    1) I have no problem with the longevity or projection of it. My wife also loves it and can smell it on me many hours after I put it on.

    If by "perform" you mean "last", boy does it ever. It didn't exactly project, it came and went in a sort of laundry-day torture. Every time I thought it had finally gone, I'd get another big wave of it. (In case you haven't guessed, I really disliked it. It smells like Canadian Tide, and gave me a headache. But it didn't wash off, oh no way nope.)

    Not only does it perform as well as or better than the average fragrance, I find it easy to detect in other fragrances, especially many hours into their development on skin. And, by "it" I mean Iso E Super.

    I can get more of an aroma from tap water, so I voted for the last option, no. 5

    I tried Molecule 01 several times before, and I smelled something: a gimmick.

    Probably the most blatant example of successful gimmick. Kudos.

    Well, the mixed response to the poll actually sums up my impressions. Tried it from a tester in store - approx 4-5 sprays. Could scarcely smell a thing - not like spraying on a conventional fragrance at-all. I decided it would be the perfect scent match for the emperor and his new clothes. ...

    3-4 Hrs later I arrive home and my other half raves about how amazing I smell

    Weird

    Agree fully... I can detect it in other fragrances also (ie Terre D'Hermes). I'm planning on rocking a lot of Molecule 01 this spring and summer. Note: it seems logical to over spray this one, careful.
