Autumn In Salem™ Perfume Oil
Aroma palette is haunting, earthy, and woodsy. Highlights include aged wood, antiqued cedar chests, windswept autumn leaves, witch shop incense, rain misted old houses, and bare birch trees.
There is a particular aroma in the air in Salem during Autumn. It is this peculiar, haunting, and oddly specific aroma that this evocative blend is based on. The smell of old houses, cool air, and leaves releasing their scent when crushed underfoot. A phantom of incense passes by and fuses the palette together against a backdrop of misting rain.
This blend has an ancient, timeless haunt. It is rooted in Elemi and cedar fused with bits of figs, birch, and a ghosting of cucumber and fresh rain.
All of our perfumes are presented beautifully packaged, making each of our bottles an artful indulgence for yourself or for gift-giving. If you would like to add a notecard with a handwritten message, the option is available at checkout.
Here's my interpretation - I do smell the cedar but it almost transforms to an apple smell, probably due to the leaves component. Its sweet, but not overpoweringly so. I can definitely say that when wearing it I think of walking through dried leaves on the ground (and the sweet smell that they give off), a hint of moisture in the air (maybe it rained last night or is going to), and a cool breeze bringing all the comfort that Fall embraces.
The only problem I have with this oil is that I cannot take a bath in it. It's so intoxicating and bewitching that I want it in a massive size so I can cover myself in it from head to toe and just let it envelope me in it's deliciousness. It's not only the epitome of Autumn in Salem, it's magic in a bottle. I want everything I own to smell like this.
This scent perfectly encapsulates the smell of a brisk walk on a fall day. At different moments, I can smell crunching leaves, chilly air, and a fleeting cool drizzle. Balanced, nuanced, and unique, Autumn in Salem is fall in a bottle.
These are the best perfumes. Rich, moody, beautiful. the only place I go for artisanal scents.
This was my first Black Baccara fragrance. As someone who lives in Autumn 12 months of the year - at least, in my head I do - I found this to be perfect and I will be wearing it year-round. Others here have broken down their impressions of the scent, so I will just remark that if the description seems like your sort of thing, give it a try.
