Elnett with vanilla and nutmeg~ or something more? Review with images

AdvantagesA long lasting fragrance that projects really well

DisadvantagesA strong fragrance that may not suit all tastes

"...created it is reported that Calvin Klein didn't want to create a fragrance using an 'old fashioned recipe', he strove to create a fragrance that offered 'something direct, sensuous and provocative' as he felt that was the way in which he wanted to represent the way he felt about the modern female fragrance buyer. I feel that the fragrance certainly does have a very individual feel about it that at the time was new and different, however for me it ..." Read review

Older Than Me But Still Beautiful!

Advantagesoverall scent, unique, staying power, price

Disadvantagesbottle

"Calvin Klein is a premium fashion and beauty brand. ===Obsession=== Obsession is a collection of fragrances for men and women. This collection is said to reveal the 'deeper, darker side' of Calvin Klein perfumes. For the ladies, there are three fragrances available - Obsession, Secret Obsession and Obsession Night. 'Who hasn't felt passion beyond reason?' - Calvin Klein. Obsession was released in Spring 1985 and still popular 27 years on. Obsession ..." Read review

A tinker of a perfume!

AdvantagesSexy, seductive and long lasting on and off the skin

DisadvantagesNot a great bottle, may be too strong for some people

"This is one of my must haves on my dressing table and as soon as I get to half full (or half empty depending on how you look at life lol) of my bottle I rush out and purchase another one asap! It's a real firm favourite of mine and speaks volumes about who I am in my opinion. I had my first bottle bought for me in 1985 when the fragrance first came out, I do love my Mummy lol! It's changed very little in design bottle wise over the years and the ..." Read review

Classic Obsession

AdvantagesStrong, unique fragrance. Cost. Lastability.

DisadvantagesConsidered a bit old fashioned.

"Calvin Klein's Obsession, Eau de Parfum is one of my favourite perfumes and I've been buying it for around 20 years or so. I think it's one of those perfumes that, with time, has become a little old fashioned to buy, but I do remember when it first came out and it was one of the most popular fragrances - but I believe that classic fragrances are timeless and if it works then it just works period. One of the great things about this fragrance going ..." Read review

A bodice-ripping sort of perfume...

AdvantagesIt smells gorgeous

DisadvantagesIt can be a little strong when first applied

"...preferred but to no avail... Calvin Klein is one of the fore-runners of all things that I dislike about the trendy designer label clique; I know it sounds petty but I really didn't want to succumb to the allure of such a massive corporate company. However, once I had tried Obsession on at a perfume counter I was absolutely hooked and no matter which perfume I tried on after this fateful day, it just didn't compare. So I swept my principles under the ..." Read review

My Night Time Obsession

AdvantagesIt is going to be an extra special evening

DisadvantagesIf I am not wearing it, you are not special

"...of the man himself Mr Calvin Klein. So who is going to dispute those words? Not me that is for sure. This fragrance has to be my ‘extra special’ perfume. Do you have one? You know for the special person in your life, or that special occasion you are going to. This is mine. This fragrance first came onto the market in 1985 and is still going strong. When I hold this in my hands I cannot help but smile. The box it comes in, I would say is ..." Read review

I'm Obsessed with Obsession! Review with images

AdvantagesSmells gorgeous!

DisadvantagesPrice!

"...for women available in the Calvin Klein range. ==Why? == I first encountered Calvin Kleins' Obsession on an evening out with friends and I caught a whiff of this scent and took an instant liking to it! After questioning my friend on what it was I decided that while it was very nice it has a high price tag of around the £50 mark which kind of put it out of my reach and to the back of my mind. It wasn't until last year when I was going to a lot of ..." Read review

Will out live Calvin Klein

AdvantagesGets you noticed

DisadvantagesCan be a little heavy if applied too liberally

"Ever since my older sister first dabbed a tiny drop on my teenage wrist I have been hooked, and over a decade later I am still wearing it. I have had complete strangers walk up to me in the street and comment, I have had men 'sniff' me in the pub, and I have had taxi drivers remember me purely by my fragrance. I was wearing it when I met my husband, and I will continue until it no longer exists! CK has created many fragrances since this timeless classic, ..." Read review

Obsessed you will be

AdvantagesA great perfume that lingers

Disadvantagestoo much is over powering

"...just come across Obsession by Calvin Klien purely by accident in my local Boots I was acually after a bottle of Eternity but sprayed myself with this instead. At first I did actually think phewwww bit too strong for me, but after about half an hour of smelling this some what heady and oriental fragrance, I was hooked and marched straight back to Boots to buy a bootle. Obsession is the kind of perfume that little is more. This is not the kind of ..." Read review

All time favourite

AdvantagesWonderful fragrance

DisadvantagesOther women wear it

"Recently, while visiting a friend, she spontaneously remarked how much she liked hanging my jackets because of the fragrance my clothes give off. Now, not only is it useful to have a perfume that encourages others to hang your clothes up, but Obsession is a fragrance that I want to be associated with. I hate those perfumes that smell of soap or that awful chemical approximation of fresh air. I want my scent to leave behind me a memory that fits ..." Read review

I just smell to good!!!!!!! Review with images

AdvantagesSmell like a goddess

DisadvantagesNone

"Well as one of my previous ops says “We all have our little obsessions”. Ok then some of us happen to have a few never read of any rules against such a thing have you. Like most women I have a tendency to like my perfumes. I find I tend to stick to the ole favourites I am not one for trying all these new ones I know what I like so I stick to it. I find I never tire of my perfumes I have a few that have to be in the bathroom as I like to have a choice. ..." Read review

Contemporary classic

Advantagesenduring modern classic

Disadvantagespoor complementary range

"Many predicted that Obsession, like certain other scents which came to the fore in the 80s, would disappear once that decade was well behind us. Well, the longlivity and enduring popularity of this scent has certainly confounded those critics. It may not be quite as popular as it was, but those of us who wear it because we love it, rather than because it's trendy, can only be pleased about that! I love Obsession because it's a true oriental but with ..." Read review

Obsession

AdvantagesVery sexy spicy scent

DisadvantagesMay be a bit strong for some people

"This has been a recent addition to my perfume collection, and i can certainly say that it is now one of my favourites. Although Obsession has been around for some time, i have only really recently sampled it whilst out on my travels around the perfume counters, and now i wouldn't be without it. Not for the faint hearted this one, it's quite a strong perfume with a spicy aroma - very sexy indeed! I got a little gift set of this which had a 30ml spray ..." Read review

An acquired taste

Advantagesstrong and long lasting

Disadvantagessickly and over powering if you use too much

"This is a nice perfume, it's not the nicest and certainly not for every day wear - well not for me anyway. It's not a day perfume, more for the evenings as it's not that light. You don't need very much of it as it's strong and lasts well. It's sort of floral but is quite heavy and too much on smells a bit sickly. It's a very deep smell and I often can't tell the difference between the male and female versions - they are very similar. There just seems ..." Read review
