Escentric 04 Eau de Toilette
As one of the second set of fragrances in the Escentric Molecules line, based on a form of synthetic sandalwood, it was crucial the Escentric 04 offer something distinct from its 01 counterpart. Luckily, Geza Schoen loves a challenge, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Escentric 04 is a zesty, vibrant delight entirely its own. In fact, if anything, E04 uses the mouthwatering facets of Javanol to string together the best of each of the previous Escentrics- E01’s smooth woodsiness, E02’s invigorating crispness, and E03’s robust yet sheer grassiness. This is due to supporting notes that add electric pops of color- botanical juniper, bright, tart grapefruit, resinous mastic- all in the service of a scent as substantial as it is refreshing. Sheer, sparkling and thoroughly modern, Escentric 04 proves you don’t need to be loud in order to make a statement.
For Escentric 04, Schoen has chosen to focus on synthetic sandalwood. Javanol is a powerfully radiant synthetic sandalwood, as is Polysantol, which is sweeter and creamier. Use too much of either and the scent can become loud and vulgar. But here, Schoen has woven a fizzing pink combo of grapefruit, rose, and pink pepper into the sandalwood, resulting in a light, creamy shimmer of woods that never overpowers. Hedione and ambroxan add a fresh, salty “whiteness” that illuminates the woods from within. Nothing overdosed or harsh, just a perfect balance between sparkling fruit, roses, salt, flowers, creamy woods, and the spanking freshness of wet laundry. The ultimate summer “my skin but better” scent for both men and women.
