Molecule 01

Eau de Toilette

by Escentric Molecules

The Scoop
Molecule 01 is unlike anything you will ever wear. It is one of the most mysteriously alluring scents wrapped in simplicity. For us, the phenomenon of Molecule 01 came completely out of left field. When we first encountered it in 2005, our first impression was that we couldn't smell a thing. We weren't sure what to think, but we wore it just as the description urged us to do, and didn't really notice the subtle scent on ourselves. The response from others, however, was undeniable. Each time we wore it, somebody would ask what we were wearing. It was astonishing how predictably this occurred.

Molecule 01 is an aroma chemical, which are used in virtually all modern fragrances to recreate scents like jasmine or cedar or a host of other familiar olfactory favorites. This fragrance, however, is the first to to pay homage to Iso E Super, which you probably know as a sweet sandalwood/cedar-like smell. Because Molecule 01 is an aroma chemical rather than a perfume, it behaves differently. You have to wear it to understand it. If you have a bottle Molecule and feel that it smells of nothing, be patient. Keep using it. The velvety woody note is highly sensitive to body chemistry and twists and turns as it evolves, combining with the wearers' own natural scent to create an extraordinary alluring quality. The science of scent is truly on display and is sure to delight those woody fragrance aficionados who love to venture forth and discover something devastatingly unique. A true phenomenon in its own right.

One of the most interesting and beautiful scents that I've ever experienced. Not overpowering, so I can wear it to work. I could see myself wearing this becoming my signature scent for spring and summer.
By S - jeweler from Michigan on 4/18/2014
This is by far the most interesting and captivating scent I have ever worn. I have been stopped by countless people who have asked me what I was wearing. I am selfish and don't give them too many details !!
By Mimi on 4/15/2014
I can see why this is the most popular scent on the site. It seems to suit everyone. The disappearing/reappearing act also adds to the overall mystery. I get many compliments when wearing it. The beautiful cedary smell works well with Lafco Sea and Dune soap which you can also purchase from this site.

I apologize in advance to those who love this fragrance. I really gave it the best of all trys. It's initial pepper scent on my skin just didn't appeal to me. As the aroma developed, I realized this just wasn't for me. Interesting chemistry concept, though

My husband and I both love this scent.
By Shannon - from Athens, AL on 11/15/2013
I LOVE this almost-not-there scent! It is neither masculine nor feminine, it is light and transparent, yet warm and cedar-y. It always smells clean and is a bit mysterious. It is a fragrance one cannot tire of, and as it unfolds it is unique to the individual wearing it.
By QueenBee93402 - Retired from Los Osos on 9/12/2013
I normally do not write reviews, but this scent is unbelievable! I have never experienced anything like it. Every time I wear Molecule 01, I get LOTS of great feedback. I can hardly get anything done as people are always stopping me to ask what scent I am wearing. I have been told that I have a radiant glow and smell divine. This scent mesmerizes people. Its so dreamy! I would give it more than 5 stars!!!!!

Life is simply not fair. My latest batch of samples delivered to my office this afternoon. Supremely excited to try this one, I immediately spritzed my wrist. AND!?!?!? Nothing. I thought "Oh, great! It doesn't work on my skin!" And then I spritzed a little more on my chest and thought I'd just wait and see. And then. AND THEN IT TRANSFORMED! Into the most hard to describe, piney, fresh, soft scent that would occasionally leap up at me and was, quite literally, enchanting. I kept inhaling my blouse deeply trying to find it, to pin it down. It was like my skin itself had evolved. I thought, PERFECT! It's true! It's real! This one is for me! I smiled thinking I'd finally, 85 samples later (seriously. 85! true. story.) that I had found the ONE. And then. Apparently, I am one of the unlucky fools to have a sensitivity to Iso E. Super. Insert a string of wild profanity here! It gave me a headache. A real, and true, and terrible headache. I am so, so disappointed. I had no idea! And I am crushed. I love this fragrance. I love the mystery, I love the science, I love it all and if it weren't for having to scrub it away to get rid of the headache, I would be purchasing a full bottle right this second. You should absolutely try a sample - buy one right now! And if it works on you, if it blends with your skin and you've no sensitivity to the synthetics, then honey hold onto your hat- you are going to LOVE IT! I'm so, so very sorry it's not going to be my signature fragrance. Good luck!

