This new take on the cult Escentric Molecules fragrance, Molecule 01 + Mandarin eau de toilette pairs the original aroma molecule with the floral radiance of Iris.
The Molecule + range by perfumer and founder Geza Schoen's is perfect for Molecule lovers looking to add another dimension to their signature scent. Molecule 01 + Mandarin combines Molecule 01's magnetic scent with creamy, ethereal notes 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."
