Hugo boss energise is one eau de toillette I still have and keep in the bathroom cabinet for any time wear. I like to wear this on colder days but I have worn it on warmer days too. It has a good spiced up effect on me and it mellows over the day.
The bottle with this is simple and has a bit of red on the front in a vertical panel. The word hugo is there for me to see and it looks minimal on the simple glass bottle.
My bottle has a sliver lid and a spray top. I find it easy to use and I only need a small squirt to each side of my neck after shaving. It works well that way. I don't have the box now but it was ok. I paid £33 for my bottle.
I think this is very energetic and lively and I like the peppery smell I can detect to this. I think its pink pepper and you can notice it a lot when you first spay this on the skin. It stays all day on me.
The coriander and cardamon mix well with the pepper and add to that spiced smell I get but they are lifted by citrus some where which lightens and freshens this for me.
I wear this when I want to put on a totally different aroma as I cannot think of any thing I have which smells like this one does. It has a lot of individuality and I like that.
My bottle is just a 75ml bottle but it has lasted a long time for me. I don't need much to get a great effect but I do need to be in the right mood to wear this. I think its the spice effect that does that and I either want it on or I don't.
I would recommend this but it won't suit every man as it is an interesting aroma that you either like or dislike. I get good comments about from some, but not all so I think you should try this out first.
For my 18th birthday I received a 75 cl bottle of Hugo Boss: Energise, two years later, although I do own a fair few different fragrances, I still have some left. The value for money of this product is simply brilliant and my story proves that.
It comes in a box that is perfect in size for the bottle and is packaged neatly and tidily to create a professional yet trendy look. The bottle itself also has a very original design, whilst looking quite simple in appearance it has a clever button on top about half the size of the lid which you press to get a puff of fragrance.
The smell is also fantastic and energising. Although hard to describe it is perfect for that manly feeling and great to wear when going out with friends. It is noticable but not too overpowering which I find is very important as you wouldn't want people smelling you half an hour before you arrive.
Overall this is a fantastic product which offers a great smell, great appearance and simply outstanding last. My girlfriend also loves the smell of this ;)
Bought this for my brother and one of his best friends' sister asked him to please leave the room 'cause the fragrance was so sexy it was driving her mad! It's a very modern fragrance which would wear well on the outdoors, sporty type of guy.
I recently bought Hugo Boss Energise for my boyfriend at Christmas time in 2009 after he said that he liked it.
It comes in a round bottle - quite a unique shape really - with the Hugo Boss red logo on the front. The aftershave inside is a pale pink coloured liquid and it has a silver coloured press button on top to emit the cologne.
The smell of this product is a clean, fresh one, perfect for day wear or evening. It is aimed at a wide audience of men ranging from teens to middle aged people.
The 75ml bottle comes in at about £40 in most high street shops which is fairly reasonable for a bottle of this size from a high end fragrance designer. It is also available in a gift set with 2 X 50ml shower gels.
I would definatley recommend getting the gift set for value for money.
I have to confess I am very hard to please when it comes to fragrances. I spend ages in the shop scouting round the testers and spraying them on those tiny pieces of test paper, and finally, after a long search I stopped at this; Hug Boss' Energise.
As the product says, it's a fragrance that's there to energise you; stimulate a cool and fresh oder from your body. At first, it can come across quite overpowering, but with all good Eau de Toilette's a few sprays is all you need with this item, and this is certainly the case with this one. I can see why some people would say it's sporty in nature, and I imagine that's certainly what the producers wanted to create, however, I got a more fruity, sweeter smell, which isn't to every guys taste. In all honesty, it was actually this fruity/sweet nature of the product that I changed what fragrance I used. Maybe it was that fact that I wore it for over a year and started to get too used to it's oder, but I guess a fragrance isn't really for life anyway.
As far as the packaging of this product, it has one of the best bottles I've ever seen. Forget those small, inappropriate buttons, that end up breaking when you're only half why through the bottle, this one comes with a good, large sturdy button, that you know won't leak of break before it's time. Also the ergonomics of the bottle are superb. It's shaped to ones hand, making it so simple to apply.
