About lumen_esce

Capturing the scent of violets in a lab was one of the earliest triumphs of fragrance chemistry and ever since, ionones have been a pillar of perfumery. Violettyne® is the 21st century’s answer to their wistful, powdery fragrance: a preternaturally bright violet with a metallic vibration, edged in fluorescent green. Patented in 2000 by Firmenich, the cutting-edge captive molecule turns scent into light with lumen_esce.

THE SCENT: Electric Violet.  It is the color of majesty and mysticism. Of mystery and magic. Of inspiration and harmony… Associated for millennia with the most elevated states, violet is also the highest frequency of visible light. In lumen_esce*, Frank Voelkl plays on both meanings of the word, expressing the color’s radiance by exploring the full spectrum of the flower’s scent.  Boosted by a cool-as-cucumber essence of violet leaves, the sizzling Violettyne® shoots high-voltage current from bloom to roots. Petals aquiver, the flower scatters scented powder on a springtime posy (freesia, jasmine, iris and rose). Patchouli Prisma, a high-tech natural ingredient distilled and reassembled to enhance its woody warmth, sheds black light on the radiant bouquet.

Reviews of lumen_esce

There is one review of lumen_esce.
Pale and enervated hairspray violet that, if one were being imaginative, could recall cool porcelain or chrome in its overtly synthetic polish. But, sadly, such airbrushed stuff doesn’t provoke flights of fancy in me at all - just the desire to wear something different. Grounded with a claggy musk that has the feel of guava meets Milk of Magnesia about it, which made me feel a bit sick, until it too died back into not very much at all.