Received my Limited Edition black beautiful Escentric Molecule01 bottle today. To the people who doubt this wonderful formula, you need to understand that this is a Basenote fragrance, the scent cannot and is not intended to hit your olfactory system by sniffing the bottle or upon immediate application thereafter. This magical juice works its magic and will outlast nearly most of the competition in the end. Sniffing the atomizer nozzle is not a good way to test this fragrance. Spray it on a napkin or article of clothing and come back hours later or a day later and test the area. This juice is a powerhouse in terms of longevity and although it lasts, it is subtle. The best way to describe Molecule01 in my opinion (as well as a fellow niche fanatic friend of mine) is like someone took the washing machine filled it with clean white cotton t-shirts, water, old school detergent suds, some wood chips and the lightest bit of musk, vanilla, and a touch of spice.. It's really not loud at all. It is also really "safe", the scent is not overbearing in any department. It's just pleasant and simple the way the earth smells after a rainstorm. The smell is present, and detectable, but not way turned up. This fragrance doesn't have the "top" notes that cover up the alcohol ingredient like all other cologne/perfume have. Be AWARE, you may not be able to detect this on yourself however with that being said, others will notice the distinct nuances this juice possesses that set it aside from the rest. You really have to give this perfume time to evolve and "arise" in the way it was designed to work. If you are looking for a versatile fragrance that can be worn in any weather or temperature, that will last, not offend the most finicky, and appeal to the masses, then go for it because Molecule01 is worth the money, the patience, and the experience.

