Description and usage notes:

One of the most unusual, powerful and, frankly obnoxious, perfumery ingredients available anywhere.

From the name you might expect Cadaverine to smell like a rotting corpse and while there is certainly an element of that, most people are immediately struck by the overwhelming note of human sperm – at this dilution way, way stronger smelling than real ejaculate – which of course makes it ideal for those seeking to create perfumes with pheromones, sexuality and lust in mind.

If you’re contemplating purchasing this material for use in a fragrance we must warn you to be very cautious in dosage: it’s easy to end up with something completely unwearable!  We would recommend further dilution to 0.1% or 0.01% before any attempt at blending is made.

The pure material is quite toxic and so we don’t offer a greater concentration, but at this dilution it requires only the usual level of careful handling ascribed to most pure perfume ingredients.

The use of MMB as the solvent and addition of a small amount of BHT ensure that the solution keeps well in cool dark conditions: just as well because you’ll only need small amounts at a time.
