(100 ml/3.4oz Eau de Parfum natural spray)
Escentric 03 is a tribute to the more familiar side of vetiver: its darker, slightly exotic woodiness.
It opens with a burst of freshness – top notes of ginger root, green peppercorn, Mexican lime. The heart of the fragrance is orris surrounded by Egyptian jasmine and soft tea notes. The slightly bitter notes of vetiver at the base are smoothed by rich amber shades of sandalwood, cedar, leather and musk. The overall impression is spicy but fresh with warm balsamic undertones, like a traditional chypre. It’s sensuous without sweetness, which is something of a Schoen signature.

Escentric Molecules was launched in 2006 as a challenge. Geza Schoen, a Berlin-based perfumer with a long track record in the fragrance industry, wanted to make a deliberately provocative comment on the way fragrance is made and marketed today. He was keen to de-mystify the whole process. So his proposal was this: the simultaneous launch of two scents, one a heady synthesis of different ingredients (which is how most people would understand the concept of fragrance), the other, an homage to the single note – the aroma-molecule – which determined the personality of that synthesis.
