Etruscan Water is a 2019 release from luxury niche perfumer Francesca Bianchi, who treats perfumery as "an intellectual process," inspired by "the power of what it means to be human, by the wish to connect with people’s inner life, the desire to spark an emotion in them and make them feel at home in their own bodies, offer solace, or just a quick fix for a bad day." Etruscan Water, a Chypre fragrance, has a scent profile of citrus, aromatic, fresh spicy, earthy, amber, woody, mossy, herbal, green, and powdery notes.


Bergamot, Green Tangerine, Grapefruit, Petitgrain, Basil, Carvi, Immortelle, Jasmin, Iris root, Musk, Ambergris, Labdanum, Vetiver, Oakmoss


From Francesca Bianchi:

Accords: Chypre, citrusy, spicy, powdery
Mood: classic, seductive, exciting, refreshing

In the South of Tuscany, you are approaching an enchanting bay by walking through the most beautiful and intoxicating Mediterranean vegetation. Your skin is warmed up by the heat of the Southern sun, yet you are invigorated by the salty and refreshing smell coming from the sea.

This is an extrait de parfum, so use sparingly as the concentration is 25%. It has a great longevity (an average of 12h).

The Making of Etruscan Water

The inspiration for Etruscan Water comes from two different sources. The first one is my personal memory: being born and raised in Tuscany, we could go to the beach in the South of the region, where hundreds of years ago our forefathers, the Etruscans, used to live.

In order to access to the most stunning, well hidden small bays, and offering the most transparent water, there was a 30 minutes walk through the woods.

These woods are full of wonders! The smell of typical Mediterranean vegetation is charming and, if you are lucky (or unfortunate…) you could bump into a wild boar – or even some remains of the Etruscan civilisation.

The salty, refreshing smell of the sea soothes you from the heat of the sun that is warming up your skin.

The second source of inspiration is my personal research on masterpieces of perfumery, as I have recently been intrigued by the classical masculine citrusy cologne – not the light ones, but those with a strong character.

This is the first release of the line FREEFALL, opening to new directions in my work.

Chester Gibs’ interpretation

'The time bomb
Of your life has come
People may come, people may go
Just as long as the water’s slow
But watch out when you’re
Headed for the waterfall
Dry land is just a love away
Warm sun and a place to lay
I see your future
The water above you calm and clear
People may come, people may go
Just as long as the water’s slow
But watch out when you’re
Headed for the waterfall'
