I've tried a great many fragrances, and this is one of my very favorites--I always get compliments on it! This is one of those fragrances you just can't go wrong with; it's quickly becoming a classic! It has a distinctly musky, woody base that is very sensual, but it's also spicy with soft florals that make it seem exotic and oriental too. SO many fragrances these days wear off after a couple of hours no matter how much you put on--it's very frustrating! But with this one, you don't need to put on much at all and it lasts all day! It's completely worth the expensive price. The scent also seems to rub off on clothes more than other fragrances do, which I personally like. It's down-to-earth enough to wear everyday, but still sophisticated, classic and sexy enough that it's appropriate for special occasions. There's only one thing that can seem off-putting about it: when you very first spray it on, it can seem too powdery and overpowering. You just have to give it at least 15-20 minutes and after that the initial powdery smell fades to a sensual, woody base. I usually spray it on about half an hour before I go out, then by the time I'm ready to leave, it's perfect!
I bought this because it came with a free gift and the ratings were good so I thought why not?! I'll get some great perfume and a free set of candles... Well. You know when you smell a smell and it reminds you of your grandmother? That's what this reminds me of. It's not that it smells horrid... but it definitely is not something that I could picture myself, 24 yr old young girl to be wearing on the regular. With that being said... my mother will probably like it so I will just give to her.

I'm absolutely. Upset I've been wearing this perfume. For over 20 years. Nothing else. And I guess I didn't realize I was paying this much for a 1oz bottle. When I can get a bigger bottle for same price. Shame on you ulta.
Just say no from Phoenix, AZ
I have never been more offended by a scent in my life. I bought this based on reviews and decided to go big or go home and get the largest bottle they make, I mean after all what could go wrong with so many positive reviews? EVERYTHING!!! If "BOOMER" was a scent this would be it.
Barbee from CA
I bought this as a gift, but I'm ashamed to give it. That's a lot of money for something so tiny. So very disappointed!
mssasa15 from Ftl
Bought as a gift, put was really disappointed, for how much it cost, it's really small, not worth it at all.
Norma from Waterbury, CT
I have bee wearing Obsession for years. Always get compliments when I'm wearing it. So happy I can now get it at Ulta. Just wish they carried the larger 3 oz. size.
Best for older gens from Dallas, Tx.

larvai from Somerset, NJ
Always one of my favorites, I didn't realize it was a tiny bottle. Was suppose to be a Christmas gift. Too small for that. Should include the size somewhere.
Squirrel from Chicago
I've always loved Obsession so when my niece had it on her Christmas wish list how could Santa not oblige. It must be a loved fragrance since Santa got the last bottle at my local Ulta!
Aprilicious from Lancaster Ca
I have been wearing this since it came out in 1985. I remember the girl in the Bullock's department store in Palm Desert asking me if I would like to sample it. I immediately fell in love and it has been my scent ever since! It is so sexy and sensual I almost fall in love with myself when I'm wearing it!
Angela from VT
I am extremely sensitive to perfumes. I get headaches from a lot of scents. Obsession is the only scent I can wear and everyone loves it. I am told that it blends perfectly with my own natural scent .I get complimented wherever I go.
Beverly from Pittsburgh
Obsession is my favorite, I love it, and so does my husband when I have it on! Tells me I smell good.

This is the ONLY fragrance I use. I have been an Obsession fan since it first came out in the 1980's and I am 64 years old. I have sampled other fragrances but none comes close to this one. I put it on in the morning anf I will get complements all day. It is amazing how it is not overpowering but people still notice it. I hope that it is NEVER discontinued. But it is becoming a bit pricey.
DW22 from Chicago IL
This is my signature fragrance, the scent is soft but yet attention getting. I receive compliments all the time. People will tell me how nice it smells & its 8 hrs later.... My husbands favorite!! Makes me feel beautiful & sexy
Jennifer from North Carolina
I'm a big fan of small batch and unique fragrance brands like DS and Durga...but I always come back to, and still buy Calvin Klein Obsession. It's literally the only fragrance that I wore in high school that I still buy today. I'll sometimes go long periods of time without purchasing it....but then when I do i'm always like SO EXCITED to wear it and it's such a nostalgic scent for me. It's classic, works for any age. Like I said, I wore it in high school when everyone else was wearing like body spray that smelled like life savers...and still wear it today. Worked for me then, and still does now. I ALWAYS receive compliments when I wear it, from men and women. The lasting power is amazing for a department store fragrance. It lasts on me just as long as any of my DS and Durga fragrances. It's just a beautiful fragrance and I hope it's never discontinued, i'd probably be devastated.
JM from North Carolina
I'm 39 and I've used this fragrance since high school. I am typically not "brand loyal"....I love to try new things when it comes to beauty products...but when something is this amazing I'll buy it again and again. It's such a classic fragrance that never goes out of style. I Always get compliments when I wear this.
Debbie from Evansville In

Ann from Florida
I've used this fragrance since it came out. I may try something else. But always come back to Obsession! Great fragrance.
burning my nose from Omaha
Wow! I read the comments so I bought a Calvin Klein variety pack and I had to triple check to make sure it was for women. This is a heavy strong musk that smells like an old grandpa cologne.
Dotti from Illinois
Are use this fragrance daily. I have done so for many years. Each and every time I'm out in public, men or women always ask me the brand of the fragrance I'm wearing.
Brenda S. from Cypress, Texas
This is my all time favorite fragrance! It's a classic that still rocks. You most definitely need to check it out to see if it's worthy to add to your collection.
