A sweet pleasant scent. Long lasting with good sillage. I can smell: vanilla, spearmint, spices and tea. I think it's one of the best Boss scents for men. BIG thumbs up!!

Its Extremely sweet, almost too sweet. But for summer its so smooth and tasty. great for summer, wear with confidence
What a nice surprise!!!!!! This scent took me for a tizzy..... I am not super crazy about the over smell of the scent but it definitely will get you compliments. I gave this a full wearing at work. When I got to the office and sat down at my desk I was starting to doubt this fragrance after reading the reviews on here and was thinking about taking back to the store. A few minutes later a female Co-worker walks in and she says who has on cologne? It smells really niiiiccceee. She walked over to me smelled my neck and says yep it's you and asked me what it was and I gladly told her. A few hours later I went to another office located at another branch and as I walked passed another female gave me almost the same exact compliment. So everyone is spot on that this is a office scent and it will get you compliments. I was truly amazed because i was getting ready to take it back and decided not to because of the compliments I am getting. I don't mind wearing a fragrance that is not my favorite but gets compliments. I have worn fragrances that I love and have never gotten a compliment on it. At this price and the compliments you receive Def give this a try. I am so glad I did. Also, I forgot to mention the projection and longevity is SUPERB.... believe it or not I got a full 8 hours out of this beast.
Smells good. But no real need to smell good when it lasts only 3 hours on my skin. It is very strong, recommend for people 28 and up. Only bought it because it was 7 American dollars at my local TJ Maxx store. So I said, "Why not, cheaper than buying a sample, better off getting descent size bottle for 7 bucks". I would not spend over 30 dollars for this. EDIT: I agree with the review below me, "there is nothing aqua about this fragrance".
Maybe it is me, but Elements Aqua is not aqua at all; opens ok but too sweet and fades out quickly. Will not get a 2nd .
The citrus and suede opening of Aqua had me reeling and wondering if I'd found a contender for CK's Obsession Night, as the approach was different but the body was quite similar. Within five minutes on my skin the jig was up and the pleasantries were dropped to reveal a dull, powdery 'suede accord' topped by a screechy, synthetic-as-hell citrus which could only be detected close to the skin. It did not improve with time.
It is a good fragance for summer but with time is a little boring , never use continuously.
Maybe it is me but this smell just like the original 360 Perry Ellis for men. I think 360 was even launched before Elements Aqua.....so much for originality here.
Elements Aqua, by the by, is not an aquatic. The only "aqua" thing about this fragrance is the bottle and the liquid inside. What it is, actually, is a fresh-fruity fragrance that's both creamy and sweet. Lemme try and explain it in a more metaphorical way: Égoïste (the original) and Xeryus Rouge come home late one night sometime in 1995 after an Oasis concert. They make love, and almost a year later, Elements Aqua by Hugo Boss is born. Several years later, Égoïste and Xeryus Rouge go at it one last time and produce Joop! Jump, which is Aqua's new baby brother. They all lived happily ever after..... So, anyway, is Elements Aqua worth seeking out because of its rarity alone? No. Does it smell nice? Um...... sure, but I'd much rather wear Égoïste, or Xeryus Rouge than this one. It's not my cup of tea, per se.
Now this is some very nice fragrance. Very wet indeed. Calvin Klein Truth for men is an obvious copy of this scent, so all of you Boss Elements Aqua lovers who are having problems with obtaining it, CK Truth for men is the answer. To say the truth, I was a little bit surprised when I smelled this scent. I was expecting something sharper, but it didn't dissapoint me at all, but surprised me! Couple of friends of mine were telling me that this scent was best Boss scent to them and they feel sorry it is unobtainable in Croatia. It is a very versatile fragrance good for whole year. Longevity and projection are great. Update: This one really grew on me, distinctive and very viril, invigorating. Definitely not for winter. One will pull of maximum out this one in spring and summer.
