All Hallows Botanical Perfume Oil
This complex yet softly beautiful natural perfume is a woodsy, earthy, resinous blend with touches of green and citrus. Highlights include a deep earthy bouquet of frankincense, myrrh, and galangal root. Accented by top notes of basil, nerolina, and soft bursts of citrus from yuzu, this haunting blend reveals ylang ylang, petitgrain, and autumn leaves as it unfolds.

Our botanical perfumes are impassioned, moody blends handcrafted using only the finest natural essential oils, resins, absolutes, and plant materials in a skin healthy base of fractionated coconut oil. Botanical blends are 100% natural and do not contain any aroma chemicals, fragrance oils, unnatural compounds, phtalates, or preservatives. Our aroma palettes for our botanical blends rely on the magic of mother nature, as the ancients did when crafting fine perfumes.
Pure plant essences are complex, long lasting, and unfold beautifully on the skin, revealing an emotive scent story as unique as the individual wearing them. They tend to have less sillage than traditional or mixed media perfumes, lingering close to the skin and morphing with individual body chemistry in the most beautiful ways.
Apply to pulse points and allow to evolve and unfold with your body chemistry, reapplying as necessary as part of your daily ritual.
Some plant materials may settle to the bottom of your bottle. Shake well and enjoy.
Every perfume I have tried from this artist has truly blown me away with the artistry and quality and I am especially a fan of the new botanical perfumes. Natural perfumes can tend to be kind of flat on me, but not these! All Hallows is my favorite and reminds me of the smell of a witch shop. I wish this one would stay all year round because it's been my every day signature scent. The longevity is also excellent.
After trying the natural perfumes sampler I ended going back and buying them all in full sized. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but this one is something special to me. It really brings you to that feeling right before Halloween when the air is starting to change and life starts to feel a little bit mysterious and magical. This perfumer is a master at her craft and I really hope that the natural perfumes line will grow bigger to include more scents.
I was flattered when I was asked for this review. To be sure I am a repeat customer because I really like these products. Let's be honest. Scented oils are not a visual thing. They are all about how we as individuals react to the smell. The company does their best to describe things in words but that doesn't really communicate the scent. Also scents change based upon how the oils react with our own individual body chemistry.
So with Halloween/Samhain being one of my favorite celebrations I thought to try out their All Hallows blend. When I put it on I get "green" like cypress and stuff. But once it has been on me for awhile and the reaction of the oils with my own chemistry has settled down, I get the resins of frankincense and myrrh. Now it just so happens I LOVE those scents. For me it is like wearing incense.
Here is the issue with scents. What works for me may not work for you, what works for you may not work for me. It is how the oils react with our individual body chemistry. So this was a win for me. I liked this blend so much I ordered a second bottle. Btw, have I mentioned that I love this scent (giggles) Well I do. If in doubt, they have samplers. I recommend playing with those. I find that the longer a scent is on me the better I can judge if it is a fit for me. So there you are! Thank you Black Baccara for providing me with lovely scents that enhance my life. Cheers!
