    Under My Skin

    by francescabianchiperfumes

    Under My Skin is Francesca Bianchi's personal interpretation of the animalic theme: not loud, but whispered. It's an elegant, powdery, leathery scent, more human than animalic. The title comes from a conversation with an artist, who told Francesca it is as if the perfume emanates from the skin, rather than being sprayed on. Under My Skin is an intoxicating, intimate concept of a fragrance.

    NOTES: Grapefruit, lavender, black pepper, spices, Bulgarian rose, carnation, iris butter, musk, castoreum, ambergris, leather accord, costus, Tonka bean, tolu balsa, Peru balsam, sandal mysore, vanilla, tree moss

    1. Apparently many people love this fragrance... 1 Star Review

      Posted by on 2nd Jun 2020

      ...I did not. I was unable to wear it beyond about 20 minutes, because it started making me queasy. It is also NOT easy to remove; it's a clinger.

      For me this fragrance started out on a strong baby powder note, followed by a quickly growing leather(ish?)/skin smell. (For whatever reason, it was this second quality that sat wrong with me.)

      A couple of minutes in, a spicier note began to come in, which I was hoping would stay and predominate to replace the skin/leather/animalic part that was bothering me, but it didn't.

      I didn't get any further into the warmup or drydown, because I had to wash it off, or I'd have become ill.

      I don't want to be too negative about this fragrance, because from reading others' reviews, elsewhere, I am far in the minority in disliking it. However, my experience with it echoes someone else's who said that the human skin/animalic note evoked more of a "sweet, decaying flesh" vibe for them--and that was how my gut and olfactory sense was reacting. A visceral, bad response, at the instinctive/revulsion level.

      My apologies to Francesca Bianchi: Everyone else thinks it's wonderful; no offense!


    2. spicy wood oriental with great performance 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 9th Jan 2020

      opens with spices, particularly cinnamon. the drydown is DIVINE. i can't nose any particular notes, but it's a musky woody fragrance. i can't stop hoovering my wrists! i had to have a bottle after i finished my 5ml decant. unisex(y) & lasts forever. projection stays close to the skin, but leaves a sillage/scent trail.


    3. Now for something special! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 3rd Jan 2020

      I was able to test the entire line on test strips and this scent immediately caught my attention. While waiting for the dry-down of the various scents, this kept going. I was deeply impressed and tested it on skin, which made me love it even more!
      This is somewhat anamalic but in a very alluring way. After wearing this for the last two weeks, I am totally pleased and am coming back for more of the line.


    4. An Amazing Fragrance 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 10th Jan 2018

      I had read nice nice things about this fragrance and decided to purchase a 30 ml bottle. I am glad I did! A prominent orris note with subdued leather and animalic notes makes Under My Skin blind-buy worthy and a must-have. This is not a fragrance bomb and have worn this to work without any issues. I have received a number of compliments from both women and men. A solid 10 out of 10.
