    Hugo Element by Hugo Boss

    Very synthetic smelling right from the start due to the calone, but certainly not unpleasant. With average longevity and sillage, it probably works best as a daytime urban casual or office scent, especially suited for the summer. Its complete lack of sensuality means it can be used by anyone from the mid-teens upwards. However, there is also an immaturity to the scent which probably gives it a 50 year old upper age limit IMO. It might also pass as a refreshing unisex fragrance. This one tends to remind me of Lanvin L'Homme but is not quite as crisp or distinctive as that classic. Like many Boss fragrances, Boss Element is currently overpriced bearing in mind its averageness. Perhaps the best thing about this synthetically fruity, light and sporty scent is its oxygen-tank bottle design, which in its larger guises I find handsomely crystal clean and emphasizes the ozonic concept of the fragrance perfectly.
