Hugo Deep Red Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Long lasting
Disadvantages: Price, quite overpowering
I would have to confess to being a great lover of different perfumes and love to try new scents and fragrances.
Each year I can pretty much guarantee I will get a bottle of nice perfume for either Christmas or my birthday, and last year I received Hugo Boss Deep Red perfume.
The bottle is an elegant shape, in a maroon red colour with a silver lid. It is believed that the bottle shape comes from the shape of a slim champagne glass combined with the shape of a high-heeled shoe.
The perfume can be bought in a number of different size bottles, 30ml, 50ml and 90ml, currently priced at around £26, £36 and £46 respectively, available from most major stores.
The bottle I have is the 30ml which has lasted me a considerable length of time. I have used the perfume daily since the summer last year and I would estimate there is still about another month's wear left in the bottle, so despite the expensive price it does last a long time. I find that 2 sprays is quite sufficient to last through the day as it is a strong and long lasting fragrance, any more than 2 sprays and I have found it too overpowering for general daily wear and at times even making me cough!
The top notes of this fragrance are clementine, blood orange and blackcurrant, which combined form a fresh and vibrant feel to the fragrance. The heart notes are freesia, pittosporum and ginger flower giving the fragrance the spicy notes. Finally the base notes, which are the strongest of the fragrance, are sandalwood, cedarwood and vanilla. These base notes are what gives it that woody and earthy smell in my opinion.
For the price of the perfume I probably wouldn't go out and buy this myself simply because it is quite expensive and is probably a bit too strong a fragrance for my liking. It has however lasted me quite a while but despite this it is not my favourite Hugo Boss perfume I have tried and next time I will go for something a lot lighter and fresher smelling. This was just a bit too heavy for me.
