Mystery is a big part of the romance of perfume. But we never tried to be mysterious. That was one of the conventions of the fragrance industry we wanted to resist. So it's ironic that we often find ourselves in the situation of having to explain what the concept behind Escentric Molecules is. Maybe that's to be expected — it's quite complex.
Modern perfumery began with the synthesis of the first aroma-molecule in 1868. Ever since, it is the invention and isolation of new molecules that have pushed the boundaries of the art. Escentric Molecules embraces this modern heritage where art meets science. Taking a minimalist approach, it focuses on a series of exceptional aroma-molecules, some unknown in nature, others nature-identical, and offers two ways to explore the allure of each one.
Escentric fragrance - a formula
Molecule fragrance - a molecule
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 more radical approach. One that breaks all rules of perfumery. It contains no fragrant ingredients other than the aroma-molecule. Pure and singular. This is fragrance at its most minimal. Its more purist.
The Escentric and Molecule fragrances in each series are sold separately. Designed to be worn by men and women. Expect intrigue.
