Okay, what I really want to know is what people can smell when I wear this which is a lot just here lately. What I can smell is the lime and the wood and the pepper and then it just sort of goes away except for I get this big old whoosh of something weird that I like a whole lot ever once in a while but then it leaves me high and dry all over again so I stick my face down my shirt front which you have got to be careful about on account of people will stare and I can smell it again. Over and over and over, again and again all day and all night because it will last that long and there it is and now it's gone and there it is and now it's gone and I still don't know what it is that I like about it. Darlene, she just shakes her head and rolls her eyes and sticks her nose up in the air like she don't never have no doubts and it's probably true, that's what gets so irritating about Darlene.

Lollipop wood. Very similar to Scent of Peace without the bitter grapefruit top note-this goes straight to the good stuff-a lightly sweetened, deep, rich, woody base. This became an instant HG and it puts and keeps me in a good mood. LOVE IT.

Sorry, Ladies. This was just plain horrid. This is a hamster cage recently cleaned with hopsital grade, fake-citrus smelling, disinfectant -- chemicals and cedar shavings. Remember that cleaner from the seventies -- Janitor in a Drum? Well, I just had a flashback. It lasted forever, and I waited patiently for a warmer, more mellow dry down. It did not occur. They could use this this stuff for chemical warfare or as a torture device -- I would spill my guts to make it stop.

Wow! Radical. This is the lightest brightest chartruese lime, all buzzy and fizzy. The scent molecules seem to bubble off the surface of the skin, floating up to tickle the nose & make you smile. Refreshing, yet dry. Perfect, perfect, perfect. Completely delish, with notes of not too sweet, incredibly smooth pineapple incense; it positively radiates thanks to the resionous golden-tart wood notes. Very modern and clean, it is lasting but transparent with light, perceptible sillage. I feel it is destined to be a classic. Something Jean Patou might do, given today's new materials. Holy Grail stuff.

I just got a sample of this from Lucky Scent, and I must say it has totally blown me away. I wasn't expecting much when I ordered it - I only ordered it because there's all this hype about it as it is going to be available here in Australia this month. It is absolutely gorgeous. I can't describe the scent -on me, it reminds me of Givenchy's Amarige, but heaps better. It's fresh, clean, modern, snazzy - not overly woody like I expected. Now I just have to save for the full size bottle!
UPDATE: OK, I gave in & bought a full size because the amount in the sample is not much because of the price. Was going to get it shipped in from overseas, but was too scared because of the cost, so have ordered it from here. I'm trying to justify the hefty price tag by the fact that it's a decent size bottle (100mL), and I haven't bought a perfume since 2003!! At first, I really smell the pink pepper, but then it fades into a beautiful fresh smell. The interesting thing is that even though I can't smell it on me at times during the day, other people can, and it 'reappears' to my senses at different times of the day. Even the next day, it still reappears on and off.

While I'm not as eloquent as other reviewers in describing fragrance, I can only say that as a critic of many touted fragrances, this one knocks my socks off. Peppery, clean, sultry, fresh...perfection to the extreme. I find myself reaching for this time and time again whether I'm wearing jeans or cashmere; it's just that good. I have never received as many compliments as I get when I wear this stunning fragrance. Never overpowers yet completely unforgettable...if only I weren't so fickle, this would be my HG of all perfume...

I have a sample of this scent, and I adore it. I'm generally kind of neutral on pink pepper and lime notes, but they are a lovely counterpoint to the smooth woodiness of Iso E Super. I know that Escentric Molecules fragrances are based on unusually high concentrations of a synthetic chemical, but this doesn't smell synthetic to me. In fact, it smells rather exotic and natural, like the essence of a rare rainforest tree, with sturdy branches and young, moist, tender, greenish-brown shoots growing from them. After the top notes have faded, the tenacious Iso E Super clings close to the skin for hours, and every so often I get a soft breath of scent that manages to be at once clean, fresh, earthy, and woody. Better living through chemistry, indeed. I can't wait to try Molecule 01.

