Does your man need a new cologne? This is it. Diesel Only the Brave 'represents the qualities of the brave, symbolized by a fist that tells several stories: Facing forward, the fist evokes power and energy.' Not only the packaging unbelievably unique, but it smells so good.

My husband loves this cologne. It transfers great from day to night, and the bottle is a fun addition to his side of the vanity.
