The clever people at Diesel have taken the hugely popular and highly rated Diesel Only the Brave men’s fragrance and created this brilliant limited edition packaging and bottle to celebrate the release of the much-anticipated film Captain America: The First Avenger. Based on the Marvel comic series that first appeared in 1941, the film stars Chris Evans as the sickly soldier who volunteers to participate in an experimental programme that turns him into a Super Soldier known as Captain America. It’s actually had really good reviews, too.
But back to the fragrance (and its packaging)! The scent is the same as before, with notes of amber, black rose, ebony wood, mandarin orange, coriander, cedar and lemon, creating a woody and leathery masculine scent that’s hard to beat – like Captain America (see what I did there?).
But what’s so special about this limited edition, is the cool packaging. The legendary comic-book artist, Bryan Hitch, was roped in to do the comic-strip packaging and the bottle is blue (like our hero’s spandex) and fist-shaped, and bears the patriotic shield emblem.
Diesel Only the Brave Captain America 75ml Eau de Toilette pour homme natural spray retails for R680 and is available at all good stores.
