Kingdom and Messe de Minuit are cousins in my collection, but, for me, Messe de Minuit is the tower when all the demons are asleep.

(It's actually my preferred fragrance for when I see a massage therapist.)
I have a friend who also wears Kingdom. She calls it "Death."
Yatagan can be good, but, on me, it wears thin and earthy, sort of headshoppy. Test it first. The dark animal fire doesn't come through.
Try Chanel's Cuir de Russie
, actually. It's got teeth. On a woman, it has potential to be b*tchy. On a dude, it could definitely be, "I'm-a cut you."
