    Default Escentric Molecules - Molecule 01 Extremely Irritating

    I had the chance to sample this today. Started off great in my opinion, similar to White Musk by The Body Shop. Wouldn't have bought it, but rated it 4* after the first hour and a half.

    I've had it on my arm for around 5 hours now and it's really started to annoy me. I keep getting whiffs of the stuff and it's making me angry and I feel sick of it.

    Does anyone that owns it find the stuff irritating?

    I have a small sample atomizer of this stuff and I can barely smell it at all even straight out of the bottle.

    I much prefer Escentric 01 but If you're annoyed by Molecule 01's longevity I firmly disencourage you to try it.

    It doesn't work from the bottle you need to wear it for a while (so it warms and dries) to get the effect.

    I don't own it but have tested it and had the same experience of whiffs coming and going - this is the Iso E Super at work. It did seem to me to be a fragrance that would become very monotonous if worn regularly. I put this one down as great to experience but not own.

    I completely agree. If the Molecule 01 gets a bit to chemically austere or abrasive, give the Escentric 01 version a try. I like it much more.

    i love molecule 01 and yes it is spanish fly. It definitely comes and goes throughout the day to my nose...i believe one does become anosmic to it, but everyone around you can still smell it, especially when your skin warms.
    Current Top 5:

    Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron

    I'll have to revisit this one soon.

    Presumably then it would be a good one for warmer weather given how it is activated by body heat?
