The Dark Side is an extrait de parfum that comes in a 30ml size. The fragrance features oriental, woody, spicy, powdery, and incense notes, creating a mysterious, warmly dark, addictive, and seductive aroma. It is inspired by the Moroccan city of Marrakesh and the rich and mesmerizing effusion of its market and streets.

The fragrance's complex formula contains a blend of honey, spices, iris, violet, sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver, amber, styrax, incense, patchouli, and vanilla. It has a concentration of 25% and has great longevity, lasting an average of 24 hours.

The perfumer admits that they love woody warm sweet woody oriental fragrances, and The Dark Side is their attempt to create a scent in this category. The formula is very complex, made up of many components that they tried to mix in the smoothest way possible. The perfumer worked so much on the balance of so many ingredients that they forgot how it all started.

The fragrance's origin was in Marrakesh, one of the perfumer's favorite cities, where they bought many smelly bottles, including a deliciously fake oud oil. The perfumer created their own base inspired by this Moroccan fake oud, which they called "My Oud." Later, they integrated this base into The Dark Side project, adding it in due proportion to all the other ingredients. However, after making many variations during the following months while searching for further harmony, the perfumer forgot that the soul of "My Oud" was in it.

Only a fragrance lover's review made the perfumer remember their lovely fragrant memory from Marrakesh. If you really want to keep a secret, you just have to forget about it, like the perfumer did with their "My Oud" base.

The fragrance contains Alcohol Denat., Parfum, Aqua, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Eugenol, Geraniol, Citronellol, D-Limonene, Linalool, Benzyl Benzoate, Hydroxycitronellal, Citral, Benzyl Salicylate, Benzyl Alcohol, Anise Alcohol, Isoeugenol, and Benzyl Cinnamate.
