Think he's often rated worse than he is here!
Use Dark Blue since the turn of the millennium. Hugo Dark Blue was beside the Bogner Man EDT for me the entrance into fragrance world. At that time still without Internet (and Influencer) but for expensive money in the Parfumerie acquired, then it is meanwhile in the offer in the 2nd row for around 20€ to have.
Dark Blue isn't (anymore) the best seller for me, but I think it's OK! Think he's often rated worse than he is here! (Which often happens to boss scents. "Suit, Benz driver, BWLer"... It is a natural part of the prejudices of the "8x4" and "G.BELLINI 4,99€" users :-D Do not misunderstand;have nothing against people who use cheap deodorant or scent, and not everyone has the coal left for scents >50€+)
I find you can use the fragrance all year round and also for all everyday conditions. The fragrance is not as heavy as some others in my collection, and as "just like that" for shopping or the like I still find it suitable. Also as far as durability is concerned. For such 2-3 hours of "events" quite ok. As daily scent there are meanwhile other scents with a substantially better performance

Fusion Club 2003.
Dark Blue was the first Boss fragrance I bought in 2003.
Me and my buddies had planned to go to Münster to the Fusion Club and were looking for a new fragrance especially for this evening.
In the D..... Branch on Cologne's Schildergasse I immediately noticed the dark blue bottle of Hugo Boss.
Already with the first test sprayer I knew that it fits perfectly to this season (it was autumn) and is perfect for the evening.

The hair to Spykes Styled, G-Star bootcut Jeans, Dark Blue Everlast zip-sweater and Hugo Boss Dark Blue fit together like a fist on the eye.

Already in the regional train direction club someone asked me what kind of smell it is and from then on I was convinced that Dark Blue was the right choice for this evening.

Arrived in front of the club with a bit of jitters (was only 16) I came in without asking the bouncer.
We danced off, drank a lot and smooched with strange women + mobile phone number there were also.

I got to hear only positive for the fragrance and one woman even said that she finds the fragrance sexy. I can't believe many people think he smells musty. Clearly between 2003 and 2019 lies already a long time and therefore it can also be natural that something was screwed on him and he smells nowadays really "musty" and "dusty".
Good that my current bottle is still from 2009.

I have just as nice memories of the fragrance as I did of Boss Bottled and have no doubt that Dark Blue is a good fragrance.

Totally disliked!
This was the only cologne I could never stand. What a bad smell which lingers, I am not sure how people still like it. Don't even want to write more about it but that's my personal opinion and am sure many share it.

Mysterious but basic and a little boring. Safe scent to wear on a cold night or even a date, but nothing that'll make her remember you.

my young adult fragrance at the time, when launched, had it after Hugo, like the spicy and woody feel, well balanced, very affordable by now

It's turned 20 years old, yet it's so modern with the fresh scent of the citrus head, spicy heart, and resin and mossy base for fall days.
