Most likely, no matter what way you tell her, she will be offended.

Hmm... perhaps gifting her some perfume would be a good investment. And if it's done around christmas time she won't think anythings up. And then when she's smelling..err... shall we say "different" you can ask if she has tried out the perfume you got her.

You should find an excuse (presidents day, labor day, boxing day etc) to buy her some perfume.

I think telling your boss just like that would be a great idea!

There is really no polite way to tell your boss that news. And doing it would be very likely to get you fired.
You would need to get help from somebody who doesn't work there. They could tell her in a polite way, and then not have to face her again.
