Francesca Bianchi

Sex and the Sea

extrait de parfum



A novel twist on an amber accord. 

A long, hot summer on an Italian beech, that's Sex & the Sea.
This scent is designed to evoke a complex, intimate atmosphere. It’s a combination of coconut sun lotion, a fresh memory of pineapple, a delicate yet troubling note of sunburnt, salty and sweaty skin, slightly suggesting the wild intimacy of an erotic encounter at the seaside.

Blogger Pierre de Nishapur on Sex & the Sea: "Fluent, oriental and sensual. Means, Sex and the Sea, more than to be around coconut and wild flowers of the top, is around the nut and amber base to evoke intimacy air. It's a devil in bottle with great long lasting skin-embracing tenacity and mellow projection. Carpe Odor!"


mimosa, pineapple, coconut, immortelle, rose, iris, sandalwood, myrrh, labdanum, benzoin, ambergris, civet, vanilla


"Made by Italian hands", a beautiful statement to describe this brand of Amsterdam-based and self-taught perfumer Francesca Bianchi. 

The Italian perfumer Francesca Bianchi brought three scents to the market in 2016. These perfumes amazed many people and a series of positive reviews followed. Luca Turin rated her Angel's Dust with 4 stars, which sure is not nothing for a starting perfumer!

At the age of 28, her fascination for essential oils started. This grew out to be a true passion which she converted into creating perfumes. With pride she develops her scents. From the first draft, to the sticking on of the labels, she does everything herself, with her Italian hands, in her atelier in Amsterdam.

We enjoy working together with this extremely passionate and crafty perfumer. With great pleasure we can reveal Cuir Soyeux, a limited edition creation by Francesca, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.

I’m in love with Sex and the Sea. This my 6th bottle. One of my favorite perfumes.

Beaches on the other side of the world

This is absolutely stunning and unique and reminiscent of faraway places. It reminds me of that smell when I come back from a long lazy day at the beach and my skin is hot and sunkissed and I can smell dried seafoam, sand and seagrass mixed with suntan lotion and mojitos. It is both carnal and ethereal at the same time. Francesca is an alchemist and I am in awe of her magic. Thank you, team Perfume Lounge for always communicating so effortlessly and kindly, for sharing your passion and for great service! All the best!

pina colada

Ik zat de hele dag in een wolk van een Pina Colada cocktail, veel te zoet en een beetje te jeugdig. Op mijn huid had ik wel een heerlijke geur van zon, zee en zongebruinde huid maar enkel als ik er met mijn neus op zat.

Sex and the Sea

Beautiful, sparkly and gorgeous!!
