Your second (and sexy) skin
Imagine a warm night, in a small wooden house. In front, you have a magnificent field with some flowers. Behind you, a dense forest. You get up in the morning and go out the door.

You inhale as hard as you can and there you find all the aromas of Under My Skin. A light floral touch, dense woods and damp from the morning dew. Your lover's perfume is still on your skin, mixed with your partner's sweat.

Smell of home, smell of intimacy, smell of a night of passion, smell of flowers, smell of wood... smell of you. Smells like all the things that have melted at once.

The smell is subtle, but little by little it becomes more penetrating. When you want to notice it, it has flooded everything... and at the same time it has become one with you.

When you take a shower, you still have it, it has permeated the atmosphere, your clothes...

This is Under My Skin. A slightly complicated perfume to understand, but you have to let yourself be carried away by the sensations in order to enjoy it.

The duration is eternal. The small 30ml bottle will be passed on to your children. The projection is moderate, but constant. The ever-present note. When you move, the aura it leaves is dense and intoxicating.

Totally recommended.

An evocative and intimating journey
Your face is as bright as the stars in the heavens,
Your smile is as sweet as the treasures of the honeybees,
Your voice is as calm as the morning breeze in the springs,
Your approach is as intimating as you are Under My Skin...

And that's how I feel the fragnance...

Baby, lay(er) me down..
It may be childish, but I just can't give up this scent yet, even though I really smell like leather seat for the first few minutes. I like leather on others - but on myself it is highly irritating. That is simply not me.

All advocates of the leather in this fragrance, please read away, sacrilege follows: I lay Bianchi's masterpiece. Because, fortunately, the beautiful base does prevail in the end. And it's really great. Skin-y, special and anything but arbitrary. My favourite layer candidate is "Beachwalk" by Replica Maison Margiela. It makes the leather on my skin softer and more cuddly, without disturbing this scent too much..

Under my skin and speaking to my soul
On my skin, this is lustful and spicy, animalic and warm. I get warm spices, leather, powdery orris, Ambergris and castoreum. Tolu balsam, musk and pepper pop in and out. I think it's the most gorgeous of Francesca's creations.

White sheets, naked skin, warm bodies...
Fragrance perfume fair September 2019 in Florence:

Outside nice and warm 28-30 degrees with blue sky and sunshine... Inside a pleasant 18-20 degrees... Not overcrowded, but well attended was the Fragranze on that sunday...

So Francesca Bianchi was also represented among several perfumers and had a small stand in the middle of the turmoil... You couldn't miss the booth...

Up to now I had only tested your Lover's Tale, which possesses an enoooorme radiance and endurance... The Lover's Tale is really too strong, too wild, too smoky, too animalistic, too masculine and too extravagant for me - even if it is really very well done, one must not forget that...
... and yes, I really like strong and distinctive scents, but Lover's Tale really blew me away ;-P

So I still had the bad scent of Lover's Tale in my head and so I approached the scents of Francesca Bianchi with great care ;-)

Under my Skin was last and these were and are my impressions:

The opening on my skin is resinous, sweet with various spices... Not pungently spicy, but very skilfully coordinated, embedded in buttery iris and balsamic resins... In addition there are animal vapours, which are neither sweaty nor faecal, no they are again very skilfully dosed and absolutely harmonious... it "humanizes" animal-like... you know what I mean?
I would even go so far as to say it smells intimate: naked skin on white sheets, the bodies rubbing against each other, warm, erotic and a little wicked? (no body fluids or similar)

Later, soft leather sounds are added, as if the naked bodies were no longer stretched on white sheets, but on the finest Italian leather... the smell of leather on naked skin makes me somehow washy, it just smells incredibly sexy and beautiful...

Later, the scent becomes tamer and sweeter... Vanilla, sandalwood and tonka bean merge into one and surround the delicate animal scent... are wonderfully creamy and fluffy, soft and flattering on my skin...

All in all a wonderful and intimate fragrance for me, which I would not want to miss anymore...
In the meantime I have added Under my Skin to my collection and every time I wear it I am overwhelmed and fascinated...

