Name this organic compound?

I've got to name a compound but it has a double bond it in that is screwing me up.

It is a cyclopentane molecule with a Pheyl at the 1 position and -OH at the 1 position as well. Between the 3rd and 4th Carbon, there is a double bond.

How do you include the double bond in the name?

Would it be 1-phenyl-3-en-cyclopentanol


I think it might be 1-phenyl-3-cyclopenen-1-ol instead.

Anyone, please!

I'll give 10 points
