    Putting aside associations and based on scent alone, I've always felt Horizon and Encre Noire had a "sad" feel to it.

    Dark Aoud, while not damp, makes me feel post-human.

    Vintage Ungaro III (only the vintage stuff though) has a very dark, cold, foreboding feel to it. Cuba Black by Cuba Paris has an empty, nothingness feeling to it as well.

    Penhaligon's Sartorial is like a distant memory interpretation of a classic fougere.

    Not a men's perfume, but L'heure Bleue gives me the blues . Also Channel Antaeus makes me somewhat depressed.

    Eau de Gentiane Blanche always passes me an image of freezing cold in my soul, a sadness that surpasses me.

    Bogart One Man Show sorta does it for me. I have now tried Narciso Rodriguez for Him, and don't consider it quite as gloomy as many say. OMS is worse, at least to me.

    Though I love patchouli in all its iterations (excepting those blends with too much vanilla), I tend not to wear any patch-dominant fragrances in rainy weather. There's just something about that weather/ingredient combo that numbs me emotionally.
