Perfume review: Encounters with Francesca Bianchi
Perfumer Francesca Bianchi created in 2023 Encounters, an elegant combination of orris and Oudh. Is this a 'dirty iris', is it a relaxed Francesca creation or does it have a certain transparancy?
Perfume Lounge's Chester visited Francesca in het lab to discuss how it smells and what her inspiration was.
An interesting discussion unravels on the non-importance of analyzing a fragrance whilst wearing, instead of simply enjoying the mood and emotions a scent can convey to you.
