So to be totally honest: When I go shopping for a new perfume Diesel isn’t the first brand that comes to mind, but as Diesel Bad (released in mid September) with a bad boy attitude came along I thought I’d give it a chance. First of all the description of the man who uses it fits me perfectly; “He’s dangerous, he’s self-absorbed, he’s nonchalant, follows his natural intuition, believes in himself and is brave enough to create his own world where nothing can stop him from getting what he wants. He’s the man everyone wants to be.” I might be a bit more humble and caring in my plans for conquering and dominating the world, but apart from that I’m just as bad ass (you know, hard to get, just like in the pic).
So what about the scent itself? It’s rough notes of tobacco and caviar are blended with a fresh air of citrus and when you add cardamom, lavendel and bergamot you actually find a scent that’s just perfect for autumn. It’s masculine, but still sophisticated and besides, the bottle looks good on your bathroom shelf with it’s cool design (and yeah, the liquid is actually copper colored).
So from having been a Diesel sceptic, I’m actually really liking this scent and will wear a small splash of it on occasion (don’t wear too much tho, ever!) You’ll get a 75 ml EDT for approx 75€.Photographer: Andreas Paulsson
