Molecule 02 - Escentric Molecules
Eau De Toilette
Molecule 02 consists of the molecule Ambroxan pure and singular.
Ambroxan has a subtle sensual quality with a radiant, long-lasting drydown. It is a crystal with a chemical structure identical to the ambrox derived from ambergris. For centuries ambergris was perhaps the most prized ingredient in perfumery. It is a somewhat mysterious substance expelled by the cachalot or sperm whale which only attains its fine scent after a long maturation floating in the ocean. Ambergris is rarely found these days, and the ‘amber’ in a modern fragrance will be a lab-created equivalent of some of the aroma-molecules that make up its scent. By far the finest of these is the nature-identical molecule, Ambroxan.
Ambergris was always valued for its refinement as well as its sensuality. This quality persists in Ambroxan.
“It has a fresh almost mineral quality, that lingers into the drydown.” says perfumer Geza Schoen.
Ambroxan was isolated from plant sources in 1950. Perfume Molecule 02 consists of the molecule Ambroxan pure and singular.
