    I would suggest Bogart Pour Homme a blend of dark tobacco - spice - on sweet amber / vanilla.

    I'll also throw in Givenchy Gentleman as something that might be up your alley. It's a fairly dark tobacco scent. I understand that it has been reformulated--I last wore it about 10 years ago. I was about 25, and it was a bit "dark" for me at the time. Not sure when the reformulation may have occurred, nor how it may have changed.

    Agree, they sure match his outfit.

    M7. You may have to wait 2.5 hours, through cherries and Band-Aids to get to the oud wood, vanillic, thick sillage, but it's worth it.

    You might want to try Histoires de Parfums 1740 and Idole by Lubin while you're on the prowl.

    +1 Epic Man, Black Aoud, Serge Noire and from the look of it Back to Black is the one I need to check out.

    For that dark, priestly aura, try Commes des Garçons Avignon or Gucci pour Homme. I also second Amouage Epic Man. Rose can also be very dark. If you can get your hands on a bottle of Alain Delon Iquitos you will be getting a nice, dark, gothic vibe.

    Another one you might want to try is Jungle by Kenzo, it's very similar smell wise to M7, BUT it's slightly more sweeter and spicier then M7 (also own and smells great), but M7 has more of a medicinal woody incense type of feel.

    Also Armani Attidue is AWESOME, longevity does kinda suck, but it smells smokey. So maybe Armani Attitude (intense/extreme?)

    l'Occitane Vetyver: vetiver and nutmeg (not the darkest vetiver though)
    Caron l'Anarchiste: cedar and orange peel (more "edgy" than "dark")
    Puig Quorum
    Domenico Caraceni 1913

    Knize Forest - not a lot sillage, but nothing dry about this one


    Personally, I find Diptyque's L'Ombre Dans L'Eau to be a darker rose than C&S 88, but it's more of a cool early morning than a late evening darkness.

    Others that might be fun to try: Zagorsk (CdG), Deep In Earth (BPAL), Bandit (Piguet), l'Heure Bleue (Guerlain)

    I agree with all of the other guys who recommended Chanel's Antaeus.

    I'm glad Salvador Dali pour Homme and Chanel Antaeus are well represented here.
    I'd also like to add Parfum d'Habit by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    ....The fragrances in your wardrobe are all youthful/cheery/sweet and playful fragrances. Lots of gourmand and foody ones as well. Don't get me wrong, they are good scents. But I would not say they are dark at all
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    ^ Came here to say that.

    Also, Eucris. (Both have a wonderful dark black currant note.)
