I don’t post about perfume on here very often, so when I do you know it must be really special.
I have a very specific taste when it comes to perfume. I like a combination of musk, vanilla, wood, and amber – anything that resembles an incense really will do. I had heard about the Escentric Molecules line a while back, but for the longest time it was only available in other countries, and I’m not the kind of person who can just purchase a fragrance online and hope for the best. My favourite local beauty boutique, Jacob and Sebastian, recently started stocking the brand, and the moment I smelled the Molecule 01 scent I knew I had to have it.
Molecule 01 has quickly become my every day scent. The unisex fragrance has a very distinct musky, woodsy, amber scent, but the key ingredient behind this cult classic is one single note, Iso E Super.
What is Iso E Super? It’s an aroma-molecule that doesn’t exist in nature – it was created in a laboratory in 1973 and originally used in small portions in other perfumes. What makes Molecule 01 so unique is the fact that it’s made entirely of Iso E Super.
