The Black Knight by Francesca Bianchi greets you with the power of a fully equipped, light, and swift battle horse in a full gallop through a fresh and green field of vetiver: its muscles are moving in a tense way, hoofs picking up and throwing pieces of dry earth in the air behind it.
And yet, there is hidden tenderness and fragility that makes him feel – so human.
My review of The Black Knight perfume was first published in Cafleurebon, and this is the version I edited in 2021.
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one –John Lennon, 1971
As simple as these words and piano melody may seem, this is a complex song.
The vision behind it historically runs much deeper, just as the vision behind the perfume Lost in Heaven does, although it presents itself as seemingly simple happiness & well-being providing a fragrance that makes you want to hug the whole world.
That part is true but there’s more to it, so much more. Francesca Bianchi-style more.
My Lost in Heaven review was first published in Cafleurebon, and this is the version edited in 2021.
Ever since I first heard the news about a new addition to the Francesca Bianchi‘s line of perfume, I had itchy fingers, impatient to try her most recent creation. And no wonder, since months felt like years at the time we all lost count of days in a week, and everything stopped almost overnight during March.
Sticky Fingers is available since late June, and now we’re talking!
Better said – rocking that patchouli, and here comes my complete review!
