Description and usage notes:

As with all pyrazines this is used in tiny traces – Chip Pyrazine at 1% in TEC is strongly earthy and nutty as well as potato-chip like. There is a corn / popcorn aspect as well as a musty note. Not as devastatingly powerful as most pyrazines it still requires heavy dilution and the 1% we are offering here is probably best further diluted prior to use in blending.

Naturally present in cocoa, chocolate as well as cooked meats, this is a more versatile material than you might expect, and an ideal component of the dank, earthy accords that have become popular recently in the more adventurous fine fragrances.

Other materials that can contribute to such accords include the even more powerful Geosmin, 2-Ethyl Fenchol, Terranol,  Rootanol, Verdol and you might also consider Earthy Pyrazine.
