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 usually find I get on well with fragrances that have a sandalwood base as this is one of my favourite scents.
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

Hugo Boss: Orange Sunset, Eau de Toilette
Well I don't know about you ladies out there but I'm the type of girl that has a posh perfume collection and an everyday perfume collection. In my every day collection I have the usual sorts from little black dress to Fergie (both from Avon and both lovely) which I wear to work or to the supermarket. However for the special night out or in I like to wear my 'posh perfume', as it makes spending all that money on a little glass bottle seem worth it.
I first brought Hugo Boss - Orange Sunset when I popped into my local boots and declared to the lovely assistant that pounced on me as soon as I floated in that I wanted something different. She wafted a few scents under my nose but nothing stood out. I don't know about you but when I walk into boots it always tends to hit me in the back of the throat and for the 20 or so minutes I am in there I lose all sense of smell and everything merges into one.
I was about to just opt for my normal fragrance when she asked me to sniff her wrist (I know, but I'm a talker and I made a friend). She was wearing Hugo Boss and it smelt lovely, a light fruity scent that didn't choke you to death or remind you of toilet cleaner. The deciding factor was that it came in a beautiful orange glass bottle that's lid fitted snugly on top and had a yet more orange glass in it, it looks beautiful on my dressing table and really stands out amongst the other perfumes.
The perfume absorbed into my skin quickly and did not irritate me, as I have sensitive skin this is a bonus in my view. The only let down for the perfume is that I feel that the smell does not last for very long. After a few hours I find myself reapplying, which in turn means the bottle has not lasted as long as I would have liked it to.
On the plus side I received plenty of lovely comments about the perfume saying how lovely it smelt on me. The partner was also impressed as I received the bigger bottle for Christmas this year.
Personally I love this perfume though I feel you pay extra for the name Hugo Boss, and the scent does not seem to last for very long on me. However for the odd night out or a special occasion it's a winner. Its soft fruity smell attracts a lot of positive comments and the bottle (though a little bulky in the larger version) looks beautiful compared to my other bottles of perfume. Worth a try if you want something different that's smell isn't to overpowering.
This is one of the fragrances I like to wear if I am going out on an evening as it is nice and fruity and light. I was bought it for Christmas last year and so far I have used only a quarter of the bottle so it is lasting well. you only need a little dab behind each ear and one dab on each of your wrists for it to be subtle and noticable, so you don't need a lot. This makes it economical to use, but it isn't overpowering and does linger on the skin.
The bottle is a nice design and it is a spray eau de toilette that can be bought online fron £21.50 up to £23 depending on where you buy it from, but googling it can find you the cheapest deal. Buying online also has postage costs so it will be a little dearer than the prices you find.
I'm very happy with my present and will be buying a bottle for myself when this one has run out, as I like the scent of this.
The bottle is made of glass and is coloured to resemble the sun setting, the orange is darker at the bottom of the bottle than the top as it gets lighter as the colour gets to the top just like a sunset.
You can see the eau de toilette through the bottle, so can tell when it's going to run out and stock up again.
The fragrance is light and fruity and has light tones of orange blossom and white flower which give it the first initial scent when you first spray it on, this then mellows into a light, sweet apples fragrance which gives it the fruity lasting scent as it mingles with teh orange blossom and white flowers, then the rich tones of vanilla and sandlewood as the base tones give it the warm rich lasting scent that stays on the skin for you to be able to smell it for quite a few hours after using the eau de toilette.
I like the mixture of these tones as vanilla is one of my favourite scents and one which I usually go for when purchasing a perfume or eau de toilette for myself.
I like the design of the bottle as it is colourful and I collect perfume bottles so it will go in my collection when it's empty. the fragrance is ideal for evening wear or during the day if you like a subtle fruity scent.
I wear this if I am going out at night socialising as it's a nice scent that lingers on your skin and I am happy to recommend it to you.
The packaging on this is lovely coloured glass starting at deep orange at the bottom of the bottle gradually going to a light orange at the top. The sides are silver and makes it look expensive and a good one to have out on your dressing table.
Anyone who has the original Hugo Boss Orange fragrance might consider buying this fragrance. It is advertised as the stronger 'night time' fragrance but does not really smell anything like the original. It is quite musky although it does still have some of the citrusy smell of the original. That said it does have a nice smell which lasts for quite a while.
Recommended for ladies in their 20's and 30's wanting something a bit stronger for nights out. A small bottle of this is recommended as you are not likely to use much of it unless you go out a lot and the fragrance does not smell as nice once it has been open for more than about 6 months. Definitely one for the trendy people and will make you smell and feel like Sienna Miller!
The first thing I noticed about this fragrance is the bottle. It's an interesting ridged glass bottle, which turns slowly more orange towards the bottom. The sides of the bottle are mirrored glass which give it an extra something and make it stand out on your bathroom shelves.
The smell is very summery and one I would say is either a day fragrance or one for the summer evenings. It reminds me of warm summer nights on the beach with friends, which is why it has found a home among my favourite perfumes.
Hugo Boss say this perfume has orange blossom, sandalwood, tuberose and vanilla, which I have to say have all blended brilliantly to create a fruity and fresh fragrance that will suit women of all ages.
The only slight let down for me with this fragrance was it's staying power, which I found to be a little bit lacking. I did find that by around lunchtime the scent had begun to wear off. I personally do carry a small atomiser of this around with me so it's not too much of an issue for me, but for others this could be a problem.
I was lucky enough to be given this for christmas as part of a gift set but you can buy it for £26 for 30ml, £36 for 50ml and £46 for 75ml.
