Resurrecting Ophelia™ Perfume Oil
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, oceany 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. Not for the faint of heart, it’s a very dark, dreary, eerie, and somber conceptual fragrance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 🌿🌙
