Hugo Boss founded the company in Metzingen, Germany in 1924 and named the brand after himself. The label began as a clothing manufacturer, originally supplying uniforms, before moving on to men’s suits. In 1985 the company became publicly owned and launched its perfume and cologne line in the same year. The brand is now popular across the world, famous for its stylish clothing, accessories and fragrances.
Dark Blue was created by Beatrice Piquet and Alan Astori in 1999. The bottle resembles a cocktail shaker, combining the fun side of the brand with the sophisticated smell of the cologne.
