Hugo Boss is known for its clothes and shoes but also more and more for their fragrances. They got some great fragrances and really stand out from the other brands. Hugo Boss Selection - Eau de Toilette is another fragrance and just as the other ones it's one to be.
The bottle looks attractive. It has a rectangular shape. The bottle is transparent and has fine black lines on the side. The front features 'Boss' and underneath 'Selection'. On the bottle is a round cap. This cap is easily to take off and to put it back on again. On the back of the bottle are only the ingredients and contents lists. I think it's a beautiful bottle, especially since it is transparent and because the black sides are very beautiful.
This Eau de Toilette is easy to use. It is a normal spray that is not too wide. I usually spray 3 times. I think that is just enough. The smell is delicious. According to Hugo Boss is a combination of spicy and woody ingredients. I can't really smell it. I think it's a very nice, sweet, fresh and delicate scent. The smell is not strong, but you can really smell it. It struck me that it is a very soft scent. After spraying it doesn't smell strongly of alcohol, which is the case with most fragrances. I find it a very pleasant and refreshing scent.
I like most fragrances of Hugo Boss, but this is my opinion though one of the best. I find this especially because it has such a soft and sweet scent but is still very refreshing. He absolutely doesn't overwhelm you but the smell does last for a long time. You can still notice it after a good few hours. You can buy a bottle of 90ml for around 35 pounds. Not cheap but you go quite a while with the bottle, so for me it's worth it.
Boss By Hugo Boss has 50th birthday in this year, and for that i decided to buy this perfume, my old perfume has from eSprit, but now I bought that, and this was really good choice.
This perfume has some woody smell, what I really like and hopefully everyone else also like it. I bought it from super market for about £30, great price, Huh?, yes It's great price, even my old perfume is more expensive, but this perfume is much, much better.
There were three choices in the supermarket, 30ml, 50ml and 90ml, personally I choosed 90ml, great size, because 50ml is really to small for me.
Also bottle outlook is nice, great transparent bottle with beautiful color.
Also there are a lot of more perfumes with different smells, I liked some perfume with grapefruit smell too, but this was more expensive and also I like this smell more.
In summary really great perfume, recommended to every man.
Hugo Boss Selection, was their 17th fragrance at its time of release (had since been overtaken by the overly-advertised XX-XY brand). If you've seen the advert with the desirable man/men objectifying male perfection, you may have bought the fragrance. And if... for some unknown reason you need to know what it smells like, this is the article for you.
Selection carries notes of mandarin, grapefruit, cedar leaves, and star anise, patchouli, and green accord. Despite the obvious fruit based content, the undoubted smell is that of a 'woody' one. A smell almost animal-like, it is syrupy, and undoubtedly sweet. More black forest gateau than lemon meringue. It is also a very deep fragrance, with manly undertones (30+). It's the smell of a man who has travelled the world but got lost along the way, someone who isn't akin to absolute luxury. A mans man, but a mysterious one at that.
The Top Note. Bursts of cirtusy freshness from the grapefruit and mandarin
The Heart Note. Aromatic spices combine wit cedar leaves, geranium and star anise
The Base Note. Masculine scents of cedarwood with musky accord

Head to http://www.bossfragrances.com/ click on selection, and then head to 'free sample' on the right hand side. Its even possible to send one with a postcard and personal message to a friend/partner if you request it.
This is my selection. An aromatic fragrance which stands out from the overly citrus based fragrances most men seem to use today. Without being brash and sickly like them, selection is able to linger without giving away too much information- A great addition to any gentlemen's collection.
