I was sent a sample of Deisel’s new cologne, Only The Brave and passed it along to my friend Scott who kindly agreed to review it for me. Read on below to find out his thoughts on the scent!
Diesel “Only the Brave”: A dude’s review
I’m not much of a “product” using guy. Maybe it was one too many baths in Polo or Drakkar when I was a teenager, or the futility of getting my hair to look cool with gel or mousse in it. Whatever the reason, I’m generally not one to wear anything fancier than deodorant and a flannel shirt. So when I got a sample of Diesel’s “Only the Brave” cologne, it was surprising that it didn’t instantly wind up perfuming my trash.
I’d been feeling like I needed to change my normal routines, though, so I decided to give it a try. I put a little bit on before going out with some friends. I was mildly surprised.
The scent was subtle, not fruity and overpowering, and it didn’t choke me with alcohol fumes. It actually smelled… decent to me. Shocker! After a little while it mellowed to the point where I was only vaguely aware that I was wearing man-perfume. That was a good thing in my opinion. Some ladies that had come out to meet us actually asked what cologne I was wearing and were very complimentary about it. Also a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to start dousing myself in the stuff on a regular basis. But if there is some kind of special occasion, the kind that requires cuff links and a tie tack, the kind that might involve scent-loving members of the opposite sex… well, I might have to hit that particular bottle again.
Diesel Only The Brave is available at major department stores nation-wide.
