    L'Heure Bleue wears dark & gloomy on me. Beautiful, but brooding.

    They still make some fragrances that suit my tastes, so I don't need to worry about the black nail polish

    Deep in Earth relies on a geranium/rose otto/moss combination that does a good job of suggesting wooded lots, faded rose arrangements, and fresh, damp earth. I believe the same can be found in Knize Forest and Domenico Caraceni 1913, both of which seem "darker"

    Sheol: gladiola, stargazer lily, iris, heliotrope, copal, labdanum, and tonka. This is more suited to listening to Verdi's Requiem than New Order.

    I couldn't agree more, also L'heure Bleue to me is dark and melancholy

    Nothing, absolutely nothing beats the original Messe de Minuit EdC!

    I thought at first Etro Messe de Nuit was gothic until I sniffed L'antichambre Le Message Oublié. Deep dark incense brings to mind old gothic churches.

    Dude. This thread is from NINE years ago. I don't think you're getting that bottle of Kingdom...

    Salvador Dali Pour Homme. As dark, decadent and mysterious as it gets.

    I would definitely add Memoir Woman by Amouage - gorgeous and brooding and formidable.

    So many fragrances mentioned in this thread sound intriguing! In my wardrobe, the ones that best meet the dark description are vintage Weil Zibeline Huile de Bain, Anubis (Papillon), Encre Noire (Lalique), Magie Noire (Lancome), Bandit (Robert Piguet) and Avignon (Comme des Garcons). Several of these have already been mentioned, so +1 from me.
