This is my personal interpretation of the animalic theme: not loud but whispered, an elegant powdery leathery scent, more human than animalic. The title comes from a conversation with an artist, who told me it is as if the perfume emanates from the skin, rather than being sprayed on: which totally fit the intimate concept of the perfume. Read more…

Read more on the origin of Under My Skin:

Under My Skin is my interpretation of the animalic theme. I started working on it around 2 years ago. I was charmed by strong animalic scents, and I tried to do my own; but I had to realize that what I like in other’s creations is not necessarily what I like to create myself.

So after adding animalic materials going into the heavy or sweet or stable-like direction, I had to eliminate them little by little, and arrive to this solution which suits me the best: a leathery, slightly animalic, powdery one, a velvety and elegant take. It goes along with my personality and my style and when I finally realized that this was my way, I was finally happy and relieved.

The name comes from a conversation with an artist and fragrance lover, who said it is as if the scent emanates from the skin. This concept of ‘Under My Skin’ reinforced my path of going into something more subtly ’human’ than overtly ‘animal’. The core of the scent is a combination of animalic and leathery notes tamed by iris butter (at 15% irone!). After working on this core, I worked on the base notes, made up by Tolu Balsam, Peru Balsam, Tonka Bean and several kind of woods.

Last step of the job was the opening, where I used grapefruit and lavender. I used to be a ‘Lavender hater’: but here it plays a subtle and elegant part. I was amazed how nicely it matched this scent, adding brightness and elegance.

    This is the sexiest fragrance I have met so far. Mystical, intimate.

    Under My Skin is sex in a bottle. It is so gorgeous and deep. There is nothing else like it out there, and it has quickly become one of my all time favorites.

  3. Gilles B. (verified owner)

    Under My Skin is a Masterpiece, strong, deep, magical it is very long lasting and has a huge sillage, so delicious I could literally eat it or drink it. I highly recommend this perfume.

    i first bought the sample set, which promptly arrived. all 5 fragrances I tested were outstanding in their longevity and their complexity. all 5 really great quality. I then bought a big bottle of Sex & the Sea, which I liked best (but the decision was not an easy one). it also arrived very fast. i am now continuing to enjoy what is left of my frequently used samples and it is very likely that I will come back to Francesca for more/ samples of her two new fragrances. Her fragrances are unique gems and HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!!!!! BEWARE 🙂

    I bought angels dust it’s absolutely beautiful,I’ve never smelled anything like this and I love it.I also got samples of the rest of the collection and the only problem I have is what one will I get next they are all gorgeous and I want them all.Thank you Francesca for the beautiful collection of perfumes.

    I purchased Under My Skin after reading a wonderful review on Eau My Soul (fragrance group on FB).
    Eau My Goodness this is an absolute masterpiece. And thanks to generous samples it will not be my last purchase.

  8. Luis Garcia

    I love this fragrance, and I love that people come to smell me, ask me intrigued about this perfume. It is very fun to go into a meeting and see how people start to see where that addictive smell comes from and when they discover me how they gradually get closer and closer to invading my “living space” in a funny way.

    I highly recommend this perfume, Francesca with her mails, her fast shipping and the details she has had, has made it a great shopping experience for me.

    Francesca Bianqui, me encanta tu trabajo y estilo con la creación de tus perfumes.
    Under my skin es un perfume con una personalidad, composición compleja y única, para mi es adictiva, no he olido nada igual ni parecido, intensa y duradera, de una calidad excepcional, es una de mis fragancias preferidas.

    I bought Under My Skin and i became my favorite cologne. It’s super sexy aphrodisiac cologne I love it. I also like the Dark Side and Sex and the Sea love them but Under My Skin its the best out off all colognes I have ever tried in my life.. I still want to try the rest of Francesca Bianchi’s colognes.

  12. durax4 (verified owner)

    I think Under My Skin is the perfect fragrance! It’s not mainstream but garners compliment, it doesn’t smell like any of the 150+ other fragrances I own, it’s opens loud yet lives quietly on my skin for 48 hours surviving a shower and 2 stressful work days. It’s totally unique but feels like a familiar blanket enveloping me in the perfect cozy scent.

  13. Saury Karine (verified owner)

    Parmi mes 3 échantillons ( Lost in heaven, angel’s dust et under my skin ), c’est celui qui m’a tout de suite marquée. Il est chaud, réconfortant, addictif…. Un parfum de peau chaude, avec un côté ambré… Je l’adore. Les 3 parfums sont de petites merveilles, ils sentent divinement bon. Bravo Francesca !

    Sex in a bottle ! An Opulent, luxurious fragrance that certainly grabs peoples attention. It’s complex , develops beautifully and is of real quality.
