Escentric 01

Eau de Toilette

by Escentric Molecules

The Scoop
Second only to its sister scent Molecule 01, Escentric 01 boasts the highest concentration of the aroma chemical Iso E Super ever to be used in perfumery (65%). The woody nature of this note is joined with top notes of pink pepper, lime peel and orris incense to create a moving fragrance intent on taking you right from the opening to the base in one sweeping, dramatic move. The tart lime and zesty pink pepper are a sparkling shot into the dark heart of Escentric 01’s moody, soft wood nature, while orris incense adds a dash of smoky incense and turns up the heat. Emotional and dazzling.

I love this layered with Fresh's Pink Jasmine Eau de Parfum. I don't know all the scent jargon words, only that I love the way this smells on the inside of my arm and I want to keep smelling it all day.

i love this scent the one you want forget.if you ever smelled it stands out from all the rest!

Smell beautiful and fragrant at the same time .. Over the best perfume in my life, and I bought it 3 perfume And deserves 5 ​​stars all the wall
By Mishari - from kuwait city on 7/31/2012
It smells very strong on me, like air freshener made out of fizzy lollies. Spicy, but chemical. Warm. As a fan of fresher, cleaner, more citrussy scents, I am not in love with it, but my coworkers are raving about it. One says it smells like "just molten steel", another thinks it smells "sweet and powdery". Fascinating, but really not for me.
By Ness on 6/18/2012
Lemony pepper & warm woods, drying down to a lovely ambergris (although it's not listed as a note, that's what l smell). Very nice, unisex, office-appropriate scent.
By teardrop - from southampton uk on 6/15/2012
Escentric 01 is my daily go-to fragrance because I constantly get compliments about how good I smell. It has been made very clear to me that I smell good in a comforting way, nothing in the way of vixen or glamour girl. I smell fresh peppery clean when I apply it and then I smell nothing. I feel like the sillage is low but people comment when I walk through a room, so it's trailing around me and I'm not picking up on it. I will be re-ordering this one.
By Anonymous - from CA on 1/6/2012
A wonderful scent; warm and cool and intimate and fluttering in the background - all at once. My absolute favourite scent with Geza S.´s Molecule #3 as a pretty close second.
By Peter - from Sweden on 12/6/2011
I have men and women track me down in stores to ask me what i am wearing. I have absolutely no idea what it smells like on me because I can't smell it at all.
By Anonymous - from Houston on 11/20/2011
This is the wimp of the Escentric line, and I much prefer 03. My sister said I smelled exactly like Light Blue, so I guess judging by how many other comments have suggested that, she was right on the money. The Iso E Super smells like burning plastic on me. Kinda gross.. The lime is too sweet, and I smell distance between the notes. Like I said, Escentric 03 is where it's at.
By Christophorous - from Planet Earth on 7/21/2011
i second the light blue comparison. way too similar and not unique enough for my liking. very department store like
By z - model from nyc on 5/11/2011
I REALLY hoped this would become my new "IT" fragrance... I was searching for something subtle but that would be noticed. And the fragrance started out bright, crisp and peppery... but it dried down to something distinctly burnt, and I don't mean in a woodsmoke kind of way. It was unpleasant, acrid, and not something I'll repeat. Bummer.
By Hello Katie - Mom from Charlottesville on 4/3/2011
This perfume smells like, a new leather jacket, a leather a smell of a new German car! Hmmm let me smell it again.........black pepper is there but very very veryyy soft not at all major. If you keep smelling the fragrance frequently u might get lost and the notes will seems to disappear. But try smelling it every hour or so, its a magical scent it keeps whispering, whiffs, every now and then. How I use it: Layering it with Tam Dao by Diptyque. First apply Tam Dao, then the magical Escentric 01 as a final touches.
By Saeed - from Al Ain, United Arab of Emirates on 1/26/2011
Not the fragrance for me - I could only smell and antiseptic smell and no-one else could smell much on me! Definitely worth trying a sample before investing in this expensive fragrance.
By Val - Pharmacist from London on 1/22/2011
I was really hoping I would like this but it did not work for me. Nobody noticed it either.
By Darcie on 1/15/2011
This behaves most unusually. When I spray it on (skin and clothing), I do experience the pepper/citrus fragrance for about 5-10 seconds. This promptly disappears, and then I am not able to smell it at all. But, when I wash my clothing, the fragrance develops in the dryer. I end up with a wonderfully smelling clean shirt. So, I get to experience this fragrance only when I wear the item again. But, I do love it, just don't understand it.
