    For me cardamom and cumin are very sexy in right amount and in the right composition.
    Eg. Guerlain Songe d'Une Bois d'Ete/Bois Mysterieux
    Here, with a little bit of indolic vibe, is awesome.
    I loooooove it, but it's not very popular here.

    Or musky floral:
    Eg. Kiehl's Original Musk - I adore that dirtiness from the begining.
    Or Amouage Gold.

    Issey Miyake Pulse of the Night

    It has a sharp pepper opening which dries down with incense to a patchouli/vetiver heart and a fantastic smelling sweet tonka bean (not like in any other designer fragrance!) in the base.
    And women seem to love it!

    This one :

    Don't be put off by gender labels. It's dark, dirty and can be worn by men.

    Well, indole, cassis, civet and musk.
    You made me curious.
    Is the current version also dirty?

    David, which fragrance from this nose? Fragrantica shows only 2 for men, so if it's marketed for women, please name it...

    The first fragrance is known simply as "Jean-Louis Scherrer." That's the one David is talking about. We're synching what I believe is a current parfum de toilette concentration today in the Vintage Sample Swap thread—you might want to check there for comments.

    Chanel Egoiste comes to mind. I'm sniffing the vintage stuff right now and it's stellar. It has an aura about it that's meditative and mysterious.

    Definitely +1 on Musc Ravageur. Other similar scents (with or without cinnamon) might include CK Obsession and Villoresi's Spezie.

    There's also a couple from MFK that I quite think of as quite alluring: Lumiere Noir and Amyris Homme (EdT or the new Extrait).

    Default Re: Looking for something that's sexy in a mysterious way

    I would say Nasomatto Pardon, with its combination of woods (exquisite oud and sandalwood) and chocolate, a very seductive and sophisticated scent for sure. Its versatility is a bit limited though (only cold wheather and formal occasions).

    I would also recommend Initio Rehab which has similarities to other spicy tobacco scents considered sexy such as Spicebomb original/extreme, and Bvlgari MIB, but Rehan is better blended and of higher quality in general.

    I second the TF Noir Anthracite and the Tobacco Oud recommendations. Also throwing Givenchy Gentlemen Absolute in there as well.

    Another +1 for TF Noir Anthracite. Adding Gucci Pour Homme II to the list.
