To the initiated, Moloko, the futuristic cocktail in A Clockwork Orange, conjures all sorts of associations: futuristic mod fashion, milky whiteness, and a dangerous, intoxicating vitality. With Vetiver Moloko, Ex Nihilo capitalizes on that imagery, delivering a fragrance on the one hand earthy and spiky, on the other soft and milky, which combine for an addictive, slightly unnerving symphony of scents that evolve on the skin with fascinating effect.
Vetiver Moloko opens with bright, lightly bitter bergamot and soft rose notes, revealing its dual nature straight from the beginning. In the heart, the tantalizing milk accord blurs the olfactory picture for a narcotizing effect, while woodsy cypress buzzes along the surface. Once the vetiver reveals itself, we realize just how potent this cocktail has been all along, while a drop of vanilla at the end re-balances. Whether you’re out with the droogs or on the prowl for a chelloveck or devotchka, Vetiver Moloko is not to be missed.
