    Hmmm maybe something like Narciso Rodriguez for Him. It's dark and melancholy, but the musk kind of envelopes you in its comfort.

    There was a thread a while back on dark fragrances, you might wanna check that out.

    Otherwise, I'd recommend something clean, crisp and positive to counter the darkness. Like say, Mugler Cologne, or Lumiere Noire.

    Divin'Enfant by ELdO seems to capture the transition that takes place in the first minute of the song.

    I have no clue what existing fragrance REALLY captures either. I wanted to say "What We Do In Paris Is Secret" by A Lab on Fire, but that always struck me as very dieselpunk and somewhat historical in its feel, even though the petroleum elements are very urban. It's also not cold enough. There is a warmth and sexiness underneath that doesn't quite match.

    I think it would be a great fragrance project to come up with a fragrance that matched the song and/or the image very closely, because it would be very cutting-edge in the scent world, IMO. Cool and black.

    I did smell something once by Loc Dong - an unpublished project - called the Scent of Absence, which was a screamingly loud black ink fragrance - that has some of the elements you need here. It was black and urban in some ways, but in other ways not right. Yes - Loc Dong of IFF could create the scent you seek. He's extremely artistic and edgy, and can do dark things. Neil Morris could, too, but he generally doesn't do subjects like this. He prefers brighter subjects. CÚcile Zarokian could also do this, IMO.

    If you want three fragrances that don't REALLY fit - because they're too good and too normal and too enjoyable by most people - but they still have some coolness, blackness, and urban character to them, then these are potentially interesting:

    YSL La Nuit de L'Homme
    Ferragamo Pour Homme Black
    Chanel Coco Noir

    All three of these have a certain degree of coolness and blackness to them.

    I have not smelled the new CdG Black, but maybe that is good for this. Francesco could answer that. There may be other CDG incense scents that work, too. CdG would be a good place to find something here, perhaps. Or the new nu-be scents.
