BOSS is renowned for its fashion and also for its fragrances. Now both are brought together in the BOSS Woman Runway Edition 2015, a trilogy of glamorous scents that combine fashion and fragrance. Match made in heaven!
Each perfume features a fashion sketch (the day dress, the tuxedo, and the evening gown) inspired by BOSS Womenswear Artistic Director Jason Wu’s debut collection. The scents reflect these tailored looks in “scented form”.
I was kindly sent one of the scents in the trilogy, BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme. When I first saw it, the first thing I noticed was the packaging. The light pink bottle is sleek, sophisticated and features Jason Wu’s take on a bespoke smoking jacket. How chic! The box is equally as beautiful with a silhouette of a model walking down the runway wearing the smoking jacket paired with smart black pants. Such a classic combination!
The perfume itself blends the freshness of cactus blossom with heart notes of pink freesia, jasmine petals and rose buds complete with base notes of cedarwood. It is a fresh yet warm fragrance making it an ideal day-to-night perfume. I would gladly wear it to the office then top it up in the afternoon to go for indulgent after-work cocktails.
Although the scent is gorgeous, the bottle is the standout feature for me. I love the elegant fashion sketch complete with the gold accents on a pink backdrop. Most of my perfume bottles are black or clear, so a pretty pink bottle looks really feminine among the rest of my collection. I think that it would make a lovely gift to a stylish friend but I’m more than happy to keep this little gem to myself.
BOSS WOMAN RUNWAY EDITIONS will be available in stores nationwide August 2015.
