My obsession with fragrances didn't spark until I moved to Toronto from a small town in Alberta, Canada around four years ago. At the time I didn't know anything about the city, which inspired me to create a platform where I could create conversations about my passions, obsession and everything I loved. One of the things I loved writing about the most, aside from fashion and what I was wearing, were fragrances.
For me, fragrances are more than just a scent. Often times I smell colognes and I think back to specific memories that I associate with the notes of the scent. For example, Calvin Klein fragrances always remind me of my dad. In high school, I remember waking up to get ready for class, walking in the bathroom and getting hit with a wave of my dad's favourite Calvin Klein cologne. To date, smelling CK fragrances always reminds me of this memory.
OBSESSED by Calvin Klein, one of the brand's latest fragrance launches, has the perfect combination of Black Vanilla that is also fused with dark, dimensional woods. It provides the tension between a feminine melodiousness and masculine strength. This combination makes it the perfect everyday fragrance that's subtle yet sexy and instantly makes me think of when I shared my first fragrance post with all of you on the blog. Fast forward four years and my obsession with fragrances has only grown stronger, similar to my obsession with the city I currently live in and am proud to call home.