It is totally the same as "Blue" from DG which is much cheaper.
By Anonymous - from San Francisco on 5/14/2013
I wear top of the line fragrances from Creed Aventus to Tom Ford private colections (Oud Wood, Tuscan Leather). Everything I wear smells good but when I wear Molecule 1, everyone ask what do I have on. It last all day. If you want to smell next level, this is the fragrance you've been looking for to get you there.
By DA - Minister/Public speaker/Mentor from Wisconsin on 4/30/2013
I have never witnessed the reactions I have with Molecule 01 with any other scent. My husband started wearing this about 3 years ago and every single time we go anywhere, total strangers, men and women, stop him to ask him what he's wearing. The doorman at his office, clients, women trying to get the name for their partners, you name it. This scent's trail is remarkable. I once got off the train walking home from work and as I walked along the pavement I felt I could smell my husband's scent. I couldn't see him though. It wasn't until I turned the corner and saw him 100 metres ahead of me that I realised! The development is woody, powdery, aromatic, fresh- all at once. A truly wonderful scent that I can still smell after washing shirts and ironing them again. My husband would never swap it for anything else.
By Nathalie  - Perfume editor and consultant from London on 4/12/2013
Iso E Super is indeed a rich, deep, heady scent that transforms differently on different people. It can sweet, exotic, woody and sensual all at the same time. I personally love it. However, Iso E Super is an extremely inexpensive compound. You can purchase bottles full on Perfumer's Apprentice, for example, for a fraction of the price here.
By Christopher - from Nashville on 1/28/2013
I have been trying to find another favorite fragrance for 5 years. After wasting a lot of money and my housekeeper getting all of the mistakes, I found a real winner. When I wear this EVERYTHING SMELLS GREAT- people stop me wherever I and ask me "what is that "? My lab coat and even the clothes in my dirty clothes hamper afterwards smell great.When the lab coat goes to the dry cleaner, they inquire "what is that fragrance?. It plays games on you-now you smell it, now you don't . I am not sure what notes I am smelling because it is different from minute to minute and then completely disappears (to my nose). All day long everyone says how delicious I smell, even at the gym at 7pm- this is still working its magical powers. My very fav of my life and I am not a young girl. Thanks to your sample program- this was a real discovery. rsample program
By pattie - medical professional from miami Florida on 1/1/2013
At first, no smell...then about 30 minutes later a lot of cedar! Clean and unobtrusive. However, a little too coniferous for my tastes.
By Anonymous - Physician from Colorado Mts on 11/17/2012
Amazing scent. I finally found a scent that is me and will use forever. Very woodsy and clean and not like everything else. I'm addicted and I get lots of people asking me what I'm wearing and actually trying to breathe it in. I can smell it on me in waves and it make me feel happy and calm.
By Linda USA on 10/15/2012
I'm usually dissapointed after trying unusual fragrances, and Molecule 01 was no different. All I could smell after the application, was a faint trace of cedar. The experts at Luckyscent, ranked this scent amoung the world's best. I'm still trying to figure out why? This is a try before you buy.
By David S. - from Chicago on 9/21/2012
Funny story actually .. Before bed one night I sprayed terre d'hermes edt on one arm and molecule 01 on the other. Don't know why I chose those two. But I noticed that they were very similar. And after reading a few reviews someone stated that terre d'hermes uses a lot of iso e super! Pretty much take the musky powdery orange out of terre d'hermes and your left with molecule 01
By Adam - from Perth on 7/21/2012
I love wearing this scent! Even though I can't smell it on myself, it seems to be really attractive to other people. I am constantly hearing people sniffing behind me on the elevator or when I walk past them in the hall at work and I've had waiters, hotel bell staff, taxi drivers and strangers on the sidewalk stop me to ask what I'm wearing so they can buy it for their wife or girlfriend. How fun is that?!!
By Nancy - from Chicago on 7/19/2012
ha! i received my sample and began the whole process of not being able to smell the scent. but then i read the reviews and it explained the completely captivating, intriguing whispers of scent that visited from time to time. the description is 100% accurate. this sparked an inordinate amount of inquiries! i love it.
By SoCasualChic - Advertising from Irvine on 5/23/2012
I have been a fragrance "junkie" my whole life and up until now I have never been able to say that I have a "signature" scent... I cannot even begin to describe this scent - sometimes I can smell it sooo vividly and sometimes I cannot smell it at all.. but whenever I wear it I get tons of compliments whenever I wear it! I spray it on before I go to bed at night and I the scent envelops me and makes me soooo happy! - when I can smell it that is :) Give this a try
By Anonymous - from Amherst on 3/3/2012
