Neutral Reviews of Hugo Red by Hugo Boss


Hugo Red: as Hugo Boss fragrances go, it’s pretty good. It has a citrus / green opening with pepper for aromatic support. Nothing new here – quite typical of dozens of other fragrances. The grapefruit / pepper combination makes it seem somewhat ozonic.. The opening lasts for about 15 – 20 minutes and then moves on to the fruity middle where the combination of pineapple, rhubarb, and cedar sort of mirror the opening notes at a lesser extent and a softer vibration. The base is a generic tonka and amber – mercifully not outrageously sweet.

Pretty good scent. The synthetics don’t bother and the accords are pleasant, which, in my humble opinion, is quite an accomplishment for a Boss fragrance. Average sillage and good longevity.

Red is just a name and the bottle, the scent itself is as transparent as water, not just literally but in a sense of how it smells. Why am I rating it neutral then? Well the concept is not all that bad, it's the implementation and performance where it all gets downhills. Original Hugo by Hugo in all of it's syntheticity still has it charms and is generally accepted by the public, albeit not even close to be the legend. Hugo's flankers "just different" and "red" - forget about them.
