The only thing I can think of is Annick Goutal Eau du Fier.
Thread: Bitter Bulgari black
I wish Bulgari Black was bitter with no sweetness at all.
Is there any designer´s fragrance out there that projects the same gasoline, rubber notes but with no sweet in it?
I find the rubber note fantastic, really well done. I would like to smell something very industrial and metallic, with the rubber note of course. Maybe to make it a little pretty some dark chocolate or raw leather, not clean and delicate leather but used and old leather, thick as well.
Am I asking for an impossible?
You sir, need to smell Patchouli 24 by Le Labo. I think it's exactly what you're looking for. Same perfumer as Bulgari Black also (Menardo).

thanks both, sound like I really need to try them , interesting and controversial reviews :-)
Is it rubber or is it the tea notes that smell similar. The rubbery tea scent I'd suggest checking is Annik Goutal's Duel.
Le Labo is a very interesting concept. Like experimental perfumerie, I will give it a good thought
Interesting idea about Black, although I'm not a big fan of sweet and I do think it's important to the composition here. Makes it edgy rather than unpleasant. Still, I'd like to try your reformulation.
Bah. BB disintegrates instantaneously on contact with my skin. Too bad, I think I'd like it otherwise.
