    Hugo Boss designed the original Stormtrooper outfits, so it makes sense that he would design the fragrance.

    However, we should probably takes this opportunity to preempt the inevitable thread:...
  2. Re: Power of suggestion vs the sense of smell.

    It happens a lot in reviews, I think, although I may have an especially poor nose. Also, the name of the fragrance suggests the frame of reference that people begin with. I suspect the descriptions...

    I picked: Dzing, Dzongha, Tea for Two, Mechant Loup and Timbuktu. With the exception of Mechant Loup , I picked them because I remembered them being discussed a lot (though not always with favor). ...
