Molecule 04Sold Out
Following on in the Escentric Molecules’ tradition of focusing on one or more modern synthetics for the “meat” of a fragrance, Molecule 04 focuses entirely on Javanol, a powerful Givaudan sandalwood synthetic that replaces natural sandalwood oil. In the hands of anyone else other than Geza Schoen, this could have been a disaster – Javanol is so potent that even a touch too much is, well, too much.
But this is a triumph. Schoen has deployed his natural deftness of touch to ensure that the rosy, creamy, and steamy, tropical facets of Javanol are brought forward, and all its heaviness is left behind. It feels light, almost fresh, with a green “stripped bark” note that brings in an element of the great outdoors. "What I love about Javanol is its almost psychedelic freshness, ” says Geza Schoen. "It smells as if liquid metal grapefruit peel were poured over a bed of velvety cream colored roses." We agree, adding only that this is a fragrance whose subtle power and radiance can be best perceived in the sillage rather than directly on the skin, giving you your own personal invisible cloak of gorgeousness.

(Disclaimer: I find most scents too strong and too floral - I have had a hard time finding something that smells like “me.”)
Very strong at first - granny, floral, musky, mature - but it mostly faded away to an almost powdery sillage. Wearing it made me feel like I was eating dusty soap. It eventually smelled kind of green/chlorophyll. I ended up washing it off after less that an hour.
Simplistic sandalwood that is just strong enough and lingers on and off throughout the wearing. Still haven't been able to pinpoint longevity but I'd say it's somewhere between average and excellent. If you want something challenging this is not it.
