Escentric 02

2ml

FAMILY: FRESH
TOP NOTES: ambroxan, almududler
HEART NOTES: jasmine, iris
BASE NOTES: iso e super, hedione
Ambroxan has a subtle sensual quality with a radiant, long-lasting drydown.

Escentric 02 contains 13.5% Ambroxan* in a formula designed to amplify its mineral note. It also contains hedione (green jasmine bud), a ‘gin and tonic’ accord, “and a hint of the Austrian lemonade called almdudler”. Geza Schoen describes the final effect as ‘super-longlasting freshness into the drydown, together with a subtle sensuality.’

*13.5% is the maximum percentage of Ambroxan that can be dissolved in a fragrance compound. Any more, and the Ambroxan begins to crystallize out of the solution. X

Escentric 03

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: CHYPRE
TOP NOTES: ginger root, lime, green peppercorn
HEART NOTES: tea, jasmine, iris
BASE NOTES: leather, cedar, sandalwood, vetiver, musk

Escentric 03 is a tribute to the more familiar side of vetiver, through its dark, slightly exotic woodiness. The fragrance opens with a burst of freshness - the ginger root is joined by top notes of green peppercorn and Mexican lime. The heart of orris is surrounded by Egyptian jasmine and soft tea notes. Then, at the base of the fragrance, the slightly bitter notes of vetiver 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 a signature of perfumer Geza Schoen. And, because this maverick creator also excels at unexpected associations, you may even detect a fugitive tang of ginger ale. X

BASE NOTES: vetiver

Vertiveryle acetate, a refined vetiver note, is celebrated at its purest in Molecule 03. Through a complicated chemical process the darker and smokier shades of vetiver oil are removed, leaving a smooth, woody and slightly grassy smell. X

Escentric 04

Escentric 04

2ml

FAMILY: WOODY
TOP NOTES: pink grapefruit, juniper, pink pepper
HEART NOTES: oris, soft rose
BASE NOTES: javanol

Javanol is a sandalwood-type molecule that retains the radiance and endurance of natural sandalwood, but is sheer and transparent like no sandalwood in nature.

Escentric 04 focuses on Javanol in a formula that highlights the grapefruit accent in the molecule. The result is a uniquely fresh interpretation of a sandalwood fragrance, fizzing with crisp, bitter topnotes of pink grapefruit peel with added zest of lime. Juniper and pink pepper give an extra shot of freshness, and marijuana brings out the softer quality of the grapefruit pith.
