Love potion number One
If one of the main accords is listed as balsamic, it is a pretty sure bet that I like it. And with Obsession it is LOVE. I always have a back up bottle, because I dread the day that I might not be able to get her anymore. Now, I usually wear her just at home and so far didn't dare to take her with... Read more

Spice magnet
I really love this perfume and I don't know how blind I was not to have spotted this so long. It is a superb smell which lasts all day and if preferably wearable for winter. The incense along with spices makes it a total mysterious and rare perfume. My husband likes it too.

Obsession-Riding Boots, Cable Knit Sweaters and Levis
First whiff-adoration! No matter what others say, I will always love this perfume. I truly believe all the hype and commercialization has turned people off through the years and that is a true shame. It's a beautiful fragrance that should not be taken lightly. A warm, powdery, sweet scent with... Read more

A night at the Opera
Sometimes when you spray a scent it evokes a scene in your mind. To me the scent of Obsession takes me to the lobby of the La Scala Opera in 1921. The floor is covered with plush oriental rugs and dim light radiates from the golden fixtures on the wall. Glamorous women in beaded gowns and jewels... Read more

Skank tested. Skank approved.
Today I wore CK Obsession for the first time in a long time, and I wore with an entirely new reference in mind - skank. So, with skank in mind, what does CK Obsession smell like? 70% Dana Tabu (vintage) 30% Femme Rochas I put Obsession on, and Tabu immediately came to mind. However, as it... Read more

I'm Bringing Sexy Back
A modern classic that is smooth, sexy, sultry and sensual. It's all about exotic spices, incense, sandalwood, musk, oakmoss and in the distance, florals that surrendered their innocence to the sensual attack of this smooth mixture of sex in a bottle. Hours of passion carelessly wrapped up in... Read more

Heady spices
Obsession, well what can I say, a true masterpiece is what you are. This fragrance is everything that you could ever want in an oriental. It's spicy, warm, incensey, sensual, beautiful, rich and utterly breath-taking. Unfortunately Obsession does tend to turn away a lot of people with its... Read more

More retro than classic
Obsession is a real blast, no doubt about that. Intensive, unmistakable, loud. And beautiful, too. On my skin it develops as a mixture of musk, spices, amber and musk that is vibrantly erotic. Did I mention musk? And spices? Obsession is obviously no current fragrance but a child of its time -... Read more
