The creator's first perfume, Hugo Woman, had an enormous success. Now the brand presents Boss Woman, a floral and fruity perfume to go with a new women's fashion collection (of sophisticated sportswear), specially designed for today's active woman. The opening scent of this trendy perfume is a blend of fruity notes (tangerine and mango) and kumquat. At its heart, freesia, orris, passiflore, while the base is warm from the blend sandal and cedarwood. Boss Woman was launched in 2000. The nose behind this fragrance is Sophie Labbe.

Hugo Boss = generic imo.. this is the most boring, watery frag I've ever tried. v low longevity and sillage, luckily

As far as I remember, this was my first perfume. I must have been around 15 years old.
I couldn't wear it, and I didn't know what attracted me to the scent. Nevertheless, I asked for it and wore it about 3 times, then I simply had the bottle until it turned.

Ages later, I remembered this.
I enjoy having it wafting around me so much. Boss Woman is absolutely not in the range of what I'd expect to like, but to my nose it's a really distinct scent, one I remember, and one which I surprisingly still like.

The heart notes come through right from the start, and it stays on me for about six hours.
On my scarf this lasts for 2-3 days. So the longevity really isn't bad at all! Sillage is about arm's length.

This is really fresh. I like that it's not vanilla-y, and still warm. The sandalwood doesn't give me a headache, but it keeps me on my toes. It doesn't cry 'clean' to me because of the wood notes. Neither do I notice any sour citruses, and I agree, the mango in this is not a fully ripened mango, but something younger, greener. That may also be linked to the freesia, which has a peppery fresh, sometimes green odour profile. Boss Woman is almost spicy, but mostly fresh and a little sweet.
It's a quite light musky fruity scent to me. A friend smelled it on me and noted that it was a really "feminine" scent to her. Awesome, feminine but not heavy. Perfect for spring.

I just ordered the 90ml bottle, and will wear this whenever I need a contemporary trip down memory lane. The only drawbacks for me are the bottle and the name. Let's just not speak about it. Other than that, something I really enjoy!

Edited to say that this is now my signature. I love this so much.

Very nice fruity fresh top notes! Just after first sniff, I had very high expectations, and I was so disappointed later on...
Heart notes are strange, powdery freesia with some earthy additions. Too much powder to my nose.
Almost stinky at the end! And it had started so well!

I remember this was one of my first good perfumes I had when I was 16 or 17. I loved it and it was my signature perfume for some time. I would love to smell it once again to remember the old times.

I got this sample many years ago and I kinda liked the refreshing and light scent of it. I couldn't find it anywhere since it's an old perfume. Then, I sorta forgot the scent. Just now, saw it at a very low price. I snatched it right away. Today I am wearing it and it is indeed very refreshing and perfect for the pre-Fall weather. It lasts about 3~4 bours and it's not heavy so it's good for daytime wear.

This was recommended to me by someone who knows what kind of perfumes I generally like... And from the notes listed here I went and tried it... But from start to finish, all I smell is mint? Just like toothpaste...
Edit: I tried this again in different weather, with the same result. Weird chemistry perhaps?

This strikes me as a light, spicy floral. Very feminine, very wholesome, elegant and professional-smelling without veering off into citrus or sporty-aquatic territory. Freesia is the main element here and is no doubt responsible for that squeaky-clean feel. The presence of mango is a puzzler – the Fragrantica image accompanying the note is of a juicy, ripe red mango, the sort you would expect to find in an Escada perfume (and which, in fact you do!) This is NOT the kind of mango in Boss Woman. If there is any at all, it would be that ephemeral, tart and tingly note found in small green mangoes still on the tree (see Chandler Burr, The Perfect Scent) and this could be the pepperiness I pick up.

The dry-down is soft and cozy, the cedar maybe, and is a wee bit like Laura by Laura Biagiotti. Just the tiniest bit. (Hugo Woman by the same company is apparently a more Laura-smelling perfume). I love Boss Woman (except for the silly name) and would consider a full bottle a good investment. Luckily it shows no sign of being discontinued.

I owned this perfume when i was 18 years old, fresh college girl, I never forget it though, it has a very good quality and lightness- like a fresh version of all time favorites, something like doir or chanel but fresher!

