Reviews of Boss Orange Man

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!

As soon as I had applied Orange, the very first scent I began to pick up was one of just straight alcohol, very similar to isopropyl, and very unsettling. Immediately, I considered washing it off, but I decided to let it dry to see if the alcohol "notes" began to die down. Five minutes later I was expecting to pick up on the red apple note, if even for just a second. Alas, what the scent had turned into was something more along the lines of a cheap spiced rum, something sickeningly sweet, what you might expect from your high school days of drinking shitty drive-thru liquor your older brother bought for you. An hour later, the fragrance was almost undetectable sans a faint spicy note from what I presume to be the Szechuan pepper. Overall, a disappointment from Boss.

The head notes are very attracting but it smells to synthetic. The fragrance doesn't last long enough on the skin.
