Javanol is a sandalwood-type molecule that retains the radiance and endurance of natural sandalwood, but is sheer and transparent like no sandalwood in nature.
“What I love about Javanol is its almost psychedelic freshness,” says creator Geza Schoen. “It smells as if liquid metallic grapefruit peel were poured over a bed of velvety cream-coloured roses.”
Javanol is like Iso E Super, the molecule in Escentric Molecules 01, in some ways. Like Iso E Super, it comes and goes. The person wearing it loses the ability to smell it after a short while, only to re-connect with it later.
Javanol does not exist in nature. It was created in a laboratory at Givaudan in 1996.
Molecule 04 consists of the molecule Javanol, pure and singular.
