    Default NEW Boss Bottled Tonic

    The fragrance is named the freshest Boss ever. Scheduled for March. Grapefruit and ginger are among the notes.

    I've steered clear of Boss fragrances for quite a while now even though I used to really enjoy them, too much of a good thing and all that, but ginger based frags are always welcome around these nostrils and grapefruit has always been cool with me.

    Thanks for the info Anton.

    Thanks for the info. It does sound semi-interesting, but have zero expectation.

    It might just work...if they lay the ginger and grapefruit over a smooth base...Amber? or vanilla? Honey? Anything other than the hopeless harsh woods that currently sit under most designer freshies

    I wonder if this is going to smell like DHS 2008.

    It sounds kind of interesting, I definitely want to test it out.

    Will of course try it if I see it in my area. Have yet to find a Boss I've liked.

    Grapefruit, ginger.... now that you said amber, ambroxan comes to mind, went again to the OP and the bottle has a very suspicious blue color...

    So I'm calling it a Bleu/Sauvage Boss Bottled...

    Bleu and Sauvage EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, it's almost mid-March, and I'm seeing entries listed for it here and elsewhere at online fragrance sites.....but no mention of it being available at ANY department store. AND....it's not even listed on Hugo Boss's website!

    Anybody know what's up with this one?

    I'm not sure what's going on with this one either. I asked a few SA's at Macy's, Sephora and Bloomingdales recently but no one knew a thing. I'm really interested in it though and I've been thinking about an eBay purchase, I just don't like to have to choose international shipping. I recently smelled Bottled Intense EDP and it's excellent...really well done. If you haven't tried it yet you should.

    I got to try this in Germany last weekend. It's really nothing to fret over. Pleasant and fresh yes, but rather forgettable. There are much better alternatives out there, this is kind of meh. I'm bad at describing notes so sorry for not being very detailed. I ended up purchasing Kenzo Aquadisiac that day which gets the job done in a more satisfying way for me.

    Tried it yesterday. It's a more airy version of Boss. Casual and office wear in my opinion. The EDT remains the pillar of the line as it's the most versatile of all the flankers.

    This is a definite try for me! The last couple Boss releases were decent.

    I actually got a bunch of compliments from Boss Pure a few years ago. Not bad for $20 at TJ's!

    Hopefully the ginger and grapefruit hang around in this one!!

    Thank you, gentlemen. Another purchase saved!

    Finally got my bottle last weekend. For me, as an original Boss Bottled #6 lover, this is a great fragrance. The apple and vanilla are turned down, and citrus is added on top for a fresher, brighter version with the orignial BB#6 DNA at the base. I really enjoy it.

    The performance seems to be lacking, however. I'm getting 6 hours on clothes, but only 3 or 4 hours on skin.

    Big fan of the original, so I had to try this, finally got around to it today. What a big disappointment. It's very generic and boring, just like Boss Bottled Sport, Night and Unlimited.

    I'll just stick to the original, Intense, or Oud :-)

    I ordered it from a distributor in Spain. I had a massive order so it wasn't a big deal to add it, but otherwise shipping would have been $25-$30 alone for just the single bottle.

    Whoa. Sounds interesting! I'm a fan of the original. I wonder when this one will hit the U.S.

    Original does very well. 8 hours or so.

    the most generic, boring & cheap smelling fragrance i've ever tried.

    i think the real tonic smells better
