    Default Okay I figured out Diesel Only The Brave

    Remember I kept saying this smelled like something I smelled before.....

    Well I got it and two other people commented on this too it smells like Prada Amber for women. It is the rich amber notes this scent has along with the leather that does it!

    Any one else see this???

    Ive never smelled prada amber for women, but after finally smelling Only The Brave, I can say that it DOES in fact smell similar to Armani Diamonds!

    That's exactly what I thought, too... Prada for women, with a hefty dash of Angel thrown in.

    I couldn't see myself wearing it, given all the Angel and Prada fans here in town...

    I mostly had a lemon note reminiscent of L'eauparkenzo, but the drydown is identical to Fuel For Life. I haven't tried any other Diesels to call this a house note but those two definitely share it.

    Yes Angel with Prada thrown in and a dash of lemon. This is too sweet and aromatic for the summer season I thing...

    I tried this today and am miffed by the comments. It's super citrussy with a strong grapefruit note on me at first. Then it dries down to a lush woody scent with a faint sweetness and tart bite. I disliked it and now am really liking it. The bottle is so over the top and ridiculous I have to smile and love it. Glass knuckles!

    I just tried this yesterday and all I got out of the drydown was a soapy baby powder mess. The girlfriend shared the same sentiment about it. Not impressed.

    It does have that signature fruity / rasberry top note that Fuel for Life has.

    I find Fuel for Life quite linear. It's opening notes are essentially the dry down - is the opening different?

    i tried this Before in strips

    But today i tried it for the first time in my skin

    i can get the amBer, i think today is the oficial day where i can say i can put my finger on the amBer note in a fragrance
    first i graBBed an amBer incense stick , and it smelled kinda sweet
    an hour after tried for the first time baldessarini - amBrè
    and yeah, it kinda smelled sweet like the incense stick
    then an hour after tried only the Brave , and got this similar sweet viBe to Baldessarini - amBrè
    and yeah it smells alike, so i guess i know now how the amBrè smell like



    also in the fragrance(only the Brave)
    i get a note that reminds me of Armani - Code
    call me crazy, But i get something a lil Bit similar
    i know it's not the amBer, it might Be something else
