    Boss Number One by Hugo Boss

    Dated. clumsy, heavyhanded and nauseating. I wore this in the 80s and dont' know how I managed it.

    Revisiting it in the context of some knowledge about fragrances, I appreciated the beeswax (they're calling it honey) note hidden in the murk of horrible "Fruit Loops" synthetic florals and fruit. The basenotes are so insinuated into this sickening mess that they are overpowered by the aromachemical catastrophe that Boss is.

    My real pity is for the female or other partner of the innocent man who applies this miasma to his chest and has to smell it while next to him.

    I am wondering if they are still employing Pierre Wargnye, the perpetrator of this scent.
