Ignis by Omar Sharif for me has that vibe.
Some fragrances may be described as somehow sinister.
Which fragrances can in your opinion said to have a "sinister" vibe?
I have to say that personally i find this vibe in Ungaro III , though i like it very much as a fragrance.
Would be nice to hear your opinions.
Ignis by Omar Sharif for me has that vibe.
Agree with Ungaro III, that fragrance feels like a killer or something, unpleasant, and creepy.
Trumpers Eucris to me has that dark sinister vibe.
One Man Show
Did someone go to the cinema recently?
Epic Man gives me that kind of vibe.
Salvador Dali PH- but almost sinister in a strangely alluring way
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Interesting! I must smell at least Ungaro I, Leonard ph. These i have considered for other reasons before as well. Ignis sounds like an interesting one too, and Eucris by Trumpers.
agree about Ungaro I and Dali pH. would add Kinski
Encre Noir doesn't frighten me, but it has a dark moody vibe to it. Narciso Rodrigez, to me, is more melancholic than sinister. But its got a very brooding, dark feel, none-the-less. Van Cleef and Arpels ph goes on sinister. But by the death its gotten way too soapy to maintain the vibe. Unless you can get a Dexter cleaning up afterwards thing going on.
+1 Eucris, which certainly has a sinister aspect, rotten vegetation in a dark forest.
I would also add Petroleum by Histoires de Parfums: it smells like entering a damp, humid, dark cave.
"Sinister" might be a stretch but Halloween/dark vibe can be found with Narciso Rodriguez for him, Montale Dark Aoud, Amouage Memoir Man and Lalique Encre Noire.

Montale Black Musk has a sinister feel to it.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has been specializing in making scary and occult seeming fragrances for years now. They seem to be going strong still. I've never felt compelled to try them. Looks gimmicky to me. I could be wrong. I have been before.
I have the Dali ph and Leonard pour homme which are sillage monsters and a little goes a long way but they seem quite civilized to me.
If you're interested in voodoo fragrance potions try: New Orleans Perfume dot com
I'm not a customer but I have the bookmark, it's nigh on Halloween and I'm in a sharing mood.
Datura or Moonflower is quite sinister if ingested and so Serge Lutens offers Datura Noir... Scary
and of course Poison anyone?

Kolnisch Juchten with its creosote aspect.
Passage d'Enfer - not just because of its name but because of the indolic, decaying lily aspect that conjures up the sensation of an undead, vampiric state.
Tubereuse Criminelle worn on a woman would seem sinister to me because of the cold mentholated quality combined with the overripe tuberose. I would feel that sinister vibe from her or really turned on. Or both. Hopefully both.
Fahrenheit Absolut has a sinister vibe to it, very dark peppery...great fragrance though
Encre Noire. I gave my roommate a sample vial because he likes vetiver and his reaction upon first sniff was, "I don't think I could trust someone who wears this fragrance. It smells like something an arsonist would wear."
Czech & Speake No. 88.
Especially the vintage juice.
This stuff screams creepiness.

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
Now it's been mentioned - Dior Leather Oud has that effect on me too.
I also get a sinister vibe from a few of the Slumberhouse fragrances.
Or Black by Pascal Morabito
Salvador Dali pour Homme by Salvador Dali
I should say ...Sarin
Musc by Narciso Rodriguez!
Personally, I find Habit Rouge rather sinister. The collision of vanilla with lemon makes me think of objects being thrown around a room by a poltergeist.
Montale Dark Aoud is the most sinister smelling thing to me.
Fahrenheit Absolute for me. It's the myrrh and oud, and the generally dark feeling it gives.
