    Ghosty sharp rose
    A dark, opaque, aqueous (kind of citrusy and ambery/peppery) rose for us. A victorian/aldehydic silent rose enveloped by a black capote. The pepper is notable, shadowy and vaguely "airy and hairy" at the beginning as well as the "gassy" and molecular/volatile influence produced by the aldehydes. There is a slightly pharmaceutical effect for a while in the ghosty air. This rose is sharp/juicy because of the tart fruits and citrus (grapefruit and lemon more than orange or mandarine, at least at the beginning), it is kind of..."irony/grassy" at once, it is namely at the same time classic (with an aldehydic vibe) and post-industrial as bursting electricity in the air. This misanthropic rose is in substance dusty/cedary with an initial powerful indolic vibe which turns out almost plastic, in a sort of distinctive "burnt wires-plastic" effect (a vibe which reminds me vaguely for a while Odeur 71 Comme des Garcons) after an electric short circuit, an ostensibly "synthetic type" of xerox-toner smell. The sparkling plasticity recedes a bit along the trip and you can detect a final sombre rose/ambergris combination a bit denser but still lemony (crisp), cedary and tea-like, vaguely a la Paco (by Paco Rabanne) in the dry down. I imagine the ghost of a rose in the middle of the fog, a solitary wanderer of the computers graveyards. Minimalistic, bare and linear in the final aroma. Really dark, saturnine and obscure in a fluidy way. Poor longevity on my skin, a pity.
    Pros: Aqueous, sharp and balanced
    Cons: Any"</p>

    Like another reviewer said, "Nothing dark here..." It is a blast of grapefruit and citrus. There is some rose lightly hiding with apple. Nice, sort of feminine, not for me

    There's nothing dark about this fragrance so I guess the name's supposed to be a joke.The notes say mandarin and petitgrain but all I get is GRAPEFRUIT!!! with a warm undertone of cedarwood. Very sporty-fresh and bright, might be refreshing for summer but it's not a "cool" scent - it's more of a warm citrus like some classic citrusy-spicy colognes. The citrus note is not very "classic" though - the, to my nose, distinct grapefruit makes me think of a dozen modern mainstream masculine fragrances. Well done, though, and doesn't smell of locker room but I don't particularly see a need for it on the market.
