Francesca Bianchi Perfumes – The Dark Side
The dark side of the perfumer herself, and of others too: a sweet, balsamic glaze of slick dark woods over a pile of smoking resins, leather, and precious woods that point firmly in the direction of a smoldering sexuality. The miles-deep growl of smoky cedar, vetiver, and leathery styrax makes us think of mysterious oils and incense found in souks far, far away from home. Once safely home, these strange elixirs emit the erotic memory of being held captive in the dark, searching gaze of strangers. Tender little violet flowers preserved in clear honey baste the woods and incense in a slick of irresistible sweetness, and a thread of iris powder striates the structure with its silvery, cold light. Honey and spice and all things nice – The Dark Side is earthily sexual but also tender and refined.