I like Hugo Boss Perfumes and I can count a few of them as favourites of mine. This isn't 1 of my favourites, but it is still a nice Perfume. I bought this without even smelling it as I went on the brand name.
I got this in the 30ml size since I wasn't sure if I would like it. This cost me £18. I've also seen this in a 50ml bottle which I found online for £22. Obviously the 50ml works out cheaper but no point buying the bigger one if I didn't know if I would like it or not. This Perfume has been out for quite a while now.
The bottle looks ok. Not the most exciting bottle but a little bit different than other bottles out there. The bottle is a rectangular shape and quite tall and thin. It has ridges on it. Weather it is because of the Sunset name but this goes from a deep orange colour at the bottle of the bottle to a lighter colour nearer the top. I suppose the Orange colour is because of the Orange name for this.
So how does this smell? The description online sounds nice enough. Doesn't tell you much about it, but it sounds nice. The blurb says "A new fragrance, a moment caught in happy anticipation.As the sun sets after a perfect day I'm free to savour the feeling of personal moments of happiness and look forward to the evening that awaits.Boss Orange Sunset is a warm and sensusal fragrance with creamy notes that helps heighten the anticipation of special moments.With Granadilla, Orange Flower, Tuberose with Sandalwood."
I wouldn't say this is strictly a night time or daytime scent. It seems that bit heavier for a daytime scent, but not that heavy that you would think it is a night scent. I would say the scents that you smell in here mostly is Sandalwood and Orange Flower. It is light and fruity with a sparkling scent mixed through and the odd heavier dash in here which smell Oriental and slightly Musky. It is nice, but there is a lot nicer scents out there for me.
This lasts a good lenght of time. The initial heavier scent wears off a bit when it warms to your skin and the scent that is left behind is a nice sparkling scent.
Nice enough and i'm glad I tried it. I used the bottle up and would have used the 50ml up, but I moved onto a better scent for me.
I first received Hugo Boss orange as a gift from my husband, and must say was pleasantly surprised! As I had seen the perfume whilst out looking at other perfumes and must admit had never even picked it up because I didn't like the look of the bottle. I know you should never judge a book by it's cover (or in this case a perfume by it's bottle) but I really do think it is quite ugly! It is a clear glass bottle (which makes it easy to see how much is left) which looks like lots of small glass cubes sort of moulded together, it looks almost 1970's in design. The perfume itself is an light orange colour as expected.
Right now on to the important bit, the smell. I found that when first sprayed on I did find there was a very strong and almost overpowering citrus smell but then when left to settle I found it developed into a very nice floral smell with a hint of vanilla.
I must admit I am finding it very hard to pick out and identify individual smells and notes, but I suppose that means they have all blended together nicely. I find when I wear this fragrance I do get compliments.
As this fragrance is on the strong side I do only wear it as an evening fragrance as it is far to overpowering for my taste as day wear.
As a designer fragrance it obviously isn't cheap, however as I have said a little goes a long way and I find it has great staying power and I rarely have to reapply during the evening.
It is widely available on the high street and internet and prices range from £26 - £46 and bottle sizes range from 30 - 75ml.
A few weeks ago, on one of my frequent visits to my nearest Debenhams store, I was given a tester card of Hugo Boss orange to sample. I thought it really nice at the time, but always like to give the fragrance a while before finally making up my mind. I have thought I liked fragrances in the past and as I've been wearing it I have found the aroma to change and, in some cases the perfume can smell altogether different after an hour or so of wear. In fact in a few cases of scents that I initially liked I found after a while the smell was quite altered and even annoying.
I had a look to see how much Debenhams were selling this for and saw that the small 30 ml bottle was priced at twenty-six pounds, making it within my price range for an occasional treat..
I kept having a sniff of the card and continued to enjoy the scent. After a while I decided that on my next shopping trip I would treat myself to a 30 ml bottle of this. I decided to buy from Boots rather than Debenhams because, although priced the same in both stores, I would get advantage card points at Boots which come in handy especially with Christmas approaching. Boots were also selling the 50 ml and 75 ml container for the same price as Debenhams.
I made this purchase chiefly for the smell as I hadn't seen the container when first sampling. However I really like the bottle design mainly because it makes a change to most of my perfume bottles and I think catches the eye. I think the packaging is modern and fun but still elegant. The orange and gold design of the bottle and its lid make it warming and welcoming. I consider it to be a great looking gift.
HUGO BOSS ON BOSS ORANGE
(taken from http://store-uk.hugoboss.com)
BOSS Orange Sunset features an evocative combination of creamy, sensual notes. A heady bouquet of orange blossom and tuberose in the heart notes is set against a creamy sandalwood and vanilla base, imbuing BOSS Orange Sunset with the same soulful sensuality that characterizes all BOSS Orange Women fragrances. The addition of inviting, tropical granadilla blends with the prominent floral heart notes to give the fragrance a fresh flair. A fragrance for the passionate and expressive woman
I thought it was pretty good in the respect of being a long lasting fragrance. It changed in aroma, as perfumes do, whilst wearing, becoming more subtle, but it still remained a pleasant but vibrant smell. Well that's how I can best describe it.
I think this is one of my most versatile fragrances as I find it suitable for most occasions and will wear either in the evening or daytime. As it is called Orange Sunset then it may be meant for evening wear but I don't think it's out of place for any time use. It has got a fresh smell which is floral, but tangy and bright. I suppose really I had to like this one as I adore the smell of orange blossom, which is an ingredient of this fragrance. I wouldn't call it a highly floral smell and it certainly hasn't got that rose aroma, which in some perfumes can be a bit old fashioned. I really would say this, in essence, is very modern fragrance but suitable for all ages.
I also think this fragrance is suitable to wear all year round.
