X(3872) still presents many puzzles more than a decade after its discovery. Some of its properties, like the isospin violating decays, can easily be accommodated in a molecular model, whereas its other properties, such as radiative decays can be more naturally explained in the quarkonium picture. The best of these schemes can be combined in a picture of X(3872) where it is dominantly a molecular state with some charmonium components. In this work, we present a model based on heavy quark symmetry which describes X(3872) as a superposition of molecular and charmonium components.
