Rather than the traditional top-to-bottom fragrance pyramid, Escentric Molecules Escentric 01 focuses on a long, lingering base note composed of warm musk and woody tones.
Iso E Super is a molecule that hovers close to the skin to create an indefinable aura around the wearer. It is characterized by a hyper-modern cedarwood note with a velvety sensation. Perfumer Geza Schön explains its allure: “Iso E Super is one of those skin-sexy scents that makes you want to nestle into it. It’s comforting, cocooning.”
Iso E Super has a marked intermittence. To the wearer, it seems to vanish and then re-appear. This is due to the way it bonds with receptors in the olfactory system, only slowly releasing to make way for a fresh charge of the molecule on the receptors. Iso E Super does not exist in nature. It was created in a laboratory at IFF in 1973.
Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules focuses on Iso E Super, which comprises 65% of the fragrance compound, in an abbreviated formula designed to maximize the molecule’s efflorescence. It also contains lime peel, hedione (green jasmine bud), orris, balsamic notes, and fresh musk.
Please note: Due to the use of naturally harvested ingredients in production, subtle variations in color may be noticeable in this fragrance, occasionally occurring over time. This variation will in no way affect the scent and as a result, we are unable to offer returns or exchanges based on color differences.
