Description

A leathery, slightly animalic, powdery perfume, a velvety and elegant take.

Under My Skin is my interpretation of the animalic theme. I started working on it around 2 years ago. I was charmed by strong animalic scents, and I tried to do my own; but I had to realize that what I like in other’s creations is not necessarily what I like to create myself.

So after adding animalic materials going into the heavy or sweet or stable-like direction, I had to eliminate them little by little, and arrive to this solution which suits me the best: a leathery, slightly animalic, powdery one, a velvety and elegant take. It goes along with my personality and my style and when I finally realized that this was my way, I was finally happy and relieved.

The name comes from a conversation with an artist and fragrance lover, who said it is as if the scent emanates from the skin. This concept of ‘Under My Skin’ reinforced my path of going into something more subtly ’human’ than overtly ‘animal’. The core of the scent is a combination of animalic and leathery notes tamed by iris butter (at 15% irone!). After working on this core, I worked on the base notes, made up by Tolu Balsam, Peru Balsam, Tonka Bean and several kind of woods.

Last step of the job was the opening, where I used grapefruit and lavender. I used to be a ‘Lavender hater’: but here it plays a subtle and elegant part. I was amazed how nicely it matched this scent, adding brightness and elegance.Heerlijk warm en omhullend vierde parfum van parfumeur Francesca Bianchi.  Vol en spannend zoals u van deze parfumeur gewend bent.

Brand

Francesca Bianchi

"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.
