Like the original Obsession, Secret Obsession is a floriental, but the two scents are not meant to be related in any way other than the name, and in the event, they don’t share anything much other than an ambery base and an overtly sensuous character. Secret Obsession has a sweet, fruity opening that smells entirely of today. Still, don’t go looking for the sparkling and sheer pinkish berries that decorate so many of the fruity florals of the past five years. These fruits are spicy and overripe.The dry down is a sweet floral. The notes include exotic plum, mace, rose de damas, jasmine, orange flower, tuberose, cashmere woods, burnt amber, vanilla and sandalwood.
