So we’re into September you know the unofficial start of Autumn… (where has this year even gone?!) and it seems most peoples (especially bloggers) favourite time of year! With a seasonal change, a few wardrobe changes are inevitable! Why not add a new fragrance as well?
Only the Brave – Street, which is Diesel’s new take on one of their popular fragrances, takes its inspiration from the energy of the street. The new scent has been developed by perfumer Nelly Hanchem-Ruiz. This new edition is fresh and vibrant and doesn’t have much resemblance to the original scent, which was first launched in 2009.
The design of the bottle is much like the other versions of Only the Brave, in the style of a clenched fist! The painted textured glass bottle imitates textured concrete to give it that ‘street’ look which I quite like!
The scent itself opens with herbal, fresh top notes of basil, apple and bergamot. It has spicy heart of cardamon and unique licorice notes. It drys down to leave classic woody base notes of cedar and vetiver and softness with vanilla.
The sillage or the fragrance trail is moderate to heavy. The longevity (how long the fragrance lasts) is moderate, expect to need a top up after a few hours. I’d say its for perfect for either day time or evening wear.
