Masculine Playboy fragrance
This scent has an almost magical attraction to me. It's hard to put into words what makes Boss Bastard so special, because it has so many associations at once.

It is best to start with the genesis of the fragrance. Aaron Terence Hughes created Boss Bastard as a tribute to the movie "The Wolf of Wall Street". He imagined the central figure, the charismatic stockbroker Jordan Belfort - embodied by Leonardo DiCaprio - as he, loaded with a cigar, indulges in his unrestrained lifestyle and doesn't give a damn about his immediate surroundings at the end of the working day.

The fragrance can confidently be described as an egocentric creation. Even the first spray makes it clear in which direction it will go. The splendidly fruity opening is a clear announcement to everyone who is the boss here. The mandarin is the heavyweight here, courting attention with brute force. Thanks to the high 20 percent perfume content, this fruitiness lasts for a very long time. Citrus notes are only slightly perceptible in the background, the very natural mandarin covers everything and the sillage is brutal. One has to dose the number of sprays already extremely if one does not want to be completely cut off from the outside world. Boss Bastard wants to provoke and is certainly not a mainstream scent.

After about two hours the fragrance becomes darker, earthier and dirtier. A slightly smoky sweetness comes along and you immediately recognize Aaron's signature, which reminds you of his scents Boss Bitch and Violet Delirium.

As one is used to from this brand, head and heart notes show a high degree of endurance, which is due to the use of many natural ingredients in combination with the high perfume oil concentration.

And so it takes another four to five hours before the base notes come out. These may extend the fragrance journey by a few more hours, but at the same time they tame our loudly roaring, hitherto exhausted boss bastard. The tart cocoa note and the soft sandalwood tempt us to let the night gently fade away.

After such an intense day, this is also justified. Great perfumery.
