Get obsessed with this intense scent!

Obsession for Men shower gel is just one of many notable products to come from the vast line of Calvin Klein fragrances and body products. It's not just provocative advertising that has made Calvin Klein a major player over the years; the fragrances are consistently relevant and timeless all at once. An ideal example of this is, indeed, Obsession.

About Obsession

Chances are you've taken a stroll through a heavily scented department store and caught a whiff or a glance of this leading fragrance. Calvin Klein introduced Obsession for Men in 1986, and the scent made an instant and permanent impression on the beauty industry. Practically synonymous with classic, timeless scents, Obsession contains a masculine list of notes that are broken down into compelling single ingredients. They include lavender, myrrh, nutmeg, clove, amber, bergamot and mandarin.

Each note is quite vibrant on its own; together, though, they collaborate to introduce a fragrance that is, not surprisingly, very potent and remarkably universal. There's a strongly sensual undertone to this fragrance, yet for all its provocative tendencies, Obsession tends to appeal to men of all ages and personalities. College students love its ability to last from morning classes to a late night bar stop, while older professionals can wear it to the office without offending anyone with a too-strong aroma.

Similar to many other big-name fragrances, Obsession for Men is available in a number of formulas in addition to the basic eau de toilette. Included are:

  • After Shave
  • After Shave Balm
  • Deodorant Stick
  • Body Lotion
  • Body Wash
  • Perfumed Soap
  • Talc

Obsession for Men Shower Gel

These days, it's not uncommon to spot beauty products formulated especially for men in the aisles of your favorite drugstore, at a department store or even at a major beauty store like Sephora. The men's market continues to grow larger than ever before, and while there's always room for something new and different, some of the products that constitute the "old guard" continue to make a powerful statement. Such is the case for Obsession for Men shower gel. Just like the fragrance it's based on, the shower gel is spicy and rich. Unlike so many other shower gels that promise to invigorate and refresh with their minty scents, Obsession is heady and intense, yet still bracing enough to get him going when the lingering effects of a late night take their toll.

Expect to put up a bit of a fight if you're interested in getting your hands on this product. Though not impossible to locate, it's also typically not as easy as walking over to your local department store and grabbing a bottle. Relying on the Internet will likely yield a better result. Here are a few options to get you on the right track:

  • You generally can't go wrong with eBay. A quick search for an Obsession shower gel or body wash will turn up several results at various price points. Choose wisely; the product might be rare, but the price should not be over-the-top!
  • Consider a bottle of the more readily available Obsession Night All Over Body Wash. This fragrance, launched in 2005, is modern and more robust than its predecessor. Truly a nighttime fragrance, it builds on the original Obsession's penchant for spice and includes notes of black Tuscan suede, nutmeg, rich woods, patchouli and vetiver.

One Final Note

Don't be fooled by the name of the product! You might be searching for a shower gel, but Obsession terms their product a "bath gel." Don't worry - it's the same thing you're looking for. You'll also find a product called the Obsession for Men hair and body shampoo. This is another type of body cleanser that foams up and pulls double duty; use it to cleanse from head to toe. You'll save time and smell great!
