Spirit of the Brave Intense by Diesel
What Does Spirit of the Brave Intense Smell Like
Spirit of the Brave Intense by Diesel opens with a crisp, sweet burst of apple, immediately followed by a subtle hint of zesty bergamot. This juicy, refreshing introduction gently paves the way for the herbal sage, adding an intriguing, slightly green and savory dimension into the fold. This middle phase also introduces an undertone of the slightly coniferous cypress, but it's an understated addition, never stealing the spotlight.
As the perfume evolves on your skin, a more pronounced sweetness comes into play. The sweet, indulging vanilla note is front and center in the dry down, beautifully complemented by the warm, resinous tones of amber. There’s also the earthy patchouli, lending a depth and richness to the base, albeit in a subdued, never overpowering manner.
Over all, Spirit of the Brave Intense smells fresh, sweet with a hint of zest and spices at the top, an intriguing herbal heart, and a rich, warming finish. It's an unexpectedly sweet and fresh concoction with an interesting spicy and herbal twist, grounded by a warm, comforting base.
Review of Spirit of the Brave Intense
Diesel's Spirit of the Brave Intense is a masculine scent that emerges with a striking character. It is a fragrance that embodies the essence of the adventurous man, bold and unapologetic, with a nod towards a younger audience. This scent artfully combines the fresh, fruity spark of apple and bergamot, with the earthy undertones of sage and cypress, cultivating a sense of rugged charm. It is a fragrance that pushes boundaries in a pleasing manner.
The standout feature lies in its sweet, synthetic, and spicy blend. This combination is daring yet manages to straddle the line of being pleasantly wearable. The sweetness is not overpowering, and the spicy undertone adds a dash of thrill to its overall composition.
Ideal for the colder months of fall and winter, its warmth radiates on the skin, creating an enveloping scent. This fragrance is suited for leisure and evening activities, making it a versatile choice for a night out or a casual day around town.
However, its staying power and the scent projection could use some improvement. While it is not fleeting, it does not last as long as you might expect from an intense version. The sillage is decent; it won't fill a room but is noticeable enough within a personal space.
The price point offers decent value for its unique composition. The Spirit of the Brave Intense is for the man who is not afraid to assert his individuality. It is a scent that is memorable in its own right, without becoming a cliché in the world of men's fragrances.