ORDER A SAMPLE FIRST! I see a lot of poor reviews due to not being able to get any scent from this fragrance - that's because a small percentage of people cannot smell the molecule that is the core of this fragrance, Iso E Super... most fragrances use only a bit, while this makes it a key ingredient. Your bottle is not defective - it's just that you literally, physically cannot smell the main ingredient! Sorry :(
By Bec215 on 11/11/2011
I doused myself in it and could smell nothing but alcohol. I'm wondering if the scent is unstable, because there is nothing wrong with my nose- I've got 5 other samples here that work just fine.
By NancyKnows - Writer from East Coast on 10/6/2011
Unfortunately, I can't smell it on myself or others.
By NFB-418 - from The Brew on 9/12/2011
I first smelled this scent on a colleague and loved it! When I tried it myself, I didn't think it smelled the same, but it turns out that you don't smell it on yourself, but those around you enjoy the scent! Every now and then I do catch a hint on myself. It is a light fragrance and is my new signature! I'm so glad that I found this perfume! I have tried many, but this one is a keeper!!!
By Aleyna R - Manager from Chicago on 8/10/2011
This is a strange but lovely one for me. I don't particularly like the smell I get from sniffing my skin closely, but the aura of scent that surrounds me is really appealing to my nose. I've experience it in waves, and those waves are very soft edged and inviting.
By Christophorous - from Planet Earth on 8/1/2011
This scent is definitely not for everyone, but it is wonderful for me. As a signature scent, this is perfect for me because it is distinctive and sexy, but light enough that it smells like your natural body scent, or maybe just your hair or skin. This is a perfect everyday scent, though I still keep something a little heavier around for evening events. Like the others said, it does come and go at the most unexpected moments, which can be kind of fun and sexy. If you're looking for something light and clean, but not citrus-y or cotton-y, this is the scent for you.
By Sarah - Medical from Maryland on 7/11/2011
For me, this is a must have. Finally a signature scent. I get so many compliments when I wear this. Its like cedar but also like sandalwood. it just wafts around my skin, and I lightly smell the fragrance throughout the day. Lightly spicy. Somebody told me it smelled like a vacation in the country.
By Sandi - from Des Plaines on 5/24/2011
Could not smell anything, weird, maybe I just don't get it, sorry...
By Anonymous - from San Francisco on 4/14/2011
I am asking for a bottle for my birthday. The sample was gone in 4 days...couldn't get enough. My husband said, "that's the best of your samples - what is that?" I do not mean this in a bad way - but it kind of reminds me of clean, warm laundry; a hint of old-fashioned Downy.
By Steph - Mother from Cincinnati on 3/31/2011
This is an amazing perfume and I have worn it for 4 years now. People tell me they love it- it smells "relaxing", or "I always know its you in the building". Many many people ask what I am wearing and this never happens with other perfumes. BUT- I can't smell it!!!! All I know is that It feels like me, and not like perfume. It's the HG for me for sure!
By Anonymous - diurector from boston on 3/30/2011
I have worn many a perfume. I'm a fickle creature and have never had a "signature scent". I've owned this for some time and am drawn to it at times when I need comfort. I couldn't explain why that is, but it is. With my vast arsenal of lovely and exotic perfume bottles I have never had a stranger stop me dead to tell me how alluring I smell. Until the other day when I was wearing this. It's not overt or in your face. It's a nuance...a shade that lingers around you. Admittedly, my skin LOVES woody scents and amps them to no end, perhaps that's why this smells so inviting. But I went from liking it to loving it in short order.
By Shannon - Finance from Chester NJ on 3/27/2011
I am a female. My boyfriend didn't even notice the scent. I find the scent to be woodsy and to smell like cedar. My female roommate thinks it smells absolutely phenomenal. Go figure! I'll try to rest of the tester and see what kinds of reactions I get. I'll definitely try it on my boyfriend again!
By Laurel - student from safety harbor on 3/13/2011
I have close to 175 samples and approx. 50 full bottles of perfume. This is absolutely the longest lasting and best smelling fragrance I own!
By Anonymous - from Dothan, AL on 3/4/2011
Liked this better than Escentric 01. Still did not really work for me. Very light and clean. Smelled like cedar on me. Nobody really noticed the smell either.
By Darcie on 1/15/2011
Maybe my expectations of this fragrance were too high, but I was really disappointed. I couldn't smell anything after I used it and other people couldn't either! I much prefer Escentric 03
By LdnGal - from London on 1/7/2011
Breathtaking!!! People would come up to me and snif my hair, and neck and ask what I am wearing. It's clean, incensy and just gorgeous.
By Anonymous - from Tulsa on 10/21/2010
I can't ever smell this scent on me, yet many other people can. It has wierd reactions from people. Some say i small devine, while others have commented on the scent in the office (which happens to only ever happen when I wear it to the office) with "Is someone wearing frakenscence, it smells like church inscence". So not sure if it's a skin thing or the nose of others around you thing. If you're going to spend your cash on an Escentric scent I would purchase Escentric 01.

