When it comes to perfume, we often hear the word “cheap” thrown around when people talk about synthetic aroma molecules. There is a deeply entrenched belief that, just because something is “natural”, it must be superior. What most people don’t realise, though, is that most aroma molecules are isolated from natural sources. In the case of ambroxan used in Esencia, it’s primarily isolated from clary sage. And it’s really bloody expensive!
Sleek, sophisticated and angular, Esencia is the Blade Runner of perfumery. Experiencing its dry, mineralic, leathery smells blurs the lines between what is real and what is “fake”, a recurring theme in a couple of Philip K. Dick novels, to create an aroma that is more than anything accomplishable by nature.
