Escentric 01 focuses on Iso E Super at 65% of the fragrance compound in an abbreviated formula designed to maximise the molecule’s efflorescence. It contains lime peel, hedione (green jasmine bud), orris, balsamic notes, and fresh musk.
Escentric Molecules 01 celebrates the hyper-abstraction of Iso E Super in two different fragrances. Iso E Super is a molecule that hovers close to the skin to create an indefinable aura round the wearer. It is characterised by a hyper-modern cedar wood 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.
