    Default Do I need Obsession?

    Hello Folks!
    Does someone that already own S.T. Dupont Signature, Givenchy Pi Fraiche, JPG Le Male, Gucci Envy and YSL Kouros need to own CK Obsession or It's a redundant acquisition?

    Oh, yes! *Obsession is very special--not like any you mentioned. *It's a real experience and a beauty.

    Obsession is full-tilt spicy, not like the ones you mentioned (I'm not familiar with Pi Fraiche but I'll go "out on a limb" to guess that it is not).

    Good stuff, I should get a mini of it. I would suggest that you do the same as well (one of the few times I would suggest getting a mini.)

    I would guess that the Minis of the Calvin Klein frags are pretty good value; they are not extraordinarily pricey (I think $6ish at Target), and since Calvin Klein frags are pretty popular, you probably won't have too much light damage from the frag sitting around in the light. I would be more hesitant to buy from a fragrance store or small local place with the minis, as the turnover might not be as high as in a mass-market retailer.

    I got a mini of Escape a while ago. While I have outgrown Escape (it was one of my first frags and my tastes have changed), the frag was in great shape, and at $7 for a 1/2 oz spray (I got it online I think), that is a pretty good deal.

    Probably the closest of what you have to it is Signature, and that isn't really close.

    Sure, why not?

    I went from the large bottles to the mini's though. I throw it in my overnight bag and haven't had any leakage problems unlike other bottles.

    If you can find it dirt cheap, you may want to get it to round out your collection. If you can only get it expensively, I'd say its a redundant acquisition.

    I always have a hard time recommending either Obsession or Pi, as they're both scents that I have liked a lot initially, then found myself turned off them for quite a while. That doesn't happen to me with most other scents.

    Obsession. It should be a staple to every gentleman's collection.

    And don't forget the all-over shampoo which is divine. I also recommend a smaller EDT bottle - say 30ml - as you may not find that many occasions to wear it. For me it is very much a Christmas scent.

    Obsession is actually my favorite CK scent. It's a classic Oriental and is one of CK's rare assets. I would choose it over all the recent Oriental frags released. You don't necessarily need it per say, but it would be a great bonus to your collection. It's dark, sweet, and caramel-like. It doesn't come off as being dated either.
