    Default Only The Brave by Diesel

    I'm less interested in the notes (leather, lemon, woody cedar notes and amber) and more dazzled by the fist shaped bottle and the 'face' of the scent, model (and one time Madonna boy-toy, Tony Ward) - see below.

    Supposedly you European Basenoters should see this on shelves sometime in March '09, while us in the US won't see it until May.



    I wish I liked Diesel scents as much as I like their unique and clever bottles.

    Let's hope it's not another Fuel For Life - I hate it and it's very popular here.

    I hear ya. Seconded. When I saw a magazine spread for this on the weekend, this was my sentiment exactly. (Though, I imagine it will be a hit with its target market).

    Shades of LeMale? Though not quite as overt....

    Mmhm, cant they squeeze enough money out of Fuel for Life anymore?
    Il try it out though, once it has hit the stores, I have to admit I quite liked FfL, however nowhere near fbw.

    quite possibly the coolest bottle I have ever seen.

    The fist bottle with Diesel "ring" looks kind of cool. It should definitley appeal to the young male market. Otherwise, I have been really unimpressed with their other frags.

    I'm on the "bottle is tacky" side. Really tacky!

    I'll smell it, but I'm not expecting much.

    We Love or hate a scent before we ever sample.....When will we learn?
    I'll wait to sample and then make a statement......Does sound interesting....

    I'm digging the bottle. To me, it looks very 'Salvador Dali' in an obnoxious, marketing/branding kind of way.

    tacky, but not nearly as bad as the le male bottle.

    it will probably smell better, too, despite being generic as always

    I think the bottle is badass. But then again I'm probably the bottle's target demographic (17y/o). Fuel for life's bottle on the other hand was a bit overdone.

    The notes at Now Smell This mention that Olivier Polge is working on it (well, with a team of course). Maybe a new Dior Homme?

    (Okay, I'm really hoping because I like Diesel's stuff...)

    I see it's listed on the Sephora website, but not available yet. Anybody actually see it in any stores yet?

    I have a feeling this will smell like Pi Neo. Interested to see how it turns out!
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    That bottle reminds me of the movie Undercover Brother - very funny spoof - "Solid!"

    Looks like we found Le Male's hands.

    We need the rest of him. We can use Dali's nose and lips. It's like Mr. Potato Head for fragrances.

    I believe I have finally seen a bottle more tacky than fierce. Same intended market, both a little too embarrassing to have in your gym-bag...at least the sticker comes off the fierce bottle.

    Does it smell as pretentious as it looks?

    Will Mr. Ward be reprising his famous bathtub performance for the advertising?

    Inquiring minds want to know.
