I get a very astringent non-natural smell...perhaps a little wood...
If you think you're unable to smell this perfume - don't despair. Spray aplenty on a piece of paper and let it dry, then put it in your pocket or wallet or bag for a few minutes (it seems to smell even stronger when in contact with textile). Then you'll hopefully perceive the scent: A salty aura that's literally mouthwatering. I can't really find any other words to describe it than "salty". The sillage is superb. As strange as it may sound; this scent smells just as strong/strongly when you're one meter away as it does when you're ten centimeters away.
When I wore this the first time I was well aware of that difficult-to-describe-salty scent. Now my nose seem to have adjusted and I only perceive the faintest hint of wood/woods when I sniff my wrists, and it's so soft it's barely a skin scent. That is unfortunate (and sad!) since that salty-like scent is extraordinary. The good thing is - as xiikzodz has mentioned - that this sticks for days to the clothes you wore along with the perfume.
To me this smells like sex - not true to nature-sex and not in a dirty way. Just, well; sexy. VERY sexy.
I've put off writing this review in the hope of acquiring a clearer understanding of this fragrance. Unfortunately after repeated attempts I didn't get that much further. MOLECULE 02 has a quiet albeit fizzy cedar-tinged start and settles down into a warm mildly woodsy skin scent. I don't really smell anything in the sillage even when I flail my wrists about in the air.
If I have to describe it in one word it will be: ELUSIVE. Sometimes I appreciate its artistry and enjoy the warm glow it imparts on my skin. At other times, I'm just left frustrated with its somewhat shy and retiring nature. I think I'll pass.
If you hang your washing out in some, to me indefinite, tree grove, on a hot day and wait till the evening it will eventually smell the way M02 smells to me. Now imagine that the scent lingers for days on everything it had contact with. If you are unfortunate enough to dislike the scent you will hate it because it just wouldn't go. To me it's a delight.
Tested this again today and I'm still gutted.
This is said to be pretty much pure Iso Super E and about 50 percent of people can barely smell it at all, to the other 50 % its amazing, overwhelming and everpresent.
I'm in the first group, my brother told me he smelled it distinctively from a few metres distance and he was more than fond of it.
To me its a skinscent, a little sandalwood, a little syntheticness and a little sweetness but overall nothing spectacular.
I'l give it a neutral because of its effect on others and because its definitely not bad but I'm missing the show.
