Only The Brave Cologne by Diesel, Launched in 2009, Only the Brave makes clear what it’s all about, starting from the fist-shaped glass flacon. A heavily balsamic and animalic accord built around leather, this cologne leaves a profoundly masculine impression from the start, with notes of leather apparent from the first application. This opening is joined by sparkling lemon and mandarin orange to deliver a fresh burst of energy to the senses. The earthy heart uses cedar, violet and coriander to contrast the citrus opening and lead into the long-lasting drydown. Warm, rich amber and labdanum combine with the ever-present leather notes and resinous benzoin and styrax to surround the wearer for hours.
