The Perfume That Brings Out Your Best-Smelling Self —Jay Sailors Most perfumes are developed to give the wearer a pleasant smell. But one company is expanding the possibilities of what perfumes can do. Instead of just adding a nice smell, the company’s perfumes enhance the wearer’s natural scent.
Escentric Molecules has developed a unique line of perfumes that are nearly scentless on their own. However, on each person who wears them, they take on a different smell. Each of the perfumes—which can be worn by both men and women—has only a tiny amount of a single scent. The other ingredients change that scent by mixing with the wearer’s natural pheromones. The result is a smell that only exists on the wearer.
This concept represents a big shift from traditional perfumes, which try to overcome natural scents and usually smell the same on everyone. The company may be onto something—Escentric Molecules’ perfumes have received positive reviews from GQ and other media outlets. They are also rumored to be popular among stars like Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kate Moss. In any case, for perfume lovers, these products offer something special: a scent they can truly call their own.
