Memories come back..
Hello dear perfumo friends,

away in front: This is my first comment here. Up to now I have only written a few short statements, because I am a newcomer to this site and I didn't dare to publish one myself, because of all the creative and stylish comments... But with the Boss Bottled Intense it's time now, because especially this timeless classic has a special meaning for me...

We are in the millennium year, August 2000, then a tender and innocent 15 years old... With my 3 siblings we have to share a room, privacy never exists and daily quarrels...
School had started again after the summer holidays and I sat down at the desk (which was first used by whoever was at home first) to do my homework. Suddenly I saw a 100ml bottle made of glass, transparent, light beige liquid, big fat Boss lettering, black cap... "Hmm, must be from the older brother, he'll get everything he wants anyway" was my first thought... "Oh come on, I'm alone now anyway, why don't you smell it"
For your information: If my brother would be present, I would not have dared to come, because our relationship back then was anything but great... Well, and then I had the opportunity to grab my hair and smell... "Mmm, wow, he's awesome" and smelled it again... "Man, I just want to hold my nose all day long and fall asleep like this."

Now, why am I telling a little anecdote about my personal life? Some of you might think that this is not interesting or has less to do with the Boss Bottled Intense. Well, as written above, this is my first comment and the situation described above is my very first experience with a fragrance ever. So I wanted to connect it in this way.

Well, let's get to the Intense version of this for me so special perfume...

About 18 years later, now grown up, Ü30, education, Abi on the 2nd educational path, studies in my pocket, relationship with my brother much much better, both in the middle of life and I personally only recently really started to deal with fragrances more intensively and build a small collection ...

It is spring, April 2018, shortly after my birthday. My brother has been married for a long time and has 2 children. He works a lot and does not live in the same city anymore. But nevertheless we meet again and again at the former parents' house and see us there, too.

It's just another day, a beautiful afternoon on a spring Saturday... After a while we both go into town together, a little stroll, in here, out there... We stand in front of the turquoise and go in, instinctively I go to the Hugo Boss shelves and suddenly I see the same bottle as 18 years ago, with the difference that the colour of the liquid is darker and on the bottle it says "Intense"... "Boy, is this cool, an Intense version of my special Boss Bottled?" Immediately I take the bottle, a test strip at the same time, open the bottle, and start spraying... Behind me one of those annoying saleswomen, I can already feel her breath... "Can I help you?" "No thanks, this is not a good time." Yes, it wasn't the most elegant and kind answer, but I didn't care at that moment, because I wanted to enjoy this moment all by myself... (My brother, by the way, was busy with Armani perfumes...)

So sprayed on the test strip, smelled it, and... "Amazing, just like 18 years ago, only better and stronger." Sprayed on the skin, same thought... I smell this delicious apple in the station wagon with bergamot in the top note just like back then... To let it work for a few minutes, I go to my brother (of course already with a newly packed Boss Bottled Intense 100ml bottle in my hand), look at a few other scents here and there, ask him what he wants to buy (he chose the Armani Aqva di Gio Profumo) and let him smell my scent on my skin again... He directly: "Dude, even better than the normal Bottled" What do I do, although I have already sprayed both my wrists? Go again to the tester and clap my neck full :D
We went to the cash register and he paid for the perfumes...

As soon as I go out, the sweet cinnamon in the heart note comes up my nose, "delicious"... We stroll a little bit through the city, are both hungry in the meantime and treat ourselves to a kebab :) But I am so enthusiastic about my scent that I can smell it all the time on my wrist, even though I and we are surrounded by a great Sillage anyway... Then I tell my brother about the day when I smelled his bottle and I remember this scent ever since... He gets melancholic and I see his joy in his eyes..
Meanwhile it is about 3 hours and we have arrived back at our parents' house, they smell me and like the smell very much... Meanwhile the base note with this super nice and pleasant sandalwood and cedar wood combination has become very important... We sit together a little bit and let the day end like this...

Conclusion:
By and large, this Intense version of Boss Bottled is one of the best fragrances for me personally. I will probably always wear it, because I like it so much. The durability on my skin is 6-7 hours, which is completely sufficient for me and in the first 2-3 hours the projection is very strong. Sillage is very noticeable in the first 3 hours, then it slowly changes to the 'skin-scent', but that doesn't bother me at all.
Except in midsummer, when it would be a little too sweet for me because of the cinnamon, it is wearable all year round. I think you can use it for many occasions (leisure, going out etc.). In any case it is my personal allrounder. But it comes best in spring and autumn. At these seasons I wear it the most.

