Aroma palette is fruity, floral, and beautifully strange and highlights include freshly laundered denim, retro musk, tobacco, velvety orris, strawberry candy, vintage amber, and tobacco.

A phantom aroma of the early 80’s, this subtle blend evokes an aura of denim, musk, big hair, and unbridled individuality. This soft and unusual blend is rooted in orris and tobacco giving way to lime and hints of strawberries. In the background, an amber musk keeps the blend balanced and soft, evoking memories of the odd and fruity perfumes of the decade.  

Don't let the inspiration alone fool you -this is not an overpowering or dated fragrance. It's a fruity and slightly floral musk that harkens back to another time, evoking nostalgia while standing on it's own as a unique, very complex, and enchanting blend.

    What Are Perfume Oils?

    Please note that these are not fragrance oils; they are perfume oils (artisan perfumes presented in oil format). They are meant to be worn on the skin and are not suitable for wax warmers, oil burners, or aroma diffusers. The only difference between our perfume oils and Eau de Parfums is the oil format. Many people prefer perfume oils because they wear close to the skin and unfold a bit more non-linearly than Eau de Parfums. For a more in-depth look at perfume oils, please peruse our knowledge base articles.

    About Perfume Oils

    Perfume oils do not unfold their complexity when experienced directly from the bottle. If you attempt to gauge the aroma of a perfume oil by smelling it from the bottle, your experience will not be accurate whatsoever. Always test perfumes on your body for the full experience.

    Apply first to your pulse points (the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, and the inner elbows) where it will warm with your body heat to unfold the fragrance.

    Perfume oil, unlike alcohol-based perfumes, wears close to the skin. It warms on your body, adapts to your body chemistry, and creates a halo of scent on the body. As it fades, perfume oil can be applied throughout the day as a personal aromatic ritual.

    Not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, children, or pets. Always patch test for potential allergies before applying liberally.

    My favorite...maybe...

    Okay this one is the favorite out of the samples I've tried...maybe...because now I need to try them all, I will try them all. I cannot even describe it, its surprising and nostalgic at the same time. Love it!

    love it

    reminds me of an arcade! the candy jumps out at you straight away, but once you wear it a while the other notes come in and compliment each other in the nicest way so it's not too sweet-smelling. overall a really nice scent.

    Love the scent, reminds me of dancing at Medusa's Chicago. The sweet musky tones last a very long time. Definitely recommend!

    Spunky and Fun!

    How in the world do you create a scent that evokes memories of a year? I don't know, but this perfume is so much fun to wear. It is lively. It's a bit of sweetness but also an earthiness. I was 20 in 1983 living in Southern California. It was the start of my weird phase that hasn't passed yet. I love everything about this scent. I also want to give credit for the labels on the bottles; they are really creative and beautiful. These scents are something different entirely. They are wearable art, as another reviewer mentioned. It's true.

    I just got this perfume today and as always (with every Black Baccara perfume I try) I am blown away! I can smell the sweet tobacco mingling with the light strawberry and then there is something lightly spicy...almost cinnamon-like but maybe thats the orris? I am not sure but it is so pretty and I love it! This is one of my favorite perfume houses because everything is gorgeous, unique,and haunting in some way. ♡
