Horrendous. It opens with clean light musk aquatic notes with a touch of pepper/leather, not bad but not great. After the top notes quickly wear off, this stuff turns very cloying and gross and does not go away. It stays in that unpleasant state until washed off. I know someone who wears this and can't say I enjoy smelling them. Synthetic musky pepper, I would never buy this again and tossed most of the bottle.
In my opinion This cologne is Regretful of Their bottle.some people spent more money on the bottle concept than they did not on the Scent.
I wouldent say it is a Mesterpiece or Unique of DIESEL but for me it is A Good creation. Nice and Gentle.A mood elevator in SPRING weather. Meantime i wouldent say OTB is Seductive or Special but certainly that is A nice scent for the pleasure of the wearer.
A little strong in the begining but after a few minutes it smells is Soft and Light.The Bottle is Amazing,A wonderful design.Everyday i must touch this bottle!Perfect for EVERYDAY and INTIMATE occasion.
LONGEVITY?preponderant Than a EDT on my skin.
It takes either originality, natural smelling ingredients, or at least a modicum of care to make a “clean, fresh” men’s fragrance that doesn’t smell like a household cleaning product. The bad ones smell like liquid hand soap. The really bad ones smell like Diesel’s Only the Brave.
Only the Brave consists largely of two accords. One, a blend of aquatic notes and caustic, sinus-piercing woody ambers, is meant to smell “clean,” but actually smells like something I’d use to disinfect my toilet bowl. The other, a potent artificial “froot” flavor, no doubt meant to smell “fresh,” in fact smells like the solid air freshener in the nearest public men’s room. Together, they smell just plain bad.
The fruit/aquatic/pseudo-woods arrangement is potent, linear, and lasting, which I suppose is great if you like this sort of thing. The drydown reveals the abrasive woody amber in near isolation, relieved only by a trace of dish washing detergent white musk. The whole thing is a hackneyed idea, distinguished only by the stunning ineptitude of its execution. Wear it only around people you hate.
Frty and generic scent, synthetic and on my skin really very dull. Mandarin lolly top nose lead into styrax and lots on benzoin. The assigment of a chemistry class project. The decent longevity of five hours is a drawback in this case.
I recently have begun dipping my toe into artisan/niche perfumery and I decided to sort through the designer frags in the cupboard to decide what I should keep or toss. i couldn’t recall why I haven’t worn this one in awhile. I tried it on and was immediately reminded. On my skin, it opened with a burst of citrus and then became treacly sweet….and then it just would not go away. I just kept on smelling it to the point where I wasn’t sure it was still there or that it might be a flashback from some sort of olfactory PTSD.
Fragrances are very individual and I have to admit that sweet smelling fragrances often don’t work well for my skin type. That’s probably the reason why for a long time I kept to some very safe citrus choices. Recently I have found that all sweet/floral scents do not behave in the same way. There is nothing in this scent (not the amber, violet or mandarin) that I haven’t encountered in other scents that agree with me very well. Consequently, I now try, whenever possible, to obtain a sample and try it on different body areas on more than one day before I buy….except incense fragrances, particularly Dzongkha. No way to go wrong with that one.
