Perfumer Geza Schoen launched the Escentric Molecules 03 series in 2010. The
03 series is significantly different from 01 and 02 and is not what one expects from Escentric Molecules. This is deliberate, as Geza Schoen at this time thinks that too many perfumes were too feces.
The 03 series contains only 1 single molecular substance called Vetiveryl Acetate. A refined vetiver note.
Escentric 03 a tribute to the more familiar side of vetiver. Its dark, green and slightly exotic tree fragrance.
The scent consists of 65% Vetiveryl Acetate and is additionally added some roots.
The scent opens with a sparkling freshness - ginger root meets top notes of green peppercorns and Mexican lime. The heart's orris root wraps itself in Egyptian jasmine and soft tea notes. In the bass note, the bitter vetiver notes are softened by rich notes of sandalwood, cedar, leather and musk.
The overall impression is spicy but fresh and with warm balmy undertones, like a classic Chypre scent.
Escentric 03 is sensual, but without sweetness - one of the special characteristics of Escentric Molecules. And the scent designer's excellent ability to create unexpected associations allows you to sense a fleeting scent of ginger ale.
This 30 ml. scent comes in a metal box so you can easily carry Escentic 03 with you on the go.
The scent is unisex and can be used by both women and men.
Bonus info: The
green shades of the packaging are inspired by Northern Lights. The scent is a tribute to Scandinavia, Scandinavia and is reminiscent of the deep forests of northern Norway.
