All I could smell on her and in her car was this scent.It was very strong but it was also a comforting scent.For some reason every time I buy a bottle for myself I end up not liking it and end up selling it. 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). The ultimate in warm, comfort, cozy winter perfumes. I still want to try the new Obsession just out of curiosity. The problem is, I am not a fan of the initial green note upon spraying. I tested a sample of Obsession that I had and I instantly fell in love!
When I get paid soon I will be buying another bottle. Warm cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, other spices, amber, and civet! I get sandalwood, cinnamon, and lime peels up front, then get vanilla, bitter orange, cedar, incense, and amber. 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...
I went back too Kohl’s and bought my granddaughter the outfit that I forgot too get last nite. Obsession is such a sexy beast of a perfume I’m in love all over again. Good staying power and sillage, especially considering I'm using stuff that was open with no idea how it was stored. 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!
A pity, because I totally love the scent, so nice and different from modern fruity florals. Reading the reviews had made me believe that I would love this fragrance, but I just don’t. It is spicy but has a sweet side to it that doesn't work very well. I was expecting it to be spicier, but it is actually safe. 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 a few others but these two are the ones I tend to reach for the most. a combination of Dana's Tabu and YSL's Opium Less spicy than Tabu Less smokey than Opium mixed in its own way for me this smells more oriental than both Tabu and Opium and nothing like Must de Cartier Md C has rosewood inside which is identical but anyway, a like for me for the price and the product i think this one is so classic Obsession was my signature scent for about 12 years, so I'm pretty sure I remember it quite well... I must have liked it then, but later I gave it up for CKOne- which my high school/college boyfriend liked. And from THAT my obsession veered from gourmand to vintage potions. Alright, time to buy Obsession, even if it's a cheap $10 smaller bottle. The new one is thin with a nasty green-ness to it that stays about ten minutes.
EDIT: Maybe something changed in my head or I'm just applying loads of it (6-8 sprays), but now I'm getting nice longevity. There is a cloying sweet note that permeates throughout the whole thing and it throws the composition way off balance. i think it can be a good introduction into spicy perfumes. I have been wearing Obsession since the 90's and it works great with my body chemistry. I get compliments on Obsession all the time, it lasts from morning until evening, and it's very inexpensive. I bought this again a few days ago and I must say I don't understand the complaints about the reforrmulation... I think I wore it because my best friend did, and she wore it because her older sister did. Then I spent many years with NO PERFUME (the horror) and out of the blue I asked for Fantasy for Xmas. ) Fantasy snow-balled into a full on, gourmand obsession... (not always a vintage concentration, but perfumes that have been around forever and smell like a different era) After buying Youth Dew and Tabu (both of which I wrote off and regret now. Hate it, and I hate that many never got to smell the original and call this atrocity wonderful. Unbeatable in sillage and longevity for me, Obsession, I spray on my bathrobe and I can still smell it 2 weeks later, I love the scent, but if you don't...would be very trying....
The moment I pass by people and they get a whiff of it,they start rubbing their noses.
And I make people turn their heads either in the worst or best way possible.(Hence the title)And this is a heavy hitter but under tropical weather,it pulls it in and closes up the aroma to the point that it's no really cloying,and will perform better once you come in an air conditioned place like the mall.
Many years later I purchased a small bottle of this for a very reasonable price and upon smelling Obsession thats when I remembered that day.
This fragrance is spicy and woody and on my skin it lasts a long time.
I'm now on the search for a vintage bottle to see how it differs. I never used to like obsession but lately I can’t help it.
Starts a bit sharp and green, with echos of 'Safari' but soon mellows to a warm amber. There's a touch of plastic in there but nothing serious. But it's reasonably priced, so you can be generous!
I feel this way for a lot of perfumes as it seems I either have terrible luck or many vintages just have that "off"/"old" note that always makes me wrinkle my nose a bit and can mask the nuances of a fragrance that would otherwise be present in a fresh bottle.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
