    Default Francesca Bianchi Etruscan Water

    There seems to be a thread dedicated to each of Francesca Bianchi's perfumes, minus this one.

    Are you familiar with Etruscan Water? What are your thoughts on this creation?

    Never enjoyed the samples from this house.

    I tried a few from this house but can't recall if this was one of them.

    My favorite. Francesca has a talent developing unique compositions. Possible reason for it not being in the database is because it is the newest along with Sex and the Sea Neroli.

    Just picked this one up and I really like it. Citrusy and sensual at the same time, very unique and wearable. I have not tried any of Francesca's other creations but this is a winner for me.

    I keep trying them, hoping to find one I can love. So far, I have a hard time with the peculiar sort of burned body odor accord that she tends to use to make some of her fragrances "animalic."

    Just ordered all of her samples. But I’m most interested in The Black Knight. Will definitely let you know what I think when I test!

    Hmm. Somehow I never experienced it that way. Different strokes for different folks I guess. It’s probably just not your bag. I don’t enjoy Sea Neroli nor The Dark Side so this house is just like any others with its share of hits and misses.

    I really wanted to like her stuff but alas, most of it just seems rather unbalanced and synthetic smelling. I presume she uses bases (and not very good ones at that!) rather than making her own accords judging by the particulalry noxious smelling soapy-synthic pineapple/coconut in her Sex and the Sea.
    Haven't tried Etruscan Water but judging by the other creations I'm not getting my hopes up. Sorry if this is a bit harsh.
