Molecule 02 Details

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.

About the Fragrance

Escentric Molecules celebrates perfumery as the art of chemistry.

The fragrances are presented in binary pairs. Each pair explores the qualities of one aroma-molecule in two different ways.

The Escentric fragrance in each pair focuses on an exceptional aroma-molecule. The other ingredients in the formula are chosen to enhance this aroma-molecule, amplifying its key qualities.

The Molecule fragrance in each pair takes a radically minimalist approach. It contains no odorants other than the aroma-molecule, pure and singular.

Stripping away the pretension that often surrounds the fragrance world, Escentric Molecules focuses on what is truly exceptional about perfumery, the aroma-molecules that are the perfumer’s palette.
