Thread: Hugo Boss Bottled Night
finally the commercial.
I smelled this the other day. It's in Debenhams and Boots stores here in Ireland. I wasn't expecting much and yet it still managed to disappoint. It smelled like nothing really. I couldn't really detect a single note as such, just a sort of generic men's edt smell. Sort of an alcochol smell, with nothing else of note. Awful stuff.
Very "Boss" scent, done in the best traditions of Boss/Hugo. I used Hugo Dark Blue long time ago, and now it is not available to compare with, but the first think that came in my head when I tried Boss Bottled.Night was: "Dark Blue!". I can be wrong, but I'm sure that the character of the juice and the specific 'Boss" note in the Night are the same as in the Dark Blue.
Boss Bottled.Night is like the mix of previous Boss scents (Selection, Hugo Element) based on Hugo Dark Blue and original Boss Bottled. It starts powdery and spicy, then becomes fresher and flowery. And finally appears that "Boss" synthetic note - something green and sweet. But the result is complex, the fragrance is modern and, I'm sure, most of men and women could find it sexy. Boss Bottled.Night is not original, but it's the best development of Boss/Hugo/Baldessarini theme for at least last 10 years.
Had a try at a department store of this fragrance. Nothing special. What's with 2010 releases so far...Bleu de Chanel...now this...sigh
Verdict: Stick to the original Boss Bottled aka Boss No.6
It reminds me of Obsession Night PH and Beckham Night - but doesn't quite last as long. I didn't think much of it the first half hour I tested it, then thought it was pretty good for a few hours, then it sort of disappeared.
I'm not sure what pupose Boss Bottled Night serves. I've mainly always worn the regular Boss Bottled at night - never thought it a day scent.
P.S. - I wonder if we'll ever get morning versions of scents?
Tried it today. I don't think there's any violet in it. The first woosh is great - sort of fresh and spicy - if only it lasted! (birch leaf and cardamom). It fades quickly into a generic pleasant clean smell. One word I wouldn't use to describe it is distinctive.
I've finally figured out why I don't 'Bottled Night'. It’s too sweet for a masculine fragrance and rather generic. Imagine standing in queue for a Spanish seaside disco on a warm summer evening at 11.00 pm and the smell from all the freshly sprayed youngsters, male and female, blended into one generic pleasant fragrance - That's 'Bottled Night'
