This range of unisex fragrances was launched in London in 2006 and has since gained a loyal worldwide following. Geza Schoen, the Berlin-based perfumer behind Escentric Molecules, introduced a revolutionary new concept: two fragrances created together. One—the Escentric—is a complex synthesis of multiple fragrance notes. The other—the Molecule—pays homage to the single note defining the personality of that synthesis and is the essence of simplicity. 3.4 fl. oz.
Escentric 01: Sharing a high concentration of aroma molecule Iso E Super with its sister scent Molecule 01, Escentric 01 adds a base of soft sandalwood and cedarwood with notes of zesty pink pepper, tart lime peel, and the smoky warmth of orris incense.
Molecule 01: Consisting mostly of Iso E Super, a scent molecule recognizable for its subtle sandalwood and cedarwood fragrance. Because Molecule 01 is an aroma chemical rather than a perfume, it behaves differently—you have to wear it to understand it. If you feel that it smells of nothing, be patient and keep using it. The velvety woody note is highly sensitive to body chemisty and twists and turns as it evolves, combining with the wearer's own natural scent to create an extraordinary alluring quality that is wholly unique.
Escentric 02: The 02 pair of scents share a high concentration of the aroma chemical Ambroxen, a synthetic form of the prohibitively expensive and costly fragrance ingredient ambergris, but Escentric 02 adds notes of vetiver and muscone, a touch of orris, elderflower, and the jasmine-like hedione to the light, mineral base. A light, sparkling and pleasantly brisk fragrance.
Molecule 02: Consisting mostly of Ambroxen, a synthetic form of the prohibitively expensive and costly fragrance ingredient ambergris, Molecule 01 has a light, transparent mineral note. Because Molecule 02 is an aroma chemical rather than a perfume, it behaves differently—you have to wear it to understand it. If you feel that it smells of nothing, be patient and keep using it. This light mineral scent is highly sensitive to body chemistry; a true "skin scent" that is both present and elusive.
Escentric 03: Sharing the vetiver-forward aroma chemical vetiveryle acetate with Molecule 03, this fragrance adds additional notes for a fresh, spicy scent with warm, balsamic undertones. Top notes of ginger root, green peppercorn, lime. Heart notes of Egyptian jasmine and soft tea. Base notes of vetiver, sandalwood, cedar, leather, musk.
Molecule 03: This scent is primarily comprised of vetiveryle acetate, a clean classic vetiver note, with hints of grapefruit. Molecule 03 opens with a sparkling brightness that develops into a rooty earthiness. As it melts into your skin, it contrasts with the slightly sweet and very green heart that is a hallmark of vetiver.
