this week’s grooming essential

Diesel OTB 1Just when I was about to give up all hope of anyone ever releasing an interesting new men’s fragrance again, along comes Only The Brave from Italian fashion house Diesel. Appearing in the shops a few weeks ago it displays a level of wit almost unheard of in fragrance circles thesedays. In fact, you’ve almost got to go back as far as 1995, when Gaultier’s cheeky Le Male torso bottle launched, to see a flacon displaying such a sense of humour.
The fragrance itself is pretty good too – fresh and uplifting with a woody, amber dry down that might not be entirely original but which is brilliantly wearable and masculine all the same. So, thumbs up from me, if you’ll excuse the pun.