i love this. for some reason it smells really strongly on me. it reminds me a bit of tam dao by diptique but i agree with 'more of an effect that a scent' i tried it on my boyfriend and its amazing. funny one but worth a go.
By eleni on 1/16/2010
I find that only really short men wear this. And they bathe in it and otherwise, it does have a very faint smell. I think they should rename it Napolen.
By Anonymous - from NY, NY on 9/15/2009
This is hilarious; it´s the very nice smelling perfume version of The Emperors new clothes! Well done, Geza! I love all of his compositions and have them all, gs01-01, Woode and of course the Escentrics and Molecules. The biehl parfümkunstverke02 is ab absolute masterpiece and my hands down favourite - and also my gf´s choice for me.
By Pegus - from Sweden on 9/3/2009
I absolutely loved this scent on my guy, too. However, after he turned out to be the most dishonest person and was a cheater. I can never and hope to never smell this scent again because it reminds me of him. However, today two handsome men walked by me and both of them were wearing it. It's such a distinct and unique scent. It immediately made me hot and go back to their hotel with them... The tall one seduced me... we lounged by the pool all day and made love all night.

I may not be able to smell it on me all of the time but the people around me sure do. This scent is amazing. I can smell it on me and I like what I smell. I go outside and get no less than three or four random people telling me how much they love how I smell and what the scent is. I love hugs at the end of the night as most of my female friends come back for another hug and tell me how great I smell. People I meet for the first time remember me as the guy who smells great. This scent is amazing.
By Michael - Producer from Los Angeles on 9/1/2009
I can't imagine how much of this perfume people had to load on to get these marvelous reactions that they're describing. The initial smell was too faint to even get a proper handle on, but the drydown was, as I suppose should have been expected, the cedar blocks you put in your closet to repel moths (sandalwood sounds so much more exotic), except for a nasty two-hour period in the late afternoon when it went berserk and became reminiscent of Juicy Fruit, of all things. A friend of mine with completely different body chemistry tried it and didn't even get the cedar blocks out of it but said that there were a few times when she thought she smelled like candy. And by the evening, when I thought it was gone, it was; checked the boyfriend for backup and he couldn't smell a thing. I think this scent is more suggestion and hype than anything else.
By Theo - attorney from NYC on 8/12/2009
This is really a stand out scent. Each and every time I wear it, women comment. I'm buying another bottle just to make sure it isn't discontinued or something before I run out of the current. I can see me and this scent for the next 20 years.
By Mike - from LOS ANGELES on 8/2/2009
Add one more vote to the "Emperor's New Clothes" contingent. I got a sample and put it on, and I might as well have drizzled water on my arm. I tucked it into my pocket and went to work. Whenever I stuck my hand in my pocket, I was reminded of the vial, and I put more on. After a while, I could smell something very faint if I stuck my nose to my wrist and inhaled deeply. A very pleasant, fresh-air, line-dried sheets smell. But so FAINT. I finally asked someone. No, she did not smell anything. At home, before supper, I dumped the rest of the vial onto my chest and rubbed it around with my wrist. Now, I was wearing the entire sample bottle. During supper (cold chef's salad), my husband did not notice anything. After supper, I hugged him and asked if he smelled anything. No. I had him put his face right into my chest (he didn't mind) and yes, he finally could smell it. Very faint, very nice. Maybe I'll try it in winter, when my skin can 'bake' it inside a sweater...?
By Prairiefire - office manager from Wisconsin on 6/25/2009
Folks! This is a very unique fragrance. It really is all that its cracked up to be. It has a nice musky/sandlewood scent. Its never overwhelming, it just sits close to the body and makes you want to keep smelling it. I'm straight and attractive and the ladies just love it! I repeat, they love it on me. It really is an "effect". The dry down is very nice and lasts a really long time. I'm not sure how some cannot smell it....maybe fragrances shouldn't be your passion if your sense of smell is so off.
By Mike D - from Chicago on 6/16/2009
I got a sample of this scent, and several hours later after it settled into my skin I fell in love with it, and I ordered a whole bottle. It starts out very crisp woodsy on me, but after a few hours it turns warm and creamy woodsy. I can actually smell it on myself the whole time, and it lasted for a full 24 hours... How this scent smells on a person clearly has everything to do with individual chemistry... buy the sample before buying the whole bottle!
By Holly - from Atlanta on 4/26/2009
Very subtle, sandalwood skin scent. Platonic friends leaned in as if they might change their mind . . .

