Out of all the fragrances I have bought for Mr IScent, Diesel Zero Plus Masculine is the one he wears every day and likes best. He smells wonderful in it, although it smells different on him than it does on me. On him, it is a fresh, milky musk which is never overpowering, even at 7am when he kisses me goodbye for the day.
On me, it is fresh, green and spicy and could easily be marketed as a feminine Autumn scent without anyone batting an eyelid. The most prominent notes when first sprayed are Green notes, Mandarin, Bergamot and Spice: specifically Cinnamon and Nutmeg. The Green notes are woody and musty, like sodden leaves, but fresh and zingy at the same time. After a while this beds down into a Musky Sandalwood finish, but with sharpness from the Oranges and Cardoman. The Anise sneaks in for the final flourish, with warm Amber and Patchouli rounding things off nicely.
It’s ridiculously cheap for this kind of likable quality. I bought this for around eight pounds in my local Bodycare shop, but it’s pretty much everywhere and very often less than ten pounds.
The bottle has lasted since last Christmas despite daily wear and is still nearly half full, making this extraordinary value for money. It’s not up there with the Serges or the Guerlains, but it’s an excellent buy and I say phooey to male/female labels. This is just a great Autumnal scent.
