Most elegant, sexy, spicy, warm perfume recommendations?

I've been looking for the perfect sexy mysterious perfume.

I'm getting tired of always wearing my Black Opium perfume.

Woody scents are okay as well!

@beautyxamayaa Not sure where I got the dark from. Also La Vie est Belle Elixir tjis has some oud in it but not too much. I don't get bandaids oud from it. Myrurgia Maya I think is moderately spicy amber. Not too expensive but lasts all day on me. Ellis Brooklyn Raven I think is very spicy and ambery but more dry heat to my nose than Maya which comes off as more liquid heat to me. Lasts at least 6 hours on my skin, much longer on my clothes.

@beautyxamayaa Seems I never fail to recommend Tom Ford's Black Opium. It's very deep and dark. The EDP is a favorite and the EDT is swiftly becoming a favorite. Both last all day for me on skin or clothes.If you don't like super strong, sock you in the face perfumes I would caution you on getting the parfum version of Black Orchid in the gold bottle. It's strong but lasts maybe four hours when I use it. 

Kilian Black Phantom is dark water coffee roast and is a bit mysterious. It was targeted for men but I find it unisex. It is long lasting.

I love warm, spicy perfumes.
