“Escentric Molecules celebrates perfumery as the art of chemistry. The fragrances are presented in binary pairs. Each pair explores the qualities of one aroma-molecule in two different ways. The Escentric fragrance in each pair focuses on an exceptional aroma-molecule. The other ingredients in the formula are chosen to enhance this aroma-molecule, amplifying its key qualities. The Molecule fragrance in each pair takes a radically minimalist approach. It contains no odorants other than the aroma-molecule, pure and singular. Stripping away the pretension that often surrounds the fragrance world, Escentric Molecules focuses on what is truly exceptional about perfumery, the aroma-molecules that are the perfumer’s palette.” – a note from the brand. Designer Escentric Molecules has 17 perfumes in our fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 2006 and the newest is from 2021. The nose who worked on the fragrances is Geza Schoen.
