Escentric Molecules - Molecule 01 review : Sexy cyborg • Scentertainer

Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 is a very unique fragrance, as it only has one note, being Iso E Super. This fragrance does not really have a scent, but more a sort of effect. Every now and then you will get a whiff of this fragrance, but you yourself won’t really notice it that much. When you do get a whiff of this fragrance though, it smells nice and woody, and almost soapy at some times. But, the main benefit of this fragrance is the effect it has on others. It is mesmerizing! Other people will really notice this fragrance, at least a lot more than you yourself will. Because of its delicate nature and generally pleasant effect, Molecule 01 is an amazing fragrance to go with when you are going to the gym.
