It’s Personal: Scents With Your Signature

Get a whiff of these fragrance renegades that produce unique profiles.

 

 

 

Created by D.S. & Durga, the small-batch perfumery of hip Brooklynites David Seth Moltz and Kavi Ahuja Moltz (a Bergen County native), the aroma of I Don’t Know What is as original as its name. Classified as a fragrance enhancer, this eau de parfum can be layered with any scent to add depth and longevity. Alone, it has an ethereal softness that heightens and enhances your body’s natural aroma, creating an air of je ne sais quoi—hence its name. From $175 at dsanddurga.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Molecule 01’s take on scent backpedals from traditional perfumes by allowing Iso E Super, a common base chemical from which many fragrances are built, to stand on its own. This unisex fragrance is characterized by its light, woody notes and pheromone-like qualities as it blends with the wearer’s body chemistry. A whiff from the bottle yields little fragrance, as the eau de toilette is fully realized only when it meets skin. Produced by innovative Berlin perfumer Geza Schoen,  Molecule 01 is a mysterious, enchanting and sensual fragrance, an intimate departure from traditional scents that maintain a predictable profile.  $135 at bloomingdales.com.
