A FORMULA

Escentric Molecules fragrances are presented in binary pairs. Each pair explores the qualities of one aroma-molecule in two different ways.

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 radically minimalist approach. It contains no odorants other than the aroma-molecule, pure and singular.

The Escentric Molecules 02 series explores the ambroxan molecule. This is the man made version of the real ambroxan found in ambergris, as the real thing is costly to extract and is rare. Google ambergris if you don’t know what it is. You’re probably in for a surprise. Here I have Escentric 02 to open my mind. To enhance ambroxan, it contains orris, elderflower extract and hedione (green jasmine bud).

On the open spray, it’s quite fresh, clean and slightly overpowering. It does have that gin and tonic smell with a citrus twist, and kind of makes me want a Hendrick’s and tonic. It’s like I can taste it. When it dries down, it’s the opposite – warm, subtle sensuality and calm. It’s quite captivating. No gin and tonic whatsoever. I wouldn’t say this is like a perfume that leaves a trail, it’s more like a my skin but better smell. One of those where people can smell it when they’re up close or gives you a hug.

When I had thought it had disappeared, others could smell it. Exciting in it’s own way. I can’t really put a timeframe because of this but can say it is long lasting on the skin! I’ve worn this with other perfumes and it helps lift and enhance those perfumes. Oh I feel like a scientist.

I’m really not sure what I think of it. It is growing on me though. I’m still perplexed by this but really intrigued and would still wear it. I must admit, it was hard writing this post up, but it’s one of those where you have to try it out with an open mind.

This is designed to be for both men and women so don’t fear it being too feminine nor too manly. It’s neither. This is the travel size refill. It also comes in 100ml. You can read more on Escentric Molecules.

    It is really difficult to promote perfumes online because we need the sense of smell. The reaction of perfume is skin is also essential.

  14. 30th September 2016 / 1:05 am

    As many has said above, I have not also heard about this product before. It will be nice giving a try. Thanks for sharing

  21. 30th September 2016 / 5:49 pm

    It sounds very scientific! My mummy likes to smell her own perfume so would want the smell to have staying power and would be worried others could smell it and she'd be immune! Sounds intriguing though x

  22. 30th September 2016 / 7:31 pm

    This sounds like and interesting scented product. Love the inclusion of the science part 😉

    I haven't tried this brand of perfume before. It sounds like a really good perfume especially for the season.

    That's interesting that the scent changes so much when its wet, lol I like to find a good fragrance…makes me happy.

  33. 6th October 2016 / 2:21 pm

    These sounds very fancy indeed…I do like unisex fragrances, I find that they generally last longer on the skin than typically female fragrances!
