"This is a story of by-gone times about a secret encounter of lovers. It represents the contradictions between sense and sensibility, pruderie and passion. The lovers are full of desire but their education holds them back." - Francesca Bianchi.
Francesca Bianchi perfumes are small batch perfumery using natural essences.
Fragrantica - "It smells more like a 1960s sex lounge, (particularly 1960s because of its contemporary brazen feel) ornamented with whips and leather accessories and unclad women with nipple tassels offering guests drinks, with leather seats and cigarette smoke. This is not sensual. Its dirty. Theres a mighty difference. One is suggestive, alluring, the other one grabs you by the ass and bruises you. it’s not even carnal, it’s vividly kinky. Or, When I say it’s sexual, I mean it in the most animalistic and distilled way. i mean mating. if you will."
Fragrantica - "This is a scent to be deployed strategically, but, it is like something the Guerlain of the 1920's might have designed, but dragged into today, the notes fresher, thicker, more potent.
I honestly admit, initially, the leather blast made me think I had made a mistake but the orris and castoreum, my god a better match has never been made, this is an obscenely sumptuous perfume."
Fragrantica - "It's beautiful, seductive and masterfully blended. I can't tell the notes apart but together they create a harmonious, rich and unique impression of sweetened animal skin. If you'd consider Black Knight the best leather from Francesca, this is without a doubt her best animalics."
