Reviews of Boss The Scent

Any time you research Hugo Boss "The Scent", you will always see mixed reviews. I'm honestly not sure as to why because this is a fantastic scent. It's simple but complex. Definitely more of a fall and winter fragrance to me, but wouldn't be heinous to wear in the spring and summer. It has a leathery note to it but isn't overwhelming. I would suggest if you're going to purchase this fragrance, buy the intense version for much better performance and also a slightly stronger note of ginger in the opening. Overall, I like this scent. My wife does as well and also it is a compliment grabber. It projects decent and lasts 4-6 for me.

I've smelled and worn worse, but at least many of those had some character. I'm not sure what the intent was with The Scent since it seems like it pulls in many directions, going nowhere. Best I can summarize is that it's generically fresh and sweet with moderate projection and longevity.

Not bad, but not really good at anything.

Decent new scent from Hugo Boss. At first, this fragrance was only available at Macy's; now, it's pretty much anywhere you look, which isn't a bad thing. Not totally unique, but I like its leathery, ginger and lavender based quality...good, non-cloying basic scent for work and a night out with friends. Doesn't last too long on me, but otherwise I'd say give it a sample spritz and see what you think.

One of those ‘Oh please, not again’ versions of a slightly spicy and fresh woody ‘masculine’. The sickly sweet wood’n’spice aromachemicals that form the backdrop are now so common in budget masculines they should be listed as bulking agents. They provide a recognizable filler, shading in the vast blank spaces of the perfumers’ imagination when asked to bring a product to market that will cost pennies and sync with the unwavering mediocrity demanded by market testing. Up front is a peppy lavender that sadly instantly conjoins with the syrup in the base. There’s a hint of ginger, something vaguely resembling fruit on the turn, and some irritating aromatics that are like garish copies of herbal accents à la Cool Water. There’s nothing of the vaguest interest here.

Hmmm...I definitely like it, but after you get past the top notes (which happens quickly), it smells very similar to Dior Homme Parfum in the drydown, albeit a weaker version. On me, it's a skin scent after 3-4 hrs and lasts for 5-6 overall.

There's no way I can be as descriptive as darvant, great reviewer of notes and structure.. I'll describe it from a typical consumer in a department store point of view.. It smells like boss have tried their hand at the trendy amber offerings and have done an ok job.. It's spicey..its sickly and got an amber and leather vibe.. Boss bottled characteristics.. Longevity I'm unsure about as I'm going off a tester strip.. I can imagine it getting compliments as it has that sweet vibe that many women seem to buzz around. Overall very safe and inviting.. Better worn in the evening or winter.. I'll probably buy a 50ml
