Recently, I was asked if I would like to trial the brand new Diesel fragrance called BAD. Being an avid collector of men’s cologne, I couldn’t wait to test out something brand new. Diesel need no introduction when it comes to fashion and fragrance, having previously released the popular Fuel for Life and Only the Brave scents.
BAD is Diesel’s newest fragrance which has just been released. The look and styling of the bottle is elegant and alluring and gives an air of sophistication with its leather grain embossed pattern. The design is inspired by the classic leather biker jacket. The ‘BAD’ logo on the bottle is transparent which shows the coppery/amber colour of the fragrance inside the bottle.
It has been designed by Perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim. It is supposedly the only fragrance that combines notes of tobacco and caviar! Yes that’s right, I did say Caviar! But don’t let that put you off!
The scent has top notes of Bergamot, Cardamom and Lavender. The heart notes consist of Caviar and base notes of Orris root and tobacco. They all combine well to give a really fresh masculine smelling scent.
For me it has a fresh, woody and spicy musky fragrance, with a citrusy top note. The scent is not too overpowering like some other fragrances can have a tendency to be. I would say its an ideal scent for something in between a work scent and evening fragrance. Think Saturday afternoons or casual dining out mid week.
The BAD fragrance is definitely one I’d purchase in the future. The RRP for the 50ml bottle is £44, which is a fairly reasonable price for a quality fresh smelling scent. This brand new men’s fragrance is available to purchase from Boots and other leading retailers including House of Fraser, Debenhams, Feel Unique and The Fragrance Shop amongst others.
