Niche line Escentric Molecules has launched two new fragrances, Escentric 02 and Molecule 02:
Escentric 02 [shown] uses an unparalleled concentration of ambroxan combined with vetiver and muscone, a particularly gorgeous nature-identical musk. Orris, elderflower extract and hedione add an instant effervescence to the topnote, giving it a fresh 'mineral' effect. Escentric 02 is a clear, clean scent that dries down to something warm, sexy and elusive.
Molecule 02 is based on ambroxan, a nature-identical aroma-chemical. Molecule 02 has a distinct nutty, warm scent that is a symphony of boronal, ambrinol and its best-smelling aromatic part, ambroxan. This fragrance has an almost mineral smoothness which subtly expands to envelop you.
Escentric Molecules Escentric 02 and Molecule 02 were developed by perfumer Geza Schoen. They can be found now at Harvey Nichols in the UK, £69.50 each for 100 ml, concentration unknown. Many thanks to Michelle for the link! Update: see reviews of Molecule 02 & Escentric 02.
