All that glitters is not gold... Or is it?
Diesel, a label that is known for its solid jeans and makes quite nice watches. When it comes to fragrances, Diesel often goes in a direction that could upset many people. Too sweet and sticky, too chemical, even weird, but still quite unique creations, which often need real courage to do it to others. Nevertheless, I like the label, especially for solid Mega Chief watches, which I may call my own, and for one or the other fragrance. My first touch in terms of perfume was the good old Fuel For Life Homme, which convinced me with its very unique scent of anise, grapefruit and lavender. The Only the Brave series wasn't really mine, except for the tattoo. But I liked the Harzig Grüne Spirit, for whose advertising campaign the best football actor was hired, all the better. Unfortunately the performance was a mild breeze, just like Neimar's badly acted somersaults in front of the goal! Through Parfumo I recently became aware of the Intense and tested it the next time I visited the perfumery. Here I was really positively surprised that Diesel sometimes brings a fragrance that could exceptionally appeal to a wider audience. In fact, the golden fist is really a fragrance that surprised and convinced me immediately at the first test, which is why I had to add it to my collection soon.
About the scent itself... DSOBI starts fresh and fruity with a not too sweet, apple, bergamot and vanilla combination, which reminds me a bit of Armani's Code Profumo and a bit of Versace Eros. This combination loses the citric nuance of bergamot relatively quickly and the apple moves with the increasingly prominent vanilla note towards the middle, where a little resinous green cypress joins in. The sage comes through here more and more and gives the fragrance a slightly spicy touch that has something almost tannic in my nose. The middle is very harmonious and warm at this stage. The base is a mix of warm vanilla and somewhat earthy patchouli.
The performance is much better than the normal spirit, and the fragrance remains present on my skin for up to 10 hours. The charisma is especially in the initial phase well noticeable and becomes skin-tight after 2-3h. Nevertheless, the fragrance remains well in the nose until the end and slowly flattens.
The bottle... I'll make a big statement... D Very kitschy but handy, with a very cool spray head
In conclusion...write that Diesel has definitely released a fragrance here that is definitely aimed at a wider audience. It seems to be quite solid and balanced and scores with a nice mixture of fruit, resin and sweetness, which lasts quite long. I can also recommend it with a clear conscience and advise you to test it at your next perfumery visit
