For brands to expand, they must diversify their product range. Diesel has been savvy, capitalizing on the success of the original ‘Only The Brave’ cologne by creating more products for this line. Each has a bespoke perfume packaging design which suits the scent and acts as a point of difference.

What caught our eye about Diesel’s bespoke perfume packaging?

1. Design: The design is very interesting, with the bottle shaped like a clenched fist. Diesel’s logo is fashioned as a ring over two of the fingers. For the ‘street’ scent, pictured above, Diesel has crafted their bottle from concrete. This is clearly closely linked to streets and gives the bottle an urban feel. The final look is unique and masculine and appeals accordingly to Diesel’s key audience well.

2. Materials: The silver metal top contrasts with the industrial concrete bottle, creating a polished look. As can be seen, Metal accents are popular for a reason. These give a sense of authenticity to the packaging. Substitute materials can be used for premium packaging design without costing too much.

3. Display: The perfume POS display showcases the bottles, highlighting the fact that displays need not be large to make an impact.

4. Contrast: Diesel’s bright orange display contrasts with the grey cologne bottle. This commands attention. “Only the brave” is in black text. It is smart to draw attention to this as this product line has great brand recognition.

5. Branding: Diesel has clear branding across all scents in the ‘only the brave’ line. Diesel’s logo is consistent, as is the packaging. ‘Street’s’ box also features a concrete texture. The design on this looks great, with Diesel’s logo printed in foil lettering to stand out and ’Street’ in the same bold red as the display. The final look is clean and cohesive while still interesting.

How does Diesel stand out?

Each perfume bottle and package is identical in terms of specifications. Diesel has played around with color, lettering, and design with their custom packaging to ensure that each product stands out. ‘Tattoo’s’ bespoke perfume packaging is glossy plastic and the box features a tattoo-esque cursive font while ‘Street’ is matte concrete.
