Molecule 01

If you're reading this, there's a good chance you're familiar with Fleur de Force and Gemsmaquillage.  These are the people responsible for me knowing what Molecule 01 is.  So when I was approached by Cult Beauty to see if I'd like to review a bottle, I jumped at the chance :)

They say "Escentric Molecules' Molecule 01 is created solely from the aroma-chemical Iso E Super, traditionally a perfume basenote that adds allure to a scent, which works as more of an effect than a fragrance. The scent has a subtle, velvety, woody note which will meld with your natural pheromones, vanish, then re-surface after some time, making it totally individual and personalised to the wearer. You will rarely smell this fragrance on yourself, Molecule 01 perfume is more about the effect it has on others."

My Thoughts

This has been one of the most exciting things to land on my door mat.  I may have squealed a little as I ripped open the packaging to reveal this little beauty waiting for me.

Developed by Escentric Molecules, this little bottle of fragrance is made up of one ingredient, Iso E Super.  Iso E Super has a sort of woody/musky scent when you first spray it, then after a couple of minutes you won't really smell it again, apart from the odd whiff during the day.

One thing I really did notice is how many compliments from people I have when wearing this (they were all from women!).  I had so many people say 'you smell lovely' or 'what perfume are you wearing' and they all seemed to really like it.  My husband wasn't as keen, but he's the only person I met who didn't like it :)  The molecule is supposed to react with your pheromones to create a unique scent, but a scent that only others will smell on you.  I asked my friends to describe it, some said floral and some said sweet, but they all liked it :)

If you're interested in picking this up, Cult Beauty were one of the first places to start selling this - the size I received was the travel size (about £27), you can pick up the full size for £65.50 on their site here.

All in all I really like this fragrance, and who doesn't like getting lots of compliments :)  Have you tried Molecule 01?
