The most minimal fragrance is a single aroma-molecule : Molecule 01. The next most minimal adds 1 to 01 :

01 + 1

This is Molecule +
Molecule 01 + Patchouli

Molecule 01 + Patchouli

Molecule 01 + Patchouli consists of Iso E Super + Patchouli.

Iso E Super is an abstract synthetic molecule characterised as a cedarwood note with a warm, velvety cocooning sensation. 

Patchouli is a natural extracted from the leaves of the patchouli plant. 

Geza Schoen: “Patchouli is a unique natural. Unlike 99% of perfume ingredients we associate it with a particular period, with the sixties and seventies and that bohemian spirit. It has a cool, rather aloof woodiness to it. I love it for its moody beauty.

I’ve used two qualities of patchouli here. The biggest chunk is Patchouli Coeur which is a very clean, soft patchouli oil fraction with the camphor-like topnote removed. I have also included a patchouli oil from Indonesia to round it out with a little bit of a topnote.

The result is a sophisticated, clean patchouli that pairs fantastically well with Molecule 01.” 

Molecule 01 + Iris

Molecule 01 + Iris

Molecule 01 + Iris consists of Iso E Super + Iris.

Iso E Super is an abstract synthetic molecule characterised as a cedarwood note with a warm, velvety cocooning sensation. 

Iris is a natural extracted from the root of several varieties of iris.

Geza Schoen: “It’s not easy to describe iris’ smell as such, but if you smell a fragrance without it, and then with it, you understand immediately what it does. It adds a creamy powderiness. It brings a physical dimension to a fragrance.

I have had a long-standing love affair with iris. Every Escentric fragrance has an iris note somewhere in there. To me, iris is luxury. The iris pallida absolue I’ve used here is one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery. You can find iris extracts for way less than that. But they do not have the great and subtle beauty of this absolue. It’s radical to put this much in a fragrance. The sillage is fantastic. This is a bomb, but a subtle bomb.”

Molecule 01 + Mandarin

Molecule 01 + Mandarin

Molecule 01 + Mandarin consists of Iso E Super + Mandarin.

Iso E Super is an abstract synthetic molecule characterised as a cedarwood note with a warm, velvety cocooning sensation. 

Mandarin is a natural extracted from the mandarin orange.

Geza Schoen: “Mandarin is all about the instant hit. It’s so alive, the way it radiates off the skin with that citrus zestiness. But there’s more to mandarin, it’s very fruity and aromatic as well. It’s a beautiful ingredient. Its transparency means that it vanishes quickly. I’ve touched it up with a little extra shading to extend it, adding a mandarin ingredient used in flavourings to give it super-juiciness. Then as it begins to fade, Molecule 01 syncs in, bringing a warm, erogenous feeling to play with that zinging freshness. That’s unusual – for a topnote ingredient like Mandarin and a base note like Iso E Super to dance together naked like this, without other notes coming between them. And then the mandarin is almost gone and you are left with the elevated simplicity of Molecule 01. 

That’s what I love about Molecule 01 + Mandarin – it may be a dance of two but the story changes completely from beginning to middle to end.”

Our M+ Discovery Set contains a 2ml sample of each Molecule + fragrance.

Geza Schoen: “Molecule 01 is an exceptional molecule: radiant, velvety, cocooning. It’s mysteriously effective on its own as Molecule 01, But I started to wonder
if there might be another way to play with it. What if I could take the molecule and add just one other beautiful ingredient and see how they danced together in the bottle?
