Advantages: Long lasting and nice fragrance
Disadvantages: Not widely available
My partner first brought me this fragrance a few years ago when it was first launched in 2000 (back in the day when I didn't have to buy my own presents)
When I asked him what initially attracted him to the product, he said it was because it was on a stand on its own in Boots. I didn't think it would be the packaging as it is quite basic; it comes in a white box which has a silvery grey band down one side with the word Boss cut out in white writing.
The bottle is also quite simple; it is clear glass and shaped a bit like a semi circle (which has been squashed slightly), on the back of the bottle is the word 'WOMEN'. The silver lid is quite big and has the brand name and logo on.
I would say it is a quite a natural fragrance, by that I mean it doesn't smell too synthetic or cheap like some fragrances can.
The fragrance is described as being fruity, and being made up of several elements: Kumquat, Mandarin, Mango, Kiwi, Pineapple, Orange, Cananga Flower, Living Passion Flower, Freesia, Orris, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Cedarwood. I find that the fragrance goes through a few transitions when sprayed on my skin, upon first spray; the beautiful aroma mango mixed with freesia is the most dominate fragrance. After around 20minutes, this subsides slightly and the vanilla starts to come through, after a few hours the fragrance adopts a musky aroma.
I find that the fragrance has really good staying power and I have worn both during the day and on nights out. I find it quite strong so I don't tend to spray much during the day and if I am wearing at night, I spray a little more and normally on top of the body lotion from the same range.
I haven't bought this for a few years, but a quick search shows me that it is not as widely available as the rest of the Boss perfumes which is a little disappointing. The most common size available is a 30ml bottle which retails at around £30.
Surprisingly, despite the fact that my other half chose this for me, he did make a good choice and I would recommend this fragrance and I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
