You cant go past Yosh Sombre Negra eDP
Its patchouli with a heavy wood nuance
I like the Antaeus suggestion.
Also think Puredistance M has some of that vibe.
Patou pour Homme
Azzaro pour Homme

Etienne Aigner's Super Fragrance for Men couldn't fit this title better.
Van Cleef & Arpels pH
Salvador Dali pH
Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme defines dark, deep, and mysterious. It's the polar opposite of today's popular ephemeral aquatics.

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
M7 for sure
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Encre Noire is a given, but I'll also add Bvlgari pour Homme Soir. Transparent black tea. Lovely.
Nothing mysterious to Encre Noir, imo.

Etro - Messe De Minuit

Very dark, and gives me an uneasy vibe although I find it totally unique.
The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?
YSL M7, but only the original formulation. I think it's partly because of the real Mandrake Root, that's an incredient in it, i don't think it exists in any/many other fragrances.
Maybe I don't have the same sense of "dark" as many of you, but I don't find M7 to be dark...just delicious! Nonetheless try to find a vintage bottle of M7 and maybe you will find it dark and fitting.
Agree about Black Aoud, Encre Noire and even Black Orchid. How about Bvlgari Black too?
1. Amouage Epic man
2. Dior Leather Oud
3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
5. Amouage Opus VII
6. Byredo Bullion
7. Norma Kamali Incense
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
The darkest fragrance I've smelt was:
Messe de Minuit: sadly those assholes at Etro have fucked it up. Sorry for the profanity but they are indeed ginormous assholes.
Patou Pour Homme
Une Fleur de Cassie
I'd add MPG's Parfum d' Habit & Route du Vetiver to the list.
