    Default What's the darkest scent that you know? And with dark I mean SUPER-DARK!!!

    Since I am interested in perfumery I am on the search for the darkest, most evil and coldest perfume! I tried a lot of stuff that is considered dark like Encre Noire, Black Tourmaline, Norne, Fumidus, Messe de Minuit etc. etc., but all the perfumes were not even close to what I am looking for! Maybe such perfume doesn't even exist? The basenotes of real Oud come close to what I am looking for. Maybe some of you guys know a super-unknown insiders' tip that smells like a bone-filled dungeon in a medieval castle in the darkest night in the coldest winter!

    The perfume should not have even the tiniest hint of sweetness, it should be extremely dry and maybe smoky.

    One that immediately springs to mind is Villoresi Patchouli, It has been described by a previous reviewer as 'cave' and I think that is appropriate. Another which I have in my collection and fully endorse is Or Black by Pascal Morabito.

    Your description is rather Gothic, and for me one company springs to mind - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

    Omen and Nyarlahotep spring to mind, but the site is stuffed full of scents that would be right up your street.

    Montale Dark Aoud and Black Aoud with added concentration have little sweetness and are bone dry and make me feel like in smothering in feul. Way too dark and heavy.

    I find it strange how so few posters take the time to read the OP:

    Most things from Slumberhouse, surprised you were not impressed by Norne. Never smelled anything as dark.

    In the eerie/sinister department, you might want to check out
    Byredo M/Mink
    CB Black March
    L'Artisan Mchant Loup

    You might also be looking for something very heavy and uncompromising like
    Villoresi Vetiver
    Santa Maria Novella Peau d'Espagne
