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.
Love all of the Molecules! This one smells lovely and will be used for layering.
Our Impression of Molecule 02
I received a sample in one of the other orders I purchased so I decided to order it. This oil smells great without being overpowering. As a sidenote: this company has great customer service. I received the wrong oil by mistake and the correction was made ASAP.
So the part that made me happy, is that what I got was exact! The only problem is that it’s escentric 02, not Molecule 02! I’ve tried to reach out to see if I could return and get something for the same price and haven’t heard back yet! It would be different to me if I was expecting to get Escentric 02, but as it says clearly in the title (Molecule 02). Molecule 02 is not what I received! I don’t want my money back. I would just like to receive what I ordered or something else of my choosing for the same price. I did not use what I received! I opened it up and smelled it, and then put the cap back on. However with all this, the copy of Escentric 02 is on point!
I am completely satisfied with my order. I was skeptical at first but I have been getting non-stop compliments. I definitely will be shopping again.
Surprisingly Nice. Has some undertones that would be suitable for a man but I like wearing it myself
