How to apply XY (100ml) by Hugo Boss
XY aftershave for men would perform better on clean skin, apply it right after you shower or bath and dry off. A warm shower or bath will open the skin’s pores and provide a good base for the Hugo Boss after shave.
To help Hugo Boss fragrance for men last even longer moisturize with an unscented body cream before you apply your XY aftershave. Well moisturized skin ensures that Hugo Boss fragrance locks on to your skin if it is smooth and soft, rather than dry and rough.
It is best to spray XY EDT (100ml) by Hugo Boss directly onto bare skin on selected areas. Doing this creates chemistry between the skin and the XY aftershave, allowing it to mingle with your natural body oils that results in a more personalized scent.
Spray XY EDT (100ml) from 4 to 6 inches (ten to fifteen centimetres) away from your body and allow it to evolve on the skin.
Expert Tip: Do not spray XY aftershave into the air like a cloud and walk through it. It is a great way to scent your room with Hugo Boss fragrance, but as for your person, it’s wasteful.
Hugo Boss fragrance should be applied to your pulse points to make your scent last longer. These points are places where blood vessels are close to the skin and allow Hugo Boss scent linger for longer. There is extra heat at these points, and because heat rises into the air, XY fragrance will diffuse more naturally. Your ideal pulse points to apply Hugo Boss scent include:
Behind the ears
Nape of the neck
Base of the throat
Inside your elbow
On your chest
Expert Tip: Do not spray Hugo Boss aftershave for men on all pulse points at once. Start with one and work from there to ensure that XY scent is not too overwhelming.
After spraying XY aftershave never rub your wrists together. This breaks down the molecular bonds and permits top notes of XY scent to break down faster than normal.
Rub a thin layer of petroleum jelly over your pulse points before spraying Hugo Boss. XY aftershave for men will last longer as the petroleum jelly acts as a barrier that helps to lock in the scent.
To boost Hugo Boss fragrance for men, you can use different products such as: shower gels, soap, lotions, deodorant, aftershave balms or body spray that have the same or similar scent alongside it. Hugo Boss offers matching products to complement their fragrances.
The hair can hold the scent of the Hugo Boss fragrance for men even longer than the skin. Spray XY aftershave on your comb and run it through clean, dry hair if you desire some extra scent in your hair. Don’t spritz Hugo Boss aftershave directly onto your hair, as the alcohol can make your hair dry and cause damage.
If you have sensitive skin, spraying XY fragrance by Hugo Boss on your clothes is a good alternative. Your clothes can hold the scent of XY aftershave for men for a much longer time. Avoid spraying Hugo Boss after shave on light coloured clothing or on delicate fabrics like silk, that can be easily stained by perfume oils.
Expert Tip: You can get your clothing to smell like your favourite scent of XY aftershave. Line your drawers and wardrobe with tissue paper that has been spritzed with your signature Hugo Boss scent a few times and allow the scent to infuse the fabrics.
Expert Tip: Do not spray XY aftershave on jewellery since this will tarnish it.
Wearing aftershave is personal – but you should wear enough Hugo Boss so you can smell it, and not too much that it is overpowering to others. XY perfume for men should be a gentle cloud of scent that trails subtly behind you (known as sillage). If you are able to smell just a touch of Hugo Boss aroma every now and then you probably have enough on.
Expert Tip: When you are using XY Eau de Toilette, 3-4 sprays should be sufficient. A Hugo Boss fragrance should be a subtle enhancement to man’s image - less is more.
Layering men aftershaves including Hugo Boss is a unique and popular way of wearing fragrances. As a beginner, you can try to wear two scents from the same fragrance family as XY such as Woody Aromatic, but as you become more confident and daring with mixing you can layer as many as you like.
Expert Tip: To layer the most suitable way XY (100ml) fragrance, spray the heavier mens aftershave first then the lighter one.
If you spritz on too much XY aftershave for men, you can rub on an unscented body lotion to help dissipate the scent or wash where you've applied the Hugo Boss fragrance with an unscented soap. If you are on the go and applied too much XY aftershave, you can simply remove it with alcohol wipes. Then you can reapply with the preferred amount of XY scent.
If you are looking for a fragrance that is light and fresh and not too long-lasting, choose an Eau de Toilette by Hugo Boss.
