Mysterious and seductive, soft and carnal at the same time. Under my Skin is Francesca's interpretation of the animal theme. This emotional scent, softened by precious iris butter, is human and intimate, as if it comes from your own skin.
Charmed by strong animal scents, she created her own perfume. She came to realise that what she liked in other people's creations was not necessarily what she wanted to create herself.
After adding animal substances that tended to be heavy or sweet or a stable-like, she had to eliminate them little by little to finally arrive at a result that suited her best: a leathery, slightly animalic, powdery, velvety and elegant version.
The name comes from a conversation with an artist and perfume lover, who said that it is as if the fragrance comes from the skin. This concept of 'Under My Skin' reinforced her idea of creating something more subtly 'human' than overtly 'animal'. The core of the fragrance is a combination of animal and leathery notes tamed by iris butter. The base notes consist of Tolu balsam, Peru balsam, tonka bean and various woods.
The final step of the work was the opening, for which she used grapefruit and lavender. She used to be a 'lavender hater', but here it plays a subtle and elegant role. It adds brightness and elegance.
