    SL Boxeuses is like feminite de bois but with leather instead of woods.
    Also singling out Knize Ten (cherry and leather).

    Daim Blond is the opposite of dark.

    I would add Slumberhouse Sadanne, DK Black Cashmere, Rubini Fundamental, Forbes of Forbes, Mark Birley Charles Street, Dunhill Custom, Goti Smoke, GS02 Biehl, Jil Sander Background, House of Matriarch Forbidden, Divin Enfant by ELdO, Escada Magnetism for Men, Le Tabac by L'antichambre, probably some crap Xerjoff, maybe Richard James Savile Row and also maybe Furyo by Bogart although it's quite a stretch.

    Dhan Al Oudh Al Nokhba by Rasasi

    Top notes are spicy notes and agarwood (oud);
    Middle notes are woody notes, spun sugar and big strawberry;
    Base notes are agarwood (oud) and musk.

    Can get it for a song.

    Yes for me it has a dark smoky, ashy vibe for sure, blended with a brighter fruity one.

    J. Malone - Pomegranate Noire. That's if I've interpreted 'dark' correctly.

    Deep Night by Ghost. It's an ethereal vanilla-apricot dream. Deepest Night is also quite good, if you can find it. Call me a fool, but I also really like the mango-pepper vibe in Polo Double Black, even if it's a pale recreation of l'Eau du Navigateur or Yohji Homme and lasts less than two hours. Still smells nice. I had a good laugh at Luca Turin's assessment, though.
