Black Baccara Midnight Mass has notes of frankincense, myrrh, ancient moss, aged merlot, antique woods and an extinguished candle wick. From the brand - "The aromatic experience of Midnight Mass is captured in this evocative unisex blend. Frankincense, moss growing on old stones, several types of sandalwood, church incense, and the faintest hint of chalice wine are just some of the stories that rise up from this blend. In the background of this blend, candle wick and smoke rise to the surface mingling with the wood aromas. Sacred, timeless, evocative, brooding and precise to the aromas of a midnight mass in winter."

Black Baccara - "I am entering formation to become a religious sister—so I spend a lot of time at church. This fragrance is spot on (though my Sunday solemn Mass uses a less frankincense heavy incense) to my favorite church, which was built in the 1850s and still has the heavy wooden pews original to the building. After Mass, this is the scent that lingers in the church, like incense on your clothes when you sit in the front and the altar boy is feeling the censer swinging a little too much, with almost beeswax-y undertones and faint candle smoke, and while I can’t identify the moss I definitely get a whiff of the wine after the initial incense scent settles after application. (And whew, somebody remind Father that Communion wine needs to be under 16%, even if he is diluting it in the Eucharist.) Every time I try to put on another perfume—even my other Black Baccara scents—I still keep wishing I was wearing Midnight Mass instead. It’s such a comforting scent to me, like being wrapped in a hug.
In short: yes, this Mass-themed perfume has the approval of a (future) Catholic nun."
Reddit - "This is amazing. I asked for things to smell like incense and also mass and does this deliver. I smell exactly like midnight mass.
It is taking me back to going to midnight mass in person - the incense sweeping across the pews, the wine smells, the sweetness of it all. It's wonderful. It isn't cloying at all. It smells completely spot on. I love this."