My fiance and I smelled this intoxicating scent at the airport and followed the poor woman so that we could find the name of it. We both wear the perfume and love it, however... when I wear it, I don't smell it but get HUNDREDS of compliments on the perfume and the constant attention of my fiance. And when he wears it, the same thing happens. I don't think this is a fragrance the wearer is supposed to enjoy but I LOVE IT!
By Anonymous - Psychologist from Memphis on 1/14/2009
I fell in love with Molecule 01 at the laundromat. I kept smelling the most intoxicating, warm, sweet, woodsy scent and I had to know where it was coming from. Finally, I tracked down the woman who was wearing it, and I now own my very own bottle. I have to admit, I was freaked out at first by the 'peek-a-boo' game this fragrance plays! When I cannot smell it, other people apparently can! However, I am very happy with its performance. Its lasting power is simply incredible. Even when I come home from the office at the end of the day, I am able to catch this scent in waves. I always get the most compliments when I wear this scent. It is certainly a favourite in my collection.
By M - Print Production from New York, NY on 11/18/2008
Molecule 01 is probably the most frustrating scent I have ever smelled (or tried to smell, I should say). I flat out adore its sister perfume, Escentric 01, which is 65% ISO E Super and so thought I would love this even more. Well, I was wrong. Molecule 01 is like spraying my arm with water that is VERY faintly scented with rubbing alcohol and cedar. And then I smell nothing. Hats off to whoever can smell this and the similarly elusive LesNezL’Antimatiere.
By Anonymous - from Houston, TX on 8/7/2008
Whem I first sprayed it on I couldn't smell anything, BUT THEN... WAUW! Not TOO heavy, but spicy in a good sense. My boyfriend thought it was a fragrance for men - but no ITS MINE!!! Its not too girly, but not a mens fragrance either. Love it!!!
By Pia  - Economist from Denmark on 6/30/2008
This fragrance rocks. Bought it and I like the sexy, spicy/musky woody fragrance it evokes on my skin. Wore it the other day and had numerous people stop and ask me what I was wearing. It lasts quite well on skin, actually so much so, that I can smell it on my clothes for days afterwards. Can't wait to try to the new molecule 2 range !
By Tania - from Los Angeles on 5/27/2008
Do you know what this smells like to me? money. seriuosly. if you ever get a crisp 10 or 20 from the bank smell it...this perfume to me smells like money. i am used to perfumes not smelling great on me so i guess that i'm not upset that it doesn't work with my chemistry. interesting though, i think you would have to try it yourself to see how it reacts to your chemistry.
By Kim - retail from Toronto on 4/15/2008
Wearing this I get more positive comments from strangers than ANY other scent. And this is from one with a fragrance wardrobe. It is a slight scent, though it seems to fill the room. Masculine, definately. Great longevity on me. Will keep this one in the wardrobe as long as they continue it.
By Anonymous - from Los Angeles on 4/2/2008
I've tried this a couple of times just to give it a fair go. Initial smell on skin was oriental, warm ....... then it disappeared and never ever came back!
By MarieClaire - Manager from Australia on 4/1/2008
Tried this one a couple of different times, but it's not me, reminds me of a nice fresh masculine scent so I would prefer it on a man in hot hot weather.
By MarieClaire - Manager on 3/18/2008
Yup...I tried this today and it disappeared...in about 5 minutes. It was nice while it lasted though. I keep waiting for it to reappear...maybe not. The Escentric 01 is absolutely divine though...similar, but the disappearing act doesn't seem as convincing! :)
By Armypixie - musician from Tacoma on 2/29/2008
I don't know about this stuff... it's interesting on an intellectual level, but is that primarily what I look for in a perfume? Not really. I can't comment on what it smells like, as I have never been able to smell it, and I have worn it three times on three separate days. However - here are the impressions I received: when I first put it on the first day, my husband said "Did you just put on some perfume? It's really strong" !!! I thought this was funny since I couldn't smell it at all. He said it smelled OK, "like a feminine woody smell". Walked around in it for 2 more days, got no comments, so finally asked a friend, and after much sniffing, she said she detected a very faint, pleasant ozonic smell - like clean mountain air. It's basicallly postmodern perfume - you can't smell it but others may. This kind of freaks me out, because I don't want to be walking around wearing something that to some people "smells really strong" when I can't even smell it - hard to judge how much to put on (I've only ever worn small dabs on wrists and inner elbows). Also, part of the pleasure of wearing perfume, for me, is being able to smell it myself, so this is not for me. Plus, $135 for 3.5 ounces of EDT is quite pricey for something that you and others may or may not even be able to smell. Hmmm. I don't mind paying top dollar for a quality fragrance I love, but this smacks a bit of the emperor's new clothes to me :(

