Reviews of Hugo

I used to wear it in my 20ties and I used to get a lot of compliments with it.

But it bored me after a while and I think the formulation has been modified by more synthetic ingredients.

It think it's more suitable for young people and beginner noses.

Classic....tons of character and plenty of fruit and charm. This is probably the scent i've owned that has had most complements. Thank you Hugo!

I really like this one. To me there is nothing artificial about it. In a sense nearly every frag is going to be artificial. How often in life will you encounter any combination of smells from any one fragrance at once? Never. If someone cant complain its artificial then they will complain its linear. IMHO HUGO by Hugo Boss is a classic that should be revered and put up there with Fahrenheit, ADG, and cool water. Just because a fragrance is older doesnt mean it isnt any good. There is a reason this has been in production for nearly 20 years. I dont think this is for the younger generation though. There is a lot going on. This seems to contradict the hugo marketing but I would say this is a great staple for someone in their mid to late 30's who grew up when this scent was created. What I love the most is that I get something different every time I wear it. And to my nose it is plenty strong with great projection and it gets a lot of compliments.

Can't sounder stand the problem with this one, I have had this in my collection for many years and one things is for certain it definitely attracts females, sillage and longetivity is mild but gotta take the good with bad and the smells for for this Hugo Boss fragrance is most definitely good! Try it on a night out in town will not disappoint

To my nose, elusive. Runs scared for the shrubbery straightaway from slyish ingenue of canteen bottling. I can agree with comparison to Diesel Fuel For Life, but Diesel sticks around much better. Not a bad scent at all, quite agreeable actually, but this liquidity is as camouflage in a bottle. Watery Diesel's Foreshadowed Incognito.

* I wish to offer this scent an earnest apology. I must have had winter time lack of proper smelling abilities on the day I slandered its good standing. Not near as weak as I initially thought. All in all, not bad at all.

After having tried this on, one can see it was developed in the 90s. It surely smells like it.

Simply put it's boring...
