yeah...try soul for sure man...its a winner in my book because imo it smells like nothing else out there and i went through my bottle so quickly because i couldnt get enough of it!
I know that when I post on particular niche scents, it's often as a result of a feeling that I have to - given the considerable effort I went to in order to track down their obscure abodes and marvel at their exclusive prices.
Though I've worn and liked Elements, I agree with several of my esteemed colleagues that Boss No. 1 is the class of the bunch!
the original is/was great - a bit dated !!
The only frag thats not a cheap smelling crappetycrapcrap hugo smell is hugo dark blue.. its the only one thats got game.. but sad it get me sick and dissy, so cant wear it anymore... Thank god for john varvatos
guys! got a chance to sample Soul! its just great!!!! sampled elements too....was ok on paper but it didnt strike me the way soul did (need to try elements on skin though)....soul indeed is something spooky, mysterious & oriental it has amazing depth...somehow the packaging and the bottle doesnt really represent the scent all that well...

Check out my Fragrance Review Blog
Wishlist: Byredo Pulp, Creed Aventus, Montale Black Aoud, Original Santal, Dior Jules, Invasion Barbare, Pure Distance M
boss number 1 the original is the best scent in the hugo boss line.
Just on the tests I have had I like Hugo and Soul.
"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
Let me be the first to suggest Boss Pure. It's light and green and watery - the water is clear, but it has little flecks of green drifting up. I can smell it, but the people I'm talking to are barely noticing it (I think).

Boss No. 1
I love Hugo and always will, the sillage and longevity are both really good and it fishes a lot of compliments, and I enjoy the overall smell. I also second the new Hugo Pure, it's actually quite good, give it a try. And from the reviews on Basenotes in the directory, it seems Boss Bottled is very popular on here.
Boss Bottled is wonderful... that vanillic and fruity notes are unique.
I never owned a Hugo Boss fragrance...but XY is really good, but for that price I get a nicer one.
I've liked a few of the Boss line but wouldn't wear any today as they are a bit generic and all my friends have been wearing them for 15 years.
I would make an exception for Elements though, absolutely my favourite they've ever made. Difficult to find but when you do, it's usually cheap.
well my overall favourite which is in my all time top 5 is hugo. that stuff smells amazing to me and has gotten me the most compliemnts out of any fragrance i own. i also love boss bottled yet am not a fan of boss selection as it gives me a headache.
Boss number 1 was and is the best to me
Put me down for Elements... although Number One and Baldessarini are quite nice, too
hmm, overall not a huge fan of the boss line i gotta say but i own boss bottled and like it, its one of the good ones.
boss in motion is interesting, too, used to wear it from a samply but after some time it gave me such a headache, pity!!!
but the rest? not knocking me off!!
