Like a kid standing outside a candy store with a pocket bulging with loonies, you were ready. Then it happened. You booked time off work, watched every match, ate most meals at the local pub and then, elated (or crushed), clapped your mates on the back and began the four-year waiting process all over again. But what if you could relive the FIFA World Cup over and over every single day?

You can with a spritz of Hugo Boss’ latest and limited edition, eau de toilette Boss Bottled United.

With its energetic and intoxicating combination of the crisp outdoors and an urban warm feel, it’s almost as though you were on the field with the players. And this twist on the Boss Bottled original will have you cheering long after you’ve paid homage to the game and soccer greats Julian Draxler, Philippe Coutino, Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata have hung up their cleats.

Captured in the signature, silver Boss cylinder, this new scent opens with herbal South Africa buchu plant and blood orange to give it a tart citrus edge. Fresh spearmint and peppermint are mixed with earthy orris to create a lively, yet down-to-earth vibe before being added to a blend of sharp vetiver, spicy patchouli and intimate cashmere. The overall effect is woody, warm and elegant with a hint of expectation, but you can only enjoy it now if you act fast. Like the FIFA World Cup, this fragrance will soon be gone before you’re ready to let go.

Hugo Boss, Boss Bottled United Limited Edition EDT is $97 for 100 ml and $163 for 100 ml, available at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
