Don’t you like to go for stronger scents for a/w? Autumn scents are all about crispy edgy notes for me. I want something that would be so comforting, but would smell warm and festive. I like changing my perfume depending on the season. In Spring and Summer I go for floral, fresh scents, however, in Autumn and Winter, woody oriental scents are what I love the most and Hugo Boss Orange is one of them…

Hugo Boss Orange came out years ago and it is still one of the scents I use during colder months. This perfume has oriental woody scent, it is just easy to wear and it suitable for day or evening. When I wear it, I can smell the sweet spicy notes straight away. It is not like candy sweet, but really warm and citrusy. I also like the mix of apple and vanilla scents and this one is really good in terms of that. Some say it is not long lasting, but I think it lasts for a reasonable time. I mostly wear it in a/w, so a few sprays would last for hours (in summer it doesn’t last as long as it does in winter like most of the other perfumes). I also adore the packaging, it is catchy and it looks so elegant. If you’d like to read about perfumes I use, please have a look at my post Perfumes.

Do you change your perfume depending on the season? Which perfume are you loving at the moment?

  • I love sweet fragrances, they are my favorites for all the seasons!

    This Hugo Boss Orange seems great, beautiful packaging.


    • I am more into sweet scents this time of year 🙂 xox

  • I love the bottle. I don’t change my perfume every season but I definitely do go through phases where I like to wear different ones. I do like the idea of trying something woody for winter but is the smell over overpowering?

    • It is not overpowering, once the perfume settles it gives such soft woody scent. This kind of scents last longer on me during colder months. x

  • Rajwant Kaur Singh

    I’ve never tried any of the Hugo Boss scents, but this sounds ideal for the cooler months

  • Thank you for sharing, I wanna buy a new perfume, but didn’t know which one to go for. Gonna try this one!

    xo, Esther

  • For some reason, I like perfume on other people (provided the scent is one I like), but it bothers me on myself. I don’t really wear it anymore… :-/

    • I like how my perfumes smell on others but I can’t smell them on me, I don’t know why it happens. I guess the chemicals reacts different on different skins, I read something like that before.

  • I totally change my perfume with the seasons! For Winter/ Autumn I love something really warm and spicy and then in Summer I prefer something light and girly! Haha My nose changes with the seasons!



    • I am the same. warm&spicy for a/w and light/fresh for summer, I can’t handle strong smells in summer xx

  • I’ve always wanted to change my scents but never know what to wear when. This sounds like the perfect suggestion! Can’t wait to try it.
    xx, Pia

    • Warm&woody is what I go for in a/w, there are really nice scents. I hope you like this one as much as I do 🙂 xx

  • The packaging of this perfume is gorgeous! I’ve never tried this before, I’ll have to give it a sniff when I’m next at a perfume counter! xo

    Sounds amazing!!

  • This sounds like such a wonderful fragrance and certainly something I would use in Autumn 🙂 I used to have a Summer and Winter perfume when I lived in the UK, now I live in tropical Australia, there’s no seasons so I just have a casual and dressy perfume

  • Marlene Lopes

    Sounds so good 🙂

    Kisses, Mary

  • I do the same with perfumes, fresh floral scents when it`s hot and strong, almost masculine one in the A/W season. This sounds so good, might suggest it to my husband as a Christmas gift.:)

    • Strong scents are perfect for A/W, they last for long. Give this one a sniff, you might like it 🙂 x

  • I think this scent would be a bit too strong for me but I’d like to try it! I am still obsessed with Chanel N°5’s Eau de Première. There’s a few perfumes I have in mind after I finish up the current bottle I’m using.

