I’m probably VERY late in reviewing this scent, considering it was launched in 2009, so yes, I’m very much behind. However, owing to the fact that I’m a safe person when it comes to perfumes and scents *my favourites since forever has been Mariah Carey’s Forever and Armani Code for women* , and I rarely switch em up, me falling in love with a perfume so quickly is amazing.
My go to perfumes are usually the typical girly perfumes, sweet, fruity, or floral, and the Boss Orange Woman EDT is no different. I got this miniature sample of Boss Orange for Woman when I bought the boyfriend his Christmas gift.
A little about this scent and its history first. BOSS Orange for Women, the youngest HUGO BOSS Fragrances brand, was launched in summer 2009, and the celebrity handpicked to represent this scent was the lovely Sienna Miller. For the men version, the celebrity was the hunky Orlando Bloom! Yums 😉
The BOSS Orange Woman is described to be a scent for the free spirited woman who is passionate about happiness, and is a warm fragrance that combines the top notes of crispy apple and bergamot and white peach while the subtle heart notes are composed of orange flowers, plum, and cinnamon and the base is characterized by notes of sandalwood, olive wood and creamy vanilla which combine to create a real sense of depth, adding layers of light intensity.
TOP NOTE: Crispy Apple, Bergamot, White Peach
HEART NOTE: Orange Flowers, Plum, Cinnamon Stick
BASE NOTE: Creamy Vanilla, Sandalwood, Olivewood
The Boss Orange EDT is presented in an eye catching bottle that cleverly blends metal and gem-like orange stones to create a sharp, contemporary look, yet retaining a feeling of softness and femininity.
Perfumes are something personal, and the first sniff of this scent reminds me of baked goods, a strong creamy vanilla scent which I love so much, and to be perfectly honest, the first thing anyone would notice about this scent is that its sweet.When you first apply it, you get hit by the strong apple scent, and after a while it fades to the cinnamony scent, which probably why I am reminded baked goods. And after a few hours of application, the scent that remains is the sweet vanilla notes. The scent lasts for about 5-6 hours, and reapplication is necessary, which is a turn off since I expect my scents to last longer.
What do you think? Are sweet scents your thing, or do you run away from anything remotely sugary?
The Boss Orange Woman EDT is available at all major perfume counters and departmental stores. for the following prices: RM163/30ml, RM220/50ml, RM295/75ml.
