Jorge Chávez International and São Paulo-Guarulhos International are home to some of the most impactful Bad Boy activations to date. Here, customer interaction is a key focus through engaging retailtainment activities such as a lightning-shaped buzz wire game and innovative lighting technology.
The animations invite travelers to wake up their “inner Bad Boy” via a digital touch-screen feature, which ignites lightning bolt visuals on both the screen and flooring. Passengers can also play a digital game to find out if they are good or bad. To further immerse themselves in the Bad Boy universe via digital screens in the interior space, passers-by can note advertising ft.

Bad Boy, created by Quentin Bisch and Louise Turner, is an aromatic oriental scent that celebrates a new masculinity. The fragrance offers spicy top notes of bergamot and pepper, woody heart notes of sage and cedar wood, balanced by gourmand base notes of tonka bean and cocoa. Bad Boy’s lightning-shaped flacon in midnight blue takes key design elements from the Good Girl stiletto bottle.
