Once you go Obsession you never like flowery girly scent! Try enhancing by combining it with a spray of Tabu, it will envelope you with exotic incense.Definitely an evening fragrance or winter warmth spicey fragrance. I was at Kohl’s last night went there too buy my grand daughter an outfit. I am so happy that I decided to purchase the fragrances I wore in my youth.This was my signature for many years and I still absolutely love this perfume, but please, for those who loves a heavy sprayer, have mercy on those who don’t want to smell 8 sprays on this on you in a closed small office with no windows for 8 hrs a day on long hot summer days, or any weather for that matter. First of all, if your skin happens to eat fragrance like mine, this isn't powerful enough to overcome it. But I just bought a small bottle of it and sprayed it once on my arm, and it is STRONG! I remember i have sniffed it long ago and didn't dislike it back then, as a matter of fact, i convinced my bro to purchase it, and he did, but now he is complaining that it's too heavy. I won it at Ebay and I was anxiously waiting to arrive to try it. I must admit, I'm so clueless that at the beginning I thought they sent me the wrong perfume and this was a men's fragrance. And Oh, how I detest Old spice and that white bottle (I love the bottle, to be honest). I have a very small bottle of this, because I only need a very small amount and it lasts all day..I adore it! She had a knack for making things elegant and was a great hostess.
Some people may wear a statement necklace or have a statement handbag. The opening is really powerful, and then after it dries down, a sweetness and powdery vanilla show up. I wear this sometimes in honor of her, or when I want to evoke something romantic or special. So when I got my first job and salary this was the first perfume I ever bought and I still wear this besides other brands. Every spray still brings me back to my past and the face of that friend whom I'm never seen for 17 years! A couple of sprays in the air and a walk thru' the lingering fragrance is all you need with this powerful oriental fragrance.I have had people stop me in malls and various other stores asking me what perfume I am wearing. They say it doesn't smell anything like that on them. the green note disappears after five minutes and the Obsession DNA is still strong and powerful, but also sweet and warm, exactly as I remember it... I became obsessed with candy, sweet, foodie, yummy gourmands. Both scents need WINTER to come alive/get sweet/smooth... This is a spicy sweet chai masala, its Christmasy and also like a hot cross bun! First time I smelled obsession was on my aunt back in 1986.Very surprised that the rating on this fragrance isn't higher than it is. You do have to be careful when applying this one though. luckily winter lasts about 8 months here) I realized that Tabu most reminded me of Obsession... I'm still from that rural small town, so my purchases are almost always blind buys from ebay. I remember it was my first day of school;first grade to be exact,and I had missed the bus and she volunteered to take me.I love this perfume so much and you wont stop me from wearing this. Haha Oh dear, another blind buy courtesy of the eofy sales - at first I was pleasantly surprised by the warm cinnamon and rum scent, but wasn’t sure about the floral bouquet underneath. I reviewed before but I have more to say now that I've owned Obsession for awhile and gotten to know it better, both the vintage and current formulation.Longevity is pretty good:6-8 hours and I assure you that it'll last longer during the winter. Over time the scent has settled into something reminiscent of insect repellent. This may be an unpopular opinion, but I actually enjoy the reformulation more than the vintage!
