Tonight, I'll be reviewing a perfume from a company I've never previously tried before! I love discovering new companies, and I wouldn't have heard about Black Baccara had I not read some of your guys' recent SADs; and also seeing it on the lovely La Domna's ScentBase! After reading the description, I knew I had my heart set on this little perfume.
I suppose I knew I would adore it without even spritzing the bottle, because it did leak a teeny bit on its journey to me and, therefore, I could already smell its amazingness! I can't detect exactly what it is I am smelling, but I'll post the scent description and try to decipher it. This is from the company's etsy shop:
❀BONEYARD-A long walk through the cemetery in autumn has made its way into this bottle. Cloves, cedar, damp soil, and a whispered offering of violets and wildflowers make way for deep earth, oak moss, and an extinguished candle flame carried on the wind. Dark, brooding, earthy and timeless.

I'm pretty sure it's the cloves I'm smelling at first. After a minute or two, I can smell the earthy
presence to this gem. I'm fairy certain it's the oak moss I'm getting, perhaps with a slight touch of the damp soil. Something about this really grounds it and makes it more polished and not like you're a wet, mossy, Cemetary leaf (nothing wrong with smelling of such, but it is nice to smell more layers upon that). I wish I could say what I'm smelling exactly, but my perfume noobiness seems to be holding me back.
And let me tell you guys, the drydown on Boneyard does NOT disappoint. I can smell the floral notes dancing with a hint of something sinister in the background, and it's absolutely stunning. It's literally one of the most beautiful perfumes I've ever had the pleasure of sniffing. The etsy scent description says you only need one spritz, and that certainly holds true! I only used one spray, and it was quite strong (even with my stupid sick senses).
I would like to honestly comment on longevity, but it wouldn't be a true answer because, again, my immune system isn't at its best. I will say that we spent a couple hours at a cute secondhand/art store, and I can still tell the perfume is on my wrist.
I really love dark and gothic themed things, so I'm really glad I was able to stumble on Black Baccara through you wonderful ladies! Boneyard is really one of those perfumes that make you look crazy because it smells so good, your nose is glued to your wrist all day. This is really a wonderful perfume, in my opinion of course.
