Devilish font

Hi

I'm working on a piece of packaging with a devilish slant. I have the font 'Helena' and was wondering if the typophiles out there could suggest something similar?

I purchased 'Aesthetique' but that was a little to decorative.

Any Suggestions welcome

Posted an image of Helena with some text thrown in....

To me Helena is more "cute little devil" as opposed to evil. Intended?

I am not certain what you mean by "packaging with a devilish slant." This could range from a cute Valentines' day devil to a heavy metal like Graveblade http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/typodermic/graveblade/ -- which is definitely an attention grabber and not too "decorative" in the swirly sense of Helena. Another option is a script like Excalibur http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/scholtz/excalibur-scf/ -- pointy in a casual way.
If you don't mind making letters, you could apply a motif like this http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-56239237/stock-vector-devil-icon.html?sr... to the initial letter of your logo from an uncomplicated "friendly" font of your choice and leave the rest unchanged.

Thanks
It's a whisky package called the devils punch bowl first two versions went big on a devil illustration. I want to go typographic for this one. Not cute Not heavy somewhere in between. tricky one to describe.

Still drawn to helena.
