Brian Buchanan's Review of Spirit of the Brave by Diesel

It has been said that the human brain can hold only three smells in focus.
But in this case, Carlos Benaim has gone way beyond that and it looks like when he made this he held three perfumes in focus: the crab apple and salt of Cool Water, the apple pie and cinnamon of l'Anarchiste, the incense, papyrus and red fruits of Gucci pour Homme.

Taken on its own terms its a fine pong - and better than the original - so bravo!
But sadly, gets nul point for originality.
However, it does make me feel seventeen once again, so, maybe it deserves a point for nostalgia...
