    Default Mysteriously dark fragrance?

    I saw a small article about "dark fragrance" (for women) on Bois de Jasmin website. That was so interesting that I've been wondering what would be a male-cologne equivalent of these "dark frangrances " for women. I understand we once had a thread pertaining to "dark, cryptic, gothic", but what I'm interested in is more mysteriosly, sensually dark, as opposed to creepy or religously frankinsency dark like Messet de Menuit, Avignon, and Passage d'Enfer. And not full-of-pepper dark like Piper Nigrum and Isfahan, or full-throttle-masculine-with-leather-and-tabac dark like Polo Green. And also, not name-or-bottle-only dark like Polo Black, either. More like what Poison Pour Homme would smell like if it existed, or something with that kind of nuance. If there's such category "mysteriously dark for men", which ones do you think sould be included? Anteus? Ungaro III? No.88?Anything else? *:

    The first one that came to my mind is Mazzolari Lui.

    Not sure where to place it but consider Horizon (Guy Laroche),
    Also Jacomo de Jacomo (definitely "full-throttle" leather though).
    Xeryus or Xeryus Rouge???

    L'Homme Sage. It's remarkable! Frag for the silent intellectual who believes that his allure is most effective by not talking at all. It's dark, but what lurks beneath is this tenderness that you swear it looks right into your soul. Don't wear this if you're afraid of being a bit vulnerable.

    This is technically a woman's frag, but I remember a b*noter commented that he liked it not too terribly long ago (can't rememeber who though). I concur, I think a guy could get away w/ wearing this because it's not sweet or flowery or really overly feminine. I'm actually gonna get some soon.

    - Ungaro III (the dry down mainly).

    - Oscar Pour Homme (classic mature darkness imo.. sort of your elderly dracula scent).

    - Zino Davidoff (another classic mature scent.. a woodsy darkness.. perhaps suitable for a cave dwelling beast).

    - DK Men (great scent, and as one reviewer stated 'a darth vader' like fragrance. pure sinister style to this one.. mysterious indeed).