Just got a sample of this. On first application, I caught a hint of pleasant cedar. After that, the scent seemed to just fade, and disappear.

Molecule 01 is exactly how a lot of other reviewers felt. It has a very addictive smell to it, when you can smell it. When you think the smell is gone it pops up out of nowhere. The fragrance also smells like it is constantly changing and you get whiffs of different notes. I'll be buying this quite soon! I wish it was in a parfum form however as it might make the fragrance more intense!

I am a big fan of Molecule 01. Just finishing 4th bottle and will continue. I love it!

have had this perfume for a while and it isnt the men that are noticing it its the women! I wonder if its better off sold as a mens fragrance cos I have had allsorts of women loving the scent - men would get really lucky...!

This is a such a unique and amazing fragrance. I received my sample and immediately was captivated by it. I have a drawer full of different fragrances (I'm a fragrance fanatic), but this is the most different, unusual, unique fragrance. I thought the staying power is great. Even at night after I applied that morning, my daughter says "You smell good". Hate that its so expensive but would probably be worth the investment if you're a true perfume lover.

Wow - I read with interest all the great comments about Molecule 01 and then received my sample. Mind blowing is all I can say. I put a small amount on before bed last night and when making my bed this morning I had the most gorgeous scent eminating from my sheets I simply cannot wait to go back to bed! It truly is such a pretty scent and now I am looking so forward to ordering my bottle. Can't wait to see my boyfriend tonight to see his reaction at it, it is all I have been talking about since I first came into contact with someone wearing it. I am making a special note to NOT tell him that I have the sample and that I am wearing it. He always makes comments on my fragrances so let's see if he notices how intruiging I smell tonight. A+ to Molecules 01 - a winner in my books.

Whoops posted the below comment to the wrong scent. It was meant for Ecentric 01

This kind of smells like a less intense version of Perfumeie Generale's Yuzu ab Irato which is one of my faves. Nice but ill stick with PG.

At first I thought that I wouldn't like this as I couldn't smell a hint of anything from just sniffing the vile. I quickly changed my .mind after putting it on. Its a delightful dry woods scent that ebbed and flowed, dissappered and reappeared throughout the day. Long lasting - I would catch wiffs of it as a would wake throughout the night. Very soothing a sophisticated. I wish it came in a smaller bottle.

As others have noted, this is a very strange perfume indeed. I quite liked the woody, slightly spicy smell when I first applied it, but it seemed to vanish very quickly. I reapplied before going to bed, just to give it another chance. The following day, I went away for a long weekend. When I returned, my pillows and sheets smelled beautifully of cedarwood (for 10 minutes). I don't know if I will buy it, but it certainly is intriguing.