By jburgh on 1/7/2011
Flea powder. Incredible stench.
By Anonymous on 12/19/2010
Its smells on me like D&G Light Blue.. not so special, more like a department store perfume.
By Ivona - Manager from New York on 8/17/2010
This is absolutely beautiful. On me, it smells like the warm, glowing space around a perfume, like the experience of smelling without the actual smell. But it does have a smell, I promise; just not an easily definable one. I've gotten many compliments on it, and I love it because I never have to worry whether I have too much on or anything. It's really intimate and lovely and elegant and spare. I would buy a full bottle in a second if I had the cash.
By David - Student from New York on 6/16/2010
I thought all the hype about this perfume was a gimmick. However, I tried it and now wouldn't wear anything else. I get so many comments about how great I smell and my partner just loves it.
By lulu - from Australia on 3/28/2010
Devine! Everytime I wear this I receive positives from people everywhere I go. It definatly smells different on every person. A friend of mine also has it and it becomes more sweet on her while on me it is more spicy and mellow. Keep in mind on some people it smells revolting which we found out when one of my friends wore it and her sister said she smelt like insecticide. So it is worth trying before you buy.
By Anonymous - from Australia on 1/29/2010
I love wearing it...all my friends got crazy with this perfume...
By Anonymous - from greece on 1/17/2010
Don't believe the hype! This is a very nice, though pretty average fragrance as I found out to my cost.
By Anonymous - from UK on 7/1/2009
Thanks for coments,i want to know for men or women molecules 01 so good,maybe molecules 02for women?
By Anonymous - from Vilnius on 5/28/2009
hey all just i want to say that i work in perfumes and am wearing only this perfume thats it :D
By wael - from abu dhabi on 4/3/2009
I just love it. Probably one of the most interesting parfumes i ever had. I am male, I like it, my colleagues in the office love it, everyone who smells me just love it. I guess it varies depending from skin to skin. The only problem, I agree, is the fact that there is no safety cap on it and that you have to have it in its packaging all the time.
By Anonymous - Manager from Zagreb on 3/27/2009
I can't tell how many of the reviewers are men (most appear to be women), but this fragrance is terrific on a man. Soft wood is right. Great longevity- Lasts and lasts. I also get the slight pepper spiciness. I get no "aquatic" notes at all. Just a great, intriguing scent on a man. Sort of cedar, but more round and soft. The pepper adds just a little edge to make it even more interesting. A big thumbs up for Escentric 01.
By Milwaukee Man - from Milwaukee on 10/22/2008
This perfume poses quite a dilemna. I don't really like wearing it... its not horrible but there is something about it (lime? cedar?) that is sort of air-freshener-like. It reminds me of being in a bathroom. BUT...every time i wear it everyone tells me how amazing i smell. My boyfriend, my friends, the guy behind the counter at pinkberry. seriously. its kinda wierd. what's a girl to do?
By Anonymous - dancer from new york on 8/30/2008
I recently bought both Molecule 01 and Escentrics 01 only to get them home to find one problem: the fact that these heftily priced perfumes (much more expensive than even Chanel or Guerlain)come incomplete; there's no lid on the spray top! It means they can't be carried safely in my handbag in case of leakage or evaporation. (That is what a lid is for, after all.) I phoned the store where I bought them and they said "they're a bit off-beat and just come like that." Irritating! Jan Australia
By Jan Armstrong - Writer from Brisbane Australia on 8/3/2008
After reading these reviews, I had to try it. I'm disappointed. On me, it's Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue without any staying power. My husband was not impressed either.
By Annie - from Nashville on 6/16/2008
Awful - smells like a poorly made martini and subtley medicinal. Luckily for me, it didn't have any staying power, either.
By Claudia - from Cross Plains on 4/29/2008
I agree with the previous comments that said things like, "Magic in a bottle!" and "Holy Grail!". That sounds like hyperbole, but this is really, really a remarkable scent! It's so unique and different! I get a lot of pepper and some sort of citrus out of it, I think, but it's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is. I am definitely going to splurge and buy a bottle.
By MP - Project Manager from St. Louis on 4/23/2008
Magic in a bottle. Starts out with a blast of pepper/lime, and suddenly morphs into one of the most beautiful incence scents I have ever experienced. I hate "I am wearing perfume!" scents; this one seems to appear/disappear throughout the day to my nose, but other people seem to be aware of it, as I have never received as many compliments on a scent in my life. Without doubt my favorite of all time, as I am about to slurge on my third bottle. I purchased my first two at Barney's, but they have discontinued carrying it. I am so thrilled to find it on luckyscent, as I can't imagine being without what is now my signature scent.
