Aroma palette is dark and woodsy. Highlights include antique wood, charred violets, agarwood smoke, and fireplace embers.

Our ode to the House Of Seven Gables is a dark, brooding blend that encapsulates the experience of walking through the seventeenth century historic home. An eerie antique wood accord is the centerpiece of this blend, which travels through charred violet, the haunting smell of agarwood smoke, a quick ghosting of clove, and a touch of fireplace smoke on the dry down. A highly atmospheric blend, this aroma will instantly transport you to another time and place.

Strong and intense but in a good way!

When I first put this scent on my skin it was incredibly strong. I was hoping this was going to be a good sign of longevity and boy was it! This scent lasted over 8 hours on my skin. The first notes I could smell were Violet and an Antique Wood scent. The violet was not a soapy or candied Violet, but a Violet that was darkened and dried by the wood scent. This combination was overpowering at first, but as it dried down, it became slightly less intense. About an hour in, the Agarwood Smoke made an appearance. This made the scent smell more smoky, but not too smoky. At about the 3 1/2 hour mark, the fireplace embers came into play and the fragrance took on a whole new scent. It became more like a beautiful violet infused incense, even slightly sweet smelling (but not too much). It is a beautiful scent and I am glad I got a full bottle of it. It really does evoke the feeling of being in the House Of The Seven Gables (which I go to on my yearly trip to Salem, MA). You definitely don't need to be heavy handed with the application on this one. A little bit goes a loooooooong way. Highly recommended!

Oh my! I love, love, love this blend. Charred violets settle so beautifully into your skin.

Intoxicating, enchanting, and gloriously dark.

I admit that I was unsure of this at first, but upon opening it, I quickly fell in love! In the bottle I can smell a fireplace that well seasoned wood was burned in. I can smell the kindling catching as the pinecones crackle beneath it. At least, that's the mental image it conjures for me. I can also smell something like leather in it. And hints of tobacco. Those notes remind me of my grandfather. I can smell the floral element in it, but it's as if it surrounds you, instead of emanating from you. Like an aura of violets. This fragrance is like a handsome witch, grinning mischievously from the shadows. I would definitely buy again!

Viva Violettes!! 🖤💜

This is my new favorite! I sampled it in the Halloween 2020 collection and was so delighted with this most unusual fragrance that I purchased it in a larger size. The scent is intoxicating, a dark, smoldering violet bouquet with smoky and earthen overtones. Delicious!

A gorgeous and masculine take on violets

I found The Gables very interesting. First, it definitely smells like walking through a historic home. In particular, it smells to me as though I am sitting in the home's library or parlor. I am not sure why I pinpoint that image exactly. That said, this is the most "perfumey" (if that makes sense) of all the Black Baccara oils I have tried yet. While I do love it and the image it conjures, I am not a fan of this on myself, and that is for one reason. For me, the fragrance leans heavily on the masculine side. I know that fragrances are unisex, so this only applies for those who have preferences for either masculine or feminine fragrances for themselves or to people they gift. I do love The Gables though, and I have a friend I am going to gift it to, I know he will love it!

In the bottle, I definitely pick up on the wood and violet. In fact the violet is a very nice violet, very green, which is what I believe it what may be giving this blend the "perfumey" scent I described before. After dry down on my skin, the violet calms down immensely and gives way to the fireplace smoke. I can barely pick up on the clove on my skin, just very barely.

Despite not liking this for my personal use, I am going to love smelling my friend when I hug him with this on him. Another work of art by Black Baccara!
