I am so happy that I decided to purchase the fragrances I wore in my youth.
Very surprised that the rating on this fragrance isn't higher than it is. My perfume collection consists of Angel Muse, Alien, Coco Mademoiselle, Black Opium, Shalimar, Lavanila pure vanilla, Emeraude and Obsession. It is not sharp and suffocating old lady oriental, its milder and sweeter. This is a blasphemous reformulation and I'll never ever, ever, get over it.
You can find it at T J Maxx, Marshalls, Ross etc..a great price. 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 smaller bottle. The new one is thin with a nasty green-ness to it that stays about ten minutes.If I put pure nostalgia aside, Obsession is still deeply sensual, warm spicy oriental fragrance, with great performance and high endurance. Wear it on the skin, treat Obsession as a lover, it still has all the charms to reward you, enchant you and embrace you. For the currently sold version (2015): • Love (and I pray that it stays that way) • longevity: very long lasting (I can still get 12 hours) • silage: moderate, but thickly • weather, time, occasion: Moderately cold to cold. I tried the old and new side by side, so I am not relying on memories from 18 years ago. and it's been reforumlated, a mere thread of its former self.I am almost sure that younger Fragranticians, or those who missed the opportunity to get acquainted with Obsession at the peak of its popularity will find this version full and really rich. I wear it from deep autumn until the end of the winter. Its a sex bomb, but it can also be as comforting as a chai tea and smells like Christmas. I think it always will be, not because I am sentimental about it, but because it's good. I love it too but the reformulation rather ruined it.It was very strong but it was also a comforting scent.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.
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....
