Reviews of Boss Woman by Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss for women - Hugo Boss
Good perfume for women who want to smell smell fresh and clean while running outdoors- it even smells somewhat like new sneakers to... Best advice though, is to just run past this thing.

I bought this because I was looking for a very clean, fresh eau type fragrance. It is certainly not unique in that regard, but it worked better for me than others in the "eau" genre. I have other perfumes that are much better than this one (in that genre as well), but I find it to be quite nice. It's certainly inoffensive, and works great for summer. Not every scent has to be the most memorable.

Sour, synthetic, bland, generic white-out liquid. Floral? There is no plant in the universe this boring? Hedione, is that you?

I didn't expect much from this fragrance prior to testing it. I wanted to explore more from the Hugo Boss range, and I would have felt incomplete if I hadn't tried all that was there to offer.

Boss Woman, while surprising at first, especially with it's delightfully sweet mango opening, turns out to be just as plain and boring as the bottle it comes in.

This fragrance won't offend; it's office friendly, warm weather friendly and an obvious crowd pleaser. I've smelt so many similar fragrances in the last few years, that I seem to have this constant feeling of deja-vu.

Boss Woman has become one of Hugo Boss' harder-to-find scents, and in some ways I wish that it was more readily available, so that I could see the disappearance of the disastrous Hugo XX instead.

While nicely balanced between fruitiness and flowery accords, Boss Woman makes me think of shampoo and Summer. Clean and simple, is the nicest thing I can say.

One thing that I do applaud is the fact that Boss Woman is barely synthetic. Although I love Deep Red, I do find its plasticine accord too much on certain days. Boss Woman is the first 'natural' scent by Hugo Boss that I've experienced, and for that I'm happy.

The lasting power is pretty good, as is the sillage. Out of the many Summer scents I detest these days, Boss Woman is something I'd prefer to smell on many young girls this coming season, despite the fact that this isn't really my cup of tea.

After an initial blast of something too sharp, this scent settles into a nice comfortable spot, not too floral, not to fruity, not too woodsy, not too sweet, nor too strong. If you're looking for something that doesn't stand out, give this a try. If you like perfumes with a little more personality then move on.

A very ordinary scent - sharp floral woods - I do wonder why I am writing this review other than to say - save your money and buy something better than this. on the whole Hugo Boss perfumes are not that good. There are thousands of scents that smell similar to this ,IMHO.Bland.

Well, I liked the start; a bitter fruitiness with a fresh cut flower pop. After that it becomes a rather dull accord of freesia and sandalwood. I prefer the crisp kind of white floral instead of a lazy one.

Very nice, refreshing, young and feminine smell. I can not image anybody doesn't like it. Ok sillage, ok longevity and never to strong. Buy it!

I tried Hugo Boss Woman for a day and I quite liked it. Its neither heavy nor too floral, which is exactly what I'm looking for. But there's something about the smell after, say 20 minutes, that I associate with office women. But not the types that wear skirts, but women who can pull off wearing a suit without giving up any femininity at all . At first I thought that was just the name -you know, boss-, but then I let people smell it without adding the name and they actually said the same thing. That could be the effect on my skin only though. Its the reason I don't wear it. My Boyfriend's first comment to the smell was: "Good! Very nice... but too old for you." Confirming what I actually already knew. Hugo Boss Woman would probably smell very good on women who are 28-35, smart, subtle-sexy and feminine. And since I'm smart, but only 20 I can't really pull it off.

A lovely smell if used with moderation. It's sweet, but not too sweet, not too fresh either, just right. It makes me feel adored and happy and it has even been my favourite perfume some time ago and it brought me lots of compliments. I think it fits mature women as well as younger ones. One sniff of this always brings a smile on my face :)

I like it. it has a citrusy and woody scent with musk. The notes are: - top notesMandarin, Mango, Kumquat - Heart noteFreesia, Orris, Passiflore - base noteSandal, Cedarwood It is different than the other is fresh not deep and not sweet.It is a Floral - Fruity type of perfume. The scent lasts long as you can smell the base notes after 6 hours. I liked the mandarin note at the top.

Smells like a cheap rip off version of Tommy Girl.

This one started out nicely - a fresh, contemporary airy floral that didn't smell department store-ish on me. Then in the midnote, it began to lose its crispness and definition, and I began to slowly get enveloped in the ozonic department store hell note. Too bad - it started with promise, but this is unwearable for me.

The fruity opening is very pleasant and not excessively sweet. There is a slight synthetic tinge to it, but I don't see anything in the pyramid that would account for that unless it's the pineapple note. I don't often find pineapple notes that are done successfully. I don't really get much floral from the middle–the middle seems to retain the fruitiness of the opening and bring in the cedar and sandalwood from the base. The dry down is primarily mango-y with a background of wood. It is pleasant enough and has good longevity. Boss Woman is ostensibly the best Hugo Boss fragrance that I've tried, which isn't saying a lot, but this one is ok.

one of rare sweets that are not smell boring to me. really unique: you won't find anything similar.

Notes:Top: mandarin, kiwi, mango, pineapple, kumquat, orange. Heart: passionflower, freesia, violet root, cananga flower. Base: Texas white cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, muskOne of the better Boss offerings, this Eau D'Parfum is a good fruity and slightly musky melange that is appropriate for summer and spring. I smell mangoes and a some peaches in the top notes - although it sounds like a dose of extreme sweetness, the notes never get cloying. The midnotes introduce a floral component, but I wouldnt say that this is a very floral composition - infact, this fragrance could very well be unisex. Solid basenotes of sandalwood and vanilla round off this good presentation by Boss. Longevity is good too, although it stays pretty close to the skin. Thumbs up for a Boss Scent (and I thought I would never be saying that)

The nicest thing I can say about this scent is that it's unobtrusive. It smells like nothing and is hardly detectable. Cool and clean and perfumey, perhaps slightly floral, that's it.

my mum bought this on sale. it smells quite formal-i'd imagine a lady in her 40s wearing this to work with plain jewellery, a black skirt-suit and a white blouse. its stylish but quite uniform; reminds me ever so slightly of elizabeth arden's green tea.

To me this smells quite plain & very masculine/unisex. It may just be my chemistry. To me this would be nice to wear to bed when away from DH. The bottle is quite boring too. Definitely no purchase. I am glad I sampled first.
