Boss in Motion was launched in 2002, and is part of the line of clothing “Boss”, elegant and classy, as opposed to “Hugo,” younger and fresher. The bottle is gray, with the shape of a ball and an orange line in the middle. The official notes are: bergamot, violet leaves, basil, pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, sandalwood, vetiver and musk.
The opening is very fresh, with green notes diluted in water and a good aromatic trail. After about ten minutes, the fragrance becomes more powdery, thanks to violet leaves. Violet and basil tame each other in this phase, and as a result violet doesn’t fee like a flower and basil is less Mediterranean. The middle phase starts after about fifteen minutes and is marked by spicy notes of cinnamon and sandalwood, which mix with the green notes creating a similar effect to Creed perfume Green Irish Tweed. In this phase, cinnamon is dominant, with basil and a fresher violet in the background. As time passes, cinnamon and sandalwood get softer, leaving more room to nutmeg. The final phase keeps the feeling of spicy water, with the occasional vetiver. There is probably also a note of musk, but it is mixed with the rest of the warm layers.
Boss In Motion is dynamic as the name suggests, but more as a fragrance for semi-informal occasions than as a sport cologne.With this respect it is very similar to Chanel Allure for men. The fresh opening and the development towards soft watery spices give a quite fresh feeling, and make this fragrance suitable for any season, as water is fresh for the summer and cinnamon is fresh for the winter. Moreover, cinnamon is elegant in an office without being extremely classic. For a night use, spices leave a wide trail, and on the romantic side it is very pleasant, although it lacks of specifically attractive notes. The ideal age range goes from 25 to 45 years.
