BOSS The Collection Velvet & Amber Fragrance Reviews


This is a good smell. High quality. The blend is just perfect, warm, sweet and heavy (not to heavy) in a verry cozy way.


This is one quite amazing perfume. Heavy but not overloaded and stuffy. Starts out with amber all over the place, and some animalic undertows. The amber in the heart notes is everything but "easy fun playful" (like in some of the less elegant ambers), more adult and extravagant.

The vanilla is always there below the surface, never takin' over the show.

Someone wrote "smooth" in another review. That's definietly the word. A smooth but ever so present amber.


God, this is soooo beautiful! Soft, rich and evolving amber that never leaves you - longevity is great, sillage not so good. But anyway this is a great creation, and for me is far better than TF AA (this one is so "in your face"amber that it's almost agressive) and it really is a must try.


A very smooth, soft scent that's blended together very well. The amber in the fragrance makes it reminiscent of Pure Malt, with a dose of vanilla.

To me, it doesn't smell like vanilla is an overpowering ingredient, it seems more like it shares the top spot with the amber equally. It does have a "classy" smell to it and it would be a nice accessory if you were going out in a suit.

In regard to the previous comment stating that this is somewhat like Le Male, I don't smell that at all. While it's true that they both have vanilla in them, I smell no other similarity. I HATE Le Male and if this were similar, I would have thrown the bottle away.

As far as the exclusivity to Nordstrom's and Harrod's, it's a nice marketing move but there's nothing special enough with the fragrance to justify a $140-160 retail price. If it were at the Macy's counter for $60, I don't think anyone would pay particular attention to it and I doubt it would cause much of a stir.

I cannot believe how beautiful this perfume is.

I am wearing it right now along with silk and jasmine on the other arm (I am a woman btw). This amber is masculine, soft, dry and powdery and it is also warm and sweet at the same time. It reminds me of a toned down, more natural, less cloying and more expensive version of Le Male (must be all this vanilla!). It gets slightly spicier with time on my skin. Such a simple composition but such a magnificent scent. The kind of perfume a man would wear and stand out of a crowd. There is beauty in simplicity in this case. I think a woman who likes pure amber scents would be able to appreciate this as well.

I cannot believe this is Hugo Boss. Super sexy and serene at the same time. A confident perfume.

I have to add, really, this is the sexiest man perfume I have ever smelled.

honestly, I won't be able to describe it as good as the 2 reviewers below, this is the best Amber, best longevity, best projection, and one of the best perfumes I owned in last 10's actually my hidden gem, if I was asked what I was wearing I usually mislead people, in fact I don't care as long as I'll be the only one wearing it in 100,000 man.

True the Tom ford's amber is rubbish next to this.

what can I say?

Simply magnificent


I agree 100% with fragrancejunky this one of the best ambers out there, I hate to admit it but I consider myself a bit of "Snob", initially I thought Boss jumped on the "private collections" craze, But VELVET & AMBER is what I consider could belong to a high end collection, if you blind test it you would speculate it's a TOM FORD quality or something from that category, the amber here is different, creamy, bitter, amazingly smooth the scent covers you like a rich expensive velvet, with Luscious tenderness and sweet companionship, the balsamic ingredient gives a mesmerising attitude. No matter how hard I will try to describe it I won't do it justice.for the record I don't use it everyday I wanna save it for the classy occasions.

As far I know, it is sold exclusively at NORDSTROM in North America and a friend of mine from the UK spotted it in London.

By the way, I like the fact the riff raffs are not giving it the time of day.

longevity: 8h+
Projection: I would say good, you don't need people to notice you from the end of the hall.
Blind buy: SAFE, I would be baffeled if someone didn't like it
Originality: 10/10
Scent : 9.5/10

I'll order one more very soon.

I have TF AA and Serge AS, but this one puts them both to shame, I'll pick this one everyday especially over the TF

Chapeau! to Boss for this creation


I have been looking for a good amber fragrance for 2 years now, and I finally found it. I must admit, at first, I condescendingly didn't care about it. I thought it was just a random release from Boss. but after I have seen all the fuss about, I said "what the heck, let's give it a try", and once I sprayed it I was completely overwhelmed with that soft velvety sweet, ambery smell, at the same time you will catch a whiff of bitterness in the background here and there which I should note I have never experience in any perfume before. I confidently can say that this one of the BEST Amber based perfumes out there next to Ambre Precieux, Ambre 114 and Ambre sultan.

and if you came across it and didn't buy, you are the one who loses, don't say I didn't warn you !

As for me, as soon as I find one on sale somewhere I'll buy it.
