Boss Bottled Intense Cologne by Hugo Boss, Boss Bottled Intense for men by Hugo Boss is a reimagining of the original Boss Bottled scent launched in 1998. This scent came out in 2015, and while it retains the original’s luxurious masculinity, the modern version is woody and spicy rather than sweet. Its intensity comes from a concentration of precious scented oils. This scent opens with notes of apple and bergamot, gently wrapped in warm orange blossom. The spicy heart is composed of geranium blended with notes of clove and cinnamon. The intriguing, woody base of sandalwood, cedar, and vetiver is softened ever so slightly with a hint of vanilla.
