Javanol is a synthetic fragrance material created by the fragrance and flavor company, Givaudan. It was first introduced in 2001 and has since gained popularity in the perfume industry due to its woody, creamy, and musky scent.

Javanol is a type of sandalwood scent, but it has a more modern and abstract twist to it. It is described as a soft, smooth, and velvety fragrance note, with hints of citrus and floral undertones. Its versatility has made it a popular ingredient in a wide range of fragrances, including floral, woody, and oriental perfumes.

Some famous fragrances that use Javanol include:

  • Escentric Molecules Molecule 04
  • Comme des Garçons Wonderwood
  • Prada Infusion d'Iris
  • Tom Ford Private Blend Oud Wood Intense
  • Diptyque Tam Dao

Javanol has been praised for its ability to provide a long-lasting and consistent scent, while also being less irritating to the skin compared to some other fragrance ingredients. It has also been used in various other industries, such as household products, soaps, and candles, due to its pleasant and appealing scent.
