“I wanted to create something unconventional, not too perfumistic, something for my friends who said they didn’t like fragrance.”
 - Geza Schoen

Escentric Molecule 02 celebrates the fresh and sensual resonance of nature-identical Ambroxan in two different fragrances. At Diverse we assume nearly everyone has at least one Escentric fragrance they feel attracted to..

Molecule 02 – a molecule
Escentric 02 – a formula

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.
