I can talk cigars as much as I can talk beauty, travel, food, and yoga - cutters, carriers, lighters, and humidors. So The Humidor is for the guys. I live for my beauty arsenal, but he's a minimalist type of guy so it's with much prodding and asking that I have him review a product. His first choice is Diesel's Only the Brave. I asked him the following questions.
Me: What do you like about the fragrance?
Him: Common is in the ad.
Me: Yes, I know Common is in the ad, but what do you like about the scent?
Him: It's not heavy, it's not girlie, and Common looks cool in the ad.
Me: [Beginning to breathe hard. I am not doing my three-part yogic breath at this point]. Would you buy it again?
Him: Yes, I would. I feel the bottle is a little stereotypical with the ring, but I like the scent a lot. Plus, it features Common.
Me: [Realizing he is a true Common fan]. What's your final thoughts on the fragrance.
Him: It's cool, smooth, and conscious. Just like me and Common.
P.S. The 500 hundred lucky winners who purchased the cologne at Macy's Herald Square in NY received free tickets to his show tonight at Capitale. Those are some super lucky people. I wonder if the men will be wearing Only the Brave.
This is by far my favorite video from Common - Come Close.
