Escentric Molecules, Molecule 02 Eau de Toilette
The 02 series features the molecule is ambroxan, a nature-identical aroma chemical of the prized (and forbidden) ambergris. Ambroxan can best be described as a fresh, almost mineral smoothness which subtly expands to envelop you. Natural ambroxan is one of the lusted after components of ambergris, the prohibitively costly, rare excretion of a sperm whale. To be absolutely honest, when we tried this, we were shocked by its subtlety…and we mean subtle. There is a slight mineral-like edge to it but it's transparent and mild. Molecule 02 is very light yet always present and hovering about four inches above where you applied it, especially after a few hours. The term “skin scent” has never been more embodied than in this perfume and we bet it will both fascinate and confuse perfume lovers for a long time to come. If there's anyone in your life who “can't stand perfume”, you've just found a little bottle of perfection for them.
