Molecule 01

Chit chat September 22, 2014 Naomi

Molecule 01 is one of those much wrote about and much hyped ‘cult beauty items’. It has been all over the beauty pages and features on countless blogs, due to it being a not your run of the mill type of perfume. I have been itching to get my hands on it for some time now, and though I have read many varied reviews on it, some good, some bad, I wanted to see what the fuss was for myself.

I decided to go for the travel size just in case I loathed it on the first spray. The idea behind Molecule 01 is that it is made with just one molecule called Iso E super. This is used in the perfume industry to bulk out perfume and make it more musky and heavier. The theory is it works like a natural pheromone making you smell more attractive to the opposite sex. Now I am not easily convinced of bold beauty claims so I was highly skeptical at this point. There has been lots of research that has gone into this and many bloggers have had compliments, here are my findings.

My first spray was interesting, it smells to me very much like the old Body shop Musk I used to wear in my very early teens. I liked that a lot so that was fine by me. I do get a hint of woodiness and in some respects it is a bit like cologne. Now as we know smell is subjective, I got my  Daughter to try it and she said “Mum I hate it, it stinks!” So there you go, clearly not everybody’s cup of tea.

During the day I will say the smell was not as strong, and some bloggers have said you can’t smell it on yourself at all, only others can?? Not convinced of that as I got subtle whiffs of it all day. The more I could smell it the more I really loved it. It smells fresh and clean and lovely {sorry I am not good at describing smells}.

On to the Compliments. Did men fall at my feet? was I irresistible at all? Sadly no. One female did say I smelled lovely but that was about it. Maybe you need to put more on I thought, so the next day I sprayed quite a lot on myself, choked, and then sprayed some more for good measure. Still Nothing.

Conclusion.. Is Molecule 01 a lovely perfume that I will gladly enjoy using?? yes, does it make you smell gorgeous to hunky men?? No!

Have you tried Molecule 01? did men/women go crazy over you?? Leave a comment and your Blog links..

    Gosh, White Musk, that brings memories of my youth flooding back to me. Not sure I would be so keen on it now though.

    I don’t think it is as strong as white musk Choclette, it seems to be more subtle.x

    hahaha lovely review!! you would expect a train of men waiting to kiss your feet just from the perfume! I think it’s always a bit overdone when it comes to promoting these scents.