I guess this product doesn't necessarily have any faults, it's all a question of your own taste, or maybe the man you are buying it for. Want something cool, fresh, and quite fruity and sweet? Then this is the fragrance for you. All I'll say, is when you start to get sick of the product, move on, and come back later. I've had many people comment on this fragrance which have always been nice compliments. For around £25/bottle, it's in the league of most other male fragrances, so buy it because you like it.
I love my fragrances, it has to be said. Over the years I have tried out many, varying ones. From the fashion houses of Christian Dior and Prada to the 2 for £1 jerry cans. Every now and then you come across a fragrance that really grabs your attention, and for all the right reasons that one is Hugo Boss. Whether you want a sophisticated smell for that important meeting, or a sporty fragrance when you are out and about on a Friday night, this is a fragrance that ticks all the right boxes. Not to mention it is incredibly reasonable for the likes of Hugo Boss. The bottle is quite manly without being overbearing. The smell is quite subtle but lasts all day while warming with your body to develop the fragrance, meaning that the fresh, invigorating morning scent turns to a casual, smooth aroma by the evening. It really is an all day affair with the senses.
This is the best aftershave i have bought so far.. I get so many people asking what i am wearing as they like the smell and its a smell i dont get sick of either.
This comes Well packed in a small red box and would make a perfect gift for any male. (cheap too) Has quite a Fruity smell along with a "cool" smell too...
The spray design is cool and has a safety lock just incase young ones decide that your aftershave is a toy or something that they want to eat!
The best place to buy this is ebay or somewhere online. Avoid big places like boots as i find you will be paying about £5 - £6 more.
You can buy this product in three sizes, i think 75ml is the smallest and they range all the way up to 200 ml or 250ml.
Hugo boss energise is with doubt my favourite aftershave of all time.
The fragrance is very clean and fresh and lasts all day.
The ladies absoloutley love this aftershave aswell with it being voted womens favourite fragrance in the fhm grooming awards for past three years running.
Compared to other men's fragrances it is also quite reasonably priced, the cheapest place is the website cheap smells where it is priced at just £23.34 for 125ml......bargain.
The fragrance is suitable for everyday use but is also classy enough for a evening fragrance. The rest of the range is great aswell, i always buy the body spray and shower gel when i purchase the aftershave and quite often can get good deals when bought in gift sets.
The bottle looks very nice with a large spray button, the bottle itself is clear and the shape of the bottle looks very good, the best thing is how long this fragrance lasts, i spray some on in the morning and still smell as sweet when i get in from work, which makes the bottle last a long time.
All in all a fantstic fragrance which is loved by men and women alike and is very reasonably priced.
My girlfriend got me this back in February for my birthday, and I loved it! The packaging it comes in is a small, red box, but it's very smart. The bottle however, I loved, and even though it's now empty, it's still sitting on the side because I don't know what to do with it! The picture on here (which I think is the 75ml bottle) doesn't look as good as my 40ml bottle, it's a clear glass, round bottle, but the back has a straight edge that makes it more comfortable in the hand. It's spray lid (which makes it a lot easier to put on unlike them open top bottles) is plastic, other than about 7mm round the outside of the top of the lid, the rest is a big button, that I personally loved. I'm forever accidentally spraying deodorants and aftershaves in the wrong direction because of them little twisty spray tops that you can pull off. The only thing I think that could have been improved to the lid is instead of being plastic, could have made it out of metal, such as steel or chrome, but I guess this would have increased the price of the product quite a bit, which isn't necessary. The fragrance itself is lovely, it has a kind of sweet smell to it, I loved it and so did my girlfriend! It's quite a strong smell too, but not too strong, people can easily smell it if you were to walk past them, but you can't smell it from miles away, which is a good thing! It's very gentle to the skin, and you can put a few sprays on in the morning and chances are you'll still be able to smell it at the end of a busy day.. It comes at a good price too, i'm going to buy some more as soon as I get some spare cash! This is my favourite aftershave!
