How would you describe the new BOSS Bottled Elixir? Who is it for, and what makes it a worthy 25th anniversary fragrance?

BOSS Bottled Elixir is an intense ambery and woody fragrance. I wanted to approach the gourmand family 25 years later in a more contemporary way with an overdose of vanilla notes sophisticated by a strong patchouli signature and a rich ambery background.

Long-term, what do you think has contributed to the continued success of BOSS?

I strongly believed in the idea of a gourmand scent and more specifically, the apple strudel association: cooked apple, cinnamon and vanilla were notes that I thought would appeal to the BOSS man of the time, reminding them of the comforting smell of home-cooked meals. I am just happy to still smell this fragrance on people in the street, it became a classic and I am proud of it.
