Slightly sour mandarin. Perky pink pepper. Big, dirty jasmine. An almost boozy black current. The jasmine brightens. It loses its dirtiness. black current gets louder. It's very pretty. I smell musk later. Patchouli is weak. This has a bit of masculinity in the background. This is a "safe" fragrance.

I've owned it for a long long time and I find it comforting after the first floral and citrus notes (which are also pleasant) disappear to leave room to patchouli and amber. Longevity is huge, and sillage is very good.
Nothing exceptional, but good nonetheless.

There is good news and there is bad news.

The good news is that the "Femme" version is better than the "Homme" version.

The bad news is that it is just as vile .

I don't know what depresses me more, that this line and these two scents appear in all the middle class shopping stores in the USA (Macy's, JC Penney, Kohl's, etc.) or that people actually buy them and wear them.

What really makes me cry is that Turin gives them both four stars and praises them. I throw up my hands and shake my head in disbelief.

This is a sharp, dry, woody scent like the Homme version, which appears a bit lighter for five minutes or so with a light herbal, woody accord. It then descends quite quickly into the Homme version.

Diesel seemingly, at least to me, has no respect for the human nose. Do avoid both of these at all cost.

In my opinion the bottle and the scent are both undesirable for a lady.FUEL FOR LIFE FEMME not a special thing or a winner for me and I was really expecting more from DIESEL.sharp, strong,fierce, warm,pervasive,bold and feminine.

It starts a little disappointed with spicy and sharp notes that you will be shaked.I find the base notes quite simple and warm. surely it is not a scent for everybody just like male version.

Strong for office use but good for everyday use in Autumn/Winter weather. ideal for a bold character who likes to feel wonderful. I recommend smelling it before buying it to make sure you like it.anyway i prefer FUEL FOR LIFE UNLIMITED than this one.

Genre: Chypre

I'm not all that taken with Fuel for Life pour Femme's sweet fruity top notes. They're a bit artificial, and there is a certain sourness about them that has me wrinkling my nose if I sniff deeply. Happily, the top notes calm down very rapidly, and the scent mellows and rounds out into something much more pleasant. Its torso is an abstract sweet, green, fruity blend, with a very smooth wood and iris skeleton that provides a solid structure to sustain its soft, yielding texture. A little less wood, a little less depth, and Fuel for Life pour Femme would flirt with fruit-flavored bubblegum, but the scent's substance and complexity more than suffice to make it wearable.

My overall impression is of a brightened, lightened gloss on the now classic Calyx. Fuel for Life pour Femme echoes the older scent's neon fruit voice, but tuned up from mezzo to soprano register. In general style I'd class it with the “modern” chypres exemplified by scents like Azzaro Couture and 31 Rue Cambon. Which is to say that while I don't detect an actual moss note in the composition, the powdery iris, the fruity notes, and a touch of labdanum allude to the classic chypre structure, but without casting the same depth of forest green shadow.

Fuel for Life pour Femme grows more floral and continues to soften with age, eventually revealing a warm, indolic white flower accord that projects a welcome sense of animal mystery. Without it the scent might become too prissy and powdery, but its presence keeps my nose engaged through the second and third hour of wear. By the four hour mark Fuel for Life pour Femme fades into a soft ambery drydown before disappearing altogether.

The greatest critical points I can lodge against this scent are its borderline unpleasant (albeit short-lived,) top notes and a certain blandness in its overall demeanor. On the plus side, it is a cheerful, comfortable fragrance that I can imagine being worn with ease on any number of occasions. It also strikes a fine balance in intensity, projecting just enough to make itself known, but never obtruding. So while not in the end groundbreaking, I'd have to rate Diesel Fuel for Life pour Femme a successful composition, and especially promising as an informal, yet never childish, everyday fragrance.

A really pleasant and fresh floral fragrance at the opening, but something different and also generic in the dry down!
First time when you spray it on your skin, it's very fresh with citrusy notes and very natural and beautiful jasmine note and hint of sweetness in the background.
It's not something unique at all, but it's very beautiful that remind you of being in the nature with tons of jasmin and some orange trees around you .
In the dry down things start to change in a generic and almost bad way!
The fresh jasmine note become very light and it's in the background and fresh citrusy smell change to a very sweet fruity smell and some spices in the background. It's good but also very generic that definitely you've sniffed it in so many other fragrances. you have this scent to the end.
I have a patchouli bomb named as "Givenchy Gentleman" and I know how patchouli smell like. I didn't sniff patchouli in this fragrance! Very strange!
Projection is great and longevity is above average.
I think it's good for spring and fall.
Personally I prefer the opening over the dry down and base of this fragrance.
