Bellissima recensione di Luca Ramacciotti sul mio THE BLACK KNIGHT!! grazie!!! #repost from @lucaramacciotti The Black Knight è un profumo ispirato al personaggio storico Giovanni Dalle Bande Nere, un capitano italiano del Rinascimento. È palesemente un profumo maschile, talmente da uomo che credo su una pelle femminile potrebbe risultare esplosivo. Sinceramente mi ha molto colpito ed incuriosito l’anima di rosa bulgara, il sentore burroso dell’iris o del narciso (per non parlare di quello del miele) perché creano un contrasto interessante con tutti gli altri (artemisia, cumino, legno di cedro, vetiver, muschio di quercia, patchouli o cuoio). Siamo in un campo di battaglia, l’odore di cuoio, bardamenti, sudore freddo dell’attesa si mescolano a quelli dei fiori calpestati dagli zoccoli dei cavalli che scalpitano, fremono percependo l’attesa che vibra nell’aria. Il soldato è in tensione, la cavalcatura si muove sul posto irrequieta. Il sentore dell’uomo e dell’animale si mescolano, si uniscono in un sentore tanto forte quanto incredibilmente raffinato, intenso e piacevole. Un capolavoro realizzato da @francesca_w che riesce perfettamente a ricreare l’idea di un uomo che “non deve chiedere mai” e che forse la notte prima della battaglia è stato con una cortigiana di cui conserva addosso ancora il profumo di rosa. #profumo#perfume#theblackknight
Favorite aldehydes for you guys? So damn stuck home that going out for buying groceries is currently my wildest dream. In such a case, I am self medicating with a large dose of aldehydes: - Lanvin Arpège some unidentifiable vintage version - Chanel nr 5 Eau Première (I agree, refill needed dramatically asap). - Hermès Calèche Soie de parfum (I know, she really misses the classic Calèche) - Andrea Maack Craft - a parallel world besides the above-mentioned classy ones, this is more metallic / elemi direction.
More on Cuir Soyeux ! Thanks 🙏🏻 #Repost@goodkingbob with @get_repost ・・・ Cuir Soyeux is a limited edition fragrance of 150 bottles created by the artful Francesca Bianchi. The fragrance was created to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Perfume Lounge Perfumery in Amsterdam. Cuir Soyeux is a hauntingly beautiful iris leather fragrance. Picture yourself driving in a beautiful picturesque countryside filled with endless fields of iris flowers, narcissus and magnolia. This heavenly smell seems to amalgamate with the silky smooth beautiful leather jacket you are wearing. After a few more minutes driving down this beautiful sun filled road, you start to smell the sun filled hay that lays in the fields, and after a long nice drive it’s time to take a short walk and settle down in a quite place to sink in the beautiful view of the flower fields. As you lay your leather jacket on the inviting green grass you pull out a Madagascar bourbon vanilla bean out of your shirt pocket to mix with your beverage, creating a creamy vanilla hay like smell that completes a full olfactory journey around you from the flower fields, the leather jacket and the vanilla bourbon bean. This is how I picture this truly mesmerizing fragrance that lasts for hours on your skin, sometimes throwing a whiff of iris or a whiff of hay whilst the silky leather note wraps smoothly around your skin. Francesca Bianchi is a genius she is able to take your senses to another world. Her creations are unlike anything I have ever experienced in a fragrance and Cuir Soyeux is my teleportation fragrance to take me to the happiest place on earth in any season on any day. Cuir Soyeux is simply an outstanding feel good fragrance. It is a masterpiece of comfort and joy.

Absolutely inspiring ♥️♥️♥️ Thanks 🙏🏻 #Repost@goodkingbob with @get_repost ・・・ The Dark Side is a journey to enlightenment... It is a journey and a different experience for every individual. The first spritz on your arm feels like an assault to the senses making it difficult to distinguish in the first few seconds what the dominant note will be. As it gracefully settles on your skin you start picking up the the violet and iris along with the incense and spices followed later by the honey and amber. You might get the impression that The Dark Side is a gourmand fragrance but it doesn’t seem to fit that category. Francesca Bianchi’s The Dark Side is much, much smarter to be placed in a particular category as it creates its own category! There are two battles at play in this fragrance the darkness and light. Whilst the incense and dark spices feel melancholic they are soon beautifully mellowed down with the delicious honey that throws the much needed light in the darkness of this scent. After a few hours of different notes slowly changing on your skin Francesca Bianchi’s The Dark Side now, almost feels religious, spiritual and personal. It's a unisex journey from sadness to enlightenment. What started as a battle of dark notes etched on your skin soon transforms the soul into a higher state of consciousness that completes a full 360 degrees journey from darkness to light. The Dark Side is nothing short than art in a bottle.

Isn’t this picture gorgeous?! And the review is even better. Feel good with yourself ♥️ #Repost@goodkingbob with @get_repost ・・・ The picture you see here is my bottle of Lost In Heaven with some editing added in. Upon my first spray of Lost In Heaven I was equally shocked, confused and floored all at the same time! Shocked because the initial blast of this fragrance is right in your face to say to you...are you ready to be free? Confused because I couldn’t understand the intensity of the ingredients all at once and finally floored because after a few minutes I knew that Francesca Bianchi had done it again! She has created yet another masterpiece that will be talked and discussed in the fragrance communities and beyond. Lost in Heaven is a fragrance that lives up to its name, it’s a fragrance that wants you to be free, it wants you to be who you are and it delivers this attitude in spades. The beautiful floral notes that opens the fragrance feels like stepping inside the most beautiful garden your mind can imagine, orange blossom and jasmine just surround you creating an aura around you that makes your mind feel a sense of positivity and goodness, the opening notes stimulate your brain and give you the sense of anything is possible..of course because we are in heaven territory and anything is possible...! For those gentlemen who are worried that it might lean a bit feminine, I can tell you that it is a completely unisex fragrance and the florals I mentioned soon start to step a bit aside to pave way for the second phase of the fragrance where it now starts to turn animalic and super sexy! The orris, labdanum, ambergris and opoponax start to kick in, making the fragrance a much more unique and balanced fragrance. By now you will be completely hypnotized and floored by the massive beauty it starts to throw at you and you will understand why it is called lost in heaven. Lost In Heaven is a very unique fragrance and nothing like it has ever been created. To create a fragrance that makes you feel free, self confident, powerful and above all very special is nothing short of true craftsmanship from a perfumer that makes fragrance feel and look like artful masterpiec
