    Cool Re: Dark, Mysterious, Seductive, Hypnotic

    Well, anything from the Comme des Garcons series of Incense, specifically Zagorsk or Ouarzazate, seems to fit the bill.

    VdR seems to be all of the aforementioned adjectives, but not too dark. More poetic than dark. Same with Ungaro III.

    Gucci PH, M7, Body Kouros, Bulgari Black, Antaeus and Egoiste are good ideas as well.

    I feel that Guerlain Vetiver is a little dark and mysterious. Mitsouko too.

    fantasy scent:
    it would have to be something with a predominant incense note and vanilla honey lurking in the background

    incense, guaiac wood, sandalwood - for the dark feel
    sour cherry, bitter almond - for the hypnotic
    Honey, vanilla, amber - for the seductive
    honeysuckle, agar wood, precious woods,myrrh and violets - for the mysterious

    and last for the evil/demonic feel (even though I personally wouldn't) raw dark leather

    I think these qualify as dark, mysterious, and seductive:

    - No. 88 by Czech & Speake
    - Tabac Blond by Caron
    - Antaeus by Chanel
    - Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens
    - X by Clive Christian

    For ' Dark, Mysterious, Seductive, Hypnotic’. I'd vote for M7 but in my opinion that does not mean that it's even remotely 'borderline evil and demonic'... for that category I would only throw in Boss No. 1 (NOTE ALSO that Boss No. 1 is not! in any of the: Dark, Mysterious, Seductive, Hypnotic...categories… no, Boss No. 1 is only evil and purely demonic.

    Lots of good suggestions. Here's one that hasn't been mentioned yet:

    Jacomo de Jacomo.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Cool Re: Dark, Mysterious, Seductive, Hypnotic

    Oh, fragrances! I thought you were talking about me . . .

    Let's see:

    1. Antaeus

    And for the rest:

    Bulgari Black (Easier to get than say, MKK, so there's a bit of snobbery against it but YES!)
    Muscs Kublai Khan (Of course)
    Salvador Dali PH (Where did I put that sacrificial onyx dagger? Get edt strength though, the weak edc sucks)
    MpG's Santal Noble ( IF you add the adjective 'regal', as well)

    And I'm glad Steve mentioned Jacomo de Jacomo--not certain whether it would be Dracula or Van Helsing that would wear it but definitely for those cold, rainy days in the Transylvania forests . . .

    Cheers,

    Mario.

    My Antaeus can beat up your Armani.

    Davidoff's RELAX isn't that dark, but certainly is mysterious, seductive, hypnotic.