Nose-tingling pepper sweetened by a hint of lime and smoothed out with cedar wood. Escentric 01 is remarkably like L'Artisan Poivre Piquant -- smooth white pepper -- and even more like, as BasiaS mentions below, the latter half of Ormonde Jayne's Ormonde Women in its pink peppercorn drydown. I am not a large pepper fan, but admit that this is fairly nice and intriguing; if I didn't already own a bottle of Ormonde, I might even be fairly tempted to buy it.

Wow, I hate to be the sole voice of dissent, but I don't like this at all. It's a very average linear, synthetic and masculine woody fragrance to me. I don't get any citrus to speak of. As with all perfumes I dislike, the lasting power is excellent. ;-) I spilled nearly my entire sample vial on the floor of my office, and now I'm surrounded by fumes that are making me queasy. Sigh.

I've never experienced a scent quite like this. Love the way it starts with a lime/pepper blast, and, within minutes, morphs into it's drydown, a soft, somewhat smoky, woodsy scent, with hints of the lime and pepper. To me, this is the ultimate "skin scent," very sheer, but with good lasting power (after spritzing in the morning, on and off throughout the day, I get whiffs of something wonderful, and realize that the "something wonderful" is emanating from me.) This is certainly not a scent that screams upon your entrance, but one that seems to draw people closer to you. I agree with other reviewers that this reminds me a bit of Ormonde Jayne (I am a huge fan of her scents, Champaca being number one on my list), but I think the subtlety of this scent makes it quite unique. HG? I'm not sure about that yet, but I must say this comes darn close, as I, like another reviewer, have actually considered "stockpiling"...can't imagine being without it.

I find this to be a deceivingly simple scent that somehow keeps drawing me in, time after time. The peppery-lime opening is quite lovely, and the soft cedar base does indeed remind me of Ormonde Jayne's fragrances. This is a wonderful, spicy skin scent, but I can't decide whether it's worth the high price tag. Notes: pink pepper, lime peel, orris, incense, cedar.

Light, close, long-lasting, woodsy, clean. There's a hint of something -- wood? bergamot? citrus? -- that I recognize from the drydown of my Top Three (Parfum de Therese, Ormonde, Champaca). It's almost 9:00 p.m., and this scent was applied at 6:15 a.m. It's still going on and I'm sold on it. Thumbs up.

This has a nice black pepper and citrusy scent on me, like lime as someone mentioned. Somehow, the amber is really not as apparent as one would think. I would love a big bottle, although the bottle itself is pretty darn ugly, like some graphic artist's first try at selling an ad. The fragrance is very faint and I think it was meant to be toned down and elusive. It would be very nice for those who might be afraid of intense fragrances.

Oh my. I'm not quite ready to throw out all my other bottles but I could see this being my work HG. It manages to combine being transparent, close to the skin and very soft with amazing lasting power. It has sillage and at the same time it doesn't - it's most peculiar. I know I smell great but it's almost imperceptible - just a slight hint of something wonderful. It's a very light lime, pepper, woods mix. Will I rebuy? Absolutely - I may even stockpile.

As you go through life, through your years of living, you come to know what to expect. And so it is with Escentric 01. There is nothing supernatural or surreal here. It is only a perfume. Yet - - - - As you live your life, you look into faces, again and again. Then once, by chance, probably, you look into a face of one, human like the others but you see something different, something that captures your heart, your spirit and your soul; you know this is the one for you, the same, but different. When this one you have stumbled upon breathes, they speak volumes to you.... it's only their breathing a whisper but you know everything in your world has changed. They are only human but in your eyes the world is inside them and so are you.....and so with Escentric 01. It's only a fragrance, nothing complex or unusual, but "my" scented world is here inside the scent. It speaks volumes with a tiny whisper. My favorite fragrance in the world, at least for this moment in my life....
