The kind of scent you wear says a lot about you, and even more about who you want to be. Are you a trailblazing explorer wafting of anise Fuel for Life, a Loverdose seductress or a leather-scented man of the Only the Brave world? Wherever you fall, the perfume will only take you so far. We've worked with Diesel to help guide you to a better self, bringing together the events, products and experiences to rule your world.

Knowing what you want comes from seeing the best and newest of what's out there—this is your chance.

David Bowie Is

The Victoria & Albert Museum merges rock, pop culture and fine art with "David Bowie is," an exhibition dedicated to the era-defining figure. The Only the Brave Man can take a page from Bowie's book when it comes to breaking the rules and staying strong. Running through 11 August 2013, the show curates 300 objects, from hand-written lyrics to stage costumes, instruments to album artwork. Whether you're a hardcore fan from the glam rock era or just really liked "Labyrinth," the exhibition promises to be a brilliant ode to all things Bowie.

Started in 1996, Paris Photo has become the premier event for the art world's most contemporary medium. Going from the painfully cool French capital to sunny SoCal for the first time—and thus making its US debut—the show hits LA in April. Mark your calendar and inject some culture in your life that's accessible but no less badass.

Wilderness Collective

If you're driven to get outside, but require a certain level of style be attached to the endeavor, look no further than Wilderness Collective. Their guided travel tours across North America bring together men with that energy to climb Mt. Baker, pack into the Eastern Sierras, sail the Channel Islands and more. Even if you can't make it on one of the tours yourself, you can at least fuel your wanderlust by following their journal.

ICON Bronco

Anyone can flex their muscles by showing off some flashy little sports car, but those above the fray should look at something more subtle. Think of ICON's resurrected Ford Broncos as the ultimate vehicles for leaving the map at home when Fuel for Life is all you need. Our CH Video shows the process by which founder Jonathan Ward and his crew resurrect 1970s off-road vehicles into contemporary custom beasts ready for anything.
