seen imagery from that time and personal biography to further explore and evoke the idea of memory, past love and present iconography. After a half hour or so, some floral shades start to appear, still topped off with the lemon and grapefruit notes. Packaged in a distinctive ovular bottle, it is recommended for wear as an evening fragrance or for special occasions.

The projection and longevity are both above average (I'm still catching fairly strong whiffs nearly 8 hours later), and this is a welcome change from recent Calvin Klein releases. Obsessed can get too dense and heady (the musk is very noticeable) if you overspray, but misted once it smells fresh, a touch spicy, and the aromatic notes are softened and blurred by the musk, making it so feminine and sidewalk-wearable. I'm not actually sure why CK released a women's and men's version, as a man can easily pull off the women's version.

It's fair to say, few fragrances before or since have matched Obsession, both in terms of worldwide fame, inspiring emotion and creating eternally loyal fans. What I get is a lot of rich, creamy vanilla with ambroxan and patchouli playing so far back that you might not even notice they're there, except for the occasional tell-tale wisp. I really like this fragrance and I find it to be a refreshing different offer compared to the typical. On the other hand this is a very nice fragrance, refreshing and unique but like all CK frags quality is questionable.

An instant favorite right out of the box due to a prominent lavender note and a pleasant fresh vibe! This intense, powerful amber fragrance combines an intoxicating blend of florals and exotic spices with an earthy, warm, base.Very interesting scent, it is clean, sweet and quite feminine in a way, feeling like pleasantly spiced clean laundry. After that, you get a very musky and lavender-y purple flowers (wisteria and lilac) scent, which is extremely pleasant compared to its sharp opening. To me it's very similar to CK women and the CK be is slightly there, the herbal notes are very subtle, it's smooth and not pungent. It's nothing like the god awful ambroxan found in Dior Sauvage or the Prada Luna Rossa line, both of which make me nauseous. I like this as a fresh palette cleanser after a lot of sweet or floral perfumes as it smells clean and bright.
