At least beautifully in shell thrown
The small sample of this fragrance has been bobbing around in my bottling collection for more than seven years now, which has continued to grow over the years. Somehow I lacked the motivation to comment, but now it's due, because I can definitely confirm one thing with Boss Orange Man: he's really dressed in a fancy bottle.

Whereby this is to be relativized again somewhat, because at that time it still had a continuous metal strip at the side of the flacon, which was probably sacrificed for cost reasons. But could this mean that the content has been changed or reformulated?

So just in case, I'd better run two tests. The first of the aged but proper samples showed that Boss Orange Man exhales a warm-fruity to woody-spicy depth directly during application. Because of the name, which only presents the somewhat cheaper sub-brand aimed at younger people, one could actually feel reminded of oranges, but this would then be so synthetic that it seems almost absurd. Nevertheless, the combination of indefinable fruit and warm spice with a hint of vanilla was not quite so unsympathetic to me. A little Christmas feeling is coming up. In my mind I had already toyed with the idea of giving the fragrance a generous 7.5 points.

But what seemed to have been well done at the beginning turned out to be the usual test tube brew after half an hour, which continued to flatten further and further.

The counter-test in the perfumery took place about an hour later, but made it clear that the recipe had been tinkered with over the years. Here, when spraying on, more synthetics came to light, whereby the scent takes a similar fruity-spicy path after a short time, but in comparison to my aged sample it appeared somewhat fresher-metallic.

Now I'm wondering what to make of it. My older version is a little more cuddly and especially softer in the drydown, but I have the impression that the durability is more limited than the current version. Boss Orange Man is quite wearable and really suits the younger target group, but older people will rub against the subliminal synthetics, which do not do justice to the high-quality impression of the bottle.