  • Shwetali

    Sounds Amazing. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Yep, definitely change my perfume accruing to season and right now I am wearing lots of Angel by Theirry Mugler, hands down one of my top favourite perfumes. However the past couple of weeks I have been enjoying Demeter colognes too, it’s been an interesting experience of layering them.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I LOVED wearing Angel for years, it is definitely a perfect perfume for this time of year. Thanks for reminding me that perfume, I will need to check it again 🙂

  • Erin Russell

    I haven’t found a scent for A/W I like yet, so am still rocking my summer scent lol, will need to have a look at this though, it sounds beautiful 🙂

    • I can’t smell my summer scents when it is kinda cold, I need something strong 🙂

  • I can see now why you go for a woody scent in Autumn, it sounds amazing! I don’t really tend to change my perfume up that much, but I should perhaps give it a go 🙂

    Velvet Blush

    • I change my perfumes most of the times, I always go for strong scents in A/W and I love it 🙂

  • I love the way you have photographed the leaf reflecting in the glass of the perfume – I tend to stick to the same perfume throughout the year

  • Amy

    This scent sounds like it’s right up my alley. I love oriental woody fragrances in the fall and winter. Currently I’m loving Body by Victoria. One of the notes is crushed leaves and it is perfect for transitioning into fall.

    • Deeper notes are perfect for A/W, this is one of them!

  • i can just imagine the smell. <3 im excited to drop by their counter and sample this 🙂


  • I actually don’t change perfumes depending on the season because I’m trying to use up all my old ones still lol. I do like the idea of doing that though! I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks for sharing!

    • Using old ones to open a space for new ones 🙂 When it is cold, I think strong ones last longer.

  • Great gift idea for Christmas,xoxo BING.

  • Sounds lovely. I love Venus by Versace and my all time favourite is the original Chloe.

  • I absolutely change my parfume depending on the seasons! It just makes me look and feel put together, haha.

    I was just thinking this morning how I needed to get a new scent. And then I come to your blog, must be fate 😉 I will have to continue to look around. Not sure about Hugo Boss. Did you know that he designed the Nazi uniforms? In knowing that fact I have a hard time purchasing him.


  • Personally, I use the same perfume year-round. I just love it so much, although it’s been discontinued so I have to hunt for a new one 🙁
    This one looks like it was made for Autumn/Winter! So beautiful 🙂
    I’ll have to give it a sniff next time I see it!

    • I hate it when my favourite products are discontinued and I can’t find anything similar to them. I hope you will find new one that you will love xx

    • It smells really good Arwa, you should definitely check it out 🙂 xx

  • I do change slightly during seasons. Summer always calls for freshness. I can not handle a single note of florals when it’s warm. Winter I don’t mind florals as much and I still do reach for crisper scents, but not as regularly.


    • I can’t handle so sweet notes in the summer, they just make me dizzy that’s why I like to wear these scents during colder months 🙂 x

  • This packaging on this looks so lovely and I love that background (just love anything plaid). I don’t wear any scent, but that’s something I’ve always wanted to explore some more!

    xoxo Emily

    • I love anything plaid too, they look so good don’t they? 🙂 I really like this perfume, it is perfect for this time of year. xx

  • Yes, I do like to switch my perfume when the season changes too. I agree with you, a/w is better with a richer, warmer note, less of that airy and fresh like spring and summer. I haven’t found one I like yet. This one seems nice, I might get a sample and try it out! <3

  • Lauren Letizio

    totally agree- to me it makes so much sense to change your scent depending on the weather, some think its crazy but hey it works for me! I will have to try this one out, I do tend to like something a little warmer during these months!

    • Woody scents are perfect for colder seasons, I just can’t handle them in summer.

  • Seeing this post has made me want to go and buy this again, it reminds me of summer so much – such a gorgeous scent!

    xox Nadia

    • Miss Dior smells lovely, you have a good taste 🙂 xx

  • It’s so nice to have a seasonal scent! I would think the orange would turn me off, but I like that it mixes apple and vanilla to balance it out.

    xx Yasmin

    • You don’t really smell orange tho, it is just mix of everything and it is really perfect for this time of year. xx

  • Great scent and lovely bottle x
