Narcisco Rodriguez Musc. That should be stanky enough.
I love stanky fragrance, can you help sugest a few for me to sample... I enjoy mkk, kouros, and ambre sultan... I love fragrance that are spicy, different, and just straight out skanky like mkk... any suggestions would be much appreciated....
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui
"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
Narcisco Rodriguez Musc. That should be stanky enough.
I never had any "stink" from Ambre Sultan. I always think of AS as a beautiful smell rather than a stinker!

Eau d'Hermes is the benchmark here in my view. In my perennial top 5. Declaration might also be worth a shot.
Bond Harrods Oud
Xerjoff Zafar - The smell of cheese in a barnyard, real Oud in all its skanky glory.lol
I second Kurkdjian APLS, warm spicy musky, animalic, yet more wearable than MKK. Rien and Dzing! are animalic in the sense of leather; Rien can be truly dangerous in large doses. For spicy dirtyness, I also second Eau d'hermes, a cumin bomb, so if cumin smells sweaty to you, that's it.
The dirtiest I can think of however is the opening of Oud 27, a powerful dirty musk (later, oud 27 becomes more woody).
If you like spices and skank you MUST try Serge Noire. You'll be in skanky burnt spice heaven! (Well, that may be an odd use of "heaven" but there you have it!
Moderately stanky, but still worth a try: Mouchoir de Monsieur, Marbert Homme, even Givenchy Gentleman, all three being "reasonably dirty" to qualify.
Another vote for Musc Tonkin
Dirty old wet flannel...
And if you meant a fragrance that one purchases, Grey Flannel.
I'd PAY to see you trying to walk around after 2 or 3 sprays of LAPIDUS! ROTFLMAO
My Starting Lineup: MI, Pure Malt, GIT, LIDGE, Prada Amber Homme, L'Nuit, Royal Oud, Bois du Portugal, Gucci II, Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille, Midnight In Paris, Eau Sauvage Parfum, Pure Havane, DHI, Costume National 21, Virgin Island Water. Signature Scent: Aventus
Etat Libre d'Orange's Rien and Montale's Oud Cuir d'Arabie.
+1 Absolue Pour Le Soir
I also recommend Ambre Russe by Parfum D'Empire
December Rotation: Individuel: 1899 Hemingway: Pure Malt: Play Intense: Eau Duelle: Fille en Aiguilles: Eau des Baux: Taste of Fragrance: Padparadscha: Ambre Sultan: Carbon: Hydrogen: Straight to Heaven: Bentley Intense: Cuir Ottoman: Dior Homme Intense: Gaiac
Kouros is the worst stinking scent I've smelled.
Byredo M/mink, very dirty but completely unwearable for me. Perhaps Jicky?
Nasomatto - Black Afgano
derrick black and trussardi uomo
I'd also disagree about Black Afgano being a skanky scent, the best way to describe it is as a smoky "green" scent.
1. Smell Bent Commando EDT
2. Byredo M/Mink
3. Bal de Versailles EDC
TOP 12 - Neil Morris Takashimaya, Creed Aventus, Creed Millesime Imperial, Xerjoff Nio, Xerjoff 1861, Xerjoff Modoc, Opus Oils Mother, Bond No.9 Harrods Oud, Amouage Interlude Man, YSL Opium Pour Homme EDP, Slumberhouse Jeke & Puredistance M
I may be alone, but I find that Parfums de Nicolai's New York has a certain dirtiness to it. The kind that keeps drawing you back. I think the French call it "beautiful dirt."
Absolue pour le Soir, Jicky and Cuir d' Arabie
My current top ten:
1. Tobacco Vanille
2. Spice and Wood
3. 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
4. Musc Ravageur
5. Noir De Noir
6. Plum Japonais
8. Dior Homme Intense
9. L'air Du Desert Marocain
10. Ambre 114
Jicky Parfum, Al Ouhd, Absolu Pour le Soir, Leather Oud .. all worth checking out.
Dior Leather Oud
l'Artisan Al Oudh
If you are a fan of Kouros, then I highly recommend Derrick by Orlane. It has a similar sort of "locker room" vibe as Kouros. And it is very inexpensive, to boot.
On the niche end, M/Mink by Byredo, Al Oudh by L'Artisan, Dzing! by L'Artisan, Harrods Oud by Bond No. 9, Oud Cuir d'Arabie by Montale, and Oud 27 by Le Labo are all great choices.
Current top 10:
1. L'Artisan Dzing!
2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
4. L'Artisan Al Oudh
5. Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory
6. Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond
7. Andy Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
8. Guerlain Derby
9. Geo F Trumper Eucris
10. Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe
here are some
Bal A Versailles (vintage parfum or vintage EDC)
Oud Caravan by Abdes Salaam Attar Profumo
Ferme Tes Yeux
Absolue Pour Le Soir
Lisa Kirk's Revolution
Ambra Di Luna
Oud Cuir D'Arabie

Une Fleur De Cassie
Cumming by Alan Cumming or, alternatively 2nd Cumming by CBIHP

So much of it's drydown actually has an uncanny resemblance to various deer scent, from 'deer gland secreations' used by hunters. So if you want to go OG skank, buy that...lol.

+1 Ungaro II
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
Les Parfums de Cuir
Just dripping with dead animal, tar, and some barnyard accords for your nasal pleasure!
Mokhalat Malaki by Swiss Arabian, if you can survive the skankiness
Dior Leather Oud
L'artisan al oudh
And another vote for Musc Tonkin as a very wearable skank. Serge Noir yeah Skanky - but as much as I love SL frags - that one's just nasty!
I've never tried it, but most reviews say Secretions Magnifique is nasty.
I was going to suggest Kouros, but it looks like you already enjoy smelling like urinals - LOL. Jicky has a very fecal-smelling civet note that should be skanky enough and our friend Michael Storer has one call Winter Star that has what many wearers describe as a skanky, I'm-feelin'-a-bit-nasty musky not to it. Winter Star is one of my favorite fragrances that I've owned and/sampled because it lasts forever, is very unique, and is priced well for a niche EDP that you have to barely "spittle" onto your skin. Seriously, I avoid even putting one full spray on or it is too strong - I spittle a little here a little there and I'm good for the day. Good stuff indeed.
For swap or sale: Vintage Ungaro III, Pi EDP, Mitsouko EDP, Vintage Mitsouko EDC, & others. PM me.
My favorites are
MFK Absolue pour le Soir
PdE Musc Tonkin
These are both worth trying for sure.
Miller Harris L'air de rien
Cuir de Lancome
Bal a Versailles
Surely Miller Harris L'air de rien and Dzing aren't stanky. Both are very mild.. but have character.
Imaginary Authors - Bull's Blood
Try Knize Ten Knize
If you can't get your stank on with half a dozen squirts of Xeryus Rouge, something is wrong.
+1 for Bal A Versailles, Rochas Moustache, Salvador Dali Pour Homme, Dzing!, and I'll add L'Anarchiste which I didn't see listed yet. Good luck, let us know what you decide to try and what you like.

I had a sample vial of SM in a Tupperware container with a bunch of other samples, somehow it shattered (I think due in large part to its own putrid stench lol), I ended up having to throw everything out, that metallic stink just wouldn't go away.
Dior's leather Oud and Absoulte pour le soir. And I love them both!
Take your skanky ass to Luckyscent and get Mazzolari Lui.
Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
