Perfumer Geza Schoen launched the Escentric Molecules 03 series in 2010. They are made at a time when Geza thinks many perfumes were too stubborn.
The 03 series is significantly different from 01 and 02 and is not what one expects from Escentric Molecules.
However, Geza has maintained that the 03 scents also contain only 1 single molecular substance.
The substance is called Vetiveryl Acetate and is 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.
The scent comes in a beautiful glass vial. It is part of the design that it has no lid. Therefore, it is a good idea to keep the box if you need to have the scent with you.
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.