By Anonymous - gallery director from chicago on 4/10/2008
I had to try this. After reading all of the reviews: the mystery of the disappearing/reappearing perfume...had to give it a try. It was really cool to experience this sample: when I applied it, it smelled great - woody, soft, yet very different than anything I had ever smelled. Then it happened! It disappeared! But only for about 5 minutes, and then it came back, got deeper and remained the same for about 2 hours. So cool. I may need to buy a bottle.
By Armypixie - musician from Tacoma on 2/29/2008
It took me a few tries to finally pin point what this smelled like on me - celery!! Actually more like celery salt spice. I guess it's just my unfortunate skin chemistry because I so wanted this to work on me.
By Anonymous on 2/9/2008
Sort of dreadful. Sharp, alcoholic wood and chemicals. Does not work on me. Sample first! (thanks, LuckyScent!)
By Anonymous - from Chesapeake on 1/4/2008
By Anonymous on 1/4/2008
I had this sample for a while and recently pulled it out while away on a business trip. I decided to buy a bottle because I loved the way it smelled all day long during my meetings. I knew it was a keeper when I wore it to Costco yesterday and the man behind me said he didn't want to go to a shorter line because he loved my perfume!
By Anonymous on 12/23/2007
Opps, the review below is for Escentric Molecules 01, the other fragrance by Escentric.
By Alia - from Cleveland on 11/2/2007
This smells exactly like the stuff they put into hamster cages (cedar), which I happen to kind of dig. However, it is uni-dimensional (hamster cage) and nothing else, plus it lasts about ten seconds (literally) on me.
By Alia - from Cleveland, OH on 10/31/2007
This is obviously one that must be tested before purchase (unless you are after the bottles). This one smells like mineral spirits on me. Sometimes woodier, sometimes more aquatic floral. Always mineral spirits underneath. Very sad - I wanted this one to work.
By sakecat - trainer from Washington DC on 10/4/2007
Adore this!!! Fresh and crisp, but not sharp, and mellowed out with time for me. I swear, everytime I wore this scent whoever I was with commented on how great I smelled! And I loved waking up in the morning still being able to smell traces of the scent on myself and on my pillow. Have only been fortunate enough to try as a sample (hello student budget) but will definitely be buying a FB in near future.
By Judy  - student from Toronto on 9/18/2007
Can't say it enough.. Love it!
By Anonymous - from chicago on 9/17/2007
This kinda smells like Perfumerie Generale's Yuzu ab Irato which is one of my faves. Nice but ill stick with PG
By Anonymous - from chicago on 7/8/2007
First smell on me is cedar, and I thought yuk. Wore it to bed and woke up with a delicious mellow fragrance this morning. Great lasting power, and it must smell good on me because my co-worker said so, and she's finicky.
By Anonymous - from San Antonio on 6/7/2007
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SAMPLES I'VE RECEIVED SINCE "UME" BY KEIKO MECHERI... IT IS BREATHTAKING...LIGHT, SPICY AND EXOTIC...I LOVE IT AND NOW I'M OFF TO FIND THE MONEY TO BUY A BOTTLE!!
By TANDY - from LOS ANGELES on 5/18/2007
This scent is amazing. At first, I get a rush of pink pepper, then it softens down to a fresh snazzy scent with a hint of citrus. The base is woody, but it is not overpowering. Think Givenchy's Amarige, but much much nicer. During the day I find it fades to my senses, but others can smell it. Then it reappears later. I think it's gorgeous - it is worth grabbing a sample of this at least to try. I wasn't expecting much from it, but got a sample and was blown away. Will be buying the full size bottle down the track.
By S - from Australia on 5/11/2007
I wish I could smell what everyone else is smelling, but on my skin it smells EXACTLY like the scented toilet paper that I remember from when I was a child. It is a pleasant smell, but I'll be going about my business and I'll think, "Where's the scented toilet paper--oh ya! it's my perfume!" After thinking that like 50 times in an hour I finally washed it off. But I still give it a 3 becase 1) it's a pretty smell 2) the lasting power is amazing! I washed it off with soap, water, and a wash cloth, and then scrubbed with an unsented baby wipe and it was still there 3) the sillage is amazing too! Even 4 hours after washing it off I am still getting wiffs of it!