So, that's it with my first comment here :) I didn't think it would be so long, but I think there is a reason why there are more than 7000 characters available for this function...

I hope some of you like my input and I am curious to see which scent I will write my second comment about...

Until then I wish you all the best and thank everyone here for reading! :)

VG, Salva

How could I?
How could I have rated that scent so highly??

Boss Bottled was the very first fragrance that I, too, was mercilessly addicted to!
It must have been 17 years ago...

I seem to remember that a good friend of mine owned a Bottled clone, which I liked very much right away. His father funnily enough owned Boss Bottled. What a great kind of scent!!!

When I had my first bottle of Boss Botteld, it immediately became my daily companion and my favourite fragrance of all! This fruity and spicy composition was my absolute favourite for years and countless bottles were used up I think today we would speak of signature ;)

Of course the scent is known and doesn't need many words, but I have the feeling that I always perceived Boss Botteld a little bit differently...
At that time I already perceived it as rather lemony and woody, with others reporting about a lot of apple. I have always assumed that this was spoken of a sour, green apple.
Why apple?
I always thought citrus fruits were sweeter. So if apple, then sweet-red!
Even today I'm not sure about the green apple! :-)

At some point I lost interest in this classic.
It was partly too common and when I got to know Fahrenheit 32 from Dior, BB moved more and more into the background...
Many years later I wanted to get a bottle of this good all-rounder again, because it was suitable for quite a lot of situations.
And of course this did not get past one (or even several) reformulations. For me it was not at all as intensive as before! I just thought my taste had changed and the scent had only been interesting for a certain period of my life.

At some point Boss Bottled Intense edt came on the market.
At that time I had already discovered the great first batches of YSL L'Homme and YSL La Nuit de L'Homme, which replaced the part of the bottle. I would still want to recognize slight parallels of the fragrances through the spicy sweetness...
For me, the Bottled DNA was pretty much, shall we say, "sucked out". That Intense edt was no longer a match. And actually I found the successor much too "gummy sweet"! I don't know why, but there was nothing woody and spicy about it.
I just didn't want to like it anymore...

As every designer was given a perfume variant, the "Swiss Army Knife" was also to be given an Intense edt, in which durability and silage were to appear more strongly again.
Well, that can't be helped! Almost no perfume variant in the mainstream is significantly stronger than the edts!

-Bottled EdP-
I was amazed to find out how good that smell was after all!
Intense, strong, sweet, fruity, spicy, warm and with a present projection
This can't be!
It brought back memories of those days...

It looked like the original without being diluted or synthetic.
I think if you would compare the vintage version with this one today, the perfume would definitely be heavier and sweeter Which does not bother me at all with this scent!
Yes, it is not wearable all year round and probably not the better all-rounder, but there are differences in quality that make the Intense EdP fuller, rounder and more mature.
I find this "heaviness", which reminds me of slightly powdered vanilla, paired with this sweet-spicy note, simply so good that it almost seems like a niche version of the current BB!
(And no I don't mean Layton!)
I already feel a little guilty about liking him so much!

Is the scent DNA already so widespread...
Everybody knows that smell already...
It's totally uninteresting and linear for us perfume-nerds...
Not quite for me, apparently!

We are not talking about the Holy Grail...
However, there is something classic, noble, a bit offbeat and at the same time very pleasing about it, that I can't help but ascribe no comment to it. Actually, this also applies to the original version of the fragrance! This DNA was so preachy for those times and of course for my fragrance experiences!

So after all these years, have I fallen for this scent again?
but of course!

Can I rate this fragrance so highly?
how can I not!
How could I?
...thanks for reading...

The adult version of Boss Bottled!
As a lover of Boss Bottled I switched to Boss Bottled Intense last year because I simply love the incomparable fragrance and the Intense version offers a better performance for me.

In the top note, an unmistakable apple and lemon, as we already know it from the Boss Bottled version. A fruity sweet fragrance for the young man (even still) of today. If you take a second nose after a while, the light clove and cinnamon come to the fore, which harmonizes wonderfully with the previous fruity notes and is rounded off by wood notes.

