Reviews of Diesel

Peppery amber with hints of citrus that starts off smelling very poor, but very quickly meld all together in a pseudo spicy floral that lasts forever.

Definitely worth having and vastly overlooked.

Green and peppery. Floral and sweet. Oh it's also been discontinued and Diesel's been making some really funky smelling stuff.

Lots of black pepper in the opening—it’s very prominent and the rest of the notes seem to just provide background. Personally, I like it the way the pepper is used — it adds a somewhat near elegance to the fragrance and it reminds me a little of the opening of Heritage. The pepper is just one of the spices that join with the bergamot to create the spicy / citrus opening: cardamom and ginger are identifiable, too. The heart notes are spice, florals, and conifers. The vanilla from the base is present even in the opening, but it never seems to become an overly sweet fragrance. Diesel is a very nice scent. It doesn’t smell like a mid ‘90s creation: It seems to have some characteristics of the ‘80s. It has a decent dry down—musk, thyme, tonka and vanilla: a bit more presence in the drydown than was typical for the ‘90s lower end designer fragrances. It has the conglomerate accords of the 90’s, but the notes themselves are comparatively non-synthetic and more classic than the popular 90’s frags. Good longevity. Diesel is a very nice fragrance, and I place it somewhere between a neutral and a thumbs up. (Edit of March 10, 2008 review.)

It's a quite pleasant scent! I can feel some citric notes sweetened with vanilla and tonka in It. Nothing outstanding, but a good fragrance for people who don't want to spend a lot of money. Worth a try!
