Let me introduce you to my new friend – Eccentric Molecules Molecule 01. My lovely husband got it for me for Christmas & I’ve been wearing it ever since. When I heard about it first (lots of rave reviews on blogs and YouTube), I thought it was a bit gimmicky but when it appeared in Harvey Nichols I had to have a sniff. Here is what Eccentric Molecules say about the scent:
Molecule 01 consists of one single ingredient, ‘Iso E Super’. On its own it is less of an aroma than an effect. The wearer may notice a pleasant, subtle velvety-woody note which will vanish, then re-surface after some time, but more than this, she or he will notice the impact it has on other people. “Molecule 01 lends an indefinable radiance to the wearer,” says Geza Schoen. In fact, its effect is almost pheromonic.
Initially I thought it smelled a little of alcohol and after a little while it smelled of nothing at all. But (!!) a few minutes after spraying it onto my wrist it developed this amazing woody, slightly masculine & sexy smell – right up my street. When I got it and started wearing it the scent kept disappearing and coming back every now and then, I thought I have just gotten used to it and can’t really smell it anymore. I knew it was still there because a lot of people were complementing the perfume and asking what scent I was wearing. Not sure about the radiance and the pheromonic effect but I haven’t wanted to wear anything else since the 25th December (sorry, Jo Malone)!
Since the huge success of Molecule 01 the company has brought out several different scents all as quirky as the original. They definitely have a new and original approach to fragrance and are absolutely worth checking out.
P.S. – It’s a unisex smell so the boys in your life may like this one too!
Let me know what you think if you’ve tried it!