For me, Boss Bottled Intense is the adult version of Boss Bottled, a bit more masculine and multi-faceted, simply smelling a bit more complex than the Bottled version. Nevertheless, this fragrance remains youthfully warm and refreshing and it will find a place in my perfume cabinet for years to come. Not because it is absolutely outstanding, but because the fragrance, without being obtrusive, simply shows off its strengths and one of the sweet scents slowly caresses the nostrils while playing through the whole spectrum of its olfactory notes. This fragrance is like a good friend that accompanies you through the day without playing itself completely to the fore, but is still there when you need it.

A timeless classic for me. :)

A small disappointment on a high level
I'll save myself the trouble of using the normal BB for a comparison. Almost everyone should know what it smells like. This one picks up some elements of the BB and puts them in the foreground. That it is a stronger version of the original cannot be confirmed by my nose.

In the beginning it starts with a sour synthetic in which I cannot define anything. Cinnamon, a little woody and vanilla are added in the course. According to the fragrance pyramid, however, no vanilla is contained.

I find him for an EdP from the beginning very close. And that is also the crucial point. The fragrance as a whole is good, but where is the performance, please? I had asked a friend to make a statement after wearing it for three hours. She was surprised that I had put on a scent at all (two blows on the right and left side of the neck. Three spray blows on the shirt). When she approached 5 cm, she could perceive him. For my personal taste, this is relatively weak, or do I have to hang up more here?
But in his favour I have to say that I smelled my shirt in the evening and could still perceive it.

Is he now worth his money?
Yep. I got it at the offer price at D... i'll get it for you. 100 ml cost 42 EUR. This is approximately at the level of the normal EdT (not the intense variant). I would not buy it at the regular price. I'd rather see it as a variation to the EdT, which is a HAUCH stronger. I expect more from a perfume. It's too bad.

The worse version of the original
I'm a fan of the Boss fragrances but I personally prefer the Original Boss Bottled to be too unbalanced in my opinion, unfortunately rather a worse fragrance from Boss

Who's the boss here?
If you think of a well-known US-American sitcom, the sympathetic Tony Michelli will quickly come to mind. From the middle of the 80's until well into the 90's this show was, beside other sitcom's a la Alf, Full House, Bill Cosby or the terribly nice family, a fixed feature in the evening program of RTL, , SAT1, Pro 7 and co. I was unfortunately still too small at that time and only actively noticed this kind of television format with the artificially recorded laughter from the tape at the end of its life cycle. At the end of the 90s the last seasons were still running on German TV, or the already repeated episodes for the umpteenth time. But at least I still noticed it ^^.

I've had a similar experience with the Boss Bottled fragrance. It has been on the market for over 20 years and if you believe a comment or two here in the forum, its heyday is long over. A lot of reformulation later the edT will only be a shadow of itself.......Unlike the sitcoms I can't use my age here as an excuse. No, as a young man, I just wasn't interested in perfume. I was always satisfied with a cheap deodorant to "diesel". Maybe my upbringing is also to blame for this, after all I had the impression that perfumes (also for men) are a bit feminine, tufted or kitschy, because my father never wore perfumes except for aftershave.

As I now realize, however, I have probably missed something for years, only recently I have been actively wearing perfumes and my small collection is growing and thriving.

So it came to pass that I was advised in the mint green D. about an everyday scent. I was especially looking for something inconspicuous for the work, it should be a fragrance that does not fill the whole hut so the colleagues do not get angry. But at the same time he should already be present and also get in my nose again and again to sniff. Besides, since I wanted to wear it every day, it shouldn't be an expensive product.

The selection therefore much for me on Davidoff's Cold Water and Hugo Boss Bottled, two fragrances which are at the D. felt the whole year in "special offer" and 100 ml thus cost around 30€. Exactly my asking price for a daily companion.
The cold water reminded me of a sharp aftershave from my father and therefore fell out of the ranking. Old man can still smell like old man later ^^.

I really liked the HB Bottled from the fragrance, but here was the problem of durability and silage (mentioned reformulation problems). The seller's idea: "Mix the Bottled Original with the Intense Version. That's what some customers do, and they're lucky, we offer the intense version for the same price as the original."
Wonderful, that's how we do it!

