    Default Well that made me mad.

    I was going to test a bottle of Diesel Fuel for Life at good old Walmart cause they have a set for like 25 bucks. I sprayed a tiny bit on my hand the other day from the tester, and it smelled pretty good. Pretty beastly to. I went back to really test it and some thief had stole the tester! Butt heads. Kinda has that uber sweet bubblegummy base like Joop, one Million, or Eros but it didn't give me a headache from my hand.

    My friends wife would not shop at Walmart because she saw some people use the deodorant and put it back on the shelf.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    LOL! I thought we fragheads dumped cologne on our heads to cover up our B.O.! That's what some "fashion gurus" say.

    It's OK, my wife thinks it is nice. If you want to test it further most Kohl's usually have a tester out for this one, although at $25 and you liked it from limited testing you may as well just buy it.

    I remember reading somewhere in an interview with one of the perfumers, Annick Ménardo, that the inspiration for this fragrance was Gold Dial Soap.

    Good grief!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Fuel For Life is one of those scents that I like but can't quite figure out why. It's a bit weird, but weirdly compelling. For $25, I'd say go for it if you've already smelled it and like it.

    Really? That's interesting! I never would have guessed.

    Oof. One of the many reasons why I have so much respect for people who work in retail is that they have to put up with a LOT.

    I look at Diesel Fuel for Life kind of like I do Curve. They are cheapies that just smell good. Don't be ashamed.

    Both perfect examples of "dumb reach" scents that provide good pleasure for the money.
