Can I borrow this thread to ask for recs for my NaNoWriMo characters? I have a few in mind, but I'll start with the one who's giving me the toughest time.
That sounds interesting! I'd love to read your story when it's finished. I think Ice (Devoted ruthlessness. This is the scent of razors, cold metal, icicles, and her diamond-tipped claws: eucalyptus blossom, crystalline musk, white ginger, mint, and elemi) would be perfect for him. A lot of people describe it as a cool, pure but aggressive cologne, so... seems it would be a fit.
Other lighter scents from the GC that might fit him would be:
Death On A Pale Horse - Empty white musk and mint seeped with solemn lavender, doleful patchouli and vetiver, scythe-sharp yuzu and lime, with geranium bourbon, white sandalwood and calla lily.
Embalming Fluid - White musk, green tea, aloe and lemon.
Sea of Glass - A scent of inimitable purity, crystalline grace, and limitless light.
And then thematically I think of these, though they might be richer and warmer than you'd prefer:
The Bow & Crown of Conquest - Nobility and haughtiness befitting the Antichrist: sage, carnation and cedar with lavender, vanilla, white musk and leather.
Nephilim - Holy frankincense and hyssop in union with earthy fig, defiled by black patchouli and vetiver, with a chaotic infusion of lavender, cardamom, tamarind, rosemary, oakmoss and cypress.
Faustus - Truly an exercise in megalomania and self-gratification: frankincense and cinnamon, darkened by violet.
Pride - The scent of rabid hauteur: Moroccan rose and narcissus.
If you're willing to track down some LEs you might also want to try:
Black Ice - Lovely, dangerous, slick, and bitterly cold: chilly white sleet-like notes with a hint of vetiver, a breath of smoky asphalt, and winter wind.
Moon of Ice - Frost-crusted winter flowers, white pine, eucalyptus, and traditional lunar oils.
Ice Prince - As beautiful and cold as a December storm. Crystalline musk, winter lily, bergamot, plum, and frozen pine boughs.
ice Prince is technically a bath oil, but they've always worked well as scented moisturizers for me too... good luck with the story and finding a scent for your character!
