Obsessed with the New CK Scent
Remember the Calvin Klein fragrance Obsession from the 90s? It’s hard to forget! The iconic scent which was released in 1993 featured 18-year-old Kate Moss in a series of black and white photos taken by her then boyfriend Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti. Fast forward 24 years later and this much-loved fragrance has received a reboot for the modern gent of today, that’s right! Introducing the latest fragrance for men by Calvin Klein Obsessed.
Name: Calvin Klein Obsessed for Men
Fragrance notes: Oro Blanco Grapefruit, Sichuan Pepper, Black Cardamom, Cedar Leaves, Labdanum Firnat, Blonde Leather, Patchouli, Cœur Black Vanilla Infusion and Ambrox Super.
Described as: As an oriental, woody fragrance for men. It features a combination of warm and dark notes which have been blended with the sweetness of black vanilla to create a contemporary and masculine scent. Ambrox is the hero in this scent which cuts through all the fragrance layers leaving a warm woody impression on the skin.
Wear it: Obsessed is the perfect autumn all-rounder. I enjoy wearing this fragrance to work and on the weekend when I’m out and about. Obsessed is a versatile scent which can be worn both day and night. It has a pleasant warmth which pairs perfectly with the autumn season with its crisp mornings and sunny afternoons.
Price: Calvin Klein Obsessed for Men EDT 125ml $99. Available now from Myer & David Jones department stores along with selected pharmacies nationally.
The verdict: I must admit I have received a few compliments while wearing this scent.
It has a subtle sweetness which isn’t overbearing combined with a warm woody character. On the skin, the scent travels for the first hour or so before developing a sensual signature on the skin. An excellent fragrance for the man in his twenties who enjoys looking and smelling his best, especially during a night out on the town when he’s out to impress.
