Now I’m going to be careful with this one. Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules has somewhat of a cult following since being proclaimed the perfume of the not-really-a-perfume-just-one-molecule market. I’ve been craving it for a while, and a few months ago I finally bit the bullet and went for the smaller 30ml travel size (unfortunately still fairly pricey). After long days, sweaty workouts and the full force of our English elements it’s been well and truly put through it’s paces!

Honestly it’s quite a strange one, it feels quite masculine at first application, and that’s definitely a vibe that lingers around; seriously lingers around through almost everything actually… I haven’t experienced an undetectable ‘secret’ base to it that lures men in like sailors to mermaids (to my slight disappointment after reading the Cult Beauty reviews…) but it does give me a strange sort of confidence and self esteem boost that eases the internal panic about finally growing up, making me feel fairly sophisticated and like I actually know what I’m doing with my life… (I’m hoping this translates to those around me, though I reckon most people are still unconvinced).

I would one hundred percent recommend giving it a test before forking out for a bottle, but, if it’s reputation is really preceding itself, odds are you and everyone around you will love it. I know I do.

Any other perfumes with a cult following you’d recommend trying out?
