"With Escentric 05 I wanted to create a different kind of summer fragrance. Instead of the usual aqueous notes, I was inspired by walking up from the sea on a hot afternoon through dry, aromatic Mediterranean herbs and trees." - Geza Schoen
Cashmeran, the molecule at the heart of the 05 series, is dry, radiant, warm and woody with an unexpected touch of pine resin. It's this vibrant quality that caused Geza Schoen to flash back to the Mediterranean, where he spent his childhood summers, and as a result Escentric 05 is truly a different kind of summer scent, infused with vivid, glowing warmth and the contrast of sun-baked plants and trees.
Escentric 05 opens with a wonderfully simply top of light, fresh bergamot, and a bright and happy orange note, chosen to represent the orange groves of our hypothetical island destination. Laurel and rosemary carry a signature freshness and spiciness, while a the herbal character of juniper plays against the dry, pungent woodiness of cypress. The drydown features two classic Mediterranean ingredients- cistus labdanum, with its sweet, leathery, balsamic richness, and mastic, a tree-based resin with the clean, sharp scent of newly-cut branches. And they're both layered over the signature 05 Series ingredient, cashmeran- an intoxicating 15% concentration within the formula that provides sensual, woodsy warmth. Far from a typically "freshie" summer scent, Escentric 05 captures the emotional warmth of summer memories in a scent with all the signature stylishness of Escentric Molecules.
