Boss The Scent Eau De Toilette

Hugo Boss believes in a different type of seduction. Slow, steady, tense with anticipation, the Boss way of seduction is an art, which finds a perfect balance between confidence and nonchalance.

The Scent reveals a different aspect of the Boss man. It pays tribute to his personal rather than professional achievements. This is a man whose success has always proved seductive. It is evident in the way he carries himself, the cut of his suit, and his self-assured charisma.

This distinctive statement about seductiveness marks the brand's new major fragrance, taking it into the territory of emotional rather than intellectual intelligence.

"I'm honored to be representing Boss Parfums as an Ambassador in their latest perfume campaign. I have for a long time admired Boss for achieving the perfect balance between the classic and the contemporary. This campaign encapsulates the iconic spirit of the brand and reflects my own tastes and attitudes towards a truly unique fragrance."

Made in: UK

The Fragrance
The Scent beguiles with a blast of spicy ginger, before fusing to a heart of maninka fruit and lavender. The drydown is anchored by an intense, burnished leather.

The aphrodisiac maninka fruit, evocative of passion fruit and rum, is an exclusive ingredient from Africa. Well, I couldn't detect any of those but a little tinge of persimmon kept tantalizing my senses. Perhaps I should whip up a cocktail for a better gander? Heh!

Unlike many perfumes for the gentlemen, it doesn't have that little something that epitomizes man. It turns out to be remarkably unisex due to the fresh, and fruity notes. The subtle whiff of leather at the end deepens and seals the form of the fragrance.

It feels a bit lacking longevity wise; I had to press my nose to my wrist after 30 minutes or so to catch the scent. But I doubt that the gentleman would remember to carry a Travalo with him while he is out and about, so he may want to layer with the other products in the range to extend his scent throughout the day.

The Flacon
I have never seen a design quite like this before... the bars represent a cage of sorts for the spirit of seduction (the amber juice) and depressing the nozzle would unleash its full potential to the world!
