Boss Orange for Men by Hugo Boss Orlando Bloom advertSienna Miller for Hugo Boss Boss Orange perfume

German fashion design house established in 1923. The company initially made worker's clothes, and later, during the war, uniforms. After the war, the company moved into men's suits and then womenswear. Hugo Boss died in 1948; his involvement with the Nazi party and possible corporate use of slave labor during the war created some controversy in the late 1990s. In 1999, the company agreed to pay funds to compensate former forced workers.

Current brands include Boss, Boss Black, Boss Selection, Boss Orange and Hugo.

Fragrances were introduced in the 1980s with Hugo Boss Number One. Other well-known scents include Boss Elements (men, 1993), Hugo (men, 1995), Hugo Woman (1997), Boss Bottled (1998), Hugo Dark Blue (men, 1999), Hugo Deep Red (women, 2001), Boss in Motion (men, 2002), Boss Intense (women, 2003). Fragrances were produced under licensing arrangements with Procter & Gamble until P&G's fragrance business was sold to Coty in 2015.
