    Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme defines dark, deep, and mysterious. It's the polar opposite of today's popular ephemeral aquatics.

    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte

    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 ?

    Default Re: best DARK /DEEP/ MYSTERIOUS scent....

    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?
