Reviews of Dark Lord Ex Tenebris Lux

This is easily a flanker to Gucci Guilty Absolute for men, I see a clear connection.
To my nose the Gucci is better, the Kilian more like someone created it in their garage.
That said, if you want to smell unlike anyone else, and smell metallic mechanical and new age, this is it.

Acrid medicinal smoke. I'd rate it an interesting not-always-pleasant onetime ride if it were just 12 hours but the nasty base takes a couple of days to scrub out.

It's weird watching established luxury niche brands trying to reach out to fans of indie perfumes. Dark Lord contains a lot of the DNA often used by new upstart perfumers in a clear attempt to feel more cutting edge. There's the heavy reliance on smoky cade and natural cedar, as well as a Tauer-ade of green resins, and also the use of jasmine paired against dark woods to act as a sweetener. Dark Lord matches all of this up against an Encre Noir-inspired mix of vetiver and geranium.

As such, Dark Lord smells more like a Bruno Fazzolari or an Olympic Orchids than a Saks Fifth Avenue prestige perfume - not that there's anything wrong with that. Personally speaking, I find it a bit harsh and oddly unbalanced, like it has a few too many ingredients for its own good, so I'm voting neutral, but this has made for interesting sniffing.

Mix medicinal leather with the TdH Parfum and you get Dark Lord. After the opening you start to get the jasmine but it never overwhelms the leather.

Feels like a versatile fall/winter scent.

Has good projection and longevity.
