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