    Default Looking for a brutal parfume for a man

    I'm looking for bitter rough brutal smell which revolts, scares and attract at the same time, but not vintage only.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Besides the obvious question "why", I'd go with:
    - Secretions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Oranges

    It evokes pretty much exactly what you asked for.

    Yatagan is pretty scary, (I've got some I don't know what to do with) but a more current mega-scent is ​Lutens-Ambre Sultan.

    Dior Leather Oud
    Dior Oud Ispahan

    They are both "revolting" on first sniff, but if you can survive that, they both turn into modern masterpieces. Both very strong and exceptionally long lasting. 12+ hours on skin, 24+ hours on clothes. The interesting thing I find about these two is that if you, the wearer, sniff where you sprayed it up close, the scent is pretty nasty and overpowering for many hours... however if you ignore it and just let the scent come your nostrils on its own, from a bit of distance, it's just amazing.

    Over spraying Tuscan Leather would do the trick. Great with small applications but brutal is the exact word I used in my notes when I used four. God help you if you used twice that.

    Scare and revolt there are a few - but the attractive part is more difficult. Secretions magnifique is notorious, but most people are only scared and revolted.

    A weird one that could attract some is Histoires de Parfums Petroleum, which smells like entering a dark, damp cave full of strange minerals.

    15 sprays of something could do as well. 15 sprays of Etat Libre d'Orange Rien perhaps?

    Come to think of it, Santa Maria Novella's Nostalgia might also be one. Motor oil, engine block and post coital bed sheet is what I got from it. (sorry for the image)

    A few sprays of Zafar by Xerjoff should do the job nicely.

    Only 2 come to mind I've ever smelled that just may check most of your criteria: Ajmal Musk Ghazelle - Grade AA and Brent Leonesio's - Untitled #8. Either are probably difficult to find. Imaginary Authors - Bull's Blood and Mazzolari - Lui, might work for you and probably easier to obtain.

    ^ Zafar's a good suggestion too.

    If you don't want to venture in oud-oils territories, Montecristo and Rien would be my picks. Ferme Tes Yeux by JAR is another option but get ready to shell out mega bucks.

    Athunis is a masculine smokey vetiver like a Ferrari is a car. It will choke you out.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