The only negative point is that the Sillage is rather tender and close to my skin - and the durability is not sooo high (about 5 hours) - but then you can spray a little bit more ;-)

Thank you Francesca Bianchi for this wonderful fragrance :-)

Under My Skin
The opening (when I sniff close to skin) is odd and bordering on repulsive, but the scent around me makes me weak in the knees: a combination of a subtle soft sweetness and warm spicy skin...
UMS is so deep and rich, none of the notes jump out individually and I love that. You sense them all sparkling together in unison, creating a cloud of mat golden dust.

Longevity: 24 hours on me
Sillage: subtly swirling around the room
Projection: about 2, maybe 3 feet

Francesca Bianchi is a genius.

Sweet animal
This is a perfume which change a lot from the opening tíl the end. The begining is for me wonderful. It is sweet, Deep, intense, sexy... A bit close to sex & the sea but less sweet. For me the opening is very close Aldo to mon precieux by note33, even when dont share any note with that. I LOVE the first 2-3 hours of the perfume. After that the civet begins to be more and more noticeable becoming the perfume more animalic every time until the last dry down, maybe after 6-8 hours, which is only animalic, even very close to the last dry down of kouros by YSL on my skin. The performance is good, It behaves as an exttait, but It is not as good as It is un sex & the sea. That perfume is a beast and that one only an average extrait. It is nice but not my favourite one.

Lay all your love on me...
Like when you walk old paths again,
invites "Under my skin to a Gang
through long forgotten areas
of your life so far.
You've been here before, just,
it used to look different!

Passing construction wagons,
extinguished fires,
and the range,
where the animals live.

Areas that belong to you,
that, sweet as bitter,
Part of your own story.

Of course it goes through rough terrain,
and over the years some things have grown,
the paths are lined with many things:

- of wild roses and chamomile, lavender and holy cabbage,
- old paper with both questions and answers, written with fat, blood and tears,
- Medical: the small and large containers in which were the sweetness of the placebos and also the sharpness of the wound healing and cleansing tinctures.
- of love, all-encompassing, written from rose petals.
- Of beautiful, powdered, tender and gentle people, with long lashes, light blue eyes and big hearts.
- Of finely woven nets that connect everything, invisible.
- the bang in the night that makes you drive up scared.
- music columns: the harp concerto by Georg Friedrich Händel, B major, 1st movement,
or "Whatever your dreams are" - The dogs.
- of set characters: physical as well as pictorial...
- of admonishers, wise men and shamans who pointed out early on that it was time to see the wounds in order to heal them.

A fragrance of a great depth
and an exciting, changing course.
The durability is enormous, the Sillage room-filling,
both even after hours...
so the almost 100 € for 30 ml are appropriate.
The story that this perfume can tell,
is priceless anyway.

I compare "Under my skin" in some respects with "Smolderose" -
the great summer love -
that's a very! big compliment
and ennobles "Under my skin" .
It consists in this comparison,
is sweeter throughout and a trace softer.

He doesn't get under my skin,
that do other scents stronger.
He's gonna get on my heart.
It's love.
He's moving in with me.

Lay all your love on me.

under your skin
you're getting under my skin...
you make everything vibrate: the delicate, vulnerable, the dreaming seeking
the wild, which never overwhelms the tenderness.
the primeval, the earth and the air

a peffrig aromatic iris dry gust of wind blows into your nose...awakens it ...seconds later, the sharpness steps to the side: a mysterious sea of flowers in the background. covered by a proud, quiet, spicy carnation, cool, fresh, spicy flowers shimmer in the shade.
this is as subtle as it is complex and refined.
powdery, spicy, indefinably aromatic. quiet like a whisper and intoxicating like a dream
the blossom ground gets more and more structure.
unpredictable animals slumber under the moss.
a breath of sweat, secretion and urine.... so subtle that it only touches the edge of consciousness...
rounded from finest leather
a fragrance that melts with the skin and makes it shine from the inside

Under My Skin is under my skin
Francesca Bianchi has quite simply captured the essence of intimacy. Physical intimacy yes, but it is also nearly impossible to wear this and not be reminded of all the emotions associated with that. This scent wears like a passionate, long-lasting affair. See my video review.

A clean and soapy, yet slightly salty, powdery floral-leathery Fall fragrance, balanced by a gentle animalic resinous-woody base. Unisex!

A balsamic spicy masterpiece. Creamy, powdery and slightly dirty. A must-try for leather fans, one of the best perfumes I've ever tried.
