Francesca Bianchi Under My Skin – This is her interpretation of the animalic theme. After adding animalic materials going into the heavy or sweet or stable-like direction, she 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.
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 she used grapefruit and lavender. She used to be a ‘Lavender hater’: but here it plays a subtle and elegant part.
Francesca Bianchi Under My Skin is for men and women.
