Introduced at the beginning of February last year, Boss Orange Men from Hugo Boss is a woody spicy fragrance that transmits a relaxed confidence associated to an authentic affection. The face selected to front the fragrance is the English actor Orlando Bloom, a perfect match for the his feminine counterpart, the American born English actress Sienna Miller, who is fronting Boss Orange for Women, introduced 2 years earlier, in 2009.
I sniffed Boss Orange Men last march and in spite of my initial reserve regarding the bottle’s shape (you will see later why) I discovered a pleasant enough fragrance, ideal for everyday wear. The heart is especially pleasant for me (I love incense) and especially for it, if I could possibly exceed the sentiment of dislike towards the bottle, I might as well bought it.
Boss Orange Men begins on a refreshing top note that combines crisp apple and coriander, planned to stimulate your senses. Later, after no more than 20 minutes, you will be transported into a mid development phase that is built around the enchanting aroma of incense blended with Szechuan pepper. This stage is charming and if I could be able to choose I would have extended it into the dry down. Sadly, after a couple of hours I realized that the base turns creamy, with aromas of Vanilla mixed in Bubinga wood, for “creating a lasting impression of positivity and liberation”, as described on the official website.
The bottle that holds Boss Orange Men is the part that I least appreciate in this fragrance. With a shape obviously designed to match its feminine version, the flask is supposedly replicating a male torso, with a transparent carved glass that reflects the light through its pale yellow hue liquid. The part that I do like about the bottle is the silver sleek casing, carved with Boss Orange Label’s logo that is framing the bottle. Overall, Boss Orange Men is a fragrance geared towards the young man with a relaxed attitude.
