Review of Hugo Boss Orange Eau de Toilette Spray.
I received a Hugo Boss Orange gift set for Christmas 2011 and have been enjoying sampling the contents. The set comprised of a 50ml bottle of Eau de Toilette (EDT) fragrance, a 50ml tube of shower gel and a tube of 50ml body lotion. This review concentrates on the EDT.
Hugo Boss Orange EDT is presented in a beautiful bottle, made of chunky glass with a deeply ridged design. The lid is a silvery grey colour and the actual perfume is a peachy orange colour. The spray mechanism is a little on the generous side and I have had to adjust the pressure I use when applying this EDT!
The whole gift set was very attractively presented, so nice that it felt a bit of a pity to spoil it by opening it!
This fragrance is a decidedly 'young' scent in my opinion, it is light, fresh and fruity, with slightly deeper woody undertones.
The initial top note of Hugo Boss Orange is distinctly fruity one dominated by sweet apple. The heart notes are white flowers and orange blossom, whilst the more intense base notes are of sandalwood, olive wood and vanilla.
I find it lasts for around 4-5 hours on my skin which is just about acceptable for an EDT, although of course this will vary from user to user as perfumes react differently the individual users skin type.
As mentioned, this product was received as a gift, so I am unsure of the price paid or where it was purchased. A quick web search conducted today brought up a price of £30.95 for this gift set on www.fragrancedirect.co.uk
The website also offers the EDT at £21.95 for a 30ml bottle and £39.95 for the 75ml size.
Hugo Boss fragrances are widely available both online and in High Street stores.
My Thoughts and Conclusion
In my opinion this fragrance is a pleasant one, it can almost be described as refreshing. It is an uncomplicated scent and one that I quite like, in my opinion, it is an everyday fragrance with a really uplifting feel to it. I must admit that I was a little disappointed in the fragrance at first, as I had assumed given the name, it would be more orangey. I feel it would be a good choice as a summer scent as the fruity, floral notes are reminiscent of a summers day.
I think the fragrance is a little expensive for what it is, it could have lasted a little longer. although that said, it may well have more staying power on someone else.
I particularly like the fact that my gift set had shower gel and body lotion too, as it is nice to be able to layer your scent.
Hugo Boss Orange is a lovely everyday fragrance and one I would recommend to others.
I am awarding this EDT a 4* rating
Thank you for reading
