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 that 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.
Wait a few seconds before moving or rubbing.
One or two sprays are enough for a lasting scent.
Conceived in a laboratory at IFF in 1973, this intriguing molecule remained a secret within the exclusive realm of perfumery until the debut of Escentric Molecules. Though subtle, its elusive essence can be found in the backdrop of numerous fragrances designed for both men and women. Perfumers cherish it for its sumptuous, enveloping quality.
