This is going to be a short, not-so-sweet, and literally an open-and-shut review. Whenever I pick a perfume, it’s basically keeping in mind the notes that constitute the fragrance – floral and fruity is what I prefer, citrus-notes based scents come in a close second in my favorites list. A good perfume can make you feel confident, while on the contrary, a perfume which you are not sure about can make you a bit conscious. Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme EDP does not fall into either of the above-mentioned categories, and I will reveal in this review why I refuse to put it down into a particular section.
Boss Nuit Pour Femme was inspired by the Little Black Dress and what it stands for. Just like the LBD complements every woman, Nuit pour femme is a wonderful compliment to women. Boss Nuit Pour Femme is a perfectly balanced scent that complements your individuality, embracing you with a self-assured excitement as you prepare to enjoy your night to the fullest. The scent is designed to put the essential finishing touch to your perfectly put together evening look, wrapping you in an aura of feminine elegance before you embark on your big night out. Featuring a modern composition of feminine florals blended with sparkling top notes, it is the ideal companion to the little black dress.
Fragrance Type: Fruity floral.
Top Notes: White peach, Wet aldehydes
Heart Notes: White flowers, violet, Jasmine
Base Notes: Crystal moss, While warm woods, Creamy sandalwood.
INR 2500 for 75 ml (got it at a discount, prices varies on different sites).
My Experience with Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme Eau de Parfum for Women:
The packaging is classy and one of the reasons apart from the fruity-floral notes that tempted me to pick it up online. Actually, I wanted an evening-time perfume with a fresh fragrance and Hugo Boss Nuit fit the bill perfectly considering the description. I bought it online because it ticked all the boxes to become a perfect night-time perfume.
Coming to the fragrance, on the first spray, actually with a lot of spritzes, you get a whiff of a combination of white peach, aldehydes, and some indistinguishable floral notes. After an hour or so, I was expecting the middle notes aka heart notes to show up, you know, white flowers and jasmine, oh so sensual right!, but this perfume skips that step, and I only get traces of woodsy notes right from there. This perfume does not go through the evolution from top notes to base notes, it dies completely after an hour or so, leaving behind a light trail of woody notes. This perfume does not wither away, it dies quickly, has a surprisingly short life, and does not do much for you for the short duration that it stays. I couldn’t believe a night perfume which is supposed to be strong, sensual, intense, is so light and hollow, it does not last beyond 1-1/2 to 2 hours. I have not described the fragrance at length because it does not last and all I manage to get are some aldehydes.
Nowadays, I have started applying 10 spritzes at one go, but even then, this perfume which lacks the intensity and depth with extremely low staying power and sillage disappoints.
I went online to check whether I landed a wrong bottle, but then, almost everyone had issues with low staying power and sillage.
If I compare it with a very popular night-time fragrance, YSL Opium, which is a heady mix of deep, intense and sensual notes, this one pales in comparison. One good thing about this fragrance, it does not smell cheap, hence you can wear it without being uncomfortable, but reapply it every other hour. It’s certainly not for a wild night of partying, you party animals!
Hugo Boss Nuit is a very mundane perfume, there’s nothing different or extraordinary about it, and most importantly, it cannot become anyone’s signature perfume, it just lacks the energy and vigor to last. It’s a non-fussy fragrance without any prominent notes, no feel of aura or power if you are thinking about that.
Pros of Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme Eau de Parfum for Women:
- Not a loud perfume, won’t give you headaches.
Cons of Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme Eau de Parfum for Women:
- Low staying power.
- Not an extraordinary perfume, lacks intensity and power to be a luxury perfume.
- The fragrance dies very quickly, just one hour into the wear.
- Not at all a night perfume.
- Middle notes do not show up at all.
- Extremely low staying power.
- Low sillage.
Hugo Boss Nuit is the kind of perfume you would be glad once the bottle finishes up because now you can move onto other fragrances. There ends my story with Hugo Boss perfumes!
