Molecule 01*

Today, I have the opportunity to share with you all a fragrance that is very unique, and something I hadn't heard of before, which made me want to read up on what Molecule 01 actually is. 

 "Molecule 01 contains only the aroma-chemical Iso E Super, which, on its own, is less of a fragrance than an effect. The wearer may notice a subtle, velvety, woody note which will vanish, then re-surface after some time. More than this, she or he will notice the impact the fragrance has on other people, because Molecule 01 lends an indefinable allure to the wearer. In fact, its effect is almost pheromonic."

After some extra research, I have discovered that Molecule 01 was devised in 2005  by the German perfumer Geza Schoen. It’s a unisex fragrance made by a company called Escentric Molecule, with a scent is based on one main ingredient and is designed to work with pheromones in your skin. 

From only containing the aroma of one chemical, I am assuming its supposed to be more of a non-perfume sort of scent for people who don’t want the obvious smell of perfume. Something that really intrigued me about this product, is that the fragrance smells different on different people, I'm guessing this is something that enhances our "natural scent". 

This fragrance would be a gorgeous gift for anyone, whether it be for Christmas or not. You can purchase this fragrance here!

Have you heard of this fragrance before? Have you tried it? Is this something that would appeal to you?

  1. I was intrigued by this when I'd first heard about it but when I went to London over summer and tried it at Liberty's I was massively disappointed! :/ I've tried the other one in orange packaging, which is similar to this but with a scent for those who prefer to smell some of their perfume throughout the day and it didn't really convince me to purchase it :/
