Thoughts: escentric 01 by escentric molecules

To say that I am picky when it comes to perfume is an understatement, I can name on one hand the amount of perfumes that I like and would actually hand over my own money for! I am a creature of habit where fragrance is concerned and I find myself wearing Thierry Mugler's Alien on a daily basis. Perfume repurchases are a rare occurrence, even when I find something I like I will generally become bored halfway through the bottle and go back to my old faithful.
So to purchase a scent on the internet without smelling it first is weird for anyone especially me but that is how the new addition to my small collection came about...

escentric 01 by escentric molecules is somewhat different, most of you are probably aware that it has been given beyond rave reviews by those that wear it (my favourite being from someone who was let off paying a taxi fare because the driver liked the smell so much!)

The blurb behind this scent is that compared to your standard perfumes which contain thousands of molecules, this contains just 1...I'm not going to pretend that I understand what this means, science was always my least favourite subject at school, basically it is supposed to smell so amazing that it stops people in their tracks....sold!

When it arrived, I teared into the packaging like a woman possessed, and this is how the scene played out...
"hmmmm, did I buy CK one by mistake?"
*double check*

So it wasn't love at first sniff, to me it smelled just like the musky older sibling of CK one, I liked it though and was interested in what my family and friends had to say.

And in 3 weeks the feedback I have recieved has been....
Me..."Do you like my perfume?"
Boyfriend..."It's OK"...
Best friend... "It's OK"...
Friend..."Are you wearing D&G Light Blue?"

While I didn't expect them to pick me up and rub me on themselves like a magazine sample (ok i did!) these were not the responses I had expected to get from a perfume that has had such amazing reviews.

Anyway I feel like I'm going off on a tangent so to quickly round up my thoughts, at £30 for a 30ml bottle I think that it's a steal especially since it seems to be building up quite a cult following. The packaging is nothing special.I describe the scent as a citrusy musk,it's almost manly, if that makes any sense.I wouldn't recommend buying perfume on line.I don't dislike it by any means, but it's not love.

So far I have not been asked by any random strangers what delightful scent I am wearing, tragically not been let off paying for anything and if you happen to bump into me in the street and ask what perfume I am wearing I can safely say my reply will be, "Alien."

Have you tried escentric 01?
