Obsession for Men is one of the few (if not the only) mainstream fragrances that I decided to keep in my perfume wardrobe. And this happens not only because it brings me back happy memories (it is the perfume received as a Christmas gift in 2009 from my wife!) but, every time I put it on I get a feeling good sensation. Of course, it is also one of the most popular fragrances by Calvin Klein, but I will not get into that.
Now, Obsession Night for Men is a scent that I almost had it. And the “almost” word from the previous phrase is explained by the fact that, 7 years ago, I asked a friend of mine who travelled to Dubai to acquire me Very Irresistible Givenchy (sadly, at that time I fall victim to its huge marketing campaign) and taking into account that she knew me pretty well, she decided to buy Obsession Night for Men instead. Later, while having a phone conversation with her, she noticed my surprise and as a result, went back to the store and switched her purchase for Givenchy’s perfume. And as I told in here earlier, I end up by hating Very Irresistible Givenchy and gave it to my father.
Then, after having a lot of time to sample, I decided that Obsession Night for Men could be the ideal scent to go with my Obsession, however never bought it. The fact is the olfactory structure from Obsession Night for Men is different from the classic, and this is exactly what separates it and makes it unique and an ideal choice for nighttime wear.
Obsession Night for Men was introduced in 2005 and represents an oriental woody perfume infused with a deep, powerful and mysterious character. The dominant note of this fragrance is pear, which is perceived throughout all three development stages, rendering a sensation of refreshment to the structure. The first accords perceived in Obsession Night for Men came from grapefruit, in a blend that includes also cardamom, pear and Artemisia. Then, as the top notes subside, you will be delighted by a sensual accord of musk, juxtaposed to nutmeg. Much later, in the dry down, the warm patchouli is combined in sweet amber and everything is layered in vetiver, to provide a memorable trail.
The flacon that holds Obsession Night for Men is a replica of the original, this time the deep blue color chosen for the transparent glass representing an allusion to the mysteries of the night.
