Yes, it is pure iso e super as the fragrant ingredient, but it is a good quality iso e super for sure and I like the way it works. This fragrance is perhaps the biggest compliment getter there is. Try a few big sprays of this and wait for the comments, people love it and are not offended by it. Most people who wear Molecule 01 will become anosmic to the smell of it within a couple of minutes, if not sooner but, when you sniff your clothing the next day you can really smell it again.
    Ok, well I'll try this tomorrow and see what result I get. But right now I feel more than a little ripped off. Frequently wrong though so lets see.

    I own it... had 14 pairs of panties thrown at me from 13 woman... and 1 man.

    It's a "nothing" scent. I can't smell it. But the wife can. Weird how it works. Overpriced for what it is.

    I actually like it.
    Like most linear fragrances however, I do find it grows a bit tiresome by the end of the day.
    Still, it's the perfect post- Duchamp perfume.

    Buzzlepuff hit the nailon this one.

    This exactly! Very well said. It's not your typical composition, its strange, but the smell is good, is more like an experience than a perfume. I like it but I don't like the fact that I can't smell it. Someone mentioned Kinsky, by the same company, and thats is a good composition.

    It's OK, not very exciting to me. I think Escentric 03 is the best of their range.

    Had it...weird scent. I could smell it for 30min then it would disappear then come back very briefly a couple of hours later then disappear. Some ppl could smell it on me some could smell nothing, those who could smell it said it was strong and they loved it. Wouldn't buy it again...not worth the price

    Molecule 01 is a strange one. There are a lot of mistaken thoughts about it.

    People think it's a scent that the person wearing it can't smell, but others can. That's not true.
    People think it's some sort of trick - maybe using pheromones. Nope.
    People think it's a waste of money. This totally depends on your own nose and your own tastes, so only you can decide how much of your money you'd spend - if any - to own this stuff.

    Molecule 01 is made from nothing but Iso E Super, diluted enough to be wearable. I have a bottle of pure Iso E Super and, WHOA, it's crazy strong. Most perfume ingredients are. I think Molecule 01 is something like 14% Iso E Super and 86% alcohol. Making it stronger definitely does not make it smell better. If anything, making it stronger increases the problems some people have with it. It's easy to turn a homemade batch into a scent you can't smell one minute, and the next, it requires everyone to evacuate the building.

    Some people can't smell Iso E Super because it is a large molecule - large enough in size, as a particle, that their noses can't handle it. In other words, it drifts right through your nose, undetected. I kind of wonder if diluting it even more might help those people a little. Maybe, with fewer molecules overall in the composition, their noses might be more likely to detect it? I wonder this because a very common comment about Molecule 01 is that people say the smell comes and goes. Anyway... I wonder if a weaker batch might be better for those people. I can't test my theory since I have no trouble smelling the stuff.

    To me, Molecule 01 smells kind of like cedar and a citrus combo of lemon and a bit of orange. It smells synthetic, in that it doesn't smell like a natural scent, but it smells synthetic in a good way. There's something enticing about the scent. Something about it demands attention without being rude. It's kind of like when a cool breeze comes along on a hot day when the air seemed still. Ooh, it's nice, and you can't help noticing.

    It's a weird one. But if you can't smell it, don't make the mistake of thinking nobody can. It's just your nose. I assume all of our noses have a few blind spots.

    Before even thinking about buying a bottle of this stuff, I strrrrrrrrrrrrrrongly suggest buying a sample. I'm glad I did.

    I bought the Iso E Super for less than $10...As a stand alone frag...worthless. as a foundation for any light airy frag, it projects it like a rocket.

    Lol cheers for sharing

    The names and story around this fragrance get me interested from time to time, then you read reviews and eh.

    This Iso E increasing projection of airy scents is interesting though.

    Keep in mind, Iso E Super has a smell of its own, so you're adding fragrance to fragrance. I dabble in making my own scents and Iso E Super is an easy one to start with. Iso E Super with a bit of bergamot and/or citrus is simple and smells nice. Read the reviews of Molecule 01 and you'll see people talk about getting complimented. Add a little (note that word!) something to it, mostly for your own enjoyment, and it's a best of both worlds.

    Actually... I bet Love & Luck would layer marvelously with Molecule 01. Love & Love wears like fruit water with no base at all. And Molecule 01 is more or less a base with no top notes at all. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom, I bet that combo could be good.

    If you've got access to grain alcohol it should work just fine (a flask of Everclear should be $10 or less).

    I have a homemade version and it's absolutely awesome. Projects like a beast. Don't expect a non-linear scent and you won't be disappointed. Bunch of people here well aware that it's a basenote chemical trying to smell the "topnotes!"

    100% ISO -E super: so many noses won't detect sent, all I got was Vaseline vibe and I do know a few that rave about this one ....go figure but it's a huge pass for me....Peace

    I got a very faint sandalwood scent on my skin. Wore it to school and it got noticed which I found strange because I had to bury my nose in my forearm to get a whiff. It's oddly beautiful but not worth the cash for a full bottle. Get a small sample from lucky scent. I enjoyed testing it and you may too

    Shh...I mixed a Millesime Imperial oil from commonscents with Love & Luck and added a bit of Iso-E Super and I get lots of compliments. It is a warm weather killer. I have just Iso-E in pure grain alcohol and put it on first and layer on top of it. It does add to the projection and it is a large molecule. Just google iso-e super and research. Iso-E in alcohol has a cedar/woody scent. You will not be able to smell it after a few minutes but everyone else will.

    Nothing -- it's the same thing. Molecule 01 is just ISO E Super and alcohol.

    It sounds like a big scam, right? And to a degree it is as you can make your own for dirt cheap. But Geza actually did something quite smart with this -- he took one of the major staples of perfumery and showcased it. I think the gesture is quite brilliant (Molecule 02 is just Ambroxan, BTW) and I actually wear my own mix of both quite often. The whole pheromone aspect is nonsense, but the scent does seem to disappear on you while being detectable by others. All that's happening is the molecules of ISO E are large and your nose can become tired and anosmic to it quite fast. It's still there, though, as the stuff lasts for days on fabric.

    I agree with all the positive remarks. I enjoy its simplistic, sparkling cedar. It may become anosmic, but its there. This stuff lasts forever, days even on clothes and has great projection. I first discovered this in a coffee shop, where the atmosphere is thick of coffee. I asked the guy what it was and he told me.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
