Solvents & additives

Materials used primarily as solvents or additives, usually odourless or nearly so.
Note that most liquid perfumery materials will also function as solvents: this category is for those used for that purpose either as general solvents or for particular materials.
Also in this category are additives with other functions, such as stabilisers, that are either odourless or not mainly used for their odour.
