Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme is the brand new and latest addition to the Boss female fragrance family – Boss Nuit and Boss Jour – and I am instantly obsessed with the beautiful soft pink bottle. It also smells rather lovely!!
Isn’t that just the perfect, stylish dusty pink. I love it! The concept behind the fragrance is the off-duty Boss woman. Gwyneth Paltrow, who is again the face of the campaign for Boss, says it represents “a time to pause and take a moment”. Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme is inspired by the ability to treasure and enjoy special moments in life and having the confidence to step back and appreciate the beauty of life behind the busy, everyday routine.
The focus of the scent – Cactus Blossom – is a really interesting one. With the aim to ‘reinvent and modernise floral green notes with a delicate pink twist’, the cactus with it’s delicate pink blossoms is an inspired choice. It is fresh and green with a beautiful feminine and floral softness.
Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme Notes
Top – Modernity: Cactus Blossom
Heart – Feminity: Pink freesia, jasmine petals, rose bud
Base – Confidence: Sheer woods, cedarwood
The woody base gives a lovely depth and sophistication to scent, really pulling it down, preventing it from becoming too floral or fresh. The finish on the skin is smooth and creamy but it still has the green floral freshness and soft rose. There’s a lovely balance.
And the bottle! As I said, I just love it. Rather than overly girly, the opaque dusty pink looks expensive and sophisticated with its gold band. Pink really doesn’t get much better than this!
Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme is available from 23rd July 2014 and starts at £35. Find the current Boss Collections at Boots.
