Hi there! Today’s post is about this Hugo Boss Pure Purple Eau De Parfum which I got in a swap with a good friend.
This fragrance contains the following notes: Nectarine and cyclamen (top notes), black velvet und floral notes (heart notes), and marzipan, suede and amber (base notes). This sounds like a rather unusual and interesting combo!
I’ve worn this fragrance most days for the past 3 weeks, and I think it’s pretty in its own way, but it’s not a favourite.
When I spray it on me, Pure Purple is a cyclamen and sugar bomb. Fortunately, the sugar doesn’t cancel out the floral freshness – although it disappears within minutes. Then the fragrance gets sweeter and sweeter. I think the “velvet” and the “floral notes” are basically violets. Maybe with a hint of orris root? There’s no suede – at least I can’t smell any. The marzipan note is very strong though! And it lasts and lasts and lasts…
I wouldn’t necessarily think that this fragrance smells “purple”. It has more of a pink feel to it. Sweet pink – very suitable for teenagers. Although this fragrance is, of course, much more elegant compared to what the drugstore has to offer to teens.
If you’re interested, Hugo Boss Pure Purple Eau De Parfum is available as 50ml and 90ml. I’ve seen these 2 sizes on ebay.
