    Default Boss Bottled Smells Like Halloween????

    Hello Basenoters,

    I was recently in a halloween store today checking out all the masks and costumes, accessories, and everything else in between. I noticed a very distinct smell of the store and merchandise, especially the masks. It finally came to me. Boss Bottled! Am I off here? I've had Boss Bottled in my collection but am now barely making this distinction. Am I off here? Maybe it smells like candy corn? Anyone agree with me?

    Its that sweet smell of a bunch of cheap, Chinese made, plastic crap piled into a store. Its the chemicals in the plastic or the paint.

    I agree! Would you say that that smell shares a similarity to Boss 6? I think it does but obviously, Boss 6 is done with more quality. I find a good resemblance but still I love Boss Bottled!

    Actually now that you mention it, I definitely do see the connection between the smell of that and a Halloween store. That being said, I love Boss Bottled and I love Halloween, so that by no means is a bad thing (if anything this makes me like it even more now that you pointed it out). Maybe my new Halloween signature scent?

    Haha I find that so amusing to read! Normally one might be repulsed by that smell but you actually want the opposite! lol!!!

    The apple-pineapple note might actually somehow remotely smell of pumpkin, so yes

    The pencil I can see but I've never smelled the rubber foam haha and yes, I can definitely understand what you mean about the tools Home Depot section! It must be that plastic!

    Yes! That's it as well! I made that connection when I first tried Boss Bottled! I loved it! Since I visited a Halloween store yesterday, I changed my mindset from pumpkin spice, to costumes, then I thought, hmmm why not just HALLOWEEN in general! I definitely get a spicy sweet pumpkin though! I wonder if I should be turned off now about the costumes and mask smell. I've never liked it but I love Bottle. I'm so confused now lol
