Midnight Mass Perfume Oil
Aroma palette is smoky, incense, and resinous. Highlights include frankincense, myrrh, ancient moss, aged merlot, antique woods, and extinguished candle wick.
The aromatic experience of Midnight Mass is captured in this evocative unisex blend. Frankincense, moss growing on old stones, several types of sandalwood, church incense, and the faintest hint of chalice wine are just some of the stories that rise up from this blend.
In the background of this blend, candle wick and smoke rise to the surface mingling with the wood aromas. Sacred, timeless, evocative, brooding and precise to the aromas of a midnight mass in winter.
This blend is a new iteration of our Midnight Mass which was released in 2010. It is true to the original with the only difference being a bit more emphasis on the aroma of burning candles.
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.
This is a beautiful scent. The frankincense and myrrh notes are prominent, and linger as well as the other scents.
I am entering formation to become a religious sister—so I spend a lot of time at church. This fragrance is spot on (though my Sunday solemn Mass uses a less frankincense heavy incense) to my favorite church, which was built in the 1850s and still has the heavy wooden pews original to the building. After Mass, this is the scent that lingers in the church, like incense on your clothes when you sit in the front and the altar boy is feeling the censer swinging a little too much, with almost beeswax-y undertones and faint candle smoke, and while I can’t identify the moss I definitely get a whiff of the wine after the initial incense scent settles after application. (And whew, somebody remind Father that Communion wine needs to be under 16%, even if he is diluting it in the Eucharist.) Every time I try to put on another perfume—even my other Black Baccara scents—I still keep wishing I was wearing Midnight Mass instead. It’s such a comforting scent to me, like being wrapped in a hug.
In short: yes, this Mass-themed perfume has the approval of a (future) Catholic nun.
This literally smells like church during Chistmas midnight mass, which has been a tradition in my family since I was a child. It’s like I’m inside the little silver incense ball. Can also smell wooden pews and lit candles. If you like church incense, this is a must try.
I have been a fan of Kalliope for years...and wore many of the Black Baccara scents. There has been a slight change in some of them, but this one has moved to the top of my list! I am a frankincense lover, and Midnight Mass captures the heavenly aroma that brings one into the realm of the gods! My sample is going quickly, so I just ordered a full bottle.
This fragrance is as wonderful as it sounds, according to the description provided by this wonderful sorceress of scent! I love the sandalwood in this, but what I think I really appreciate most is the wine notes.. it's like the most decadent mulled wine you can imagine, with the slightest bit of darkness thrown in. Midnight Mass is one of the most gorgeous scents offered!
