Sleek, minimalist cases for maximum portability. Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules is a Woody Floral Musk fragrance for women and men. Molecule 01 was launched in 2006. The nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen.
Each metal case is blasted with stainless steel ‘sand’ to burnish the surface to a soft lustre. It is then anodised for high durability.
The upper face of the Molecule 01 case lid is stamped with the letter m in binary code: 01101101 and the number 01.
The gentle warmth of Molecule 01 shouldn’t be as seductive as it is yet that’s what probably made this now-classic scent so ground-breaking upon its launch. Based around a single note (Iso E Super) it doesn’t go in all guns blazing flashing its wares like a can-can dancer.
Iso E Super is a molecule that hovers close to the skin to create an indefinable aura around the wearer. It is characterised by a hyper-modern cedarwood note with a velvety sensation.
Iso E Super has a marked intermittence. To the wearer, it seems to vanish and then re-appear. This is due to the way it bonds with receptors in the olfactory system, only slowly releasing to make way for a fresh charge of the molecule on the receptors.
Iso E Super does not exist in nature. It was created in a laboratory at IFF in 1973.
The Molecule 01 fragrance is radically minimalist. It contains no odorants except the aroma-molecule, Iso E Super. Those customers who find the Molecule fragrances too subtle may wish to try the Escentric fragrances, which will always have a more powerful diffusion.
