Francesca Bianchi Perfumes - Tyger Tyger
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
As sublime and irresistibly attractive, terrifying and frightening, William Blake once wrote about the powerful and majestic appearing tiger. Franchesca Bianchi takes up this description in all its complexity, and, in reference to Blake's famous lines, dedicates to it an artfully staged fragrance that allows all its facets to merge energetically and lasciviously.
White flowers draw sweet and fruity, united in a hypnotic chord, over a tuber rose absolute. What remains is a nostalgic, delicately swinging impression, flowery caressing, graceful and bright. An impression that is clearly contrasted with Tyger Tyger's base of smoky and leathery wood notes. Dark and mystical, it complements - stirringly post-apocalyptic - the floral lightness of the opening of Bianchi's arrangement. Bianchi's extreme compositional juxtaposition results in a fragrant scenario of highly dramatic finesse. The energetic attractiveness of the tiger is shaped by tension and contradiction.
