The screwdrivers
I used to deal with private stations for a while, and often I was surprised. Every week there were new illuminations and breakthroughs in the follow-up to the broadcasts. As soon as the slightest noticeable irregularity could be seen in the 1-second runs, the editorial offices reacted with the determination of a Swat team. For example, if women from Bottrop with divorce problems have led to minimal eruptions in the rate, there will inevitably be more of them in the next issues.

It's exactly the same with the big perfume companies. If people would ask for sand like crazy, Coty would offer whole europallets of it. What's stupid is that people like scents better. That can be annoying, of course. But you still have the market research.

So it's all logical. Because Boss Bottled was so successful, they just let the engine run and turned a few screws. There was no vanilla plum tea in the process, and certainly the fresh, fruity apples were not used. Instead, the makers have created the same controlled favor with sweet spice and enriched it with a hint of daring through a leather accent. The fragrance manages to be accentuated and stuffy at the same time. The latter covers marketing with dazzling grenades in the fragrance pyramid.

The chemical laboratory assistants laughed themselves to death when they cheered on the boys from the management consultancy Maninka-Frucht. "Hahaha, maninka fruit!" they shouted head-shaking while cleaning their wet glasses and wiping their laughing tears out of their eyes. The suit guys with the Air Jordan sneakers didn't notice it and polished up on grand release lyrics and an apodictic name. "The Scent" now stands exactly between "The car" and "The crew", so between really big and really embarrassing.

To prevent misunderstandings, Boss Bottled and The Scent are different fragrances. But they have the same basic idea of conformity and solid immunity. The price is moderate, the reactions are benevolent and the fragrance is solid. One can even say that The Scent is quite acceptable after its initial Bundesliga player sweetness, because it becomes darker and spicier and even slightly bitter due to the incipient lavender. In the end, he even dares to quote a tiny whisky, giving a bit of conspiratorial resistance to the women who buy this perfume for their husbands at Christmas. And you can't deny it's a working concept.

So Coty did everything right. But nothing but money won.

If I play tennis with my husband - then only gentleman tennis.

That means you play the ball politely to each other - without chasing each other all over the court.

This protects ligaments and joints, the peace of the house and the nerves.

You have movement - without annoying competition.
I enjoy sports as much as you do.

And just as friendly is The Scent.
It plays the ingredients to me safely so that I can reach them comfortably.
No sudden stops - or treacherous slices.
The scent keeps me in the game, without exaggerated ambition.

Soft ginger spices gently and sweetly fruity Maninka is added.
Lavender creates peace and relaxation.
The leather does not crack, but nestles pleasantly.

A considerate gentleman from crown to sole - with whom I would like to dare a match.

Orange-ness aroma with ginger/leather
This is a very simple scent, very straightforward nothing fancy, not sporty, not formal, just something for year-round when you're not serious about dressing up or dressing down or being taken serious.

The maninka fruit is something I've never come across so I'm guessing that is the orange- like aroma I detect.

The ginger adds to the lively aspect while the leather, which is barely noticeable, gives it a foundation.

Average life and projection.

If you can find it cheap then it might be worth a try or just send away for a vial/sample which is available at many websites.
No climate of change at Boss
Hugo Boss have released their new masculine just in time for the COP21 Climate Summit.
Another way to avoid releasing noxious fumes into the environment...

The Spirit...
I tested today (in Portugal). I liked.... Very much! It has character. Bold.
This is an excellent new fragrance from 'BOSS'. It has a scent with a familiar touch of the 80s, very similar, if the olfactory memory doesn’t betray me, with the discontinued 'BOSS Spirit'.
It will be a sales success.
