Hugo Boss has launched The Scent Le Parfum for Him and The Scent Le Parfum for Her, new flankers to 2015's Boss The Scent and 2016's The Scent for Her, respectively (and not to be confused with the 2017 The Scent Parfum Editions).
The Scent Le Parfum for Him ~ A 'powerful and sophisticated' interpretation, with ginger, Maninka fruit, iris, woods and leather. In 50 and 100 ml.
The Scent Le Parfum for Her ~ A 'powerful and sophisticated' interpretation, with pink pepper, orange blossom, vetiver and akigala wood. In 30 and 50 ml.

Boss is the master of confusing the customers.
I don’t know — this is silly but there are serious contenders (Dior, Narciso Rodgriguez, among others).
Also, I made it worse by typing error — I called The Scent for Her from 2016 The Scent Le Parfum for Her.
The female version bottle is nicely understated, with the mellow color toning down the aggressive edges. Since I can’t bear pink pepper in perfume, I have little interest in smelling the female version. Not too sure about the “powerful and sophisticated” male version, either – the notes sound ok, but the blurb makes me hesitate to discover what the marketing team thinks “powerful and sophisticated” smells like…hmm, sorry to sound crabby. I need “cozy and soothing” today… LOL.
Perhaps the prior flankers were weak and crude?
