Molecule 02

eau de toilette (EDT)

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.
