Escentric Molecules portables are 30ml fragrances that slot into sleek, minimalist cases for maximum portability. Each metal case is blasted with stainless steel ‘sand’ to burnish the surface to a soft lustre. It is then anodised for high durability.
The upper face of the Escentric 02 case lid is stamped with the letter e in binary code: 01100101 and the number 02.
Ambroxan has a subtle sensual quality with a radiant, long-lasting drydown.
Escentric 02 contains 13.5% Ambroxan* in a formula designed to amplify its mineral note. It also contains hedione (green jasmine bud), a ‘gin and tonic’ accord, “and a hint of the Austrian lemonade called almdudler”. Geza Schoen describes the final effect as ‘super-longlasting freshness into the drydown, together with a subtle sensuality.’
*13.5% is the maximum percentage of Ambroxan that can be dissolved in a fragrance compound. Any more, and the Ambroxan begins to crystallize out of the solution.
