What we don’t like

  • Sillage and intensity is not very strong
  • Lasting power is not impressive

A perfume worth trying!

Ahoy, scent seekers! We’ve all experienced the power of fragrances transporting us to another time and place. They evoke memories, and even influence our moods. It’s no wonder that the world of perfume is constantly evolving, with new scents being introduced all the time.

One fragrance that has recently caught our attention is Boss, The Scent by Hugo Boss. Inspired by the art of seduction, this scent is designed to awaken the senses and create a feeling of irresistible attraction.

The face of the campaign for Boss The Scent is none other than the charming and handsome Theo James. Known for his roles in popular films like the Divergent series, James is the perfect embodiment of the seductive power of this fragrance. In the campaign, he portrays a confident and charismatic man who knows what he wants and how to get it.

But enough chit-chat! Let me tell you the verdict of Boss The Scent after it was tested by GlowPro’s best noses!

Unforgettable Aromatic Spices

As someone who loves spicy and exotic fragrances, I was immediately drawn to Boss The Scent. The blend of ginger, mandarin orange, and bergamot in the top notes gave it a fresh and zesty kick, while the maninka and lavender heart notes added a unique twist that I had never experienced before.

What really stood out to me, however, was the leather and woody base notes. They gave the fragrance a masculine and confident edge that made it perfect for any occasion, from a business meeting to a night out in  town. Every time I wear Boss The Scent, I feel powerful, confident, and ready to take on the world.

The Elegant Packaging

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for sleek and stylish packaging, and Boss The Scent did not disappoint. The elegant glass bottle, metal cap, and textured leather label all added up to create a truly standout piece in any fragrance collection. The attention to detail that went into the packaging is impressive, from the embossed logo on the front to the textured leather label on the back. It’s a fragrance that not only smells great but looks great on display as well.

A Personal Fragrance Experience

Contrary to expectations of a strong scent, Boss The Scent is actually an intimate skin scent. As someone who loves fragrances that linger closely on the skin, I was pleasantly surprised by the subtle sillage and moderate intensity of Boss The Scent.

It’s not a fragrance that announces itself loudly, but rather a sophisticated and refined aroma that stays close to the wearer. This unique quality sets it apart from other men’s perfumes and makes it an ideal choice for those who prefer a more intimate fragrance experience. The balance between its boldness and refinement makes it perfect for those who want to make a subtle statement without overwhelming those around them.

Moderate Lasting

As someone who prioritizes longevity in fragrances, I was intrigued by Boss The Scent’s staying power. While it’s not the longest-lasting fragrance out there, it still manages to hold its own with a lasting time of 4 to 5 hours at the most.

I found that the fragrance lasted well throughout the day, but after a full day of wear, it began to fade away. While it may not be the best choice for those who want a fragrance that lasts for days, it’s still a great option for everyday wear. It’s perfect for a day at the office or an evening out with friends, providing a lasting scent that doesn’t require frequent touch-ups.

A Gentle Touch

As someone with sensitive skin, I’m always wary of trying out new fragrances. I’ve had plenty of experiences in the past where a fragrance has caused redness, irritation, or even a rash on my skin. However, I had no issues whatsoever with Boss The Scent. It was gentle and non-irritating on my skin, making it a great choice for anyone with easily irritated skin. It’s a fragrance that not only smells great but is also kind to your skin.

Versatility at its Best

As someone who loves to switch things up, I was thrilled to find that Boss The Scent is a versatile fragrance that can work in a variety of different atmospheres. Whether I’m heading to a business meeting, a night out with friends, or a romantic date, this fragrance is sure to fit the bill. It’s bold and confident enough for more formal occasions, yet refined and sophisticated enough for a night out intown. It’s a fragrance that truly works in any situation.

The Perfect Seasonal Choice

Being a fan of spicy and woody fragrances, I tend to gravitate towards scents that are perfect for the cooler months. Boss The Scent is no exception – it’s ideal for fall and winter, but can also work well in the transition from summer to autumn.

The warmth and depth of the fragrance make it a perfect choice for those chilly evenings when you want to feel cozy and comfortable, but still want to make a statement with your fragrance. It’s also worth noting that while it may be a bit too heavy for the warmer months, you can still wear it in moderation during the spring and summer for a fresh and invigorating twist on the traditional spicy fragrance.

Size Matters

Boss The Scent is available in two different sizes, 50 ml and 100 ml, making it easy to find the perfect size for your needs. The 50 ml bottle is great for those who want to try the fragrance out before committing to a larger size, or for those who want to keep a smaller size for travel or on-the-go use.

The 100 ml bottle is perfect for those who have fallen in love with the fragrance and want to make it a staple in their collection. Whichever size you choose, you can be confident that you’re getting a high-quality men’s perfume that is sure to impress.

Team Approved
