Sleek, minimalist cases for maximum portability. Escentric 04 by Escentric Molecules is a Woody fragrance for women and men. Escentric 04 was launched in 2017. The nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen.
Each metal case is blasted with stainless steel ‘sand’ to burnish the surface to a soft lustre. It is then anodised for high durability.
The upper face of the Escentric 04 case lid is stamped with the letter e in binary code: 01100101 and the number 04.
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.
The fragrances from Escentric Molecules are presented in binary pairs, exploring one aroma-molecule in two different ways. The Escentric fragrance highlights the unique character of the aroma-molecule with ingredients that enhance its key facets. The Molecule fragrance is radically minimalist.
The heart is orris with a ‘fresh soft rose’ composed from four different rose ingredients. The drydown is balsamic and woody with Javanol in combination with the somewhat sweeter sandalwood molecule, Polysantol.
“In the other Escentric fragrances I used a huge amount of the Molecule,” says Geza Schoen. “But Javanol is like truffles. A few slices of truffle shaved on top of your pasta are enough to transport you to heaven.”
Consequently Javanol and Polysantol together make up 15% of Escentric 04.
