The genius behind Escentric Molecules’ formula of perfect simplicity is just how perfectly they select their featured ingredients. And for the newest round, they’ve picked Javanol, a cutting-edge synthetic with sandalwood qualities. But unlike the velvety sandalwood of Molecule 01’s ISO-E Super, Javanol is intriguingly crisp, with a lively, almost tropical undercurrent beneath the smooth woodiness. Hovering nimbly above the skin with the Molecule line’s signature transparency, it wears as a deftly calibrated aura of scent, weightless but impactful and impossible to dislike. Equally suited to the most casual of comforts or the edgiest of styles, Molecule 04 is, quite simply, whatever you make of it.
