Obsession is a spicy Oriental fragrance launched by Calvin Klein in 1985 and created by Jean Guichard. When it was released in the spring of 1985, Calvin Klein said, "I wanted to evoke the sensuality and ardor of an impassioned woman. A woman who allows herself to experience a romantic obsession and invites a man to do the same." It became a total blockbuster fragrance and one that defined the 1980s. It was sex appeal to the highest degree - all spices, vanilla, incense and civet and reportedly sold out at many stores even before they had their first shipment in. By 1987, Obsession was reportedly "rivaling Giorgio, the nation's No. 1 scent". (via Chicago Sun-Times, 12/9/1987)

An interesting side note - researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo discovered that large cats (cheetahs, jaguars and panthers) are attracted in various degrees to different scents - with Calvin Klein's Obsession piquing the most interest. Biologists are putting these findings to the test in the wild by spraying camera traps with Obsession in order to lure the wild felines into them. The cats spent the most time, more than 11 minutes, sniffing a tree sprayed with Obsession for Men. 

Sadly, as with most of the vintage fragrances, the current reformulation of Obsession is just not the same as the original. The original was a big 1980's powerhouse fragrance and the current version seems a bit washed out.

Obsession won a 1986 FiFi Award for Women's Fragrance of the Year - Luxe as well as a FiFi Fragrance Hall of Fame Award in 1998.

This is the original pure perfume version of the fragrance.
