Hugo Boss Soul: A Men’s Fragrance Review – Here’s What It Smells Like

Men's Grooming
Thursday, 2nd October, 2014


Hugo Boss Soul is actually quite an old fragrance, and was released back in 2005, however it’s an Eau De Toilette which I have just recently purchased. I was in Reykjavik airport trying to get rid of my Krouna, and this was a pleasant scent which was pretty affordable.

The bottle is a cool twisted style of glass, a sort of triangular shape with the back being curved. The glass is clear with a purple gradient style of colour, with BOSS printed near the bottom, and SOUL printed on the opposite front side near the top.

It’s an  aromatic style of scent, which I don’t have many of in my collection. The warm and smoky aroma is very inviting, and it has a sweet smell to it which will be the combination of the cinnamon and vanilla.

It’s quite a masculine scent despite there not being much in the way of a woody or musky hints of smells. It would be best worn on an autumn evening.

Scent type – Aromatic, Warm, Sweet
Age Recommendation – 21+

Top Notes -Mandarin, Bergamot, Black Pepper, Anise, Cardamom
