Please note that this fragrance will be retiring at the beginning of December.

Aroma palette is a dark aquatic floral. Highlights include ocean water, forget-me-nots, lotus blossom, withering violets, sea grass, cedars, and deep woods.

A tangle of withering flowers floats to the surface of murky green ocean water carrying bits of the ocean floor in its petals. Ghosts weave in and out through the ocean air silently pressing their stories into the salt.

Inspired by the tragic heroine Ophelia, this is a dark, sad, oceanic, dark water blend. The saltiness of the sea combines with deep oud, a handful of forget-me-nots, lotus blossom, grass, withering violets, and a ghosting of assorted woods and grasses. This complex blend is an aroma-poem written to all those lost to the sea or waters.

Artist Notes. This blend is highly conceptual and not for the faint of heart. It is a very dark, dreary, eerie, and somber atmospheric. 

This blend is a reformulation of our “Ophelia” originally released in 2010. It retains much of the same inspiration and aroma of the original blend, with several new notes added for depth and longevity.


Fractionated coconut oil, fragrance.

*We use skin-healthy fractionated coconut oil as a diluent for our oil-based fragrances due to it's non-greasy texture, odorlessness, stability, resistance to oxidation, and unparalleled shelf life.

*Our fragrances are composed of the highest quality essential oils, plant extracts, phthalate free synthetics, house-made accords, absolutes, resins, c02s, isolates, aroma chemicals, professional perfumery bases, and unique compositions crafted by the artist.

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.

So unique!

I bought this in a 5ml, blindly, might I add. I can’t even truly describe how magical this scent is. It’s like nothing I’ve had before. It’s sharp and strong, yet whimsical. The deep woodsy scent hits you first, and then the underlying violets and slight sea scent peaks out. I highly recommend for someone who wants a scent that won’t be like anything else in their collection.

Perfect Name

I recently discovered this place and bought a few dram bottles to try them out. This is the first scent I tried, and it smells amazing. It totally makes me think of wetness, spring flowers, and wood. I'm planning on it being my spring scent. I feel like this one stays very consistent on my skin over time too. I absolutely love the name and idea behind the scent.


This is one of my favorite perfumes from Black Baccara; it's like a Pacific Northwest seaweedy tidepool. I can't get enough of it.

Picked this as a sample for my first order, & I'm very happy I chose it. It smells like being riverside in the morning when dew still covers the flowers growing along the bank. My heart skips a beat thinking of Ophelia. Thank you so much! I've always loved her character & the story, & this is a beautiful moment you have created for me. It's a wet, floral, sweet, light, airy, & playful scent.

Stories in a bottle

Absolutely in love with my new scents from Baccars, the have a scent that isn’t easily described. It feels like the perfume tells a story with scent, you feel transported to a mossy lake at midnight 🌿🌙
