Francesca Bianchi Unspoken Musk Review: Tamed Carnal Desires

Francesca Bianchi is a brand that is known for her love of raw animalics and sensual imagery through her aptly named perfumes. When I was offered a sample of her newest release, Unspoken Musk, I just had to try it. This is my first foray into a brand that I have heard so much about and I must admit that I was super excited to try it. I am thrilled to be able to review this one for you and I hope that you are as excited as I am!

Unspoken Musk begins with a naughty blast of musk that is akin to some very light body odor. This isn’t in your face or repulsive, it’s the sort that makes you curious. That genuine interest rewards you with a bit of salty immortelle that makes you think of sweat when combined with the musk. A fresh blast of bergamot gives way to powdery iris, that is reminiscent of freshly washed skin. The musk and iris are interesting choices because they are opposites, and it seems to be a battle between clean and dirty.

As the base reveals itself, a creamy tonka bean comes out and adds some much-needed sweetness. The musk has been tamed by the iris and takes a back seat, with only a little bit of sensuality left to spare. A velvety leather aroma expels from the clever use of castoreum, which keeps the animalic sexiness alive, but in a much more palatable way for most people.

The fragrance boasts a very long-lasting trail, but the projection is soft and almost intimate. This is a personal fragrance that is made for you to indulge in. While others will still catch a whiff of it, it is too shy to shout. It’s a fragrance that only wants to embrace those that are allowed into your private space. This would last an entire workday, but would you dare wear it for such a thing? You might just divulge your undisclosed emotions.

Unspoken Musk Review

While I do think it veers more into classic feminine territory with my personal thoughts, I am delighted to wear this as a man, so I am going to say that it is quite unisex. You could easily swap my next paragraph for a man, and it would certainly fit.  

Unspoken Musk parallels a classy woman using an expensive soap that has a wild side to her. It’s a contrast of forbidden thoughts wrapped in angel wings. It’s the night that lingers in the back of your mind while you work that 9-5. It’s a perfectly wearable and well-done scent that evokes an inkling of mystery. It’s more tamed than I expected, but that doesn’t make it trivial. It certainly has an intriguing story to tell us.

All of this can be had for a very affordable price. The quality surpasses that price point, offering a natural smelling scent, even with the use of synthetics. It’s an expertly crafted blend. But it’s not for everyone. This one softly whispers in your ear, and you must be open to hearing it in order to understand the allure. However, once you do, you might just become enamored. I am certainly interested to try more of her offerings now.
