Francesca Bianchi Sticky Fingers Extrait de Parfum

Francesca Bianchi Extrait de Parfum opens with a darker, dirtier patchouli that’s joined with plush leather-based, dry woods, and cinnamon that later discover themselves working over a musky, considerably animalic word. There’s additionally a powdery component that made the patchouli appear dusty at occasions. The drydown is much less leathery however remained powdery with some floralcy and spiced, resinous, and a contact candy.

It’s described as a “luxurious and chic Patchouli” with a “glowing spicy opening [that] then reveals leather-based and tobacco, all infused in iris butter.” The notes are listed as: coriander, cinnamon, iris butter, patchouli, sandalwood, heliotrope, musk, castoreum, leather-based, tobacco, and tonka bean.

The opening bouquet was spiced, darkish and damp patchouli, however inside a couple of minutes, it was dominated easy leather-based that was drier, worn with drier woods. The cinnamon re-emerged after 5 minutes to billow over a extra powdery leather-based, after which a musky, animalic word appeared to run beneath. It was a darker, heavier scent that leaned powdery, smoky, and leathery with notable muskiness over an earthy patchouli.

There was a spiced sweetness that lurked beneath all the things after quarter-hour of improvement on my pores and skin, however it remained a musky, powdery leather-based with hints of smoky tobacco and woodiness. After an hour, dry, nearly dusty, patchouli began to develop into extra dominant over powderiness, however the musk and leather-based lingered within the background.

It appeared nearly ambery after a number of hours on my pores and skin, much less leathery however powdery, calmly floral, and nonetheless on the extra animalic facet. It was calmly spiced and resinous, slightly candy, and considerably powdery.


For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case. 

I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be conscious of when a overview was made, e.g. a overview from 2010 might not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.


It lasted for seven hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been each lighter and nearer to the physique from the get-go.

Private Ideas

The extra powdery musk was stronger and endured for too lengthy over the phases to be a winner for me; the duo was higher paired with the spices and dryness than when it’s paired with heavier florals. For individuals who take pleasure in these notes, although, it appeared fairly well-blended and nuanced.
