Escentric Molecules ‘Escentric 01’ Fragrance | Product Review

When it comes to perfume, I am a total bore. I have my favourites (Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy‘, ‘Alien‘ by Thierry Mugler, Vera Wang ‘Princess‘, and, of course, ‘Flowerbomb‘ from Viktor & Rolf), and I rarely try anything new. I tell myself it’s’ because buying a perfume you don’t like is a pretty pricey mistake to make, but the truth is, I’ve been stuck in my florally, sweet-scented comfort zone for a while. However, after spritizing myself with ‘Escentric 01‘ from Escentric Molecules a couple of months ago in Liberty of London’s incredible fragrance department, it was love at first sniff. When three or four friends wanted to know what perfume I was wearing later that day, I knew I had to have it.

The lesser-known cousin of Escentric Molecules ‘Molecule 01‘, it contains the same innovative fragrance as the original (Iso E Super, which interacts with your natural pheromones to create a unique scent), but with a much more peppery, sharper, undertone. Like the original, however, this creates a smell that lingers, resurfacing now and then to keep it fresh, and keep the compliments rolling in.

The travel size will set you back £38, including the case, with refills costing around £27, so it’s a worthwhile investment. It’s pretty great to know I can just throw my perfume into my handbag/suitcase without having to worry about it shattering, and it looks pretty good on my nightstand, too.
Obviously, with perfumes, I’d always recommend you go and try it out before you make the commitment to buy, but I’d definitely suggest you make a beeline for the Escentric Molecules stand next time you spot one (the only stockist I can seem to find is Liberty of London or Harvey Nichols, but if you know of any more, please do share!).

Escentric Molecules ‘Escentric 01’ with the travel case is available in Liberty of London, or on their website, here, and from Cult Beauty, here, for an RRP of £38.

Are you in a perfume ‘comfort-zone’, or do you like to try new scents?
