The origin of Under My Skin
Under My Skin is my interpretation of the animalic theme. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Estelle Navarrete (verified owner) –
The opening is very strong, too strong for me, but after 30 minutes, the scent is addictive.
Make sure you don’t spray it too close from your skin though.
Smells extremely sexual, almost like puss* during sex in hot weather.
It is a dirtier version of Sex and the Sea, which is very sexual too but in a more ‘out of the shower’, tropical way.
The projection is pretty regular (1m-2m) so you can still wear it in the day time but be prepared to get some comments, looks and people getting closer to you lol.
The sillage is great and the scent stays on my skin for 8-10 hours.
Can be feminine as masculine, I don’t particularly like it on clothes, I feel like it’s really something to be worn on skin. Can’t wait to try the oil version.

I actually blind bought this perfume (because of the notes and reviews) and immediately fell in love with it. It is an absolute masterpiece. It’s the most sensual (and sexual) scent I have ever experienced. I’m blown away.

I have under my skin and the dark side and love them both. Great for the colder months and lasts forever. I’m already looking at buying another as you can’t go wrong with any of these perfumes.

My absolute favorite fragrance . So much depth and evolving character – true artistry at work here. For me, it’s almost narcotic. Francesca, mi piace molto.
Most loved perfume from your artworks. For me – it’s a masterpiece.
kaisaimmonen (verified owner) –
This is amazing and addictive. It melds into the skin. I’ve been very impressed with all FB perfumes I’ve tried so far, and this is the first full bottle I bought. For sure I will get at least a couple more, the house style really resonates with me.
Johan Sebastian Grisales Arboleda –
Very sexy, unique, good performance, good quality products. 5 Stars.
Clive De Castro (verified owner) –
A masterpiece. I sampled this, wore it once, and loved it. I bought a full bottle a few weeks later. After wearing it again following my purchase I loved it so much that I ordered a second full bottle immediately the next day. This is a warm, spicy and addictive scent which gives me the sensation that I’m wearing a full length, wooly, winter coat of sexiness. Intoxicating is the subtitle of this one.

A complex, wonderful, deep fragrance, that evolves from its opening to its drydown.

I LOVE this fragrance! Under My Skin makes your body radiate with a heady intoxicating scent that is possibly one of the most incredible aromas I’ve ever had the pleasure to smell. The fragrance envelops you from the first spray with its combination of beautiful notes, which over the course of the wear (which is infinite by the way) almost feels like another heart beat throbbing under your skin. In some ways, this fragrance smells like a sexual encounter you are yet to experience, a secret liason, or the meeting of two kindred souls, and as such exudes an erotic and sensual haze all around you. Yet, at the same time, there is a comforting but mysterious familiarity to this scent. I have no doubt in my mind that I will also purchase the sublime oil. Francessca, thank you for creating this masterpiece and please please never stop producing it for us either.

Under my Skin is all about leather and spices, supported by the rest of the notes. This perfume is an olfactory experience.
