Reviews of Boston Man

I bought this in Spain this year for €9.99 in the local supermarket and it is not out of production!
For this price the quality of this frag is incredibly good!
It smells very fresh, green and a little herbal and reminds me in some way as being a little brother of the great Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels though it's not smoky and less dark and way fresher/thinner.
Longevity and sillage are average (6 hrs) and it's best to use casual or to work.
Good for the mature man who doesn't want to spend a fortune on fragrances and is fine with just a few cheap frags without smelling cheap! Thumbs up! Rated: 7/10

This was my signature scent for about a decade..

It's an intense and long lasting fresh, masculine aquatic with a lovely, warm drydown. Always got lots of positive reactions ("you smell very good") from the ladies when I wore this EDT. I suppose it's officially out of production (?) which I find a real pity. It was also a very affordable cologne..

Perhaps, like myself, you are an admirer of certain scents of the Spanish House of Puig and of the twist of uniqueness and eccentric originality which it manages to give to some of its creations. To wit: its masterpiece, Quorum, which, despite sneers to the contrary, I still regard as a quintessence of masculine distinction and subtle blending; the sharp yet smooth beauty of Agua Lavanda; Sybaris, where Oscar Wilde meets Attila the Hun in the harem of an Oriental prince; Agua Brava, which, despite its ephemeral qualities and slight suggestion of vinegar, is a unique and somehow very Spanish amalgam of pine forest, bravado, swampy vegetation and murky waters; Vetiver de Puig, profound smell, musty, distinguished and mysterious, of a noble old grandfather.
I am less enamoured of productions like Aqua Quorum and the recent Quorum Silver. In both these cases, it seems to me, Puig offends against the dignity and eccentricity of its heritage by producing scents with no genuine trace of creativity at all. Copies of copies, more or less, mediocrity writ large.
At all events, I could not help being intrigued by certain other Puig productions which are virtually unattainable outside Spain - Brummel, Springfield, Soul of Springfield, Boston Man. Finally, with some difficulty, I managed to locate a bottle of Boston Man aftershave. A definite disappointment. Just another boring, uniformly green scent, determinedly middle of the road, with nothing whatsoever to lift it above the crowd. Boston Man? Mr. Ordinary might be a better name. By no means horrible, but neutral in every way.
