A warm and syrupy-sweet ambery-musky oriental. Offensive. Smells cheap.
Where do I begin?

This may be unpopular but oh god... I was testing colognes on the strips and had the great misfortune of accidentally getting this musky oil stuck on my skin. It is very STRONG. It smells like if you were at a marketplace and someone grabbed those huge bags of spices and threw it at you. And incense. My friend who was with me even got an instant headache and started coughing. And he is very tolerant of scents. Maybe this is good for old dudes but not me.
Classic and Sexy

I love this scent on a man! It's a very sexy fragrance. Not overwhelming if applied with a light hand. Seems much easier to wear than the female version. This could be worn day or night, though I feel it is a little more suitable for night;)

Smells so warm and masculine. A good buy.

I fell in love with Obsession decades ago when I smelled it on women. The men's fragrance is similar, but not quite as strong. I use it mostly on casual days when I just want to smell nice without drawing attention or making a major statement. Being recognizable and always getting compliments makes it a true classic and staple surviving the test of time.

Not much to say here - this fragrance may be very well known, but there are so many better options out there. This smells very feminine in my opinion.

Haven't we had enough? No more please, it's been done to death.
A must have - A staple really!!

This is wonderfully spicy, warm, heavy, powerful, long lasting, and a totally terrific musky smell of masculinity. Obsession for Men is an embracing scent. It doesn't physically grab you, per say - it wraps itself around you. totally enveloping you; and really everyone around you. It is just so warm, rich, spicy, and softly sweet! I could go on and on, because I find it hard to describe fully or get the point across that there's such a super great feeling about it!
The deep, rich cinnamon along with the inviting vanilla, warm amber, soft powdery sandalwood, and marvelous myrrh form the main core of this fragrance. Nutmeg and coriander dustings along with 'fresh'-squeezed citrus (mainly a tangy tangerine) are combined with a delightful, earthy patchouli, a light, soft floral bouquet, and a warm, comforting musk. The musk is also 'clean', by the way, which is to say, not foggy, overpowering, or fake. Plus, you really can smell almost all of the notes through the wear stages! Amazing!! Extremely enjoyable!!
Obsession for Men is also a mature and rich perfume! I have found that it melds/meshes well on every skin and seems to last for a long, long time! It actually never seems to completely retire - until maybe your next shower. It is unmistakably original! Truly the best!!
If you haven't sampled it - what are you waiting for? Don't just try it once either - if you need convincing, then try it several times so you understand the full capacity of this 8th Wonder of the World! You will be adding this to your collection soon, I'm sure!!!
If I could, I would rate Obsession for Men as 6 stars instead of the max here of 5 - it's just that good!

A very strong/heavy fragrance.

I'm surprised no one else gave a review of this fragrance on this site so far. This was so popular in the 80's when it first came out. I didn't like it too much then and I don't like it now. It's a woody type fragrance that's very strong and very heavy. I wore some now and then after my Dad gave me his splash on bottle that he hardly ever used. I wore it to work one day and was surprised to get a compliment from a lady co-worker and suggested it for my signature frag. I don't think so. This frag. may wear well with other people. It has real good strength and I think also on longevity and sort of classy. It's just not for me.
