What we’re loving right now in the world of beauty and fashion
Obsessed by Calvin Klein
Can a perfume bring back a memory? Can you smell the scent of someone you once loved on your skin? With Obsessed, the answer is yes. It is a magical fragrance, new in the Calvin Klein family, where memory meets desire, and the past blends with the present, and the result is a fragrance that is as good as the original and then some. You’ll find notes usually associated with women’s fragrances in Obsessed for men (here, vanilla), and Obsessed for Women features white lavender, usually deemed a man’s fragrance. So yes, you will smell him on your skin.
