How many perfumes do you have? Do you collect them or prefer to have a capsule perfume wardrobe? I’m a collector and I have in excess of 30 bottles of fragrance that are all sat snugly on my chest of drawers in my dressing room. From ultra high end to cheap and cheerful celebrity fragrances, I tend to favour those floral-fruity scents building up to heavier scents for the evening. A perfect daytime scent comes in the form of Boss Jour Pour Femme, which was kindly gifted to me at the OMG! Awards.
I’ve been told off by Jennifer from Heinemann for saying that perfume is in a bottle, when in fact it is called a ‘flacon’. I’m going to now try and remain correct by calling it a flacon. Boss Jour Pour Femme was launched back in 2013 as an exclusive scent for World Duty Free which is where I first experienced the delighful light freshness of this daytime fragrance. The flacon is a milky white, tall and slender and with gold detailing and a transparent lid.
It’s a definite floral fragrance, light and unassuming yet fresh and sophisticated. The fragrance has been developed to show the three faces of a woman; Inspiration, composure and ease. White flowers mix with effervescent citrus. The top notes of grapefruit blossom and lime sparkle onto the skin, with a heart of white flowers; freesia, Lily of the Valley and honeysuckle. The base notes jump out once the scent has warmed down into an almost masculine finish. Creamy amber mingles with white birch. It’s a very soft yet elegant, almost romantic fragrance.
Boss Jour Pour Femme is sold for around £49.50 from all good fragrance stockists.
