DETAILS

Perfumer Geza Schoen conceived Escentric Molecules as a deliberate, provocative comment on the way fragrance is made and marketed today and with the intent to de-mystify the whole process.

The proposal was to launch of two scents simultaneously; Escentric, a heady synthesis of different ingredients (the traditional concept of fragrance) and Molecule, an homage to the single note the aroma-molecule which determined the character of the Escentric synthesis.The complex-sounding concept was simple in practice. The aroma-molecule on which the original pair of fragrances was based was Iso E Super . Escentric 01 used Iso E Super in an unprecedented concentration (65 per cent) together with other ingredients, including pink pepper, lime-peel and orris incense. Molecule 01, on the other hand, contained only Iso E Super. It was, if you like, the purist s version of Escentric 01.Schoen used a graphic design analogy by way of comparison. Molecule is to perfume as Bauhaus is to Baroque.

Escentric 03 is a tribute to the more familiar side of vetiver: its darker, slightly exotic woodiness. It opens with a burst of freshness top notes of ginger root, green peppercorn, Mexican lime. The heart of the fragrance is orris surrounded by Egyptian jasmine and soft tea notes. The slightly bitter notes of vetiverat the base are smoothed by rich amber shades of sandalwood, cedar, leather and musk. The overall impression is spicy but fresh with warm balsamic undertones, like a traditional chypre. It s sensuous without sweetness, which is something of a Schoen signature.
