Escentric Molecules Molecule 04 & Escentric 04 Perfume Reviews

Escentric Molecules have a bit of a cult-following in world of niche perfume and in the world of fashionable people¹. But, it’s never really been a line that I’ve been drawn to despite liking the perfumes on other people. They’re the sort of perfumes that you wear for others and not yourself. I wear perfume for me.

Escentric Molecules has launched two/binary new perfumes in their minimalist collection, Molecule 04 and Escentric 04:

EauMG’s Perfume Picks for Summer 2017

I kept meaning to post this sooner, but I’ve been lazy enjoying summer. If you’re looking for something to compliment summer, here are my suggestions:

tropical perfumes

Tropical/Beach Scents

The perfumes that smell like the beach or at least make you feel like a glamorous beach bum.
