Reviews of Only The Brave Tattoo

Not terrible, but just too sweet, generic and synthetic for me. Projects very well and heat helps this juice jump off your skin.

Tried this and purchased it there-and-then. The bottle originally caught my eye with its playful design which you can pose in different positions (cap horizontally or vertically) and quality feel.

I was expecting something rogueish, piercing, punk like the engraving on the back of Diesel watches of which I own a few. I guess I expected it to smell like ink? It doesn't. It's very sweet; my first thought was chamomile tea, but it's broodingly musky and that puts it on the masculine end of the unisex scale. Definitely a heavier fragrance, more wintery and nocturnal.

Four stars.

Whoa! Very in your face, BIG synthetic sweet fruity/spicy blast on the initial spray! I get mostly apple, tobacco and a boatload of benzoin and not much else.

It's a sharp and vibrant fragrance, with a slightly dark, heavy side as well. Really quite unique and nice once it mellows out. Very good projection and longevity. Doesn't seem to develop a whole lot....just smooth's out and settles nicely after the opening barrage.;)

It's not quite a "love" for me, but definitely stronger than a "like". It's a scent that I enjoy wearing very much, but once I've worn it....I tend not to revisit it for awhile.(much like my other strong, fruity, synthetic scents like Eros, Black XS, Euphoria Intense, Red Intense and the like...a little goes a long way)

And FWIW-this smells NOTHING like Black XS...the only thing these two scents share is that they are both fruity and synthetic. Completely different in smell, though I really enjoy both equally as much.

It's quite good... Reminds me massively of a very toned-down Joop!, therefore I associate it as a young person's scent, which being Diesel, it is.

Not a bad effort and cheap enough, if you're under 25 it's worth checking out.

Salutation.

A sensual symphony.this is just a sensual scent that says " WOW".ONLY THE BRAVE TATTOO is an impressionable and confident fragrance.It's got sexy all over and you will get alot of attention and compliments from everybody.A bold fragrance so use with care.It is not similar BLACK XS for me. Sweet,Strong,Warm, Provocative,Bold, Magnetic and Completely Irresistible in a Unique bottle.

Red apple and mandarin orange brighten of the fragrance built on a spicy pepper and sage.The base is fanned out on appealing notes of patchouli, woods,benzoin and tobacco,making it a fit fragrance for a evening out when you simply want to be your best and you want a girl to notice you and remember you.It has a sweet spicy scent and when you wear it everyone comments about how great your smell.

This scent will intoxicate even the most discriminant females sense of smell,She'll definitely remember you long after you're finished with your date.ONLY THE BRAVE TATTOO has a sweet spicy scent and when you wear it everyone comments about how great your smell.It is not for the faint at heart. suitable for AUTUMN/WINTER.It is very different than original version and in my opinion this one is much better.my favorite by DIESEL now.Try it before you buy it.

Sillage?Very Good.

Longevity?It lasts all day only with 2 or 3 sprays.

Be Brave... Be You... If it makes you Happy - don a Tattoo...


Diesel, Only the Brave Tattoo is highly underrated..!! While the initial blast of spice notes may be overwhelming, the dry down and thereafter is seductively attractive. The initial notes are a mix of apple, benzoin, pepper, and tobacco. Tattoo then settles into a blend of patchouli, tobacco, and woodsy notes. Do yourself a favor - wait for the dry down..!! I am a huge fan of the (original) "big brother" to Tattoo, Only the Brave. The original OTB is my #1 fragrance in a collection that is increasing toward 500 bottles (wouldn't be so bad but I struggle on which one to wear and dusting the 'dog gone' bottles is a pain in the ___ ..!!) Tattoo may have similar notes as the original, but the fragrance is different. Very different - and being different is OK..!! It is a "dark different" that is spicy - it adds to the mystique of Tattoo.. It is what it is - a great fragrance...

Longevity and Projection/Sillage are above average, lasting more than 6 hours and even longer on clothing. Tattoo has plenty of "Wow Factor" (compliments from the opposite sex) potential. While no compliments wearing today, this fragrance has a certain "dark confidence" that will gain attention. The versatility of this fragrance is a topic of debate. Personally, given the "spicy" undertone, I would suggest Fall and Winter as ideal - but the fragrance is so unique, I could argue that Tattoo could be worn during any season, but preferably at night.

The bottle is a piece of art, classically designed to mirror that of the "big brother" with the addition of a "dark" finish that compliments the fragrance. Very well done. The packaging is sufficient, but I will add that I do keep the boxes (that added security while traveling) and this box came "un-glued", literally, the first day I wore it. It will be our secret that - "duck tape" fixed it up. A check of online pricing shows that Tattoo is moderately (or average) priced.

Tattoo's final tally is 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. I have enjoyed the Only the Brave fragrances, and Tattoo offers a uniqueness that the original does not have. It is this "dark side" that has a seductively attractiveness about it that warrants adding to your collection. I highly recommend.

Daily I.M. - Borrowing a quote from James Dean, "Don't sweat the small stuff - you are who you are meant to be.."
