The reinvention of a Calvin Klein icon

I remember your touch, your skin, your scent…  

At the heart of OBSESSED is the memory of a past love, triggered by the scent of another on the skin. Here, the genders are subverted and layered,with the traditional scents of the masculine Fougère—particularly White Lavender—harnessed for the women’s fragrance, while the men’s scent is in thrall to a dark Vanilla. These elements are combined with materials more typically associated with each gender; Musks add a sensuous warmth to the women’s fragrance while Amber and Woods strengthen the sense of masculinity in the men’s. It is this tension,a compulsive push and pull that makes the wearer return to the fragrances time and again.
OBSESSED delights in excess, yet this is achieved in a refined, balanced and contemporary way.

A combination of olfactory memory and modern desirability brings the past seductively into the present.

An Oriental Aromatic Green

Top Sacred CitrusNeroli Essence Elemi
Mid Violet Leaf White Lavender Purple Sage
Dry Musk Helvetolide Ambrette Muscenone

A masculine Fougère structure is contrasted with feminine warmth; the fragrance is formed around a base of White Lavender, while creamy Musks envelope and sensually soften.

The tension of the aromatic top notes with the smooth creaminess of the back, further explores the tension between the masculine and the feminine.

An Oriental Woody Amber

Top Oro Blanco Grapefruit Sichuan Pepper Black Cardamom
Mid Cedar Leaves Labdanum Firnat Blonde Leather
Dry Patchouli Cœur Black Vanilla Infusion Ambrox Super

A compelling heart of Black Vanilla is sophisticatedly structured with dark, dimensional woods, providing the tension between a feminine melodiousness and masculine strength.

Ambrox elegantly cuts through all, lending a sleek and contemporaneous edge.
