Dark Naturalism is an aesthetic that mixes in the natural world, with its more darker elements to create an atmosphere of a naturalist mystery.
Dark Naturalism's visuals revolve around nature with a sense of obscure mystery. It interlocks with Dark Academia. Something like ghost and cryptid hunters, and mysterious forces in the woods. Handwritten threats with pressed or dried flowers, stained with a kiss of lipstick and sprayed with perfume or cologne; tied with a strip of ribbon, a blade of grass, or sealed with wax. Studying religious history and admiring its architecture, music and stories.
