Obsession for Men
Perfume grade 5/5 Rate and comment perfume 4 Opinions
I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


An explosion of tangerine, grapefruit, lime and bergamot freshens up green notes combined with lavender, nutmeg, coriander and cinnamon.The carnation note is warmed up by patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, benzoin, vanilla and amber.A subtle note of red berries enhances this powerful and sensuous fragrance.


Created after the women's version, Obsession for men daringly spells out "sex", a typical theme of the 80's, before a wave of Puritanism invaded the USA.Calvin Klein's codes set a trend on the international scene with the creation of fragrances in men's and women's versions, the black and white color of the ads and the adherence to timeless universal values.

    Chaleureux est le premier mot qui me vient à l'esprit quand je met OBSESSION. Je le préfère l'hiver, il entre dans mes parfums cachemire que je met pour me réchauffer. Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais je sens une petite pointe de cannelle.

    Tiens ! Obsession... pour homme ? J'achète pardi. J'ai bien fait. Ce parfum est très sympa. Pas exceptionnel, mais équilibré, énergique et "chaud". Je le conseille, au moins pour un essai.

    Obsession for men is the perfect embodiment of Calvin Klein’s sexual provocateur style (inaugurated in the 1970s) and fits the 1980s like a glove, when carnal consumption and Gordon Gekko Wall Street’s success was everything. It’s sweet, ambery, powerful, with a greenish start which juxtaposes the element of freshness to that of sexual anticipation & sweaty bodies. Most memorable ad the one with the nude couple on the swing. A huge commercial success for a reason!
