I really wanted to love this but just can''t quite get into it. I was hoping for a little kick up from the regular Molecule 2 which I absolutely love. On me this one has somewhat of a faint metallic smell. I tried the sample on a few different occasions, at home and at work and I''ve determined it''s just not for me.

This has become my go-to fragrance. It is bright and fresh but in a way that has an edge. My usual scents are more of a peppery note. This seems to me to be more woody but with a tinge of metal. It makes me happy when I put it on which is a great perk on most days. The sillage is strong but not overwhelming.

I love all the Molecules but this is probably my favorite. I think its interesting how some people say it smells like alcohol or its awful, since this is a scent that reacts to your ph it makes me wonder what is different about their''s to make it smell bad... unfortunate for them, i guess. I get so many compliments every time I wear this scent as well as all the other molecules. I teach dance and sometimes the rooms can get stinky and I will walk in and have kids following me around smelling me. LOL.

Just received a sample and i really love the clean fresh scent. I want to purchase a bottle of this.

This is my second review. I just wanted to say that I have been getting compliments everyday when I wear this scent. It is so natural smelling and light but still present, just not rude. I''m a forever fan!

Love it. Bought a full bottle. I wear this on days I want to smell awesome without it seeming like I''m trying to smell awesome.

I have worn this for years, having searched for a scent I could wear with my perfume sensitivity (migraines). It is lovely, mineraly and warm, like Molecule 02 but with a more mineral edge and slightly more complex. between the two I prefer the Molecule. A skin scent. I tried Juliette Has a Gun- straight ambroxan- but it literally had no smell after 5 minutes and was very different. Everyone tells me how great I smell and asks what I wear. It stays on clothing for a very long time. It is difficult to smell on yourself at first but hard to overdo.

I so wanted to love this fragrance, but it doesn''t even remotely work on my skin. Smells like an old person''s apartment in an old building in an old city.

I love this fragrance. It stays very close to the skin--no perfume cloud. The initial smell of alcohol gives way to a beautiful, softly clean and feminine scent after only a few minutes on my skin. Hard to describe, but really nice.

I once passed a woman on the street in Milan who was wearing this fragrance. I stopped her to ask what it was and have been obsessed ever since. This fragrance is intoxicatingly clean and earthy. On first smell it changes my mood and makes me overcome with a strange emotion like happiness. No one word can describe such a beautiful fragrance. It wears all day and just when you think it is gone, boom! Back with a vengeance. It creeps into your nostrils and keeps you wanting more. This is a work of art and belongs on every manwoman''s perfume tray. Wow!

I tried Escentric 01 with icky results, and held out hope for E-02... with marginally better results. What was supposed to be bright and refreshing ended up smelling like an astringent soap. Not the memorable scent I''ve been looking for... won''t bother repeating this one, either. The search continues...

Hospital. Hospital. And again hospital. Nothing sexy and elusive.

This has got to be the best fragrance I''ve gotten in a very long time. A few days ago, I went to appointment and some people were saying that someone was smelling so incredible and one of the women said that she had to know what that fragrance is, I just sat back and heard them describe what they thought of it. I left, and had to return 2 hours later and heard some of them say that the person with the scent had returned and saying how wonderful it was. I did not say that it was me because the didn''t ask me directly and for fear of seeming arrogant. It is a definite keeper! LOVE LOVE IT!~

This scent is absolutely breath-taking!! It is everything I could want in a fragrance and more. It has great staying power. I receive countless compliments on this fragrance. It has a clean fresh scent but also something else that I can''t desribe. I absolutely love it!! Please dont pass this one up. It is worth every penny!

First, this is not a "beautiful" scent, one that makes one think of richness and luxury. Nonetheless, it is a strangely and wonderfully compelling scent. It puts me in the mind of certain scents, such as the smell of a brand-new car, or a freshly opened pack of cigerattes, that are very compelling and almost edible in their strength. I think this is wonderful. I actually appreciate the sharp alcoholic edge to it, and it does smell like those alcohol wipes the nurse uses on the crook of your arm when heshe is drawing blood. For some reason I really like that. However, the real genius of this scent is the drydown. It does rather weirdly mutate into a woodsy green smell. I LOVE it!

cedar. Straight up cedar and warm skin.

On me this is straight-up musky cedar. So strong and won''t wash of my skin. So disappointed!!

I bought 01 last year & absolutely love it, so had to try this one. Don''t judge it when you first put it on (it has a strong alcohol smell initially) - let it sink into your skin for a while. I find this not quite as peppery on first application as 01, and it also has this fresh undertone to it which is hard to describe - I can still smell ''waves'' of this freshness the day after (ie even after showering). I sit there wondering what that nice smell is & then realise it''s the perfume I put on yesterday. It''s not only unique in the way it smells, but also in the way the fragrance appears and disappears throughout the day, and when you can''t smell it - others can.

Strong black pepper!!

Another reviewer mentioned rubbing alcohol, and I can only agree. On me this is overpoweringly alcoholic, and not in a nice way. Luckily it didn''t last long on my skin.

AMAZING!! great sillage and drydown. much better than 01.
By  on 6/22/2008
Wow...I''m very surprised at the high ratings for this scent! This was a straight up gin and tonic on me with a base of rubbing alcohol. It became more asceptic the longer it sat on me skin. It wasn''t sparkling and fun...just *sterile*!! Pass....

I have been in love with Escentric 01 since the moment I first tried it. Bought Escentric 02 without sampling first...something I would never normally do, considering the price. I definitely have no regrets. 02 is more effervescent than 01, but has the same mysterious, woodsy characteristics and evokes the same "damn, you smell good response." Geza Schoen does it again!

I just sampled this from a store in Brooklyn and went through a series of emotions. Ha, it''s not a breathtaking, gimme gimme gimme scent but more of a subtle "I know I smell good" scent. At first I couldn''t really smell much besides an alcohol note, but the drydown turned woodsy and lasted for an hour or so. After that, a faint scent would catch my nose when the wind changed or I moved my arm and I loved it. It''s super pricey in my opinion, so I would totally recommend getting a sample first. Give this one a chance... I think it''s nicer than 01.

This scent reminds me of CdG Synthetic: Soda. The difference is, where Soda is bubbly, Escentric is woodsy. Soda tickled my nose and made me feel like a kid again. Escentric 02 made feel sexy. I prefer Escentric 02, but you may find you like Soda as a substitute (it''s about 50 cents per ml cheaper). Take advantage of lucky scent fragrance samples! I really like both Escentric 02 and Soda very much.
