Diesel Bad Fragrance review

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.

    Souns nice. Would you say it's a summer scent or more autumn/winter. Notes sort of say the latter. Also how does te caviar note play

      It's definitely got a vibe of autumn/winter with its muskiness. The caviar note is very very subtle and blend really well to form a very fresh, spicy fragrance!

    I finally managed to get around to reading this and glad I did. I've always avoided Diesel aftershaves after a horrid experience with Diesel Zero Plus but I liked a tester of Bad my wife brought home but it wasn't that strong. Your review with the notes and your own opinion has made sure this is on my to buy list. Review is so good I could almost smell it!

      Thanks for your comments means a lot! For me, its certainly the best fragrance Diesel have brought out and is much better than the previous lines.

    I tried it at the airport in September, but waited until it came down in price a little and just got 125ml for £55 on Amazon. It's certainly fresh and lasts a long time, but one it two squirts is enough for daytime or it can be a little overpowering. I love the mix of muskiness and fresher smells, which really is quite unique.

      Wow that's a very good deal for the 125ml version, you must be pleased! 2-3 squirts is the perfect amount. Its a great smelling fragrance
