    I'm thinking Encre Noir ... It smells reminiscent of a campfire that's almost extinguished
    Current rotation:
    Polo Green(Warner version)
    Calvin(original)
    Dakar(prefer it to current drakkar noir)
    LPDO Vanille Persuasive
    Kenzo Jungle Home
    Mercedes Benz Private
    Terre d'Hermes EDT

    Something from SLUMBERHOUSE or ZOOLOGIST
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    La Couche du Diable by Serge Lutens seems fitting. Or maybe Laudano Nero by Tiziana Terenzi.

    Definitely could see the devil trying to pass off a bad clone. In that vein, and as a fan of Goethe’s Faust (my avatar is Goethe’s sketch of the Erdgeist), I’d say Xerjoff - Mefisto. And to paraphrase Goethe - “du gleichst den Duft, den du begreifst!” It would have to be a cheap Aventus clone!
    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    I've heard Fahrenheit Absolute described as the devil's juice. I'd personally go with Lush Lord of Goathorn.

    Either something old-school, like 80's brute/macho/masculine - OR something modern and sleek (OR a classy fragrance like Chanel Pour Monsieur).

    So I'm gonna go with...
    Kouros, Chanel Pour Monsieur, and Aventus Cologne.

    Either

    a. Rien Intense Incense - so bad

    or

    b. As Hugo Chavez made note at the UN, El Diablo aka ‘Dubya’ smells like Sulphur.

    I’m going to have to agree with Chavez and go with b. Hedor Dubya Sulphur Intenso.
