Review: Carolina Herrera Bad Boy
Carolina Herrera fragrances invite the gents of today to unleash their rebellious side and experience the Bad Boy within with its latest fragrance Bad Boy. The captivating scent draws inspiration from the eternal rebel who dares to break the rules and walk his own path. He is sensitive, powerful, empathetic, heroic, and venerable. Bad Boy plays on these characteristics with a blend of notes that create an Oriental Aromatic scent that captivates and lasts on the skin.
Fragrance Name: Carolina Herrera Bad Boy Eau De Toilette
Notes: Sage, Green Bergamot, Pepper, Tonka Beans, Cocoa, and Amber wood.
Described as: Oriental Aromatic, this scent opens with green freshness and very quickly becomes warm unveiling notes of spice and woods. Cocoa adds a delicate sweetness while softening the intensity of the spicy and wood accords making this fragrance mesmerizing.
Wear it: During the cooler months of the year. Bad Boy has a nice warmth that isn’t overpowering making it suitable for wear day or night, casually or suited up.
The Verdict: I experience this scent in September last year while traveling via the Middle East. I was captivated by the bottle initially which is shaped like a lightning bolt constructed from midnight blue glass and balanced with a striking gold base. The lightning bolt design references the fragrance's ability to seduce and captivate, fast and precise like lightening.
The fragrance itself surprised me if I’m honest. I like fragrances that have intense notes of wood and spice and found this scent to pack a punch without being intense. I enjoy the combination of sweetness, freshness, and warmth. It also lasts on the skin for hours and on the spray card which I had in my pocket during a long-haul flight, which retained the essence of the fragrance almost 24 hours later.
There’s so much to enjoy about this fragrance and I wear it regularly. It’s also a people pleaser making it a great gift idea for the gents in your life especially if you’re not sure about their fragrance choices. Well done Carolina Herrera!
