7. Molecule 01 & 02 by Escentric Molecules

Presented in pairs, this fragrance explores the qualities of a single aroma molecule in two different ways. While focusing on the essential aroma molecule, each iteration chooses to add ingredients to the formula that enhance the aroma molecule, amplifying its key characteristics. The Molecule fragrance in each pair takes a radically minimalist approach. It contains no odorants other than the aroma-molecule, pure and singular.

The truly unique aspect of these two fragrances is how they pair with the wearer. Due to their minimalistic and scientifically-approached qualities, the fragrances actually seem to adapt to the wearer, changing its form slightly from one person to the next. So while others may buy this scent, there will never be someone wearing it like you do.

Molecule 01 Details

Characterized by a hyper-modern cedarwood note with a velvety sensation, this fragrance hovers close to the skin to create an indefinable aura round the wearer. To the wearer, it seems to vanish and then re-appear. This is due to the way it bonds with receptors in the olfactory system, only slowly releasing to make way for a fresh charge of the molecule on the receptors. Learn more on the Molecule 01 website.

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.” Learn more on the Molecule 02 website.
