Reviews of Boss Orange Man

This isn't bad. Mostly just a creamy vanilla, with some red apple/orange smell. It doesn't smell overly sweet, or synthetic, despite other reviewers. I don't really get any incense.. mostly just vanilla. Nice change of pace though from the typical tonka bean.

It may not be a generic tonka bean, but yes it is still a bit generic.. well maybe just a bit simple. Pleasant though.

This is a very sweet frag. The apple comes off immediately when you first spray it. After about 30 minutes the apple is still strong but the vanilla comes out as well. But it is not a smooth vanilla, more of a very sweet vanilla. It could be the mix of the apple and the vanilla which makes the vanilla even more sweet.

For me this frag is too sweet! Personally I like the apple note but the others mix in such a way that it is just too sweet. I was hoping that the woody notes would cut though the sweet notes. But unfortunately that only happens after 2+ hours. Which is too long for me to wait.

If you are into smooth sweet fragrances, this is for you!

Overall: 3.5/10
Longevity: 5/10
Sillage: 5/10

I kept waiting for the blatant synthetics, the sticky sweetness, and the the boring, predictable movements. They didn’t come. Can this one really be a Hugo Boss fragrance? I have my doubts…

Boss Orange opens with a very nice green / fruity accord (what kind of fruit, I don’t know… but I doubt it's apple) that contains a warm, pleasant note in it. I am supposing that the warmth comes from the Bubinga wood… but there’s a slight aromatic feeling in the background that could be the incense. Those are the possibilities; otherwise, I don’t smell either the wood or the incense. And I don’t get the vanilla. Other reviewers call Orange Man "sweet" but it doesn’t seem overly sweet to me; I suppose it could be my dry skin minimizing the sweetness.

I kind of like this one, which would make it the second or third Boss fragrance I can enjoy. That happens so seldom with this maker and I just am forced to give Orange Man a thumbs up. Because it's a Boss fragrance, and with so many negative votes... I could be missing something.

Sophisticated vanilla and incense with a nice hint of masculine spices and pleasingly acrid smoke. This is a "sweet n fruity" for men done right! Delightful while it lasts, but longevity is only 5 hours or so. Wears very close to skin. I like it quite a lot overall...

I have taken time while doing my wardrobe list to write on this after seeng such negative reviews from one of Hugo Boss's amazing scents. That's right. All you people that consider this a 'sythentic' or 'powdery' cologne then it truly shows your lack of courage in wearing a cologne that attracts the opposite sex not just the nose your wear on your face. Only con with this fragrance is the sillage it's more of a up close and personal but when ur with a lady friend you can stop smelling your neck I think the more close and personal the better. Recommended not night time use.

It's sat on my shelf. Tacky. May be why they were selling it with a free bag!
