The prince's princess, the black knight...all the other ladies of the court!
Pay homage to the real hero! Not the pretty boy in the castle. The black knight doesn't need a crown (not even on the bottle) to show the mob who rules the streets. He gets his hands dirty, takes care of the equipment himself, has calluses on his hands, sleeps on the straw, if necessary next to his horse, including all belongings in the saddlebags.
It started with Him and only He remains.
I've taken almost 2 weeks now with the Bianchi Discovery set. Like not many other houses (my horizon here only gives Zoologist and the Replicas) know how to name the scent, stir up expectations and then link them in your synapses to the "story" from your imagination or past. Of myself, I would claim to agree with the scenery only because I learned the name before the scent. Blindly, this link would never have come about. Sure, there have been flops, but no one goes into it thinking, this is going to be my new date scent. There is a fantasy being sold and it looks different on everyone.
But what works is the direction it puts you in. You don't walk into a bookstore, see a hardcover with a castle and people in tunics, open it up, read the first few pages, and think of a space station just because he didn't look at the back cover beforehand, when the novel wants to have taken place. Names like "sticky fingers", "sex and the sea" or "under my skin" do something to you and your attitude. If you smelled just a whiff of IsoE or Ambroxan, you'd be close to nausea and the brand would be down, right?
I do a reverent curtsy, to the work and daily journey through my imagination. The illusion has worked sometimes more and sometimes less, but I've never been disappointed. Just not ready or up to what was being concocted. To the line, however, the series has remained true to itself and artificial or out of place, there is nothing here.
But now to my personal "winner" of the games at the court.
The black knight was put to my heart due to my love of leathery, smoky scents and it was indeed love at first smell. The illusion of the knight, his saddle, down to earth, nature, campfire, freedom and respect, was met and exceeded. Leather, smoke, and spices fight for my attention. Even though beeswax is supposed to be in it, it doesn't make the scent a candle, it makes the leather shine smooth in my imagination. I miss the iris butter in the composition, not at all!
Patchouli I really don't notice until very late, and by that I mean 2 days later on my hoodie that I wear around the house when I'm cold and want to be comfortable. That's it for my spectrum and that's all it took to catch me.

Unlike the lovers Tale, I can't picture the black knight on any woman and develop romantic feelings. It's tart, masculine and not for children, but manages to build trust. While a hug means no air for the other person, you are safe. He may be for the adolescent squires of this era, which every chest hair is a thorn in the eye, not quite contemporary to be, but who wants to be a knight is not for hours in front of the mirror.
Durability and sillage are like most from the series, impressive on the skin, on the clothes....ionizing. Since cotton atoms are destroyed and the molecules connect with every fiber, the price does not matter anymore. An Ipuro fragrance stands in the office, the hoodie on the armchair, the black knight controls the room and the air in it.
Can everyone a test warmly recommend and for the open and curious maiden, the Lovers Tale to it. (Only please do not wear at the same time)

Sorry for the long love letter!

ultra male
Leather, vetiver, dry green notes and iris to make everything more dusty. Pungent, sometimes rough and angular. It's male, not simply to indicate his gender but because he is really male to the nth degree. There is not a single note in this perfume that makes it even vaguely unisex. I do not find it difficult at all and I also use it at work in very very formal contexts, it is a perfume that can be felt and distinguished, it tastes like a man, an adult man. Absolutely not suitable for a kid in a tracksuit or Bermuda shorts. Like the others Bianchi's perfumes, of course, it is not to be blind bought but must necessarily be tried (well) first. Performances absolutely worthy of the declared concentration, not like the other crafty ones (including Italians, but we don't mention names ...) who declare "Extrait" and have poor EdT performances; duration about 10-12 hours, with a moderate wake sillage in the first two, you will feel it for a very long time. Nice nice nice.

T-Rex by Zoologist why are you on a leash ?
The opening reminds of a gothic library, very old, gloomy and with a lot of leather. In the course of Black Knight is difficult to describe ... It has totally different ingredients than the T-Rex of Zoologist, but the DNA is extremely identical for me only that it is not so extremely smoky and so brute without the BBQ note. This is definitely in my opinion the version of the T-Rex that is on a leash, and has been tamed !!! Very rough, dirty leather with a green note and gritty aftertaste. The motto was not badly implemented, but under the name I expected something completely different and with what very noble mysterious expected ... Hands off a blind buy and test the before! There are definitely people who will like the, despite which is the extremely habituation needy!

Arya from the house of Stark
Dear Francesca,

your crazy session to the Lovers Tale in the cowshed, not everyone's cup of tea, but exciting to experience something like that. What I found so fascinating, how rollig yet some were after this event.

And now comes another such firecracker, is yes more to my taste - this beautiful fragrance.
As an art historian, you see Giovanni dalle Bande Nere, a Medici - member in the papal guard. Clever, because he used lighter horses for battle in those days, and by being in the vanguard gave his troops an advantage to strike quickly. He had traitors executed, but this welded his troops together even more.

As a wife and Game of Thrones pathfinder, this scent is Arya. This little girl, who prefers to fight as a child, rides through the world with the drunkard Sandor Clengane, becomes the Faceless One in a monastery, and ultimately decides everyone's fate by taking down the Night King.
Okay, she was a bit of a mass murderer - but it helped the story and I liked it. The handsome Jon Snow and the brave Daenerys were also good. But Arya, she rocked it: brave, with the incoming experience more and more ruthless, smart, pretty and yet always worried about her loved ones.

I can literally smell the horse she's riding. Even though vetiver also equals man to me. Arya can wear this. A rose wrapped in leather, coated in iris butter - waxy, leathery great and minimally honeyed.

A noble knight is Black Knight to me. But enough about both of us for now, dear Francesca. Your fragrances are an experience. But there are still so many fragrances that I want to try. But I would come to a medieval festival. Maybe in St. Peter's Square?

Love and see you soon

Cold Night
This release from Francesca Bianchi is somewhat of a departure from her signature animalic sensuousness. Featuring vetiver in a more up-front role along with leather, it's an intriguing, mysterious combination...hope you enjoy, and thank you for watching.

Initially very bold, complex and dark leather based scent. But on the skin is just very heavy, dark leather that settles down to vetiver.

This one makes a statement when one's wearing it. It's a sweety chypre with a touch of leather. Absolutely gorgeous scent, stellar quality.

Initially herbal spicy-sweet, a warm and resinous, gently leathery, earthy-floral Winter fragrance, balanced by a smooth earthy-woody base.
