Unsettling is right

This has something really weird in it that makes my stomach turn. From a distance it smells like the regular Obsession to me, but with an unpleasant twist. Up close, it's unbearable! I can't even describe the weirdness of the note I'm smelling - it's deep and sweet but somehow very unpleasant. I can't wait to get this off my skin...
A bit strong

A very nice scent, but it does not last long enough to get out of the house.

I read all the positive reviews and wanted to feel the same way. This scent was so overpowering and harsh to my nose. I don't find any sweetness, warmth, coolness or depth to it, just the lingering unpleasantness that sticks in the back of your sinuses.
WONDERFULLY MYSTERIOUS AND UNIQUE BUT DOESN'T LAST!

This is a wonderfully mysterious and unique fragrance, but unfortunately, it doesn't have any staying power! One pro - It doesn't cause me to get headaches like many other fragrances do.

After sampling this perfume again, I've decided to make this my signature and add valuable comments: In my opinion, the main issue with this frag is it is linear in character with my chemistry. The spices and plum arrive in a blast and do a good job for 3 to 4 hours. I love this aspect! I can't tell you how many times I've enjoyed the top notes and opening of a fragrance, only to have it disappear in several moments. I love Secret Obsession's entry in my world, and it really works well and stays that way! YUMMY! SOooo thrilled!!!
Luscious Oriental Floral!

WOW! This is not the original Obsession for Women, but I find when I wear this, sometimes during the day it definitely reminds me of it; almost catching me off-guard. It's so cool with nice spices. It's great in warm weather too. It makes me happy - another great CK frag for sure!
So, I believe cognac comes in play here - it's not listed in the notes, but I sense it! This is a beautiful warm scent, but great that it's not that sweet. The plum is soft, so that keeps the scent from being gourmand, which is terrific. The nutmeg is really superb here! This perfume is sexy and cozy and lasts well, however wears close to the skin and emanates upward, so you catch whiffs of it periodically throughout the wear. The sandalwood is perfect tooin toning down the vanilla. Secret Obsession is wonderful!

This has a wonderful smell to it also, but in does not have much staying power. Very soft and feminine!
