Escentric Molecules portables are 30ml fragrances that slot into sleek, minimalist cases for maximum portability. 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 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.
Please note: We have performed a general modernisation of the packaging introducing our new branding elements and logo. We wanted to retain our trademark design but remix the existing branding in a contemporary way, so there is consistency across the collective line of Escentric Molecules fragrances.
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.
