New scent from Calvin Klein, new poster girl in the campaign. That poster girl is Eva Mendes, who created the controversial commercial for the ad that you see above. Wanna ask her about it? You have the opportunity to do so (or about anything else for that matter) by visiting the Secret Obsession's Facebook page and leaving your question on the wall. Eva will select 5 of the questions and answer them in a special post hosted by our friends over at BellaSugar. Hurry and get your questions in. You have between now and Thursday!
Being more or less of an Obsession fan (have you been put to sleep by Obsession Night?), I jumped at the opportunity to try the newest fragrance. Top Notes are plum, rose, and mace. Followed by middle notes of jasmine, orange flower, and tuberose. Lastly, the base notes of burnt amber, cashere woods, vanilla, and sandalwood come into play (basenotes.net). Sounds flirty, sensual and warm, no? I wanted to have love at first site, stick around for a drink and maybe even have a night cap, but all was lost when I was forced into a dirty night cap (think: bad date with Flava Flav.) The heady base notes came charging full force ahead. I tried to wait for a good dry down and get to the middle notes, but those strong notes of burnt amber and other woodsy, incense smells stayed right on until I was overwhelmed. After all, those are the base notes, end of story. My chemistry probably reacted to the fragrance in such a way, but with all the controversy it's worth your curiosity to try it and putting your stamp of approval (or disapproval) on it.
Tried it? Love it? Hate? Tell me what you think!