By Julie  - stay home mom 27 from dewey, ok on 5/9/2007
Like many others, I was skeptical at first. But in all fairness, I decided to give this a whirl. The very first day I wore it, a man on the street commented, "Damn, she smells good!" And in little over a week, three other men commented on my "scent." While it's not discernible on me after a few hours, apparently others are noticing...and that's all I need. This is not a traditional perfume, not in the least bit...but it's extraordinarily unique. I'm in love!
By Eugene - shop owner from Brooklyn on 4/29/2007
Love it! This one totally blew me away. There was all this hype about it recently here in Australia, as it was going to be released for the first time, so I got a sample from here & am so glad I did. It's hard to describe - it reminds me of Amarige by Givenchy, but heaps better - clean , modern & snazzy. At first I smell the pink pepper, then it mellows down to a fresh, citrus, and slight woody fragrance. It appears and disappears to my senses throughout the day, and even if I can't smell it, others can. I can even smell it 24 hours after.
By Anonymous - from Australia on 4/25/2007
This smells HORRIBLE on me. The molecule 01 smells great on me but not this one. It smells great on both of my sisters but they agree it smells nasty on me. Get a sample, because if it doesn't mix with your body chemistry, watch out!
By Anonymous - from Boston on 4/9/2007
Very very delicious!!!!!!
By Badão - from São Paulo on 3/28/2007
Perhaps I need to slightly alter my previous post...in one week's time, I had 3 complete strangers stop to tell me how great I smelled; 1 was so intrigued, I ended up writing down this website address so she could order this for herself. Towards the middle of the day I can't easily detect this scent on myself, but apparently others can and are wooed. While my nose continues to detect the essence of Light Blue, I have never received as much notice as compared to Escentric...maybe this is more unique than I first thought...
By Aimee - from Maui on 12/10/2006
I hate to spoli the party, but I am not overly impressed. Upon initial contact, this has a nice peppery note, but after dry down, it smells too similar to Dolce's Light Blue, at least on me. This is a very nice fragrance and lasts well, but I was hoping for a truly unique, one of a kind find. Alas, I shall keep hunting for that elusive treasure...
By Aimee - from Maui on 11/22/2006
Gorgeous addictive smell with depth... when I first put it on I didn't know what to expect however after an hour I was hooked. This smell lingers on me all day..I find myself unconciously smelling my wrist to relive the fascinating and unique scent. I love how beautiful it makes me feel. Glad I bought it.
By Farrah Cameron - Student/ Fashion Consultant from Sydney, Australia on 9/20/2006
My favorite of all I've tried, ever! My husband loves it more than anything and I love it, I am not good with describing scents but this is well worth the price. there is something unique and different about this one. It smells clean but exotic in a sense as well. Do try this if you want to smell 'attractive' to others!
By Sarah - Homemaker from Knoxville, TN on 8/18/2006
And I thought finding a Holy Grail fragrance was out of the question. I've worn different perfumes for years, this one gets me compliments over and again, and I love it myself! So beautiful. It seems such a simple scent when smelled, yet emotinally complex. I cannot wait to try the Molecule, for if this is any indication, I will love it as well. This one will be a repeat purchase again and again.
By Elizabeth - Travel Agent from Atlanta on 8/18/2006
I love this. It's comfortable, comforting, and people around me keep commenting on how good I smell. Even the day after I've worn it. And, it does really good things for other scents when you layer with it. The lasting power is just fine - though I reapply after a few hours just because I love that initial jolt. And if you love tart citrus but haven't found one that lasts, try this - for some reason the citrus lingers a long time. Your clothes will smell great, too.
By Anonymous - television producer on 8/10/2006
I find this fragrance long lasting, not that it leaves a trail when I walk, but long lasting. Not quite sandalwood and not quite sweet, a unique scent that is difficult to describe but so easy to wear on the body; I want to say simple when thinking of it, again, it defies description. People repeatedly say flattering things about me when I wear this perfume, much more than with most things I wear so I will be buying another bottle.
By Sandra - Gift Shop owner from Lexington, KY on 6/19/2006
Simple and to the point, this one is The Holy Grail of "Skin Scents"
By Anonymous on 6/10/2006
I really don't know why some people say this doesn't have any staying power. It stays on ALL day and even night. I can still smell it the next day. Very addictive scent. Warm but not sweet. Comforting. Worth $130...No
By Anonymous - from NYC on 5/22/2006
Slightly more interesting than Molecule 01 (although STILL no staying power), but given the price, SO not worth it. Go for something by CdG or a Yosh oil instead.
By Daniel - from Boston on 1/18/2006
Where did it go? I smelled it for a second, and I liked the warm notes of pepper, then POOF! It's gone!! Like emotion in that it is quite fleeting!
