The house of Hugo Boss will introduce their new fragrance named Hugo Element in February 2009. The face of this fragrance is Jonathan Rhys Meyers, popular Irish film and TV actor, known for his role of King Henry the 7th in TV drama The Tudors.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was born on July 27th 1977 (Dublin, Ireland) and is son to Geraldine Meyers and musician John O'Keeffe. Besides his acting career, he also worked as a model for Versace, Hugo Boss (face of perfume Hugo by Hugo Boss since 2006), Club Monaco...

The new fragrance, Hugo Element, aims at urban man who lives in harmony with his time. As photographer of the campaign, Stephen Ruiz, says Jonathan Meyers is an excellent choice to present the new fragrance and fits perfectly in its concept. (elle.fr)

Boss Element Fragrance Reviews

From a girl's perspective, I find this to be very pleasing and fresh, albeit a tad too feminine. The sweet citrus notes are dominating so I think this is more suitable for young men to wear in the summer.

I love the ginger in this. And I do get hints of peppermint as well. It smells very good but unfortunately doesn't last very long and has poor silage.

Very fresh scent that is ideal for summer and spring.

Longevity: 6.5/10
Projection: 4.5/10
Smell: 8/10

the first Element by HB is like earthy, the Aqua Elements is obviously water. This one is windy in my opinion. I feel like Im carried around on a wind when im wearing this.

Very fresh, clean, and crisp. With a balance of warm and cool, this is my new go-to fragrance when I need something unoffensive and fear wearing something too "stinky." More of a warm weather fragrance but I think it could really work at any time.

Sorry but it is very common and weak. It´s like a watery Azzaro Chrome. Metallic and synthetic vibes. Not worth it.

My friend owns this. Smells strongly of ginger and then a blend of citruses with a touch of freshness from the aquatic notes. Longevity is decent, it'll last a whole night. Not a bad scent, but I don't think I'd be purchasing this anytime soon. I may change my mind in the future though, but until then I'm looking for something else.

This is a good one, very fresh and last a long time. It really last a long in my skin and projects very well. I only use it for casual wear.

From the notes you will think is an average aquatic only, but it has a sweetness to it that make it stand, But sometimes when its to hot outside, it gets cloying and sticky because of that sweetness.

Lovely fresh start. Later reminds me the Hugo Boss Hugo (however this lasts much more longer). Good for everyday use. Comfortable. No alcoholic or soap smell.
I like it very much.

Weak longevity. 3-4hours max - on skin or shirt either.

This is one of my Summer Favs, Fresh and clean, very subtle, I had a lot of compliments wearing it, this is the kind that only you and the people close to you can enjoy it, a must have for office people.
This is an aquatic fragance.

I like this fragrance and I make no apologies for that. In fact I really like this stuff. It's aroma therapy in a bottle. It has a vibrancy to it that's energizing.

On my skin it starts off with a sharp citrus and ginger opening then it dries down into a green and bitter aroma (yeah, I said bitter) which is why I find it aromatic as opposed to aquatic. This scent reminds me of thick, green, raw vegetation )or 'bush' as we say in my neck of the woods)after the rain has fallen (If that makes any sense at all).

contrary to what seems to be popular opinion here, I find the juice quite appealing. It's not complex neither does it evolve much from opening to end, I just like the darn thing and that's that.

Elements is not for everyone. If you're young or young at heart, love the outdoors, full of energy and possess an unparalleled passion for life then go for it. It's a welcomed break from the usual. And the stuff lasts a long time on my skin, if my body temp raises the smell gets even stronger.

Good stuff. Two thumbs up

I don't like citrus and Ginger together, and in that way I just don't find this scent very nice.
The musk and woods need to be more demanding for me to like this one.

The scent that I smell first comes as a tablet-orange feeling, and as it goes on I get something that remember me in distance Bvlgari pour Homme drydown. Not properly fresh or aquatic. Althrough many call it unoriginal, its a bit different from what I was expecting so I can't say I´m very disapointed, or that I dislike it. Just not excited about. Very nice looking bottle anyway.

“Boss Element” is a cologne for men that released by “Hugo Boss” and “Hugo Boss” is a company that releases lots of flacons each year, fully filled of “Hugo” or “Boss” or “Hugo + Boss”. You can recognize and distinguish difference between them only by reading their names on boxes or either flacons.
People say that they smell good, so I think “Boss Element” smells good either!
Fortunately, you can open this one, using a wrench!

