Darkening Waxes

Anyone able to list some waxes that have a darkening effect on paintwork please
I’ve got a Navarro Blue Audi and love the blue/black look that you can get in certain light
Thanks

Dodo’s Purple Haze with a good glaze underneath is hard to beat.

Thanks Guys really appreciate your help
Just purchased some DJ Black Widow wax DJ claim it’s slightly superior to Purple Haze Pro and Blue Velvet Pro and based on their Supernatural Hybrid wax so a good pedigree looking forward to trying it out with Prima Amigo underneath
It’s on sale at DJ too

The consensus seems to be that most good quality carnauba paste waxes have a darkening effect as opposed to synthetic waxes(sealants), is that correct?

Taken from the Autogeek website on the DJ Black Widow wax
''Carnauba wax is known for its extra glossy qualities, but the lesser known montan wax is what gives black paint that extra clarity and depth. Dodo Juice Black Widow Wax uses a mixture of both to provide a unique formula that is like none you’ve ever seen before''.

I’m currently using black widow on top of Lime Prime and it’s a winner.
