Javanol is with an odor threshold of th 0.02 ng/l air, a vapor pressure of vp 6,940 ng/l, and a resulting odor value of OV 347,000, currently the most intense synthetic sandalwood perfumery material. With its warm-creamy, typical sandalwood odor it marks the current end point in the evolution of sandalwood synthetics from Sandela (1960), to Osyrol (1973), to Sandalore (1976), to Sandal Mysore Core (1978), to Polysantol (1985) and Ebanol (1986). Javanol was discovered by Jurek Bajgrowicz in 1996, and has been used in countless successful fragrances. One of the most daring overdoses of ca. 36% has been employed by Alessandro Gualtieri in 'Bergamask' (Orto Parisi, 2014), together with ca. 10% Ebanol and ca. 3% Polysantol, totalling to almost 50% of campholenal derivatives. In 'Bergamask', α-sinensal from mandarin oil counterbalances this extreme santal note, the fishy note of the which is then being masked by bergamot. So you can use 'Bergamask' for scenting the Javanol pendant. However, since 2017 Javanol is also directly available in perfume shops as 'molecule 04' (escentric molecules, 2017) and in addition featured as protagonist of the minimalistic composition 'escentric 04' (escentric molecules, 2017) by Geza Schön – so plenty of possibilities to impregnate that pendant. The pendant displays the global engergy minimum of the most intense enantiomer of Javanol, and with a spacious hole (ca.3.6 mm) in the oxygen ring it can even be used as a keychain, just like the Androstenol model, on which Javanol nicely superimposes.
The dimensions of this Javanol pendant are ca.4.2 cm × 2.2 cm × 1.5 cm, and the hole for the necklace (not included) has a diameter of ca.3.6 mm. It thus fits easily to a great variety of necklaces but looks especially stunning on gold or rose gold plated Thomas Sabo Charm Club 'Glam & Soul' necklaces, www.thomassabo.com.
