Hugo Red Cologne by Hugo Boss, Sharp, dynamic and outstanding in every way, Hugo Red is an oriental-spicy men’s cologne, unconventionally designed for a class all its own. The 2013 release evokes the energy of contrasts with two chords running through the composition, as described by the creator. The “Solid Chill” of tart and fruity notes opens with grapefruit and leads into rhubarb and pineapple, fresh and with an edge to it. Standing opposite from it, the “Liquid Heat” notes feature pink pepper and galbanum that give way to cedar and then warm amber. Between these, a distinctive metallic scent runs through the fragrance, signifying the clash between the two aspects embodied in this cologne.
