Spot landing in the mainstream !
"Excuse me, where's the mainstream?"

Well, always the nose long ;-)

"Very funny, can you be a little more specific?"

But of course, ... they start with a grapefruit that looks a little artificial and is more soft than citric, but very refreshing. Meanwhile, leave the bergamot on the left, which is not perceptible anyway. From the beginning you will be accompanied by rosemary that somehow reminds me of a mixture of predominantly ginger and a little cardamom, which is over the whole course of fragrance the essential odor, nice warm and spicy. She is constantly surrounded by a ghost called Pamplewood.

"Who's that supposed to be?"

I don't know, but it's on the map. And maybe it also contributes to this warm, slightly spicy, very pleasing scent, which you can hear all the way along, but it is not made of wood.

And so after three and a half hours a fine vetiver creeps in, which in the further course indicates more and more the direction. It is slightly citric and appears quite bright and transparent.

In total you need about 5-6 hours, on clothes it could take 1-2 hours longer.

"Man, that sounds great and I'll repeat it again: Well, basically three milestones, grapefruit, rosemary and vetiver, with the middle one being the biggest. The bergamot doesn't go with it and Pamplewood seems in spirit ... somehow clear and confusing at the same time. Can't you be a little more precise?"

OK, you're the boss, here are the coordinates:

Conclusion: You can say what you want about the Boss fragrances of recent years, this REVERSED is anything but special, but we can't just be in niches. So I consider this well balanced fresh spicy fragrance especially suitable for work and leisure. It doesn't bother anyone and seems rather pleasant and attractive at the same time. In other words, a

Spot landing in the mainstream !

Refreshingly different
I've had this one for a few months. Now after some tests a comment. Boss is more of a gray mouse when it comes to scents in the last years. In my opinion most of the Boss fragrances are in the solid midfield. They don't really rub off and they don't really stay in your memory with the big wow-effect. This one is one of the better ones for me. It has a special DNA that is really interesting.
I don't know if it should be a Hugo Flanker. The lid of the classic suggests it. Possibly even just an attempt to succeed with the old concept. There is no real similarity to the classic from the 90s. The Reversed series is mirror-inverted and also represented in the fashion world. I own some of the items in this series. It's cool to get something different and also in the offer already cheap.

The bottle comes in beautiful white, which usually stands for clean fresh scents. It's a bit of a match here, although it does have a nice juicy, spicy note.
The scent pyramid is rather small and looks rather boring and ordinary. Whether it is so complete I dare to doubt. It seems more saturated somehow. Maybe it's because of the molecule pamplewood, which combines woody- citric elements. The grapefruit is in the foreground especially at the start. Juicy-citric-fruity paired with beautiful bergamot. Very energetic and modern. Grapefruit mountain moth sounds boring and ordinary, but here with a very unique DNA. In addition there is a nice pleasant but subtle spice. According to Pyramid Rosemary. The dry-down is then woody fresh and pleasant.
All in all a great fragrance that stands out from the usual citric scents and attracts positive attention. Should definitely be tested if you are looking for an inexpensive fresh scent. 125ml are already available for about 30 Euro. In my opinion it is a fragrance for the whole year. Reads like a summer scent, but I would not wear it in hot temperatures. I recently wore it during sports around 20 degrees and rain, where it worked well. Top for everyday life, leisure and sports activities. For job maybe too little durability, if you want to smell it all day without spraying.
Performance is fine. Lasts a few hours. In the beginning good silage, also later on perceptible at close range. Suitable for many situations.

All in all a great fresh and citric scent with interesting DNA

Grapefruitissimo
"Hugo Reversed" smelled for me, with a blind test without any information, first after a tangy mandarin and a loose find smell. Now, after several test days, by sun and by storm, with knowledge about the scent pyramid and Co., this impression has itself... solid. The mandarin has become more of a grapefruit, and something is lacking in the spine or the woody components, but otherwise it's finally a boss again, who can scold so much...

"Hugo Reversed" always goes down well. I found that out quickly. Great! A fragrance with open arms. Juicy, funny, sweet. Without even a second of being cheap or soggy or sticky. You'd almost want to get yourself sucked in. And so do our fellow men, apparently. It is a creamy grapefruit with slight vetiver undertones and modern-transparent woods that quickly fall silent. This is extremely simple, unspectacular and straightforward. But basically it is simply a pleasant, beautiful fragrance. Especially for the office next spring. Sunny and in a good mood at the touch of a button. Reminds me of a more sympathetic, less squeaky "sauvage."

Flacon: Hugo as usual. Only vice versa and white. Not bad. Not great either.
Sillage: not obtrusive, not super quiet
Shelf life: 5 good hours

Conclusion: Hugo finally has another hit on his hand. Very good for a lot, even if knitted quite simply. But: he is soo a crowdpleaser!

Very helpful Review 22  
If my son were already at the age of perfume....
I'd take Hugo Reversed home with him right now. Was my first thought when I tested it. Attracted me the plain white (white always arouses my interest) packaging.
Very clean, fresh, slightly citrus-heavy with a pleasant flavour (that must be rosemary, which I always like). The fragrance for a nice, casual, handsome youngster.

But that does not mean boring. And boring is basically only who is also boring in spirit...

For fragrance fanatics who expect great uniqueness and overwhelming fragrance developments he is certainly nothing. Vintage fans who can only get fresh scents with an extra touch of musty oak moss will dismiss it as new-fangled stuff.

For me one of the best fresh fragrances I've found in the last....

Under the Calabrian sun
HUGO's Reversed is a great and pleasant fragrance for the day. A day when you wake up in your hotel room in the morning, the sun is shining and you jump into the pool. Afterwards, you let the weights and dumbbells in the gym and after a shower you apply this scent.

For me just a classic fragrance for GYM. Fresh citric with woody nuances in the finish. It radiates power and that you actively shape your life. It is a "doer" fragrance. I would also go so far as to give the fragrance an aquatic touch. On hot summer days an absolute recommendation and very suitable. It is sometimes inconspicuous and unobtrusive but the big show is not necessary. The S+H are therefore, as expected, weaker and lose strength during the day.

But I also think that you don't make a mistake with this perfume, especially since it's quite cheap to get and the fragrance does a solid job on the ground. For me it belongs to my GYM-Essentials.

I'm kind of surprised for what this offers. It's nothing new, but the citruses are very authentic. Not synthetic at all. Good Citrusy Woody.

Hugo Reversed is something between Roja Elysium and Nishane Hacivat. I don't mean about quality but in the vibe. Nice fresh clean cheapy.
