    Default Burr gives Fuel for Life Pour Femme by Diesel 3 stars

    '...Diesel puts great stock in weirdness — a calculated, carefully-designed meticulously-crafted weirdness. Its new fragrance, Fuel for Life Pour Femme, smells like canned fruit compote. The smell is “canned” because it’s vaguely metallic. “Fruit” because it’s fruity in the way that Juicyfruit gum is “fruity.” I use the word “compote” because there is absolutely no recognizable fruit species here; not even the hybridized tangelo comes close...'

    Congratulations to Diesel but I'm not going to get any bottle. I tried a sample and found it was just another one, like many others, of those sweet-fruity-trendy things. Yawn.

    Radical canned fruit syrup. I should probably try before judging.

    I don't think I'll be taking Burr too seriously after this.

    edit: Didn't see the "pour femme" in the thread title. My bad.

    I got a whiff of this today at the perfume counter, and I wasn't impressed.

    To me it smelled like cherry grenadine syrup with a heavy dose of sugar. If I want something that sweet (or cherry flavored), I think I would be happier ordering a Coke with the addition of said grenadine.