And what can I say? It was a great idea. The intens gives the mixture the power to produce a nice, sufficiently long H+S. When I'm out in the evening I take the Intense pure.

I just like the smell a lot

What can I say about that? Episode 274 "Apple vinegar" with plastic closure
Apple cider vinegar 4.0 apparently BOSS and the BOSS public can't get enough of apple cider vinegar with cinnamon, another offshoot that will be followed by another. The original BB was diluted and soft rinsed so that Intense & Co. must continue to follow. The main thing is sticky fermented apple, sometimes with more cinnamon or even more cinnamon.

The Apple Cinnamon Monster
Respect Hugo Boss! I'm not a big supporter of their perfumes, but since I own this fragrance my opinion has changed. At the opening I am bombarded with apple, cinnamon and cloves. Boss should have intensified the apple and instead had to balance the other top notes better, because if you hate cinnamon like I do, then it goes right through your nose, but here they did a good job. I did a performance test on my skin and I was surprised that it could still be smelled after more than 6 hours. Then about 1 to 2 hours later the smell was gone. But hey, damn it, the base grade is awesome, man! It reminds me easily of TF Noir Extreme and Layton Exclusif, very horny :) This perfume is ideal for the cold days and gives me a Christmas vibe. Now to my favorite category. Drumroll How many splashes for which situation?
Date: 1 splash
Work/School/Study: 2 splashes
Out and about: 5 splashes
Special occasion: 2 splashes
The fragrance is very intense, so you only need a few splashes to achieve success with the ladies.
Who is the fragrance suitable for? For strong, proud and unconventional men. What's the matter with you? Because the fragrance is very intense and ingredients inside have not please everyone, I see a man between 21 and 40 years old who wears this fragrance. The man who wears this fragrance is courageous, mentally and physically strong and he has an aura that fascinates women, I also think of something like that when I smell this fragrance because it is sensual and cozy like YSL la nuit de l'homme. It's definitely a perfume that's more for casual situations, so I advise you if you have a special occasion, you can also use this fragrance, but Dunhill Icon is more suitable because it's gentler and not intrusive. This means that if you like fresh fragrances, you will probably hate them.
I'm looking forward to your comments!

A beautiful scent that reminds me of apples.
I own the EDP version and think that the perfume smells very good and lasts a long time.
The bottle also looks great and I'm a big fan of this perfume because it's great and smells like apples.

It happened through the bear group
I recently got a gift certificate for "D" at work. In our kindergarten it is like this, each group member gives 5 Euro for the birthday present and since we have speech therapists, physiotherapists and tens of educators with the bears, much of the voucher is accordingly solid ;)
So it happened that I had to pay almost nothing for 50 ml Boss Bottled Intense EdP. I don't know if I've tested him in the past. So it was probably a blind buy. But anyway, it won't be much different than the original fragrance, which unfortunately never entered my collection due to its somewhat boring freshness. Besides, Boss Bottled EdT < Boss Bottled Intense EdP should be two "levels" above the original in name and concentration. No matter what you're starting from now, strength, sweetness, etc.. I can definitely sign it like that. I would describe the Sillage as mediocre, after about 3-4 hours he is very close to me, which I find very pleasant. "Well, then it's on the skin," he keeps with me at least forever. 9+ hours.
And how does he smell now?
Well, as I said he was more or less a blind buy and so I had a little bit of disillusionment when I noticed that the top note is practically the same in decent sweeter. I expected it that way, so I don't know what my problem was... all right.
At the latest from the heart note one notices then that this colleague would not be here a candidate for the high summer. It is simply too spicy and "warm" for that. Everything else should be feasible, also with regard to situation/activity. Can't imagine he could touch anything unless you "sprayed" it.
As soon as the performance of the spices is over and you slowly but surely approach the base note, the main attraction will be the stage. Pure warm and sweet masculinity, triggered by very welcome woods. The whole thing is accompanied in my eyes/nose by a strong shot of vanilla, which is not mentioned here. Maybe I also imagine it, at least it smells very calming and cuddly without being "tunefully" to work I could imagine him, by the way, despite his strong masculinity for me also well at women, depending on type.
Barbies probably less ;)
Even if many will call him unspectacular, boring and exhausted like his original scent, I thank the team of the bear group for making it possible for me to add a new darling to my collection without great difficulties.
