Thread: Cold, calculating and menacing
Which cologne best portrays a cold, calculating, and almost menacing demeanor? I could see having some fun with a scent like that.
Maybe Encre Noire? Or Iris Silver Mist
Easily Malle's GÉRANIUM POUR MONSIEUR.
Clinique Happy initially comes to mind
Joop - Night Flight.
A job for Sung Homme, imo.
I second Iris Silver Mist over the top, rooty iris.
But also Chanel's Cristalle icy queen.
Hmm, try the many many different fragrances offered from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.
For some reason, I think black aoud. It's dark and enticing, like the rose itself.
Bas de Soie
I think of Jacomo de Jacomo or the old (1983) Trussardi Uomo as having this kind of vibe.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Wanted: YSL Nu EdP
Fahrenheit 32 lolllllllllllllllllll
Like being run through with a blade of cold steel...
Rive Gauche, especially if the weather is cool/not-swelteringly-hot
An alternate could be Eau de Gentiane Blanche, but it's on the lighter side.
How about just a cold, calculating menace?
Black Aoud- a scent for dark adventures not to be spoken of in daylight.
bois du portugal!!!

I cannot believe that I am supplying this answer to a thread, but here goes....
It's a little weak in the menacing category, but it has cold and calculating down.
The Guide calls Chanel No. 19 "heartless."
"...her fragrance all in my keeping; softly she comes in the night." Lyrics, Gordon Lightfoot, "Softly."
IMO, no fragrance does "menacing", cold and intimidating as well as
VAN CLEEF & ARPELS POUR HOMME

Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.
