Pride 2023 Press Kit
About Our Brand
Black Baccara is a niche perfume house located in New England. We produce artisanal, small batch fragrances inspired by history, mythology, nostalgia, and emotive atmospheres.
Founded by artist Kalliope Amorphous in 2010 as an extension of her work in experimental and conceptual art, Black Baccara is a one woman operation where each fragrance is carefully crafted by the artist from beginning to end. From the initial aromatic concept, to the label design, to the final boxing, each perfume is created and hand-poured by Kalliope in either her New York City or Rhode Island studios. With over fifteen years experience working in perfumery and a lifetime as a conceptual artist, Kalliope's passion for nostalgia and emotive atmospheres is at the heart of Black Baccara.
Gender-Free +Inclusive Fragrances
We believe that the concept of gendered fragrance is antiquated. We consider our fragrances gender-free and beyond the binary. In other words, if you like it, you should wear it.
Pride Launch 2023
Black Baccara is proudly queer-owned and we give back to our community every pride month.
This year we will be launching two new fragrances on June 1st. Love Is Love 2023 Edition will be raising funds for New Alternatives with 50% of proceeds going to support their work with LGTBQ+ homeless youth in New York City. The second fragrance is Say Gay, with 50% of proceeds going to support Equality Florida, the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida's LGBTQ+ community.
Pride Fragrance Descriptions
Love Is Love 2023 Edition
Aroma palette is lactonic, fruity, and woody. Highlights include cedar and subtle velvety woods, salted honeydew, sweet orange, bergamot, coconut cream, and lime.
This unique unisex blend opens with our gorgeous salted honeydew set against a velvety wood backdrop that quickly gives way to dollops of coconut cream and top note ghostings of bergamot, sweet orange, and lime. It settles into a delectable mélange of salted honeydew and creamy coconut resting on soft cedars. This is a beautifully balanced fresh and fruity lactonic fragrance that maintains its elegance by never veering too far to the sweet side. Available as a 5ml perfume oil or a 15ml Eau de Parfum. 50% of proceeds will be donated to New Alternatives, NYC.
Aroma palette is woody and resinous with touches of amber, leather, floral, and fruit. Highlights include oak moss, amber, frankincense, lavender, vetiver, orchid, hinoki wood, leather, and pineapple.
This distinctive and perfectly unisex blend opens with true pineapple set against the depths of a woody and resinous base composed of frankincense, oak moss, amber, vetiver, and hinoki wood. On the dry down, a faint hint of leather and lavender emerge alongside a delicate orchid. This uniquely morphing blend settles into a rich woody amber with overtones of soft pineapple. Available as a 5ml perfume oil or a 15ml Eau de Parfum. 50% of proceeds will be donated to Equality Florida.
