Today I’m going to be looking at a very unique fragrance, and one that I have wanted for quite some time. Unusually for me, I haven’t rushed straight out to buy it, yet every time I read a blog post or spotted it in a magazine, I have thought to myself about how much I wanted it. For what feels like a lifetime, I have finally managed to get the Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 Fragrance. Available from Cult Beauty, in this handy travel case, Molecule 01 has taken over my other fragrances as I love its uniqueness and the compliments that it receives.
Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 Fragrance is made of just one ingredient – Iso E Super, and this one ingredient is what makes Molecuoe 01 so unique. Every single perfume in the world is made up of blends of notes and tones to create the desired effect of a certain scent. Most scents that I wear fall into the floral – fruity bracket, with heavier scents featuring Oud and more oriental notes. As I write, I am wearing Molecule 01 and the first thing that comes to mind is the slighty masculine, woody musky aroma that emanates from the skin. It’s quite weird in that it disappears and I can’t smell it all, yet suddenly I get a whiff of it and it smells different once again.
The main factor of using just one ingredient in Molecule 01 means that the wearer creates the scent. Drawn to the pheromones within the skin, the subtle velvet woody scent that initially arises will disappear, just like it has done on myself and come back with an entirely new scent that is unique to the wearer. Pheromones are also said to attract men, but so far I haven’t seen a queue forming. I’ll update you after the weekend.
What I find confusing to my senses, is that I’m not particularly drawn to the initial fragrance, yet people can smell something on me that just works, yet I simply cannot smell it myself. I feel like the scent reappears on clothing later, yet all I can smell is the perfume that I’ve initially sprayed, and not what it has reacted into with the addition of my pheromones. Not only that, when I’ve sprayed it on my friends to see the difference, I get a warm, spicy fragrance from one friend and quite a dry, musky fragrance from another.
It’s an absolutely fasciniting product and I’ve not been able to stay away from it over the last week or so. The version that I have comes in a stylish metal travel case which is ideal for work without the bottle getting based about. Have you tried Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 Fragrance? What was it like on you?
