Dali Pour Homme, Salvador Dali (1987). Just read the first review here: https://www.parfumo.net/Perfumes/Salvador_Dali/Dali_pour_Homme_Eau_de_Toilette.
Antaeus is Peter Steele gothy.
Lalique Encre Noire, Encre Noire Sport (I don't like the Extreme version so I don't recommend it)
Zadig & Voltatire This is Him
Issey Miyake Noir Argent, Or Encens
I wouldn't describe them the way the OP has put it, but they got vetiver, incense or patchouli and are not your typical fresh or sweet designer fragrances
Unfortunately, more designers tend to be less expensive than most of the indie/niche stuff that we're listing here. That's not always true, of course. But the point is that designers want to appeal to as many people as possible so it's rare that a designer scent will go so out on a limb with excessive "goth-ness."
That being said, maybe Sixteen92's price range might be more palatable?
Thanks for the "Heads up" on Zadig & Voltatire "This is Him" and the Issey Miyake Fragrances. I was not at all familiar with current Issey Noir Argent or Or Encens PH. I must look for those Issey as I only have Issey Blue.
The "darker" Issey Miyake fragrances are really good.
I love Pulse of the Night and Or Encens, also enjoy Noir Ambré and Noir Argent.
They are completely different animals in comparison to the Issey Miyake "freshies" and I think that they are far better.
Recently there was a thread "if you like... you'll injoy..." where I mentioned them too: https://www.basenotes.net/threads/4...-enjoy/page2?p=5109393&viewfull=1#post5109393
Not that they smell similar to the other popular fragrances, they are very unique and criminally underrated (at least outside the fragrance community).
Jacomo de Jacomo
Jacomo de Jacomo
Interesting - as I found the current Jacomo de Jacomo quite smooth, warm and pleasant, comforting even.
Personally, I've yet to find a truly "spooky/haunting/goth/depressing" scent, which incidentally makes me think of unholy soil from Dracula's coffin or something, lol. Even Comme des Garcons Black - although kind of austere - is too "happy" (and sweet) to qualify.
