SOLD OUT! Join us for a LIVE LAUNCH with Geza Schoen of Escentric Molecules

Join our first Perfume Society DIGITAL EVENT with renowned perfumer Geza Schoen, in conversation with Jo Fairley, Co-Founder of The Perfume Society.

We will be celebrating the hotly anticipated THREE NEW M+ FRAGRANCES from Escentric Molecules, each one based on the global bestseller Molecule 01, but each with their own twist of Iris, Mandarin and Patchouli.

The idea is that you can SNIFF THE M+ RANGE LIVE WITH GEZA and Jo: when you purchase your ticket, we will send you the M+ Discovery Set, worth £20 and included in your £20 ticket price. You will then also receive a Zoom link, for the night.

You can also send in your questions ahead of the event and hear them answered live by Geza! It’s going to be a fabulously fragrant evening and we can’t wait for you to join us!



As Geza Schoen says:Molecule 01 is an exceptional molecule: radiant, velvety, cocooning. It’s mysteriously effective on its own as Molecule 01, But I started to wonder if there might be another way to play with it. What if I could take the molecule and add just one other beautiful ingredient and see how they danced together in the bottle?’

When: Thursday 25th March, 7pm – 7.45pm UK time.

Where: Zoom, sign up via Eventbrite (link below) and you will be sent the Zoom link.

What’s included: The NEW M+ Discovery Set (sent two days prior to the event)  and live smelling session with Geza & Jo. You can also send in your questions ahead of the event by submitting them below, or by emailing them to [email protected], and hear them answered live by Geza!

My question for Geza Schoen...


During the event we will delve into the creation of three NEW fragrances which launch 23rd March 2021:

Molecule 01 + Iris  Geza says: I have had a long-standing love affair with iris. Every Escentric fragrance has an iris note somewhere in there. To me, iris is luxury. The iris pallida absolue I’ve used here is one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery. You can find iris extracts for way less than that. But they do not have the great and subtle beauty of this absolue. It’s radical to put this much in a fragrance. The sillage is fantastic. This is a bomb, but a subtle bomb.

Molecule 01 + Mandarin  Geza says: ‘Mandarin is all about the instant hit. It’s so alive, the way it radiates off the skin with that citrus zestiness. But there’s more to mandarin, it’s very fruity and aromatic as well. It’s a beautiful ingredient. Its transparency means that it vanishes quickly. I’ve touched it up with a little extra shading to extend it, adding a mandarin ingredient used in flavourings to give it super-juiciness. Then as it begins to fade, Molecule 01 syncs in, bringing a warm, erogenous feeling to play with that zinging freshness. That’s unusual – for a topnote ingredient like Mandarin and a base note like Iso E Super to dance together naked like this, without other notes coming between them. And then the mandarin is almost gone and you are left with the elevated simplicity of Molecule 01.’

Molecule 01 + Patchoul  Geza says: ‘Patchouli is a unique natural. Unlike 99% of perfume ingredients, we associate it with a particular period, with the sixties and seventies and that bohemian spirit. It has a cool, rather aloof woodiness to it. I love it for its moody beauty. I’ve  used two qualities of patchouli here. The biggest chunk is Patchouli Coeur which is a very clean, soft patchouli oil fraction with the camphor-like top note removed. I have also included a patchouli oil from Indonesia to round it out with a little bit of a top note. The result is a sophisticated, clean patchouli that pairs fantastically well with Molecule 01.’
