    Secong Black Cashmere and Shiseido Basala, maybe also feminite du Bois by Shiseido. Also I would add Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche. Maybe old good Azzaro PH and Antaeus too.

    dark and heavy are not necessarily the same. Polo and Aramis are heavy fragrances to me. Vintage Tabarome and Le Labo Patchouli are both pretty dark. CdG Tea in the leaves series is very dark.

    Is this the original Karl Langerfeld cologne? If so, that is a classic.

    It came right after Lagerfeld Classic. Very rich Oriental, heavy on the rosewood. Wonderful, yes, but H-E-A-V-Y.

    I'm amazed noone's mentioned: Black Orchid by Tom Ford. Perhaps the darkest and heaviest fragrance I own.

    I thought more incense fragrances would be listed, L'Artisan's Passage d'Enfer or the rubber scents such as Bulgari Black or SMV's Nostalgia. Or the leathers such as Knize Ten which you need biceps to wear.

    I dismiss all the above as hardly dark. Sorry

    Heavy? Maybe.

    Villoresi's Vetiver is dark... hummm. So is Eucris, but Lutensie's Chene is dark like a moonless and starless night. And his Borneo too.. Oh God... you'll need to carry a torch as you delve into it.

    Edited to add Jaisalmer

    I would agree with Mazzolari Lui ( and for my 2 cents, its close cousin Sables). Fumidus by Profumum is a formidable fragrance. It's so heavy I am not sure if it's dark. I think it's dark.