I re-purchased and maybe will always own it, perfect office use and good for mornings.

This is a must-have perfume for every woman. Perfect for hot summer days. The smell is very light, uplifling, fresh and clean but still keeps its sweetnes. "Woman" is very well balanced fragrance and as I said, every girl and woman should have it or at least try it. You will not regret and maybe you will fall in love the same way I did.

GREETINGS FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC! :)

Eau d' tooth paste in a bottle!!!

Potency: Light (5 or more sprays are necessary)
Longevity: 6hrs+

I got this recently and I'm TOTALLY in love with it. It's so balanced as a smell, bearable to wear it, soft and mild yet it shows your personality and strongness. Perfect for office wear and it could be sexy and intoxicating to wear at night too.

Ive had this fragrance since I was 14.. Now I'm 17 and I still wear it and it might as well be my signature scent. This smells mature. To me it doesnt smell like the generic fruity florals, it has PERSONALITY. It oozes confidence. It smells clean and fresh, and I love it for any occasion! It also smells a bit masculine but its alright for me since I believe that makes it more profound. The bottle is alright, sillage is pretty good and longevity is awesome. I love it!

Boss Woman is my ultimate choice for summer and spring.
It oozes with crispiness, freshness and cleanliness.
It is no good to classify it as floral fruity as there is hardly anything fruity about it. Not to my nose, that is.
I definitely see that fragrance matching a winter white ruffled shirt with a string of red coral necklace, fitted cropped trousers and red heels. This fragrance is feminine and, unlike some reviewers, I actually cannot sense any similarity to masculine fragrances.
Boss Woman is a universal fragrance; perfect when worn to office as well as a casual party with friends at the local karaoke pub.
Lasting power and silage are decent; it only needs reapplying every 5 hours or so.
The bottle is simple and reflects the nature of the fragrance.

It's very refreshing thanks to the fruity opening, then freesia and violets make it more feminine. Crisp, light and comfortable. It makes a great office perfume, lasts all day, stays close the skin.

Instantly recognizable but nowhere near as sexy as the original Boss for men.

Its very warm and sexy BUT unfortunately no notes in particular jump out. You wont smell it and think 'ohh mango' or anything. It does smell like a generic, synthetic blend.. but not in a bad 'supermarket' way.

Nice, worth owning and trying but too common to be a signature scent.

Femenina, clásica y elegante para el día y la oficina. Mezcla de notas frutales, florales y amaderadas, justo lo que a mí me gusta. Podría considerarla como mi “signature fragrance” de los 2000 y es uno de los perfumes que he repetido en más de dos oportunidades con frascos de 90ml.

Feminine, classic and elegant for day and office. Mixture of fruity, floral and woodsy, just what I like. Could consider it as my "signature fragrance" of 2000 and is one of the perfumes I have repeated more than twice with 90ml bottles.

This is the fragrance that rich women from Boston and NYC wear to restaurant lunches with their girlfriends when they vacation in Cape Cod and Bar Harbor. Boss Woman smells discreetly of money. Sophisticated but feminine. It's a fruity floral blend that is delicate, understated, and clean. It is very ladylike and proper. It does not have a distinctive note, nor is distinctive the way Angel is distinctive.

Of course that is my subjective opinion. The description that may be more meaningful to one reading this review is: Boss Woman has the fruity-floral top notes of Dolce & Gabbana's L'Eau the One but without the sweet vanilla base. There is no creamy quality to Boss Woman. The sandalwood provides gentle warmth.

This is a perfume for an adult, not a teen.

The EDP lasts all day on me, softening in the evening.

Hmmm, nail polish remover followed by eye makeup remover topped off with an extremely artificial white flower which may be the freesia. Just enough cedar to keep the moths away, and a touching demonstration of a commitment to ecology demonstrated by the jarring proof that there's no actual sandalwood to be found here. This makes me feel young by transporting me back to college Organic Chemistry but I always left those labs with a headache. It's odd that a company that makes such elegant clothes makes such grubby juice.
Sillage: 4-5 ft, enough to annoy
Durability: scrubbed after half hour
Fabulosity: better living through modern chemistry
Price to value ratio: high end price, low end product

The EdP smells like just about any other generic commercial fragrance that’s out there, with the usual mix of aldehydic-citrus top notes, nondescript floral stuff in the midsection, and some very synthetic-smelling woody notes and musks in the base. It seems strong at first, but the top notes quickly dissipate, leaving behind a surprisingly mild scent for a commercial EdP. At this point there’s a little bit of generic fruitiness along with the slightly aquatic florals and light woody-musky base. Boss Woman is not bad for what it is, but it really has nothing to distinguish it from thousands of other commercial scents except, perhaps, the fact that the sillage is not overpoweringly strong.

