    Default Has Boss Number One been reformulated?

    When this was in its original incarnation (was it just called Hugo Boss?) I remember a small dab of the EDT used to last hours and hours. I've just received a bottle of Boss Number One and I've had to top up almost every 3 hours or so.

    Yes, it is. I have a post comparing each here:

    It's not THAT good anymore, but still the best from the house.

    My feeling is that a lot of people won't be able to tell the difference. However, I have had an original Boss Cologne, then another one without it saying anything (no Number One or Cologne), then a newer one, which is Number One, but it could be several years old (don't have the boxes). The point is that there may have been several formulations, which differ a bit because it's not possible to get it exactly the same as a previous batch from years ago, unless it's totally synthetic, which I don't think it is. And so this may be an issue of "batch variations" rather than "reformulations."

    i have the hugo boss without the no. 1. it definitely lasts longer than the no.1 that are being sold in the malls nowadays. scent-wise, i also find something missing in the current formulation. all in all, for those who have not tried the vintage version, i guess they will still like the current one. but for those who have tried the vintage, the new one doesn't quite cut it.
