    Boss Elements is still my favourite, it's the most versatile.

    I like the richness of Boss Bottled (Boss No6)

    The mossiness of Dark Blue, makes it the most unique and interesting of the Boss scents for me.

    Baldessarini I like a lot, but it doesn't last as long with strength on me as I'd like.

    I'm partial towards Hugo XY. I'm just a fan of transparent, sorta minty fragrances. So if you're a fan of transparent fragrances, that's worth checking out.

    Boss Bottled (a.k.a. #6) is the best of the lineup, imo. Boss Elements, Baldessarini and Baldessarini Ambré are pretty good too. Haven't cared for the others I've tried.

    This. Baldessarini Ambre and Strictly private are somewhat b/wearable too but i think they were issued when Baldessarini was already independent again.

    Whenever I see Hugo Boss fragrances mentioned I think of the old thread by MonkeyManMatt entitled Hugo Boss has left the building.

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/168...t-the-building.

    I was once provoked by Dark Blue, but the conclusions of Petruccijc and The_Good_Life are my conclusions too.

    Although I don't like this house overall, I like a surprising number of mostly older fragrances from them:

    Boss Number One
    Baldessarini
    Boss Sport
    Boss Spirit
    Elements
    Elements Aqua

    Hi Gary,
    I've got those too, but am not particularly fond of Elements Aqua.
    I picked a big bottle of Del Mar the other day for $20, and while not enthralled with it, I like it better than Erolfa.

    I tend to agree with you, their newer releases have seemed more like crowd followers to me. All are pleasant and nice, but not really compelling to me.

    I like Boss #1, my father signature.

    Also my brother signature Boss Soul its not bad at all.

    And Boss n°6 deserves a try.

    I think that if i`d have three boss fragrances, they would be Baldessarini, Boss Soul and Dark Blue. But neither of the three stays more than 4 hours on me, so i don`t have and don`t see myself purchasing them in the future. It was funny, tough, that in the past i was gifted with a copy of Boss Soul that costed 20% of it`s price and smelled equal, and also had a better longevity than the original...

    Hugo (the one Duc mentioned) and Boss Bottled, are the only two I like; although Hugo > Bottled in my opinion. Bottled is too sickly for me.

    When I was new to fragrance I really liked Hugo Energise, not sure how would I feel now as I haven't worn it for at least 2 years.

    My fav from this house includes:

    Boss Bottled
    Baldessarini Cologne (have yet to try the concentree version)
    Boss No. 1
    Current Top 5

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. A*Men Pure Malt
    3. L'instant Extreme
    4. Nasomatto Duro
    5. CDG - Kyoto

    Boss bottled/#6 is worth a sniff
    Boss #1's perfect for what it is, but many don't like that style.

    I can't think of a third that's worth even smelling. and the above two i could (and do!) live without.
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    +1 (and, to the best of my knowledge, discontinued). Sadly, I can't get enthused about anything else from this house.

    Boss Bottled/#6
    Baldessarini Ambre
    Baldessarini
    Hugo

    That's 4, and that's all that has really impressed me. To knock off one, I'd get rid of Baldessarini. The flanker 'Ambre' is pretty good and serves a purpose in my collection, it's quite classy for its price. Boss Bottled, is irreplaceable, there's really nothing quite like it, it can project up to the 8 hour point for me, and the smell and quality are there from beginning to end. Hugo though, may smell a littler cheaper, a little harder to dissect notes, a little more refined, poor longevity and projection, but it has a place in my heart (lol) and gets a lot, and I mean a lot of compliments.

    Boss Bottled, or Boss #6 (same thing). Really, this one is the best. You should not get 3 fragrances from this house. It, to be honest with you, is not that great of a house. Really, get #6 and move on.
