Iso E Super is a molecule that hovers close to the skin to create an indefinable aura round the wearer.
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 01 series celebrates just one of the scented world’s most used base notes—the sheer, velvety sandalwood-like Iso E Super—and by doing so, puts forth a radically different proposition: building two scents around a single aroma chemical normally just used in small concentrations. It’s never been done before. Escentric Molecules is the product of perfumer Geza Schoen (who’s designed fragrances for Clive Christian and many others).
If you have a bottle of Molecule and feel that it smells of nothing, be patient. Keep using it. The velvety woody note is highly sensitive to body chemistry and twists and turns as it evolves, combining with the wearers’ own natural scent to create an extraordinary alluring quality. The science of scent is truly on display and is sure to delight those woody fragrance aficionados who love to venture forth and discover something devastatingly unique. A true phenomenon in its own right.
