Bottled Tonic. Hugo Boss, 2017.


Rate: 10 points (out of 20).

Olfactory Family: Woody Spicy.

There some perfumes, not so many, that I would describe it as a complete failure. They are so much a failure because they just smell bad (though smelling bad is not cool…) but because I put a certain sort of expectations on a strong brand’s perfume release that turns out to be entirely a flop, in many aspects. Bottled Tonic is one of those examples.

o-43331The overall idea of this fragrance was to bring forth a fresh and cool version of the original Bottled. To that point I would considered it a clever idea – though Bottled remains as a top seller it must be renewed from time to time – until I actually tasted it.

Fresh fragrances have always a citric start and Bottled Tonic mixed citric elements like Bergamot and Grapefruit with… apple? Then it evolves to a mix of Ginger and Cinnanon heart which is sort of… warm elements. As I tasted it on my skin I found that, after a couple of hours, Bottled Tonic doesn’t have fixative behavior…

The only thing I strongly good and interesting about Bottle Tonic it is its water blue color in the bottle and package.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon and Apple.

Base Notes: Grapefruit and Cinnamon.

Heart Notes: Vetiver.