A very simple floral-fruity with the most perfect heart.

It starts out citrus-sweet with mandarin, orange and mango and it has a faint musky-woody dry down.

What I love love love about this scent is its floral heart: passion flower and freesia - an absolutely amazing combination. To me it feels so very feminine, elegant and clean, I simply can't get enough.

In my eyes it's an ideal daytime/office fragrance that lasts 6+ hours.

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 fruity 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.

Beginning with a great crispiness, mandarin leaf and freesias ... but then a bit sour and ugh - mosquito spray - As luck would disappear back to its crisp scent but now modest.

Ick.

The first time I sampled this, I was so sure the tester had gone off. Which evil mastermind at Hugo Boss would bottle headache and set it loose on the general public? The tester must have gone bad.
Then I got a sample vial as a swap throw-in, and it looks like the tester wasn't off after all.

Medicinal bitter citruses, spoiled rotten at the bottom of the fruit basket. Stale violets distintegrating in the torpid vase water. Some poor landlady trying to mask the decay with nasty acrid chemical room "freshener." Sour and crass. Absolutely never again.

Reminded me a little of Chanel's Allure EDT, another at the top of my ick list.

BOSS WOMAN is a fresh, clean floral-fruity fragrance similar in structure and attitude to Victoria's Secret DREAM ANGELS DESIRE, BODY, and SEXY LITTLE THING. Also somewhat similar to Creed SPRING FLOWER. Also somewhat similar to x, y, z... It's good to know that those seeking a safe office scent that makes people take note, at most, of their having recently showered, need not worry: they are in ample supply!

I'm not saying that there are no distinctions to be drawn between the large selection of such floral fruity fragrances on the market. I'm simply saying that all of them occupy a relatively small plot of perfumeland dedicated to this specific genre. But the primary distinctions inhere in the openings, which are evanescent anyway, so comparing them is rather like a Guinness Stout drinker attempting to identify the fine distinctions between various light beers. An exercise in futility, since the beverage of choice lies rather far from all of them!

That said: BOSS WOMAN is a high-quality fruity floral with just a smidgeon of soapiness in the drydown and good staying power in the edp. Very nice, if that's the sort of juice you're looking for!

Lovely!Nice, clean and elegant. It's also longlasting. I would like to have smell this perfume within the office. But if you are looking for something sexy then it's wrong address. The most dominant note is freesia to me. Well balanced!I love this!
You feel calm if you use it in the fall and you feel cheerful if you use it in the spring!

After trying a few others, I have to revise my review of this one.
At first, this struck me as a typical overly sweet fruity floral, common and in no way unique.
I still think it smells like alot of other scents but it is not as syrupy as I first thought. It does have a redeeming maturity after awhile that keeps it from being a tosser. Better than some, not as good as others.

a couple weeks ago tried it in a department store again. Good news: it is not as sour as I experienced it before, but I don't love it as much as I used to. It doesn't have the same intoxicating effect, but I still think it is good perfume..i have some attachment to it. Good for casual use, work, all-rounder in general

A dear friend of mine was using it all the time when it was launched and it suited her so.A little boyish, sharp, with a burst of fruity freshness, for a beautiful, clever and sharp tongued tomgirl! Whenever I feel it on someone it reminds me of my friend.It has a personality and class - a very modern scent you can wear about anytime and anywhere.

it was my absolute favorite back in 2001-2003, but I don't know why it started annoying me for a few years by now, either my taste changed or my perfume went sour and tester I tried in store was off too. This fragrance as I remember had 'IT', very elegant, recognisable, contemporary with a difference, and there was nothing sour in it!I try it again in a few other places, I wouldn't be calm until unearth what went wrong here
