Molecule 01 + Patchouli - Eau de Toilette
Now Molecule 01 gets a plus one. In three iterations, it is paired with a single scent ingredient.
In 2006, Escentric Molecules launched Molecule 01, a single aroma-molecule in a bottle. The molecule was Iso E Super, an abstract synthetic created in a lab at IFF. “Molecule 01 is an exceptional molecule: radiant, velvety, cocooning. There’s nothing else like it, people find it irresistible. It’s mysteriously effective on its own as Molecule 01, it’s great in a fragrance as in Escentric 01. But recently I started to wonder if there might be another way to play with it. What if I could take the molecule and add just one other beautiful ingredient and see how they danced together in the bottle? That’s Molecule +.”
Iso E Super + Patchouli
Patchouli is a unique natural. Unlike 99% of perfume ingredients, we associate it with a particular period, with the sixties and seventies and that bohemian spirit. It has a cool, rather aloof woodiness to it. - Two qualities of patchouli have been used in the fragrance.
The biggest chunk is Patchouli Coeur which is a very clean, soft patchouli oil fraction with the camphor-like top note removed.
The other is a patchouli oil from Indonesia to round it out with a little bit of a top note.
The result is a sophisticated, clean patchouli that pairs fantastically well with Molecule 01.
