Francesca Bianchi creates exceptional perfumes, which are an expression of her deepest feelings.
With a very high concentration of perfume, her Extrait de Parfum are coveted all over the world as authentic works of art, which, curiously enough, is the degree that Francesca Bianchi holds.
Encounters by Francesca Bianchi is a fragrance that transcends geographical and cultural boundaries to capture the very essence of encounters between different worlds. This perfumed masterpiece is the result of Francesca’s desire to bring together two seemingly opposing cultures, represented by two iconic materials: the soft and mysterious Iris and the enigmatic Oudh, symbolizing the West and the East respectively.
At the heart of this fragrance, the sophisticated refinement of Iris butter harmoniously blends with Oudh, a substance born from an infection in Aquilaria trees, giving rise to one of the most fascinating and complex scents in perfumery. This meeting of two worlds gives life to a new olfactory creature, an intense, luxurious, and mysterious fragrance.
The Iris, an iconic symbol in Western culture, represents elegance and beauty, while Oudh, revered in Eastern culture for its spiritual significance, brings depth and a connection to the divine. Encounters is a celebration of the diversity and harmony that arises when these two elements intertwine in a unique aromatic dance.
The olfactory pyramid of Encounters is a sensory journey that begins with fresh notes of bergamot, orange, blackcurrant, lavender, and coriander. In the heart, Iris butter joins with rose, angelica, and cinnamon to create a captivating olfactory symphony. Base notes, such as ambergris, castoreum*, Oudh, sandalwood, cedarwood, benzoin, and Peru balsam, provide lasting depth to this exceptional fragrance.
Encounters by Francesca Bianchi is more than just a fragrance; it is a testament to how the fusion of different cultures can give rise to a unique and harmonious beauty. Discover the power of encounters with this exceptional creation.
