    Default Recommendations for a dark, heavy, exotic winter fragrance. (non gourmand)

    Something like ... Aedes De Venustas perhaps or middle eastern spices or well you guys tell me. Something exotic and heavy and dark.

    Trumpers Eucris is pretty dark and heavy. May be a bit old school for you though.

    I think Ambre Sultan kind of fits the bill too.

    Ungaro III comes to mind, although it might not be heavy enough for you.

    Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire is real fun and a masterpiece. I wouldn't even consider wearing it in summer.

    Serge Noir is indeed dark but imo it wears light...rather camphoraceous.

    +1 on Black Aoud

    Yatagan, which is the opposite of what I should be sitting here spritzing as I write this given the fact that it's 85 degrees and very humid outside. (But I'm spritzing it anyway, because I love it.)

    Serge Noire isn't exotic for me, but dark for sure.
    You should find one corresponding into the SL line.

    Lauder for Men is just about the darkest, most exotic fragrance I can think of.

    M7 but it's a little sweet. If you want something dark and heavy middle easterns are the way to go, if you're no very familiar with them Montale's are a safe route.

    Antaeus for sure. Non-gourmand, dark and rather complex.