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!!

Emperors new clothes? That is what I thought when the shop assistant explained that this perfume didn't smell when you put it on but was guaranteed to attract the right mate? I dont know about that but it certainly caused a stir. Firstly my husband couldn't smell anything and several of the people I worked with couldn't smell anything either. I was starting to think that the hype was a gimick. Then I got a wiff and started to try and find where the smell was coming from but it went as soon as it came. Then strange things started to happen. Complete strangers would approach me to ask what perfume I was wearing and I caught a man trying to sniff me in a queue at the bank. Definately worth giving it a try and when you get a wiff of the smell yourself you will love it.

Maybe it's interesting to other people, but to me it smells like my the inside of my Grandma's cedar chest - not particularly what I want to walk around smelling like.
By Anonymous - Med. Tech. from Madison, WI on 4/17/2007
iso e super.. oh hell yes. it's really unique. but not the same effect on everyone. make sure to try it before committing! if u are one of the lucky ones (like me) that it shines for, you will be overjoyed!
By rima - chef from tel aviv on 3/14/2007
This stuff is weird I bought it cos the woman of my dreams likes woody fragrances and (you're not going to believe it) we are now an item! Yet some people simply cannot detect it and others can recognise your aroma from across the room. I'm off to get some more!
By Anonymous - General Manager from Manchester UK on 2/26/2007
So subtle, warm, very slightly woodsy, almost like fresh cut walnut wood. I had to wait a few minutes for this one to develop. It stays close to the body but does not leave quickly. I love it!

There are much more interesting and expensive molecules than Iso E Super. 135 bucks for 3.5oz of Iso E? You must be ridiculing customers.
By Anonymous on 10/10/2006
My uncle bought me this after meeting the designer (Giza Schroen). I think that it's an amazingly unusual scent. It reappears at different points in the day, but you can never seem to find it on your own. Like Heinz ketchup, it wont come out until it's ready!
By Anonymous on 8/28/2006
Kind of a boring, super soft cedar scent. Nothing special to report here.

I cannot smell this fragrance on me but the first time that I used it, people kept asking me what was that "spicy" perfume I was wearing... Everyone comment was very positive. I think I like the effect it has on people more than the scent that I cannot really smell.
By Dom - from London on 5/10/2006
I love this scent. I can not stop thinking about it. very odd. $135 is way to much for any scent I believe but this one just might change my mind (but then maybe not). Get a sample !
By George - from NYC on 5/2/2006
The whole point about this perfume is that you can't smell it! The molecule is so large that your sense of smell is blocked, however... when other people encounter you they can smell it (quite strongly) for a short time as well, until the same thing happens to them - it's amazing. Rest assured, you are perfumed, but the effect isn't inescapable (like [P]issy Miyake for instance)

i am such a big fan of luckyscent. i live in florida and everywhere you go everyone wears the same darn thing. so.... i have to say read comments but please try for yourself. this scent is lovely. crisp, warm and sensuous. it IS lasting on me.
By louise kahle - talent agent from st pete on 1/26/2006
I put this on and came back to read the comments. I agree. I can smell very little. What I can smell is not unpleasant, but this is not one I will add to the collection.
By Elaine - from Tarrytown, NY on 1/19/2006
Sample first. Has a nice, unoffensive sandalwood smell, that quickly fades. Almost no staying power on me. It actually smells quite nice, however generic, and you'd have to shower in it for anyone else to smell it.
By Daniel - from Boston on 1/18/2006
Smells like clean air? I'm not sure if i smell anything at all...very faint.
By JR on 12/16/2005
I've tested this twice now and can't smell it at all. Not a thing. I've heard that some people can't smell certain musks, so perhaps Molecule 01 contains a musk or similar essence that I simply can't detect. Either that or it's the exact scent of the inside of my nose. Hmmm... (Rating it a 3 because it's not at all offensive, just not... THERE. For me.)
