Molecule 02 consists of the single pure Ambroxan molecule. It has a subtle sensual quality with a radiant, long-lasting dry. It is a crystal with a chemical structure identical to ambrox derived from ambergris.
For centuries, ambergris was perhaps the most prized ingredient in perfumery. It is a somewhat mysterious substance expelled by the sperm whale that only reaches its fine aroma 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 aromatic molecules that make up its scent. By far the best of these is the nature-identical molecule, Ambroxan.
Ambergris has always been valued for its refinement and sensuality. This quality persists in Ambroxan. “It has a fresh, almost mineral quality,” says perfumer Geza Schoen, “that lingers until drydown.” Ambroxan was isolated from plant sources in 1950.
