Hugo XY fragrance notes

Reviews of Hugo XY


Not only not the best of HUGO BOSS but also is far ADG.HUGO XY is a Elevating fragrance that Energizes the body and Revives the spirit. one of those fragrances that dont Need to Scream, Because whatever happens,It is always Refresh!A Modern and Gentle scent without being overwhelming.

Innocent,Soft,Fresh,Soothing,Green, Clean,Casual,Airy and Certainly a Common Fragrance. It begins Nice with a Fresh Blend of Bergamot and Pear Leaf.The Middle Notes by Mint and Basil is not Loud and Unfortunately The base Notes is Too Weak and Light on my skin.In fact The whole composition is Average.

It is not Overpowering and you can use it all day without getting a headache.XY relaxes the mind and spirit.It also Evokes the freshness of every moment.Suitable for EVERYDAY use and a Debonair Character at HOT weather.Anyway if you have a Normal Style this one is for You!


Longevity?Below Average on my skin.

I bought this due to quite a nice opening.

The drydown however is horrible and made me feel quite sick.

Passed this on after only one try.

Boss, How the Mighty Hath Fallen

One of the better recent releases by Boss. Most of the smell is pear tree leaf. I don't detect a top or base note, it is all just pear tree leaf.

It is unique though. No one compliments me on this though. Definitely closer to the skin. Pleasant smell, just not anything that I will spend money on again.

Pros: Unique
Cons: Projection, longevity, compliments"

This is a nice generic scent. It really reminds me of A&F's cologne 41. The bottles are even almost identical, I wonder which came first. Honestly 41 to me has a bit more going for it. It has an extra hint of something (it reminds me of a peppery or spicy cucumber). Anyways this cologne was nothing too special, very, very casual. I wouldn't say it's a room sprayer, but it's not too far from it. That's what my vert cologne from pac sun is and this isn't too far from that.

I purchased this fragrance because of it's great appealing peppery freshness and modern cord to it, but be aware! - after it settles it has a almost suffocating sweet oder that made me throw both the EDT and Stick right in the bin.

An extremely fresh, cool and crisp fragrance. It projects well and has decent longevity to boot. As someone born and raised in upstate New York, I spent a great deal of time outdoors in and around wooded areas. To me, this smells like a forest after a light rainfall on a spring morning. The crushed ice accord gives it a cool, aquatic feeling but on top of a woodsy base. Top it off with a touch of mint and basil and some pear leaves and you get something really pleasant and calming but with a fresh crispness to it. It basically reminds me of the Radiohead song Creep—soothing yet frenetic at the same time. In his YouTube review, Kerosene said he even sprays this on his pillow at night because it's so soothing. Quite an endorsement.

I see this working for pretty much all ages and it can definitely be worn year round. Distinctly masculine but very inoffensive and with a youthful energy. It feels casual to me but I don't think it would be so outrageous to wear it with a suit.

Not everyone will rate this fragrance as high as I do, but I'd be hard pressed to find anyone who would actually say it smells bad
