Reviews of Dark

Effectively dark and "clubby".

One of those dark for real. At the beginning i'd have sworn to detect saffron and licorice flanked by aromatic notes and flowers. Actually i find a classic fougere spark with geranium, the couple bergamot/lavender, a dominant vetiver, all followed by woodsy/resinous elements (resins of pine), floral notes and amber/vanilla. The note of fruity (plums, red berries?) blackcurrant overdarkens the aroma since the first moments and i find it slightly spicy/dusty, lemony and floral. The dry down (which vaguely conjures me the Enrico Coveri Pour Homme classic dry down) is full of oakmoss being a really musky/sultry floral-spicy type of oriental vetiver. Synthetic and heavy for sure but i appreciate the notes association

Pros: Dark resinous oakmoss, floral notes and vetiver.
Cons: Sultry in a synthetic (for some a bit too much) way."

Upon first application you get, to my nose, a very strong liquorice-like aroma. This tends to last 3-4 hours before it then settles down into a very pleasant, sweet, but musky kind of smell. The initial blast can be quite off-putting, but if you're prepared to persevere with it the end results are worth it. Definitely a love or hate fragrance though so be sure to try for yourself before you buy.

the review of evilrix is spot on. this smells like burned chocolate from the very beginning to the very end (which is around 4-5 hours), extremely sweet and at the same time extremely unpleasent, no idea why anyone would want to smell like this.

Pleasant but very boring and not distinctive in slightest. Just a smooth, simple and warm semi-sweet scent with dominating amber, musk and vanilla tones. Smells kind of cheap and one dimensional. Didn’t last well on my skin.

The bottle I’ve seen and did hold in my hands was a shamefully bad in quality with very crude and unfinished details to it. It really looked like a total screw up. Not sure if it was a problem with only that one single bottle or not….

Notes :

Top : Bergamot, Neroli, Blackcurrant, Juniper, Dill, Lavender
Heart : Oak moss, Fir Balsam, Jasmin, Geranium
Base : Vetiver, Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Amber

A pleasant ambery woody oriental scent.
It starts off very strongly, but then quickly settles down to something a more subtle.
I liked it a lot more than the original Police scent, which was next to it when I was testing before buying.

Their site describes it as follows

"Its top notes have the bright, fresh, Mediterranean tones of bergamot and lavender, underpinned by the dark, spicy tones of juniper and blackcurrant.
Its body resonates with the flowery notes of geranium and jasmine, mingled with the woody tones of fir resin and oak moss.
Its base notes consist of the warm tones of sandalwood, vanilla and amber, enlivened by the crispness of vetiver.
An oriental blend sparked by outdoorsy aromatics mingling harmoniously with rare woods, backed up by a long-lasting drydown based on vanilla and musk. "

Without doubt this is the worse fragrance I have ever smelt. It's so sickly it actually made me want to vomit. I brought this as an impulse buy from a bargin bin. Oh dear, what a mistake. Smell this fragrance at your peril.
