Aroma palette is woodsy, floral, and metallic. Highlights include dark florals, merlot, orris, ylang ylang, oud, and blood accord.

This blend is a dark dreamscape of black and white blooms, blood, red wine, and fog. Vena Cava begins with orris, ylang yang, brooding oud, and the faint smoke of burning embers. On the dry down, deep red merlot peeks through the mist and the aroma becomes more woodsy and metallic. A highly unusual, sultry, and dark blend that creates a beautifully seductive noir aura.

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.

This Oil is Insane(ly good)

I can't rave enough about this scent. When I first bought it I was a bit skeptical because it does have a very metallic and sweetly bloody smell when you first put it on. But that hesitation quickly faded because when Vena Cava settles, it is what can only be described as intoxicating and divinely erotic. I love musky scents but a lot of them on the market are very masculine smelling, and I'm not the biggest fan of spicy perfumes, so I wasn't expecting to love this so much. But Vena Cava is so feminine and sensual that whenever I am wearing it I just feel like a goddess that is walking this earth. If you're reading the description and nervous about the idea of a bloody smell, don't be! Take the plunge like I did and you will not regret it. It is the perfect balance of spice, musk, and sweet and while definitely unexpected, I realize now that this is what scent I was missing in my life.

Intricate and absolutely divine.

Such a wonderful, well crafted oil. Its so different and dark. I ran out and im just indulging in the last few drops. Definitely my favorite fragrance. Knowing the detail and dedication put into making this blows my mind. Vena cava is so enticing and actually makes my mouth water. Brilliant work.

Surprising and great

I’m a cardiac nurse so I had to try it and didn’t know what to expect. It’s definitely unique with a red candy like scent that dries into a bloodish scent in a good way. My daughter loved it and said that it reminded her of the old candy store we used to go to on the beach which I thought was interesting.

Not just for vampires

I love and hate buying artisan perfumes because I’ll fall in love with a scent, want to remember it forever, and then the artisan will close their shop and I’ll be broken hearted saving my last dabs of oil. I hope Black Baccara never disappears.
This is a strange comparison, but once the initial hit of earth, metal and winey fruit dies down, it reminds me of some handmade scents I bought from someone on Etsy years ago (vampire inspired) that I thought I’d never find again. On my skin, it evaporates into smoky wood and incense, dragon’s blood, and musky florals. The wine evaporates and I’m left with love spells, glossy art books, cobwebs and wine bottles used as candleholders. I may or may not be describing my room as a young goth decades ago.

I have never been so distracted by my own scent. I wore this out for the first time tonight and kept catching a whiff, and each time I just had to pause for a moment to close my eyes and examine the scent. I am obsessed. I think I've finally found my signature scent. It's seductive, almost boozy, very floral, with a metallic, carnal edge that makes me feel like a very old and beautiful vampire, living in a mountain castle, luring men to their deaths and tending to her flower beds.
