    Question What are some good Exotic/ Gothic scents??

    I'm looking for scents that smell very heady, fiery and "gothic" Like incense, lilies, dragons blood, perfumes that you take one whiff of and know right away that it's a dark, exotic, engaging scent, yet not TOO smokey or patchouli-ey.

    Any recommendations??

    PS--- Can chicks get away with wearing that "Monk" cologne??

    Have you tried testing "the lab's" oils?

    They are supossed to be really good, plus you know the gothic feel begins with the kick-ass web site, hehehehe.
    I sugesst you try a few imps, see what you like, plus, oils can be used as many other things than just perfume, ney?
    Any way, if I had all the money in the world, i'd try everything from the lab!

    PS--- Can chicks get away with wearing that "Monk" cologne??
    Hahahaha! I've been wondering the exact same thing!

    LOL @ and with JoeJoe81.

    Monk is dry, insency and cold, perhaps too dry for me to become a favorite. I did not smell any dragon blood or lilies in it, although the longevity of this scent is amazing. Need to experiment with layering Monk with a drop of warm, lush florals.

    Do you like leather? Bandit or Cabochard really kick.

    I think Frankincense - Myrrh - Rose Maroc by Regina Harris might qualify. You can get sample from LuckyScent.

    Fracas is the only floral that I find Gothic. The exotic tuberose/gardenia demands black clothes.

    Patchouli is a gothic cliché but when it's blended like in Dioressence it becomes much more special. A green labdanum start, spicy clove and patchouli. For a skin-like smell.

    Bois d'Armenie just came out at the Guerlain store in Paris, and Bois de Jasmine just gave it a very good review. Sounds like a possibility that's not over-the-top.

    I'd have to agree that "gothic" would be a great descriptor for Fracas. You really have to at least give this one a try.

    Half of my buyers of MONK are women. Someone mentioned that it is "dry"... It's the first time I've ever heard it described that way... It is actually very rich with amber, musk, frankincense, lindenblossom, civet, tabac and yes, cocoa. I highly recommend that you try it for a gothic feel. Just ask me per PM and I will send you a sample and you can decide for yourself...
