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.
Embracing this modern heritage where art meets science, perfumer Geza Schoen launched Escentric Molecules 2006. Aiming to provoke comment on the way scent is marketed today, Schoen created Molecule perfume using only one ingredient – a substance that enhances the wearer’s natural pheromones. The revolutionary results are cult, unisex products such as Molecule 01 that smell different yet no less delicious on every wearer. 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.
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 the rules of perfumery. It contains no fragrant ingredients other than the aroma-molecule, pure and singular. This is fragrance at its most minimal, its most purist. The Escentric and Molecule fragrances in each series are sold separately. As a reflection of the brand’s fresh unconventional approach, each bottle is packaged and printed differently.
