Sample has just arrived and could smell it through an envelope, a sealed baggie and the bottle . Not convinced it's my kind of scent but was impressed by the potency and was looking forward to trying it on.
Sprayed in the usual places (wrists, cleavage, neck, remainder in hair) and......I can't smell it. At all. Nothing.
Is it meant to do this? .
I don't wear perfume for other people, I wear it for me to enjoy and sniff throughout the day. The idea of a scent that is only perceptible to others is pointless.
Have been sniffing the bottle on and off all day and have decided I hate it.
It smells exactly like something from the 90's but I can't quite place it. All I get is pink pepper, it reminds me of Paul Smith Extreme Woman but the Paul Smith is much softer and better blended. Will be giving it away.
I bought the 'fake' version as recommended on here. The bottle itself smells quite odd & a bit 'fishy' but the perfume when sprayed on is lovely. Unfortunately not a single person has commented on it so I'm not sure it works on me!
I have Molecules01 and I wear it occasionally under my normal perfume. Whenever I do, people go batshit. Literally coming up and burying their noses in my neck. Men and women. I'd read that some people had a strong response to it but I thought that was just marketing bullshit. My partner, however is completely oblivious to it. If I wear it on its own, nothing happens. It's a very odd phenomenon.
I completely forgot I also have the actual ISO E Super. I've mixed 3 or 4 batches but none of them was as nice as Molecule 01. Close, but not quite. I've never tried layering it under other scents but will definitely give it a go!
I have it too and can't smell it on myself but I get lots of complements when i wear it. I hardly ever do wear it though - it seems a bit pointless when I can't smell it, part of the joy of wearing perfume is having the odd sniff of my wrist during the day. Will try wearing it under something else as suggested above, not sure i will really be get round to doing this regularly.
