Escentric Molecules Escentric 03 EDT Refill is a tribute to the more familiar side of vetiver: its darker, slightly exotic woodiness. It opens with a burst of freshness – top notes of ginger root, green peppercorn, Mexican lime. The heart of the fragrance is orris surrounded by Egyptian jasmine and soft tea notes. The slightly bitter notes of vetiver at the base are smoothed by rich amber colors of sandalwood, cedar, leather and musk. The overall impression is spicy but fresh with warm balsamic undertones, like a traditional chypre. It’s sensuous without sweetness, which is something of a Schoen signature. It focuses on Vetiveryl Acetate where Schoen want to bring out the scent impressions of the roots previouslyy highlighted and demonstrate how well they harmonise with each other.
