I was given a 75ml bottle of Hugo Boss Energise Aftershave for my 18th birthday (I am now 20 lol). I was very happy when I opened this present as I had previously smelt this aftershave before and liked it. The aftershave comes in a red box with a picture of the aftershave on it and the description of the aftershave. The box it came in wasn't very sturdy as the bottle moved around in the packaging and it didn't feel very secure. The packaging in itself was well presented.
The bottle is a cylindrical shape with a push down spray which is easy to use. I always find that you need at least two sprays of this aftershave as it is not strong enough with one spray.
I like to wear this spray when I am going on a night out but wouldn't really wear it in the day. It goes best when wearing a smart shirt. It has a sweet yet strong smell that is very distinguishable and unique to Hugo Boss. I still have some of this aftershave left now and although I don't wear it that regularly I feel that it is great value.
Overall a great aftershave and certainly one of girlfriends preferred smells.
The citrussy, dynamic top notes are of mandarin and kumquat while the middle notes blend warm cardamom and coriander / The base notes are made up of jacaranda wood, leather and suede /
