Boss in Motion White Edition Review

Boss in Motion launched in 2002. Since then, there have been 5 flankers in the series, of which 2 have been better than most of Boss’ permanent output (Green and Blue editions). Boss in Motion White Edition is the latest addition to the range.

bimwhiteWhite Edition opens with a similar Orange note to the original Boss in Motion, without the bubbly smell. It quickly proceeds to a clear steamed rice smell, very similar to the newest DKNY offering.
In the heart there is a kind of Woody softness, reminiscent to me of the ‘nothing’ that I smell when I sniff the “smooth, woody, ambery” aromachemical Iso E Super. The Saffron note is very quiet, and very similar to that in CdG’s 8 88 – it is slightly metallic and strangely warm. It doesn’t last long at all, and a Lilac note with Violet Leaf greenness is the next thing that appears. The spice notes are present, but are so indistinguishable and tame that you have trouble making them out unless you really concentrate on them. I imagine that most Boss consumers would run a mile from anything truly spicy and edgy.
The drydown is the same powdery and plastic Vetiver and Cedar as the DKNY, with a sweet-ish Musk. Considering the notes listing looked incredibly promising, the result is unexciting. White Edition isn’t generic in the slightest, but it is quite plain.

Top: Ruby Orange, Basil
