About this deal

Many products with the Premium Beauty badge are also used by professionals in salons and spas but are designed and available for home use. Top notes are Citruses, elemi, Neroli and Bergamot; middle notes are Lavender, Sage, Violet Leaf, Orange Blossom, Lily-of-the-Valley and Rose; base notes are Musk, Ambrette (Musk Mallow) and Iso E Super. This is a very masculine fragrance, which I know is part of the concept of this perfume, but I don't care for it.

Instead of a laundry soap lavender, Obsessed has a true, biting lavender note that is softened by sage. Often referred to as “the 80s in a bottle” because it so perfectly captured the glamour and sexuality of the decade's excessive lifestyle, Obsession for Men earned a notorious reputation for its unforgettably provocative, groundbreaking advertising. Strong notes of jasmine, orange blossom, and vetiver at the heart of the scent are flanked with refreshing mandarin bergamot and vanillin, alongside earthy, green base notes of oakmoss, incense, and musk. You get all the aromatic lavender and bergamot zestiness of CK1 but with a warm and lovely lightly spiced amber underneath, from Obsession.I would recommend that you give it a try before purchasing, but I am giving it a good review it just needs some time to settle on skin.

Genders are subverted and layered with the traditionally feminine note - dark vanilla - harnessed for the men’s fragrance, which together with amber and woods strengthen the sense of masculinity in the men’s fragrance. Something to note is that I LOVE YSL’s Libre in all of her three ways lol (EDP, Intense, EDT) and I had no idea this smells THE EXACT SAME! This might sound totally crazy, but when spraying, this takes me back to being 11 years old, when I had a cheap dupe (SAVAGE, I know! It's nothing like the god awful ambroxan found in Dior Sauvage or the Prada Luna Rossa line, both of which make me nauseous.Enjoy the polarity of feminine vs masculine, the past and the present, day and night, the sun and the moon. I like this as a fresh palette cleanser after a lot of sweet or floral perfumes as it smells clean and bright. At the heart of OBSESSED FOR MEN is the memory of a past love, triggered by the scent of another on the skin. I'll have to wear this again but the opening was very pleasant, I have no issue with abroxan and the boring aspects weren't too boring and the creamy drydown is nice.

Now normally the fresh, unusual, hard to place, top notes, coupled with a crowd pleasing generic heart and a warm (or 'sensual' as they will market it as) vanilla/synth amber drydown sounds like my idea of a horrible frgrance trying to be all things to all people and doing none of them right. On the other hand this is a very nice fragrance, refreshing and unique but like all CK frags quality is questionable.

This intense, powerful oriental fragrance combines an intoxicating blend of florals and exotic spices with an earthy, warm, base. I see it as a day scent in spring / summer on a guy 20 - 40 years, it is definitely for the younger crowd. HOWEVER, Calvin Klein Obsessed for men is one of the rarer instances that I actually kind of don't mind despite many of the notes aforementioned. The fragrance feels casual, comforting, delectable, dense, gourmand, inviting, mature, mild, inviting, masculine, modern, leathery, resinous, rich, sweet, syrupy, warm, woody and very pleasant. If at any time you would like to opt out from marketing, you can visit the Privacy Preferences page and select the relevant options.

At the heart of OBSESSED FOR WOMEN is the memory of a past love, triggered by the scent of another on the skin.Launched in 2017, Calvin Klein Obsessed is the reinvention of the iconic fragrance for men and women. 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. It was a bit jarring at first spray but by dry down it definitely started to remind me of highschool.
