Product Description

The title of Francesca Bianchi's latest creation is the incipit of a masterpiece of poetry - The Tyger by William Blake. 

“Tyger Tyger, burning bright,h
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?”

In Tyger Tyger, Francesca says she was searching for the perfect balance between two opposite elements, and the expression of their clashing contraposition. She had in mind a Post-Apocalyptic condition, where traces of a highly sophisticated and refined civilization survived in the dark and fearful condition of a collapsed and de-structured world. Blake’s Tyger embodies both qualities Francesca wanted to depict in her olfactory composition: the sublime and irresistibly attractive from one side and the terrible and scary from the other one. The ‘fearful symmetry’ – a character trait Blake attributed to the tiger – aptly represents this opposition of beautiful perfection and terror.

The perfume is built around an accord of narcotic white flowers with sweet and fruity facets. Tuberose absolute – akin to the protagonist of a dramatic piece - is the finest example of the refined civilization of a bygone world; in opposition to that refinement, the base notes present different kind of woods - some with burnt and leathery qualities - referring to a post-apocalyptic scenario of destruction, mystery and darkness. The result of these parts – which wouldn’t work individually – is a clashing, sparkling, dramatically sophisticated fragrance.

(NB:This is an extrait de parfum with a concentration of 25% and an average longevity of 12 hours.)

NOTES: Narcotic flowers, honey, peach jam, patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss, oud, leather, heliotropin

  1. LOVE THIS!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2022

    I would seriously give it 10 stars if I could.

    It's a magical scent, with "je ne sais quai"... it's just lovely and soothing and floral and warm and sweet and sunshine-y and comforting.

    I will 100% repurchase this scent when I am finished my bottle. In my opinion, it's the best from her line, and so different from most of the scents on the market just now.
