Sleek, minimalist cases for maximum portability. Molecule 02 by Escentric Molecules is a Amber fragrance for women and men. Molecule 02 was launched in 2008. The nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen.
Each metal case is blasted with stainless steel ‘sand’ to burnish the surface to a soft lustre. It is then anodised for high durability.
The upper face of the Molecule 02 case lid is stamped with the letter m in binary code: 01101101 and the number 02.
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,” says perfumer, Geza Schoen, “that lingers into the drydown.”
AMBROXAN™ was isolated from plant sources in 1950.
The Molecule 02 fragrance is radically minimalist. It contains no odorants except the aroma-molecule, AMBROXAN™. Those customers who find the Molecule fragrances too subtle may wish to try the Escentric fragrances, which will always have a more powerful diffusion.