مثل اکثر عطرهای کمپانی هوگو-باس این یکی هم یک عطر کاملاً تجاری هست که هیچ چیز جالب و هنری و منحصربفردی توی اون پیدا نمیکنید
این هم دقیقاً شبیه همهء عطرهای دیگهء هوگو-باس هست با این تفاوت کوچیک که درب این یکی رو میشه با آچار هم باز کرد

one of very few fresh perfumes that can blend nicely with my body odor. Clean, fresh yet not overpowering, and one thing that I like most: the longevity is superb!

This smells like a mixture of green-sweet smell too cloying, smell is also very linear, I really think is addressed if any, the teen audience. I see more potential than a fragrance for a nightclub. This can really cloying.

I like it, but I certainly didn't fall in love with it! It's too ordinary for my personal taste. I also don't get how there can be so many rather oriental-spicy notes in this fragrance; my nose doesn't smell them (I really adore coriander as a perfume note but it gets lost in this one). I think Boss "Element" it's rather a fresh citrus smell which can and should be worn to business events mainly. You can imagine Jonathan Rhys-Meyers wearing this one in the movie "Match Point" - it's like that Woody Allen film: interesting, but still a little bit disappointing. My rating: 8 out of 10 points.

I didn't realize until after my purchase how young of a fragrance this was. It's not bad at all, but for someone who is 25+ trying to get away with this... it's like trying to buy the largest size T-Shirt in Boys thinking you might force it to fit, but it just doesn't work out the way you want it to... but likable. Without the ginger, this would be a Disney fragrance.

Hugo Boss Element is a standard everyday scent. I bought this fragrance about a week ago and I had mixed feelings at first, but after allowing it to settle, it smells great! I really dont look for compliments from wearing fragrances. I just want to smell clean once I get out of the shower. This scent is not screaming for attention, but in a subltle way it lets people know you are in the room.

Hugo element should fall into a hot and spicy category, IMHO. Pepper strikes my nose at the instant it is sprayed. Well done Hugo boss if you want to mark this pepper opening as phenomenal.

I have to say, I don't think so buddy :P

I'm sorry to disagree with many lovers of this fragrance but I just cannot tolerate its pepper note. This is just too spicy for me even thoguh it is my second try. My reaction remains pretty much the same.

All in all. 1/10 thanks to its cool bottle :) Thank you for reading :)

I like it so much, it's very fresh,young, comfortable.For me it's very long lasting! If you like somethings that makes people around you feel relaxy, you should try it! It's a litle spicy at the beginnig. If you compare it with BLV Aqua, i can say : Hugo Element is more better! because Hugo Element's smell is natural and unique but BVL Aqua's so commonly used!

"Well dang, I already wore all my other colognes this month, what should I wear... Hmm.. Oh! Hugo Element, ok, I forgot how much you smell good!" And it truly does smell good. Generic yeahhhh I know but it's a good generic.

Casual, youthful, fresh, spicy (to me) and urban. I also think it's aquatic and since it has no olfactive group I hereby declare it Spicy-Aquatic! Weird combination, I know. Fragrantica does not have the notes listed so I'll do us the honors...

This is directly from nstperfume.com posted by Kevin: "Hugo Element contains Limonene, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Citral, coumarin, and wisps of ginger, coriander and cedar wood, but Calone overpowers the other notes."
Which I totally agree with him on.(I like how some of the ingredients have a form of "lol" at the end, hehehe!)

He also states: "When the words “aquatic,” “marine” or “oceanic” are included in a list of perfume notes, or in a perfume description, the chances are good Calone is in the formula."

That being said, I smell two main ingredients amongst all those other funny looking words that look like words on the back of a shampoo bottle. The Calone and I swear there is pepper in this. I do smell some ginger in it but it isn't very stong. I guess that's where H.E. gets some of its sharpness from.

Longevity ain't to bad. I wish it would last longer. But hey, you get what you pay for right? It's not strong, stays close to my skin and its welcoming. A good chick magnet I guess.

In conclusion, H.E. can be worn whenever, however. Hugo definitely targeted this for the young crowd.

P.S. I feel like I just did a research paper. ;)

I had a vial of this in my drawer and decided to try it today. Gut reaction: I like it. Definitely fruity/floral as mentioned but with a subtle spice note to bring it into a masculine realm. I do not get the grapefruit note at all. Variation in skin chemistry explains this better than anything else. Nice for summer/day wear.
