Niche line Escentric Molecules line will launch their fourth fragrance duo. Molecule 04 and Escentric 04 focus on Givaudan's sandalwood molecule Javanol; both fragrances were developed by perfumer and brand founder Geza Shoen.
Molecule 04 (above left) ~ "Imagine a sandalwood stripped of its heaviness to reveal a soft and sheer wood radiating silvery freshness. This is Javanol. And this is the heart, body and soul of Molecule 04."
Escentric 04 (above right) ~ "The heart of Escentric 04 is orris with a 'fresh soft rose' that Schoen composed from four different rose materials. The dry down is balsamic and woody, with Javanol in combination with the somewhat sweeter sandalwood molecule, Polysantol." Additional notes include pink grapefruit, bergamot, juniper berry, pink pepper, hedione, freesia, osmanthus, mastic, labdanum, iso e super, musk, ambroxan, castoreum and vetiver.
Escentric Molecules Molecule 04 and Escentric 04 are $150 each for 100 ml Eau de Toilette, and can be pre-ordered now at Luckyscent.
Update: the pair is also available in 30 ml, $85 each packaged with a travel case or $65 each for a refill.
