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.
The title is the incipit of a masterpiece of poetry, The Tyger by William Blake.
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In this composition, Francesca Bianchi sought the perfect balance between two opposing elements and the expression of their contraposition.
She had in mind a post-apocalyptic situation, where traces of a highly sophisticated and refined civilisation survive in the dark and fearful condition of a collapsed and destroyed world.
Blake‘s tiger embodies the two qualities he wanted to represent: sublime and irresistibly attractive on the one hand and terrible and terrifying on the other.
The “fearful symmetry” – a characteristic attributed to the tiger by William Blake – aptly represents this opposition of beautiful perfection and terror.
The perfume is built around a narcotic white floral accord with sweet and fruity facets, which also includes a tuberose absolute.
The base notes feature different types of woods, with smoky and leathery nuances, referring to a post-apocalyptic scenario of destruction, mystery and darkness.
The result of these parts is a shocking fragrance that found in Francesca a very dramatic feeling of sophistication, the kind of contrasting feeling that everything attractive awakens in her.
Olfactory notes: narcotic flowers, honey, peach jam, patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss, oud, leather and heliotropin.
