Created by legendary ‘nose’ Geza Schoen, Escentric Molecules strip back the bells and whistles of traditional perfumery, to create something unique and unusual without being gimmicky. In fact, it’s the laissez-faire element of these concoctions that make them so alluring and seductive (think: 60s French screen siren in a scruffy t-shirt and jeans).
